[0.51 Experimental] Instant game crash: "Initialization error 2." Can't launch the game.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Instant game crash: "Initialization error 2." and the game doesn't even start. No RPT or minidumps.

Re-installing experimental, verifying cache multiple times disable Anti Virus and Firewall didn't help.

I'm running things as admin.

Stable works normally.

There's no RPT or any dumps created from sessions that I try to start with experimental. They're dated about month ago and RPT got only things from stable. Sorry but there's nothing to help you out. Crashes too fast to even create any dumps.

OK I tried literally everything but I finally found the solution. I had set use large pages from registry to allow large pages files for DayZ.exe but now that the .exe has changed it made the game crash instanlty. I did that because of fred42's tbbmalloc for large page files but now that the .exe has changed radically it doesn't work :P

Sorry for your time loss.

Hi St. Jimmy,
I am not sure if I understand your latest comment correctly, however I believe you had reverted some changes you've made which in turn stopped the crashes, right?
Please submit a new ticket if I misunderstood your comment and the issue is still present.
Thank you,
