Random Game Crashes and Freezes
Acknowledged, WishlistPublic


Hi All,

I recently purchased DAYZ Standalone and I understand that it is in Alpha but i have been having some struggles. I Have a very high end gaming rig so it should have no problem playing the game DIMED on every aspect but it randomly locks up on me here are my specs:

AMD FX-9590 CPU (8x 4.70GHz/8MB L3 Cache) - With Liquid Cooling
ASUS Sabertooth 990FX
16 GB DDR3-1866
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 - 4GB
1000 Watt Power Supply
1 TB SSD - Primary
2 TB Data Drive
Windows 8.1
Dual 36" Monitors

Sometimes it will allow me to play for a couple hours, sometimes i cant even get into a server. Sometimes it causes a complete system lock and sometimes it will just error to the desktop.

I have monitored my system Temps and nothing is out of normal parameters.
I am not playing in experimental.
There are no other programs that are running.

I am at a complete loss of how to proceed

Please Advise....


Legacy ID
Game Crash
Steps To Reproduce

I have tried many different aspects to recreate this but it is completely random.

I have tried:
Every configuration of in game setting changes (Video settings drastically reduced) Etc..!
Setting Processor Affinity (so only 1 Physical Processor is utilized Core 0 & 1)
Complete game Uninstall/Reinstall
Disabling everything possible (Do Not Run Antivirus)
Disabling one of my 2 Monitors
Ive monitored my System temperatures to ensure its not getting over 70C
Probably a lot more that I am forgetting as of this moment

Additional Information

I have attached my ZIP file that should have my crash data. as well as the DxDiag file as well.

Thank you.

Hi camarokwiley and sorry about your trouble.
The programmers looked into this and made a couple small fixes which should hopefully help. Please let me know if this is still an issue after the next Steam patch.

I had another crash.

Stated that "The instruction at 0x00ae9723 referenced memory at 0x0000002c. The memory could not be read"

Please Help

Just had an entire system crash after i reported my last comment.

"thread exception not handled"

Do i need to re-upload the files again?

Ok so i figured out this problem. This game does not like an 8 core processor. I went into my Bios and turned off 4 cores. Game runs great now... even though im currently stuck under a house.
