i had a similar issue, take a look here

im getting session lost some-times after 5 to 10 minutes of gameplay and no one looks like to care enough for my ticket :(

maybe your connection is dropping for a few seconds?

i tested it. Ping the server i play on with CMD and -t and i get zero packet lost. my connection to server is okey while session is lost through CMD pinging. also, it happens sometimes that i get 1 packet lost and session is lost which shouldn't be the case really, because this wont happen in anyother games i know. if you got 1 session lost, and then everything is good, the game should be able to reach or some how skip that single packet lost (Dunno the tech word for it) because any other game (Dota, APB Reloaded, battlefield etc..) that i play is okey with that.

since .58 i got session lost and no message received errors without connection problems.

every time i got the problems i still can speak with friends in teamspeak.

when i got no message received, my friends can continue, i have to restart dayz, because i cant see any server.

when i got the session lost, my friend told my "signature_timed out" for many players on this server and i cant continue on this server. when i try to join i see "please wait" for more then 5 minutes then i can run for 5 seconds and again "session lost"

every other server runs fine and normal for me.

Hi Skylar,

Could you try out the following steps please?

  1. Move the entire "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps" folder to your desktop. Your "SteamApps" folder should now be at the following location: "C:\Users\<username>\Desktop\SteamApps".
  2. Move the "DayZ" folder out of the "C:\Users\<username>\Desktop\SteamApps\common" folder and subsequently delete the "DayZ" folder.
  3. Uninstall Steam while making sure the "SteamApps" folder is still on your desktop.
  4. Install a new version of Steam.
  5. Go to the new "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps" folder.
  6. Move everything inside the old "SteamApps" folder on your desktop to the new "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps" folder.
  7. Install DayZ again.
