DayZ Start Resolution
Need More Info, NormalPublic


First of all: I have 2 monitors and my friend aswell.

2 Problems:

  • When im starting DayZ it starts in the bottom right corner of my screen and covers about 2/3 of the screen, which is not that bad, because i just have to minimize it and max it again
  • When my friends starts DayZ its always in the wrong resolution and he has to set the right resolution and restart it once, then it works fine


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Game Startup
Steps To Reproduce

Starting DayZ with 2 monitors

Additional Information

We are both using Win10 / 64bit system

I have GTX970 + driver version: 388.31

Hello moLife and thank you for the report.
Do you click onto your desktop/into browser or some other window right after launching the game? Also, what are the resolutions of the screens that you and your friend uses?

Sometimes i do and sometimes i dont (it doesnt seems to matter).

We are both using 1920x1080 monitors.

Hello moLife.
Have you and your friend tried to delete the contents of your C:\Users\*username*\Documents\DayZ folder to see if it has any effect on the issues? Are any of you using any startup parameters when launching the game? Also, is your friends windows resolution set to the recommended value or is it it set to something else?

Didnt seem to work, i'll write in few days after some testing on that, maybe i can find as olution to it.

(It really isn't that annoying, so it doesn't matter so much)

Thanks for answering anyways!
