Game Crashes when I walk up and into the very tall guard towers surrounding large military base west of Tisy causing "Bad Module" error.
Need More Info, NormalPublic


Often, but not every time, ,my game crashes kicking me completely out and displaying an error that reads as "Bad Module". This happens when I am climbing up and into the very tall guard towers surrounding the North Western-most military base some have been calling 'Tisy base'. The stairs allow the character to climb into the tower very quickly unlike a ladder. Typically I will climb up and step into the tower and at that moment my game will crash, kicking me out of DayZ SA and back to windows 10. An error will then be produced claiming that Windows is trying to find a solution and then changing to an error box that states "Bad Module".


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Operating System Version
Version 1709 OS build 16299.248
Game Crash
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Locate tallest military base guard tower with ascending steps. 2. Run up the steps and walk into the tower. 3. Game will crash, kicking you out entirely and back to Windows 10. 4. Windows searches for a way to fix the error. 5. Windows 10 informs you it cannot fix the error. 6. Windows 10 displays error claiming "Bad Module".

Additional Information

I think this crash might happen when Im carrying something in my arms, like a gun or an oil barrel. I'm not 100% positive about that. I was carrying an oil barrel when it happend just now, but not for sure about the 5-10 other times the game crashed running into the tall tower.

Uploaded DxDiag and DayZ folder as requested.

Hello chadnorton1975 and thank you for the report.
The bad module error is related to the windows 10 fall creators update and affects other games as well. According to the information provided by other players experiencing this error, it is supposedly caused by windows "Game Mode".
Can you try the following and let us know if it has resolved the issue?

Open the Windows registry and navigate to the following location;


Here, look for a key called AllowAutoGameMode. If it’s not there, create it. Right-click inside the right panel and select New>DWORD (32-bit) Value. Rename the new value AllowAutoGameMode.

By default, this key will have the value 0. It will disable Game Mode. If you want to enable Game Mode, change its value to 1.
