Hello windstride.
If you remove the contents of your C:\Users\*username*\Documents\DayZ folder, does the issue still persist? And if so, will -nocharmenu solve the issue? Also, are there any .mdmp files being created in your appdata folder?

Hey, i have tried deleting the Dayz Folder in Documents, no help, and also, no, -nocharmenu in launch parameters didn't solve it. And no, the only filed generated when the game crashes seems to be theses .RPT files, even if i launch "Dayz (with logs)" :/

i've created this topic on reddit and found some people that seems to have the same issue, also i said and tried some stuff that's in the topic:

Thank you for the update windstride.
Were there any recent Windows updates on your computer prior to the issue starting to occur? And has the issue started to occur with the release of the stress test 53 version or were you able to play the stress test 53 previously?

No, actually, i blocked my system from updating, my windows can't update, because in one of the updates my ethernet driver got screwed up and my internet would lose connection constantly, couldn't find a way to fix it, had to rollback and block updates. You think that could cause the issue? A bit outdated version of windows 10. But answering your other question: Yes, i am certain that the issue started with the release of #53 update, i could play before that, and i can still play on experimental branch.

it's gotta have something to do with some change in #53 update i suppose

Hello windstride.
We have indeed found a possible cause, I will update the ticket as soon as there is a fix on the public version.

Thanks Geez, good luck for us on that, i'm eager to test the latest build x)

Hey windstride maybe you using Plays.TV to record videos or something i heard that if you download newest version. It makes games to crash before starting even...

No... i dont even know that, actually i tried closing most of the softwares in my pc to try and launch the game, no luck

Yaay, my crash was fixed Geez, just out of curiosity, was this my issue?

"fixed a client crash that could occur to users with space in their windows username"

Hello windstride.
Yes, this has indeed been the issue which was causing the crashes for certain users and has been fixed with yesterdays Experimental release. I am going to set this ticket as Resolved now, but feel free to submit another one in case you run into any issues in the future.

Cheers Geez, good work
