[Stable 1.01] Animation permanently blocks the character movement
Need More Info, NormalPublic


When the animation binded to the F key is executed during the run (default speed, not sprint), the character movement is permanently blocked. Only relog can help.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Operating System Version
Windows 10 v1803
Steps To Reproduce


  1. Log into the game
  2. Start running forward on normal speed by just pressing W
  3. Keep W pressed, then press F4 for example to play binded animation
  4. Stop your character

Your character will be unable to change position. When you press W again it will play "run animation", but your character will not move.

Additional Information

Can't be reproduced on another machine.

Sometimes it moves very slow. The only way to get it unblock is relog. This problem is fully reproducible for me.

I second this. Have become stuck on the spot when using F2 wave animation but using it again seems to un-stick sometimes.

Hello Radoslaw and thank you for the report.
If you verify the game data through Steam and delete the contents of your C:\Users\*username*\Documents\DayZ folder, do you still experience the issue?

I followed (kinda) your advice and tried it on another computer (fresh Win10 and DayZ installation) and I couldn't reproduce it. So it seems like this problem appears after patch from 1.0 to 1.01 only on my laptop.
