DayZ CFG issues (w/ new patches)
Assigned, NormalPublic


Hi @Geez for 1.03 could you erase everybodys DayZ Documents CFG files, and come with verified game files for next patch.

I've seen multiple new players starting DayZ for the first time since .62 or .63 and not being able to move at all, or change keybinds, etc.

This leads to people getting frustrating, and thinking the game is broken so they uninstall. (Not many know about verifying game files)

This is also frustrating in game, when some of the gesture hotkeys don't work for certain people and bug out.
An example of this, is doing a hold-up/robbery on someone, and telling them to put their hands-up via F5.
(This is since in early .63, there was no hands-up hotkey, so when they return to 1.02, it's not properly configured)

The problem, there's been so many people I've encountered that just bug out and can't put their hands up, so it makes it really hard for my bandit playstyle I loved.

TLDR; Please wipe the DayZ CFG and Documents files for every user for 1.03, to prevent these frustrating bugs from happening.


Operating System
Windows 8 x64
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Don't play the game for awhile (since 1.0, .63, .62)

Install and try to play...

You will get issues like not being able to move, or F5 (Hands up) not working. (So you need to verify game files)

Thank you xArmanR.
We are going to see what could be done about this.

Also, if you encounter player with such an issue, could you ask him to upload the corrupted configuration file under this ticket?

Haven't been able to play DayZ often lately, so will try but will probably won't be able to get a corrupted CFG file.
You could make a PSA on the forums or Twitter to send in corrupted/outdated CFG files, about people who face the bug where you can't move or use any UAction (due to keybindings refactor.)

Old users who played in the past and will start the game for the first time in awhile (since .63) they will most likely face this issue I'm betting, so this should probably be the target demographic.

Thanks for responding Geez :)
