please provide them with your crash logs:

We need you to upload a few files from your computer. Specifically, the crash dumps that are generated with every crash and the dxdiag report from your computer.

Getting your DxDiag file:

Open the Start menu
Write "dxdiag"
Press enter
A window will open
Click "Save all information"
You will get a text file - that's what we need

Getting your crash dumps:

Go to this file location: "C:\Users<Name>\AppData\Local"
There you should see a DayZ folder.
Create a .zip or .rar file of that folder.

Then take the .zip/.rar and the DxDiag file and upload them to the Feedback Tracker issue. You can do so by dragging/dropping your files into the Description text field for example. Use the "New DayZ Private Bug Report" form when sending us crash logs as they may contain personal data from your computer.

I've seen quite a few people with the crashing in the latest patch

Thank you for the report MrMan3.
This is a known issue and it is being worked on internally.

Are the crash dump files and dxdiag still needed?

Hello MrMan3.
You can indeed send it just to be sure it is not a diferrent kind of crash. However, please create a private ticket through the private report form to do so (New DayZ Private Bug Report).

@MrMan3 I have not yet had this problem. This is probably due to some mods. Or only some of the list items, when a combination of items for repair.

This problem was super rare for me but my friend who play on the same server (official) had this issue everytime.

Now I have this issue more often after the last patch I assume, unless it is all random. Opened 3 cans 2 of them made me crash.

Also I am playing with 0 mods on an official server.
