The game worked perfectly fine the day before then I tried to play today and had an update for 1.09, now every time I try to load the game it gives me an error saying DayZ has exited in an unusual manner
- Operating System
- Windows 10
- Game Crash
Hi. I have the same problem with the same error code. Have tried to uninstall then install, and changed user to admin and tried to run Dayz as admin. But still get the same error as you. My Dayz also worked perfectly with 1.08.
Same issue as above, Ive fully rebuilt machine and cannot get past this error, Pulled Ram, Pulled Socket , Rebuild windows on another Drive Partition with same success,
Repeats upon reinstall
I have the same problem, deleted the folder as described on twitter, tried many solutions, it didn't help. But you know what's amazing? I downloaded a pirated version of the game and it works great! What did I pay money for?
As mentioned in the twitter post, besides deleting the 221100 folder, you also have to delete the configuration files from the documents folder (This can be done manually in C:\Users\*username*\Documents\DayZ by deleting all the files, or verifying the game through Steam and then checking that you want to delete the config files when the prompt to do so appears) in order for the game to work.
Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\*YourID*\
In there, you have the following folders
221100 for stable client
1024020 for experimental
Delete the whole 221100 folder.
Verify the game data through Steam and delete the configuration files when prompted to do so (Make sure Steam Cloud Sync is disabled prior to doing this)
It finally worked. Did it all as it said i the tweet.
First i disabled the cloud sync in steam under settings/cloud-
Then i deleted everything in the Dayz folder c\users\"username\Documents\Dayz. So that folder is empty.
Then i deleted 221100 folder and started the game.
Hope it works out for ya guys.
I've followed all steps several times. All to no avail. Any other methods or steps I can try to fix this issue hopefully before whenever this hotfix comes out?
Update: This works fine for me now when launching DayZ through Steam. The moment I launch DayZ via DayZ SA Launcher it immediately breaks it all. Effectively can only play official servers now.
