Vanilla DayZ Standalone Crashing on Startup
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Every time I start up DayZ Standalone it crashes before it finishes loading. I can load the launcher fine, but once I start up the game itself I make it to the first loading screen, but then crash at about 70-80%. After crashing I get the exit code: 0xC0000005 - STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION
