1.19 Launcher Server list EXTREMELY SLOW since update
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The 1.19 server list takes forever to load since 1.19

Sometimes it loads 100 servers a second, sometimes only 10 per second!

Launcher appears is not clearing the appdata cache to refresh server list!!!

Some additional info on this:

Just deleting the bisignCache.nson file in the appdata/dayz launcher folder seems to resolve the issue.

Before deleting that file, I (and several other people) was experiencing extremely slow population of the community and official server browser tabs. The lists were only populating at about 4 servers per second. After closing the launcher, deleting that one file, and relaunching, it immediately increased to 40-60 severs per second, occasionally increasing even further at times.

This fix has worked in the past for this issue when it has popped up in the past (I found a forum post suggesting this fix from perhaps 2-3 years ago?), and if I remember correctly, it tended to happen right after the launcher app had a significant update, but would occasionally happen occasionally at random times as well.

After today's hotfix @Chambersenator fix above no longer works. I've tested multiple times now, even fully removing the appdata dayz folder.

It took 19 minutes to LOAD all the servers!

I am currently hoping validating my files will fix this, but this is a critical issue affecting all users

Nate_LapT changed Reproducibility from Random to Always.

Validating files does not improve anything.

So far the fix appears to be, to purge all mods.

I unsubscribed to all my mods and now it works. took 3 mins to load 9000 servers.

This should not be needed by the end user.

Hello everyone.
We have made updates to the launcher for the 1.22 update, which will improve the loading times.
