To solve your problem we need files from this folder: "C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\DayZ\"

Can you pack the files in winrar and upload it somewhere please?
When the *.rar will be smaller than 2.097k, you can attach it here. Thank you.

When reporting please refer to "How to guide"

I had a crash last night and it may be related to this but I'm not sure. Quick question for fusionross, is it every time you click outside the screen (go to the second monitor) or just sometimes? I go between monitors quite a bit but I had a crash last night and don't know if it was related to going to the second monitor. Going to test it out and now and I'll provide any relevant information if it comes up.

Its everytime I click on my second monitor or Alt+tab. The game either crashes completely or just locks up.

Kk thanks it sounds so similar but I feel like I'm able to go back and forth between monitors most of the time. Will report back!

EDIT: I was unable to reproduce it, unfortunately.

to fusionross: Are you sure you have uploaded files from this folder: "C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\DayZ\"? There should be RPT, BIDMP and MDMP file. We need only those three.

DayZ creates his own dumps.
There aren't any files at this link [^]

Ok i dont know how to use that site so i change uploading site.

This issue was processed by our team and is being looked into. We thank you for your feedback.

Please keep the issue monitored to see when it is fixed.

This also seems to happen mostly in the main menu. If I change video settings where the screen goes black then it will never come back and crashes the game.

Hello fusionross,

can you please try reproducing the crash on the latest experimental version of the game? We have done some adjustments based on your crash report.

Thank you.
