Brown screen when joining server.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


After being disconnected from a server and joining another, sometimes the screen will be a brownish colour which changes as you move the mouse around. The action bar along the bottom is perfectly visible and sounds (such as zombies) can be heard. It seems the player can move in this state as holding W plays the player's footstep sounds.

Closing the game and restarting fixes the issues. (Temporarily)

Please let us know in note section if you are still able to reproduce this issue in latest Development build.

If so, try to update your graphics drivers and Windows to latest version.

If it wont help, please send us dxdiag and files from this folder: "C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\DayZ\"

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

For future reporting please refer to "How to guide"
