Game launches as background process then closes
Need More Info, WishlistPublic


When I launch the game via steam, it goes as a background process, then closes after 10 seconds. I know it's not a settings issue, I've deleted my dayz.cfg multiple times. I've reinstalled the game. If I launch the game via the .exe in the games directory, it says "unable to locate an instance of steam" even though I've got it running.


Legacy ID
Game Crash
Steps To Reproduce

Launch the game.

Additional Information

It was working previously, I made no changes to my computer - nothing and the game just stopped working.

Can't tell you the version because the game doesn't launch to let me see.

This is the 3rd time I've posted it. I really hope this gets fixed, or I can find out why it's happening. It's the biggest pain in the ass.
