Extreme desync for minutes, then the game crashes
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I log in, get absolutely NO sync, then, waiting for the 100000 desync to disappear, my game crashes.
I'm able to run around ingame, for about 10 minutes, while everyone can see me (including my interactions with the world, eg. opening a door) but i receive no updates at all, eg. unable to see other players, doors won't open for me, inventory can't be manipulated.
99% of the time, the game will crash ("DayZ.exe has stopped working"), only very rarely the desync will disappear (after a couple of minutes, mind you), only to appear again after 30 seconds and then the game will crash.
This still happesn, even after the latest GPU bug related hotfix ("flickering textures", memory leak and FPS drop), so i don't think it is related to that.


Legacy ID
Game Crash
Steps To Reproduce

I log in, get no sync (or get sync briefly, then 100000 desync).
I wait for the desync to disappear but after roughly 5 to 10 minutes, the game crashes ("DayZ.exe stopped working").

Additional Information

Since my buddies don't have this problem, i suspect my network provider is at fault for giving me erratic bandwidth and packet loss (i noticed an overall reduced network performance in the evening hours).
But that still doesn't explain the absolute broken downstream (upstream seems to work, as all of my actions are send to the server just fine). Other applications, just as Teamspeak or Skype works just fine.
And if, for whatever reason, my connection to a server is broken, the game should not crash but giv me a "session lost" kick or something.
I tried different servers too, with the same results.

Since it has been more than a month and you still did not provide us with the files, I am closing this issue.

Next time, please attach the files required :)
