Game crash to desktop on experimental and stable servers
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Game crashes to desktop within 10 minutes of joining either the stable or experimental servers. Before the crash to desktop I do not have a performance drop. When the game crashes to the desktop it still runs, however I can not select it to bring up any game images. I can only hear the wildlife and others around me. {F30304} {F30305} {F30306} {F30307}

So, I reduced the memory used to 512 in the video settings. I was able to play for an hour. I then increased the video settings back to 1024. Almost instantly the game crashed. I run every other game I play on high settings. This has not always happened as well. Up until the previous patch where the crash to desktop memory leak was introduced it was working fine. I am not sure if this is associated with the memory leak.

Thank you for the feedback. We are aware of this issue and are currently looking into it.

Please keep testing the game and let us know if the issue is still present.

I receive the same AppHang and subsequent crash of Dayz on a regular basis. Added my crash files and dxdiag

After looking into this crash on me more, it has to do with my GPU settings. I do not overclock the GPU, however when I clock the memory clock down the crash does not present. I do not feel that this really has to do with my GPU as this only occurs with DayZ.

This also occurs on the most recent experimental patch.

Still occurring.
