DayZ minimising to start bar after run game for the first time.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Opening DayZ for the first time I turn computer on causes minimising game to start bar and I have to terminate it with ctrl + alt + del. The task manager says Dayz doesn't respond.

I didn't have this issue before I stared using SSD with game installed on. {F30338} {F30339} {F30340}

It also happens on experimental. What logs should I upload here?


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

If so, please send us apart from dxdiag report, files from this folder: "C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\DayZ\"

If the *.rar is smaller than 5.000KB, you can attach it here.
In case it's larger than that, please try uploading it to a file sharing website and link it here.

Thank you.

I have uploaded an archive in *.rar as you requested.

I can also add it happens to me with latest stable and experimental branch. I am even able to upload a video showing this issue if it helps.

I have same problems since last experimental update. Game hooks on startup, on black screen or logo. When I alt-tab and get back to game it unhooks.

After I enter the server and alt-tab to desktop I can't get back into the game. Sceen turns black then immediately desktop shows back. Tried few times, happens everytime. I have also updated files you have asked aavil for.


Thank you for the feedback and the files. 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.

It still happens.

Happens to me all the time now. It didn't happen before the latest patch?

I think the issue has gone (one I said in report), but sometimes game crash while joining servers or even in game.
