OVERLAY (FRAPS, DXTORY etc.) causes DayZ to crash sometimes. Battleeye is the Problem!
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The game sometimes crashes when using an overlay like the one from fraps or dxtory. Everytime the Server message displays player has been kicked because of Battleeye.
This needs to be resolved. I know a lot of cheats work with overlay but this still needs a fix.
Also this can result in charakter reset which is majorly annoying!

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 a dxdiag report and files from this folder: "C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\DayZ\" after the crash.

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.

Fraps runs all the time when I play DayZ, and I've never been kicked by BattleEye. (FPS overlay is active)

I've also never experienced this. The last few days I've been running fraps the whole time (overlay active) and I've had no issues. I've also recorded for brief periods of time, it seemed to make no difference.

Okay, the problem seems to be the same as everybody else is having with the city boundries that makes the game freeze. I did how ever notice that it happened more frequently with the overlay enabled.
