Steps To Reproduce
  1. Load dayz.exe version 0.43.116251

I have tried removing all launch options for dayz. Also disabled windows xp compatibility mode. Closed all applications I have running before playing.

Crashed a further two times, first was about 5 minutes after I joined a low population server and was standing still. Second was on a full server while playing with a friend.

Uploaded another crash dump with my dxdiag.

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.

Had another crash which was different, not sure if it is the same issue or not. Had exited a server and was idle on the server screen, not sure how long for as I was afk, and when I came back the game had crashed back to desktop.

The crash dump file for this is here:


apologies for the late reply. I'm closing this issue as it seems outdated and the original crash no longer happens. In case you are experiencing any other crashes, please submit a separate issue along with fresh crash dumps.

Thank you!
