random crashes / maybe a gpu-driver issue
Closed, ResolvedPublic


since the update to 0.44.123800 i get random crashes. it happens out of nowhere no matter if i do something or not. while walking, running, standing, using things, dont do anything.. it's not possible to reproduce or cause intentionally.

first dayz freezes (but only on my screen), than the windows desktop appears, but it seems that dayz is still running transparent ontop of it. i cant click anywhere. need to press alt+tab to get to the desktop, start the taskmanager end kill dayz. my friends report that i still move ingame while pressing the keys or using the mouse. so it seems to be something video related.

i am using a GeForce GTX 460, driver version is 335.23

i'll try swapping back to a previous driver or using the beta drivers from nvidia.
