Game Crashes after 5-10 minutes of gameplay.
Acknowledged, WishlistPublic


Just as summary indicates: after 5-10 minutes of gameplay, it crashes. I've even opted into the DayZ experimental to see if it changes anything: it doesn't.

I have noticed that it seems to happen when buildings are visible. One time I spawned way out in the wilderness and 30 minutes later when I finally found buildings, it crashed. Prior to the 44.123800 update, this never happened - I was able to play for hours on end with no issues. then 44.123800 came along and I haven't been able to play for more than 5 minutes. I fully understand the game is in Alpha, but I can't even play it to find bugs! I want my money back and just wait until DayZ is released full.


Legacy ID
Game Crash
Steps To Reproduce

Start game. Join server (any). Cry myself to sleep again.

Additional Information

I've tried re-installing DayZ. I put all my graphics settings on the lowest settings, I've verified my game cache - I don't know what else to do.

EDIT: Tried playing with today's update 44.123802. Same issue, only this time it doesn't even seem to wait until I see buildings, it simply crashes after 5-10 minutes every time. :(
