Not always, but likely %70 chance to screen become corrupted when restoring the game from alt-tab. Screen corruption continues even if i close the game. Desktop, other application's screens everyting become corrupted. The only solution is restarting the computer. It's very annoying. I don't have this problem with any other pc game.
- Legacy ID
Open the game. Join any server. Alt-tab. Restore the game.
Continue until screen is become corrupted.
I tried to capture the screen with "printscreen" when it becomes corrupted but, everything seems normal in picture. So i didn't upload the printscreen image here.
I'm using 2x Asus HD6970 as a gpu with latest drivers.
Maybe this problem is related with multiple gpu's.
I tried to disable crossfire from Catalyst Control Center. But problem continues.
Can you update to the newest version, try to reproduce this bug again and upload a dxdiag report?
Some screenshots to show what happens might be good - a decent photo of your screen will do as the printscreen function didn't show the corruption.
I'm using the newest version.
I uploaded dxdiag report, and i capture the screen when it corrupts.

Generally screen corrupts much worst that you can't see anything except black and white lines. Only fix is restarting computer.
And i forgot to say that i'm using 120hz monitor.
Note: I have nearly 130 games on my pc and i don't have any problem with any other game. I really like Dayz but this problem really annoys me :(
Edit: Please look at video 3 especially.
Hm I am using also 2x GPU's on SLI, even when the Driver does not really have a SLI Support yet, but I don't have the issue after alt + tab.
Actually this looks like one card is rendering something completely wrong?!
Try when you have this issue to deactivate CrossFireX, I am pretty sure this will help out. When the bug its away restart CrossFire, maybe it will work?
Hi traxformania and sorry to hear about your trouble.
This does not seem to necessarily be related to DayZ, but could be caused by your display - would it be possible to try lowering its refresh rate? While it is not a guaranteed fix, it has helped some people facing similar issues
Please let me know if it helped,
@andy Thanks, changing my monitor's refresh rate to 60hz completely fixed my problem. No more screen corruption. But, it's somewhat frustrating that i must change refresh rate whenever i want play dayz or after play.
It would be great if this is fixed in game. Everyting looks much better to me with 120hz.
