Description

DayZ is a gritty, authentic, open-world survival horror hybrid-MMO game, in which players follow a single goal: to survive in the harsh post-apocalyptic landscape as long as they can. Players can live through powerful events and emotions arising from the ever-evolving emergent gameplay.

For client crashes, please have a look at the following:

Create a new issue and clearly label it as a crash in the title. For example:

"Game Crash - Dropping a protector case crashes the game"

Next, provide insight into how you got your game to crash. Include as much information about what you were doing around the time the game crashed. Every little detail can help us fix the problem. Remember to mention whether this happens on the stable or experimental branch of the game.

GOOD:
"The game crashed when I dropped a protector case on the ground while playing on an experimental server. I had the protector case in my backpack and drag and dropped it into the vicinity window. The case contained a canteen and a pack of rice. I have tried this several times and it happens every time"

BAD:
"Game crashed when I dropped a protector case"

Include steps to reproduce if you think that they are necessary and aren't obvious enough from the description. Always describe reproduction step by step.

  1. Open inventory
  2. Place the protector case in your backpack
  3. Drag and drop it into the vicinity tab
  4. Game Crashes

Don't forget to include the game's version (can be found in the main menu).

Now for the most important part of all.

We need you to upload a few files from your computer. Specifically, the crash dumps that are generated with every crash and the dxdiag report from your computer.

Getting your DxDiag file:

  1. Open the Start menu
  2. Write "dxdiag"
  3. Press enter
  4. A window will open
  5. Click "Save all information"

You will get a text file - that's what we need

Getting your crash dumps:

Go to this file location: "C:\Users<Name>\AppData\Local"
There you should see a DayZ folder.
Create a .zip or .rar file of that folder.

Then take the .zip/.rar and the DxDiag file and upload them to the Feedback Tracker issue. You can do so by dragging/dropping your files into the Description text field for example. Use the "New DayZ Private Bug Report" form when sending us crash logs as they may contain personal data from your computer.

Hopefully I will not have any problem with Experimental then. Can you tell me what is the problem on my game? Why it's shutting my computer down ? And when next staable update will come? And when can I try to play on experimental servers?

Hello mikaji.
The experimental version is usually a newer version than the stable version is. This means that if the issue does not occur on the experimental version, it is highly possible it is not going to occur on the next stable update which will contain the updates that were on the experimental branch previously.

I played 11 minutes on experimental Dayz in Experimental server. After 11 minutes, it says me "you are not getting message for a 8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 seconds" then it disconnected and I can't see any experimental servers on the list now.

Geez,
Along with the issue of slow sluggish movement I have discovered a more annoying issue. I don't know if anyone else is experiencing this or not. With my head straight and unmoving every 2 seconds approx. my screen jerks up and then down approx 1 to 2 inches. It is constant with me. This is with my default TrackIR setting I have used in all my games. It only occurs with TrackIR. If I turn off TrackIR before game I do not have this issue with Alt freelook.

Hello mikaji.
The bad version server rejected connection error has occurred possibly due to you trying to connect to a server that is running stable version (currently the server browser filter is broken and does show all servers, regardless of the version). Can you try finding a server with "Experimental" in its name and connect to it?

Geez closed T125864: DayZ crashes to desktop on joining first server of startup. as "Resolved".

Hello northofnowhere2.
Glad this has helped. It is actually not a bug, When the game launches through steam, it launches the game and the battleye client. By creating a direct executable it did launch the client but did not launch the be client. When the server checked for battleye the moment you have connected, it did not find it running and force restarted your game with the battleye client running. If you would like to launch the game from a desktop shortcut, you can use the dayz_be.exe to create the shortcut and then add "-exe DayZ_x64.exe" parameter to the shortcut (or just -exe DayZ_x64.exe, depending on which executable you want to launch).
Regards,
Geez

I tried what you say now. Experimental version is not connecting any server and it gives "bad version server rejected connection" error. I couln't play there.
I played with new downloaded Dayz which is installed SSD Disc without anyAntivirus program. Actually I have only Windows Defender but I turned off everything on there. My computer shut down in 3 minutes again. Here you can find new error files (DayZERROR.rar) ; I think I can't play Dayz :( It's still not rendering character on main menu. But I didn't experience any memmory error in 10 minutes.

IF I use my 64 bit shortcut on the desktop, or a 32 bit shortcut I copied, or click on the actual application files located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\DayZ it does this crash, but you are correct, if launched in 32 or 64 bit mode directly from Steam it does not crash. Thank you for the workaround btw, but still a weird bug.

Hey
Do you know how long it will be before it returns?
I have a messed up control config, where rmb is set to move forward. (I've Used this since counter strike beta so can't change it)
But without fast forward I can no longer look at my inventory and run at the same time 😞

Hello mikaji and thank you for the report.
Have you tried to change your video settings to see if it has any effect on the crashes? Are you using any launch parameters to start the game? Does the issue occur on both 32bit and 64bit executables? Are you experiencing this issue on both experimental and stable versions of the game? Can you try to delete the contents of your C:\Users\*username*\Documents\DayZ folder, turn off every single program running on your computer (even your antivirus and similar) and let us know if that had any effect on the issue? Also, if we understand correctly you are also experiencing this issue in miscreated?

Yes, it was me. Luckly the third guy didn't perform any action except watching the scene. I'm posting the sequence of actions in order to clear up any doubt , but feel free to scrap it out if it is too confusing:

Flattermann added a comment to T124990: TrackIR not currently working in 0.62.

For me it 'works' on both clients after deleting the cfg files (thanks Racket).

I used the quotation marks because I really dislike the current implementation.

It is lagging behind my actual wanted view position. It feels very sluggish at the moment, and is quite nauseating.

It was not like this in any patch before, and I tried multiple configurations, both in 32 and 64 bit, updated TIR software and games list, tweaked the settings that control this (I didn't have to do any changes to these values for two years) like speed and smoothness (in TIR software) but nothing helped. I use TIR 5 with the latest version 5.2.4 iirc.

It almost feels like the game limits the maximum speed the in-game head can perform when being controlled by trackIR, because I can rotate my ingame head just fine and very fast with the mouse in free look. When using TrackIR and turning the head fast, the avatar vision pans to its end angle, but noticeably slower than the input. This freaks my brain out.

xsannz added a comment to T124990: TrackIR not currently working in 0.62.

Yes working in both clients on experimental , but it is unusable and feels very sluggish and like moving my head in treacle, this need to be reverted back to the feel of 0.60 0.61 current form is not a fix if anything its worse than not having it.

I watched the task manager while it happened, and there was only one DayZ.exe at a time, but there were two distinct BattlEye Launcher (32 bit)'s listed for about two seconds. The BE License is set to 1. Files requested uploaded. It happened just now if that helps read the files and logs.
