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.

KAMaToZzzNiK added a comment to T124922: Bought game. Installed. Cannot connect to any server. Kicked to main menu with "missing string st_mp_steam_auth_failed" error.

Hello KAMaToZzzNiK.
It appears that this is an issue with Steam, however, there should be an extra message in brackets behind the missing string st_mp_steam_auth_failed error (example : missing string st_mp_steam_auth_failed (*reason for the appearance of the error*)). Either way, we suggest to make sure that your Steam is not logged on another computer or that you are not sharing the game through http://store.steampowered.com/promotion/familysharing feature. We also suggest checking your firewall settings to be sure DayZ is not blocked in there.
If you are not sharing the game, are not logged in Steam on another computer and your firewall is not blocking DayZ, try to reinstall Steam. In case the issue persists even upon doing so, please let us know here.
Regards,
Geez

Hello IIAJEARLEYII and thank you for the report.
Would it be possible for you to record a video of the zombies running through the door? As we have confirmed a similar issue internally, which was related to the server performance. As for the second issue you mention, in case it occurs again in the future can you let us know here and post the server IP+ your Steam profile link?

DesertRat added a comment to T124415: Spinning Truck Trap.

Hi, still having trouble with trucks. The one tonight would not steer after using it 10 minutes. My FPS was 125 but truck was driving all over the place, I could only control speed to a certain point - the only way I could get truck to stop jiggling was to get out. At one time, the truck held me prisoner, it wouldn't let me walk away.

hobart added a comment to T100964: The sound of the wind.

This is still here, go in game and and hit esc then click config/sounds and move the effects slider all the way to the left, all sounds go away EXCEPT wind & other ambient sounds such as birds etc. all of which stay at the same loudest volume possible. Please fix it's truly unbearable, and please don't try to tell me I can disable the ambient sounds this is not a fix for shoddy coding...

Hello Mad__Max.
Could you still send us the profile link and the server IP so we can take a look at the character to check what did possibly kill it? As eating a can of spaghetti should not kill your character.
