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.

Hello Vizi.
We have analysed the crash logs and these particular crashes are known by us and they are scheduled for a fix. Also, we suggest you to remove the " -nosplash -noPause -cpuCount=4 -exThreads=8 -malloc=system -maxMem=12288 " parameters permanently, as we do not officially support them and they cause various issues and crashes in the game due to being outdated.

I was able to do this with the three types of Barrack buildings in the South West corner of the NWAF area. I also wanted to add that no door open/close sound effects occurred when opening/closing doors.

Hello thepseud0o.
We have tested taking screenshots with Steam, but unfortunately we could not reproduce the issue you have described. Can you try to turn off all programs running in background with exception of Steam and then try to take the screenshots again? Also, could you provide us with some of these screenshots?

It appears that the server was already down when you were walking under the water, therefore the server did not communicate with the client any more and the swimming animation was not initiated.

Geez changed the status of T123020: Reload Button Drops Ammo in Magazine, 1911 from "New" to "Need More Info".

Hello perki104 and thank you for the report.
By "reload button", do you mean the R key? As the functionality of R key has been changed and it no longer serves as a reload key. The current function of the R key is either to load next round (Bolt action rifles, shotguns and similar) or to empty bullet from the chamber of the weapon. Quick reload of the weapon can be done by placing the required ammo / magazine on your quickbar.

Geez

rgobeli1 added a comment to T122992: Dayz Server Browser always opens with blank search text and no character from last game!.

I created new Dayz file and the character menu is the same. The files were not read only.
The game menu does remember your character as long as you don't end the game client. It shows character0 or character1.
You should be able to rename the character0.
When you leave the browser you can see your character in the Dayz scene.

We have confirmed the issue with the search bar and it has been scheduled for a fix. As for the game not remembering your characters correctly, can you check if the contents of your C:\Users\*username*\Documents\DayZ are not set as "read only"? And if not, can you try removing the contents and let us know if the issue persists?
