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.

In rare cases when this happens to me I join another server and can join the one I want and it works.
But recently I tried the method and didnt work on the last occasion, could not join until server did regular restart schedule.

Hello, it only occurs when there are multiple dead zombies lying in the entrance of police station, all the remaining alive zombies glitch into the basement or "fly" over dead bodies.

huckjam added a comment to T124318: Daytime brightness is out of control.

You know the more I'm messing with this the more I'm convinced it has something to do with Nvidia drivers on Optimus tech or the way the game is interacting with them. I'm playing on Nvidia Optimus idk if you remember our dialog about the 64 bit client not switching to nvivida display from Intel HD by default from like 2 weeks ago but that was me that helped with that. Anyway the reason I'm leaning this way is becuase during trying to fix this shadow play issue I've watched so many videos about how to alt tab out and back in and that will make shadow play start working properly again but all that does for me is make my gamma slider work I still can't record it don't matter if I'm in window mode with desktop still showing borderless window it is still dark. I've done it all and no matter it's still pitch black. Now the big thing that makes me feel this way is that when I take a screen shot with steam it takes the photo regardless of how my gamma is set if it's turned to high it will still look as if it's on default settings but that's not what I'm seeing on my screen if I take a screenshot with shadow play it's pitch black but if I take a windows screenshot it sees exactly how it looks on my screen with the gamma I think something between these states is messing up. It seems as if some of the parts of the scene are being affected by the gamma adjustment where as others aren't. Maybe that's why even with gamma cranked and the whites are so blindingly bright I still see the her effects with the low gamma. Idk just an idea.

huckjam added a comment to T124318: Daytime brightness is out of control.

Yeah it started right after .60 or .61 did the change to correct the issue with being able to see fire and torches through buildings. You remember you used to not be able to.see right past the lighted area of a campfire thats whats happening to me during daylight and its right about the time the campfire fixed I would say I noticed this. I really wish I could find the words to describe what is happening it's really bright and really dark at the same time. To see I to woods I have to go into the bushes to make my screen completely black then when I look away it goes really dark and fades to light then im able see into the woods this weekend I will try to setup something to record my screen. I've tried 3 different displays since yesterday and reinstalled game and windows and replaced game config files I've tried it all now. I don't know what happened but no other game does this they all look the same as they always did but dayz the only one i play constantly. I have talked to quite a few people who have the same effects I'm dealing with and most have either given up or switch servers at full noon. If I play at night or dawn and dust everything is beautiful. Is there anyway to disable hdr it's just too aggressive.

Hello osi and thank you for the report.
Does the issue with the zombies glitching occur also when there is only one zombie alive running through the door/corridor, or does it only occur when there are multiple alive zombies coming through the door/corridor?

Geez

Thank you kopo79.
The issue has been scheduled for a fix. However, we will require some information which could help us in resolving the issue:
Were you alone when grilling the chicken or were there other players with you as well? And if it is not a problem, can you upload a screenshot of your video settings?

Thank you DesertRat.
Are you running any other programs besides Steam while running DayZ? Are you using some kind of specific setting that you had on the previous computer as well (such as tweaks in the config files, startup parameters and similar)? Do you experience this issue on both 32bit and 64bit executables? Can you try turning everything off (including your anti virus software), leaving only steam running, try to run dayz and then let us know here if that had any effect on the issue?
Regards,
Geez

Thank you osi.
We will analyse the crash logs and will return back to you once we know more. As for the hacking, the video you have posted is an outdated video (pre new ui) with a misleading title in order to lure people to install virus infected third party software. We are working with the BattlEye team on resolving all the hack related issues that are in the game, however some of the fixes depend on systems which are not in place yet and will be added in the future.

Geez
