  1. I just recently got back into DayZ, as I played it a long time ago and felt like playing again. But whenever I join a server, I'm frozen in place, I can hit and look around but I cant go to the menu, access my inventory, or anything! I just have to alt tab and shut down the game via task manager. I have restarted my game, uninstalled and reinstalled, and restarted my PC. I was told about getting a character reset or something but if anyone can from the DayZ staff team could reset my character or fix my problem, I would be very happy.
  2. BSOD When Starting DayZ

    Hello! Everyday when I start up my computer and then proceed to start DayZ my PC immediately crashes to a blue screen which reads "System thread exception not handled". After my PC restarts and when I launch DayZ again it plays fine without any issues for the rest of the day and starts up normally. No other game on my PC does this! Only DayZ and ARMA III have done this to me for the past couple of weeks. I've done everything and read everything I could find on forums. I've cleaned up my registry and hard drive with CCleaner, performed CHKDSK in the cmd prompt, Defragged my hard drive, updated my GPU drivers to new ones, deleted the .cfg file in the DayZ files, removed all launch options in Steam, verified cache in Steam, and even updated every bit of software on my computer that I use consistently and deleted ones I no longer use. I have even scanned for malware with Malwarybytes and scanned for viruses with Avast and nothing has shown up with either. The only things I haven't tried yet is rolling back and reinstalling my GPU drivers (mainly because I don't know how to and my scared I'll mess up something lol) and reinstalling the game, which I will do when I get around to it. Please help me, it will be highly appreciated Thank you!

    Hello! I have a problem with the game lock on my Steam account. I got a game lock for a year. Since that time, more than a year has passed, but I still can not access the game.I did nothing serious, do not cheat. Please help.

Name: BigBoyBearJ
  9. Now I dont want this to come off as needlessly aggressive, or overly sentimental so I will try and be as balanced as i can. I understand the Devs are busy, and that this may not factor in at all, and maybe it shouldn't as most story's of sadness can't be helped by one company. For those of you that dont know who Wobo is, hes a guy who for pretty much half of the early access of DayZ (which is now like 2.5 years) has been making videos. And more than anything the reason why this is relevant to the devs, hes been making videos that pretty much no one could be bothered trying to figure out, or explain to us. Its because of Wobo we the community learned about the Hidden Bone Stat that causes instant death. Its because of Wobo we learned the mechanics and specifics of how damage works when received to our player or their items. Both HUUUUUUUUUUUGE aspects of the game that have been previously hidden or unexplored. And many more things regarding all aspects of the games mechanics. Now you can argue that, the reasons why the Devs didn't broadcast this stuff to the community was either for the fun sense of discovery for us to figure out, or to keep us in the dark on potential mechanics that could be viewed as broken or could maybe be abused. Who knows, but i would suggest that on any other game with any other development team, this would be information that would be broadcast to the community and explained in detail by the devs themselves for the sake of transparency, or just for suggestions and feedback. Anyway, Wobo has done us the community a service, requiring hours of testing and fact gathering (DayZ doesn't reset easily, all tests are done by running fresh spawns to a location and repeating), and he's done the devs a huge service by shining light on a bunch of their mechanics that needed reworking or changing (yes they probably were behind the scenes anyway). His mum has become sick and now he is going to be her soul carer, meaning no internet and PC because they are luxuries he and she cant afford anymore. As stated in this heart breaking video. It would be appreciated by me, and the community if something could be done about this. I feel Wobo has been an admirable member of the community, in both content and attitude, and has serviced the development of DayZ positively more than most. If the devs could take note of this, or perhaps Bohemia as a whole, and either fund him keeping his PC, or fund him being able to have the internet. Or perhaps bring him on as an outside tester of the game, to allow him to test builds and its mechanics while being able to care for his mother at home? Or maybe even just funding his internet costs for the further extent of Beta? I don't know the practical costs of such a thing, but i would imagine its a relative pittance to a large company like Bohemia, and clearly funding isn't a problem for DayZ until it is completed. haha Anyway, in summary. Do what you can, if you read this and you are a Dev, acknowledge and help in anyway possible, please. And if you are a DayZ player, please do the same. By either joining the stream as stated in the video, or donating wherever or whatever you can. To this lovely guy who's been dealt a shit hand, and we all love our mommas! Sorry if this is melodramatic or demanding, but this is when the internet can shine and really do something nice for someone who deserves it. And I never write posts like this. Thanks and Peace!
  10. Is it worth buying Dayz standalone yet or should i wait for it to mature so it's less buggy and more playable??.

  18. Hi guys & girls, My public server, METANIX.net | #1 Friendly Survival is not working for me. I can see from the admin console players are connecting constantly after the update however for me, I get a message stating "bad version, rejected connection". Why is it other people can log in but not me?
  19. So I have been getting really bad freezes almost half a year now. I have been trying to monitor my temperatures of my components but they seem quite normal. Freezes last long and makes Dayz unplayable in anywhere but forests and plain fields. I have 60-140 fps all the time but those freeze spikes just come out of nowhere. My computer is 4 ½ years old now and I'm thinking that there is some problem in my hard drive.. I hope we can fix this problem and I'm here to inform you about everything you ask me. I wouldn't really want to invest in new parts but if it's the only option I will have to do it. My specs (Asus CM6870-US-3AD prebuilt): -Processor: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4GHz (64bit Quad-Core) -Memory: 16GB DDR3 1600 -Storage: 540GB and 372GB HDD -PSU (changed): SilentiumPC Vero L1 650W (80Plus) -GPU (changed): MSI GTX 960 GAMING 2G -Motherboard: ASUS H77
  20. Hello, my name is Chris and I'm looking for someone that can take me "under their wing" and teach me the ways of .61 I've played this game for about 20 hours in total so obviously I'm extremely new. I have so little hours because I have a hard time finding other players with the same intentions as me. My ideal partner would be a lot more experienced than me, that can teach me the ropes and help keep me alive in the new harsh DayZ environment. I just don't have fun playing by myself as I continuously die from animals, players, or food/temp... I bought this game to have something to dedicate my time to but so far I haven't gotten my money's worth in my opinion. Please add me on Discord at Outlye#6608 // Thanks and I hope to meet some new, interesting people!
  21. With Steam being down the new server browser doesn't display any servers. Is that really related to steam or is it a problem on my side?
