Mysterious server crash

Recommended Posts

A few hours ago, the server I was on just crashed. According to DayZspy, I'm still on it, still playing, but the "time connected" is not ticking any longer.

Several months before another server crashed beneath my feet already - just exactly like the one just now.  That server -never recovered-  from the crash, as far as I could see. It disappeared completely,  along with my old stashes. Which I then rebuilt. On the current one. Only to have it crashing, too, in seemingly the exact same way. And now I really want to know what's actually happening here.


The server I'm talking about is called "DayZ Server Daennys Vikings", and I have no idea who it belongs to. Me and friends have several stashes on it, and at the time of the crash, I was sorting through the inventory of a barrel and a tent. Just as several months before, when this happened on a different server. Nothing out of the ordinary or unusual. Move a cooking pot here, change of clothes, get a different gun for the next day, and what have you.


As I was the only person connected at both times, the only clue I have is that I might have triggered it, but no idea what made it happen. I'd prefer that server to actually come back, when the Wednesmay maintenance time is up, but I fear it's not going to return, if things do go exactly like last time.


Anyone have any idea what this is?


PS: This time the server actually recovered and went back up. But I'm leaving this here because I'm still concerned.

Maybe the end of rent-time ?

Dayz servers are not a gift...no pay, no server, and you are the last surviver from this server.

Community-side server are never garanted. (Public/Private). Only the offizials Servers theres  hosted by BI.

      Server crashes when attempting to swamp item in hot bar while holding a stick with chicken attached
      To reproduce.
      1. Attach raw chicken to stick
      2. select an item on hot bar
      Boot to main menu with no dialog box, server no longer in server list
      I've already reported on the game crash bug when attempting to remove cooked chicken from a stick into inventory. I've repeated this an it also happens with raw chicken (move chicken to stick and then move immediately back into inventory)
      I tried to work around this by standing after cooking the chicken and moving the stick to ground. Stick cannot be removed from hands to either back, or to the ground. I attempted to swap with item on hot bar which resulted in an immediate boot from server and the server no longer being listed in server list.

      Don;t know if this is the right place to put this, but i could not find a actual place to discuss experimental problems besides reddit.
      about an hour ago, the server Southwest 01 went down, it was restarting. But it never came back online, I had a car and everything so I don't really want to switch if I don't have too.
      Southwest 02 is still up but I noticed there was a new server called Southeast 01, maybe it was switched?
      I'm sorry if this is the incorrect place to put this, if it is tell me and ill remove it.
      If anyone can check this out and try to get it back up it would be much appreciated, thanks! :)

      Now we're getting somewhere, thanks.  You don't need a reason, that's fine.

      I'll repost this here, since they want to delete what I consider legitimate reporting and questioning - instead of addressing it, I guess they can re-delete it here.
      Then we'll have traction.  I want to hear from other people renting servers, or playing on them, that's actually paying attention to - and cares about - the memory leaks and crash cycles.
