I'd rather see Livonia than Deer Isle. Deer Isle was dead last time. It didn't get above 20 or so players today, on a weekend.
There was nothing wrong with the map itself, save for the fact Bohemia used it to milk more money from their playerbase.
The fact Livonia was dead was because the community made the decision to swap back to Chernarus because people complained about the Soup Kitchen on Livonia. Enough groups made the decision to boycott Livonia, that it ended up dying.
At the end of the day, Deer Isle won't draw more players. I think the writing is on the wall, for now at least.
I was a naive young lad trying to follow different streamers I liked in 2014. I used to try to play on the same server as Mr Moon, GassyMexican, Kiwo, etc.
Went from FalconRP, to Flash Mob RP, to here and I've remained here due to the friends I've made in the long time that I've been here.
I've tried the sfc /scannow thing but it didn't help. I'm just done trying at this point, I've spent too much time trying to figure it out. I'm going to wait and see if a windows update in the future will help. Thanks again.
I hope you know how to take care of a child, because you just solved my problem. Here is my firstborn son, please take good care of him.
For anybody else in the future that might have this issue, I followed Mason's advice and the steps listed on this website. I will also edit the original post with the steps needed to fix the problem.
Once again, thank you @Mason and to everyone else that gave me advice. I absolutely appreciate it.
Yes, I believe there was a windows 10 update that I installed between a few days ago and the time I last played. Firewall is up, and when I uninstalled DayZ, I did it through steam. I also uninstalled it through the control panel but still the same result. I believe the mods are in the same folder as the dayz_x64.exe, and they are deleted as well when I delete the DayZ folders.
I've posted a bug report on the dayz feedback tracker, so hopefully that will help. What's really strange is that this even happens on a different PC that I own. So I don't believe it's a hardware issue, but I'm still not sure what I can do.
My nvidia driver was up to date and installed on the 9th, so I downloaded the previous version on nvidia's website and installed that driver, but it didn't fix the issue. When I crash, the game just freezes for a few seconds before crashing to desktop. Here is a video that shows exactly what happens:
My specs are as follows:
My CPU is an i7. I saw that reddit thread and followed the steps last night but the error remained. Unfortunately, public servers with no mods enabled still crashes the game with the same error. I'm contemplating leaving a post on the dayz feedback tracker, but it seems like the bohemia devs might not be too great at handling the issues there. I looked at a bunch of threads on the feedback tracker with the same issue I had and it seemed like most of them weren't solved.
The last time I played for a while was on the 16th of this month. I didn't play again until the 25th and I believe that's when my issue started.
I agree, seems like the mindset around reports in some parts of the community is similar to the US prison system; it's not about teaching or rehabbing people or keeping people honest, it's simply about punishment, which is a toxic mindset in itself. It's about punishing the "wicked", even if their definition of the word is more strict compared to the general definition of "wicked" that most people seem to agree with.
If someone is KOSing or trolling, then yeah report them. That's a legitimately asshole thing to do and should be reported. But I don't like the amount of reports that get put up over tiny things that happen in game because people are mad or feel wronged, or simply because they have the opportunity to get someone into shit.
I run steam as admin, so if I'm not mistaken, it's automatically run as admin. Either way, I went to the directory and launched the executable as admin and the issue remained
This could be an issue with my PC as well, but I'm not sure how I would go about finding out what exactly is wrong if that is the case.
Edit as of 7/31: Issue was fixed for ~10 minutes before providing the same crash and error message when I tried playing later the same day. I'm all out of ideas and am frustrated as hell.
This issue has been resolved. In order to stop this error from crashing your game, you need to delete the files in the steam cloud. I followed the steps from this website: https://appuals.com/how-to-delete-steam-cloud-saves/
Over the past week of trying to play DayZ, I consistently get this error code after ~30 seconds of being in a server.
I get this error on both DayZRP AND vanilla public servers, whether I'm running, performing an action, or just sitting in place. No matter what, it kicks me after ~30 seconds-1 minute and gives this code.
I've attempted to fix this error by doing the following:
-Completely uninstalling DayZ and reinstalling it
-Verifying game cache
-Deleting the DayZ folder in Documents as well as the folder in steamapps\common\DayZ
-Googling the error code for help, but finding nothing that has helped yet
-Looking at the DayZ feedback tracker for solutions, but finding none that have worked yet
-Deleting the cloud saves
I will provide my firstborn son as compensation for whoever can help me.
I personally see this as a non-issue, and am against making most changes to the server that don't make massive improvements or provide a lot of positives. Like I said, this isn't a big deal in my eyes and I don't think it warrants a change. It's still a game at the end of the day, we don't need to try to be as realistic as possible; that just defeats the purpose of playing the game.
