Hey everyone, I've been at this issue for a few days now- I have a private home server and it was running completely fine for over a month, running the latest version of Epoch. I decided to give Windows 10 a shot for a week, however it did not play well with MySQL or OA for that matter. I reverted back to Windows 7, fresh install. My server PC is running Windows 7 once again, and so is my desktop- and I installed the server the same way I did before and it seems to launch alright-- HOWEVER-- once I join from the desktop, I get a strange multiplayer menu: Also, once I join I get stuck on this screen.. I find it so weird that it does this because I have had no problems with this in the past.. Steam ports are set accordingly, ports forwarded, it's definitely not a hardware issue.. If anyone could help, that'd be great.
So I have been scouring the internet and this forum for some time now for a solution to this problem. It seems to be, more common than it first appears. I, like many sad souls, are having the issue of getting locked at the Dayz Epoch screen, while I can hear my character move when pressing keys. Can't shoot mind you, but can hear foot steps. This problem seems random. I have a feeling it is due to some sort of mission file corruption. I am unsure. I have reinstalled the game from the ground up, reinstalled the mods. Rebuild my server and correlating database twice now. My friend can connect at any time, but for some reason, I get stuck. I have found sometimes reinstalling the server files and restarting helps, but after a single log in and exiting of the program, it no longer works. I was reading the Piggd (sorry if I misspelled that) had a working solution that required you to edit a specifc file. However, it never stipulates which PBO file contains this file that needs to be edited. Any information or ideas would be greatly helpful on this topic, as I am about to take a baseball bat to my computer :p
I was hoping maybe vbawol will us out. I just got my own server, and we have chosen EPOCH as the mod we want to play. My computer works fine and the server is running great on Dayz.ST Its my first server and I am not very experienced in Dayz. Two of my buddies want to tag along on my server - but the problem is they get exactly the same error. They can join the server fine - and hit "OK". Then the loadscreen progresses but stops EXACTLY at "30" on "Waiting for server to start authentication" -and then the screen goes black and only "Group channel" is visble for a few seconds and then dissapears :-( After some 40-50 seconds the screen shows "Private Matthew Williams (random name) Duration: 0 min. and some weird vertical bar and then the "Disconnect" button. Thats it. They can both "Disconnect" no problem - but we try again - the same thing happens :( Here is what we tried: * uninstalled all components of Arma 2, DayzCommander, Dayz and EPOCH * disabled Dayz expansion in Dayz * defrag, updates drivers * cclean * lowered resolutions I am are running (clientside) Dayz EPOCH 184.108.40.206 (shown in Arma 2) - and DayzCommander claims 220.127.116.11 - but they are running EPOCH 1.0.2 - So I am thinking its a Dayz.ST problem (deprecated version)???? If I update to 1.0.2 I am pretty sure I will get the same problem ? - can ya help a fella out ???
