Crashing whenever trying to join a server
Each time I try to join a server, everything starts loading and is looking fine, but then on 100% I crash. I can join stronghold servers without problems, but nothing much to do there it seems...

verify game cache

post details about your hardware (cpu, gpu, memory) and os (windows version n if 32/64 bits)

make sure windows, drivers, c/c++ runtime, .net runtime, directx runtime, etc are all updated

good place to start is by checking for errors in

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\The War Z\r3dlog.txt

[OP]Dannibal Aug 18, 2014 @ 4:20am 
Thanks. The errors I can find in that txt log (quite a bunch, so what to do?)

just verify game cache !!!!!!!!!!!!!! that fix everything.
[OP]Dannibal Aug 18, 2014 @ 4:32am 
How do I do that?
[OP]Dannibal Aug 18, 2014 @ 4:39am 
So I right click appmanifest_226700, then I choose what? I don't see anything like verify... Sorry I feel noobish...
[OP]Dannibal Aug 18, 2014 @ 4:48am 
Mmm found it... I was looking on my PC instead of here in Steam :) 3 files failed to verify so they started re-downloading. Guess I verify again after that before trying to play again.
[OP]Dannibal Aug 18, 2014 @ 4:48am 
Thanks for all the help and patience so far!
[OP]Dannibal Aug 18, 2014 @ 4:52am 
Wish me luck, here I go...
[OP]Dannibal Aug 18, 2014 @ 5:04am 
I got on a server now, but when I tried to run faster my screen got black and I crashed again...
[OP]Dannibal Aug 18, 2014 @ 5:24am 
Crashed again after a few seconds...

For some games, changing resolution or switching from full screen to windowed screen helps, is that the case here too?

Requirements seem pretty high as graphic lvl etc doesn't seem superior to any other games I play (or played)...

It's my money in the drain for this one I guess :( Still same problem, the stronghold works fine, other servers I crash before I am on even.

you still have not posted

post details about your hardware (cpu, gpu, memory) and os (windows version n if 32/64 bits)

the "out_data must be initialized before" says your running out of memory

so post those details about your hardward and os
[OP]Dannibal Aug 18, 2014 @ 10:52am 
This what you need to know?

AMD Athlon 64 dual core 5600+ 2,80 GHz
2,00 Gb RAM
32 bits
Direct X 10
CPU 2008 MHz

And yeah, it's kind of old, but I have no trouble with any other games...

sorry but your computer does not meet the minimum requirements to run this game.

the biggest problem being u only have 2gb and the game needs minimum 4gb and really needs windows 64 with 8gb to fit it all in memory. with 4gb u cant fit game, windows, steam, ect in memory and if u have 2gb u cant even fit the minimum so that is why u get ""out_data must be initialized before"

in addition to needing at least 4gb you also need a quadcore cpu (dual core will not be enough) and you also need a gpu that is at least as powerful as "Nvidia GTX 460/ATI Radeon HD 5850", not just dx 10

minimum requirements
System Requirements

OS:Windows Vista/Windows 7 (enhanced for 64-bit OS)
Processor:2.4 GHZ Quad Core or better
Memory:4 GB RAM
Graphics:Nvidia GTX 460/ATI Radeon HD 5850
Hard Drive:3 GB HD space
Sound:Windows Compatible Sound Card
Other Requirements:Broadband Internet connection

the thingis before buying game u need to always look at the minimum hardware requirements and make sure that you have hardware that will run the game before buying.

Jeez, that's crazy, what does the game need that all for...? I sometimes a Steam game together with another online game, internet in 3 screens and Skype video chat all at once and never have any problems... Oh well, I can only hope they spend my money on making the game better for you guys then.
