can't enter the public test server and says disconnected from server
i can enter the less people server,but when i enter the public test server which has more people server i can't enter

and says "disconnected from server"

Is it because my computer?

My CPU : AMD A8-3850 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 2.90 GHz

RAM:4GB

Graphics Card:GTX 550 Ti

Sorry my english is not well

could be a number of things

but looking quickly at your hardware

and the server is kicking you becuase you are lagging too much

also your gpu does not meet the minimum gpu requirements

the game needs gtx 460 you have a gtx 550 ti

i know what your saying gtx 460 > gtx 550 ti, but its not because of the ti which means value, not normal which means its really slow much slower than a regular one

here take a look at your card (1928 passmark)
http://videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=GeForce+GTX+550+Ti

here take a look at gtx 460 (2666 passmark)
http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=GeForce+GTX+460

so your video card is a good bit slower than the minimum required video card.

also 4gb is not enough to really run this game and windows and steam and all the other stuff

think about it the game needs about 4gb for itself, then your os has needs of about 1-2gb and then you also have other needs like for steam and other stuff that is loaded and running so give it 1gb for that that comes to 6-7gb which means u really needs 8gb to run this game, and lots of other games as well. so what happens is you swap stuff and end up thrashing.

also your cpu is sort of at the low end and perhaps does not meet the minimum hardware requirements because its amd and amd is generally quite slow regardless of frequency which they pump up to make up for very slow core x86 instructions implementation

i know its 2.9 ghz, buts its an amd and that means its core is really slow at running those instructions... so its about 1/2 the speed of an equivalent intel cpu. sadly an intel dual core could probably beat most amd cpus.

here take a look at your cpu (3532 cpu mark)
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+A8-3850+APU

and here take a look at typical intel quad core with 2.67 ghz (5004 cpu mark)
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i7+920+%40+2.67GHz&id=834

but as you can easily see tht old intel cpu beats the amd one pretty bad... even intel 2.67 cpu beat it...

in general
=========================
verify game cache

post details about your 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


if client performance problems causing server to kick you...

run resource monitor or better msi afterburnder + hwinfo to see where bottleneck is

look at this thread on tweaking the game and increasing performance
http://steamcommunity.com/app/226700/discussions/0/846959179199964105/

also make sure box exceeds minimum requirements
http://store.steampowered.com/app/226700/
System Requirements

Minimum:
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
DirectX®:9.0
Hard Drive:3 GB HD space
Sound:Windows Compatible Sound Card
Other Requirements:Broadband Internet connection

also this game needs to be running on a computer that has 64-bit os with 8gb of ram and a very good desktop 4 core cpu + very good desktop gpu with 1gb video ram


=======
if internet lag / internet connection issues

if wireless check signal strength/quality

check if anyone/anything else is using your bandwidth

check your firewall/router logs

check game logs files, pb logs, windows application/system event logs

do tracert to server(s) using pingplotter
http://www.pingplotter.com/

"Manually changing "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The War Z\local.ini""

i can't find local.ini

by default its not there

you need to create it and put what you want in it

also try this

if u have 3/4 gb and if u have have windows 7/8

1. Run CMD as Administrator
2. Type:
bcdedit /set IncreaseUserVA 2560 - If you have 3 GB of RAM
bcdedit /set increaseUserVa 3072 - if you have 4 GB of RAM
etc.
3. Enjoy game without crashes <3

Remember that you must run CMD as Administrator.

that will try to squeeze more ram

but i can tell u it wont really help u

u have to upgrade your hardware if you want to play this game without issue like disconnects especially in california map that is larger

this game needs to be running on a computer that has 64-bit os with 8gb of ram and a very good desktop 4 core cpu + very good desktop gpu with 1gb video ram

i have 2+ yr old amd 1090t / ati 6870 1gb / 16gb / ssd / windows 8.1 64-bit and the game runs great 1920x1200 maxed out and best of all i really dont get disconnects even on california map i dont have problems.

so this game if u cant respond in time the server will kick you like other multiplayer games cause you will be spoiling it for others who wll be seeing you teleport and rubberband all over if they dont kick u

the biggest problem is the amount of memory you have but even if u did get 8gb i still would be worried about your gpu because its so much slower than the minimum required on and then your cpu

perhaps wait for them to do stand alone and in the mean time stick to basic colorado map, which i still think may cause you problem or honestly play some other game that does not have the hardware requirements of this one...

orry for the bad news :(

sadly amd really slow and nvidia likes to play games with ti label and people think they getting real one...

Keep lying about that to people all you want... everyone can see you're just making things up to defend the game. You even post the requirements yourself, then tell people they need well more than that. Makes sense, fanboy.

No matter how many times you spam it to everyone, it won't make it match the actual requirements.

this.. +1 especially after it was advertised as you don't need a very good computer, aaaaad also the game graphics aren't that good either...

your gpu does not meet the minimum hardware requirements to run this game...

here take a look at the minimum required card gtx 460

http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=GeForce+GTX+460

its passmark is 2666

your card gtx 650 although has a much higher number

http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=GeForce+GTX+650

actually only has passmark of 1839

you have value card is the problem having bigger number does not mean faster... you have to look up the specs and see what it can deliver and compare it to minimum hardware requirements as i have done in numerous posts for people. as u can see its very easy for people to do this. but they dont before buying a game... so who fault is that...

and although passmark is just one gpu benchmark it sort of is a quick litmus test to see where two cards eye to eye , rank in line. perhaps in some other test gtx 650 would return a larger value then gtx 460 but in this one the older gtx 460 delivered a good bit more than the newer gtx 650.

that mostly being cause gtx 650 is value card and value cards you cant put next to performance card... that is baiscally the problem people buying cheap gpu and then saying i can beat high end ones u cant... even with higher newer cards. the raw power is not there. they nerf value cards and buff performance cards... mostly by the bus size one is 256 the other 128-bit so it has to play tricks to move data around that really slows things down inspite of the hardware inside...

so basically the connection of the hardware inside gtx 650value card is using 128 bit memory interface

http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-650/specifications

and the older card is using 256 bit memory interface

http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-460/specifications

so as stuff is moved in and out and moving around inside the card it can only move about 1/2 of what the older card can move

older card has memory banwidth of 115.2 GB/s and your card has memory bandwith of 80.0 GB/s but you say that is not 1/2 well the newer card is running a lot faster the clock to hide it. but that is not always case cause that causes it to use more power and produce more heat which means its more likely to get trotted to lower frequency if ti starts to draw too much power and/or produce too much heat and when that happens performance comes down crashing. so it wont be delivering that 80 GB/s in real life in many people computer that dont cool well. if you run hwinfo with msiafterburner your can see your cpu/gpu being trottled for number of reasons from it now being utilized enough to require it to be running at maximum frequrence to it running too hot to be runnin gat maximum frequirence or it ussing to much transistors for example modern cpu normally can run faster when using less cores then when running more cores cause of internal core temperatures are elss when running 1-2 cores and more when running 3-4 or more cores. so u see like x ghz at 1-2 and x-% at 3-4 core where X is some value...

so next tome people buy hardware tkae a look inside at what u r buying its not that hard to google gtx 460 which is minimum hardware requirements and go to nvidia page or ati page to to spec and look the numbers anr go to cpu/vga benchmark site and see where they rank before throughing your money on hardware that wont deliver...

i mean i keep pointing out i have 2+ yr old box and i dont have problem. so why is that. because i looked when i went puttnig my computer together before i spent the money... its a matter of learning from making mistakes and learning from things that work.. here looking works cause that what its all about the numbers can your box deliver or not.. for many having problem it cant at lest not to minimu hardware requirements and that server will kiock you so you dont lag other players who dont want to see u teleporting around, sliding around, going through walls. ect...

but it does notjust effect memory banwidth it effects texture fill rate which 6tx 460 is actually able to delive rhigher texture fill rate thans gtx 650 even though gtx 650 is running core clock much higher then gtx 460

so your gpu does not meet the minumum hardware requirements to run this game.

and whether the game sucks or not is personal oppinion and subjective.

you or anyone getting disconnected is not based on personal opinion or subjective

it is a matter of fact. but the reason you or anyone maybe getting disconnected may vary.

one person could be getting disconnected for one thing another person for another reason

the thing is to run down list of things until one pinpoints the problem and resolve it

the fact that many can play the game without getting disconnected means its not the game in itself

perhaps the code is not perfect, but overall it runs without crashing

if your crashing there is a reason. the dmp file will tell you why you crashed

you can get windbg from microsoft and find the exact reason for any crash

the crashing and the disconnect may or may not be releated

putting aside the crashing since we have no information on that

either could be number of things. my posts covers in detail how to isolate problem

it looks at both hardware and softare and internet connection.

also you should always look up your video card to see that its always better than the miniumum hardware requirmeents

yours does not meet the minimum hardware requirements because its a value card and the minimum hardware required one is not.

so that is perhaps why. also it can be number of things. unless you run something like msi after burner and hwinfo to see where the bottlenecks are your not going to know why

also look for errors in it may tell you why you got disconnected
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\The War Z\r3dlog.txt

also in my post there is section on checking your internet connection "if internet lag / internet connection issues"

also keep in mind the the california map is in testing after all so its still in development and it may not be as stable or as optimized as the colorado map so it would be more likely to cause a crash, although ive not seen it crash in colorado and ive logged at around 20 hours in it nor have i seen disconnects in that time.

perhaps its how far you are to servers since the servers could be very far away from you and that could result in you being kicked for high pings or any intermittent internet problems.

i get very low ping to servers, so i must be relatively near by and i normally have very good internet connection and my hardware although 2+ yr old is a good bit above the minimum recommended hardware , plus i have a clean box that is updated so i dont have problems with most games

but getting back to your problem if you want to resolve issue go down the list and consider upgrading your video card. just having a good cpu and memory does not mean it balances out. your cpu is waiting on your gpu not just on this game since one is signifiantly better tha other being your cpu is better than your gpu. when you buy components make sure they are balanced. toms hardware website is a good place to find such things... they often show gpu nd which cpu would be best for it in their gpu reviews. else one will roadblock the other. in your case i would think your cpu waiting underutilized a good bit while your gpu maxed out...

here take a look at your cpu

http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i5-4670K+%40+3.40GHz

it has reasonable cpu mark (7742)
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i5-4670K+%40+3.40GHz

which is couple thousand above minimum hardware requirement

and here take a look at typical intel quad core with 2.67 ghz (5004 cpu mark)
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i7+920+%40+2.67GHz&id=834

so its unlikely cpu or memory. that leaves gpu (which is what i think is slowing down your box cause it does not meet the minimum hardwarre requirements), internet, server, code...

also good to put this kind on game on ssd since then it wont take too long to get stuff from disk like when its loading it will take lot less time and less likely u would get disconnected then and while in game and getting asset files like textures and sounds it wont take so long and again less likely that you would be disconnected then.

from what i remember reading if your delay is 500 ms or more the server kicks you. that is half a second. which means ifyou have high ping, corrupt / delayed packets due to internet or even delayed packet cause you too busy going to dsk your gone...

your video card vs the *recommended* is a fraction better. again, that wouldn't make it or break it for your system on this game that is running outdated/old graphics to begin with. They just do a terrible job coding the game engine.

Its why their system minimum and recommended are both the same, they just don't know what is required to play their game, also, here are a proper document showing the system requirement. (they just ♥♥♥♥ed up their store page, like usual... as you can see, the Recommended on the site is what shows as minimum on the store page.. which is wrong)

lol look at my post i give direct link to the specifications for both gpu and i cite the very same specs u only show part of

but even in the little that you posted it completely supports and is 100% in sync and corresponse to what i told him

look you even posted he has 128 bit memory interface which is what i said

look th ehis memory bandwith and texture fill rate of his card vs the one in the minimum requirements u can see his is less even far less like 35% less for bandwidth

so the words in your post dont match even the data u posted

also u dont completely show the spec for the 460 why not post the rest post both completely so then its more than obvious that his card cant deliver the minimum performance required...

the store page is clear of the minimum hardware requirements going to pcgamingwiki and saying those are it is just bs

this game giant world, large draw distance lots of stuff map, lots of players, zombies, loot, ect. so u need hardware to do all that.

in number of thread you'all have gone on about not needing the minimum hardware requirments as per the steam store page. but this game giant world, large draw distance lots of stuff map, lots of players, zombies, loot, ect. so u need hardware to do all that.

also you;all say the game is not well optimized. yet you'all never say how it is not well optimized. i cites in other posts a complete list of common video game optimizations and i also said that the source code to this game infact the complete game is available out there manyt people have looked at it if there was a single something that they could have used to attacked this people they would have and they have not other than to released hacked version of what they stole and take credit for them even being so bold as try to charge for it...

so look up my thread which cites all the optimizations that exist and post which one they are not doing... cause they are if they were not the game would not even run on hghest end hardware. in fact number of the optimizations they do dayz / arma still not do and they are only now trying to change their engine to do them. only when bis does them will they be able to delive r agame with the features and functionality that this game does have which is far from being done. in fact nobody else in this kind of game so far has it. they have had it now for well over a year. people just have to have the box the exceeds the minimum hardware requirements

having minimum is just that a minimum if you really want to play the game with the eye candy you have to have and/or exceed the recommended requirements per store page

california needs more since its more. that is easy to so. and its still being developers and testing and may not be as optimized until released but still it is quite playable on my 2 yr old box i get great framed rate 1920x1200 maxed out.. so others who do not getting so good framerate or experience logic concludes have less hardware to throw at it cause it they had they would get even better experience than i and others have.. and its not unreasonable their requirements many games coming out with far smaller maps, less stuff in map. less texture less players, less zombies ect need more... this game is not 64 bit one which it would benefit form for maps like fcalifornia so u could up the stuff in it. right now california is issue mostly cause its 32 bit game and cant hold all in 32 bit address space so u see them going to disk for things like textre wich dont fit all in memory

your fighting againt the steam store page with god knows what. the store page is more than clear about the minimu m hardware requirements becuase you want to say it is what some 3rd party said about the game is not a source for information people looking to buy or looking to see what hardware they need

this is not a source its 3rd party hearsay at best
http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Infestation:_Survivor_Stories

this is the source that everyone should look at

minimum hardware requirement

http://store.steampowered.com/app/226700/

cut in pasted form the steam store page for minimum hardware requirements for this game

System Requirements

Minimum:
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
DirectX®:9.0
Hard Drive:3 GB HD space
Sound:Windows Compatible Sound Card
Other Requirements:Broadband Internet connection

also here is the source to full specs for gpu and anyone can see that gtx 650 < gtx 460 by the spec they post

http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-650/specifications

http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-460/specifications

less number of bits in memory address interface, less memory bandwidth and less texture fill rate. some of it quite less

so if u have less in every measurable way i dont see how any case can be made that its better

perhaps newer model, but not faster model not a model that can deliver more performance than the older model.. regardless of the fact that the newer model is running much faster freuency and may have some other improvement it sure dont have them in delivering more memory bandwidth and more texture fill rate..

its not bs pcgamingwiki is not a source. u all keep pointing to stuff that dont pan out steam store page is a source. that is the problem . u have to pick the right sources. and source normally means 1st party the pace it comes from the source is the word after all

not some other site that who knows wehre they got the data. certainly they didnt look at the steam store page.

and again having bigger number does not mean faster or that it meets the minimum hardware requirements value card is not performance card. they nerf them and they buff performance cards. everyone who knows hardware knows that

anyways the number are clear. why go to 3rd party site when the source has it more than clear...
