  1. Hm, can you try running the 32 bit mode of the game? It should use less RAM and hopefully crash less because of that. The computer is pretty low end to run 41 without a hitch even if it seems to run smoothly. Run the "ProjectZomboid32.bat" file found in "Steam\steamapps\common\ProjectZomboid" to see if that helps

    PZ will not open

    Can you try deleting the "logs.zip" file found in "C:\Users\YourUserName\Zomboid" on your computer? If it is a Mac computer, it will be in the "User/Zomboid" folder. That file can sometimes cause the issue that you are explaining and deleting it can fix the issue, this has been fixed in the future beta versions already.
  3. Could you share your console log if your game freezes and crashes again? Go to C:\Users\YourUserName\Zomboid and attach the "console.txt" file to your next message. It would also be useful if you shared your computer specifications with us. What is your CPU, graphics card and RAM?
  4. I believe the "More Traits" mod can cause a lot of issues as well. My recommendation is just starting a new game without mods and see if the game has issues there.
  5. Can you try resetting the settings to default? Just go to "C:\Users\YourUserName\Zomboid" and delete the "options.ini" file found there. If that doesn't help, try verifying your game files Steam Library > Right click Project Zomboid > Properties > Local Files > Verify Local Files
  6. I don't know if there is any fix for this bug currently, it seems to be a new bug in the 41 test version. You are playing on the IWBUMS testing version right?

    It could be because of your system specifications not meeting the recommended level to run 41. Can you tell us what your graphics card, CPU and RAM is?
  8. I am pretty sure going to the "Games" menu at the top of the Steam client and adding selecting "Add a Non-Steam game" will work. You can then just browse the 32 bit file and can launch it from Steam. It should still launch the game in nonsteam mode, as it just runs the .bat file basically. I dont know of any other way to make it so you could run in 32.bit mode otherwise, not really familiar with the Steam client workings that much.

    PZ doesn't work

    Try going to "C:\Users\YourUserName\Zomboid" and delete the "Lua" folder there
  10. I believe the crashes are mainly caused by the integrated Intel graphics card. Build 41 doesn't seem to play well with those cards especially. I have seen similar crashes with cards HD 2000 all the way to 5500. I would recommend trying to run the game in 32 bit mode, as that is usually more stable to play on weaker graphics cards. You can run the game in 32 bit mode by going to your game folder "Steam Library > Rightclick ProjectZomboid > Properties > Local Files > Browse Local Files " and running the "ProjectZomboid32.bat" file Another thing that I can suggest is lowering any graphics settings, enabling Texture compression, disabling zoom and such and making sure that your graphics drivers are up to date. You can download and install the latest driver from here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/86210/Intel-HD-Graphics-5500
  11. Does a new save work or is it just this specific save that crashes? Or does any save crash after you start a new game and then save it?
  12. It is true that 64 bit allows for more RAM, but that also means that it allocates more RAM to the game and therefore the game uses more RAM that the rest of the computer and the graphics card needs to process the game, if that makes sense. So usually 32 bit is more stable on weaker computers. There was an update every few weeks, though I dont think there would be anything save breaking. I still recommend starting a new game if there are any problems with the save, just to see if its save specific. Recommended requirements: OS: Vista, 7, 10 64bit OS required Processor: Intel 2.77GHz Dual Core; Quad-core recommended Memory: 4Gb Ram Hard Disk Space: 3gig Video Card: Dedicated graphics card with 1 GB of RAM minimum and GLSL 1.2 support Sound: FMOD compatible sound card As you can see, a dedicated graphics card is recommended. You have an integrated graphics card and those seem to have a lot of issues with IWBUMS, especially intel series. I saw issues on anything from HD 2000 up to 5600. The logs tell us what happens during launch, though if its a crash related to the graphics card not being able to handle the game graphics the console just cuts off. Which is what happens in your case as there are no out of memory errors or anything serious that would cause crashes. If it cuts off like this and you have an integrated graphics card and it is the beta version of the game, its very likely that its a graphics card crash based on all that. The listed configuration would definitely run the game just fine, even a lower spec PC would, though it is important to have a dedicated graphics card as those are powerful enough to run the beta without a hitch and usually have the latest drivers to run it without any issues compared to the integrated graphics cards.
  13. It could be because of the RAM, since 64 bit uses somewhat more ram than 32 bit. And that could be crashing the game. The game also needs even more ram because of the weaker graphics card. Question, have you updated the drivers from the official Intel website?: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/81499/Intel-HD-Graphics-4000 Usually that fixes these errors, though there are a lot of variables that go into it like background programs, game settings, computer settings and so on. It is pretty hard to figure out how to make the latest beta run on weaker graphics since every computer has different hardware these days, and while someone with HD 4000 might run it just fine, someone else cannot even launch it. Either way, I can only really suggest updating the drivers, playing in 32 bit mode and lowering any settings that you can. Maybe even try playing in compatibility mode or disabling the Zoom in game. As to changing the resolution, you can edit or delete the "options.ini" file in "C:\Users\YourUserName\Zomboid"
  14. Can you tell us your system specifications and can try lowering any settings in the options? Disabling Zoom, lowering the resolution even, enabling texture compression. From the console it looks like a graphical crash. The IWBUMS version has increased hardware requirements right now and weaker integrated graphics cards have trouble running it.
  15. I imagine it would be useful to share the logs of the freezes as well. Just play the game and get a few of the mentioned freezes. After you quit the game go to "C:\Users\YourUserName\Zomboid" Attach the "logs.zip" file found in that folder to your next message. This could show us if there are any errors happening when the freezes happen.
