  1. Check out this comment for an explanation as to what might cause that issue and how to fix it. https://steamcommunity.com/app/108600/discussions/0/3038228835123752334/#c3038228835124788021
  2. It seems like a mod item is erroring out and causes the crash, though it doesn't point to which mod it is causing it, I can only suggest checking for any issues with the mods that you have enabled.
  3. The error seems to be a generic map error, it does not point to a specific mod. Best I can recommend is disabling your mods in batches and then starting the game again, this way you should eventually find the mod that causes the issue.
  4. Either is very unlikely since as mentioned PZ doesn't really have the ability to just minimize itself, and if it did it would be more widespread. Meaning this issue is very specific to your own computer setup which makes it pretty much impossible to recommend a single fix, as basically anything in Windows might cause that, any background programs and monitor setups and so on. I would recommend playing with Fullscreen / Windowed / Borderless modes to see which one works best.
  5. Internet speed between you two, antivirus, hard drive speed. That's about it really. Port forwarding does not improve the connection.
  6. Interesting, that makes it very hard to diagnose as to what might cause that and how to fix it. It seems like it is caused most likely by a connection issue between you and your friend, perhaps a slow internet between you two (can be on either side). It could also mean that something is blocking the connection, either on your side or on your friends side, an antivirus perhaps. Other than that I don't really have anything specific I can recommend except looking into those things yourself since it seems to be externally influenced and not an issue due to the game itself.
  7. The game doesn’t have the ability to minimize itself. It’s likely an application running in the background, such as an overlay program, closing it, or perhaps an issue between the two monitors, likely the OS not scaling it up properly. I can only really recommend checking for any background programs issues between the two monitors (if they have different resolutions or refresh rates for example)
  8. Have you been able to connect to the server before? And have you tried connecting to any other servers? This is to check whether it is an issue with that specific server or with the game itself.
  9. It is very important that the mod will be enabled both in the workshop and mods tabs, otherwise it will not load as it needs to be enabled in both of them. I would probably recommend unsubscribing from the mod, then restarting your PC and then subscribing and enabling it again. This is to make sure that the mod downloads the latest version properly.
  10. Is it a specific mod that doesnt work? Do any other mods work? And have you enabled the mod both in the Workshop and Mods tab in the server settings?
  11. The error seems pretty ambiguous as it seems like the game errors out because it cannot spawn a zombie in a square as far as I understand it. That can mean basically anything as it can be tied to map mods or any mods that change anything about zombies (their behavior or clothing etc) Best I can suggest is disabling mods and checking whether the issue gets fixed, that way you can find out which mod causes that. As for Linux, the game should run just fine on it. Though depending on the distro there might be other issues depending on how the monitor is being handled by Linux itself and such.
  12. Unless you manually back up the saves then there is no way to revert the dead character. As for your other question, I am not sure what you mean by "let himself get eaten" You mean you were attacked by multiple zombies and dragged down? That's just a standard way you get killed if not careful.
  13. In that case can you try playing with a few settings in your options? For example uncapping the framerate, which seems to have fixed framerate issues for another player here:
  14. Have you tried switching the game to borderless or windowed mode to see if it happens there as well? I assume it could be a problem with the game being fullscreen and perhaps the monitor itself having a weird refresh rate.
  15. Do you have any antivirus installed? They can sometimes cause these micro stutters you are mentioning, especially when loading chunks and zombies. This is due to the game saving the info in files, and the AV keeps checking those new files for viruses, causing stutters. This can be fixed by adding an exception to the Av for the "Zomboid" folder found in "C:\Users\YourUserName\Zomboid", this way the AV will not check the save files anymore and it could fix the stutter.
  16. What are your computer specifications? And what kind of stutter is it? Does it happen periodically where the game freezes for a moment or do you just have constantly low FPS?
  17. This can happen when switching between builds due to the incompatibility between some files. You can fix this by going to "C:\Users\YourUserName\Zomboid" and deleting the "Lua" folder found there.
  18. I believe we would need more information than this, such as the location of the crates and whether you asked the admins to help you test out the disappearance, does it disappear for other players after you log out or specifically when you log out, then log back in and then check the crate. If it was widespread on the whole server I would assume the DupeItem error would be in the hundreds for everyone, so it has to be something specific in your case.
  19. What AxioM above me said is correct, due to Apple dropping the Nvidia drivers, the game cannot render the 3D models properly without them. Only fix is to switch to the integrated card and run the game that way. Some info on that here: https://steamcommunity.com/app/108600/discussions/0/3106896589756154566/ https://steamcommunity.com/app/108600/discussions/0/1608274347726860915/?ctp=2#c4910566145640463673
  20. Could you tell us your system specifications? What is your OS and any other info like the CPU, RAM and graphics card that you have.
  21. Additionally to asking what your computer specifications are, do you have any mods enabled? Those can cause a lot of lag as well.
  22. Yeah it does look like an inventory item, perhaps more specifically an item that spawns in the zombie inventory once the zombie died (like clothing and other items and such)
  23. Do you have any mods enabled?
  24. I don't think there is a way to specifically track what item causes the issue, best I can suggest is disabling the mods one by one to figure out which specific mod is causing the issue and then work from there.
  25. Unfortunately that might mean that the connection between you and your friend is just too bad, as the game will disconnect you if it takes way too long to load the map. This can be affected by your connection to the server, it can be affected if you have a slow hard drive or if the server has a slow hard drive. And it can be affected by an antivirus constantly checking the server files being downloaded, which usually goes hand in hand with the other issues. This means that I don't really have anything I can recommend other than trying to improve the connection between you two / shut off any background programs to give priority to the game.
