  1. Greetings survivors! You're likely here because you're having an issue with the game, so let's cut right to the chase and get that fixed for you! You have three options for getting help with your technical issues, and you can pick whichever one suits you: 1) Follow some of the steps later in this post to diagnose/fix your issue. This fixes more than 90% of people's problems so we highly recommend checking here first! 2) Ask a question here on the forums for help from fellow players (see below for some tips on making a good post). 3) Contact us directly and we'll work with you to fix your problem. This may be a little slower than the other options, but we try to get to every request. Click here to send us a message and see below for some tips on how to ask for help! How To Ask For Help Whether you're asking for help here or contacting us directly it's important to include a few details to ensure we can help you out as easily and quickly as possible. Please always include the following details: What your issue is (be specific: don't say 'it doesn't work' or 'it crashes'. Tell us how far it gets, what happens when it crashes, etc.) What operating system you're using (Windows 10, OS X 10.12, Ubuntu Mate, etc) If possible, include the console file. Do this by playing/launching the game until you have the problem. Then close the game, and go to C:/Users/YourUserName/Zomboid (for Windows) and find the console.txt file. You can either upload the file, or copy and paste the text to something like pastebin.com and share the link from the paste. What version of the game you're playing. Whether it's the current release or one of the testing branches is important. If you don't know, that means you probably have the current release. What steps you've taken to try to fix it on your own, if any. Most Common Issues and Solutions Check here first for the most common problems players have and how to fix them! Problem: Game Crashes On Start Solution: Update your computer's graphics drivers. Do this by visiting your graphics card manufacturer's website, and once your drivers are up to date restart your computer. This fixes the vast majority of crashes. Here are the website links based on who makes your graphics card: ATI/AMD http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx NVIDIA http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us INTEL http://downloadcenter.intel.com/ Problem: Various Issues with Gameplay or Crashing Solution: The next most common problem is with mods. You may not think a mod is the issue, and other people might run the game okay with a particular mod, but always check the game without mods prior to asking for help. Issues with mods and mod compatibility make up another huge portion of the issues people have. Problem: Game Resolution is Too High and Options are Hidden/Off Screen/Gone Solution: Delete your "options.ini" file in \username\Project Zomboid\ folder, or manually edit it and change the resolution to smaller.
  2. What was your name on the server and when were you connected if you don't mind me asking?
  3. Thanks for the feedback Soul Filcher, we super appreciate it and everyone else who showed up!
  4. Hey guys- we've got another multiplayer madness megatest coming up for anyone who'd like to participate! The Spiffospace server is running a brand new IWBUMS build, featuring some exciting new multiplayer zombie performance improvements! We're trying to test out multiplayer stability with this new system, so having as many people on as possible would be great! All we need is for you to be running around on the server for an hour or so and having fun! Event begins at roughly 5 PM on December 18th! The main testing point is how zombie movement looks on the server, especially zombies close to you. Zombies farther away may not be as consistent, but we're hoping the closest zombies to you should be more consistent now. KEY GIVEAWAY IS FINISHED! During the event we will check all players active on the server and those will be given codes. You'll want to post in this thread or message Rathlord on Discord to claim your code if you are online for the giveaway! SERVER DETAILS: *Join the IWBUMS testing branch of the game. If you don't know how, follow the instructions here. *Join the official Spiffospace Canada server through the game's server listing. IMPORTANT INFO WE NEED: Please report any buginess, crashes, etc that you find here in this thread. This test is to check on multiplayer stability and general playability of the build. We'd really like to hear how consistent zombie behavior is, especially those closest to you.
  5. Thanks to everyone who showed up and for all the help!

  8. There's not an error there, is there something more?
  9. Hey guys, specifically for performance-only feedback, can we get people to give this a test and post here: https://theindiestone.com/forums/index.php?/topic/23583-project-zomboid-needs-you-yes-you/ Thanks!

    Climate Change

    We're looking for feedback on performance for this build, if you guys give it a try please post here with the information requested:
  11. Hey guys, with the latest vehicle build we introduced a plethora of changes that should make the game faster almost universally. We'd like to hear from you guys and see how well we did. I can't stress enough how useful this feedback would be for us so we can see how well we did and what we still need to work on. It would be awesome if you guys could just have a stomp around on the newest vehicle build (make sure you got an update from the evening of 3/15 UK time/late afternoon US time). Run and drive around and let us know how it feels, and post your specs and what you see from your framerate here. Steam has a built-in frame counter now! All you have to do to turn it on is go to the Steam menu in the top left, click settings, click "In-Game" from the list on the left, and enable the "In-game FPS counter" from the dropdown menu. Have a look at your fps and let us know that and your system specs (at the least your RAM, Graphics card, and processor) if you can. The perfect feedback would look something like this: Don't forget to include your resolution! Make sure to let us know how it feels compared to previous builds especially. And that's my real feedback from this build- I only drop below 60 when I go to maximum zoom out and drive as fast as I can through a city in a car. The game now has an uncapped framerate option! We highly recommend you use it in this test!! MAKE SURE YOU'RE ON THE VEHICLE BRANCH AS PER INSTRUCTIONS HERE: https://theindiestone.com/forums/index.php?/topic/22436-released-vehicle-tech-test-build/ Edit: Also, please make sure to test without mods. There's known problems with hydrocraft in this build, and mods can also considerably negatively impact your performance, *especially* if they're causing problems.
  12. If anyone can report on their performance, especially driving around, running, etc compared to old builds that'd be really useful for us. Please note that we're tracking an issue with compatibility mode (also turning off zoom in menu). Just uh... don't, for now. It's bad. We're aware of it
  13. At first glance, looks like you have a mod installed that's probably not compatible with brand new build
  14. Can you give us your console output? C:/users/YourUserName/Zomboid/console.txt Upload it to www.pastebin.com and put the link here and I'll have a look. Might just be an installation problem.
  15. Also is this singleplayer or multiplayer?
