Crash Reporter

In the unfortunate event of a crash, the Crash Reporter collects crash information in order to allow Bohemia Interactive to collect and process the crash reasons.

This is an important stone in the user feedback process.

The Crash Reporter dialog.


The Crash Reporter dialog offers a feedback field allowing the end user to provide details regarding the crash:

  • The most important aspect of a report is reproducibility: which relevant steps lead to this crash
  • If the reproduction is not guaranteed (e.g a "random" crash), then an accurate description of the context is welcome
  • If there was absolutely nothing relevant, just sending crash files will do
Correct Feedback Incorrect Feedback
  • 100% repro: place a HMMWV, get in as driver, then switch to any rear seat = crash
  • Using World Editor with these mods crashes on opening Everon
  • The Game Master teleported me twice in 5s, then I crashed
  • Pasting in viewport does that
  • It doesn't work
  • It crashed
  • Fix it!

The dialog allows the user to cancel report sending.

The files are automatically sent if the dialog is not available, unless the disableCrashReporter startup parameter is used.

Crash Reports Log

CrashReports.log is a file containing information from crash reports that were sent to Bohemia Interactive through Crash Reporter. It contains the following crash information:

  • Date and Time
  • Game version
  • State - Canceled, Failed (with error code), Successful (with report's GUID)

The GUID can be used as a reference to keep track while communicating with Bohemia Interactive.

The Dedicated Server stacks reports as the server may run unattended with autorestart. Only the last crash report is kept for Game/Workbench.
