I have been having this problem also. I will successfully parry an attack, and when I try to counterattack, nothing happens. No riposte, no parry then attack, I just parry and then stand there like a stupid donkey for several seconds even though I'm clicking furiously to attack. Nothing else is happening - I'm not being hit, so it isn't hit-stun, I'm not being bumped by a horse, because there is no one else around. I didn't miss the parry, it connected. But quite often I just end up standing there unable to attack, so the opponent just attacks again, and I have to parry. Sometimes it all works fine, then I'll be fighting someone and I can't attack back after a parry. Then it will be fine again.
There is definitely something buggy going on.

I got real bugs like dead space alien ragdolls and crashing at hour long match right before we win.

I have had no input problems. When you have a problem is it specifically chaining a parry into an attack or just starting an attack whenever?

When i riposte, i input attack (try holding instead of rapidly clicking if single click is not working) right before they impact my parry. That triggers the riposte, not after the parry. But attacking after parry should ve fine too. Is Vsync on?

Honestly sounds like a Hardware problem.
You can try checking for any kind of background programs injecting I guess. Things with Overlays for example or MSI Afterburner and similar. I've had games not work due to Afterburner for example, but I doubt it's any of that.
Usually these funsies happen when the GPU is dying. What GPU do you have and how old is it? Do you still have warranty?
You could try underclocking it with some tuner software like MSI Afterburner and maybe keeping an eye on GPU-Z to see whether or not you can find any specific triggers,

If you have the possibility to do so you could also try either putting the GPU in another PC and seeing if it works, or putting another GPU in your PC and seeing if it works. That's a lot of work though for one game, I know.

I don't have any overlays that i am aware of. But then again I do not even know what afterburner is.

Video card is that Nvidiai something 1060. I think GTX? Not at my computer right now but I do not have another computer to try it with. Video card was obtained last spring and this this first time I been putting in serious time in a game that is demanding at all (originally got it so i could run kingdom come better but then got too busy in life). It definitely should not be dying.

What is GPU-z and how do i watch for triggers.

Also i am wondering if more ram will solve my problem. Only max servers crash me and less so on better ping. I need go check again but i might only have 8 gigsnof RAM. Maybe 12.

That would not solve my vector stretching issues that plague the battlefield with occasional deadspace aliens, but my crashes seem unrelated to them anyways.

Im on am empty good ping crontkine server soloing objectives and game runs fine. So number of players and or ping seems main factor

Have you tried an older video driver?

No but then if another game isn't working everyone would be "well update your driver". If there was a specific driver someone could recommend, i would but shooting in dark at random old drivers csn be very time consuming with no reward at the end.

Plus i just found out there are frontline servers with good ping for me. Just no one plays in them. Found one with players todau and everyone sadly did quit at end of match ritual before we could build player momentum

All I can think is something hardware related, that's usually a sign that your GPU is not happy :(

Yeah well that really helps.. I can Ultra most time and turning everything down does nothing.

I was really hoping this vector stretching thing would flag it but apparently i am unique. And people wonder why "simpletons" like consoles. Don't get me wrong, i love my pc world. Just not the mainstream games for it because custom rigs always can have custom problems.

should've bought the game instead of pirating ;]

Oh I only wish lol

I tried refunding (steam) a while back but o had already "played it for 8 hours" which was mostly just me trying to get the game working.

It be nice if I could talk to dev directly about this. Game crashes aside, i shoudknt have vectors morphing ragdols into dead space aliens. Sometime the ragdolls even walk around in the battle field die to their stretched legs supporting them in the air. Its kind of funny actually. And i had already done a clean reinstall on a seperate hard drive.

So far it seems that the settings don't really affect the issue much. For now I would assume that playing around in the settings won't get you anywhere.
No idea where to go from here... To me it's like a needle in a haystack. :-/

Do you have mods installed? Do you use some kind of tweak tool? Have you already tried reinstalling Mordhau or verifying the cache?

I play fine on deathmatch servers that have less ping and less people with all graphics high/ultra. But you know.. I want to join the frontlines. Also no one joins Chicago team deathmatch server so im stuck playing ffa

As said beggining of forum post i did fresh install on even a different hard drive.

Ill verify cache for kicks. I intuitively knew none of this would work amd it was some weird deeper problem. Migjt be UE 4 doesnt like my rig as i haven't played other ue 4 games

I would only take the extreme cases for the first debugging attempt, e.g. no ragdolls at all, FOV at max/min. If that doesn't change anything you don't need to bother with fine-tuning.

We are not targeting magic numbers and random luck, but just want to see whether it makes any difference at all - for better or worse.

I don't know myself around Windows. Is there a chance that the DirectX version might be outdated?

turned all graphics right down. Did not seem to help at all. Vector strechign still occured, just not in the ragdolls. Also crashing seems unrelated to when random vector tearing occurs, but cant really tell.

Thinking about your FOV comment i decided to return everything to default wondering of the default fov worked best. game actaully lasted longer than when i had everything set to rock bottom. but still crashed, i been trying borderless window recently as it makes getting out of crash easier.

When in borderless window mode i had the option to properly restart program without force quitting first because the pop up mordhau crash box was actaully selectable now versus when doing fullscreen and crashiing. When i crashed a second time, and I selected 'send report and close' it returned to the screen of my previous crash, and I still had to forcequit that Mordhau application that was apparently running still somehow. Will try running again with defaulted settings as i may have been running two mordhau at once. Will play with FOV next.

What if super low fov helps? i cant really play like that even if it did help which I doubt it will, where would i go from there?

Download your current drivers and save them on Desktop and then run this
https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html
Let it uninstall, restart and then install the previously saved drivers again.

Not sure it will actually change anything as it may not be a driver problem but give it a shot.

Attempted, really good software, helped me to a proper clean reinstall.

Vectors still stretching.

Turned off ragdolls completely, game few minutes later to see if vectors will stilll stretching. Graphics are all currently set lowest possible.

You can uninstall the driver through remove programs on Windows. Then you can just reinstall it from the Company's website.

I selected the clean install option from the thing i downloaded but it seemed to have saved my previous settings so im dubious about how clean the install was. Well come back witj weird ragdoll pics or good news.

Haven't seen that one before. Have you tried setting graphics really low? Have you tried changing your FOV?

Got any recommendation for FOV or ibjist shoot in dark a hundred times till i find the magic number that might not even exist?

Had recently updated through boosterdrive.

May try manually myself but skeptic it will fix stretch arm ragdolls. I have not done a lot of monkeying with FOV; have any recommendations before i shoot in the dark?

Have played with graphics settings but considering the game usually runs everything at max just fine, I have avoided stooping to bottom barrel settings. I did turn ragdolls to low and count to like only 10 in case ragdolls were causing me to crash with ragdolls sometimes turning into ragdoll aliens. I suspected this only because i never crashed when playing on a team deathmatch server which had less people and less ping. For all i know packet losses are causing me to crash with bad ping servers as only the Chicago servers seem to have a good ping for me. But its hard to tell because no big pop server has under a 120 ping for me. I have excellent internet before you go there. Will try bottom barrel graphics after manually monkeying with drivers.

Am I the only one in the world with this problem?

Tried a fresh install on another harddrive

Yeah i got indie games with better ping servers over seas than mordhau on same continent sometimes.

I saw another post of a guy from North Michigan having troubles finding good ping servers.

Im thunderbay canada northwesr ontario which is a few a hours north of minnesotam

I have great internet and 120 ping servers for me are usually a different continent. 80 ping is usually far on same continent where 60 ping and less is decently close by for me.

In mordhau there are no frontline servers under 120 ping for me. There are a few death match servers under 80 for me and then like 1 team death match under 80. Somehow middle of day had lots of players on team death match server but it was empty in the evening. Its quite frustrating as the team deathmatch server was first time I had no crashing issues. I don't even care about the slight input delay, the game is quite generous for parry timing, I just want to play the game.

sometimes character models look like aliens out of deadspace. Sometimes my whole screen tweaks out from scenary vectors stretching.
