Why Disable/Turn Off Debug Monitor?

There are a few reasons that this option is turned OFF by default. Our insider sources tell us the DayZ Dev team has decided it can help veterans continue to play like a veteran. It is a great option to have off during Live Streams/Broadcasting since players can find players with the username. Streamers no longer need to use a cover up for their names with overlays that make the streaming more unbearable and user experience less enjoyable. Also, for YouTube videos, the Debug Monitor would be an option for some people looking to have less user distraction while watching their videos, since the Debug Monitor is not needed when watching the videos.

Lastly, the debug monitor is turned off for Screenshots since some people prefer to not display any statistics of Murders, their name, Bandit kills or any other statistic. The Debug Monitor is more of a private counter, and when people are using public utilities like Screenshots, Videos, and Streams, they should have the ability to turn ON and OFF the DayZ Debug Monitor using the DayZ UI Game Options feature.

NOTE ** Debug Monitor has a bug along with the latest update ** your ICONS are not going to function properly. You will be compensating to have Debug Monitor Working when turning it “ON” with your 4 Green icons that will NOT be working. The 4 Green icons are – Sickness Temperature Icon, Food/Hunger Icon, Thirst Icon, and Blood Icon.
