thank you for the feedback.

Are you running any mods? If so please try to disable them first.

The next thing I would ask you to do is to provide us with the crashdumps.
If you are getting crash with vanilla version (without mods) please try to provide crashdumps created without the mods.

To get the crashdump files, please go to the Launcher > Options> Prepare Arma3 troubleshooting report, then save the ZIP file with the report somewhere where you can access it and upload it here.
Or you can look for the crashdumps manually. Crashdump (set of mdmp + rpt + bidmp with same timestamp) files should be located in this directory:
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Arma 3

Once you have the files in a ZIP, please drag&drop them into the comment box, or (if you encounter any issue with uploading it here) upload them to some free file sharing service (for example Dropbox) and post the link to the files into the comments.

Thank you


I have the same issue and have already tried to uninstall and reinstall the game, verify the integrity of the game files via Steam and disabeling all mods. The problem still persists. Here is the 7zip file for the crashdump.

I don't know if this is the correct place to post it but it's worth a try, I haven't been able to play the game once since that problem appeared.

Thank you.

Hey i managed to fix this issue by reinstalling DX in the arma files:

Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\Arma 3\_CommonRedist\DirectX\Jun2010

When u get to this file go to DXSETUP and run that. After that my error was fixed.

Another thing is on any GPU overclocking software, if you change your fan speed and input voltage to your card to 63% it stops this crash too
