Crash on server host
Closed, DuplicatePublic


When trying to host a server on LAN or the internet the game crashes to desktop gicing the following error. "Include file a3\Functions_F_Heli\Params\paramViewDistance.hpp not found". Of course I have reinstalled the game and verified the game chache. Both options didn't resolve the problem. I have also checked if the file itself is where it should be and it is.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Start ArmA3 with no mods.
  2. Go to multiplayer.
  3. Try and host server LAN or internet
  4. Crash

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
