From arma3_x64_2016-12-14_20-39-59.rpt:

Exception code: C0000005 ACCESS_VIOLATION at 021B621D

Would you like to try these possible solutions, @MrCats?

Reproducibility Random

Can you confirm that the crash does not always occur when switching maps?

Does the game crash when switching to other maps like Stratis or VR (Virtual Reality)?

I just did a fresh install of Windows 10+Temps are fine. And yes it is random because if you are loaded up for lets say 1 min it does not happen you really have to play for 5 to 10 min and the switch maps for it to happen. I know it is random but i am just trying to help here with the X64 build.

@MrCats, have you tried verifying the integrity of the game cache? This is to make sure that the game files are correct and not corrupt.

Yes + game crashed again just closed down.

Just put a guy down in the editor and it did crash again now a error.

Yep just had the crash when switching maps on latest dev build.

mdmp link:

Yeah I can always repro it when I've played for a while on another map. It's usually very quick crash then.

I've also tested this only with Altis and Tanoa (both ways)

At first i was not sure but it crashes every time now after switching maps.

Same crash on latest exp.



could you please try to use the 32bit executable to see whether this issue persists even there?

Thank youi

No crash on 32Bit here is the RPT File

This issue seems to be resolved in the latest RC Build.

Thanks for the info :)
