0x0000DEAD, Requested 0kb, instant crash
Closed, ResolvedPublic



I don't really know what exactly happened, the game just worked fine, until I started it a bit later that day (with and without addons) and I get always the same error code and the game crashes instantly. I reinstalled the game twice already and once I deleted every file depending ARMA also I tried already to fix it, but I just can't find anything on the internet that could help me, so a clue or help is very appreciated.

Thanks in advance, Baithoven.

At first, I recommend you repairing all your used mods or re-download them.

I´ve checked your RPT and there is Kernellbase.dll fault. It´s a fault caused by by failure in GPU (or some other software), the most responsible is GPU drivers which have access to PC core. The crash was caused by some failure in that code, so, I recommend you to re-install your GPU drivers or whole GPU.

Also, you can check your background processes via Task Manager if there are some harmful programs.

In any case, you can try these possible solutions:

Try restarting your computer and then verifying the integrity of the game cache for Arma 3.

  1. Restart your computer and launch Steam
  2. From the Library section, right-click on the game and select Properties from the menu.
  3. Select the Local files tab and click the Verify integrity of game cache... button.
  4. Steam will verify the game's files - this process may take several minutes.

Try all of the possible solutions listed on the Arma 3 Unusual process exit article on the Bohemia Interactive Community Wiki.

Try switching to and playing on the profiling game branch. After downloading new data verify the integrity of the game cache.

• profiling branch (special performance + profiling build - requires access code: CautionSpecialProfilingAndTestingBranchArma3), alternative download of needed binary possible from Dwarden's dropbox

Try to delete your profile folder (create a backup) a try to start the game.

The file yourprofilename.vars.Arma3Profile must be deleted.
Path: C:\Users\*username*\Documents\Arma 3

So, there is some next solutions.

try to decrease your graphic quality (if you're using ultra set high or medium). It´s possible that your have no more space on your GPU.
reinstall your GPU drivers
