Hi, @corklike1

I´m very sorry but RPT said that you´re OUT of Memory. 16GB ram doesn´t mean that you can´t have this issue. Arma 3 is very demanding on PC virtual memory.

You can try these common possible solutions. Profiling branch contains much stronger performance. 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. It should clear some virtual memory space.

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

I am monitoring my RAM usage. the game just crashed with the ram usage at 47%... the game closed. it doesn't appear when I try to alt tab. however when I ctrl+alt+delete the game is still running and still using 2,460.1 MB of RAM.

I can load the game again and cause two instances of the game to be open

Hello, again

I´m afraid that we will need MDMP files. We´ve recieved just RPT and BIDMP. We´re not able to investigate without MDMP.

Thank you.
