Memory Write Error On Start - Status Access Violation Crash

{F84919}I am getting a game crash when I start the game with the following mods. I do not get any errors when I unload CUP Terrains. I don't understand how all of a sudden this one mod has out of nowhere started producing a launch crash. I get no crashes when running without mods, or with ANY combination of mods except CUP. I can't understand how running any combination works, but when I try to run this one mod, I get a crash.

Error reads: Arma 3: arma3_x64.exe - Application Error
The instruction at 0x77790944 referenced memory at 0x777da2c4. The memory could not be written. Click on OK to terminate the program.

Crash report is 0xC0000005 - ACCESS_VIOLATION


Operating System
Windows 7
Operating System Version
x64 Ultimate
Game Crash
Steps To Reproduce

Load mods including CUP. Game crash.

Additional Information

Game does not crash when not loading CUP. Makes zero sense to me. I have downloaded CUP from the Steam Workshop and from the main source, both produce the same error.

I have also tried verifying the integrity of the game cache to no avail.

If the mod causes the crashes you might want to contact the creator of the mod that it crashes the game.

Still could you please send us your Arma report?

Here's how to do that:

Here's a link to the .zip of the crash. I asked the mod maker, and a test running just CUP Terrains and Maps was successful. It must be something else. I will continue looking at what mod is breaking the game on launch.

Please disable -noLogs before crashing your game and creating the report.
The devs don't have useful logs if you disable them.

As dedmen said please disable -noLogs and crash the game again and send us a report so that we can see what was going on before the crash.

{F85013}My bad! I removed all command line parameters and left only skip logos, static background, world=empty and hyper-threading enabled.

New file attached.

Has someone had a chance to review the new attached log?

I sent the files further to programming just in case. We will see what they can tell us once they get to it.

Crashed somewhere inside graphics component. Only the devs can tell you more specifics.
Did you try completly redownloading CUP yet? There was also a CUP update recently. Good time to redownload everything now. Might be a corrupted model or texture.
