Crash Report
New, NormalPublic


I closed Arma 3 last night and just now realized the executable was still running in the background when the launcher wouldn't let me access the mods page. I closed it with the Windows task manager and was given a message about "Arma 3 was closed in an unusual manner" and given the option to save the following report:


Have Not Tried
Operating System
Windows 7
Operating System Version
Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-Bit
Game Crash
Additional Information

It's probably in the report, but I should mention that I was running over 77 mods that could have contributed. However I think it more likely has to do with the fact that Arma was eating up all my RAM and the system was lagging.

Thank you for the report. From the Arma report you send I found you received an 0x00000001 – UNABLE_TO_INIT_DXGI. Which means the game is unable to initialize a graphical subsystem.

Here are some possible solutions if the issue should occur again.

  • Update the graphics card drivers to a newer version.
  • Rollback the graphics card drivers to an older version.
  • Check the temperature of your GPUs and CPUs.
  • Disable the Steam Overlay.
