Additional Information

My user made scenarios can still be played but not edited. Crash report is attached.

.. I did mess about with the mission .sqm file on one of my scenarios in an attempt to stop it trying to play an intro scene. Line 2 of the sqm simply said 'Intro' and I deleted it out using Atom text editor. That is when my troubles started. After the first crash I put the line back in but it didn't fix the problem. Whoops. I guess I shouldn't have done that.

I seem to have resolved the problem by simply removing the affected scenario folder from the Arma 3 Missions folder and replacing it with a backup I created recently. Luckily I didn't lose a heap of work as the backup is fairly up to date. .. It does seem a little strange that 1 bad scenario out of 14 could make the whole thing crash but I'm happy that the solution was fairly painless. I will leave this ticket open for a day or so just to make sure the problem really is solved. .. Cheers.
