Crash immediately after launch
New, NormalPublic


Game freezes roughly 10-30 seconds after launching the game. Game freezes on the main menu and I am unable to alt+tab out of it. I have to force task manager to stay on top and close it. Task Manager says that Arma 3 is not responding and I have to force quit it. Task manager does not show my CPU, Memory, or Disk being higher than maybe 30-50% and the rest of my computer runs completely smoothly except Arma. From there I get an error message from Arma saying that the game closed in an unusual way. This has happened every time I try to play after coming back from about a month or so of not playing. I have changed none of my settings for the game since I stopped playing and I have never encountered this problem before. I have also disabled all mods. Thanks for your time.
