Hi,
could you please try with these command line parameters?
https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Arma_3_Launcher#Command_line_parameters

I have tried safe mode and i have tried launching the game itself on launching the game itself it still crashes and when launching it in safe mode with and without graphic hardware acceleration it still closes it self or hard crashes

Could you please attach here your game logs? Logs are here: Windows: C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\Arma 3\
Thank you.

I Will later today sorry for the wait busy with work.

I dont got anyway to getting to game logs i think as i dont got the stuff you said just that

Could you please try start Launcher with these parameters?
Command line parameters
Launcher recognizes following parameters (parameters are not case sensitive):
-safeMode - the Launcher will start in the safe-mode.
-noHwa - The Launcher will start with graphic hardware acceleration disabled (only the Launcher, this switch has no meaning for the game itself).
-noLauncher - Skips the Launcher and starts Arma 3 directly. Unless no other options is specified it starts 64-bit version of the game on 64-bit OS, 32-bit when you have 32-bit OS.

Launching the game through files did work but idk if i can still use mods without the launcher and doing safe mode still gave me the same file and crash

Launching the game through files work and with no launcher works in safe mode and nohwa both do not work but my main problem is still the launcher not launching
