Access Violation
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Whenever I launch Arma 3 (vanilla or mods), my game crashes or automatically close to windows either with the access violation status code or no status code at all and game automatically closes after playing for about 15 minutes. This happens on singleplayer, multiplayer, or editor preview (as long as I'm playing and about 15 minutes later I crash). My desktop that runs a 670 GTX and i5 3570k CPU has no problem, but this ACER Nitro 5 with RTX 2060 and i5 9300H constantly crashes. Video cards update does not help either.

I have tried reinstalling the game, moving it to a different hard drive, changing the memory allocator, turning down my settings and tweaking it according to guides, deleting my Arma 3 profile and making a new one, setting priority above normal, ran steam as an Admin, using 64 bit and 32 bit client, enable/disablng hyper threading, turning off Geforce Experience, enabled large page support, enable all extra threads, set video limit to 5120 and seems to still crash every time.

I tried reverifying game cache and doesn't seem like anything to download. I tried no mods this time and drove around Tanoa and it seems to be out of memory error for me.

Here's the updated rpt and bidmp files.

Basically the game freezes after I drove around for 10-15 min and I have to CTRL + ALT + DELETE to kill it.

Next one: I removed all those extra parameters from launch, placed some OPFOR units, drove through them and once the firefight starts, the game crashes with another out of memory and swap file too small.

well it says your Swap file is too small, did you try to increase the size of your swap file?
Your page file seems to be 8.8GiB in size, maybe increase it to 12GiB.

Ah sorry for late post. Increasing the swap file with minimum 8 GB and max 16 GB in my settings actually fixed it. I should've mention that this is resolved from our past discussion on Discord. Thanks for the help!
