Black Sky and Crashing
Need More Info, NormalPublic


I will be playing and the blue sky will slowly start drawing in as pure black. If I go into settings and change the resolution it will make the sky look normal again. Sometimes it will come back and sometimes not. Then I usually crash not long after. Tried different Settings in Nvidia control panel, tried different versions of Nvidia drivers, tried different settings in Arma Reforger and no luck. Seems like it has gotten worse. I haven't been able to play over 10 minutes locally in Conflict. Just as I get interested it crashes. Unplayable. Any idea on the issue? Driving me insane! Been Arma fan since 2001!!

Game Crash
Steps To Reproduce

Just playing the game as normal and randomly crashes. Black sky randomly happens. I can play 5 minutes, sometimes 10. Doesn't seem to happen when doing a certain thing like getting into a vehicle or something. Just random. Arma should be attached under Additional Info with all the files but the BatteEye folder.

Hello cashxx.
Which software are you using to monitor the fps/run the ingame overlay? And have you tried to turn this software off to see if it has any effect on the issue?

I think Rivatuner and msi afterburner give that. Yes, I have tried disabling them. I just tried again now to make sure and disabled everything running. Only thing running were game clients like steam, origin, I even shut those down except steam and went back in. I set the graphics to high and as soon as I went into the local conflict the sky went black. I have the steam overlay disabled as well.

First time I have had the black sky go away on its own. This is what it usually does is just fill the sky.

Also what was running in background, all this PC is used for is gaming:

Tried playing online with latest update. Got to play maybe 5 min before crashing. Attaching logs.
