Closed, ResolvedPublic


Hi all,

Hope someone can help me. I have Arma 3 already since 2018 on Win10, never a problem or error. Since a week ago the game keeps crashing after 3min in the game (not even able to reach to the gameplay yet). The issue starts happening since the update of: OPREP S.O.G Update 1.3

The errors comes with several reports as:

  • Unable to init dxgi
  • error access denied
  • access violation

I followed the most basic steps already no results, all the options below are I tried already:

  • Re-install Game
  • Run game without any mod (all mods are also removed)
  • Delete all folders regarding to Arma 3 in Documents
  • Re-install NVIDIA drive + Upgrade / - Downgrade.
  • Delete and not load any DLC of Arma 3
  • Disable the Steam Overlay
  • Updated all windows updates
  • Repair all Microsoft visual programs
  • Verify game files on steam

System info:
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050
Driver Version 536.23
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8750H CPU @2.20Ghz
7.85 GB RAM
