Online games crash either during the lobby, downloading resources or in game itself after numerous freezes.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The issue revolves specifically around multilayer, I've found the Alpha the work fine when doing edits or the showcases however when I try to interact with a online experience problems begin to occur.

The first signs I encounter are freezes in the lobby of a game (The lobby where you pick your class such as a rifle man and a faction.) these will last unto a minute or two or might possibly crash. The second chance of crashing is when downloading the resources to play the match (This is the usual.) The final issue is of course in game. I'll experience freezes in game that like in the lobby will last up to a minute or two. (Do note this is not DE-sync or lag or FPS, the game freezes and tabbing out will yet allows me to tab back in, game clearly hasn't crashed.) The game will resume after which, this may occur few times if I am lucky enough before the game itself completely hits a black screen, only to tab out to find that the game has yet again crashed. I've also noticed there is a lot of connectivity issues to multiple servers with extremely high ping rates for the majority of servers currently which will lower and then suddenly boost right back to 2000+. {F16901}


Legacy ID
Game Crash
Steps To Reproduce

Simply attempt to join a server being hosted, usually the Death Match servers or COOP. You'll notice multiple freezes begin to occur if you're unlucky. Failing that, you'll crash during downloading resources. Failing that you'll experience the same freezes just like in the lobby and then finally crash.

Additional Information

Eh, there really isn't much more to say that I haven't said in the description above. Asides from that sorry that I made this quite lengthy.

We need dxdiag and files from this folder for solve your problem. C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\Arma 3 Alpha\

Can you upload somewhere in winrar package please?
When package will be smaller than 5,000k, so you can attach here. Thank you.

I had kind of this problem before, but that was I through steam opted for the DEV Alpha and instead of last stable alpha.

So if you have opted for the DEV alpha try Turing it off

I've uploaded the specified folders. I've also noticed that the problem is more frequent on higher player based servers. (Servers with a larger amount of active players.)

I'm suffering from pretty much the same thing ; The most common freezes for me are during the lobby screen, and a crash very shortly after joining a server.
I also have 2500+ ping on almost all servers, even those in my country (UK). I do not have these problems on ArmA II.

I've tried quite a few times on various servers - Always the same so far.

I have experienced this issue, however my game has yet to crash.
The game sometimes freezes on the lobby screen, I can move the mouse cursor around but the UI doesn't react to my clicks. Freezes also occur during game, they usually last from about 30 seconds to 1 minute+, after the freeze the game returns to normal. This issue does not seem to be related to graphical settings and complexity of the scenario, the game froze even when I was standing around, alone on the tarmac, waiting for a pick up.
