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

Can you upload it somewhere in winrar package please?
If package is smaller than 5,000k, so you can attach it here. Thank you.

In case of random crashes, please install latest graphic and sound drivers. Usage of driver cleaner before installing new drivers will make sure you have no corrupted drivers left on your computer.

I can see the attachemt and i just checked all info is there even the mission cache file of the mission that was being played.
Sry if 7zip is a problem I will upload a winrar version ASAP.

Having the same issue.
I´m downloading newest drivers now first to check if it might be driver-sided.
Giving feedback about that later.

Why the hell devs / managers close issues opened before the duplicated ones ????
Just doesn't make any damn sense ..

Having the same problem here. It freeze and after ctrl-alt-delete, I find a window saying Arma3 stopped working.

@Kid18120 - chill man. as long as one of the same issue is in the tracker we are good right? they know of your issue an actual "developer" responded to this post.. so jus chill man.

the moderators are flooded with dupes and trolls so just give em a chance.

IF you are playing "WASTELAND" and you get the freeze..then this may simply may be your problem bc wasteland is heavily scripted and will probabley take longer before it gets supported.

try to duplicate your freeze/crash while playing the developer made missions online.

I had the same issue, but I did a "clean install" of the NVidia driver. DO NOT just go into control panel and hit update.. go to actual website and download the latest driver..then click on "custom" install not "recommended".. click "clean" install. hope this helps.. it helped me.. but remember wasteland is not currently something to base your crashes off of if im not mistakin

Im having lockup issues too. Never had this problem only since the latest patch was installed. Playing on vanilla servers too.
