Random crashing after some minutes playing
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The game crashes without an error message (Arma 3.exe has stopped working) after playing for a while, this seems to be completely random, sometimes 5 minutes into the game, sometimes half an hour.

It seems not to be connected to doing any special thing, sometimes it happens when in a car, sometimes while running around in the middle of nowhere

could be a memory leak {F17059}

bump - did someone even read this?

Please fill up the report according to HOW TO GUIDE in the top right corner.

Provide some steps to reproduce. State if its SP or MP crash and if MP,
please state TYPE and NAME of the MISSION/MOD you are playing, how many players were playing at the time etc. Try to provide as much info as possible.
If the crash is happening when playing custom MAP/MOD,try to reproduce the crash also on our official Arma III missions.
I recommend (prior to contacting us using the Feedback Tracker ) contacing the creator of MAP/MOD.

Also do not BUMP reports as its not helping anything. Thank you

it is not connected to any mission, i tried it in every showcase with just waiting, in multiplayer it happens faster, but just as fast on vanilla as in mods

there are no steps to reproduce due to it being completely random

sorry i can't be more specific, it's just happening in all missions being it SP or MP after sometimes 5 minutes or after a few hours

it seems though as it is happening faster when you move around a lot, try running or driving over big parts over the map

i am testing something right now, i exchanged a ram stick since suddenly my other games crashed as well frequently, i don't have crashes in singleplayer anymore, but multiplayer crashes persist

Please provide again the rpt and dump files after you encounter a MP crash.
Are you playing custom maps/mods? Are you getting crashes also on official Arma 3 MP missions?

literally can't get the game to crash anymore since my last post^^

seems to be resolved, great work

Since this is not Arma 3 related issue, closing.
