So i wonder if any solutions has come up yet? :)// Nyedo

Got the exact same problem

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 5,000kb, you can attach it here. Thank you.

I noticed that when the game freezes for me, it is always when someone is logging in. game freezes i wait, then i use ctrl alt del and the message is there.

Sometimes crash on join/pressing "OK" can be solved by deleting the mission files from;

C:\Documents\Arma 3 Alpha - Other Profiles\ProfileName\Saved\mpmissions\

This happens to me as well, but only when I am removing items from vehicles.

The same problem for me, I think also it is some kind of relation to the server or maybe if it has a high amount of players.

It happens at completely random times for me, has nothing to do with server load or number of players

This was happening to me until I ran across a message about running the game as admin. People were posting some pretty crazy stuff, bu all I did was go to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\arma3.exe

Right click and select "Run as Admin"

I no longer experience crashes in multiplayer games.
Also, before I ran as admin, I never experienced problems in single player mode or in the editor - it only occured in multiplayer. (might help narrow down the problem for some)

Hope that helps someone!

Already running as Admin, makes no difference whatsoever.

same issue! also reported in private. What are your specs?

Same problem, deleting MpMission doesn't solve. Only crashes in MP at any point in time either at receiving data or while playing. Game just freezes and I have to ctrl-alt-delete to get back to windows.

Edit: Sorry, uploaded the wrong stuff on the first winrar.
