Tried up upload mini dump, but wont allow me

It will if you compress all the files with 7z and upload again, as long as the total file length does not exceed 5MB.

I'm having almost the same problem but sometimes I can play for 30 minutes or so on multiplayer. Getting the same error message at the end of arma3.rpt:
ErrorMessage: DX11 error : buffer Map failed : DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_REMOVED

I also had that error once as well. Now i cant even get passed the first click to open SP options

Also verified game cache in steam as well

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.

Steam just updated itself. Out of the blue. Played arma3 all day anf no.issues. not sure if this was the issues but no longer crashing. Did anyone else get the steam update?

Please remove this issue, no longer occurs- Thanks BI
