I totally despise PhysX and it's locked manufacture standards.

I have removed (again) physx drivers again and install them again and it seems it fixed the issue. Gotta test it more.

Same here, nvidia MSI 660 ti PE. Had it on my old computer, and got a brand new computer today too, with all parts new and different except for the video card. Have tried doing the PhysX over both GPU and CPU, both have random crashes. Usually when I have enemy in scope and they drop to the floor, but also just randomly without any apparent reason. Sometimes after 5 minutes, sometimes after an hour, although usually more frequent. Started for me since the beta.

Added RPT Files to issue

Unable to reproduce it by following certain steps, but it happens _every_ time I play multiplayer (havent played single player since beta, so not sure if it happens there as well)

to root: Do you have still this issue in beta build?

to others: Please create own report for crash, with crash description and attached crashdumps, thank you.

My crash RPT, MDMP & BIDMP files on this PhysX3_86.dll problem.

Added 4 crash reports ( from a game yesterday where Arma started crashing. Not running dev branch. Crashed 4 times within a matter of an hour or two. No rhyme or reason to the crashes, some happened quickly after starting the game, some after 30-45 minutes of play. In vehicle/helo, on the ground, looking through a scope.. cannot seem to reproduce it on demand.

Happens to me a lot.

The recent hotfix on Oct 2nd resolved these crashes for me.

Closing. Need new dumps for additional physx crashes.
