Crash / Zoom on start up
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When I launch ArmA 3, about 70% of the time it looks like it has zoomed in about 5x. I cant see any options or much besides color. It may have to do with resolution because when I exit Windows tells me I was not using the right resolution.

When I first launch it shows the small ArmA 3 loading addons visual. After that its black, then a few seconds later its white. When I Shift-Tab for the Steam overlay it is similar plus i see a cursor that is very big.

Steps To Reproduce

To reproduce I just need to launch again, there is a good chance it will happen.

Additional Information

I thought it may have to do with the known graphics issue so I tried using that "-nobenchmark" thing, it didn't help.

To solve your problem we need dxdiag and files from this folder: "C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\Arma 3 Alpha\"

Can you pack the files in winrar and upload it somewhere please?
When the *.rar will be smaller than 2.097k, you can attach it here. Thank you.

I have a similar problem with games in general, I have to detect my monitor in windows display settings . Sometimes it's not recognized (windows 7 64bit Bug)
I am uploading a screenshot to help you. I have to do this a lot, after boot up and after the monitor sleeps. It gets confused on what resolutions your monitor can display.

See if that fixes it.
