Arma 3 crash upon starting the game (Intel accelerated media device has crashed)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Upon starting the game, the normal loading icon shows up, it loads, then it disappears. This is where the problems happen, as the screen goes black for a few seconds, goes back to the desktop, and a message pops up that the "Intel accelerated media device" has crashed. {F17824} {F17825}


Legacy ID
Won't Fix
Game Crash
Steps To Reproduce

Start the game normally from Steam, wait until the arma 3 loading menu comes up and then finishes.

Additional Information

I have tried adding some Steam settings in to fix it, and it does nothing. I checked in my C:\Users\Avery\AppData\Local\Arma 3 Alpha folder, and all I have in there is arma3.rpt. Not sure if this is the only thing that's supposed to be in there. I have it uploaded in case it is needed.

you're trying to run the game with a onboard graphics card, are you *^%&* kidding me?

I understand it's stupid, but I just want to point out the crash, and get the fix for both me and other users. I have another computer that can run it just fine.

If the hardware doesn't meet the required minimum specifications for the product, why should they invest time fixing it?

Again, just pointing out the bug, guys.

Even if it did run you would only be getting about 5fps, lol.

It's not a bug if it wont boot on hardware too weak to boot it. It's not a bug either if it doesn't run on a windows 95 machine with directx 6.

It not that old a machine, btw. i5 @2.53 ghz quad. The graphics card just isn't good. But thanks guys for being jerks about it. Coulda just said it wouldn't work instead of insulting both me and my stuff.

Ok, I have declared this a dead thread, as I assume there will be no fix. Or should I say, the game requirements won't be lowered for us poor people... ha.

Your graphic card does not minimum requirements.
