When I join a server the game freezes
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Like all the version of Arma 3 Alpha I can't join most of servers.
I don't know why.
When I have the list of servers I click on one and I join it and the game freezes.
I should exit the processus of the game to exit it.
If you have any ideas it would be very nice. Thank you.

I recommend first analyzing the servers
check the "Ping" and then check "number of players"
Thats how i play on servers, and i dont have problems, only problem i have on servers is when i go into a random server with foriegn speaking users, after a few minutes i crash, because of distance or connection problem i think/

The game never crashed.
It just freezes when I click on the button "JOIN" after I chose the server.
The game freezes at the page of loading on the server. I enclose you a picture when the game freezes.
When I have the luck to join a server I don't know how I can play without freezes or crashes.

It's not a problem with my hardware:
CPU: Intel Core i7-3610QM
VGA: Nvidia GeForce GTX 675M / 2 GB GDDR5

Maybye the game because it's an Alpha.

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.

Thank you for your answer.
I enclose you the winrar package requested.
I hope you find something to fix my problem.

Can you try connect to server with Escape from Stratis or Headhunters coop mod?
If you will have same issue, so please clean folder with rpt files and crashdumps( move or delete all .bimp , .rpt, .midmp files). Try connect again and send me again all files from this folder. Thank you.

Try create new profile and connect to servers with new profile, maybe it can help.

I try to connect on a server after I deleted files .bimp , .rpt , .midmp but I have the same issue.
I try to connect on a server with an other profile but I have the same issue.
Then I enclose you the new archive.

I have new information on my problem.
I can join dedicated servers but servers created by other (private servers) I can't join.

  1. When I create a server and when my friends join me my game freezes.
  2. When I join them on their private server the game freezes too.
  3. And when I join a server created by other without my friends it's the same case.

I test my connexion and I open my port, it's not resolve the problem.
I don't know what kind of problem it is.

Can you try change your display settings? Try set overall quality to low and try with low settings and then with better settings? Thank you.

I tested to change my overall quality in low quality and in high quality
I have the same problem when I join a private server and I always have no problems with dedicated servers.
I tried to enclose a new version of C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\Arma 3 Alpha\ but I had an error when I click on upload. I try tomorrow to send this archive.

When archive will not possible attach(too big size), so can you please upload to some free sharing service? Thank you.
