Game crashes constantly upon explosion sounds since 4/15 patch
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Since the 4/15 patch, my client has been crashing constantly yet randomly when hand grenades or M203 grenades explode. The crash may happen within a few moments, or it may take 45 minutes. It seems to happen when several explosions take place in rapid succession. This is happening in both the Alpha and Dev branches since the 4/15 patch. I stress that, prior to 4/15, this was not happening to me; my game was stable. {F18969}

I need .bidmp and .mdmp files too. Minidump has been generated into the file C:\Users\Donnie\AppData\Local\Arma 3 Alpha\arma3_2013-04-18_05-24-06.mdmp

Thank you.

I've uploaded the .bidmp and .mdmp files in a .7z archive to RapidShare; the archive was too large to upload here at Thanks again for your help!

I can't download it from rapidshare, because:
Download not available
The download for this file has not been enabled. Only the user who uploaded it, can enable the download option.

Can you enable it please? Thank you.

You should be able to download the file now, as I've placed it in a public folder. Apologies, I've never used RapidShare before. The link is, and I've tested it to ensure it can be downloaded beyond my account.

Now is:
Download not available
File not found.

For some reason, the comma at the end of the line had been added to the download URL. works. I just tested it, sans comma. Apologies!

An update on this issue: I finally tracked down what was causing this crash: A custom grenade model I was using had no geometry LOD. Hence, whenever the grenade was thrown, the game would crash. Nasty thing to track down, as there's no error in the rpt file to tell why the game crashed, but what tipped me off was reading on the official BI forums about how another user's game was crashing whenever he was shot while wielding a custom weapon. His issue was tracked to the fact that his weapon had no geometry LOD. So I combed through all my models, and sure enough, the offending grenade had no geometry LOD. I resolved that issue and have had NO crashes since.

Custom grenade model problem.
