Are you sure you are not using 256 color mode or other compatibility setting and your computer meets minimum system requirements?

If you are sure please send us dxdiag and files from this folder: "C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\Arma 3 Alpha\" so we can look your issue.

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.

ok thanks sorry that i am late to reply
