After Death: Black Screen
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Everytime I get killed in a scenario (in this case "Whole Lotta Stratis") I get a black screen, and all I can see in it is the Arma 3 Alpha logo in the bottom right. The game itself didn't crash - it just goes all black.

This problem did not happen until two days ago, and it happens all the time now, without exeption. I haven't installed any mods recently - all I did was delete a couple of scenarios (with the exception of Whole Lotta Stratis of course) and nothing else.

I deinstalled and reinstalled Arma 3 on steam at least 2 times already. and it's still happening.

i have a screenshot, how can i send it in at this point?

Do you have this issue in SP showcases or only in this user mission?

You can attach screenshot or upload it to some free shraring service.

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 2,097k, so you can attach here. Thank you.


  1. When i click "upload the file" the file i selected doesn't upload...

The error i described above

  1. I seemed to have temporarily solved the problem, how? I restarted the "Whole Lotta Stratis" Scenario and now the black screen doesn't show up anymore. So I think, that the problem lies within the saves. The scenario has an infinite save optiona and after a while you have to overwrite your saves. So my only conclusion is that the problem might lie within the save function.
  2. The showcases don't show this problem. But after i played the Scenario mentioned above the showcases lost their savegame, so i couldnt resume the missions but had to start them again.


  1. the file i wanna upload is winrar and is 10-12KB in size (has DXDiag.txt and screenshot)
