Crash is caused by broken infinite terrain in engine. See:

Setting enableTerrainSynth = 0; makes the OA terrains no longer crash.

It's been almost over a year now, are you ever going to fix this or what?

Periodic reminder this hasn't been fixed yet.

it hasnt been fixed yet.

Well, it only happens to OA and arma2 maps right?

Yes it is limited to A2/OA maps only.
Which is the vast majority of maps the community happens to like and are actually small enough not to force you to 10 FPS while online.
Also after all the work the community has done over the years it's absurd to just throw it away.
Backwards compatibility is one of the main issues modders have with this game because every 4-5 years we have to start over and trash everything we did before because the engine doesn't support them anymore.
