Game Freeze Crashing - 0.77.109860
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Devbranch update 0.77.109860
Experiencing Freeze-crash shortly after mission start or editor preview.
Game freezes and I must turn off the machine.
I have had 4 of the same crashes in the last half hour, one of which displayed a BSOD.


Legacy ID
Unable To Duplicate
Game Crash
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Start the Editor or mission (In my case Jesters Altis Showcase)
  2. Insert a Rifleman as Player
  3. Click on the Preview button.
  4. Shoot from the main weapon and observe there is no sound effect.
Additional Information

I am running a fairly old system, so there is a possibility that it is hardware related. Up until this point I don't remember having a freeze crash so consistently on starting ARMA.

I will carry on testing for any.

.bidmp and .mdmp files were not created? These files should be created with .rpt file after every crash.

Strangely no, they didn't appear in my dump folder.

So I have played for the last few hours with no crash. Tested with the same missions and editor situations. The only change I made was reducing the view distance from est 4600 to 2100. Not sure which part of my hardware the view distance draws most, but usually bsods are down to low/faulty RAM.

No details yet to give people, but on DEV version 0.77.109860 over to last two days my PC just Freezes/Crashes the only way to get back is to reboot my PC, not great help I know but I think somethings not right.....

Haven't had a repeat issue, therefore probably a hardware issue; closing.
