I need .mdpm and .bidmp files too. They are files with same date and time in name like these .rpt files. Thank you.

Here are some fresh ones, I have hundreds. The game is currently unplayable and I get between 2 and 20 minutes of uninterrupted gameplay. Hardly a full release chaps.

Had to compress mini dump file.

Can you please upload more crashdumps somewhere and post link here? Thank you.

Played single player for about five hours yesterday and no crash to desktop. Not sure if lucky or not. Crash still occurs in multiplayer without fail.

Have tried:
+ Disabling CUDA in Nvidia control panel - Seemed to work at first, CTD after 3 hours.

+ Lowering and increasing video settings - No effect.

+ Disabling Post Processing - No effect.

+ Playing on second computer - Was easily able to reproduce.

After some research I noted that people have been having this issue since march? Shame there was no Beta testing stage... Oh wait.

Will keep the crash dumps coming but you really need to work on this with NVidia.

Here is a forum thread featuring a response from the lead developer of Arma 3, posted in March:- http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?150907-PhysX3_x86-dll-Crash&highlight=PhysX3_x86.dll

Bump. There is plenty of information.

Did you ever get it fixed? I swear the Arma Devs don't care..
