After starting the game it crashes
Closed, ResolvedPublic


This problem started when i re downloaded arma 3 the original problem was my game would crash after a few hours of playing.

but now it wont even start i hit play on steam and the logo comes up and the game starts i see the 1st start up logo and then my mouse pops up in the middle of my screen then i have to hit ctrl+alt+delete just to get back on desktop to see the error "game has stopped working"

Side note: Now when i click on the exe. in the arma folder i can get to the menu and maybe log into a multiplayer and play for a few hours before another crash hits me will update when it happens again.

We need dxdiag and files from this folder for solve your problem. C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\Arma 3\
Can you upload somewhere in winrar package please?
When package will be smaller than 2,097k, so you can attach here. When package will be bigger, please use some free sharing service and post link here. Thank you.

what files do you need from the arma 3 folder?

i got the Dxdiag but the rest of the files in the arma 3 folder come up 89mb

Please read again what astaroth posted and upload your DXDiag at least.

Nothing helpful in crashdumps. Can you pleas try switch to development version on Steam?

When you want try, so you can activate dev version on Steam.
Right click on Arma III in your Steam Library>Properties>Betas>development build
This version may not stable and it can contain more bugs, than Stable Arma 3 version.

Let me know, if problem still persists. Thank you.

after switching the crash still happens ive tried reinstalling and run in window mode and i am able to reach the menu but after 2-3 minutes it crashes

Can you please upload somewhere crashdumps from main menu? Thank you.

Status update

For some reason it has joined its farther arma 2 with its randomness

I can start the game and it will crash and after 10-30 times i start it up it will work eventually...

But when i have steam community enabled it disables my keyboard.

ITs bin months you have released 2 new updates Why the hell is ole.32 keep crashing.. its only with this game and this game only what did you add that needs ole.32.. it is really pissing me off.

Arma 1 works fine.
Arma 2 works fine.
Arma 3 dose not work.

I dont know what else to do this is really pissing me off to a point i want my money back.

Randomness sounds like memory gone bad to me. Run memtest86 or something (download the iso, burn it to a CD and boot from it).

Also do a chkdsk /f C: and reboot your machine after you tell it to check on next restart, to make sure you don't have any filesystem errors.

If that's all without fault try running Windows 7 system check to check for faulty system files: sfc /scannow (make sure you run cmd as Administrator).
