ARMA3.exe / PhysX3_x86.dll always CRASHES - fresh install Arma3 without any mod crashes extremely frequently
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I have just bought Arma3 today, installed it fresh. Stem and video drivers are all up to date. Earlier I played Arma2 over years on the very same PC config and that had crashes very rarely (after 12-36h game only), but this new Arma3 crashed at least 8-10 times during my first few hours game, so much that you cannot play the game or enjoy it AT ALL :( My PC is untouched, has no any tunning, no any overclocking and made only from the best brand components (Revodrive, Kingstone, Gigagbit MB and GBT VGA). I am very very disappointed now. I know how much you put into this game, but I also paid 50 EUR for having fun with my favorite game, so that please eliminate this serious bug urgently. All my video settings were left on default, actually I finally clicked on the auto detect button thinking it might help but no change with crashes. As far as I see it tends to crash in moments when something "big happens" in game, but last time it has crashed when I was simply sitting in a chopper as a passenger. SOmething around 3D I guess bec it says PhysX3_x86.dll stopped working on my 64bit Win8. {F22363} {F22364} {F22365}

Game Crash
Steps To Reproduce

Simply play over 10-20min in multiplayer. Single player seems more stable.

Same issue here:

Keep reporting these crashes and upload all the rpt and dumps you have!

Today balance by now: SEVEN PhysX3_x86.dll crashes in a row, each occured after 5-20min play. Onece it crashed after 2min after joning a server while I was simply standing in the base and I was turning to the right and left while changing the video settings (shadow settings).

I am just installing ARMA 2 (yes downgrading!) as the new 50 EUR Arma3 is not playable.

Since purchasing Arma3 yesterday night, I had 11 (eleven) PhysX3_x86.dll crashes. I am hoping that BIS is gonna correct this error with 1st priority in 24-48h.

Thank you for reporting, but this report is duplicate of
