Game Crash
Steps To Reproduce

Play game for about an hour. Eventually I crash. I reported this in a previous ticket that was closed after the latest patch.

Additional Information

zipped dumps:

3 Separate rpts with dumps from the past few days:

Another report/dump from last night. This crash occurred as another player approached a disabled vehicle that had a mine near it. I had just thrown a grenade (not near them, and probably coincidental) but I'm betting the mine blew the player up and had some effect on the vehicle as well, causing the crash.

Exactly the same error for me. It always happens after approximately 1 hour of gameplay. After a restart, the game crashes after only 5-15 minutes. I never experienced crashes to desktop prior, even during the alpha.
Attached my crashdump and dxdiag.

Lately I have been noticing (playing Sa Matra Wasteland Altis v8 mission) that I'm getting freezes where the audio and VON still seem to work, but graphics are frozen. Sometimes it lasts a second or two until everything comes back fine, other times it freezes and once I alt-tab I see that ARMA 3 has crashed. I didn't take exact notes so these crashes may not be attributable to PhysX3_x86 module like the others, but I'll try note that next time and provide specific dumps for those instances in a separate bug report.

Please let me emphasize that i never experienced this crashes before the hotfix. Whatever the hotfix fixed, it is probably the cause for all the crashes reported herein.

This bug never occured to me again after release of v1.04. That solved it at least for me.
