Game crashes with either arma3 stopped responding or the display driver stops working, crashing the game in the process.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Well, last night i didn't have any problem with the game. I log on today and realize that I cant load in any missions without getting a crash. I attempt it a few times until the game finally lets me see the desktop again and i see a popup bubble saying the display driver crashed. I ask somebody in my clan about it and he says some of the obvious stuff (dump drivers, delete config files,download new drivers,etc). I do that, then it makes the problem worse. Now I can't even click a button on the main menu without either arma3 stopped responding or the display driver crashing, giving me one of 3 error messages:

DX11 error: buffer Map failed DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_REMOVED



I also get a error ingame that possibly shouldn't be there...

Seems that it could be related to something thats being done to base classes for the GUI in the .rpt log.

Game Crash
Steps To Reproduce

Seems it only happens once a certain amount of variables are met. May not be able to reproduce it exactly on the first try since your systems are different than mine.

1.Open the game

2.Try starting a mission (editor (single guy on map or not),single player, MP, doesn't matter which).

3.Watch the game lock up when the mission loads.

It appears after a full game reinstall the problem has disappeared. Maybe that error i was getting ingame before the crash was related to something in one of the config files that got corrupted or something.

Ok, thank you for info.
