Game freezes on startup at the ArmA 3 logo after splash screen
New, WishlistPublic


Sometimes it freezes, sometimes it doesn't, I don't know why.

When the loading reaches the ArmA 3 logo after the splash screen, the game freezes and does not respond. 1 Thread works at 100% all the time and nothing else happens. Terminating the game with the task manager does not create dumps, and only an .rpt file is generated.

Attempting to restart it a couple of times eventually fixes it, however the number of restarts required is random.

This was not the result of an update, earlier on 1.08 it worked just fine.

I also started getting this issue today.

Win7 64 bit
Vanilla Arma - no mods.

Could running the latest BETA video drivers from Nvidia cause the issue?

331.93 - BETA

Very strange. The issue disappeared for me too, one day later.

maybe it had to do with the date + 64bit combo
