Random crashes on dedicated server
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Our server started crashing very often after update, not sure why, but it's very random. Some mission are fine and no crash at all and some missions keeps crashing even in lobby, sometimes ingame, it's very random. I tried everything, reinstalling server, turn off the mods, nothing helped. I need really help on this, because I have no idea what is causing this crashes. {F23897} {F23898} {F23899} {F23900} {F23901} {F23902}

thank you for the response. However, we cannot determine what exactly caused your game to crash. It is necessary you tried to run your Arma server without any mods. If the crashes still happen then, please send another crashdumps.

If the crashes stop (on Arma without mods), please try to activate mods one by one until you find out which one causes the crashes.

Mods are not official content from Bohemia Interactive and it is very likely that the CTDs you are experiencing are caused by collisions between two or more mods.

Please let us know, thank you.


thank you for answer, I just tested server without any mod and got crash again, with the same error message. Crashdumbs are in crashvanilla.rar hope it helps somehow.

I also included Patrol Ops mission where that crash happen

So I left vanilla server without any mods for some hours and got multiple crashes on vanilla Patrol Ops. It's included in crashvanilla2.rar

So I have no idea what is causing this problem on our server and I really need help on this.

Same problem here.
Version 1.18 Vanilla and only crashes on dedicated server.
If I host a mission on the client, no problems.

I tested "Patrol Operations 3.1" with some friends and "Blitzkrieg A3 RandomMode".

thank you for the crashdumps (they were many), our programming department will look into it.

Thanks, I know. I was just wondering if it's know what causes this crashes, because it's still happening on our server and I don't know what to do with it.

Does the game server is scripted to connect to any external, third-party API's?
How many clients were connected during the crash?
Are you able to test the mission on different machine?

I don't know about any third-party API's and there were actually no clients connected when these crashes happend. I tried the mission on my PC multiple times and nothing like this happen. It was very random crash on multiple missions, but after last hotfix it seems to be gone, I have no idea what was causing, neither our server provider.
