Game crashes about five minutes in, unknown cause. Tried many things with limited results.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Arma 3 crashes every five minutes or so. I've gone to my steam launch options and put -nobenchmark -skipintro -nosplash -cpuCount=6 -world=empty -noPause

Unfortunately this does nothing. I've physically gone through most of the arma 3 files looking for a solution. One thing that seemed to fix it was deleting the MPmissioncache, but even that had limited results. It seemed to work for awhile, but now if I forget to delete the cache before I start the game, it crashes on startup. If I do delete the cache, the game will play for ten minutes before crashing.

Whats odd is that arma 3 ran quite well on my PC without crashing for some time, but it started crashing like this in sometime in March.
PC Specs
Motherboard:ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0
RAM: 8gigs
CPU: AMD FX-6300 Six-Core Processor 3.50 GHz
GPU: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 650 Ti

I have also tried lowering the graphics, but to no avail. The game at the lowest graphics will still crash. Tried turning of V-sync, but still no help.

Another bit of interest was for a couple weeks my internet was down from the weather. I played the arma 3 campaign offline, and it did not crash.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just a dumb question: How much space is left on your hard drive(s)?
If they're all good, you might upload the RPT and crash dump files.

294Gb out of 1Tb
Also, where are the RPT files?

Thank you for reporting the issue.
We need crash dump files from this folder for solve your problem.
C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\Arma 3\
Can you upload somewhere in winrar package please?
When package will be smaller than 5000k, you can attach it here. When package is bigger, please use some free sharing service and post link here.

How to find correct crashdump file:
Try to make the crash happen
Look into crashdump folder
Upload crashdump with latest date in name (crashdump is rpt + bidmp + mdmp file with same name). Please try to provide as many crashdumps as possible, it helps us investigating the problem in a big way.

Thank you.

Absolutely, thanks for the help. Unfortunately I was called out of town for a short time so I will have the files uploaded on Monday. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Alright, I uploaded the rpt files. Thanks for your help.

From the rpt it is clear that you are running couple of mods. Would it be possible to try it on unmoded version of game?
