Thank you for reporting the issue.
We need crash dump files from this folder for solve your problem.

This should complete the only crash dumps since 7-15

Thank you for the files, they have been sent for analysis.

here are additional crashs from today

i uploaded more files a week later with same issues

Here is the issues again dated 7-30-2014

I am having this same issue. I posted about this as a response to another thread. Please check out my suggestions I gave there and let me know if anything helps your issue.

few weeks of the same issue with no resolution is getting ridiculous. I have tried numerous fixes. reinstall, clean harddrive, reinstall vid card, ect. there are other people having this same issue.

Here are more rpt files.

Is there any update on this crashing. Its getting more and more persistent

Still having the same issues. Can someone please respond to this issue? Here are some more rpt files


could you please upload your DX-Diag file? It would help us a lot.
You can find how to get your file here:

Also, does it happen when specific map is loaded or with every map?
Thank you for the info.

And the next question: Did you try it on DEV version?

Yes I have tried on both builds with the same issue.

interesting.. well I've added into DEV. 126954 some additional logs which may help us to manage your problem, please try next DEV version(will be distributed tomorrow) and post some fresh RPTs okay?

And I know that you will hate me, but I have to ask you about your PC system stability in general. I see in logs, that you use FullHD resolution, can you try to downgrade it rapidly(I'm trying to eliminate HW overheat possibility)? Does your problem appear even in SP missions? Have you tried it within disabled Firewall?

sorry for bothering, but the fact is that we have currently no clues how to solve the situation.. unless you're Czech republic resident and will take a trip to our company with your whole PC in bag ;-)

I will try that in the am tomorrow.

I would like to know what you mean about fullhd? Everything on my PC is stock the way I built it 2 years ago. I havent changed anything since I started playing Arma 3 this year. This only started when I posted this report.

How would I downgrade?

Single player I can play for hours without an issue. The issue is only on MP servers. Doesnt matter which one.

If you wanna pay airfare Ill bring my PC to ya! :)

by fullHD I mean that you probably play A3 in 1920x1080p screen resolution which can cause some performance penalty on slow computers. That's why I asked you to downgrade that resolution down let's say to 1280x720p. I'm only trying to be sure that your problems are not based on overheated hardware

jls1cm: any progress on this issue? We're still waiting for some new RPTs from the latest DEV distribution. Or it seems to be fine now?

I havent been able to play this game lately. The servers that I play on have been inactive. I will post update on this. Since it only happens on the Hostile Take over servers.

bidmp + mdmp were not included in this crash. Even with the settings lowered.

I have applied my patch with extended debug logs into DEV branch only, so please can you switch your A3 version into Development branch? And for more, can you try it on some 'official' maps like Escape from Altis, etc.?

is this issue still active?

Yes, but gave up trying to play the game until a new update comes out

does it still happen?

jls1cm added a comment.Mar 7 2015, 8:22 AM

Yes, I recently just bought a new PC and this issue still persists.

jls1cm added a comment.Mar 7 2015, 8:31 AM

Here is the newest results from the crash log

New PC specs:

GeForce GTX 980
I7-4790k @4.0

jls1cm added a comment.Mar 7 2015, 5:35 PM

Any update? I would really like to play without having this constant crashing.
