im testing Altis Life ca 5 minutes on Server. The Game is Active over 3 Hour.

I played for a few days perfectly fine, then all of a sudden it started occurring. The game crashes whenever I try to load into a server, either on the loading screen, or just when I get into the lobby. In the packaged file, is my DxDiag, my .rpt file from the most recent occurrence along with steams dump file, I've named the folders according to where they were located on my drive. These are the only files that appeared after the crash, I did not receive any dump files located in the appdata arma 3 folder. I am using V1.32.127.785. I don't have a killer network card. I've tried verifying cache, deleting all the Arma3 Files along with directory and files it made as well as Registry Keys, and then reinstalling again to no avail.

**Accidently didn't upload the steam dmp file. new file with be named with new

**NEWEST EDIT: I've reformatted my machine and I am now able to connect to multiplayer lobbies without crashing, I will update with any information if the crashes occur again.

I've encountered another crash, this has been most common on the same set of wasteland servers, but that is a majority of what I play. This particular time I was typing when it crashed, nothing weird happened in game though. RPT & MDMP & BIDMP are all in rar file named "doofyrob newest - different problem"

Uploaded 2 files. One contains the original crash that happened on a King of the Hill server. The permacrash is when I try to rejoin back the server, got past the team selection screen and then it crash at 90% of the load. Checked integrity using the tools given by Steam but that didn't solved the issue.

Uploaded 1 Dump in a file Bumgie.7z.

This was a crash that caused 10 people out of 40 to crash to desktop.

The 10 people were all on the same side. Other sides were not effected.

Server has many mods running, but we cant say what is causing the crash. We have previously encountered crashes that only affect one side, but I cannot provide the dump files for them.

Added crashdumps ARMA_3_new.7z

See my open ticket for more details:

Some more Client crashes.

These were from extensive 2 hour test from multiple users and mods.
The issue was narrowed down to RHS and AIA TP.

Crashes were usually accompanied by the server crash but not always.

Warning. Contains very many dumps!!! =)

Arma 3 (release candidate) 1.36.128482+ stress-test MP (MultiPlayer)

Running the release candidate, it crashes after joining a server after 1-2mins.

When I join this server:
1 servers up (up to 120 players each) - NORTH AMERICA
KOTH (x2 XP) 3rd person

Uploaded about 4 crashes i had the last 2 days.
Playing team king of the hill on different servers.
Doesn't really matter what i do ingame.
one crash hit me 20mins after joining, just when i wanted to fly my hummingbird.
last crash was ~30mins after joining, while i was running around to a street.

these crashes were introduced by a patch, because i was playing for weeks without problems!

Added new client crash dumps. Hope you can make sense of it!

The crashes come after changing missions. Usually around the 3rd or 4th mission.
