Arma 3 stops responding after initial launch. All i see is the splash and then
a black screen. I have attempted a reinstall since this issue and still no fix.
I have cleared all my cached files and removed all player profiles. Yet to no
avail it wont work. Any assistance is appreciated.
I have attached my rpt and mdmp files for reference. {F25390} {F25391} {F25392}

Checked system Event Viewer and found this error:

As well as this was the launch parameters that i would normally run with arma 3 before this problem happened:

-enableHT -maxMem=3072 -maxVram=2048 -noBenchmark -noLogs -noPause -noSplash -world=empty

it seems that either some of your drivers or DirectX might be corrupted, could you please reinstall these?

I have the same issue. I also read about more people with te same issue. This all happend after the last update, never had any crash issues before that. Both dev as stable version with the same result.

edit: I just reinstalled DirctX from the arma folder and still get a complete freeze after the intro black screen.

I ran the arma diagnose (see attachment) and only see some arrors of the dlc.

Edit2: I switched to Arma3Legacy136 and that is working fine.

I have the same issue as well, after the 1.38 update. Sometimes it'll work if i just run arma3.exe from the ARMA 3 folder without any startup params.

please create a new ticket for your problem, it does not look like it's connected to this one. Thank you.
