Unfortunately Adam, if we individually roll back, we will be unable to play on any multiplayer servers. If this bug cannot fix fixed soon (like yesterday) then maybe rolling everyone back to 1.44 needs to be considered until you can fix the issue. I'm already on my 3rd day of being unable to play the game I love.
I agree Mickyman, if they can't find the error, they need to roll the update back. Most of the people I've talked to that have nVidia cards are having crashing since the last patch. That probably a majority of the Arma 3 players who now cannot play at all.
I really doubt that "multiple games" crashed every 5-15 minutes. If they did, they were probably either very quickly patched or ended up dying. There is nothing wrong with anything on my machine and there was nothing wrong with the game (as far as the crashes) until the last patch. It is clear that the developers messed something up with the last patch and that is causing issues for a lot of people.
Also, it appears you have copied and pasted those "steps" from some REALLY old post as 314.07 hasn't been the latest nVidia driver since the beginning of 2013. I almost find it insulting to be told to lower my game resolution below the native resolution when there is nothing wrong with anything on my end. This is a problem caused by a change that was made by the developers and it is something that will have to be fixed by those same developers.
I can also confirm this is not an issue related to GPU load as I play the King of the Hill mod, which (due to poor coding) uses very little GPU power. I am sorry if I sound angry but suddenly a game that I put multiple hours a day into suddenly is unplayable for me and there is nothing I can personally do to fix it. Instead I have to wait for the developers to find a solution. I really don't know how this patch got through testing. Everyone I've talked to who has a nVidia graphics card is now having issues with crashing that makes the game unplayable.
Thank you Adam, at least I know I'm getting the same error as everyone else. Is there any additional information I can provide to help you?
Apparently my report was closed and listed as a duplicate of this one even though I don't even get an error message, just a black screen that requires me to kill the process via task manager. Should I reupload my DX-Diag and crash reports from my original report to here?
