Just happened once

Has not happened since then, but I have not played that much anyway...Might be related to 0022428, previous crasches that I experienced.
Well, start uploading mini dumps from Windows so that a developer could look into the reason why Windows crash. It could be a driver issue or hardware that is triggered by something Arma does. As you know, an application should not be able to crash Windows no matter what it does, unless there is a problem with the driver or hardware. Good thing here is that I guess Arma developers are in contact with Intel, Nvidia and AMD and should be able to find a solution if there is a common issue.
Also make sure that your PC is not overheating.
Same problem again. Arma froze and dumped when clicking "close". New crash dump files uploaded.
Also, nvidia drivers updated to latest after the first dump and before todays crash.
So the Workshop scenario I have played for the past week just got updated yesterday. And my saved game is gone... It is actually SaOKs scenario [DYN/SP] Whole Lotta Altis. I assume most people play this for weeks so that is why they report that scenario.
If you look at the related issue you can see that the devs responded with why they dont allow a save between versions/updates of a scenario. It means that if you get an update of either the scenario or Arma version you will not be able to resume.
However, this is something the scenario developer can fix by using a custom save function. Look at the mission [Dyn/SP]Whole Lotta Altis on the workshop and test the function there. (made by Saok who reported the other issue). Even if the scenario or Arma is updated you can still, in this scenario, resume the mission.
Too bad, with regards to the devs response there is only one way this issue can go now.. closed.. :( I would hope different though because of all the missions with long lasting battles etc.
I guess it is the Meta folder that is corrupt. Restore it from a backup and hopefully it will be fixed. If that does not help maybe you could verify Arma in Steam so that all files are OK.
Edit: Looks like this might be related to ticket 0016524 as they mention a problem with save game as described in this ticket. As I cant reproduce the error anymore, could you test again and see if the new DEV-build also fix the Save game error?
So the problem is back for me and I can confirm this is due to an update of the Workshop Scenario. As soon it is updated the saved game disappears...
I guess we need feedback from a developer or similar who knows how it works and what files are touched during save. Perhaps uploading the working save game could help out?
So it seems there is a trigger somewhere that show if a mission is saved or not. Could it be under the META folder in C:\Users\You\Documents\Arma 3\Saved\steam ? If you backup that folder and replace it after the successful workaround, are you still able to resume?
Same here. NO mods.
Edit: Maybe change from "Performance" to "Steam workshop" as this might be related to similar bugs.
I am fully aware that savegames are incompatible between different versions. The problem WAS that when you saved the game, you could load the saved game if you did not exit Arma. If you restart Arma and select the mission, resume was missing.
However, since the game was updated yesterday (?) I can't reproduce the error. It might have been fixed but I guess someone else needs to confirm.
Had the same issue but I suspect the problem was that I placed the charge before I am told to. It did not matter if my squad leader was killed or not. I had to restart four times before I could finish the mission. Loading a saved game did not work for me. What I also see is that the guy who help the downed pilot is the person who is stuck and does not move when asked to move to a safe distance.
Couldnt this be closed as they are cached now?
