Gentlemen I think I solved my problem. I installed the latest update of the beta and also updated my NVidia drivers (there was an update) and Arma 3 kept bugging. I had another game that was bugging very bad as well. Some others games like Arma 2, I could play with them for a while but they would eventually crash.
There was a bios update and I knew I would loose my overclocking (I have an I7 3770k that I overclocked to 4.6). Upon flashing the bios I didn't do any overclock manually I just let my Bios bump it to 4.2. I tried Arma 3 and absolutely no problems at all playing great on Ultra settings.
I guess I do not know how to overclock properly and even if I could get good result and I tested it for stability at 4.6 it was not done properly.
I just want to let people know that I'm still experiencing constant crashes despite the latest update. I really can't do anything with the Alpha anymore. It's not even fun.
Ok so like I said in my previous message I'm now able to start the game without any issue but it crashes all the time after a few minutes. Because this thread is still on status need more info I will use it.
I decided to delete everything: game from steam, my document arma 3 folder and my AppData\Local\Arma 3 Alpha\ to restart with a fresh install.
I created a scenario with just me as a diver a chopper, I flew from the airport to the radar station landed at the station and just fire a shot at the building and the game crashed:
Below is the error and I also included the Appdata as requested

Ok, so I used the -nobenchmark and Arma3 starts fine but crashes just after a few minute. It is not nvwgf2um.dll that is in cause with the error anymore.
I had the latest Nvidia drivers but reinstalled them just in case but it didn't do any difference the game still crashes after a few minute of game play (mission editor: just me swimming around or flying a chopper around).
I would consider this issue solved by the -nobenchmark because the game start but I can't enjoy it and there is bug somewhere so I will certainly have to create a new ticket.
About sending dxdiag and file I don't mind doing it but how do I do it because my rar file compressed to the max is 18k and the file limit size is 2k!!?
Didn't work unfortunately. Still exactly the same error by deleting the entire Arma3Alpha folder in my document. Arma regenerated the folder with just the arma3alpha.cfg and a profile.
But the game didn't start.
I agree with the principle though I went in real life to those islands and the water is super clear.
But I think a slider in the weather parameters to increase or decrease water clearness would be great. Like fog a little bit.
