A3 DX Steam CTD

Recommended Posts

Will edit for exact details when I get home

I purchased supporter last night and tried to demo it this morning

When I launch a3 steam says updating/installing dx11 , then a3 logo pops up and does its thing , after that it tries to launch the game but I get a CTD with DX error

Go to MS and install DX Web updater, or even get the full Redist.

Cool thank you for the tip.

I was browsing the Arma 3 folder and found a DirectX subfolder.

-I ran the installer within the folder and it did a patch

-Then I did a check game integrity on steam, I had to DL a file that was bad

-I launched it again and steam did the DirectX install again and the game launched properly. ^^

kovacs, I'm going to assume you're set up like 99% of average users..

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\

From there, go to ArmA3 then look for directx or similar. In there is an executable that will update your directx. I just did mine, so thank you Carzilla. It's been a long time since the redist decided I was over-due for an update.
