ArmA 3 has stopped working....

Recommended Posts

Hi,

i have been playing the game for about 3 days now frequently, and have not encountered crash once, but after i joined some multiplayer server today, the game crashed on mission loading to desktop with "stopped working" report window, and ever since that crash, my game crashes extremely frequently with same error :(

I have found if I delete the Saved folder in the C:\Users\[username]\Documents\Arma 3 Alpha\ folder, that seems to get me back up and running. I've had to do this a few times now.

Ah thanks! So it is probably some config corruption. Will give it a try... thanks again :)

It appears mission cache data can cause more and more instability as time goes on.

user/appdata/local/arma3/mpmissioncache

My theory is that some missions are either causing bugs or multiple missions stored in the folder are trying to be used at the same time when in a multiplayer game. I imagine that if two mission files were used at the same time in a mission.

My stability got worse and worse. The first day I played no crashes, the next day maybe a crash every 20 minutes, after that every ten minutes. Deleted my cache then played fine for a while till I believe a certain deathmatch server gave me a bugged file. Deleted cache again and have gone about 2 hours with complete stability.

Some mission files are just buggy, if a server crashes you frequently delete the mission cache files. You can try that server again and if it keeps happening, delete your cache and avoid that server mission.

Go into your AppData folder -its a hidden folder within your Documents folder, and click on Local/ Arma 3/.rpt file. The .rpt file is where your crash information is stored. You can post it here but be sure to put it in spoiler tags as they are usually pretty long. Other courses of action are to have Steam verify integrity of files as well as full uninstall/reinstall.

Yes, try running Steam as Admin and then opening the game from within Steam -has it ever worked for you?
