Hello everybody. I just installed ArmA 3 two days ago and everything has run flawlessly on ultra/high settings but the problem comes in when I want to play multiplayer. The closest I got to playing a game was spawning into the map and then instant crash to desktop. Other than that the game either crashes when I am in the server lobby or I reverted back to the server list where eventually the game crashes like usual. I have installed the latest version of battleye and disabled my avast anti virus but nothing has changed.

What else should I try to do? This is very disappointing since I basically build my pc bc of my interest in ArmA 2 when I used to play CS on a macbook (yes I know a macbook)

Thank you in advance

Hey everyone, this is the first time i've posted something on here. Usually i just figure it out on my own but i'm really stumped this time. Since getting the 1.42 update my screen freezes when i get into a vehicle. It doesn't seem to have any particular trend just likes to crash mainly with the hunter and speedboat. Helicopter was fine until i went to land then it froze. Sometimes it does it right away but it usually happens after driving around for a bit. I tried verifying cache, defragging, disabling addons and still it gets jacked up. Also it doesn't show an error message. Just freezes and i have to do a hard reset. Since the 1.42 update, its been doing this in the editor. I tried it in multiplayer once and it seemed fine but i don't trust it because i haven't really gotten into playing multiplayer. Recently i got the MCC addon so i've been messing with the missions that you can generate. I havent tried it in campaign yet. My PC is new and i just updated my drivers cause i was getting a low memory error (something like that) and i downloaded AMD gaming evolved tool which optimized Arma 3 for me and put most of my settings to ultra. Thinking maybe ultra was too much i changed my settings from ultra to high to very high and it worked longer but still ended up crashing. I don't think its a settings problem tho because it works fine if i'm not in a vehicle. Please any pointers would be great as this problem is very annoying and limiting. I feel like its related to the 1.42 update because it happened after that. I'm really not the greatest techie so if its something obvious bare with me.

Is there a thread specific to the post Apex frame drops? I think it only happens to me on the Tanoa map, but I'm talking about the sudden drop from whatever FPS you normally have, to a slideshow frame rate of maybe 1-3 FPS. I've had it resolve itself once, resolve after restarting the mission once, and completely lock up the game to the point that I can't get to any other windows and have to log out of windows to get rid of it. I see it widely reported, but am still looking for a thread dedicated to the issue. Can someone point me to such a thread?

THanks,

-Doc

That sounds like the infamous 3 FPS bug Doc. If you google "Arma 3 3 FPS bug" lots of solutions come up, most of them dealing with the memory allocator or some other startup parameter.

Sometimes I like to think as I started the whole "earplugs" thing.

W0lle: The only advice I can give you is: Do not try to understand BI. You will not succeed and it only makes your brain go boom. I would even go so far and say that not even they understand their own actions :-D.

So i quit playing arma 3 for abo 4 months. I remember apex updated, and all these wonderful patches were here and everything was working great. So the other day 5/12 i booted it up, saw it was up to date, steam updated, hit play.

Originally it started with this > Click play, message pops up regarding ace 3.6.2 saying it is 32bit and i have 64 bit. i clicked switched to 32 bit started loading, got to logos, got to arma 3 logo, it crashes with "the instruction at 0x0000000001eff6f4 referenced memory at 0x0000000000000000. The memory could not be read". I reviewed my mods and realized i already had an ace version subscribed to in steam. That was the latest. It was updated to the latest version of ACE as of 5/16/2017. cool. so i remove the one that was ace 3.6.2. just so there was no clutter or confusion. Tried booting up. same error. So then went into parameter setting and click on "memory allocator (64-bit) jEMalloc allocator - 64-bit - (jemalloc_bi_x64)". restart. load. crash, same error.

retried startup then tried "intell tbb 4 allocator 64 bit (tbb4malloc_bi_x64)(default)" option. crash same error. and just for fun "windows allocator-system". restart. crash. I do have the latest update of steam and ace and arma 3. i use the arma 3 launcher. I ran Sfc scan, good. Checked directx update, up to date, changed resolution settings and close background apps, all to no avail. I have windows 10.

Anyone else experiencing this? Any ideas? I am not experiencing the low fps issues. just this. Thanks all

UPDATE: So i tried this before but i must have missed something-after removing mods, i found the error went away-i then found out it was RHpistols mod, it was not updated to standards of latest arma update. Sorry and thanks. Hope this will help someone else in the future.
