Epoch Crashing

Question

Guest Astycc   
Guest Astycc

I have recently been having problems with ArmA 2 OA and ArmA 2, when booting them through Steam, I get the "ArmA 2 OA has stopped working" and have to close it, I have done this over and over, I have restarted my PC multiple times, verify the cache of all ArmA 2 over and over, I also seem to be getting "missing executable" when launching ArmA 2 OA Beta.

Another problem I have been having is when I am launching Epoch (Only happening after the new RP patch) it gets to 3 quarters loaded, then ArmA 2 decides to crash, this has happened ever since the newest hotfix install, I re-installed the latest stable ArmA patch, which is the default one and deleted the RP code etc. but it still happens, I need both of these problems fixing if anyone can help.

PS - Reinstalling ArmA 2 OA currently.

Run steam as administrator. That should solve your problem.

However, I think that is just a temporary fix, so reinstalling is your best bet.

What about the Epoch fix? Is it the same problem?

Try putting -malloc=system into your launch parameters to fix the Epoch crashing

Attempted that previously, did not affect it at all.

Yeah I had the exact same problem with Not Responding. I just ran DayZ Commander as Administrator and it worked fine.

I re-installed ArmA 2 OA, still nothing, ran Steam as admin, nothing, do I need to re-install normal ArmA 2 or not?

Hmm I honestly dont have a clue then. Try reinstall your beta patch?

Do you not know if I have to re-install ArmA 2 as well as OA or not?

I wouldn't expect so, try re-installing your beta patch.

Re-installed the beta, ArmA 2 OA still refuses to work, but the beta works fine, now to try Epoch.

Still need a fix for OA not actually working.

I would say just wait around for an answer for the ArmA 2 OA but then it might just be easier re-downloading it again.

Right, I re-installed EVERYTHING, Epoch, DayZ, ArmA 2, OA, Beta, EVERYTHING.

I still get the not responding thing 3/4 way through loading, I literally have no idea what to do, I have no launch parameters and have done everything that should allow me to play.

Please note: I get to lobby fine, with no kick or anything, but my game just whilst loading (after lobby)

I have ran Steam as admin MULTIPLE times after closing it, I have re-installed Steam, re-installed ArmA, I cannot do anything.

EDIT: I did nothing different to before, but got in this time, no-idea why, but whatever.

Staff can close this, but I may re-open it if the issue persists at a later date.
