Is the problem on the Mod or Standalone: Mod

Does this problem occur on other public DayZ/ArmA/SA servers as well: Yes it does.

How long have you had this problem:

For about a month or two

What have you done to fix this already:

I've reinstalled the game and verified the integrity and what not on steam.

Does the PreNLOD (or something) error message come up?

No it just closes.


Crash to desktop tells its a game problem with ArmA.

What ArmA beta are you using?

No idea, whatever the latest one is.

I am using that version, so that is not the problem.

Dude, he's trying to help you. The worst thing you can do is not listen.

What is the message your friends see in game when your game crashes?

Alright let's all relax here and get back to helping out.

Voedric, does this happen on any other games that you play or just Arma? Do you check the Temps of your processor and graphics card? Could be over heating and shutting down.

Alright, do you have wired or wireless connection?

Wired.

My CPU for some reason runs around 60-80c

I have a water cooler so i have no idea why it does that.

Check your client log for any errors or crash messages:

C:\Users\\AppData\Local\ArmA 2 OA\ARMA2OA.RPT

For me thats seems pretty high for having watercooling, ArmA uses a lot of both CPU and GPU power though.

I would try to update your GPU drivers.

Check your client log for any errors or crash messages:

C:\Users\\AppData\Local\ArmA 2 OA\ARMA2OA.RPT

The only thing i see is

Invalid sample format, channels: 1, frequency: 0.000000

This is about sound.

Are you loading ACRE? If so, dont.

Check your samples settings, autoadjust your sample settings in ArmA menu Audio settings as a start.

You can also if above doesnt work try renaming/deleting your cfg file...

c:\users\[windows username]\My Documents\ArmA 2\Arma2OA.cfg

ArmA will re-create it when it runs (you'll have to reset your graphic settings).

If that doesn't work, try moving your profile to the desktop (so you can restore it back if necessary)...

c:\users\[windows username]\My Documents\ArmA 2 Other Profiles\[your profile name folder]

or (if you just used the default profile)

c:\users\[windows username]\My Documents\ArmA 2\[profilename].ArmA2OAProfile

Again, these will be recreated when you launch ArmA.

Let me know how your doing with this

it still does it, i dunno what the problem is.

It might be my CPU temps, i'm going to be re-applying my thermal paste at some point soon.

Monitor your cpu temps. See at what temp it gets when it starts to crash on you and give you the white screen. If this happens every time your cpu reaches a certain temp then we may have figured it out.

Let us know when this issue is solved.
