  • Might have it figured out.

    So after my eleventy nineth crash last night I gave up and went to uninstall arma. When I clicked uninstall I got an error about bad strings, then the short cut in the control panel disappeared. Very Interesting. So I started installing it again this morning and as soon as i put the CD I didnt get a play option only an install. After it was done I had several extra "new" files in my ArmA 2 directory. Hopefully this fixes it.

      Heh, that sounds typically bad! I've had that experience with the system32 folder once :o

      Good luck with it, Dredge!

        So far so good. I have Lorelei working it right now....I am having to update with the 1.04 patch again and ACE and the beta (just cause i like the new helo controls). So everything is wiped and starting fresh.....

            lol. if thats what it takes to make the CTD's stop I am willing to try anything! But I think it should be ok now. I moved alot of stuff around and added whatnots to my addons and I think throughout the process managed to mess up my core ArmA files, and it was only a matter of time before it became unstable. So with a fresh install new files and an new update I think I should be back in the field fighting socom for the pilot slot! lol.

                A google search revealed this

                Hope that helps. It's supposed to be for dedicated servers but maybe your 'start in' path is wrong?

                The same search also reveals a post by someone else on TG's battlefield whatever forum.

                Also looks like someone on the ACE2 forum at BI is having the same problem, but there's been no response.

                  Re: Might have it figured out.

                  yeah i think i have figured out the problem just by reading that. the new beta comes with an ArmA server.exe and i think Lorelei (who was working on it for me) used that as the shortcut instead of the regular beta. I will have to check on that when i get home tonight.

                    Re: Might have it figured out.

                    Ok rolled back my ATI drivers. Have no prob on Bravo server loaded it up and played for several hours but the second I join Alpha I CTD. I played on it before for awhile but not now. I wonder if it has to do with the fact that here are almost 40 people on the server? When I was on it earlier there where only like 6.

                    Thoughts?

                      Dredge, in my personal experience CTD come without any apparent reason. I always crash in every gaming session, some times after 15 min, other times 1 hour, but I always crash :p

                      Since arma1 that I started seeing this as a sign of the gods to go and do something else.

                        ROFL! But have u ever wondered if this is a sign of the gods telling that your CPU is overheating?

                          Re: Might have it figured out.

                          Found this on the Bohemia Wiki....Think this might be a leading cause?

                          Arma crashes when connecting to servers
                          Any attempt to connect to a server crashes ArmA with an error message "arma has encountered a problem and needs to close"

                          Solution

                          Solve it by deleting some troublesome MP cache files ~

                          C:\Documents and Settings\user profile\local settings\application data\ArmA
                          Delete the ArmA folder, and try to connect to some servers.

                              IT could be that half the people playing on Alpha last night had a different version of ACE which causes inconsistency and may cause crashes.
