Arma 3 Possible FPS/crash fix for 1.62


Recommended Posts

Have you experienced Massive framedrops to only 3 FPS and/or has your game crashed out of nowhere (also texture loss)?

There is a fix and your FPS might improve by 20%

Switching to profiling branch on Arma 3's Steam properties might fix memory issue that leads to the game crashing.



- Right click on Arma 3 in your Steam Library, then Properties
- Select the tab BETAS
- Enter the code CautionSpecialProfilingAndTestingBranchArma3 then click CHECK CODE
- Finally, still in this BETAS tab, use the dropdown list to select the branch profiling - Performance Profiling Build

Profiling branch works with servers running stable branch. 

It's a temporary fix until the next patch

After about 90 minutes of playing on EU2, I just had a CTD, crash report and all (which I've actually NEVER had before with ArmA 3). :blink:


From the monitoring log, however, GPU seemed to be holding pretty steady this time.


EDIT: Make that two. Needs further testing, but may have something to do with being a pilot or view distance? Worked fine while I was infantry (view distance 1600), but as pilot (view distance 3200), I CTD'ed within 15 minutes. Same error: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION, apparently in this file "Arma 3\dll\tbb4malloc_bi.dll"
