Reference Memory crash.


Recommended Posts

My arma keeps crashing due to a "Reference memory error". I cant seem to find a fix online so I was wondering if anyone here at Olympus knew what was going on. It is quite annoying and the only way to fix it is to restart my computer. 

So the game crashes with a reference memory error and then opens a window that tells me http://i58.tinypic.com/wrlw83.png

If anyone can offer advice it would be greatly appreciated.

Go to     C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps

SteamApps -> common -> Arma 3

(your arma 3 directory in steam basically)

find a folder called "Dll" - remove/delete this file.

When there was an Arma3 patch it reappeared in my directory so I'm pretty sure you have to delete it every time there is a patch. Apparently it is used for optimizing Arma3 or something, idk.

Ok, when I deleted it, it stops my memory errors - or at least now I get them very rarely.

sidenote: if you don't want to unintentionally break your game by deleting a folder, just move it. When I was trying this, all I did was move the folder out of the directory (to my desktop for example that way I could put it right back in if the memory error problem wasn't fixed). Turns out it did fix it though, so the Dll folder just kinda sits in my recycle bin for a rainy day I guess xD

Hope this helps, if not, Sorry :/ might be another issue.
