Client Memory Crash when joining server

Question

Hello, i have been having a non stop problem with new & regular players joining our server. this happens 99% of the time with a new player and around 50% of the time for players that have joined before

  • player joins server starts downloading mission
  • players arma crashes with the following error (this can happen upto 5x times in a row for a player)
  • once the player is finally loaded in the error doesnt happen its only when the mission is being read. so i am assuming it is something in the mission file causing there client to crash.

i have searched the forums for close to a week now with some topics talking about the issue but no solution.

from what my players say this does not happen on other servers.

there is nothing in the rpt log, only "Player has connected" - "Player has disconnected"

Original post 

Just put it into better English

 

If you are having memory crashes try this

Step 1: In Steam right click on Arma3 and then properties.

Step 2: Go to the Beta tab

Step 3: paste this "CautionSpecialProfilingAndTestingBranchArma3 "  don't add the parenthesis  

Step 4: Select the beta program "profiling - Performance Profiling Build"

Tested and approved by several large servers that fixes 95% of the crash

Thank you for the reply. but why is this only happening with players on my server not other servers? 

that's why i think its a server side issue not client side

i have narrowed it down to BattleEye.

My players & myself only get these errors when battleye is enabled. 

any suggestions? i have updated the .so file but still results in crashing my players client.

Edit: We are running on a Linux DS

It's apparently an issue with Arma 3 itself since the last patch. The Exile team said BI are aware of it.

 The way I get around it and advise our server users to avoid it is to;;

 

 1) Load up A3 directly from steam (without A3 launcher unfortunately).
 2) Enable the mods they wish to use (Exile at least!)
 3) Load up the A3 virtual armoury and squeeze a few rounds off in there
 4) Exit and go to the server browser window in A3 to manually browse or directly join the server(s) they wish - add them to favorites for future use!

 

This works for me and our users every time.  Hope it helps you.
