Arma 3

Black Screen on Launch
So, I've only been able to successfully launch Epoch 2 times. The other 100+ tries my game will load through the ARMA 3 intro then just sit black where the main menu of the mod would be. It comepletely freezes up my computer and I am forced to Ctrl + Alt + Del and end the program. When it closes I get the Unable_to_Init_DXGI or Status_Application_Hang error message. I've looked all over the web for possible solution but have yet to find anything that has worked. Has anyone experienced this issue/ fixed it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Have you tried waiting? Myself, I have to wait a good 4 or 5 minutes for it to launch.

I'll have to try waiting longer I guess. The longest I tried was like ~2-3 minutes. All other mods usually start instantly which is why I didn't think waiting would actually help. I'll give it a try and respond with results.

So after waiting 5 minutes it finally loaded, I guess this will just be the standard if I want to play the mod. Thanks for the help.

Every time that I go to launch and it comes to the black screen it freezes out my whole pc. I've even tried to re-subscribe but it just goes back to freezing.

I have the same problem.
I've tried using another launcher to go directly into a server (A3) However this only works, until it is missing around 15% of the loading bar, whereafter my game freezes and nothing happens. Forcing me to close the game after a few minutes.

#11 The "fix" he mentioned seems to work

As I mentioned above in my edited comment, the only fix I could find was to just sit for a minimum of 5 mniutes at the black screen and wait. It eventually works. I haven't been able to eliminate that issue. For me and a couple other I know, waiting was the only way it worked.

I wonder if its something with the way the remote exe runs server side now and the changes from arma 3 1.58 here in the recent weeks with there updates.
