Default Constant Freezing

Game randomly freezes usually every 10 - 15 minutes, sound can still be heard in the background.

Than 30 seconds later it usually catches up and everything goes back to normal, but sometimes it crashes to desktop with "ArmA 2 Reinforcements not responding" message.

I tried lowering the settings, running as admin, adding as trusted on my antivirus, e.t.c...

Can you post up your PC specs, this might help determine if its a software or hardware issue...?

Sounds most likely that you are running out of GFX card memory, if it last for long or crashes to desktop but you still hear the sounds do the following and it will fix it.

Press 'Left Shift' + 'Keypad -' and then type 'flush', this will clear the GFX memory.

Diamond Xtreme Audio

Doubt its a hardware problem though.

Playing ArmA 2 Warfare on a full 48 player server never freezes/crashes.
Playing ACE Domi also never freezes/crashes.

This only happens when playing PR, happens on every PR server. There has got to be a sync issue, because moments after game recovers from freeze (if does not crash with "ArmA 2 reinforcements stopped working). Everyone is running around with idle animations for few seconds, than everything is back to normal.

Are you running any background applications, overlays, voip software? What you use for protection AV/IS - firewall?

Your settings? Video? Are you using beta patch, and do you run Steam maybe?

Before entering the game open Resource Monitor from Task Manager and when the game locks alt-tab or ctrl-alt-del to windows to see if something fishy is going on. I just noticed this way that when I get huge stutter in-game windows seems to be writing to pagefile at the same time.

Also download playclaw and monitor ur cpu and gpu temps in real time while playing.

I find MSI afterburner quite up to task for this since its basically riva tuner OSD server packed to it. I got nice OSD so I can always see if I got bottleneck somewhere.

Although you need a moderate skills to set it up properly and watch what youre clicking or you might screw up.
