  1. Manually add the choppers yourself (manned), and make sure they are virtualized (if you use the option to virtualized all synced units, sync the manned chopper to Virtual AI. Just make sure the faction of the chopper is controlled your Commander). Not sure on the chat spam.

    I just reported this to the 3CB team a few days back. They said they’d look into it. Bummer it’s giving you connection issues. For me, when loading in the editor, I have no problem connecting but maybe this error is more severe in MP environments. That sucks. If I get a chance I’ll ask the 3CB team which asset(s) this is from. My best guess is a truck of some kind that the new Arma update doesn’t like (the error is new). Hey, what are you using for revive? Is it just for players or does it work with AI too?
  3. My profile won't load. I really could use some help

    Wow the problem’s back. Time to wipe my PC I guess. Crazy I’m the only one having this problem. The rpt still says Arma can’t find my Documents folder, and this is with a new Arma install, new Windows profile account, and a brand new profile (no copy/pasting anything from the old profile this time).
  4. Make sure your modules aren’t spawning an HQ or Field HQ, and that air assets are set to off in MIL Obj module. If it’s vehicles too, check for ambient vehicles in the MIL Obj module (if it’s group spawns, I usually blacklist my main base from having vehicle group spawns in almost all cases because they get in way.) The map index might need some adjustments for the ambient air assets but I haven’t tried playing on Malden yet so can’t say one way or the other.
  5. Hmm. I actually was the one that regrouped all possible RHS factions so they’d be ALiVE compatible, as well as enabling their assets for resupply and Logistics. So basically, if there’s an issue with RHS, it’s probably my fault. Lol Someone told me not long ago that some RHS factions from USAF are showing up as OPFOR. Thing is, I spawned a bunch of their various groups after hearing this, and they show up as blue on the map and if I recall, looking at the code, their side is west. So it should be ok. I may have to ask around. I’m not a coding guy. Can any of you determine what side they are spawning as when spawned by MIL/Civ obj, then also check what side they are when a playable unit is placed and get back to me? What you’re describing would indicate the manually placed unit from USMC D is being recognized as a different side. I don’t see how that’s possible, I tested this all very thoroughly before the last RHS update, but I guess it’s possible we had a regression? EDIT: I looked though the code again. Side and GroupSideName are defined as West for USMC D. So it would seem to me at least as far as ALiVE is responsible, all seems well unless I’m missing something.

  6. My profile won't load. I really could use some help

    I want to thank @yxman for taking the time to assist me here via Steam chat. So the issue apparently was Arma suddenly not being able to read or write or see my Arma 3 Documents folders, as seen in the client rpt. He suggested I make a new profile on my PC and see if things began working again and so far, so good.
  7. My profile won't load. I really could use some help

    I play off of an Arma3 -Other Profile because for whatever reason using the default profile automatically makes my in-game user name in MP my real life first and last name. I’m really not comfortable with that. Since of course Arma doesn’t allow you to rename the default profile, I just make a new one and name it whatever I like (Heroesandvillains). I’ve used this profile in this exact location for years now. Never had an issue. (Edit: To be clear, any time you make a second profile in the game, Arma 3 - Other Profiles is the path Arma makes for the second profile automatically. I didn’t create this path, the game did and always has) Thanks for the link and suggestions. I do appreciate it. I don’t know much about commands or parameters though. I can try it. The example on the wiki is a bit confusing. I know where to put launch parameters, but do you know offhand what the functioning parameter would be for my exact profile location?
  8. My profile won't load. I really could use some help

    This command returns However adding the next line from above shoots an error. I also just checked One Drive and although it is installed, it's turned off (it says I'm not logged in). Is this enough info to determine if I'm logging into an MS account? Should I uninstall One Drive or anything else?
  9. My profile won't load. I really could use some help

    I must be typing this into Powershell wrong. I keep getting user ID not found responses, and stuff like... When I type into Powershell whoami it says but I must be messing the second part up.
  10. My profile won't load. I really could use some help

    @yxman Sure thing I’ll check. What i don't understand though is why it was working and loading and saving stuff just fine for a few hours yesterday after several closes and launches until it failed again out of nowhere. I had someone else suggest that perhaps I need to run Arma as admin (which I’ll try too) because it sounds like it might be a permissions issue with reading/writing. Of course I’ll try both suggestions and I appreciate the help. I’ll keep you posted after running your steps. It’s just currently as you can see in the screens, I can’t load any profile, not the default one or my main one that I copy pasted, because the in-game profile menu is blank. And I can’t create one either. I’m not sure I can stomach a compete uninstall/reinstall again just to have access to any profile to troubleshoot these suggestions with. I’m assuming the game won’t let me do anything without a profile. Lol. What a mess.
  11. My profile won't load. I really could use some help

    No it’s not live/onedrive. Well I don’t think so. I’m not a computer whiz. I just have Windows 10 installed and Steam installed and download Arma 3 with Steam and play. My default profile name is my Windows PC name, and if it helps, I’ve never heard of Live or Onedrive. So I doubt I have accounts for those. This is probably the best course of action. I just really want to avoid it if possible. Although my settings aren’t robust, I do have quite a few compositions saved, some custom graphics settings and keybinds I’d like to not start from scratch with and stuff like that. Its kind of a bummer with so many hours with this game, and with the product nearing end of life, I could get such a crippling bug all of a sudden. But yeah, I may just try this. I mean the game is literally unplayable for me if profiles keep disappearing. I can’t make missions or even save my game progress or anything if I can’t solve it. Here is a ticket I opened: https://feedback.bistudio.com/T127321 I appreciate the replies everyone.
  12. My profile won't load. I really could use some help

    And for anyone that thinks maybe my profile wasn't working after the reinstall and that maybe I'm confused, here is indisputable proof it was working just fine before the game stopped recognizing it again. Look at the timestamp of the update to this mission of mine on Steam:
  13. My profile won't load. I really could use some help

    NOOOOOOO. My profile is gone again. I just don't understand what's going on here. I reinstalled the game, allowed the game to create a brand new default profile, made a brand new second profile, then copy/pasted my old profile into the other profiles spot in my Documents Arma 3 area, and closed and opened the game completely several times. It was all working absolutely fine. Good as new! So I spend some time editing a mission. All good there. Closed and opened the game and everything is fine and dandy. Then I spent two hours making a mission, only to realize that it didn't save anywhere. And sure enough, I launch the game again suspecting the worst, and I see this. Vanished!: Notice how the top right corner there is no profile. It's fucking empty. What the hell? My folder path: So as you can see it's still there. The game just won't recognize it. This is after a complete reinstall. What the heck is going on?
  14. My profile won't load. I really could use some help

    In case anyone finds this thread googling similar issue, the only way I was able to solve this was by reinstalling the game. Verifying the game files and even a platform update didn’t help. Fortunately having backed up my profile, copy pasting it back in it still works.
  15. General Discussion (dev branch)

    Man I just want to thank you Red Phoenix for even trying this with the grass and clutter LOD’s (and by extension Evil Organ and Haleks for being so vocal and investigative on the matter). It’s easily my #1 complaint with the base game so it really means a lot you’re doing your best here, no matter how it turns out.
