Animation(s) Bug out and twitch when idle.
New, NormalPublic


I've had this happen every game ever since I started playing again last week! Everything is up to date I fixed it once but it was only fixed for a day! It was apparently because I had old mods on from steam so I deleted them all and that fixed it but now that I have no mods and the bug/glitch is back I cant do anything from my knowledge! Please help its disturbing seeing my idle characters have seizures. The idle pose that is most affected by this bug is when the character is kneeling (crouching) idle with rifle in hands. His head starts bobbing up and down fast not very noticeable, but then his left arm and head begin to spaz out in a really weird way. Only way I can describe it is like a seizure.

Additional Information

I've been trying to get help constantly and this is my final try. As it seems to me there is no one else with my problem. Please if you have the time I would love to have a chat to get this fixed since I believe that I have tried everything I can think of and the bug still persists. @razazel I don't know how to assign someone to this feedback so this is my attempt to get ya here seeing as you seem to help a lot with these kind of things.

have you verified the integrity of the game cache of Arma 3 with Steam? Sometimes small issues like that may appear if some files become corrupted after downloading huge data packages.

Congratulations, you have successfully added Razazel as a subscriber by yourself ;)

I am not a developer but I will take a look into that issue in a few minutes and I try to reproduce that behavior and will leave a response.

So yeah, there seems to be an issue with the ambient animations with the AI unit.

It looks like the animation becomes fast forwarded and it looks like the unit has some seizures.

I have exactly done it like you have described it and waited a few seconds.

Yes I have already tried that and the files were successfully validated. Ya I have had those types of problems sneak in after re download which sucks. And I'm so new to this site haha I saw that a lot of questions had people assigned to their topics so I was like well... why not I have no clue what i'm doing so ya I pressed keys on my keyboard and now he is a subscriber... what help that will do? I don't know ha. But thanks for your response! I thought I was the only one having this problem since I searched everywhere but got nothing.
