Unit Logo not showing In Game Profile and on Uniforms and other items
Reviewed, NormalPublic


I already had arma 3 unit selected and linked with my Steam ID and also selected on Arma 3 Units on Launcher Dashboard.

When i launch my game it gives me some kind of paa error not found.

Something like mipmap not found
C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Arma3\... .paa not found.

If i select my Unit and go in game atleast my name has unit in it but does not show icons.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64

RPT spammed with 18:44:22 Warning Message: Cannot load mipmap p:\units\15bn\sp25wht9sq.paa.
procmon spammed with QueryBasicInformationFile P:\Units\15BN\sp25wht9SQ.paa SUCCESS.
The filename is P:\Units\15BN\sp25wth9SQ.paa, can be an issue of case sensitivity? (note the last two characters in the file name)

What is the way i can fix this ?

For info, it happens on the dedicated server too, or using Zeus. From RPT:

"Error a1 reading file 'config\\squads\15bn\sp25wht9sq.paa'"

Hey. I had the exact same issue with my image. A reupload of the the logo with no shadows fixed the issue for my guys. Does the file you are trying to upload contain any such shadows?

I can confirm that - same issue.

I think a transparant background helps/fixes this

For my case I've found the downloaded sp25wht9sq.paa file has wrong content. The content is HTML instead of an image. This is the content:

<head><title>301 Moved Permanently</title></head>
<body bgcolor="white">
