Create Task module will not allow users to set the task type.
Closed, DuplicatePublic


The Create Task module's dropdown field for setting task types is broken. When attempting to click the dropdown arrow to choose a task type, the field returns no options.


Operating System
Windows 10
Eden Editor
Steps To Reproduce

1: Place "Create Task" module in EDEN editor.
2: Select dropdown for "Set Task Type".
3: Dropdown fails to return any selectable options.

Additional Information

Tested in vanilla and with mods, same result. Issue can be circumnavigated by using the BIS_fnc_taskSetType function (I used it in a trigger timed to kick 0.5s after game start), but obviously this is not a perfect option.

Confirmed in 1.66 stable. Also, there is no way to manually type a string value for task type into the dialog box.

Hi, @volc

We know about this issue with drop down module boxes. It´s happens just on Small and Normal Interface Size. Try to change it on Very Small, Large or Very Large. Will be fixed soon.

Thanks for report.

Hi Alwin,

No, for me the Task Type dialog in Create Task Module is inaccessible for Very Small, Small, Normal, and Large Interface Sizes. Changing interface size has no effect on the issue. Seems to me the Task Type dialog is inaccessible, period.

Using 1.66 stable, the only way to get task icons to display in initial briefing at start of mission is to manually edit Type section of un-binarized mission.sqm for each task.

Another ticket says that the issue has been fixed in 1.67 Dev branch:
