Arma 3 Unit slows down BEGUID verification time
Acknowledged, NormalPublic


I used to be in an arma 3 unit and it would always take forever to load into a server lobby. In RCon I would always get stuck on verifying GUID.
I left the unit and the issue stopped but it never really occurred to me that was the issue until I joined another unit and started having the problem again.

It only happens if you have a unit selected from your launcher and it isn't 100% of time time that it happens. Once it starts it will not stop until you disable the unit and/or delete the .arma3profile you're using. Deleting the profile is only a temp fix though obviously.

I'm sorry I cant give any more details, this is all I have been able to figure out.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Operating System Version
Version 10.0.14393 Build 14393
Steps To Reproduce

Select an arma 3 unit and enter the game.
Try to join an online server with BE enabled.
If you get stuck on the progressBar before you reach the lobby you know your bugged.

Hi, @ConnorCableTV

which server did it? Can I ask you about your game report if you have someone. You can get it via Launcher Troubleshooting report. Also, you can get report manually from C:\Users\*username*\AppData\Local\Arma 3.

Thank you.


All servers do it but I have had the issue on a couple of Australian servers as well as my local server.

I have the game report and launcher report in case it is of any use to you. As said in the original description, I resolved the issue simply by playing without a unit selected. Where the game RPT ends is where I got stuck trying to connect to the server.

this is what it looks like in the server console, you can see my GUID doesn't verify and I end up disconnecting.
