Hi there. I’ve been having an issue the last 3 days where upon entering the game, my profiles list becomes empty and the game greets me as a first time player (I have almost 2300 hours in game). After verifying my game files, and also seeing if the recent platform hotfix for 1.80 would fix this (neither did), I decided to completely uninstall and reinstall the game.
After reinstalling, I verified I had a new default profile. Then, I created a brand new second one, exited the game, and copy/pasted my old profile over the Other Profiles section.
You can see screenshots of my profile paths here:
I completely closed and opened the game several times and my profiles were being recognized just fine again. I had assumed the reinstall fixed whatever the issue was. I updated a mission I made on Steam, and again closed and opened the game. And again all was well.
I opened the editor and made a brand new mission. I saved it in the editor several times (the game told me my mission was being saved). Upon exiting the game, I noticed in my missions folder in my profile in My Documents that the mission wasn’t there (all my old ones were but the new one never saved). So I loaded up the game, and yet again Arma greets me as a new player and none of my profiles are in the profile list in game. It’s completely blank (see screenshots in thread above).
Yet as you can see in the screenshots, the profiles are still in the proper path, it’s just the game doesn’t recognize them.
Here is my profile: https://www.dropbox.com/s/w5wr2zrxk56vx49/Arma%203%20-%20Other%20Profiles.zip?dl=0&m=
