Description

First of two reports.
By introducing Contacts, it is no more possible to load Loadouts with missing dependencies from other mods. These would previously still be loaded and this missing items would be skipped.

For example, if you hover over the Loadout it shows "this linkItem "ItemRadioAcreFlagged";" what is a dependency issue from ACRE, but removing the item from the exported loaded from a previous version solves the problem. Currently I cannot access any of my loadouts or change them, as they are binarized too.

Same issue here. Would be nice to have some sort of workaround.

For us it's not even possible to load loadouts with strictly vanilla items after saving.

An ACE Arsenal still works. The loadouts are greyed out, but can still be loaded. That indeed only works when using Mod.

Ah, that would be a solution for our modded server but I'm not sure if you can import BI Arsenal loadouts into ACE Arsenal when you are on the server?

Try it ;)

I‘ve tried it, it works on our modded server. I don’t know if we have some type of mod that enables this though. Just give it a go.

Hi,
it should be fixed in latest devbranch and in RC build on Steam. RC access code is: Arma3Hotfix194RC

Thanks. I will check it later today.

The fix is working. But it is still not allowing me to load loadouts that miss an item. Previously the arsenal would ignore the item and leave it blank. Thanks for the fix! Looking forward for it to be released.

We have quite a few custom loadouts made by all our members, so having to re-create them is something we really don't feel like doing. Instead, would it be possible to make it so that for now loadouts with missing items can be loaded again? The mod creators than have time to fix the issues with their mods.

Edfit: I just wish the newest release of Task Force Radio will be released soon. That should fix our issues as they are only TFAR related.

You also get them with certain faces by RHS. This issue is related to a certain radio item. Even when you safe newly made loadout, the issue appears in the current release. You had to remove the radio item manually in the exported loadouts from the 192 Release Version.

This is no more the case with the 194dev Client.

By the way if you have ACE, you need to go to the EdenEditor, place an infantryman down, click on tools and press „Import BI VA to ACE Arsenal“. Then you have all the loadouts.

@kajschak that's what we did with the ACE Arsenal. We are going to run a VANILLA server though that will still support usage of TFAR so this needs to be fixed, or reverted to the old system for that to work. We also want to use the 3CB uniforms etc. so we need to be able to use BI Arsenal to load our loadouts.

BI has managed to yet again halt our progress in regards to how we run our servers. So running ACE Arsenal in this case won't help us.

BI just screwed up. They however don't even acknowledge it anymore. I find it quite "remarkable" they seem to release updates that always break something which could have ben avoided with some more testing. They have their own Q&A servers so what's keeping them to test their product with the popular mods used?

I come from the days where developers properly tested their software before release, so I find the current mentality of "oh let's just throw something out there and then hotfix it later" quite appalling. Not to mention the mentality of most users nowadays who immediately jump into defense mode and seem to accept this behaviour. For PAID products. And yes, I am the type of person to make that vocal. Especially when it happens with every release.

Hi,
it should be fixed in today's update of RC. Arsenal should load loadouts which are greyed out just without missing things. Could you please try if it solves your issues? I am sorry for troubles.

Thanks it working with greyed out loadouts again

@Astaroth It is working again. Both saving and loading works as before so our community is happy again.

Good job!
