Incorrect weekday displayed in eden editor.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Launcher version: 1.5.146096
Game version: 1.96.146114
Branch: Main
The incorrect weekday is displayed in the eden editor. The displayed weekday is one day ahead of the real weekday on the same date. Playing the mission and viewing a diary record will display the correct date.
Example: 2020-01-15 (today's date at time of writing) is a Wednesday but is in the eden editor displayed as a Thursday.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Steps To Reproduce
  1. In the eden editor set the date to a date of which the weekday can be verified.
  2. Note that the incorrect weekday is displayed in the editor's drop-down menu.
  3. Place a player unit.
  4. Create a diary record visible to the player unit.
  5. Launch mission (singleplayer and multiplayer produce same result).
  6. Note that the correct weekday is displayed in the diary record.
Additional Information

The diary record used for testing was created by using the following line in "initplayerlocal.sqf" in the mission folder:

player createDiaryRecord ["Diary", ["text", "text"]];

Screenshot displaying incorrect weekday in the eden editor's drop-down menu for selecting the date.

Screenshot displaying correct weekday in singleplayer session.

@Wulf closed out my ticket saying it was the same as this ticket - it is NOT.

Not only are the times wrong and ONLY for certain years (2019 showed fine), the moon cycle is whacked big time.

Examples of this can be found at HERE.

@z80cpu I am aware that you have other information as well there, they were added to the ticket, but leaving two tickets that have similarities open would be a headache to deal with, not to mention to close every copy that mentions the same issue. It is nothing personal it is just more efficient.

Regarding the moon phases, we are aware of the problem however us changing that now would break some of the night missions already created for the game not just our own,but by the community as well, so yeah we know it is wrong, but we would rather not break other things because of that.

@Wulf - I agree with 2 tickets with the same info. I did not see (if there or not) if the 'moon issue' was on this ticket. I agree with you 100% on that! :)

One thing that does disturb me and it is NOT of your doings; is Bohemia allowing known issues to be left alone. To ME, this is nothing but 'shoddy workmanship'. As a programmer of 40 years and coded for a living around 5 years of the 40, and an IT tech now for about 35 years now, I never put out anything that was not 100% correct/proper/etc. My work speaks of me and of my values. I take pride in my work at all times. I never make excuses for anything that I work on.

My company, my team, nor I would never exhibit such a stance. Why fix anything then if people can 'live with it'?

As a customer of yours for about 19 years now, this leaves a 'bad taste' in my mouth. I expected better.

There is NO 'excuse or reason' to be delivering a 'broken product'. I see this as nothing but laziness and poor quality control on Bohemia's behalf.

I am NOT taking issue with YOU, rather the COMPANY. Bohemia HAS done good work before, sadly, this is not one of them... :(

And how hard is it to change a date in the game to line up with a desired moon cycle? 10 seconds? It aint that hard nor time consuming. And one does not even have to start ARMA either! A simple 'find and replace' program such as 'TextCrawler' to do this. I use it quite often for said issues.

I am not 'angry' with you or Bohemia, just disappointed in Bohemia for their 'stance' in these two issues.

Thank you for 'combining' my ticket with this one and apologize for creating more work for ya!
