Editor autosaves when "missing mods" dialog is still open
Closed, ResolvedPublic


This issue happens extremely often to me due to the fact I start Arma 3 with the mission file parameter without loading the correct mods, I then get distracted and over 5 minutes later I remember that I opened Arma 3 then alt-tab back in, the autosave sound plays, and the mission has been overridden by the now empty mission.

According to Dedmen ticket please, auto save should be disabled while "missing mods" dialog is open.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Eden Editor
Steps To Reproduce

Repo Steps:

  1. Load into a mission with missing mods using the mission file parameter.
  2. Leave the menu open/ alt-tab out of the game and get distracted by something else.
  3. Remember that you opened Arma 3.
  4. Alt-tab back into Arma 3.
  5. Editor autosave will happen which overwrites the mission with an empty mission.

Isn’t autosave optional, set to auto save by default?

You can choose:
Never, 5 min, 15 min, 30 min, 1 hour.
In the auto save dropdown box.
