Third Person set to Vehicle Only Breaks RoW Campaign
New, NormalPublic


When setting a custom difficulty to have the third person mode set to "Vehicle Only" this disables the ability of the Remnant of War camera scene transitions to function properly -- thus getting the player stuck and unable to progress.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Operating System Version
WINDOWS 10 VERSION 20H2 (OS BUILD 19042.1348)
Game Settings
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Start Arma 3
  2. Change difficulty setting for third person camera to "Vehicles Only"
  3. Start Remnant of War campaign missions with any camera transition (level 2, Oreokastro is fastest)
  4. Camera will get stuck at end of cinematic transition
Additional Information

I have done the following when testing:

Removed all mods.

Verified game integrity.

Reinstalled ARMA3 directory.

“Vehicles only” is not a default setting, why it is on during campaign?

Your question implies that the fault lies with the player for changing parameters freely given to them.

A player will change the difficulty settings if they are available just as much as they would change resolution or keybindings.

For example — the prologue campaign provides a forced difficulty setting to avoid issues, maybe RoW should have locked difficulties if this is an out of control issue?

Sorry, didn't mean to upset you with my question, was simply trying to find out if there is a bug that changes default settings one way or another without user involvement
