While chatting in global channel in multiplayer I noticed that sometimes things like compass and watch will pop up while typing.
- Legacy ID
- join server (not sure if DS matters) as non-local player
- open the player list (not the scoreboard; default binding: 'lshift-p') update: you can also hit 'J' (default binding) and then select "Players"
- close the player list
- start chatting and hit keys like q/e/k/o
It happens on host and DS. When a player opens the player list on a host, then the "chat dance" happens for everybody.
Use the map and then click on Players.
@TicKByT, and it is not possible for anyone to use the search function before posting the same bugs. The tracker is meant for reporting issues, NOT already reported.
Concerning the grenade thing not active I did kill my whole squad because of this bug. Had by bindings to 2x"t" and whille misstyping I also threw a nade.. : /
Well it is for the tracker. People should close down their tickets if they didn't search beforehand and just created "yet another" ticket of the same subject.
If the issue is the same as already reported then it has no justification being here just because someone "feels" like it.
It is that simple.
Thats my point
Unfortunately still not fixed. I think it needs a respawn in MP and happens to non-local players only (e.g. also on dedicated server), but this needs verification.
Definitely needs a higher priority, it was already a shame in A2 when the bug persisted for that long.
This is still an very significant issue in the current dev and stable builds. With the grenade keybinds it can be lethal to your nearby teammates. Accidental death can happen. Especially when you rebind your grenade key to say 2xT and you type the word Attack. I am glad to see this issue is assigned and set to urgent already.
I have my compass in 'R', and I have my inventory at 'OEM102 + R'. And whenever I open my inventory the compass flashes on the screen. Previously I had my inventory at 'L.Shift + R' and the same happened then. The same glitch is in Arma2OA too.
However I think this is a very low priority, considering what other issues are out there.
I was able to reproduce it, but after resetting my controls the problem disappeared. Could you please try if the following helps?
- Navigate to Configure->Controls.
- Click Presets button.
- Choose Arma 3 and click OK.
- Close controls by clicking OK.
Jep, I was playing MP on Tuesday too, the whole evening and it didn't occur. I believe you don't even have to revert the controls to the preset, but you might only have to modify your controls once.
Setting to resolved.
I don't see how this is fully resolved. Even if there's a workaround, the underlying problem that causes this still seems to be active.
I recently recreated my profile and had to recustomise my controls, as I use quite a few non-standard key bindings (e.g., double tap space to step over).
Even after recreating my profile this problem persists, which basically means any new player could face the same issue.
This happens for me no matter what channel I type to. I've accidentally fragged friendly players twice because of the speed needed to type would activate the throw (G*2). The compass, watch, and both leans "q" and "e" all stay active while chatting.
To be honest, I don't see why this is a "major" bug. If you have time to type something via chat you have time to double tap o to close your compass again. Yes, it shouldn't happen, but the fact that it does doesn't cause any problems.
That is correct, it did not make it to current Stable build (it was hotfix - only MP desync fixes were present). However, it should already be fixed on Steam Dev and will be in 1.32 Stable update.
Mass-closing all resolved issues not updated in the last month.
