What mission were you playing?

AD2001, in-game editor.

Do you mean the custom subtitles are missing (for example "This is Alpha, proceeding with the attack") or the ones built-in into the game ("2, Gunner - get in Hunter")?

They work for me, but I'll still upvote.

It missing for me,too.
After update to BETA,I have to setup things again, and after I disabled the toturial hints and enabled vehicle freelook in Game Option, the subtitles never came back no matter how I change settings there.

Looks like we both have the same issue, CXN. Hopefully it gets fixed!

I just tryed this again, Comms and replys' subtitle works fine if I was the teamleader, otherwise nothing shows there.

UPDATE: Restarted Steam, removed mods, disabled command line parameters, disabled FRAPs, verified game cache, still nothing.

With DEV .71.107070,even a commander don't have any subtitles,
I've checked both game setting and "CXN2615.Arma3Profile" file, they all shows my options are on (showTitles=1; showRadio=1), and in option of LAYOUT, it shows my chat window is in correct position.
But just noting here.

Still the same problem here even with the latest Beta update (28 June 2013).

TEMPORARY FIX: Creating a new profile seems to make captions work.

Somehow,it back for me,without update(still DEV.71.10707)
The only things I could remember which might related to this is I just opend my Profile file(Without edit and save),and I played around with ArmA2OA Before this try.....
May still need some looking though

Does creating a new profile help everyone or does it not?

Fireball, strange, but no, likes some captions missed for voice templates


  1. disable => "stream friendly UI" in Game options (work for me 100%)
  2. (optional) restart Arma3

you work on Sunday?
we thank you!

somehow it happend again when I switch back form DEV version.

I'll try Dev path again, but in stabled virsion 1.02 it is missing.

EDIT: confim it is still "stream friendly UI enabled" problem,when it disable,all ok

It's not a problem, it's supposed to be like that with the Stream friendly UI.

It is still happening. If I were new player and came to multiplayer I wouldnť even know about chat. Because there is no chat with SteamUI friendly. What for is this btw? :-/

I disabled "Stream Friendly UI" but my Chatbox disaperas sometimes :-(

Stream Friendly UI avoids any UI elements that disturb display and/or potentially give away the server of the person streaming, hence chat is disabled.

R34P3R, if you press your chat key it should always reappear and you can use PgUp/PgDn to scroll.
