Game freeze(paused) when it's window not actived
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I play ArmA3 in windowed mode,every time when i switch out of the game,it just freezed where I leave, I can active it back,it continues. but if I'm loading game or like moving with a vehicle, after I switch back, I didn't get any progress.
In ArmA2, while game window is not actived, there is some lag on graphic but it doesn't freeze or pause. Or maybe make a option for it like in FSX,you can choose whether pause the game for task switching.

have you tried the -nopause command line option?

This is intentional. Run the game with -nopause.
