SP missions loaded from STEAMWORKS cant be resumed without mission breaking bad
Closed, ResolvedPublic


While player SP mission downloaded from STEAMWORKS, you can normally save, die and load savegames while staying in the mission. But if you exit to the menu or the whole game and later try to continue the mission, the mission loads, but once playing it have forgotten dialogs (e.g. everything under RscTitles with the same mentioning of those missing) and many other if not all script stop working correctly displaying error-messages and game starting stutter heavily. The same identical SP mission, played in old way. Can be resumed normally without problems.

Steps To Reproduce

Download my Whole Lotta Stratis mission from STEAMWORK, save the game anytime when playing it. E.g. already after start dialog. Exit to game menu and try to resume the mission.

Identical version of the mission can be downloaded from here to play it old way (pbo in missions folder -> start in scenarious), with this resuming works without problems and its the same versio of the mission (only created to missions folder in editor):

Additional Information

As other issue if you have identically named pbo-file downloaded from steamworks and missions folder, you cant resume both versions of the identical mission. It says, it cant load the autosave.

After the latest dev-version, it says now "Cannot load 'path...continue.Arma3Save'" when trying to resume the mission from workshop. I dont have the same mission pbo's in missions folder.

Got pass that by renaming the mission folder, not to have %20's and #'s in it. But seems like the fix wasnt yet there. But no hurry. :)

If I'm looking correctly the current steam version is 108717 but the fix is in 108782.

I've talked to our distribution guys, today some Steam dev servers/services are down so we can't build new public exe. Currently uploaded exe was built yesterday. It's couple revision newer then the previous one but it doesn't include all the changes.

Thanks, :) looks like the issue is now gone in the latest DEV-version.
