Series of errors when restarting "Signal Lost"
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When playing "Signal Lost" on normal difficulty and you're killed, you get given the option to restart from a checkpoint. This first checkpoint is after you've finished your conversation with the lieutenant and are off the beach.

If you die during the mission you're offered the chance to restart at that checkpoint. If you do so, you're presented with the good old "you cannot play/edit this mission it is dependent on downloadable content that has been deleted" error, followed by a very long list of "missing content".

After having dismissed that error, you're taken back to the start of the mission - to see the quote splash screen, go through the cut-scene and start the mission back on the beach. However, instead of occurring as designed, the camera remains fixed upon the sea (from eye-level), with no HUD, rendering the mission unplayable.

In order to play the mission again, you must exit the mission and then restart it from the "campaign" main menu.

Could you please try verify integrity of game cache?
Thank you.

That was the first thing I tried. If the files were indeed missing, surely I would be unable to play the mission at all?

I'm getting the same error for other missions too.

Could you please load savegame again and then attach here .rpt file with newest date in name? You can find this file here : C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\Arma 3\

Thank you.

Discovered the problem - for some reason the mod "Community Base Addons" was interfering. Disabled mod and now it works. Thanks for your time though :)
