Arma3 latest launcher version can only read mission files from docs\Arma folder and not docs\Arma 3
Closed, ResolvedPublic


All previously saved missions - saved under C:\Users\UserName\Documents\Arma 3\missions are now no longer accessible from the Arma3 Launcher.

Missions are now being saved to C:\Users\UserName\Documents\Arma\Users\UserName\missions for some weird reason. There doesn't appear to be a simple method of changing the path.

can you please upload your latest rpt file?
C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\Arma 3\

There is no rpt in the C:\Users\Mike\AppData\Local\Arma 3\ dir.
There is an rpt file in the C:\Users\Mike\Documents\Arma dir - which I have uploaded.

Oddly if I reset the Launcher to defaults (with no addons specified)- it then starts loading addons previously specified in Arma3 prior to 1.26 update. The second rpt file I uploaded refers to the state after Launcher reset to defaults. Note that after defaults have been set in the Launcher (everything cleared) - Arma3 then reads from and writes to the C:\Users\Mike\Documents\Arma 3\missions dir correctly and not the C:\Users\Mike\Documents\Arma folder mentioned in this ticket. So this issue can be resolved partially by resetting the Launcher to defaults. However this does not resolve the associated issue with correct addon loading since I would assume the settings in the launcher should override the settings in Arma3 > Configure > Expansions.

What is odd is that the C:\Users\Mike\Documents\Arma dir was created when the Launcher started. I found some Steam Workshop missions had been copied into that folder(?)! Anyway issue has been resolved by resetting the Launcher with no profile selected. Very odd problem.

This issue has been fixed. Please close ticket.
