Profile settings wiped on game start
Assigned, WishlistPublic


When loading the game with an addon that contains an invalid function filepath my profileNamespace settings are gone.

Hopefully this issue can help to find the underlying cause of this behaviour, as I'm sure it's not specific to this scenario. However I can reproduce this 100% of the time in this way.


Legacy ID
Game Settings
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Create an addon and define a function in cfgFunctions
  2. Provide an invalid filepath so that the game can't find the file
  3. Load game, an error comes up about the file and all profileNamespace variables are wiped

Hello, could you please provide a addon showcasing this issue? Thank you.

Sorry adam, it seems I can no longer reproduce this with the same steps.

I think it must have been something relating to the specific addon I was loading before because I consistently reproduced it 6 times in a row.

I will attach the .vars.Arma3Profile file I had before it was wiped (yay for backups) and what I believe is the incorrectly packed addon I was using at the time.

Is there a way to retroactively make an issue private? I can't find one.
