DEV branch is resetting profile
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Every time I open up the dev branch (separate install) it resets the currently set profile. I tried with completely new profile files, I deleted all the stuff in the appdata, nothing helped. One thing I didn't try is to mess with the registry.

So basically I launch the dev build and I always get that welcome screen with default settings.

Let me know what information/files can I provide to help identifying the issue and/or if someone has a solution to the problem. {F27871}

we are sorry you are experiencing issues with our game.

Are you running any mods? If so please try to disable them. Should the problem occur again, please export your game log files from the launcher (again, without any mod).

Steps on how to export logs from ARMA 3 Launcher:

  1. Start ARMA 3 Launcher
  2. Click Options menu
  3. Drop down menu will appear
  4. Select: Prepare Arma Troubleshooting error and save those files
  5. A notification will pop up with the name of the generated file

Please note that it might take some time for files to collect.

Attach the generated files to the ticket. If the files are too big please use some free file sharing service.

Make sure to try to verify your game files via Steam.

Also, is this an issue for a Stable version?

Thank you

Thank you for the quick response!

Stable version works fine. I uploaded the report.
I just redownloaded the whole Dev Build (game updater), the problem is still present.

Are you using the Arma 3 Lauchner? I just noticed that the startup parameter for a custom profile is activated for me ( I never activated it myself) Maybe that caused the issue.

Yup, I tried with/without custom profile, does not work. I even deleted the registry entry which holds the latest profile (so it loads up the default one), still no luck.

It just takes the selected profile and rewrites (almost?) everything. Controls, video settings are affected, that's 100% sure. Must be some rare conflict of some sort. (Not happening to everyone on Dev Build)

i have the same problem

It's not happening anymore with today's Dev build.

Glad to hear that, please try to keep an eye on this, should the problem occur again, please let us know.

RC is resetting my profile. Any solutions guys? Shall I just destroy my registry or reinstall my system? :D

Sometimes now I cannot get trough the "Best place is to start at Bootcamp", if I click no, it changes the Intel part of the main menu, if I click yes it's either crashes or opens up the bootcamp mission selection with an error message.

Also, I can create a new profile from ingame, but I cannot edit the profile name. What's more I cannot delete existing profiles (asks if I'm sure, I click yes and nothing happens)

Sounds like you have some corrupted files in your game folder, have you checked the integrity of your local files via steam?

Gippo added a comment.Feb 13 2016, 9:53 PM

Obviously I checked every standard stuff. Looks like using a new profile path solves it (just latin characters) Will post if it still occurs.
Had no problem like this before... what's more the new profile files are actually created and written in that folder, but looks like the game is having a problem reading it.
