Dev Branch Eden Editor crashes when clicking Open button
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Game Crashes to Desktop when simply clicking the Open button in Eden editor. No chance was given to select any particular map or mission.
Error Dialog:
D:\<ArmaProfiles...>\mission.sqm, line 7: Config: "" encountered instead of ','

This file was hand curated to remove addon dependency which we no longer use. I missed a , on the end of line character, invalidating this mission file. Once repaired by hand, this CTD disappears. It seems that there is insufficient Exception Handling around file enumeration within the Open Dialog. Same error in 2D editor. {F27991}


Legacy ID
Game Crash
Steps To Reproduce

Manually modify mission.sqm
Invalidate file by deleting a needed syntax
Open Arma
Open Editor (any)
Click Open

Additional Information

Instead of just fixing this, it would be nice to expose Addon requirements within the editor itself. If no object within mission depends on a given addon, please allow me to unselect it as a requirement within the editor.

Ditto here.

Here's a copy/paste of the error GUI dialog. CTRL-C over the error GUI and then paste elsewhere using CTRL-V. Copy & Paste via keyboard.


Arma 3

File C:\Users\roger\Documents\Arma 3\missions\Phoenix_Domination_V4G.Altis-20150605\mission.sqm, line 0: '.': '�' encountered instead of '='


Upon final exit, I get a further error:
Exit Code: 0x000000001 UNABLE_TO_INIT_DXGI

Likely an unrelated error.


this issue should be now fixed in the current Steam Dev as well as the RC. Could you please check it out. Please let us know if the issue is still present.

Thank you

Verified resolved. Not a very useful message for most users, but doesn't crash the game anymore. :)
