have you tried disabling Battleye in the launcher
or would I be able to run the previous battleye version that was working. To sanity test that current battleye version may be at fault
This may sound crazy and cheeky but all the official combat patrol server have BE enabled. What if one had BE disabled? would you learn anything?
thx LEX I have just deleted every battleye folder that I can find including the current arma 3 one. The arma3battleye.exe fails in the same way. Behind the failed message window is the battleye launcher window reporting

Have tried for a few hours. it has not been reproducible. Hope to try again in the next day or two, thx for info
Hi Adam thx for info I found dumps in another backup profile dir I had to create 6 months ago. The mdmp is 7-zip format that I think is compatible with WinRAR, if not I will try a different format. Stay frost, ElPablo
p.s. there is some info about the USB joystick in there that may be useful for another issue I have, yer yer I know 1 thing at a time!
Planet of the Apes - I love it!
The direct motherboard USB ports at the rear of my PC seam to work still, the front panel USB ports have the problem described above? So currently windows 10 has still fixed the USB problems
I got a USB game controller and the same result. The problem is still the same so is it my rig, windows 8.1 or arma 3. both controllers work on other games. This has got to bean an arma3 bug, plz fix or provide a workaround. merry xmas
Update - Window 10 fixed the issue. Until day when it auto updated last night. As I first launched the game I was given a prompt about how to enable (Game Bar), with Win key + G. This seams to be a xbox app feature to record game footage similar to Nvidia Shadowplay. As the prompt box appeared there was a check box on the prompt allowing you to not display this message again which I moved the mouse to select it and it disappeared. I searched win setting to disable this GameDVR feature of xbox app, which did not work. I also tried to uninstall xbox app to no avail. So my USB controller problem has been reintroduced by windows 10 update. The controller loss is different and is almost instant. weirdly I can view, operate none flight assigned buttons, but when I hit the gas and climb it goes wonky as soon as I get off the ground. if I don't crash immediately and just hover a few seconds or so the controlled comes back for a second or two. I will try a few more settings and disable windows stuff and retest. I can not believe I just lost flight controls again.
ok if a 'keep usb joystick alive' check box can't be put into the launcher. Could the joystick config be put in a separate file that can symbolic link to the profile. This lose of operation in my opinion is caused by some process as the escape key is hit to respawn/reconfigure that arma or windows is handling. A helper service app with the sole purpose of keeping this usb connection visible could be run as a service on CPU's like mine where this problem exists. Does anyone know exactly what happens to the engine when ESC is pressed on the keyboard? in terms of writes/file operations/client and server comms/location and loadout info/steam overlay/windows OS listeners/third party software.
k thx,? would dissabiling search or charms be useful ? as some times when i tab out of arma these wonderful windows helper tools are displying
could this be related to the save option briefly appearing as an option before greying out.
i.e. play game and all is well, press escape to configure/abort/continue effectivly pauseing the client. notice save is a selectable option breifly before the white text greys out to become un-selectable (could this still trigger a save event or re-initialise some thing loosing scope on the USB controller)
Is there i process catcher for win 8.1 that i can attach to the process tree/stack to gather data
1.when the USB works after a configure attempt
2.when the configure attempt looses the USB controller
A forced load workaround work be nice how can I tell arma 3 to go look at my working config in DIR? X and keep it loaded (or define and (you better bloody keep) on start up)
Hurry up with some code dude I can test it with your directive and relay what info/Shite you need (Priority 1 you sleep at the weekend if your lucky)
Up voted because I can! Still waiting its been Ten minutes and still no resolve, get to it soldier!
had issues getting two files that are not the same, i diffed them with linux diff, the latest is @profile-latest
and just to be clear
'DO NOT save your controls configuration'
does this mean clicking ok to exit the config as save is not an option?
'If it happens again without saving your controls try saving your profile file before it happens and save it once again after it happens'
is this with arma still running or quiting arma then saving?
I have drowned alot probally 40% of the 100 times i have tried. The audio does not always make the gasping sound upon re-surface.
Whoop yahoooo! we could be on the way to a Linux and Mac port. My work here is done, over and out.
To all developers its time please to give back to the Linux community.
Yep! would be a very nice feature and used by many (willing to help test)
Agreed, same here. Its hard to stay alive. Its like the surface is always just out of reach for the character, but the visuals suggest that the character is above the waterline. Is this a measurement glitch?
