Bug exists also with 1.66.139494.

Here is a easy recipe for reproduce this issue:
- Have some mods installed to Arma3 Launcher, like:
- Have same mods installed to server (Windows, 1.48)
- Connect server. Load missing, which uses those mods and verify you can go to the Multiplayer setup.
- Exit game
- Remove one mod from Arma3 launcher, like RHSUSF
6)Connect server, load missing which uses those mods and you are kicked out from server.
From Arma3 console log:
18:50:23 Game Port: 2302, Steam Query Port: 2303
19:34:40 <user> uses modified data file
19:34:40 Player <user> connecting.
19:34:42 Player <user> connected (id=).
19:34:56 Player <user> disconnected.
19:35:43 <user> uses modified data file
19:35:43 Player <user> connecting.
19:35:44 Player <user> connected (id=).
19:36:03 Mission co@ 8 RHS ACE AB Saattue Valtatiellä read from bank.
19:36:03 Player <user> disconnected.
Also, there is no error show to the Arma3 game, nor I cannot found any hint from Arma3Server.rpt.
Proposed procedure (like already in Arma2:OA)
- Missing PBO / mod / file / reason for exit written to Arma3 console log with timestamp, player name and mission to be played.
- Error message to be shown to end user with missing PBO / mod / file / reason for exit.
I doubt this is permission issue. I'm logged in to Windows using normal domain account (non-admin) and using that account I'm able to access files from the network share. I'm running Arma3 without admin accounts.
Test #1 - Following test was made
using command prompt:
net use i: \\storage-server\share\path
the I copied local disk contains of the Arma3profiles to that folder path
Next I changed the arma3 shortcut to have -profiles=i:\arma3profiles instead of -profiles=C:\users\<local_account>\arma3profiles
Started Arma3 from the icon without profile issues. I also checked that the files in that path were accessed as the timestamp was updated. (Files at C:\users\<local_account>\arma3profiles were not).
Then removing the I: -drive using
net use i: /delete
Test #2 - \\UNC -share
When I opened Windows explorer then expanded Libraries (from left) and clicked
properties on the documents (still at the left) I got Documents Properties window. It shows two Library locations. First is My Documents, which is pointed to \\storage-server\share\path.
Next I changed the arma3 shortcut to have -profiles=\\storage-server\share\path\arma3profiles instead of -profiles=C:\users\<local_account>\arma3profiles
Same error message as in description.
--> Arma3 does not handle UNC paths, workaround is to store profile on local disk under c:\users\<local account>\somearma3directory and use -profile with the shortcut?
And just to clarify if I test
no access errors
directory is created, no access errors
directory is deleted, no access errors
This issue is still within 1.48 (Windows dedicated). When server is left on a multiplayer setup, in my server, it used about 17% CPU. Previous player signed off about more than 1 day ago.
CPU usage was dropped to a 3% after "#missions" was executed by server admin.
Wasn't there a timeout setting in ofp/arma/arma2 where it was possible for server to time out to mission selection if no other actions was selected in a pool for some time? If not, would this be possible to do after a last player is signed off?
