Known Issues

  • The bleeding icon is not visible in the inventory

  • All vehicles will disappear after 10 minutes of not using them

  • conf contents are deleted after leaving a server

  • Playing in the fullscreen can cut the bottom part of the UI information for the weapons and turrets

  • Deleting all dead bodies and destroyed vehicles with the GM can lead to the kick of all GMs from the server Workaround: Delete entities in smaller batches

  • Players are not able to finish the tutorial because the game does not register a player building a small bunker

  • Right-clicking when using GM will open an empty radial or it will center the cursor instead of opening the context menu

  • Some buildings/compositions can be built without a proper obstruction check making these buildings/compositions unusable

  • After enabling a previously disabled add-on, included missions are not displayed in the "Scenarios" tab until the game is restarted

  • Characters in the turrets sometimes start drifting away creating a surrealistic portrait of a man with really long arms holding a turret

  • Xbox - Using ADS, spriting, or opening the radial menu can be interrupted and the player will need to use the action for them again

  • Players can crash when switching from the Game Master server to a different server like a Conflict if they use Steam or Xbox overlay

  • Deleting objects/fortifications does not reimburse supplies when it was built from a supply truck but deleted from the camp's freebuilding mode

  • Players that reconnect to the server are missing rights to use ArmaVision and Building interface. The only way is to disconnect from the server and connect back

  • Spawning on the radio in the vehicle into the driver seat will not allow a player to control the vehicle until he changes the seat or leaves the vehicle and re-enters it

  • BTR is not working properly in the water

  • Players sometimes cannot join already existing groups on the server after they connect

  • Players reconnecting to the server are not joining the group where they were and need to rejoin the group

  • Players can soft-lock themself when joining a server with a mod that they reported. They need to cancel the mod report in the Workshop to be able to join the server

  • Some default gadgets are not saved as part of saved loadout in Conflict scenarios

  • Exploding on own placed mines while in a vehicle counts as Friendly Fire on DS

  • Respawning with the Save Loadout and dropping equipped items will corrupt the player model in Game Master and Combat Ops making parts of the body invisible

  • Most AIs in a group are inert during fights with multiple targets

  • For experimental server owners: The last save is always loaded when the dedicated server is started.
    If you don't want to load the latest save, delete the saves prior to starting the server.
    You can find the saves in this folder: <-profile path>/profile/.save/


  • Server performance can be greatly reduced when replicating a high number of characters (players + AIs), and this issue becomes more prominent with increased limits, making it difficult to handle 128 players and 200+ AIs.

    • Playing Everon Conflict with 128 players is not recommended, while Arland might be more feasible due to its smaller size and fewer AI spawns. Pure PvP without AIs could be a potential alternative for larger player counts.
