Arma Reforger 0.9.8.53 Update Notes

Game

  • Added: Mines feature
  • Added: Gamecode support for per-projectile reloads for UGLs
  • Added: Lowering/raising the weapon in time crucial moments is now faster

  • Changed: Better dynamic stance handling
  • Changed: Enabled Door type navlinks to be automatically opened by vehicles
  • Changed: Unified way in which AIs climb to match the way players climb

Known Issues

  • 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.
  • Initiating PiP scope during weapon-switching animation results in the scope view being blacked out.
  • PiP scope turns black when switching between prone and crouched stance while aiming down sights (ADS).
  • Visual and audio effects of shooting might not be replicated for other players after picking up a dropped weapon.
  • Problems with looting dead bodies were encountered during testing and require investigation.
  • Players clip into the roof of a vehicle when exiting it if the server has low FPS.
  • In the event of a kick, the player returns to their previous character, potentially causing replication issues with shooting until they reconnect.
  • Base callsigns may be missing after reconnecting.
  • Issues with an inability to respawn at a specific base after death were encountered during testing and require investigation.
  • The spawn point of the radio operator may disappear from the deploy screen when they switch seats in vehicles.
  • Passengers in a vehicle may be invisible to other players after switching seats until they exit the vehicle.
  • Vehicle previews in the vehicle depot do not display properly while selecting a vehicle.
  • The game window briefly switches to full screen during loading screen transitions.
  • Attempting to unbind the “Rest Weapon” action in keybindings causes a crash.
  • The filter for modded entities in the Editor Entity browser is not functioning.
  • After enabling a previously disabled add-on, included missions are not displayed in the “Scenarios” tab until the game is restarted
  • Add-ons required for joining a modded server may be incorrectly displayed after opening the server browser for the first time after disconnecting
  • Modding: Community assets using TCModFuncs are not fully functional
  • Addon downloading gets sometimes stuck or fails when connecting to a server.
    • Addon download might get stuck if you try to download an older version of an addon you already have downloaded
  • If you are certain your download got stuck:
    • First try to restart the game and connect to the server again.
    • If it doesn’t help, cancel the download/connection process.
    • Try to initiate the connection to the same server again → You will see a list of addons that need to be downloaded/updated → Those are likely the addons causing the problem.
    • Go to Workshop and find the addons from the previous step and delete them.
    • Restart the game and connect to the same server again. The download should finish successfully.
    • After vaulting weapon inspection is not available
    • Motor pools are missing interaction. Workaround is to just build a vehicle depot.
