Arma Reforger July 20 Update Notes

The update for Bohemia Interactive’s hit military simulation game and gateway to Arma 4, Arma Reforger, is slated to release later today. While we eagerly await the full patch notes, here’s what we know.

Bohemia Interactive announced this update earlier today, mentioning that both Steam and Xbox game versions will be updated. They’ve scheduled a server downtime from 12:00 to 15:00 CET to facilitate this process.

While we’re still waiting for the official patch notes, the community has speculated about potential changes and improvements, such as bug fixes, connectivity, and modding advancements.

Known Issues

  • All vehicles will disappear after 10 minutes of not using them
  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Exploding on own placed mines while in a vehicle counts as Friendly Fire on DS
  • Most AIs in a group are inert during fight with multiple targets
  • Tracers have no color in night
  • Respawning on the radio in the vehicle will not allow player to use gadgets
  • Radial menu is empty after one GM player disconnects
  • Screen effects (from blood loss for example) are displayed over UI elements such as chat
  • Radio frequency defaults to 32 (or 38 for Soviets) no matter the group

Warning: 

  • 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

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
