Known Issues

  • Invaders does not start if Arma 3 is launched with the -skipIntro or -world=Empty Startup Parameters.
  • Invaders does not start if Arma 3 is launched with mods that modify the main menu.
  • Sometimes pressing Space opens the Steam overlay; close the Steam overlay and click on a non-interactive part of the main menu.
    This might be related to Alt + ↹ Tab usage, ↹ Tab moving the focus and Space pressing the selected button.


The Invaders minigame can be opted out of (or back in) by executing the following code (for example with the Debug Console in the Eden Editor):

Opt out of Invaders Opt in to Invaders

In case Invaders is not live, you can still force a live toggle bypass to start it if you really want by executing this code:

Bypass live toggle (force Invaders on) Switch back to live toggle
//0 forces it off, 1 sets a 'lite' sale promotion mode profileNamespace setVariable ["BIN_ArmaInvadersOfflineBypass", 2]; saveProfileNamespace;
profileNamespace setVariable ["BIN_ArmaInvadersOfflineBypass", nil]; saveProfileNamespace;
