Frequently Asked Questions

Why can't I play in Single Player anymore?

Single player has a lot of issues atm, mostly to do with respawning. We simply haven't had the time to look into it but plan to in the near future; after which Single Player mode will be reactivated.

Nothing happens after mission starts, no "New Game/Load Game" menu appears?

Another mod you have loaded is causing a problem, remove all of them apart from ACE, CBA and Overthrow then try again. You can re-enable mods one by one to find which one is the issue.
