A3 launches Arma 3 in old version of game

  • When ever i join a server or launch Arma through the A3 Launcher the game will always launch in version 1.72. Even without mods loaded the game will still launch in old versions, I have tried updating launcher and i still have problem.

  • Do you have two versions of Arma3?

    • Open A3Launcher
    • Click "settings" on the top right
    • Check the "mods/download path" + below it your "arma3 Path"

    Should be drive location of your steam folder +

    SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Arma 3!Workshop (your mods folder)
    SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Arma 3 (your arma3 folder)


    If that is all good I would verify Arma3.

    • Open Steam
    • Click Library

    Right click on Arma 3 in your steam library > Properties > Local files > Verify integrity of game cache.

  • Yeah thank you, I had forgotten to delete the one of of my C drive and it was launching form C instead of my D drive.
