Title: Arma on an SSD
Post by: SGT E. Smith on July 13, 2021, 02:22:03 PM
If i uninstall Arma and re-install on to my SSD will it reset all of my saved controls?

It won't. Your Arma profile where all of your loadouts and controls are saved are in a separate folder, in a separate location on your PC.

Ok cool, gunna assume i dont have to worry about my mods either then right? Just reload them again through the launcher once its finished installing?

I would strongly advise backing your profile up, just incase.

It depends on where you have your mods, if you have them in the Arma 3 directory folder then maybe, if you have them in a folder separate from the Arma 3 directory then no.

I have all my mods just in my documents/Arma 3 mods folder. Im not sure if thats default or not. Ill just backup the whole thing to be on the safe side.

Thanks for the help.

If your mods are in your documents, then you are fine you just have to add the "Watched folder" into the launcher when it is reinstalled.

I back up all my profiles on SGT Morris' computer.   Let's keep that between us.
