I have a video of something like this happening if you want it. Although, the mission itself wasn't without errors.

I used Jump Out from a Little Bird, not HALO Jump although I had the option, because I was pretty low. I spawned in the round parachute (DC-10?), but I was in a HALO animation. It released me after hitting the ground. I now had a Open Chute action, but I was already on the ground. I used it to spawn the rectangle chute (MC-5) then used Get Out to release myself. The HALO animation disappeared.

I assume in the JDMT's case of the C-130 drop, he performed a proper HALO with the correct chute, so it might not be related.

Also, dying when you hit the ground happens every time in vanilla ArmA2 as well when you land on a sloped surface. This might be fixed, by allowDamage false when you go below 5 meters or transporting the player to the ground.

We just jumped out on an Op, it wasn't anything fancy, we had an MC-5 and a C-130.

I had this bug before on both Vanilla and ACE2.

After geting the blur effect, just pressing ESC and going to menu and ESC to go back into game solved every time.
