Welcome to the Community Issue Tracker!¶
- This is a free service - please use it in respect to other volunteers free time work.
- Versions older than the latest patch will be rejected.
This is what Bohemia Interactive has to say:
Have you compiled a list of fixed issues or implemented feature requests that have occurred since the community created CIT came into use?
This data would be useful to show new community members how well the CIT works or how receptive, as a studio, are to your community of users.
We have not. However, it is fairly easy for anyone to filter issue in CIT and see how much has been addressed.
CIT has become very important resource for us to gather feedback from our community.
How does BIS prioritize bugfixes/features? (What are the design procedures for picking what to fix or what to include)
Internally, we usually have a lot of obvious or critical issues to fix or implement.
Between those, selecting order or priorities mostly depends on available resources and also individual preference or interest.
The CIT is often looked at, and we use Votes as good indication of how important a particular fix is for our users.
Reference: Ask Bohemia about A2OA interview.

How to report a bug?¶
First please use the search feature in the top right to see if you issue or suggestion was already posted.
- Think of a clear and descriptive ticket name first.
- Be short and descriptive, use a bullet point step-by-step reproducibility report in this way (use the template):
- Obs(served): Describe briefly the behavior you see.
- Exp(ected result/behavior): Describe briefly the behavior you expect to see instead.
- Repro(udction steps): Bullet point list what one has to do for behavior to see.
- Providing a simple demo mission (explained by the repro steps) improves your chances considerably to have the issue looked at.
- For stability or performance issues upload as much as files described in attachments and fill out all the hardware and settings fields.
- Express opinions or do discussions at the forums and link them in the ticket.
- Due date is set by CIT managers and serves as a time frame for users to answer and when to review the ticket again.
- Priority is set by BI (if at all). It has little meaning in general.
- Reproduced be a second person - NOT the issue reporter.
Latest beta patch: OA 1.53 BETA.
- Betas for ArmA2 have been discontinued
- Please read the BI article. Downloads and changelog here
- Specify the exact build number in the title  or somewhere in the report, and use version BETA as Affected ArmA II version.
- Beta version are one number ahead: if you read 1.52.79100 in-game, that means 1.53 BETA
the version displays in the main screen, lower right
DOs and Don't DOs¶
Do set Due Date three months later when you open an ticket please.
Do use the [[ticket_template|template]] of Header, Observed, Expected and Repro key points in your new tickets
Do NOT assign issues to any person. This is a moderator job.
Do NOT set priority. Priority has meaning only at BI side.
Do NOT set the target version. Use the Affected ArmA II Version only.
Read the [[workflow]], if you want to understand the process.
