Fix for missing map markers on Tanoa

« posted: Jun 12, 2016, 07:22 AM »
If you join a Tanoa server and there are no markers on the map, follow these steps to fix the problem:

  • Go back to main menu
  • Open the editor on Tanoa
  • Press "Play Scenario" in the bottom right
  • Once loaded, leave the editor and join back the server

EDIT: the bug has become more resilient, it is possible that this fix may not always work.

I've seen another fix...

You may also do the following:

* Exit the current game
* At the main menu go to [Configure]
* Then select [Game]
* Then select [Difficulty] tab
* Then select [Recruit]

Pretty sure it has something to do with the way the difficulty options are handled now ...

I thought I was going crazy ! no RPT errors and no map markers :P

No, at least not in regard to anything mentioned or documented.

If you look at the map - there are 2 options which show on the top right as "Disabled by Server" - that leads me to believe there's something like you say "undocumented" in the difficulty params that's blocking the map markers.

Exile guys having the same issue

Well i also think Bohemia have messed up something with the difficulty settings. But also if i change each setting on the server some players still have the problem. So the only thing we can do is wait and hope that the next update fix it.
