Cannot unlock anything

Question

Hello everyone, I seem to be having trouble with the unlocking system. Every time I go to unlock a door, car, helicopter or anything with an unlocking system the code lock will literally load for about half a second or shorter then vanish. After it has vanished and I try to unlock what ever it is again the code lock will not load this time and it will stay like this constantly for that restart. It will do this every restart and has always been like this for my period of playing exile. I have played multiple servers which have all been the same and it is ruining my experience. I have reinstalled Arma 3 twice as well as exile so many time I don't even want to count. If anyone has any help for me it would be greatly appreciated.

I saw a post on this a while ago that resolved this issue for me. It seems that when you use Enter to select the Unlock option it bugs it out. Instead try using the Space Bar to select Unlock. It worked for me every time.

best bet is to use the custom key the devs setup. - works EVERY TIME!

 

do this:

start  arma

main menu

configure

keys

custom keys

set and MUST BE - custom key one

select a FREE key to use

save and problem be gone!

 

no need to exit out of exile/arma either - takes effect as soon as you save!

 

i had the 'u' key free, so i set 'custom key one' to 'u'.

 

now, ALL i have to do is walk up to a locked item, hit 'u' to either lock OR unlock!

 

this custom key was listed in the change logs...

 

good luck to ya!

Bit confused, i don't have an option for keys under the configure menu anywhere. do i need to enable something first? I've been unable to enter my vehicles without admin help all week.

no, you do have it!

arma

main menu -> configure -> controls

using pull-down menu titled 'show', select 'custom controls' -> select 'use action 1'

 

that's it!

 

see pix below....
