Now that Task Force Radio is being used on the Zeus server and is optionally used on the Lythium server, players will run into some of the common issues. Listed here are some of the common issues and solutions.

Error 1 - Error Nickname already in use.
This is one of the most common errors. Solutions are listed in the order you should try, to fix the error.
  • Make sure that your Arma profile name does not have any spaces at the beginning or end.
  • Remove any special characters in your Arma profile name. It is best to use an Arma name composed of Letters (aA - zZ), Numbers (0-9), and simple separators (_ ; - ; space).
  • Remove Phonetic name in TS. In TS select "Self" from the main menu; Click "Set Phonetic Nickname"; remove any value in the "Enter Phonetic Nickname field"; Click "Ok".
  • Remove any "." (Periods) or "," (Commas) from your in-game name.
For help in changing your Arma profile name we have a forum post "Changing your Profile Name" that will walk you through step by step.

Error 2 - Caps Lock Key does not work
  • Make sure Caps Lock key is not used for push to talk in TeamSpeak
  • Turn off voice over network (VON) in ARMA 3 or change key to different than Caps Lock (to avoid voice doubling).
  • It is possible due to a speciality keyboard the Caps Lock code is not standard. Try to changing the keybinding.
    1. Select Configure -> Controls from the Main Menu.
    2. Click the Configure Addons button in the lower right of the dialog.
    3. Select the name of the addon you'd like to configure from the drop-down menu.
    4. Double click any action to change the key assigned to it.
Error 3 - "Invalid Parameter size"
  • When you join the server with TFAR enabled, TFAR will match your TeamSpeak Nickname to your in game profile name. TeamSpeak does not support names less than 3 characters. The only solution at this time is to change your Arma profile name to be at least 3 characters.
  • Remove Phonetic name in TS (or minimully set it to at least 3 characters). In TS select "Self" from the main menu; Click "Set Phonetic Nickname"; remove any value in the "Enter Phonetic Nickname field"; Click "Ok".
For help in changing your Arma profile name read "Changing your Profile Name" that will walk you through step by step.

Error 4 - "Pipe Closed by TeamSpeak" or "Pipe error 230"
  • In TS select Tools>Options>Addons;
  • Locate Task Force Arma 3 Radio in the list of addons. Click the "Enabled" button (which will disable it; If it is already disabled skip to next step);
  • Click "Disabled" to enable it.;
  • Click Ok to exit the options screen.
If you are getting an error that is not listed here speak to an Admin in TeamSpeak and we can try to help find a solution.
