Connecting to PX4 via Sky-Drones smartlink, QGroundControl Parameters get messed up

All parameters work when using the pixhawk via usb connection or the Ultra Long Range Radio Modem RFD 868x-EU. Issue arises when I want to connect via the Sky-Drones Smartlink using the CommsLink tab. I followed all of the instructions on their website. An array of error messages for almost every parameter I have changed arises. The main issue is that SYS_CTRL_ALLOC 1 no longer works, despite it being shown in the parameters tab and active, the Actuators tab is no longer there. Some parameters also just fully disappeared, with some reappearing when I use the QGroundControl daily version but not all of them. I have tried various restarts, firmware resets, and changes to QGroundControl, but to no avail. Does anyone have any experience with this issue and could help me out?
