  • Arma 2 OA 1.60 RC

    Arma 2 OA 1.60 Release Candidate (Arma 2 1.11 and Arma 2: BAF 1.03 updates are also included). Unless there is any major showstopper found, this Release Candidate will become final 1.60 release sometime next week. http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?t=128298

    So the question is...how long will Steam users have to wait?

    Are the servers going to wait for the final to update?

      Hello ZAP44,

      I'll get in touch with my fellow Admins and hash out any issues. Barring any issues related to the update.
      We will strive to update to the servers as timely possible.

        So if we want to play on the TG servers...do not update until told to do so.

          That is correct Chief.

          We will make a separate post in our general ArmA thread when the update is applied.

            Hope you wait till after Steam updates. I think there has been issues in the past after Steam users didn't wait and used the patch if I'm not mistaken. You and Unk probably know more about it than me. Thanks

              ... does that mean I might be able to run ACRE?

                You CAN use non steam patches for the steam version of the game. Ive done it with the last few patches. There is a potential for errors so if you are generally on the safe side of things you should probably not do that.

                  Running the RC on the Steam versions IS NOT recommended by admin staff. We will be waiting for full release & waiting for the Steam release before we apply any updates to the Alpha or Bravo servers.

                    Re: Arma 2 OA 1.60 RC

                    I have ARMA2 on steam, just did a rebuilt and havent re-installed it yet....should I? Is ARMA 2 active on TG (or do I need another version/map pack, etc?). I'd like to get in a play with some TG guys if that's what's going on...I played on the BF3 servers and they are so much different than the rest. (Not like BF2, because BF3 is really BFBC3...but whatever)


                    TIA

                      @Kevlar - If you reinstall & let Steam keep you up to date you will always be able to play on Alpha server. It is stock ArmA2: Combined Operations. Missions are downloaded from the game server & maps are only added to the Bravo server (which runs all the ACE & ACRE mods & our own map pack). But you don't have to worry about any of that with the Alpha server. You may need a hand getting the Combinded Operations to run properly. Check the stickies for the guide on getting it set up.

                        Re: Arma 2 OA 1.60 RC

                        Welcome Kevlar, read up on what is needed for Arma2 on our servers in the Arma section of the Forums. We are running 2 servers in Combined Arms at the moment, and Project Reality is running PR:Arma also. You will find info for PR:Arma in the Project Reality area of the Forums.

                        Combined Arms is basically Arma2 and Operation Arrowhead joined together. We have Admins to help you with this.

                        Alpha server is Vanilla

                        Bravo Server is modded with ACE and ACRE mods. Which is supported thru Sixupdater. All info can be obtained on the Forums

                        PR:Arma server is running the PR mod and this is supported thru it's own set of Admins and Tech support.

                            Right now it seems Alpha is filling up most of the nights and then this switches to Bravo for awhile, but when the servers are seeded regularly, there is room for all.
