    Hi all,

    My friends having trouble with ACRE and JayArma2Lib and wondered if any of you guys are able to help, its all instaled and updated via six updater and TS is latest 3.03 version and all correct in the mod line.

    Now when he loads up the game he gets that annoying beeping all the time saying dsound.dll not connected or some error so all does not work.

    Thats my problem as he cant be arsed to sort it out so is lossing will to and i just no he will love the bravo server with you guys so im keen to help,

    Things tried so far;

    Complete removal of mod folders acre and jay2lib and reinstall via six, still same prob,
    reinstall dssound.dll 64bit, still the same beeping none connetion issue,

    Any ideas??

    Regards
    Dave..

    Is he running the beta? is he launching through a bat file? or six updater? I had the same problem with .bat files but I was able to fix it. Let me know

      all his doing is running his game from a desktop short cut, his arma is retail not steam, just thought to ask him if running admin will sort it but doubt it as i just do the same and all is good.

        if that shortcut is a .bat file then the problem is that he is not loading the beta patch file , he will have to alter the mod line

            I changed mine to be this

            "C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\Expansion\beta\Arma2OA.exe" -nosplash -emptyworld -beta=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion [email protected];@rest_of_mods

            Make sure he also changed the path to the game

                  ok, I cannot think of something else, he can also try copying the dll inside the beta folder if it is not already

                    Dave there is a different JayArmalib just for the beta. Have him open Six, ck the box at the top for beta and you will notice in your Bravo preset the different file of Jayarmalib. This might be his problem. Then do the usual updater actions of install or update if any of the files for beta, acre, and jayarmalib are yellow. Then have him create an icon using six as the launcher, and making sure the beta box is checked.

                    The new file for the beta is titled Jayarma2lib_new .

                        His comment and statements didn't indicate anything about beta usage. He didn't answer your post. Besides, 3rd party tech support is iffy at best. His friend needs to get on TS and allow the admins to walk him through what needs to be done to correct anything.

                          @Sarge - good points

                          If you are not launching through Six Updater for Bravo at this point you are asking for headaches IMNSHO.

                          As is posted elsewhere...make sure you open SU....like by clicking on this:

                          sixupdater://six.tacticalgamer.com/bravo/tgbravo.yml

                          Then click on the "Game Profile" tab and be sure the Beta box is checked. Then reselect the Bravo preset in the left pane...wait for it to reload (notice the jayarma2lib_new)...then launch game.

                          If you still have problems, get me on TS or another admin.

                              When I started reading about batch files and all the other stuff in the thread, I was asking myself, why isn't he just launching from six updater? I think I just found my new signature.
