  • *** Required To play ArmA 2 at TG - Beta Patch Info

    As of Sept. 16, TG servers are now running patch 1.04, and NOT the beta anymore. please click here to get the latest patch.


    Download the 58972 patch HERE

    Install it and create a new shortcut, editing the target line to include the \beta\ and -mod=beta

    EG:

    "C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA2\beta\arma2.exe" -mod=beta


    Passwords for both servers are ONLY available here for now to ensure that EVERYONE gets patched up properly, as if it is done wrong you will crash.

    Let me know of any issues, and if anyone experiences a crash etc report it here please:

    Passwords:
    Alpha - jeepo=win
    Bravo - working?

    NOTE: Using another beta patch (other than 58972) for playing on TG servers is also fine for those of you who want to try them as long as they are NEWER/HIGHER IN NUMBER than 58972.

    Using STEAM.. I let the BETA Patch do it's install making it's beta folders etc.

    Then I had to Rename the REAL Arma2.exe , and copy over the ARMA2.exe beta to the original arma.exe location. Then I added the -mod=beta in my launch options (Along with my other mods)..

    I was getting a CANT Find Profile error then CTD the other way..

    I may be just doing something wrong with STEAM..but this is how I got it to work..

            Install the beta patch, do nothing to the set up of the stuff, go to "Add non-Steam Game", go to C:\Program Files\Steam\common\arma 2\beta and select that exe. Add it. Go to the shortcut in Steam and go to properties, go to "start in" and make it the root arma 2 folder, NOT the beta folder. Add -mod=beta too the target.
            That should work for anyone wondering. The "start in" part is VERY IMPORTANT and usually missed.

              Simplest way to have it work with steam is to install the patch then go to your Arma 2 root folder and take the shortcut from there. Add all your old parameters onto it and you're good to go. Note: If you've got the shortcut from 1 beta patch it'll work for all the others unless their directory changes.

                I suggest combining the two stickies on how to play ARMA 2 at TG. Two is confusing to the newcomer.

                        It is a bug with Google Chrome. If you put the link in internet explorer you should be able to connect to BI's server. If you do not wish to do this, you can download the patch with chrome at http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Arma_2:_Beta_Builds

                          Man, keeping up with this could be a problem when they bring out two new patches ON THE SAME DAY.
