  • Problem with US update 1.08

    I bought the US Atari version of ARMA Combat Operations about a week ago. I played through the single player campaign with minimal problems, and created a mission for myself. Once I felt I was a pretty skilled soldier, I decided it was time to join the online mayhem. I went to the official ARMA site and downloaded the first US 1.08 patch on their list. I tried to unzip/unpack it... Nothing. All it gave me was (winrar) a very long error message near the end of the extraction and (the default zipped folder program for windows) a message at the begining of the extraction that said
    "Unexpected end of the file"

    I went on to try every patch on their list, and the same thing happened every time. Is it my computer being an (for lack of a better word) idiot, or are the updates really corrupt. If the first, then what can I do about it? Re-install WinRAR? If the seconnd, then where can I get US update 1.08 that is not corrupt?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Await the moment for one, and only one, well aimed shot.

    You might be having trouble with your browser. Try a different one.

    You might be having trouble with your RAR application. Try a different one.

    If the above two don't work, send me an email through the link in my profile, and I'll reply with the file I used as an attachment.

      Thank you.
      I'm guessing it must be the browser then, since I used two different unpacking/unzipping applications. I'll download firefox and give it a shot.

        Hmm, I forgot that it was a 680MB download. I can't email an attachment that size. Have you tried using different mirrors? It's a zipped file, so try using a program that's not WinRAR (I have a personal distaste for it to boot). Windows can do it, and so can 7-zip, which were both able to unzip my copy just fine.

          Yeah, I tried the included Windows program first- WinRAR was my second resort; I downloaded it after Windows couldn't do it. I now share the distaste for WinRAR, as it does not like being removed from my computer :(
          I think I'll try this 7 zip.

          However, I'm now fairly confident, with two unzipping programs failing me, that it is the browser. I'll try Firefox again (maybe a few times) and then see if I.E. 7 can do the job. That is, if I can download that- I think I can get it for free on Yahoo.

          Well, be assured, if I ever get this working, you have another soldier for your ARMA ranks- From what I've heard, the singleplayer sucks compared to the multiplayer, and I loved the campaign- Especially the sniper mission at the hotel :)

          I'll tell you if I get it working.
