  • Start up error

    Once i launch arma2 OA through addon sync it loads up to about 80% then shows up a warning saying

    "Addon 'Warfare2Vehicles' requires addon 'CAWheeled2_Kamaz'"

    I have googled this error and its only brining up people who have the error in a server i have the ability to join the TG alpha server but only on a few missions and its doing my head in now.

    I have attempted to uninstall both ARMA2 and OA with full reinstall and update of addon sync 2009 but the problem still exists and for some reason once i did the full reinstall i had combined arms with out having to transfer over all original ARMA2 files to my OA folder :s

    Both arma2 games are from steam incase it helps.

    Are you running both in "Combined Arms" configuration?

      How do you mean if your refering to copying all ARMA2 files into my OA folder then i have not done that.

        That would be your problem ;) The TG Alpha server is running Combined Arms. Some mission dont use CA assets but the ones that do will drop you quick if you dont have it set up.

          Moving files manually its generally a bad idea, breaks steam's auto updating and your registry (which breaks future installers and patches).

          The error message is an addon missing a dependency, both addons mentioned are from A2 (not OA). This is not an issue of not running combined, and the message is showing at start up, not server connect.

          It seems to me like you don't have a fully installed or updated arma2.

          I would suggest first making sure everything is in its correct folders - if you copied over arma2 content before it may still be there and should be deleted.
          Then verify the integrity of your games and run each one individually through steam - steam games aren't always fully installed and updated until you run them.
          Assuming you manage to run them both successfully, now try running combined ops

          http://robertsandiford.co.uk/ace_oa/
          your options for steam are:
          2-2 modline) either do it manually with a shortcut/Custom options in yoma/steam or use a launcher (11-3)
          2-3 symlink) this is like copying your files over, but the actual files don't move keeping everything working as it should

            I may have been off. But it appears to me that not running Combined Arms and trying to play on the Combined Arms server is the issue. He can connect for some games but not others. Sounds more like missing the CA stuff than normal ArmA stuff. If he was missing ArmA stuffz he wouldn't be able to jump in at all.


            Or am I just way off on this one Sandi?

                <20:37:56> "Sandiford": ok, can you still play the game, or just it kick you out?

                    I just recognised the error format, having screwed up far too many times myself :)
