  • What do I need to get started with PR:ArmA?

    I got ArmA2 from that free promotion over the weekend. I'm downloading that now. What else do I need?

    Bad news is I do not think that will work for PR. If others will correct me if im wrong, but I believe you will need Arma2, the full game; Arma2 OA....Both of those together will be considered Combined Operations. Or I think if you spend a little extra you can get both of them for the price of one....not sure though.

    So again, Arma2 free will not work, you will need arma2 Combined Operations.

      Sorry, it's not "ArmA2 free", it's the full retail version - which I got for free via this deal :)

        you'll just need to get Operation Arrowhead, then you'll be ready to rock.

          Figures, GMG (where I got ArmA2) doesn't sell OA... wonder what the chances are it'll work with OA if I buy it somewhere else?

            Should work fine, might have to config registry or move directory files. The movement of the directory files is simple "combined" arms. Agin others with more knowledge can correct me.

              Any distrubution of arma will work with any distribution of OA with a bit of tinkering. Personally I have A2 from D2D and OA on steam. I'd definately recommend jumping on the TG arma server as well to get used to the game. I did that for the first time a few weeks ago, and i've already got a much better grasp on the game.

                Someone please tell me that PR:ArmA will ship with an installer (like the BF2 variety) instead of the SixUpdater madness currently used.

                Please?

                edit:
                Will PR:ArmA coexist with the current TG ArmA2 setup?

                  from what i've read yes the client will have an installer like PR:BF2 currently has.


                  judging by this sub-forum and the admin structure, it would seem PR:ARMA @TG and ARMA @TG are seperate entities. though i'm just making an educated guess

                    What I meant was the physical installation. Will it be relatively easy to switch between playing ArmA2 and PR:ArmA without a lot of file manipulation and such? (excuse the n00bness of the question, I am not up to snuff on how ArmA manages modifications)

                      There'll be a PR shortcut most likely that will keep it all seperate from the other mods you run.

                      Failing that, there's programs like ARMA Launcher (i'll find a link soon) which are easy to set up, where you can have different launch configurations.

                      so it short yes, they can co-exist and you can easily switch between the two

                        To confirm, PR:ArmA will have an installer and it will come with its own shortcut.

                          Yeah, as Socom said, it will be simple. PR gets a one hit installer and a simple shortcut. Easy.

                          @Ferluice, Whiskey knows how to play this game, I believe he was playing it long before even me! ;) But he will still suck!

                          @Whiskey:

                          Operation Arrowhead. Go get that, and it will become Combined Arms. That's all you need. There should be no fancy moving required as that version you downloaded is still just vanilla ArmA and you can set the install path yourself. As far as I know there should be zero issues.
