  1. Hey guys, I'm posting an old mission file with scripts here that I created some years ago for 3 player co-op LAN. I decided I'll release it here if someone wants to check it out (if anyone still plays ArmA2). The mission was inspired by Escape from Chernarus coop mission. Though it is not finished, there is no way to complete the mission (didn't have time to add the final mission objectives back then) but we found great fun playing it with friends. Feel free to modify/use the scripts/mission as your own missions. I believe the revive scripts are the only scripts I copied from someone else, everything else is written by me. There could be some optimization in the scripts but framerate-wise on server I had no problems. (I lacked the skills back then to script properly) It does also use some addons I downloaded off armaholic but can't remember which ones (but I believe they are partially shown in the mission.sqm file if I don't remember wrong) Moderators move this topic to an another forum if needed as this mission cannot be completed. I couldn't find any "editor" related forum where I could release scripts/mission files Only reason I post this here is if someone wants to use the scripts on their ArmA2 or ArmA3 missions. Though you need to modify them for ArmA3 a bit, like different building names to spawn loot in etc. And no, it's not zombies, they are ruthless AI squads that run over you if you stay in one position minute too long. (if they spot you, there's a small stealth element) Dropbox download link, includes .pbo and mission files: https://www.dropbox.com/s/vwu50z1eacmk0s6/Panau.lingor.zip?dl=0

    Cannot install ArmA2 (win7)

    Yeah it works good now, nothing is missing and game runs smooth. The patches installed also without errors \o/

    Cannot install ArmA2 (win7)

    No, I have fresh windows install and haven't installed any ArmAs on this yet. I try the vista laptop install first, before switching DVD drive. First thing I noticed in the installer is that the filenames are lowercase on vista, on this windows 7 they were uppercase EDIT: and on vista the filenames "uninstall.exe" is actually "uninstall.exe", not "uninstal.exe" like on this pc There's a problem with my DVD drive then, I guess? ---------- Post added at 10:09 ---------- Previous post was at 09:38 ---------- Sorry for the double post but it installed now properly on windows 7 when I switched the DVD drive to another and the game works like it's supposed to work. So I guess the other DVD drive didn't support ArmA2 DVD format or something

    I'll try using another DVD drive from my second PC and see if that does any difference. If not, I'll try installing it on vista laptop
  5. I've tried everything but I can't install ArmA2 properly on windows 7. The game is by 505 Games, bought from Finland. It did install on windows XP years ago without any problems if I remember correctly I googled hours for info off the internet but none of them helped I ran the setup off the DVD but the installation failed at the end saying "could not find F:\uninstall.exe" or so. I copied the whole content of the DVD to harddisk and tried again, same error. There was "UNINSTAL.EXE" and "UNINSTAL.CSV", I renamed them to "UNINSTALL.EXE" and "UNINSTALL.CSV" (note the missing 'L'). I ran the setup again, now it went past uninstall.exe, hanged for 10 seconds at uninstall.csv, after that the setup finished normally... started the game and it said "Addon 'CAA10' requires addon 'CAWeapons'", I pressed OK and the game loaded. But everything was missing from the game, at the menu screen it gave error "startup.sqs is missing" or something. I tried editing profile but all the faces were missing, I tried mission editor but there wasn't any islands on the island selection menu. I disabled firewall and antiviruses, I don't have UAC enabled and I did run setup and game as administrator but no luck. I did 6 re-installs but it didn't help either. I also tried patching with different patches but while patching it gave error something like this: "AIR2.PBO.BI.BISIGN.UPD cannot be applied, error xdelta3 returned error code: 1". My DVD drive firmware is up to date. I tried also cleaning the ArmA2 DVD surface but it didn't help either. Nothing just seems to work, does anyone have any idea how can I get it to install properly?
