  1. Everytime I start the dedicated server with its server.cfg file and then open the game on the same computer I get this "Session Lost" message within a second of joining the server I did on my own computer. I have tried on different computers both launching game AND server on them, I've also tried to start the server on my own computer then have someone else join it and vice-versa SAME THING HAPPENS. I know it is an old game. It is not an answer to attest to such facts. Also is there an option to make a LAN server, something I can put on the server.cfg file? I am very pissed off this is happening. THINGS I'VE TRIED: REINSTALLING THE GAME AND ALL DLCS SEVERAL TIMES IN ORDER: arma 2, arma 2 oa, arma 2 baf, arma 2 pmc, arma 2 acr. server.cfg BattlEye = 0; verifySignatures = 0 through 2; equalModRequired = 0 and 1; loopback = true; this one was successful but only to connect to the dedicated server from the computer you're executing the dedicated server from. Which is pointless. Whether it is a BattlEye problem only or whatever, I have no clue. HELP
  2. I'm happy to announce my new and upcoming Soviet Russian terrain called "Tsarvana". This terrain's atmosphere and palate for buildings will be heavily influenced by Arma 2's data and will pay a certain homage to the existing Arma 2 map "Taviana". Additionally there will be custom structures implemented on the map for everyone to enjoy. The map and it's new models will all together be released as one package with a APL-SA license. This thread will be a discussion for personal thoughts on the upcoming map and WIP pics. The lore below is a wall of text but a good read if you wish to get a visual of what the terrain is about and how it may look before I post WIP pics, map layout and size details within the following weeks of this initial post.
  3. I've been wondering how to put an Arma 2 mod onto Arma 3 so that I can play it.

  5. I'm doing Live Play with Arma 2 Combined Arms (on Steam version), but the Battleye would block my Live app, so I want to start the game without Battleye. Then I found that: *If I start the game without Battleye and to load the Original ArmA 2 properly, I can not launch with any mods, which I have to; (in Steam Inventory, right click and "Start without Battleye") *If I start the game without Battleye and to launch with the mods I need, I can't load the Original Arma 2 properly, which I need; (in Steam Inventory, input some perimeters into the "Launch Options", and right click and "Start without Battleye") *If I launch with the mods I need and the Original Arma 2, I can't start the game without Battleye. (use the "_runA2CO.cmd" in the game folder). What can I do???

  7. This is my first post, so I'll begin by apologising for any rules I may break or any syntax issues. Secondly, Im Trying to remodel an entire Arma 3 unit for a mod I am creating. The model was imported to Object builder no worries, I then took my time to follow every tutorial I could get my hands on regarding rigging and setting the unit up to be a playable unit in game. Here is a list of everything that has been done up till now (Without knowing any extra steps): -LODs and Texture set up and working, tested in engine and in game. -Geometry working. -Memory components set up (Now these memory points were used for the Arma 2 example). -Weighting selection to allow for animations (So tedious). - model.cfg and config set up correctly (hopefully). Now when I load it into game, everything works fine, the class path, the textures, I can even control as player, and he moves around as normal. EXCEPT, the model remains in the default "T" stance and about half way through the floor. Does anyone know anywhere I could look, or give me any information on how I can make this work. (Please let me know if you need any more details, like images or my config and model.cfg)
  8. Hello, i was curious if it would be possible for someone to help me with a personal request/project. I was curious if someone could help (or voluntarily do themselves) me replace the US soldiers in the Cold War Rearmed^2 mod for ArmA 2? NOTE: I will only be using this replacement personally so do not worry about me turning around and uploading this to other websites for download. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could either help me or guide me to the right area to go about doing this. Thank you,
  9. I bought Arma 2 through the bistudio website years ago and I want to download the game again. I can't find a download page and I believe the support FAQ is outdated. I did not activate it on my steam account which is why I am using the site. Does anyone know if it is still downloadable through bistudio.com?
  10. I found many other topic and guide to porting Arma2 content to Arma3, but all these about units or maps, not MISSIONs. So I start this topic to discuss how to convert missions from Arma2. First thing first, I'm a beginner in this and I have more questions than advises. Don't start to porting missions if you are not familiar with Arma2 mission making and Arma3 mission making process! 0. I used CUP units for Arma2 and AiA maps. 1. I copied the arma2 mission's folder into arma3 missions folder. 2. I open the mission.sqm in an editor and change version=11 to version=12 3. I replace the old unit names to CUP classnames. Eg. USMC_Soldier_SL to CUP_B_USMC_Soldier_SL 4. I replace these classnames in the sqs and sqf scripts too. 5. I try to open the mission in Arma3 editor. If it complains to missing classnames, I find it in mission.sqm file and replace it to a CUP classname, or - if it's not exists - I try to find something similar. Maybe a classname from vanilla Arma3 ? I do it until editor can open the mission without warnings. 6. I try to preview the mission (play the mission) in mode where I can see the script errors on the screen. If any script drop an error message, I find it in the script file and try to solve it with googling for solution. Eg. like no more commands setVehicleInit or processInitCommands, so need solution to make the script working without these. It's a good start to looking for a newer version of that script. Eg there is an Arma3 version of good old UPSMON script. 7. Change to old briefing and tasking system to new one. 8. Remove the A2 healing system. I know it's too brief and there is a lot of specific questions. I guess this topic is a good tart. I got questions, so I start a FAQ here: Q: Do the scripts from A2 still work? A: Some of them yes, others not. Actually most of them will work under A3, than from A1. There are a few script command what is removed (it mentioned above). So you have to check all the script you used in a mission manually and one by one. If you used in A2 a third party script (eg UPSMON), the best solution to ask the original author and maybe there is an A3 version. But if the script was created by you, you have to check it line by line. What will not work in A2 scripts in A3: the A2 animations, some of the A2 classnames (you have to replace the CUP classnames), the A2 first aid module, most of the A2 other modules...etc

  12. Takistan Life Rise of South Dear ArmA 2 Community, today I officially release this Takistan Life mission to any community and player out there. This mission builds up on Takistan Life: Revolution but has been futher developed for the last 3.5 years by me. A few of you may know this mission from British Borders, those who don't know it can test it by searching for "armitxes.net" in the server filter. No clientside mods, only a 3k KB(!) missionfile with tons of features, and lot of space to extend such. A server-side mod which your clients will never notice is also included together with an included debug mode for modders and scripters. The Network It doesn't matter if you only want to play a few hours with your friends, or setup an own community. All Servers are connected to a network, this way we can grant you a fast setup with management tools and own saving system. Some stats are saved forever and shared between all servers. Others, such as faction, rank, nation, admin powers and vip status are dependend and manageable by the different server owners. The ArmA 3 reward system rewards you for not giving up the ArmA 2 servers by rewarding you in ArmA 3 once you get there! Account suspensions are managed by each community via BattlEye. Yet I provide some optional AC detections, within the mission and within the network, which can add specific players to an optional shared banlist which adds bans to either arma 2, arma 3 or both servers. Gameplay TKL:RoS allows you to the same things as in any other ArmA 2 Life server. The map is divided by 2 nations: North (lead by elected PM) and South (lead by the strongest group) with own modifiable laws each. There are 3 main factions: Law Enforcement, United Nations and Civilians - the network allows you to add up to 252 more factions with own ranks. There are 4 additional featured professions (Judge, Lawyer, PMC and Medic) and all the rest (Miner, Trader, Factory, Transport, etc.) Permissions Mission Files (.pbo): ANY COMMUNITY IS HEREBY ALLOWED TO USE THIS MISSION FOR IT'S SERVER. ALSO, YOU ARE HEREBY ALLOWED TO FULLY MODIFY AND RE-DISTRIBUTE ANY FORKED[!] VERSION OF THIS REPOSITORY BY GIVING CREDITS TO TONIC AND ARMITXES. @ArmiNET (Server-Sided-Mod): I hereby grant you to extend(!) any of the existent .sqf(!) files given in the @ArmiNET folder. You may add, modify and re-distribute files created by yourself. By using the files you agree to not decompile, replace, distribute or modify the ArmiNET.dll file contained in this folder in any way. Official Site, Installation Guide, Download & Serverlist https://armitxes.net/Projects/TakistanLife/ Source Code https://github.com/Armitxes/TakistanLife If you got any questions: ask. Big thanks to Tonic for all his initial work with the life missions, always list him in the credits! Cheers, Armitxes
  13. Hey! Quick question. I'm trying to set up a mission that uses ALICE 2 to spawn civs and traffic, but I don't want the player to be able to hitch a free ride off of them, as all the vehicles spawned are unlocked. How can I change this so they're all locked at spawn? Thanks!

Basically you'll keep respawning in a helicopter every 30 seconds then explode until the respawn is enabled. Currently if you kill the civilians (rebels), Citizen won't get mad at you. When playing in SP, an error will occur when you kill an OPFOR unit which is about to say a warcry - this DOESN'T affect the script or mission at all. Because units have disabled FSM, they take longer to react to combat. When clear the leader will stop and do nothing, continuing the mission allows the squad leader to continue. Thanks to...

  16. Runs great! here are my specs: iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2014) 3.5 GHz Intel Core i5 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 AMD Radeon R9 M295X 4096 MB Bohemia! I used to run Arma 3 on bootcamp. I was an avid player! ever since the arma 2 days. and before that flashpoint. I am so happy you guys released this for Mac. I am an Artist and pretty much have to use a Mac for my work. Having Arma 3 ported to Mac is absolutely amazing! please continue to develop it. I already got apex and have played it through bootcamp, It is awesome! please bring it to Mac. I don't use bootcamp anymore so this port is a dream come true. with my computer I run it at 1080p with all the settings maxed out. getting an average of 50fps in the open areas of Altis and around 32fps in Kavala. I am sure with some optimization it could be way better. although the fps doesn't go above 50 it feels way smoother than on bootcamp. boot camp with ultra settings I was getting around 50fps as well but it would stutter between 80fps down to 40fps which would cause screen tearing. please make the graphics fully accessible. I want to see what happens when things are bumped up some more. all and all Bohemia this is awesome! love you guys
  17. We are a new Invasion 1944 division for Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead and currently looking for new members, our missions consist of a PvE AI Campaign which is currently in production, and PvP missions against other divisions in our new community. Go ahead and add this account on Steam if you are interested, and talk with the commanding officer: http://steamcommunity.com/id/Siegfox/ Teamspeak 3 Server:
  18. This is one of my first scripts I ever made and I have spent no time to make it more condenced but it works and it's beautifal :D ! In this script it will spawn a US Destroyer (big boat), then attach an Apache to it along with a few other decorative props, and lastly a red, white, and blue smoke trail for your skywritting needs. This was originally in my admin menu I made so Its designed to be in a menu tree on my Action menu. I've removed what I could of that aspect so all you have to do is pick a way to execute this command however I will supply one way for you if you do not know how. This script has no real purpose other than something fun to show your friends. Originall inspiration was from the PapuWarfare test server, I saw Viba spawn in huge boat and fly it around, I was forever inspired to one day get that to work and I have surely built apawn it. <3 Viba and Papu, RIP Server. I also had an automatic cleanup feature in this scrip which you may not like since for testing reasons I had spam my hint box and you may just want to look at this work of art and it automatically removes it shortly afer you exit the vehicle. So here it is! STEPS: 1) Create a text document and save it as "flyingDestroyerT1.sqf" in the MP mission (or SP) folder that you will use in step 2 Example Directory: C:\Users\Joey\Documents\ArmA 2\MPMissions\ReWind%20ExampleMissionName.Chernarus 2) In your mission editor, add a playable unit. Under its initialization field paste this into it: family1 = _unit addAction ["<t color='#9A2EFE'>- </t><t color='#FF0000'>M</t><t color='#FFFFFF'>u</t><t color='#0000FF'>r</t><t color='#FF0000'>i</t><t color='#FFFFFF'>c</t><t color='#0000FF'>a</t> <t color='#FF0000'>A</t><t color='#FFFFFF'>i</t><t color='#0000FF'>r</t><t color='#FF0000'>l</t><t color='#FFFFFF'>i</t><t color='#0000FF'>n</t><t color='#FF0000'>e</t><t color='#FFFFFF'>s</t>", "flyingDestroyerT1.sqf"]; 3) In "flyingDestroyerT1.sqf" copy and paste The code below into the file and save it. ////////////////////////////////////// // // // The Real American Destroyer // // By: ReWind // // Steam: // http://steamcommunity.com/id/45645667867834534/ ////////////////////////////////////// //Identifing Player //Spawning the Apache on players position //Moving player in driver seat of Apache //Spawning Destroyer on players position //Attaching Destroyer to Apache //Getting player Direction before spawn //Telling player the direction they faced //Setting Apache and player direction where player looked _unit = _this select 0; _position = getPos _unit; // you can spawn this anywhere since your player is automatically moved to driver _vehicle = "BAF_Apache_AH1_D" createVehicle (_position); // You may change "BAF_Apache_AH1_D" to any vehicle classname you want and it will function the same _vehicle engineOn true; // False to spawn the vehicle off _unit moveInDriver _vehicle; // !!You NEED this otherwise there is no way to get into the driver seat!! _vehicle allowDamage true; // Set False to make the chopper indestructable (if you crash a heli while invincable it still often times explodes) _vehicle0 = "Land_Destroyer" createVehicle (_position); // There is also another boat I think it is called "Land_Fragetta" not sure but you can interchange them however the props will not allign properly _vehicle0 attachTo [_vehicle,[ 0, 0, 4.5]]; _vehicle0 setVectorDir[0,0,180]; _vehicle0 setDir 180; _direction = getDir _unit; hintSilent format["Based on the direction you were looking, the Object will spawn facing: %1 degrees",_direction]; _vehicle setDir (_direction); _unit setDir (_direction); //Adding other props to give detail _vehicleProp13 = "C130J_static_EP1" createVehicle (_position); _vehicleProp13 attachTo [_vehicle,[7,0,11.5]]; _vehicleProp14 = "C130J_static_EP1" createVehicle (_position); _vehicleProp14 attachTo [_vehicle,[-7,0,11.5]]; _vehicleProp13 setVectorDir[0,0,180]; _vehicleProp14 setVectorDir[0,0,180]; _vehicleProp13 setDir 180; _vehicleProp14 setDir 180; _vehicleProp1 = "FlagCarrierUSA_EP1" createVehicle (_position); _vehicleProp1 attachTo [_vehicle,[ 7.65, -25.22, 16.5]]; _vehicleProp2 = "FlagCarrierUSA_EP1" createVehicle (_position); _vehicleProp2 attachTo [_vehicle,[ -7.65, -25.22, 16.5]]; _vehicleProp3 = "FlagCarrierUSA_EP1" createVehicle (_position); _vehicleProp3 attachTo [_vehicle,[ 7.6, -27.82, 16.5]]; _vehicleProp4 = "FlagCarrierUSA_EP1" createVehicle (_position); _vehicleProp4 attachTo [_vehicle,[ -7.6, -27.82, 16.5]]; _vehicleProp5 = "FlagCarrierUSA_EP1" createVehicle (_position); _vehicleProp5 attachTo [_vehicle,[ 7.5, -31.3, 16.5]]; _vehicleProp6 = "FlagCarrierUSA_EP1" createVehicle (_position); _vehicleProp6 attachTo [_vehicle,[ -7.5, -31.3, 16.5]]; _vehicleProp7 = "FlagCarrierUSA_EP1" createVehicle (_position); _vehicleProp7 attachTo [_vehicle,[ 7.5, -33.9, 16.5]]; _vehicleProp8 = "FlagCarrierUSA_EP1" createVehicle (_position); _vehicleProp8 attachTo [_vehicle,[ -7.5, -33.9, 16.5]]; _vehicleProp9 = "FlagCarrierUSA_EP1" createVehicle (_position); _vehicleProp9 attachTo [_vehicle,[ 7.39, -37.38, 16.5]]; _vehicleProp10 = "FlagCarrierUSA_EP1" createVehicle (_position); _vehicleProp10 attachTo [_vehicle,[ -7.39, -37.38, 16.5]]; _vehicleProp11 = "FlagCarrierUSA_EP1" createVehicle (_position); _vehicleProp11 attachTo [_vehicle,[ 7.34, -39.28, 16.5]]; _vehicleProp12 = "FlagCarrierUSA_EP1" createVehicle (_position); _vehicleProp12 attachTo [_vehicle,[ -7.34, -39.28, 16.5]]; //Maintaining smokes when player is alive //Spawning Blue Smokes //Attaching Blue smokes to Apache even with back of destroyer //Starting cleanup, when vehicle is not active, smokes stop, props are then removed.

  19. Hi, I have looked and looked for a solution and I had to try this myself to save downloading around 15GB, my brother had Arma 2 Combined Operation on a Retail copy of the game and you can Install Arma 2 & Operation Arrowhead on steam with the disk. all you have to do is just make a few alterations when installing the disk, make sure that you start autorun and put in your steam that you own it on, or the CD key inside your case just install it to your steam common directory just keep the file name the same and take out where it say's BohemiaInteractive and install, now all you have to do now is to press the install button in steam and it will detect that there is Arma 2 in your steam game you just have to download an extra 2-3GB of the game to work on steam, then you can play.
  20. nevermind this answered, uh everything. no wonder i never post lol
  21. Hello, I have noticed Arma 2/OA ALT-TABBING slowly/with a delay and black screen in the process ever since i switched from Windows 7 to 10. A2/OA would ALWAYS alt-tab instantly while my PC was on Win7 and ever since switching to 10 these problems have started, this bothers me a lot as i like to be able to switch between things quickly. :( I have talked to a friend running Win10 and he is able to confirm A2 + some other games that he used to be able to alt-tab in/out of instantly on 7 being slow and delayed on Win10. I presume this is a microsoft issue, and it seems like there are some other people also experiencing similar issues with several games. Feel free to post in this steam discussion: http://steamcommunity.com/discussions/forum/1/541907867752526246/ I guess it's windowed mode for the time being, anyone else noticed this problem since switching to Windows 10?
  22. NOTE: This is for the STEAM EDITION. After playing Arma 3 for a while (quite long), i wanted to go back to Arma 2 and also I44 for a while, but I was having problems getting the DLCs to show properly, and a few error messages to go away. After trial and error, I manage to find the problems. Problem that I got and was solved(Can't remembered the exact message but the gist of it): Application Load error 5:00000065434 (If I remembered the error properly) MISSING STRING!!! Application/Game cannot be found. You installed the DLC, but it shows the LITE version of the DLC in your expansions menu. (This is actually due to though you installed the game in Steam, the content itself has not been integrated in Arma 2 directory which is why you need to run the DLC itself from Steam) Here Goes: 01. Install Arma 2 02. Run Game 03. Install Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead 04. Run Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead 05. Army of Czech Republic should start installing to A2OA. 06. Install Arma 2 British Armed Forces 07. Run Arma 2 British Armed Forces 08. British Armed Forces should start installing to A2OA. 09. Run Arma 2 Private Military Company 10. Private Military Company should start installing to A2OA. 11. Game should run with all DLCs properly. (Sequence of DLCs no longer matters after OA installation; Just make sure that you run the DLC from Steam first before running with other lanuchers or even OA itself. That means running the game British Armed Forces on Steam and not the Arma 2 or Arma 2 OA from Steam, for e.g.) For me, I use withSix to run my mods after that. Running the game first is just a way to initialize the running of some of the required installations. Hope this is useful to anyone having any problems on Arma 2 Steam. PS: If you manage to solve your problem from my instructions, do drop a reply so I can see that this topic is being useful. Thanks! :D
  23. Hello people of Arma 2. Are you still around? If so, then feel free to continue reading. I'm going to be nice and try to get personal in this message, so don't laugh. :P I was just wondering if anyone wanted to play on an extreme roleplaying Island Life Server? Then this is for you! We are currently looking for officers, civilians, gangs, etc. The TS is ultimategaming.ts.nfoservers.com if you want to check us out. is the Arma 2 server. You do need Island Life Mod, but if you join the TS, we will run you through on how to download it! Thanks for reading and I hope to see you soon! -Captain Leucifer (Emita Police Department)
  24. We would like to introduce a new initiative aimed at improving Arma 2 Experience. In a nutshell, result of this initiative should be small addon with various fixes and tweaks in existing game configuration files that can become part of the official distribution of the game. There are few key things necessary in order to make this initiative succesful and possible so if you are interested in participating please make sure to read more detailed overview below. Few key points: * only fixes of obvious bugs or missing definitions are within the scope of this initiative * all submitted changes must be under a license that allows Bohemia Interactive to freely include and distribute it * changes must not break any of the existing official missions and campaigns * kju is going to coordinate and submit resulting addon to Bohemia Interactive for final review
  25. Dear community, Steam is becoming very significant part of today's PC Gaming as well as it was crucial part of the success of Arma 2 / Operation Arrowhead. There are already many games that are simply Steam only but Bohemia Interactive so far tried to stay service agnostic as we did not like concept of enforcing our users in any direction. What is your opinion, should we make our games Steam only or provide Steam specific enhancements or not?
