I got OA gifted from a friend on gamersgate.
I had Arma II on DVD for some time now. I downloaded OA and i manage to install Arma II plus the 1.07 Patch just fine. When trying to install OA i get an error telling me that a CRC did not match for file mics3.pbo.bi.bisign
I looked up a couple of topics about this CRC errors, but none helped me so far. Most said about returning the DVD, but re-downloading the 7,5gb takes me about 18 Hours. I want to avoid that.
What can i do?

If the install files are corrupted I don't think there's much else you can do but re-download.

I have got the same problem now. I uninstalled arma 2 and operation arrowhead to clean the game up. I install arma 2 and 1.09 patch and after that I install operation arrowhead from a standalone dvd but every time I do it my computer frezes at sound.pbo. I tried to extract that file from dvd but nothing works. I tried to install the game on a mobile hard drive on my second pc. It worked but my second pc is too old for arma and copying arma2oa installed on my mobile hard drive doesn't work. I've been playing this game for almost 2 years and I can't play it no more! Dammit! Do I realy have to buy another one arrowhead dvd? Maybe it will support bis XD What the hell is going on with my game??

Hope this is the correct place. BAF and PMC will not install
Had uninstalled all games with uninstall WIN7 utility do to a game crash. C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2
I removed user profiles C:\Users\***name***\Documents\ArmA 2
Removed addons sixupdater etc.
Restarted computer.

I then installed arma2 Disk started game saved then exited.
did the same for arma2 OA disk no problems all ok.

I did the patches to 1.54 all ok then went to install BAF the software unpacks and an install screen starts but then crashes the same for PMC.

I carried on patching the BAF light doesnt install from patches has anyone got any ideas Ive reinstalled the dam game 8 times trying different things, I have made sure adminstrator was on and virus software off fire wall off. HELP please.
Could it be a registry file left behind preventing re installation? if so where would I look.
I have even bought 4 more copies of the baf and pmc from different locations with same error.

I have Arma2 1.11 and Arma2 OA 1.60 already installed and working as Combined Operations. I have just installed BAF and PMC only addons from the ArmA 2 Reinforcements DVD in my A2 OA folder. Now, after installation I applied the patch 1.60 again which I dowloading from the official ArmA 2 website. But as the setup comes down to update the setup, this error interrupts the update...

Error found in file PMC\Addons\dubbingradio_pmc.pbo (676c7914!=62c927dc)
Some error occurred during patch installation.
Patch file is probably dammaged. You may need to download it again.
Error in file 1.02, phase 10.

I have download the patch twice, one from torrents and other today from the official Arma2 website, I have updated the Arma 2 and OA to 1.11 and 1.60, respectively from this patch but now can't update official addons.

Now, when I try to run the game, this error shows up

Failed to load file "e:\Bohemia Interactive\Arma 2 OA\PMC\addons\air_pmc.pbo" - decryption of headers failed.

Anyone? any ideas? what I am doing wrong here??

So you installed only the DLC from RFT?

If so best to contact BI support/Dwarden.

It seems RFT has some issues working together with OA/CO, as one can read many people having such issues.

Yes, only the DLCs, I already have Arma2,OA with 1.60 updated and working...

The error message in the title is what i still get after i had steam check my game files five times.
Each time a small file is downloaded but that obviously doesn't fix my problem.

I have a retail ArmA II and have bought the Arrowhead expansion on Steam.

My system is a Phenom II x6 T1100 on a Asus Crosshair IV Mainboard, 16 GB Corsair 1333 DDR3 Ram, the graphics card is a ATI HD6950 with 2GB VDDR5,
I have a 120 GB SSD system disk and 3 1TB samsung HD's in a RAID5, The OS is Win7/64 Ult. and my AV is Bitdefender.

Needless to say that ArmA II OA is the only Software which troubles me on this system, even Cliffs of Dover is running well.

Help please.

SOLVED!
I did a complete uninstall of ArmAII and OA and reinstalled OD per Steam -> it works now.

Hey all. Just wondering, I've downloaded the free version and gone to install it (after unzipping) and it says it is missing a .dll file.

The error message that comes up is:
"This application failed to start because X3DAudio1_6.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."
-It says this every time (even after re-downloading).

The readme file says to re-install it and should be fine, but to no avail and instead, has the same issue. I tried a re-downloading too, but no.

Any idea?

Win7 and Norton did some update yesterday evening. The game was working fine until 6pm and corrupted the Arma 2 / Oa Game Blocking access to Net etc.
Game would start then crash or let me load into online game then crash. Found Norton blocking access to game and servers saying it was a virus. Removed block still no good Removed the Norton Stuff with removal tool.
Reboot still crashing.
Un installed arma 2 and Arma oa
Re boot.
Fresh install Main drive c is not used for software all software installed to drive F.
Ran arma 2 saved game.
Installed Oa ran game saved ok
ARMA 2 Operation Arrowhead Patch 1.50-1.56 to 1.57 all good. Game runs ok.

Then downloaded fresh copy BAF from sprocket.
Then I open the BAF installer / zip file it unpacks then arma 2 baf image shows then crashes. Does the same for PMC.
I went through this before and cant remember the fix.
If someone can help would be great Im waiting for sprocket to reply as well.

Sounds like alot going for you there BOSSMANSHEILD, phew you got me all tired just reading what you did, lol

But install goes like this:

1. install arma2
get ingame, then get out- (best way it to just hope in the sp editor for a quick shoot)
2. patch Arma2 to 1.05 (some say you dont need to do this as the 1.60 patch will do it) just do it worked for me lat time I reinstalled.
3. Install OA into Arma2 directory.
4. Patch game with latest patch which is 1.60
get ingame you should be good.
5. install the other DLCS
and it should run.

I dont have any of the other DLC's like PMC, or BAF, just the light versions you get with OA.

hope that helps.

I have no problems running Arma 2, but when I try to run OA I first receive this error

"No entry 'bin\config.bin/cfgIngameUI/MPTable.shadow'

then the screen goes black, like its about to load the game and I get this error:

"Error compiling pixel shader PSSpecularAlpha:0"

Does anyone have any suggestions? I scoured this forum, but didn't find what I was looking for.

I managed to figure out what files were corrupt on my arma 2 folder. I unzipped every .gz file into separate folders manually using winrar and checking to see it could finish uncompressing. Now I'm missing a few files from Operation Arrowhead, and I'm not sure which ones. I got to 80% of the installation and it stopped at this directory:
ArmA 2- Operation Arrowhead\OperationArrowhead\Expansion\Addons\structures_e.pbo

I downloaded this from amazon, so I don't think I have sprocket.exe to verify my downloads

So I just bought ArmAII and OA via Steam, while ArmAII works fine, when ever I trying run OA, right before to game boots up i get this error (No entry 'bin\config.bin/CfgInGameUI/MPTable.shadow') I press ok and it starts booting up but then i get this ( Errpe compiling pixel shader PSSpecularAlpha:0) then the game crashes. I have redownloaded it 4 times and i still get the same problem. Its not my computers fault, im running a customized Alienware M14x gaming laptop with the works. I've played both portal games, deadspace2, and WoW(this the highest graphics option) and they run fine.

This stresses me out because idk what to do. I payed $30 for an incomplete file. it like buying a car and they don't give you the engine.

Help please, I guessing i'm going to need to copy paste the file manually because Steam is to retarded to give it to me

I just bought the retail CO from the bistore yesterday. Spent all night downloading A2, go to install this morning, put in key, then get an read file error saying that Battleye.exe is missing.

Google hasn't turned up results, and searching brings up everything else. What do I do?

ETA: I believe I fixed it. I had left the sprocket downloader open. Once I hit stop and closed it, I was able to finish installation.

Downloaded OA from the Bis store. When I try to install I get an error Message that says "file read error: C:\Users\Jman\Documents\ARMA2Patch_1_09.exe.xz"

On the setup window it says "source: C:\Users\Jman\Documents\ARMA2Patch_1_09.exe.xz"

Am I missing something? This file does not exist. Is it coming from the OA install? Do I need to download something else oris my install corrupted. The sproket window said file missing but it also said it was at 100%.

When I installed the game, and tried starting it up, it told me that smething was corrupted during the download/install. So I verified the game cache, it said a single file was missing, but it wouldn't downlad the file, and I tried this several times. So I finally decided to re-install the game, still didn't work. Idk what t d, if anybody can help.

Ps. My "O" key is a little messed up, so that's why some of my words are a little messed up.

Hi,
I have installed arma2 and the 3-in-1 arma 2 OA installer (also having BAF+PMC DLCs in it) from my Arma X retail box.
But my version is coming up as 1.59.xx95 (dont remember xx :| )

So, can I apply the v.1.60 update directly? or should I install the arma 2 patch v.1.11 first and then install v.1.60 patch?

Also, I got to see this error message just at the end of installing disc 4 (disc for OA 3-in-1 installer):http://i46.tinypic.com/2co61pe.png (215 kB)

Is it normal?

UPDATE: I saw this (http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=15831) and now i got it :D

but ssup with the error message(in the screenshot above)? :|

I recently bought Arma 2 from Amazon today, and i fully downloaded Arma 2 & Operation Arrowhead. As I was installing, it asked for a CD-Key. I downloaded the game straight from Amazon, so I didn't get the actual game. It says find it in the back of my field manual. But i don't know if i even have one. Can someone please help me out with downloading!

Presumably you should have received your CD key in an email from Amazon, we have nothing to do with them or their distribution system so I can only suggest you contact them directly.

When I try to open Arma 2: Combined Operations it just opens a window with lines of code then disappears, and the game doesnt open. Also, when I try to open Arma 2: Arrowhead it comes up with 2 errors:
1. Error with bin\Config.bin/CfgInGameUI/MPTable.shadow
2. Error compiling pixel shader PSSpecularAlpha:0
Should I try to download Arrowhead again or does anyone have anyother method of fixing this as its preventing me from playing DayZ?

It sounds like a corrupt download you're saying you've tried both manually downloading the files as well as using Sprocket to download them? You can check your files by using Quickpar (http://www.quickpar.org.uk/)and this par file (http://www.solidfiles.com/d/01c9f2a1d1/), should end up like so:

I did that and all files came up green and so I reinstalled and perfect. I'm thinking I have not used the new downloads, just an old corrupt one (shakes head)

But with the Operation Arrowhead DVD, first comes the autostart menu then i hit install and after a short period i get an typical "all explaining" :j: Windows crash message "Arma setup has encountered a problem.. bla bla bla" in more information it says: AppName: setup.exe AppVer: 2.0.2.0 ModName: setup.exe ModVer: 2.0.2.0 Offset: 00d4f25b

With the DVD from the second copy it says the same allthought the dvd worked on the second pc.

Any ideas?

Hello,
I got a really big Problem. I actually bought "Arma 2: Combined Operations" at Amazon. As I came back from the post office I just throw the DVD "Arma 2 Black Edition" in my DVD reader. My Computer totally freezes and and a blue error sreen appeared. He booted up again and at the Windows start sign he just crashed and this repeated evertime until I just took the DVD out.

So here is what I tried out: I put a other DVD in. Worked. Nothing crashed.
Autorun blocked. Still crashes.
Save Mode from Windows. Same as allways.

Im not a Computer Pro but I can do allot if someone explains me it.

Im running Windows 7.

thx If someone helps me !
I will try out all!

Can you access another PC and copy the contents of the DVD to a flashdrive and then install from that? Alternatively see if there's an updated firmware for your DVD drive? And/or updates system drivers for your motherboard?

I'll try and make this as brief as i can. I just recently developed an issue that involves a Beta Patch that, for whatever reason, I installed a couple of months back. I never had an issue so I just left it alone. At least until this week.
For reasons unknown to me right now, I can no longer launch the game using my normal A2 CO shortcut and now all of a sudden I have to use a shortcut for the Beta itself. The version and Beta currently installed are 1.62.96751
The problem with using the Beta Patch is that Ace 2 does not work. It loads and all the addons for it appear and can be used, but items like Grenades, flashbangs, medical items, do not work at all. I can throw 100 grenades and a) They do not visually appear in game and b) Do not detonate.
Si my question is this, in order to remove the patch, can I just uninstall Op Arrowhead and everything else that came afterward OR am I going to need to do a complete uninstall of the original Arma 2 game also?

The reason I ask is b/c I no longer have the original Arma 2 disc, however, Operation Arrowhead, British Forces, Czech forces, etc, I bought off of GamersGate and can still download and reinstall.
Also, I'm not really in a position where i can purchase the original again at this time. If I could, I would. But I can't so that's what brings me here now. I hate not being able to use ACE, but I don't want to uninstall anything that's going to cause the entire game to not work either.
Thanks for any advice anyone has on the subject.

EDIT- Or, would i be better off installing the newest Beta Patch also? Could that work?

@<hidden>:
Beta patches should not effect in any way the current version of the game or mess with any of its files, they are located in a folder that will be loaded only if you run the included beta shortcut. Only problem that I know a beta patch has affected the game was in older versions, when running the beta uninstaller it sometimes removed core files. Best way to uninstall a beta is to just delete the beta directory inside the expansions folder. And don't install beta over beta, always remove first.
Also, I had some strange problems with ArmA2CO once and I tracked it down to a beta of ArmA2 (beta folder inside base game folder). For some strange reason the beta folder will somehow autoload and interfere with the game. Remove any ArmA2 beta.

@<hidden>:
"c:\ program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead\expansion\addons\dubbingradio_epbo expected 193371979b got 164495360" points to a corrupted download from steam of game files. Select verify game cache to repair any broken files.

I would like to explain in detail as to what I did to solve this. That way if someone is having the same problem they can use this as a reference.

The file that was giving me problems was the takistan_data_layers. I navigated to the folder where the game downloaded to and went to the exact folder where the file was/is. C:\Users\Public\Documents\Amazon Games & Software\ARMAArrowhead\OperationArrowhead\Addons.

I found the file and noticed that it was Gzip file. So it was named; takistan_data_layers.pbo.gz I copied it over to my documents and when I tried to extract it I got a message from WinRaR telling me that it was corrupt. So what I did was ask Günter to send me his file that he had. Now keep in mind that the file was ONLY the .pbo AND it was NOT in a folder. So the .pbo was zipped only.

I zipped up the file that Günter sent and named the zipped file; takistan_data_layers.pbo and moved it over where the corrupt one came out of: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Amazon Games & Software\ARMAArrowhead\OperationArrowhead\Addons. I didn't have to name the file ending with the .gz because WinRAR "associates" that paticular file as a .gz so even though I used WinRar and zipped it up as a .rar, all I had to do was change the ending of the zipped file from .rar to .pbo. So please pay close attention to detail as it needs to be identical

I launched the installer and it worked. So basically I replaced the corrupt file with another one. If someone is having a similar issue, try this but make sure you backup the original file(s).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
i have the same issue with Arma 2 OA i fixed 2 files that wouldnt work by changing the suffix, but this one is different it wont work :/ its "wheeled_e.pbo.xz" and i dont know what to do to fix it. its the crc error i am currently re-downloading OA to see if that works but in the mean time it would be great if i could get help to fix this :) ps. its a download from amazon

I've had arma 2 for about a year and a half now its played great I had all the mods going. I have not formatted my pc within that time. I just uninstalled arma 2 months back.

anyhow I installed it just fine arma 2 and OA BUT when its time to update the game to 1.60 I keep getting .pbo errors. this .pbo that .pbo its always character_e.pbo , modules.pbo & some other i forget atm. i Downloaded patch 1.60 7 times now and did the md5 checks and they are a match to the .zip file NOT the .exe the Downloads came from torrent and official website.

Been trying to install for a week now. I use windows to extract and .7z to extract :mad: WTH is wrong with 1.60?!


EDIT: uhh now I get crc errors during install, tried copying to hdd still get errors. my dvd drive has up to date drivers. Can I get a replacement disk somehow ?

EDIT:
I GOT PASSED THE CRC ERROR AND THE .PBO ERRORS But it cost me some $$

-first off I had the patching problems (.pbo error xdelta3 blah blah) after I renistalled the game a year after i uninstalled it, Time went by.

-Second I noticed during install the progress bars rolling back before the crc error occured. so i updated the firmware & no dice

So I bought a new bluray drive (sick overkill)

if you install a broken game to begin with the patches are not going to work.

Before anything try updating the firmware & maybe clean the lens on you optical drive if that does not work.

-SO update firmware, do fresh install if you get crc error or patch error try another optical drive and redo the fresh install.-

*also if you dont have any money or second drive you can "TRY" a fresh install but this time with the read speed on your drive slowed down

this is how I got passed it, just sharing it.

Hi,

I've just bought Arma 2: Combined Operations.
DVD1" Arma 2 Black Edition" gets installed perfectly but as soon as i try to install Operation Arrowhead i get an error message that it can't find a certain file : data baf.pbo.gz

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

Edit:

tried once more to install it.
Now it took a bit longer to show an error message.
So now i'm copying the files from the DVD to my PC to try it once more, but now other errors showed.
misc.pbo , misc2.pbo , misc3.pbo, mission.pbo and a bunch of other files can not be copied or found.

By now I'm really wondering if this DVD i bought is even playable...

Howdies making this post for a friend.

Problem

Arma CO from Amazon.com

Multiple times could not install ArmA 2 because of CRC error. Redownloaded x5 times close to hitting bandwidth cap for month.
File- Air2.pbo.gz

He managed to jerryrig and rename the files from install and it skipped them. 0.o

Unfortunately then his arma oa install wouldnt allow him to skip their crc (has a checkfile) and thus that installation failed.

any idea what can be going wrong?

Purchased and downloaded Arma 2, and Arma2 operation arrowhead last night 3 times each from 'Meridian 4' though Amazon.com.
All copies were corrupt on instillation, and the game wouldnt install. I'd get random CRC errors though out each installation.
I contacted Amazon and they insist they provided, and i sucessfully downloaded the game, and its Bohemia Intereactive's responibility to provide me a reliable installable version of the game.
They offered a standing full refund if your unwilling to fix the problem Meridian 4 has with your installation of the game.
I got no response what so ever from Meridian 4.

I didnt buy the game just to get full refund, i bought the game to play with my friends. If another option can be offered, like a different place i can get the corrupted files from, or somewhere else i can get a working copy of the game that would be great.

Even ladies and gents, having a slight problem thats a tad bit infuriating, though i've been looking for days on an answer to my problem with no luck, still going to search but I figured i'd post here and give it a go

I've been having problems left and right trying to get A2:OA MP to work properly for me, I was using a retail copy of A2 and the steam copy of OA for the longest time, and it seems like recently since DayZ blew up, that option ended up becoming unreliable, so the other day I caved and finally bought the steam version of A2, which solved ALL but ONE of my problems. I used to get errors left and right about missing files and keys, which I ran A2 before running OA so I know to do that much, I updated BE and even ran beta patches for both games, no luck...sorry rambling, ANYWAYS point is, im down to ONE last problem. I constantly get an error that says "Common/ca_scripts.pbo are signed on a key not recognized by this server. To play on this server, remove listed files or install additional keys recognized by this server" blah blah the usual. Now my question is, WHAT exactly IS Common/ca_scripts.pbo? Because I've looked EVERYWHERE to see if anyone else has had a similar problem with no luck at all, so I cant really find a fix to a problem no one else seems to have @<hidden>@<hidden> Any clue people? I've re-installed and ran Both A2 and OA separately multiple times, verified integrity of the files, ran as administrator, no luck whatsoever trying to fix this problem.

Im at my wits end.

Support is about as useful as an eunuch in a whorehouse so I will post my question here;

I skimmed the troubleshooting thread and did not see this issue, I am sorry if I missed it somehow and if this has already been answered.

My issue is, I recently uninstalled ArmA completely because of a crash I was getting whilst playing online. It was the Battleye #3 error about corrupt data or something like that. The Battleye guy told me this was just Battleye booting me off servers because the game crashed and not the game crashing because of Battleye. I find this hard to fathom, as I don't use any mods, but ok, I accept that a game file might become corrupted somehow.

Which brings me to the issue at hand. I downloaded the game and tried to install it. ArmA2 and Operation Arrowhead install without any problems, but when I try to install BAF or PMC (ACR seems to work though), it extracts to the temp folder just fine, but the setup won't start. I try to start it, the splash comes up for a few seconds and then it exits. So basically, it's not installing. I strongly suspect the culprit to be ReactorActivate.exe, as in that Stardock activation included in the installer. Because it itself won't run, the addon won't install.

I mailed stardock with a question of dependancies, but am still waiting for a meaningful reply.

BAF and PMC simply will not install.

Just an update...

Customer support asked me to upgrade the 2005 and 2008 versions of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable x64.

That didn't work, either.

Their next suggestion:
"in that case I'm sorry but I cannot help you any further. PMC and BAF
do not work on Windows 8 under normal circumstances and there are no
workarounds other than the one I sent you."

So that is that. :(

WOW, I have the same problem, sent a trouble ticket in and haven't received a response yet. I have purchased the PMC, BAF and the ACR DLC and well, and they are offering no corrective measure. Not good customer service with a response like that, BI needs to fix it. Until then I would recommend removing the PMC and BAF DLC content from Steam and remove PMC, and BAF DLC from their store as well. It would appear the ARC DLC will install on Windows 8 Pro, at least it did for me.
