Hi all please forgive me as I cant read the whole thread to find out.
But I got ARMA2 when it was released from a shop. I then got
OA from a shop on release to use OA stuff in ARMA2 and ARMA2 stuff in OA do I need to do any thing?.
Thanks in advance
Sorry to be a moron, but will this allow me to have another "mod", or "Expansion" as they are now being called, visible in Op:ArrowHead when run as Combined Ops?
I would like to set up IslaDuala, cant i just put -mod@IslaDuala at the end of the shortcut as before?
First install arma 2, then install OA but point the install directory to your arma 2 install location ( e.g. C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\ )

& your good to go! (Also you don't need to use the arma 2 short cut any more)
EDIT: This is the method I used for my sprocket version of CO, though I can't see how it would differ with DVD. Just a little disclaimer! lol

Great ok thanks very much I will be formatting my pc soon and want to have a nice new fresh ARMA2 install ready for some late night COOP play.
Thanks, I'm now completely confused and it was worth every penny?
Guess I shouldn't have used Steam for OA!
Never mind, for once again i have solved my own issue! Hoorah!

I followed the rules. It combined both games at first but after reboot it stopped working. Any ideas?
it works for me, but i need to close steam after each play, else it just launches arrowhead.

So umm like im confused like... I got Arma 2 DVD and hopelly soon my copy of OA DVD will arrive too... so if i would like to combine these both DVD versions i would have to first install Arma 2 and then OA into the Arma 2 directory and thats it? that impression i got from the previous posts.
Im little confused here because the first page is full of hassle and dassle...
Hi there yes install ARMA2 then OA in same directory it will then make the icon say Combined so does work .
And that's what got me the first post.
