# Thread: Arma 2:OA 1.60 Release Candidate

1. EDIT ---->>>

When no mods are specified, it is trying to load every mod folder in the directory. If I delete the Okt-Noblur folders, the game launches but with EVERY mod loaded.

Something is amiss here I think. I have raised a CIT ticket (26785) for this

Seriously, even if you put in any real or fake mod folder the game works. It needs -mod for some reason.
Actually I am getting the same thing! If I run as combined Ops everything is cool, if I try and run OA standalone I get the "error creating 3d device" message and then out to desktop.

command line is:

Code:
"E:\Games\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead\arma2oa.exe" -noSplash -noFilePatching -showScriptErrors "-name=Jedra"
Error report is

2. Thanks BIS, Awesome work....

waiting for final release........ xD

3. i see nuxil has listed his commandline?

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2\arma2oa.exe

is that ARMA 2: OA retail/sprocket installed into ARMA 2 STEAM release?

separate folders of A2 and OA or single folder install ?

since 1.60 the engine is capable via registry detected installed A2, OA, BAF, PMC content and thus don't need -mod=
(gunna make happy STEAM/Desura users and these with standalone folders)

there is class ModLauncherList part

most likely there some mods listed there

as now the in-game mod/extension manager was improved these are loaded on game start w/o -mod=

so just clean them from profile file and try start again

4. ## Slow Speed ​​Flying by helicopter in SP

The helicopter in SP speed very slow 18 before patch 1.60 RC helicopter speed very fast.
Ex: Apache Helicopter IA driver, and gunner player ok .... before flying very fast to the destinations, now always very slow speed flight 18.
Please could someone look at this in the game thanks.

My path: "E:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2\arma2oa.exe" -nosplash -cpuCount=4 -exThreads=7

Steam ArmA2, Sprocket OA+BAF+PMC, all in the same folder

In my .ArmA2OAProfile there's nothing in ModLauncherList

When I try to launch the game with that line, I get this RPT:

6. Great job!
+ getting +15-20 fps
+ tons of major/minor bug fixes which were properly tweaked and fixed
+ internet play a lot smoother
+ haven't gotten any crashes
+ just feels much better, more stable, and smoother overall
+ good to know how many issues were fixed and optimizations were put in
For me this patch is perfect so far, but more servers need to update to it : P

7. Before the patch, I had a bunch of objects using the attachto command to prevent their bouncing on the carrier(the command didn't work as I thought it would) but it did keep them still and allow me to setposasl them as I needed them. Now, after the patch, the command seems to be working as it should BUT instead of seeing the command "attachto" in the init line of each object, it displays "this inflame true".

same for me!

Er I think they mean the beta folder that is created when you use one of BIS's test beta patches. You know, all the test beta patches that were released prior to 1.60RC?
http://www.arma2.com/beta-patch.php
Install it and you should find the dll folder at:
Arma2/Expansions/beta/dll

I think you then copy that dll folder into the main Arma2 directory or use the -mod line someone suggested previous page.
Just going to try this myself. Installing a beta does not do anything to the game and I have never had a problem. You only run it when using the beta patch shortcut in the Arma2 directory.
don't work.

9. I can't get my game to patch properly for the life of me. What I have done:

-Installed the patch. No errors occurred.

"Verifying ARMA 2 OA, version 1.60...
ARMA 2 OA patch 1.60 has been applied successfully."

I launch my Combined Operations or stock OA and my version number shows 1.59.79384.

This kind of sucks. My server is patched to 1.6 and I can't join it now. :O

Any help is appreciated.

Edit: Problem fixed. The ArmA registry files were messed up.

10. That means you've most likely installed the beta which went into Expansion\beta directory and not RC from the first post in this thread

(either that or I can't give another logical explanation)
