Thread: Best Mod Launcher for Combined Operations?

  1. #11
    Alpinestars launcher does start ArmA2 CO. Of course it will use OA exe for that. That's what I use.

    There's a problem with it now - it can't retrieve Gamespy server lists anymore. Gamespy changed something?
    ArmA2: "Doc, I'm wounded, I can barely aim and I'm bleeding badly, come on pull my body out of the harm's way and treat me before I die!"
    ArmA3: "You are wounded! Click to instantly regenerate health whenever you feel like it!"

    Giving 'authenticity' an entirely new meaning, together with Medal of Honor.

    That should be all there is to it.

    I run 24/7 support basically, if there's an issue, report it, and I will take care of it asap: http://www.six-updater.net/p/support.html
    Lastly, the performance should now be at a respectable level, making it more suitable as launcher.
    Well, we're using the Six-Updater in our communtiy to keep in sync with all the mods.
    Sickboy is right when saying, that he's running nearly 24/7 support. I wonder if he ever sleeps or work. :P

    SU is defnetly a big go. Especially with the latest performance improvements.

    Less is more...why add another 3rd-party app when it/they is/are not necessary.

    agree, this launcher does launch CO. gotta make sure u installed OA into the same directory u installed Arma2 though. been using it to launch CO all the time.

    what's the error message for server list? its still working fine, only cant see who is on the server.

    In AlpineStart launcher, just select the proper "Game version" in the lower right corner. That will select the proper .exe file to launch

    Of course, as said you need to have combined ops installed properly

    Hi, i use this script to launch the game, usually i don't play on online servers, sometimes i host games with some friends and i save different cmds based on the mission name (so i don't need to remember which mod is required for every mission), you can edit and adapt it if you need, by default it launches the non beta version but you can choose to launch the beta one pressing the 2 key at menu

    Code:
    @echo off
    
    setlocal enableextensions
    
    set MODSTRINGCOMMON=@CBA;@ACE;@ACEX;@ACEX_USNavy;@ACEX_RU;@ACEX_SM;@sthud;@stmovement;@JTD
    set PARAMETERSCOMMON=-cpuCount=8 -exThreads=7 -nosplash -world=empty -malloc=tbb4malloc_bi
    set PARAMETERSOFFICIAL=
    set PARAMETERSBETA=
    set BETAPATH=Expansion\beta
    set MODSTRINGBETA=%BETAPATH%;%BETAPATH%\Expansion;@okt_NoBlurBeta
    set MODSTRINGOFFICIAL=@okt_noblur
    set EXE=ARMA2OA.exe
    
    :v64_path_a2oa
    for /F "Tokens=2* skip=2" %%E in ('reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Bohemia Interactive Studio\ArmA 2 OA" /v "Main"') do (set ARMAPATH=%%F)
    
    if not defined ARMAPATH (goto v32_path_a2oa) else (goto menu1)
    
    :v32_path_a2oa
    For /F "Tokens=2* skip=2" %%G In ('reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Bohemia Interactive Studio\ArmA 2 OA" /v "Main"') do set (ARMAPATH=%%H)
    
    if not defined ARMAPATH (goto uac_PATH_A2OA) else (goto menu1)
    
    :uac_PATH_A2OA
    @for /F "tokens=2* delims=	 " %%M in ('reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Bohemia Interactive Studio\ArmA 2 OA" /v "Main"') do (SET ARMAPATH=%%N)
    
    if not defined ARMAPATH (goto std_PATH_A2OA) else (goto menu1)
    
    :std_PATH_A2OA
    @for /F "tokens=2* delims=	 " %%O in ('reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Bohemia Interactive Studio\ArmA 2 OA" /v "Main"') do (SET ARMAPATH=%%P)
    
    if not defined ARMAPATH (goto ENDfailA2OA) else (goto menu1)
    
    :menu1
    
    echo.
    echo Choose between official or beta version (5 seconds timeout)
    echo.
    echo 1) Official version (default)
    echo 2) Beta version
    echo 3) Quit
    echo.
    
    choice /C:123 /D 1 /T 5 /M "Your choice:"
    if errorlevel == 3 goto quit
    if errorlevel == 2 goto betastarter
    if errorlevel == 1 goto officialstarter
    
    :officialstarter
    
    start "" /D "%ARMAPATH%" /B "%ARMAPATH%\%EXE%" "-mod=%MODSTRINGOFFICIAL%;%MODSTRINGCOMMON%" %PARAMETERSCOMMON% %PARAMETERSOFFICIAL%
    
    goto quit
    
    :betastarter
    
    start "" /D "%ARMAPATH%" /B "%ARMAPATH%\%BETAPATH%\%EXE%" "-mod=%MODSTRINGBETA%;%MODSTRINGCOMMON%" %PARAMETERSCOMMON% %PARAMETERSBETA%
    
    goto quit
    
    :quit
    @exit /B 0
    
    :ENDfailA2OA
    @exit /B 1
