I'm hoping someone can help. I've left ArmA2 alone for about 2 weeks, yesterday I applied the latest beta patch and tried to start it up the usual way through arma2 launcher. I get to the first screen with the tanks in the foreground and hangers/jeeps in the background and the game will crash to desktop with...

this was NOT happening previously, and if I run 'without' the beta patch it works fine. Strangely even if I revert to a beta patch I had working previously, it too will cause a crash.

I'm not aware of changing anything and my system is fine for everything else. Help?
Millenium7 what happen if you start A2OA via link ("Launch Arma2 OA Beta Patch") that is in your main A2OA folder?
same problem. Doesn't matter if it's run by launcher or shortcut, still crashes at startup before getting to main menu
Starting A2OA will show you the Desert intro, starting only with A2 shows Utes intro. Just make a clean reinstall eg delete ArmA2OA.cfg and Beta folder/stuff before.
I could understand maybe a config file gone wrong, I think a clean install is unnecessary. latest official patch works fine, but now 'any' beta patch does not. It's specifically to do with running the beta. normal patch lets me load and play fine. I'd rather avoid downloading enormous data again if possible
Betabuilds are a bit smaller ~8MB compared to full "final"/"stable" A2OA updates/patches to download.
I got this patch on our server, when i enable sig check on server, it kicks me out of server lobby without anything but "connection to server aborted". I had to add 2 keys on the server, i connected and it gave me the message, that there#s no bisign for latest jarhead. I added the key, joined server, instant kick out of lobby without any other message. When i disable sig check verifySignatures=0; i can join and stay. Any clue?
server rpt doesn't say anything strange, my rpt is full with this -->Warning: no type entry inside class RscDisplayChannel/controls/Channel
Servers section rather than here. Obviously something is wrong with your server configuration nothing to do with beta patch.
The LOD is weird again, now it has a delay, it's not really what it should be.
Also this one can be considered an issue, at least for ArmA 3:
