I keep getting an Error creating direct3d 9 graphical engine.

I'm using a batch file, that's why it looks a bit weird.

Here's what I've tried so far:

@ECHO OFF
START "ArmA2" /d "D:\Program files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2" arma2oa.exe -mod=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion;@CBA;@JayArma2Lib;@ACRE;@ACE;

Did not work.

@ECHO OFF
START "ArmA2" /d "D:\Program files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2" arma2oa.exe -mod=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion;@CBA;@JayArma2Lib;@ACRE;@ACE;

Did not work.

@ECHO OFF
START "ArmA2" /d "D:\Program files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2" arma2oa.exe -beta=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion

Worked.

@ECHO OFF
START "ArmA2" /d "D:\Program files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2" arma2oa.exe -beta=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion -mod=@CBA;

Did not work.

So trying to use any mods seems to prevent me from playing the game. I can't deal with that, I need my mods.

Oh, and of course:

@ECHO OFF
START "ArmA2" /d "D:\Program files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2" arma2oa.exe -mod=mods

Does work.

I might be posting this in the wrong place, in that case, please direct me to the correct place. I searched, and there was a thread about this from 2009 and then the solution seems to have been to delete arma2oa.cfg from My Documents, and I did that, still didn't work.

edit: since then I have tried:

@ECHO OFF
START "ArmA2" /d "D:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\Expansion\beta\" arma2oa.exe -beta=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\expansion

Did not work, in addition I got a could not find .profilepathdefault error, or something to that effect.

@ECHO OFF
START "ArmA2" /d "D:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\Expansion\beta\" arma2oa.exe -mod=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\expansion

Kind of worked. I got the same profilepath error as above, but the game started, however it did not start properly. It was some kind of menu with jumbled graphics, and it didn't even show me the splashscreen even though I didn't have the parameter for that.

@concurssi:

The correct startup line is:

START "ArmA2" /d "D:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\" expansion\beta\arma2oa.exe -mod=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\expansion

Better just use a launcher instead of hassling with shortcuts and batch files, e.g Six Updater.

Still no lock with Javelin (only tried it in veteran).

What ticket? https://dev-heaven.net/projects/cis/wiki/CIT

Unfortunately I am still getting a freeze

Now I just feel like an idiot :D

I would use SU, but I used it before and I think I did something wrong at some point, and then ACE and ACRE wouldn't work anymore no matter what I tried. So I ended up reinstalling everything, including ArmA itself. Now I'd rather do it manually so I don't have to do that again in case I mess up again :D.

But thanks, you just saved me so many headaches man.

@OP

You should start in the arma2 folder not in the expansion\beta folder (like Sickboy posted)

start /d "D:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\"

And the relative path to the beta exe-file starts from the path above

Expansion\beta\arma2oa.exe

And Iirc the beta paths would be loaded with -beta

-beta=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion

And -mods=... should not end with a semicolon, e.g.:

-mod=@Clafghan (not -mod=@Clafghan; )

E.g.

START /d "D:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\" Expansion\beta\arma2oa.exe -beta=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion -mod=@Clafghan

A good launcher (also as Sickboy suggested) will help tremendously.

Just a quick info that I fixed CTD on beta startup issue. I've had to manually delte Expansion\beta folder, reinstall the patch, it works now.

I was under the impression this was the normal way to install betas.:)

I think Krem's saying that the volume of feedback on the beta threads has slowed down due to people having issues running the new betas. Personally, they're installing fine for me and I'll continue to post if and when I find any bugs :)

89647 Feedback

Dead AI flickering back to standing position for 0.5 second when you turn to look in that direction.

Slower performance in Multiplayer than 1.60 87xxx. Frequent pauses and a low frame rate.

Can't comment further as I have stopped using it due to the above.

I noticed worse performance compared to 1.60 most noticable in SP campaign Harvest Red even withaout any FXAA or PPAA. Also noticed a lot of crashes in Campaign.

Me too. When it crashes, the game just freezes, I have to kill it with the task manager. No RPT Entries are created.
