Thanks to everyone involved, we are getting close to final state.

* all signature problems should be gone finally

* the official expansions are handled better using registry based system now, should make the in game expansions manager more useful than before

As our plan is to release final 1.60 prior Christmas please focus on regressions or installation problems only at this stage.

Note:
this RC contains
ARMA 2: OA update 1.60
ARMA 2 update 1.11
ARMA 2: BAF update 1.03
ARMA 2: PMC update 1.02

Just wanted to say thanks..pretty rare you have developers that actually interact with the community on a personal level to improve gameplay and get feedback..thats what always drew me to ARMA...the devotion and dedication of the developer..wont find that in BF or COD..Thanks much for everything you do BIS!

We did as much as we possibly could on this mega update. We consider it complete now and there is nothing more we can do before holidays now.

So treat it as it is simply final patch and report only major installation issues or issues preventing this patch to be rolled out to everybody.

Thanks to everyone involved, without help of so many of the community members, 1.60 would never be possible. Thank you :yay:

Can someone confirm this hash for the exe?

ARMA2OA_Patch_1_60.exe


I got this error during the install:


I would not expect the damaged patch to be the cause here.

From what version are you exactly patching ?

Give us proper animations for throwing Frags. Give us a proper wounding system. Fix the armored vests so that they donĀ“t protect the whole torso. More Civilian assets. Females. Weapon resting. Give us inertia influenced movement depending on the Weapon you have.

Ran installer again....

Error found in file addons\Ca.pbo (758287a2!=6ae6cff2)

Same file, different numbers :confused:
Clicked ignore and install completed!

Checked Ca.pbo with another install that had no errors, and checksum the same/ file size the same etc...
