ARMA 2 Free has received patch to v1.11 together with the ARMA 2 Original, and OA v1.60 patches.

From the beginning it was possible to use ARMA 2 Free to combine it with Operation Arrowhead, to get Combined Ops Lite.
Lite - because you are missing the ARMA 2 original campaign and missions and reduced texture quality.

This gives you the ability to join Combined Ops servers, albeit with somewhat reduced texture quality for the ARMA 2 original content. You do not need the campaigns and missions for multiplayer anyway.

This is especially useful for people not owning ARMA 2 original. But for full texture quality and full ARMA 2 original experience, you are still encouraged to buy the full game.

Full support for ARMA 2 Free is available in Six Updater, you can also download, install and update ARMA 2 Free, directly from within the Six Updater, Games section.

Well this is neat. I am surprised I didn't think of it already. Should work fine with any mods that require CO to.

A2 Free + OA not free = Will users have mod support this way? :)
So when I enlist people in my squad I'll just tell them to buy original OA and that's all? They'll be able to play with same mods but reduced texture quality, right?

I do not have A2 but I have A2f installed. I had bought OA and installed it before the A2f came out. I cannot see any attack choppers in MP game. Would it help if I uninstalled OA then reinstall because I had OA installed first???
