Hopefully more AI improvements will start rolling again soon.
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!"

Guess two years post-release aren't enough to make ArmA3 at least half as dumbed down.

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.

Cheers!
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.

Dead units (AI) flicker back into their last stand/pos. This issue/bug was already fixed but made a comeback. :(

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