FIX )(Try to add this to your startup line again:
"-mod=C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\Common\ArmA 2;EXPANSION;ca"))


Hi I've tried re installing the game and checking if my drivers were up to date but thats not fixing it.
I have no mods either.
I have tried running as administrator in steam.
And manually launched it from a folder as administrator.
Every time half way through it stops and gives me this error:
bin\config.bin/CfgInGameUI/MPTable.shadow
then when I press Okay It loads a little more and then i get the Error:
Error compiling pixel shader PSSpecularAlpha:0
I've tried everything I know how to do can anyone please help me.

Are you sure you run it as admin. Normally this helps for this one AFAIK.

+1

And finally someone named the topic wisely. This same question has been asked like 3-4 times within few weeks and everytime the topic is named just "Help problem" etc..

The reason I am asking is you saying this:

Everytime i start the game through steam as administrator and manually launching it from folder


To me this sounds like you first start steam and then outside of steam launch the arma2oa.exe, right?

Drag it into any text editor with admin permissions.

Also just upload the file to a temp host like:
http://www.file-upload.net

And post the link

I am not trying to hijack this thread, as I figured it'd just be better to post my issue here as to consolidate information to try to get this resolved as best as possible.

Below is a screenshot of the issue upon launching ARMA 2 OA by itself, similar to the OP's problem:

Spoiler


Below is what happens after the "OK" button has been pressed,:

It continues to load:
Spoiler


The game starts up, the screen turns black, and then it says:
Spoiler


I've done the following to try to remedy the situation:

0: Run Arma 2 as Admin
1: Deleted BAF
2: Deleted PMC
3: Run Steam As Admin
4: Run the game from Steam's folder as Admin
5: Re-Install Arma OA

Here is my DX Diag, in case that'll help:

Spoiler



If anyone can assist myself and the OP to get this situation resolved, we BOTH would greatly appreciate it, because I, and I'm sure he as well, cannot figure out what's stopping us from enjoying such an amazing game.

***EDIT***

I've uninstalled PMC, and installed the Beta Patch, will report as to how that affects the situation.

Installing the BETA patch, and running the following command:

Spoiler


does not help the situation any further. Another error message pops up, this time it says:

Spoiler


Upon first load (with BETA Patch enabled). And after I select "OK", it then says:

Spoiler


***EDIT***

Will try installing all Direct X's...

Yeah, that didn't work either. I'm stumped.

I'm going to uninstall STEAM... And then RE-Install Arma 2, launch it, then Arma 2 OA, launch it, then install BAF, launch it, then install PMC, and launch it.

Wish me luck..... Hopefully I'm going through all this so anyone else that uses the search function will be able to locate the fix for this issue, and see the steps that it took to get to it.

Maybe it'll help out for development in the future, who knows.

If I'm breaking any rules, just delete my post and pretend I don't exist.

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!

OP, my advice to you is to uninstall EVERYTHING, STEAM, ARMA, EVERYTHING, COMPLETELY!!!!

Get RevoUninstaller to remove all that, and remove every single trace of Steam and Arma from your registry.

Install steam.

Install Arma 2 - Then Run It

Install OA - THEN RUN IT (error should come up again)

Install BAF - DO NOT RUN IT

Install PMC - DO NOT RUN IT

RESTART YOUR COMPUTER....

While STEAM is loading, on your desktop, double click the sh india tango out of the OA icon...

Run as COMBINED OPS

Helped to the shader problems, thank You. Now, however, I have "bad serial number given in setup", launching in admin mode from steam. I could register it somewhere (steam directs me to homepage of armaII and there is serial key in steam but tried "buy" option etc, where to register ? Or what to do ?)...

Also, bought the armaII+operation arrowhead packet ("arma II co") yesterday, I've done nothing but this one fix done so far. (also pointing another error-thread to this one, since it is relevant and this solution worked-kind of)

Thanks in advance,
Suchros

I'm struggling with the same issue, I'm not big on PC gaming, so I don't know how common it is to not be able to play a game after buying it.. I get the same error message, followed by the pixelshader message. I followed the RPT instructions, didn't work..then ran it as combined ops and it worked. Downloading DayZ, hopefully that doesn't cause more problems.

I sent a support request to bohemia interactive on how to set serial key so operation arrowhead would work. I got the shader-errors fixed by RPT's instructions, but got "Bad serial number given in setup"-error then on arrowhead (Arma II works). Let's see how well support works...

Also, if You have nvidia card, check the compatibility from nvidia-program to arma II (I set the suggested shadow'ing options from arma II's options, might be part why the shader-error doesn't occur any more). Compatibility of my card is "fair" and suggested to disable some shader options.

That helped me on the shader issue. You just put the sentence (quotation marks and everything) in advanced-part when running the game from steam. So, right-click the game in steam, lowest selection "properties" then "set launch options" and paste that whole thing (startup line) there.

The "bad serial key during installation" went away by itself in few days - propably it took some time for steam to move the money or verify transfer to armaII... Also I sent a suppoert-request with link to this post but I am not sure if it had anything to do with it being solved.
