Hello All,

I hope you could help me.

I have tried Arma2 free and liked to I bought on amazon the complete version Arma2 reinforcement.
Of course every one is playing under the most recent patch.

I have installed the 1.60 patch and now when lauching the game i get a pop up message: "failed to load file C:\program files\bohemia interactive\arma 2 reinforcements\BAF\addons\air_d_baf.pbo - decryption of headers failed."
and then another pop up after a black screen "bad serial number given in setup".


I have tried 4 times re install it and im sure of my serial number.. Im strugglin and cannot find any solution online..
I have bought a game but I'm unable to use it now..

Ps: it was working fine before patching...

Arma 2: Reinforcements is not a stand alone game.

Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead is a stand alone game.

Arma 2: Reinforcements is an add-on to Operation Arrowhead.

You should first install Operation Arrowhead.

That of course is wrong!!

Arma 2: Reinforcements brings to the Armaversum two new factions - Her Majesty's Armed Forces and private contractors. Play it separately or combine with original Arma 2: Combined Operations


However, you can play it standalone but you can not combine Arma 2: Reinforcements with Arma 2: Free.

The most stupid part of my Arma 2 life is reading the information!


The Arma 2: Private Military Company is the addon for Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead and/or Arma 2: Combined Operations. It cannot be played seperately and does require the original game in order to be played

The Arma 2: British Armed Forces is the addon for Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead and/or Arma 2: Combined Operations. It cannot be played seperately and does require the original game in order to be played.

Arma 2: Reinforcements brings to the Armaversum two new factions - Her Majesty's Armed Forces and private contractors. Play it separately or combine with original Arma 2: Combined Operations for ultimate military combat experience.


Actually, BAF and PMC originally were both add-ons to Operation Arrowhead.
Afterwards they were merged into one DVD, named Reinforcements, I expect to increase sales.
Mysteriously I missed the point the Reinforcements became a stand alone game!
OOOOOOPS!
