An update summary on all things related to the Gamespy shutdown:At the time of writing this post the Gamespy service still works and is available.It’s now possible to activate all Arma 2 franchise keys on Steam.
Just take the key from your manual and activate it on Steam ( https://support.stea...=5414-TFBN-1352
). This includes keys for Arma 2, Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead, Arma 2: British Armed Forces, Arma 2: Private Military Company, Arma 2: Army of the Czech Republic in all variants and editions (digital, retail, keys from Arma 2: Reinforcements and Arma X).
If you encounter any problems, please, contact our support (firstname.lastname@example.org
)Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead
now has a beta steam branch, which is independent on Gamespy, but requires Steam to work (Multiplayer functionality was switched from Gamespy to Steamworks). (How do I opt into beta program in Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead?)
More info about the beta patch available in special sub-forum hereArma 3
has been running both systems (Gamespy and Steamworks) simultaneously for several weeks now. Just change the settings in the game server browser ( How to switch to Steam in-game server browser
)For other games
(Arma 1, Arma: Cold War Assault, Take On Helicopters), which are not going to be updated to work with Steam, we’ve prepared a set of FAQs ( http://faq.bistudio.com
) and a web-based server browser
). It enables server owners to add their servers to the list, for users to directly connect to the servers (if they have a Steam version of the game) or to easily learn how to connect. Currently it’s in Alpha stage and we’d like to improve the functionality.
