# jmw_man : I was getting the exact same error message yesterday, along with another error message right after it "Error compiling pixel shader PSSpecularAlpha:0"

I don't know the exact reason why but to fix the issue I used steam to "delete local content" for both Arma 2 and OA. I did a search for anything Arma related and deleted it all. This includes the Arma folder in Program Files/Steam/steamaps/common and there's an Arma folder in the documents folder as well. Both deleted. I then made sure I restarted steam "as administrator" (this could have been my problem) and installed Arma 2, ran it, installed OA, and it ran without those two errors.

Now I have a completely different issue with both Arma 2 and OA constantly freezing on me for a couple seconds every few seconds. Makes the game unplayable...... buuut, that's another topic.

Thats really no good man, I wish you best of luck getting it working again.

It works now! :D I have been playing on some busy servers and have made my first ARMA 2 Video already!


Actually thast was made with the OA demo, but I will enjoy doing some heli extractions and other stuff along the way!

I did the Delete Local content and re download and install, I id it lots of times but the 3rd or fourth time, I downloaded it over night and it suddenly works in the morning. Probably because I uninstalled steam and Re-Installed on my Portable ahrd drive (F: expansion)

Thankyou my friends for all your Support. What a great community here in Armaholic.
