Download this and copy and paste it in C:\Program Files (x86)\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2 Operation Arrowhead. Once you have done that make a Arma Operation Arrowhead shortcut on your desktop if you do not have one already. Right click on the shortcut and go to properties and where it says target you should see something like this "C:\Program Files (x86)\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2 Operation Arrowhead\arma2OA.exe". Add -mod=@CBA_OA; on the end of it and press okay.

strange is this the BAF DLC or a third-party addon? you shouldnt get this issue if its the former.

If it is TPA Im guessing you know how to make modfolders? as you have got to the point where the cba error wont allow you to load it, if not follow this FAQ. :-)

All the files relevent to that addon (PBO's Bisigns) Need to be put in a folder called addons and that folder inside a folder named for example @BritishWeapons

So it looks like this @BritishWeapons\addons ( \ signifies inside the folder)

Instead of editing the targetline use this mod launcher its simple to use, follow the ReadMe, it auto detects any mods you have in your arma2 directory, alls you have to do is tick which ones you want to use (remember Third Party Addons need @CBA (Community Based Addons)

If it is this UKF Weapons Pack you trying to use, you wont be able to as its for ArmA II Operation Arrowhead (Note: It says Requirements: Community Based Addons)

You might want to try this UKF Weapons Pack or this UKF Weapon Pack instead, both require Community Based Addons.

It might be easier well less work needed to get operation arrowhead and the BAF dlc ;)

Note: You say this is for ArmA II, so please post this thread in the right topic, this is the Operation Arrowhead topic. Topic shall be moved.

PM me for direct help, It sucks you cant get your addons to work, that is the best part of the game after all, it would be like any other game collecting dust if it wasnt for the community. *THUMBS UP*
