I have ACE2 downloaded and I got it to work with my steam version of OA but i started it and it works but it says i need to download community based add ons. I downloaded the CBA OA and the original but where do I extract them to if the game is being played off steam? And how do I get other mods to work with it? Like TF86 Seals? is there anyway to get tf86 to work with steam?

Hello Marinepig25,

1: Buy a retail version of arma2 - Steam can be a real head case.

2: look at my post here

3: Use Six updater for all you ace mods as this will update a lot of addons used by ace and have addons from other mods you can also use to update - this is DL from http://dev-heaven.net/projects/six-arma-updater/files - Also let this application through your firewall or it wont work, it should prompt when running/ launching for the first time.


If you still get stuck you PM me your skype name and i will help you out.

The Six updater is a tool which helps you to download addons and mods hosted on the Six network. It was mainly designed for ACE2 (see homepage news) but its also used for other projects.
More info here:

Please do not post the same question in multiple topics. Stick to using one topic for your question. Otherwise its getting confusing and a mess. I have removed the other post.

garyaich,

any mods for arma should be placed in the root directory of arma 2.

mine being : C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2

how to create the mod folders inside the "arma 2" folder follow the faq for "How to install and launch addons"
