Hello fellow armaholics ! :)
I have some dumb question; I can't figure how to start a coop compaign; I heard it's in the single player mode but I couldn't find despite all my efforts.
Could you please help me a bit?
Many thanks!

Hey melik and welcome to Armaholic *HI*

Well once you have downloaded the Coop mission, go to your game directory normally this:

C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\MPMissions

And put the mission in there, then load your game up and that should work. If its a single player mission
then it works the same way, apart from you put the mission in to the "Missions" folder instead of MPMissions.

With a Campaign then you need to make a folder called "Campaign" and put the Campaign missions
inside that, again inside the game directory.

Hope this can help you.

Thanks for the answer DarkXness.
Actually I am talking about ArmA I (and Queen's Gambit) not ArmA II :-).

Ooops, haha sorry ... so used to questions being asked about ArmA2 and so on that I didnt see that.

Isnt it the same structure as ArmA2 though? im thinking it wouldnt be the any different.
Have you checked in your game directory for a missions folder? or your my documents for an "ArmA profiles folder"
not so sure as I didnt play Armed Assault, sorry about that.

Well the structure seems to be the same.
But I also heard (understood) that playing the compaign in coop comes in the vanilla version, i.e. I don't need to download missions or such to play.
Maybe I'm missing something blatant but I really can't find how to do it *DONT_KNOW*
(BTW I originally put this message in Armed Assault / Troubleshooting and it got moved to Armed Assault / Missions: Complete / Singleplayer missions, I think It fits better in the first location)

Yea I understand your point, ill have a word with the admin Foxhound.

About your mission problem, it beats me .. Just wait now until a Armed Assault player can tell you more
than what I can as I made a mistake in the first place, hehe sorry about that.

Good luck.

If I recall correct it was never implemented to make the campaign playable in MP. There once was something said about it but it was never implemented.


** this section fits best as all you want to know is how to play the campaign in MP. How to throw a grenade is also not troubleshooting ;-)

Thanks For the answer Foxhound.
So I take it only the single player missions (not the campaign) can be played in coop mode?

If those SP missions are made so they can also be played in MP than yes. But not all SP missions are MP ready.
However you can always edit them yourself to make them MP compatible.

Please note scripts and commands do work different in MP and SP sometimes, so thats why a SP missions might not work in MP. Just try I would say ;-)
