Sickboy informed us people who do not own Arma 2 (only OA) and feel like they are missing out they can use Arma 2: Free to create an Arma 2: Combined Operations "Lite".


ARMA 2 Free has received patch to v1.11 together with the ARMA 2 Original, and OA v1.60 patches.

For those not owning the ARMA 2 Original Game, check out ARMA 2 Free - which can be combined with ARMA 2 OA / RFT, to get Combined Ops Lite!
This works for online multiplayer as well!

From the beginning it was possible to use ARMA 2 Free to combine it with Operation Arrowhead, to get Combined Ops Lite. "Lite" because you are missing the ARMA 2 original campaign and missions and reduced texture quality.

This gives you the ability to join Combined Ops servers, albeit with somewhat reduced texture quality for the ARMA 2 original content. You do not need the campaigns and missions for multiplayer anyway.

This is especially useful for people not owning ARMA 2 original. But for full texture quality and full ARMA 2 original experience, you are still encouraged to buy the full game.

Get Arma 2: Free from our download section.
Full support for ARMA 2 Free is available in Six Updater, you can also download, install and update ARMA 2 Free, directly from within the Six Updater, Games section.

Check out the blog entry for more info: https://plus.google.com/104785560298357015306/posts/TxmbwrxA2FU


========================================


Also kju sent us some information how to do this!

    Quote :
    The guide and process has the OK by BI.
    You may want to mention also the method provided by the Six Updater.

    It would be nice to get the remaining OA only users also to have CO in this form to unify the MP base and sort the missing a2 addons problem when people try to use community addons made for A2/CO.

This is an unofficial guide and is not done by Bohemia Interactive. CO Lite is still experimental as more feedback from people testing with the various distributions is needed.


Of course, if you want the HD textures and the campaign of Arma 2 just buy it!

Yeah thanks, I actually figured this out a while Ago I just forgot to post my answer. And for anyone who needs help 6 updater is wonderful for combinding the 2 games. I recomend it over the other ways.

No, CO lite is Arma 2: OA with Arma 2 free. Not any other version.

I have ARMA 2 Reinforcements cd pack. I got troubles because RFT don't have Chenarus map on its the package.

My friend told me to install Arma 2 Free one to enable it. Should I re install the RFT after installing A2 Free ?

I would like to able to play some maps like Thirsk, Fallujah, etc ....

No, you do not have to reinstall.
You can just install A2: free and than add this to yor shortcut:
"-mod=c:\location\of\ArmA 2 Free;..."

NOTE: You need provide the full link to the ArmA 2 Free folder.
NOTE: You need to enclose the parameter in quotes, if it contains spaces in the path.
