had a taste of Arma last week and searched online for a seller.

i have purchased my first Arma game and its the Arma 2 Reinforcements. I understand i should have gotten the arma 2 combined ops instead but i just cant find that and grabbed the only arma available to me at the moment...

can i play the community-made campaigns here with my Reinforcements? or only those that utilize the baf and pmc units and resources? i would definitely want to maximize this Reinforcements game until I get hold of the original Arma 2 and OA versions.

thanks all!

You can play all campaigns and missions which require Arma 2: Operation arrowhead with or without BAF and/or PMC.
If a mission or campaign requires Arma 2 than you can not play it.
The same goes for addons and mods.

You can find the Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead download section here:
- Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead files

All files there you can use, except those which depend on Arma 2. Also it is possible files depend on other addons which in turn depend on Arma 2. But, there is more than enough stuff available without needing Arma 2 (for starters at least).

been downloading stuff from this site since yesterday but i keep on chancing on Campaigns that "need" original Arma 2 and not Arrowhead only, so my Arma 2 RFT can't play it...

can anyone point me to a purely OA Campaign that I can use for my RFT? thanks!

btw, most of the single player missions that i have downloaded worked fine. loving this game...

If you want a purely OA campaign this might be good. I have not played it, but it seems good. It's OA standalone meaning you do not need Arma 2.
Note:
Anything that says Requirments: ArmA 2, will require it. Otherwise you can use it in OA standalone, just in case you didn't know.

thanks GW, trying that later.

this arma stuff is keeping me up these days. its just sad i learned about this game just a week ago when it was already here for more than three years now. The last time i felt this excited about a game was back in the good ol Ghost Recon days, playing and replaying actions in Island Thunder, Desert Shield.

Great to meet another OGR player and I fully understand how you feel. For me only GR and nowadays Arma ever gave me this feeling. Other games are only fun for a short time and limitted play. I played GR for 4 years in a row (since it was released) and than moved over to the Arma series which I am playing since 2006 :-)

(yep, 2 years are missing I think, that was my VBS1 time. The military editing of the Arma engine).

a few weeks ago, when I got hold of the MW3 game and Sniper Elite, I was telling everyone how badass these games were. I was scouring YouTube for Battlefield 3 videos for my next planned game when I saw comments mentioning how this certain Arma game was as real as it can get as far as FPShooters are concerned...then I googled it and then bam!...GR memories came back...and I was scrambling around the Interwebs for a copy...this Reinforcements expansion should do...in the meantime...

Hello... not to be a killjoy but I think we are offtopic. Sorry to be a killjoy,
Is there anything else you would like to find? if so, try our handy search feature: Here . It is a very good tool and at the bottom of any page you open, you can see if ArmA 2 standalone is required.

THe broken arrow campaign refuses to run. and when it did, my soldiers didn't have rifles with them...some just pretended to carry one. :-)
