Hi i have a problem with arma 2. i love the game and always play with the editor and stuff. yesterday i installed a mod. But i screwed my game over. My game is giving me constant messages saying missing files.. and when i start the editor up. i lost like 3/4 of all my units in the editor.. Does somebody know how to fix this??? i reinstalled the game and that didnt help. also i play dayz so maybe that messed my game up maybe ?.. I really appreciate it if someone could help me.. Greetingzzz Spacenaad srry for the bad writing.. oh i just found out, that my singleplayer missions are acting weird.. the armory is missing files.... seems like the mod i installed, it was domination for singleplayer orsomething.. screwed with the whole game and deleted units ? :S *HELP*

Welcome to Armaholic :-)

On reinstalling the game all the files should be back in place, unless you added the mods again?
Reinstall once more, patch to the latest patch, and do not use any mods at first! that should fix it.
Then obviously you are adding the mods wrong, so check out this guide on how to properly install mods.

Obviously has reinstalled the game and couldn't test the base installation without installing the DayZ Mod again...

Domination is a mission, not a Mod. And missions doesn't remove content from the game.

I own a steam version and steam patches my game.. and also i reinstalled the game, and played vanilla first before dayz... but when i want to delete a game from steam, it still has dayz in it when i reinstalled it. how do i fully delete arma 2 on steam and then get a clean arma 2 back?

which units are missing might I ask? check your target line within steam. which should be right click on the game in your library, properties, the set launch options. As far as I am aware DayZ shouldn't bind itself into the game, and if it does then the devs are tools. :-)

Dayz for some stupid reason removes a crap ton of units from the game, if you run the game without the mod you won't have the problem. If you want to remove the dayz files go into the place where you put them and delete them (there are four I belive, dayz_code, dayz_item, dayz_weapon, dayz_magazines. I think thats what they are called.)

If this is the case being caused by @DayZ then why not just remove it from your target line or use a mod
loader and untick the @DayZ mod to play in vanilla mode or with other mod folders you have made.
