Hey, I've been looking about for a while and i can't seem to figure out were you put the .ftp file once you download it.
Thank you for any help.

what on earth is an .ftp file?

If you want help please be descriptive. Letting us guess what you are on about is not a proper way to get help.

It's a zip file such as .rar .zip et cetera. Use WinRar or anythign similar to unzip.

Then, you should search in whatever you unzipped, every folder looks different. you need to have one ore more *.pbo and *.bisign and maybe one *.bikey data. Anything else (Readmes, Versions.txt, Changelog) doesn't matter.

In your ArmA II Root directory, create a new folder named @Nameoftheisland. Inside this @... you create another Folder called AddOns (<- MUST! be this name) and you place any .pbo and .bisign file in there. If you want, you can make another folder named Keys in your @... Folder and place the .bikey in there, but it's not required as this file is for serverhosters (dedicated server) only. Any requestions left, you might wanna take a look at this tutorial:

So. Really? Maybe that readme you think doesn't matter contain important information about the addon/mod, e.g. how to use it. Sure as hell such files are not written to make the creator look important. But actually I'm not surprised anymore why we have the same threads with the same stupid questions again and again when no one bothers to check the included documentation.

# W0lle : /Whole Post/

I'm Sorry. I did not mean to say that readmes ect. are useless. What i meant was, that it is not neccesary to place them into the Modfolders or AddOns-Folder. Of course, you can do so, so you always have a Readme easy to find right next to the Mod. But it's absolutely not needed for the mod itself to run, you might aswell just place the readme somewhere else (i have a special Readmes-Folder for that) or delete them if you think you won't need them.

Thank you for the help and I'm sorry for previous misunderstandings and/or lack of "checking the included documentation" (which I did read but did not understand as I am not one who often delves into such things and did not understand how the files related to each other).

Give 'em hell.
