Hi, I'm new to ArmaHolic and Arma 2 + Arma 2 OA. I've just downloaded a MPMission which is a firing range. I've extracted the files into the ./MPMissions folder as it said. Now I'm just wondering, how do I actually start that specific mission? I've looked around in the Single Player and Multiplayer section ingame and can't work out how to do it. Sorry if it's really simple! :p

Go into MP section, click on NEW to create a new game.. fill in the details (name, password, etc), then you will get to a selection screen that allows you to pick the map/mission. If you don't see the mission there you have put the .pbo file in the wrong folder ;-)

Bless you my son.

Run arma2oa.exe to start your game and put everything in the OA folders. So MPMissions under OA instead of the ArmA2 folder. Think of ArmA2 as nothing more than a big mod for OA now, instead of a separate game.

Thankyou both for the replies, but it was actually because I had DayZ + betapatch installed so I just moved them out of the folders and it decided to appear!
