Sickboy is pleased to announce the release of the v0.9 patcher program

I am pleased to announce the release of the v0.9 patcher program...
This is version v0.9 which is converting the complete ArmA Czech or German version v1.02, aswell as the german downloadversion, to English, INCLUDING the Multiplayer Missions and Editor Templates, INCLUDING the SP Missions/Campaign Briefings/Overview!!!!

As some people were complaining about the complexity of the patching, I changed to the PatchWise program that s_hole recommended, thanks again, since v0.7!

This Patch is known to work with ArmA Versions :
LANG: German, Czech

How do I get my game patched up to ArmA v1.02?

Method A :

Take back the original files from Patchwise.bak folder in your ArmA folder, and overwrite the files in your ArmA folder with them

If you used the chopper patch, put back the Addons\air.bak to Addons\air.pbo or if you have a backup yourself... put that one back

Patch v1.02

Method B :

Reinstall the Game
Patch v1.02
Play & Wait for my upgraded patches


Why don't you just release addons instead of patches??

We are very sorry for the (minor) complexity of the installation, but we, as we are only fans just like you,
wish to be on the safe side concerning Copyrights etc., nor want to piss off anyone, that's why we choose this road!
Idea Games noted that distributing edited versions of official original ArmA game content, could result in lawsuits.

Which files need to be put back to succesfully upgrade to the Official ArmA v1.01 patch?

    - arma.exe
    - Addons\Language.pbo
    - DTA\bin.pbo
    - Campaign\ca.pbo
    - Missions\*.pbo
    - Missions\Tutorial\*.pbo
    - MPMissions\*.pbo
    - MPTemplates\*.pbo

You can copy these files from your dvd, back into your installation folder.
Some files are packed as .GZ(ip), you need to unGZIP them with WinRAR (, I personally use Total Commander for that ( though, also heard some ppl are having trouble with WinRAR. If you don't wish to do the hassle or it doesn't work; Reinstall the game and then apply patch v1.01

So will the Czech/German version have English Dialogue inside? What version must I buy now that will incorporate the English voices in-game?

All Voices are in English, in all versions of ArmA, except some reporter voices .. which have subtitles anyway, which gives it a nice foreign country feeling anyway

Ok i have the German version and wanted to know when i uninstall the game, will all these patched files be deleted with the uninstall.

When you uninstall the game, these files probably remain in your ArmA folder. As there is no user data in the ArmA folder, it is safe to assume that you can just remove the ArmA folder with Windows Explorer from your harddisk.
All settings and other configuration data is in your Windows Profile & Documents.

Notes & Warnings :

ALWAYS backup files that you are going to edit, move, replace, etc. etc.

DO NOT use WinPBO/PboX/etc. to unpbo Armed Assault datafiles... you WILL have corrupted files.

Eliteness (Make/De)Pbo program

Method A :
(unpacking and repacking the pbo's):
Unpbo the Addons\languages.pbo and DTA\bin.pbo with the Eliteness tool
Edit the stringtable.csv's (There are many in folders in languages.pbo) and

Replace:Code Sample

With:Code Sample

(You can also put "Czech" on the place of "German" or "Polish" or "Russian" instead of "English", to get those languages)

Repbo the languages.pbo and bin.pbo with Eliteness tool

Method B : (just editing the pbo files in e.g. editplus):

Open Addons\Lanaguages.pbo and Dta\bin.pbo in an editor

Search and Replace (CTRL + H usually):Code Sample

With:Code Sample

(You can also put "Czech" on the place of "German" or "Polish" or "Russian" instead of"English", to get those languages)

Save the files

Same goes for MULTIPLAYER missions, they have also English included stringtable, and even briefings and overviews!
For now I just unpbo'd them, replaced the briefing.czech and overview.czech by the english ones, edited the stringtable.csv as with the rest of the game and voila.

The stringtable files are exactly as with Flashpoint, there is just not a working setting that we can change, to switch language,... so far..., since in the arma.cfg, there is already: language=English, and nowhere else I can find a config setting for language etc.
