Do what it says in the first post (install that file), than scroll to "+++ NON BETA + MODS + STARTUP PARAMETERS +++".

Hey I have the steam version Here is where your OA folder should be located

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead

In program files look for steam folder then in that folder is steam apps folder then the common should have a list of folders for games you have installed OA will be in there you can then use mod folders as you normally would

I got it now, thank you so much. I really appreciate all the help, I was actually hoping I could somehow run the game without steam, perhaps by moving the folder out of the steam folder or something, but it doesn't allow me. Steam is such a thorn in my side to be honest, but the game wasn't available in stores near me and it was the only site I found it available for download.
