When I try to play Arma II , all i get is Red X's once i get to the MP screen. Not one room is joinable to me. I understand i need patches to bring me up to date with everyone else. And i have tried to DL patches. But when i get back in, still same thing ....all red X's. I believe I am not installing these in either the correct order or I am not installing them in the right manner. I Dl them and place them in my Arma folder. I thought maybe they automatically update. But now i am not sure. I dont see anything about clicking here to install.......... I live in america, I have excellent Internet speed with a great pc so i see no issues there. Need help if anyone can. I am an Advid player of Arma Gold and would like to see what Arma II has to offer. Any input on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thx.

Welocme to Armaholic *HI*

Download the latest patch always, afaik you don't need to download every patch after your version of the game... extract the setup.exe and then run it, they application does the rest..... simply placing it in the root folder wont do anything as it isn't altering any of the game files.

Latest patch which is 1.59 can be found here.

And you can extract it using any archive program, WinRAR or 7zip for example.

Thx again viper , Im on the road and playing, appreciate your help alot. I <3 Arma and from what i have been experiencing so far from Arma II. My <3 has grown that much more for it. Look forward to seeing ya in a game sometime. BTW, In Arma 1, I loved coop games called Evo. When everyone plays together as a team in a coop against the computer ,taking town to town until the map is beaten. Around 13 to 14 towns. Does Arma II Servers offer the same kind of game type? And what are the game type names / Server names?

Yeah there is still Evo around as well as warfare/domination and the latest gamemode.. insurgency, you can just filter those names to get a server list with them, but if its not in the server name it wont show them all, so best thing to do is keep an eye on the player count on the right.

Come to think of it I don't think evolution is in OA but its pretty much the same as Domination, some servers that host that publicly are 3para etc just filter 3PARA and all their servers should come up. :-)
