Hello, im a real Arma 2 junkie. But 3 months ago there was a new patch, so I downloaded and install this patch. Since this time, nothing is going well in the Multiplayer. Everytime there comes the Message "BattleEye unknown Gameversion" and im kicked off the server. I tried so many patches the last 3 months ago and everytime same message. So who can help me ? Should I install the game again and patch it up ? Did anyone can write me a list of links of the Patches I need ?

Thanks Elias Oriley

(sry for my english, im german, my english is very bad.)

First list which games you have, just Arma 2: OA or are you running Arma 2: CO?
Also tell us where you bought the game from (retail, sprocket,steam).

You mention you tried many different patches, I am not sure wether applying different official patches to your install is a good idea. You should simply follow our patching guide which you can find here:
- Arma patching guide

I recommend you to unistall, manually delete the entire Bohemia folder, reboot and re-install.
Depending on the game you bought (retail, Sprocket, Steam) you need to follow specific installation steps, patch the game and have fun :-)

No, uninstall the game by using the uninstaller. After that was done succesfull manually remove the Bohemia Interactive folder. You can find that folder where you first installed the game.

Than reboot, put the DVD in your drive, install Arma 2, install Arma 2: OA (install it inside your Arma 2 folder, it should find that location automatically), install Arma 2: BAF, install Arma 2: PMC.
Than start the game and check which is your game version (lower right side of the main menu). I think the anniversary version is 1.59 but I am not sure about that.

Than, apply patch 1.60 (see the patching guide I linked you to above) and start the game again. Try to join a MP game.
If you still recieve the battleye error you may have to manually install battleye:
