thanks Foxhound for the heads up. i got mixed up there a little.
--oh can i do this instead...with RFT already installed and patched to 1.6, i'll install arma2free, patch it to 1.11, and then run RFT patch 1.6...?
just finished downloading Arma2Free...will do as you say this evening and see what happens. I've been itching to try out Chernarus...getting burnt up here in Takistan and Zargabad...gotta get my complexion back.
Added 48 minutes later:
oh and i saw this method also in the link above...will this work also?
"No, you do not have to reinstall.
You can just install A2: free and than add this to yor shortcut:
"-mod=c:\location\of\ArmA 2 Free;..."
NOTE: You need provide the full link to the ArmA 2 Free folder.
NOTE: You need to enclose the parameter in quotes, if it contains spaces in the path."
