ArmA 2 patch 1.03 has been applied successfully.

If you leave the version 1.0 works normally, but when trying to upgrade from version 1.0 to 1.3 appears these problems, that after converting to the two dvds in the scheme of Peterf1999, someone has this problem?

XP Professional 32 bits SP3
All works fine from 1.01 to 1.03 (vista x86 SP2)



edit1: If u have a german version of the game, u must apply a german patch not euro one.
If the patch is right the files above are damaged, recopy those files from original dvd9 to dvd5 (Arma2_2)

Armed Assault 2 (DVD9->2xDVD5)

For all version

1. create two folders:
- 1. Arma2_1
- 2. Arma2_2

2. copy the dvd9 content to ARMA2_1 folder

3. move DirectX folder from ARMA2_1 to ARMA2_2

4. copy autorun.inf and data\ArmA2.ico from ARMA2_1 to ARMA2_2
and edit it by removing the open=autorun.exe line

5. edit setup.dat(use notepad), add this code after F:Uninstall.csv:UnInstall.csv
Code:
C:Arma2_2:dvd2
D:ARMA2\AddOns:AddOns
so your setup.dat will look like this
Code:
F:Uninstall.exe:UnInstall.exe
F:Uninstall.csv:UnInstall.csv

C:Arma2_2:dvd2:
D:ARMA2\AddOns:AddOns

K2:D

S:ArmA 2:arma2.exe
6. make a New Text Document.txt and rename it to dvd2(without extension)

7. make folder ARMA2\addons in Arma2_2.

8. move some file from Arma2_1\ARMA2\addons to Arma2_2\ARMA2\addons
till it fits for one dvd.


notes:
-you can patch the game to 1.05 than use the file to make a already patched installer
-you can compress file using gzip or Win-GZ

some explanation about setup.dat
D:A:B -> copy a directory A and rename it to B
F:A:B -> copy a fileA and rename it to B
L:900 -> check disk space needed in byte
C:A:B -> ask for new dvd/cd with label A and contain file B


anyone know how to make setup.crc?
what crc is used, and use what program to calc the crc?

Anything for MULTI7?
My version does not contain "pbo" files. They are "pbo.gz" ...
Thx in advance!
stefboombastic, that was not a big problem. I've used the PL version of the game for the conversion, it to has pbo.gz files - basically spiking pbo files with compression. Just follow peterf1999 conversion, copying the same files just with pbo.gz at end, and after that use
Win-GZ to decompress all pbo.gz files on the dvd2 (not dvd1!), and you're get pbo files. That's all. File size difference in my case approx. 200mb.

To get to the point - peterf1999 works, as always great! THX!
