Arma 2 Army of the Czech Republic not working.
I bought the Steam version of ACR, but after downloading it no seperate launch option apeared, as with BAF. I tried launching Operation Arrowhead and CO, but no ACR content apeared in the expansions menu, or the editor. Is this a problem with my PC, or somthing wrong with the brand-new Steam version of ACR? Please post if you had the same problem.

So I right-clicked on Steam and launched as admin then I verified the integrity of the game files. It told me that one file needed to be downloaded again. Then I ran Arma 2 Combined Operations and the installation of the new DLC finally happened. It still didn't show up in-game right away at that time but exiting and then launching the game again this time around selecting Arma2: Operation Arrowhead and NOT Combined Operations did the trick for me.

So it works even though it's a bit iffy to install. I was pretty annoyed last night and opened a support ticket on BI's website -guess I don't have to wait to hear back from them. :)' (end quote)


I confirm that this works!
Restart you're PC before doing this.

Mine has been crashing to desktop on startup since the first time I played. I had to work very hard to get it to run, then it crashed during the first missions and it CTD's on startup now. I also freshly reinstalled all the Arma games and DLC before this to get it to work the first time but now I can't play at all...I have no mods for the game.

Restart you're PC befor doing this.

I bought Army of the Czech Republic and it finished its download from steam. It is nowhere to be found in Operation Arrowhead or Combined Operations! I've tried what you suggested but there was no prompt to verify the integrity of the game files, or to tell me it needed to re download, which also resulted in the installation not happening!

Arma 2 is SO Fkin Cool

Yea but Bohemia is stupid to release pretty buggy Games...

@matthew.a.sharp: To verify integrity of game cache/files you right click on Operation Arrowhead, open "View Downloadable Content' then when the new window comes up go to 'Local Content' and the verify files/cache option should be there. Again, start fresh by restarting you're PC and logging in after runing as admin. or I don't think it will work.

I've got it loaded - updated ARMA 2, OA, PMC & BAF to latest versions, ran as admin, ran with -mod=ACR but I've still got a load of missing textures and objects eg Cannot load texture ca\plants2\clutter\data\c_grasstall_ca.paa. Anyone got any clue

Okay, fixed..dont need to do all the other stuff people say.....download in steam, right click on steam and run as admin, then go to play the operation arrowhead and the it will finish patching, then play the game, enjoy :) steam needs to fix these problems

@Combined Overwatch: I don't know if mods are compatible, so try doing this without DayZ.

@sargent.stephen2: Same thing. Try a clean start- no mods, no DayZ- and follow what I posted. Then it might work.

@maleman112: 'Glad it worked for you so easily. I had to do all the steps:)

if you still can't get it to work try accessing it through British Armed Forces DLC.
GD1138 Sep 25, 2012 @ 8:48pm 
@Punkster: Are you sure? British Armed Forces launches the exact same content that Operation Arrowhead does. It made no diferance when I was getting ACR to work.
