TOH Bundle pack with Take on Hinds
I purchased the bundle pack and TOH works just fine. But, Take on Hinds does not appear anywhere. WHen I go to Steam, it says that I own it. I select play and it takes me back to TOH. It even gives me two product keys for both games, but I cannot find Take on Hinds anywhere in my computer. I'm confused. Any suggestions? Steam support still has not responded either.

1. Close Steam.
2. Start up Steam as Administrator (go to your start menu and right-click over the Steam icon and select 'Start as Administrator').
3. In Steam, right click over TOH and select 'Properties'. Select 'Local Files' and then 'Verify Integrity of Game Cache'. Allow Steam to check the game files on your system.
4. Once this is completed, start TOH and you should see the Hinds DLC dialogue pop-up. The files will load into TOH.
5. In-game, don't forget to enable Hinds in the 'Expansions' option. You're good to go.

Hope this helps.

Still no luck with this one.

First time I ran it the above steps, it said three files needed to be validated and would be reaquired. The second time I ran it, one file needed to be validated and reaquired. I have ran it several times and that one file still shows up unvalidated, not sure that that one file is. I cannot even find a Take on hinds folder in the local cache when you search it. It is like it never downlaoded. Steam support is very slow. Any other suggestions?

Windolws 7. I have been working with support trying to resolve the issue. I found the hinds game hidding in an app folder, but it will not install. I currently renamed the steamapp folder to old_steamapp and I am reinstalling the game. We will see if this helps.

Hey Rotor, This will help you access the Hind DLC. I had to do this.

Open up your documents folder.
Find the Take on Helicoptors folder and open it.
Locate the TakeOnH.cfg file and open it with notepad.
Modify the contents between the brackets of the class ModLauncherList by adding the following lines of code (The class MOD# should be numbered to a number that is different than the noisecontroller and Rearmed numbers. you can make it 1 and then change the others accordingly i.e. 2, 3, etc. if you would like. this simply sorts the DLC in that order.):

class Mod7
{
dir="Hinds";
name="Take On Hinds";
origin="REGISTRY";
fullPath="c:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\take on helicopters\DLCsetup\Hinds";
};

This will direct the game to locate the folder for the Hinds DLC.

Save the file.
Start the game and it should ask you to approve the licensing agreement for the Hinds DLC.
Here is an excerpt of the TakeOnH.cfg file I have for an example:

class ModLauncherList
{
class Mod1
{
dir="Hinds";
name="Take On Hinds";
origin="REGISTRY";
fullPath="c:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\take on helicopters\DLCsetup\Hinds";
};


class Mod2
{
dir="NoiseControllers";
name="Take On Noisecontrollers";
origin="REGISTRY";
fullPath="C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Take On Helicopters\Noisecontrollers";
};
class Mod3
{
dir="Rearmed";
name="TKOH: Rearmed";
origin="REGISTRY";
fullPath="C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Take On Helicopters\Rearmed";
};

};

Hope this helps.

Same problem an fixed it. Relaunched Steam by right clicking and run as admin. Windows 7 64bit Pro here. Then just goto steam page for Hinds addon an click play. Game installed Hinds addon. Then Once game started... Goto Expansions Menu Item. Enable Hinds. Restart game. Done:) No revalidating files needed. Thanks to all that helped:)

Thank you so much Taoteching that finially helped me to have the Hind DLC actually working again!!

Also, to those of you who have non steam versions of Arma 2 just open steam and add it to your library using the 'Game' add nonsteam games in that menu.
