What is Compatibility Data?

  • Compatibility Data allows players who wish to participate in multiplayer content containing Spearhead 1944 CDLC assets (vehicles, weapons, etc.) without the need to buy it. It uses the same server key as the CDLC.
  • It also allows players to preview and try out CDLC assets in the Arma 3 Virtual Arsenal.
  • Subscribing to this Workshop item makes it possible for potential buyers to try out many of this DLC's assets prior to purchasing.
  • Be aware that access to the CDLC's terrain remains exclusive to owners of the CDLC, plus restrictions to the use of non-owned content apply.

In simple terms: You can preview all assets in Arsenal, you preview the terrain in Eden in camera mode, and you can combine it with other mods to be able to play on another terrain and alongside or against SPE assets - if you want to pick up weapons, gear or get into the driver/gunner/commander position of SPE vehicles, you will get the usual DLC notification and are unable to use these assets yourself.


After subscribing to this Workshop item and downloading the data, you can visit the "MODS" tab in the Arma 3 Launcher, load the Spearhead 1944 Compatibility Data, and hit PLAY.

If you are unsure which type of data you are running (this Workshop item or CDLC), check in the Arma 3 Launcher app.

  • Spearhead 1944 will be loaded in DLC tab if you own the CDLC.
  • Spearhead 1944 Creator CDLC Compatibility Data For Non-Owners will be loaded in MOD tab if you are running this compatibility data mod.

If you have purchased Spearhead 1944, you can unsubscribe from the compatibility data mod.


You need to download your server with switch '-beta creatordlc' in steam command line.
You will see a folder 'spe' in your Arma server folder.
