Anyone play this and know if I can if I have Arma 2 but not the Combined Operations part?

Edit- ok so Operation Arrowhead is required along with Arma 2,but do not need to be purchased together.

    After seeing some vids i desided to DL this from amazon.  Wow bad idea!  After 12 hours (my fault), it said the DL was corrupt and need to be re downloaded.  I never bought a digital DL from amazon before but im thinking it was a bad move.  I would have just ordered the DVDs but the eta was 1-2 months!

    Careful how you buy it!

    According to the guide, you can have ArmA 2 FREE and buy only Arrowhead.. However, I wouldn't take such a risk. And I would avoid steam version like plague, get it from sprocket instead (Isn't that actually cheaper than steam?)

    I did put one important link into the thread i opened recently (Details), good describtion what you need and how to install it.

    http://www.mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/thread/351431/DayZ-Zombie-RPG-Survival-Multiplayer.html

    You can buy the game directly on the Arma 2 main page for the same price like on Amazon/Steam. If you want to play with the Arma 2 free version you can get the needed Arma 2 Arrowhead for 12 bucks, webpage posted aswell. But with the free version the graphic details are limited...

    I did start playing this mod some days ago, but I had already Arma 2 CO since I prefer the military multiplayer part and some of its awesome mods. Neverless DayZ is quiete funny for a while.

    I have bought several games throught Amazon and used their downloader and had no problems so far.You might want to try to run the installer again.I had a box copy of Arma 2 and bought Operation Arrowhead through that gamesrocket link from someones post in one of the recent DayZ threads because it was $12 there and $19 on steam.

    I left it on all last night to download and when I ran the installer this morning before I left for work when it finished I got some error saying something might have gone wrong dont remember what exactlyy as i was in a hurry but I just ran the installer again and it completed and is now updating my copy of Arma 2, which I had installed from a disc, to version 1.07 from 1.01.

    Hopefully all goes well for us both =p.

    not to be a prick, as i have checked out this mod on youtube find it interesting..

    but this is an FPS mod not an MMO, you might have better luck asking on FPSguru as they deal with FPS games... mmorpg might remove this thread as its not related to MMOs :/ 

     

    though the mod does look neat, kinda suprizing that modders generally have better vision of gaming then high grade developers... lol

    Why avoid the steam version...

     

    1. steam is awesome and has a great deal on it.

     

    2. the mod works perfect with the steam version.

     

    3. Steam is the best and probally the easiest way to get games.

     

    As for using a free version, I have read on the official DayZ forums thats it possible but you will be missing some of the high rez textures i believe. I already had both so I never tried, your best bet is to head to the official forums and find out :)

     

    Its well worth buying ARMA II for this mod its awesoem trying to survive inthe world. Also it does have some MMO elements I guess as your character is persistant over every server. You say you log onto EU1 get a ton of gear log off for the night then log onto US1 or whatever you will still have all the gear you picked up playing on EU1 the day before, plus hopefulyl once the devs get it stable enough they will allow bigger server I see they are already testing soem 60 player ones and 75 player ones :)

     

    I think ARMA II supports over 200 player but i cant qutie remember.
