patch 1.63 is getting more and more annoying, i have all automatic update disabled in steam arma 2 OA, the both methods worked great for me for months, but then ~
about 2+ month ago I could downgrade 1.63 Arma2 in the easy way:
- Delete the exe's, verify in steam, start, install 103718(1.62) in dayzcommander
1+ month ago, the method stopped working, so I had to start to do this:
- Delete the exe's, BUT now I had to choose in steam arma2 OA properties under beta the 1.62 older version, verify, start, install 103718(1.62) in dayzcommander
2-3 week ago, it stopped working again, and now i had to combine the methods in this forum:
- Delete the exe's, shut down steam, delete regedit arma 2 OA, start steam, choose in steam arma 2 OA properties the beta to 1.62, verify, start, and install 103718(1.62) in dayzcommander
1 week ago, also this stopped working, now steam won't start arma OA with beta 1.62, now i had to:
- Delete the exe's, shut down steam, delete regedit arma 2 OA, start steam, choose in steam arma 2 OA properties the beta to 1.62, verify, BUT NOW arma 2 OA in beta 1.62 state won't start, but "try to start" was enough so dayzcommander recognized arma2 OA, install 103718(1.62) in dayzcommander, but since steam 1.62 version wont start, i had to put back arma 2 OA to "normal" none beta state, WITHOUT verify, now arma 2 OA starts again, also in dayzcommander, but if I verified arma 2 OA in "normal" non beta status, it switched back to 1.63, even I had 103718(1.62) installed in dayzcommander
1 day ago, it...yeah you know, stopped working...
But this time, i dont have a solution.
If i set arma OA back to "normal" no beta, it instant update to 1.63 even having autoupdate deactivaded
If i leave 1.62 beta, it won't start, unless u start it without battle client, but it will not allow u to play on dayz mod's without battle client.
The reason why i had to switch versions, was simply searching new dayz servers over weeks, some have 1.62, some have 1.63, and now im defeated by 1.63, but really want go back to 1.62 without reinstall
I sent steam a report, they shall communicate with arma 2 support, and make beta 1.62 version work again, or even better find a solution for a simple down grade in dayzcommander, like it was always possible earlier time long ago.
