GAMESPY SHUTDOWN: 5 steps to add your game to steam



Gamespy is shutting down support and it's got a lot of people worried.


We have been informed that there is a way to transfer your game to steam, if you don't already own the game through steam.


This is a very simple process but it will require a new download/install of the game via steam when done. So backup your mods before removing the old version!


Step one:      Find your CD/Activation key

Step two:       Open your steam LIBRARY

Step Three:   In the bottom left click ADD A GAME...

Step Four:    Click "Activate a Product on Steam"

Step Five:     Follow the activation process using your CD/Activation key as the product key.


If you bought the game digitally through amazon you will need to log into your amazon account and in: 

 Your Games and Software Library You will find your activation key.

Nope: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=7480-WUSF-3601



Which retail / digital CD Keys are accepted on Steam?


Arma 2: Combined Operations CD Keys in this format:  1AB2C-D3FGH-456I7
Note: Only digital copies of this game may be registered with Steam
My Key for OA from Greenman Gaming is not in that format. Only Arma 2: Combined Operations CD keys can be added to Steam.

I have uninstalled  with steam arma and arma OA, reinstalled with steam

uninstalled with steam manually deleted the directories and re installed again and still cant get into any servers.

I can join servers from my work laptop (same account)

soo my servers have been empty since update 5 days ago to   Vilayer overpoch servers

I used dayz commander to re download epoch

I also manually downloaded it from epochmod.com

"nothing is working" 

I googled issue and found there was same issue with and the CA folder for free ama versions or something

its been awhile but I think I paid for arma 2, steam says I already own it 

ANY HELP please ............

when I try to join an epoch server I get this error


z\addons\dayz_code_system\ca\functions\init.sqf not found



finally can get into epoch I had to add a new launch parameter  @expansion\beta\expansion


 -skipIntro  -mod=@DayzOverwatch;@DayZ_Epoch;@expansion\beta\expansion -noSplash -noFilePatching -world=empty


when I try to join any other mod like overwatch I get this error

what do we do about the steam Ip reporting? , 


Didnt really get this (https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/server.cfg)

steamPort = <number>; default 8766, defines port for communication with STEAM services, needs to be unique for each dedicated server within one OS instance / network interface steamQueryPort = <number>; default 27016, defines port for server's STEAM query, needs to be unique for each dedicated server within one OS instance / network interface



iv removed the gamespy ip reporting
