I added arma II CO to steam and activated the CD key, I have the game installed from the disc.  I went to update and steam wants to download the entire game again.  All I need is the patch so I can install the community updates for the conversion.    Thanks

Hi ChileMike Welcome to the IF Fan Forums!
I believe if memory serves me that just updating the game as your doing should apply the latest patch, as v1.63 is the latest.
If the game is reinstalling then I'm assuming that its doing just that, cant say 100%, i would suggest wait til its done and then go
ingame and look at the menu to see what version it is.

I myself had to get Arma2Co on steam just to get the update, i tried to add my digital copy to steam but it didn't work for what reason idk.

Hope that helps.

There is a way to get the update without downloading both games all over again!

I stumbled over the answer some weeks ago.  Do a Google search and you will find it.

Joe98, please don't make it too mysterious here [smile]

I registered my Arma (disk) versions to get the updates as soon as I saw that I had to do this.
But the result was bad, my attempts ended into some new installs and frustration without end.
By this I lost interest going ahead with IF44 in the moment [frown]

Please tell us the correct -how to- for AII and AIII
without downloading the games again, without overwriting our settings, here inside this forum.
This would help me (and others) a lot. TIA.

Update is on steam only, only way to get the 1.63 is to have the game on steam.
See the official patch page for 1.63: http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=26101

Look to where it says Installation I quote:

Quote:
Installation:
Due to the fact that Steam based matchmaking requires Steam to work, this update is only available through Steam.

So unless you use Tunngle for mp lan, steam is the new alternative to gamespy as we all know that gamespy went out of business.
The changelog is massive though its the accumulation of all the fixes, so its worth it other then that matchmaking crap that you need steam for.
So your best bet like I had to do is buy arma2OA on steam and meet the requirements to convert Vanilla IF, or just play with vanilla with Major Mayhem and group.

Its AMRA2CO as in Arma2 Combined Ops.
Conversion tool will locate your IF folder np, the issue you will have is when you patch not installation, as patch requires latest version of arma2CO,
suggest you try the steam method in your link, when i tried that in 2014 as i redid mine, i had to actually buy arma2CO (Arma2OA) on steam
to get the full 1.63 patch as its only available through steam, then it worked.
