Finally the 1.60 patch is now out for Christmas! Hopefully will offer some better multiplayer experience (fingers crossed)
I will be patching the servers tomorrow morning (Friday).
More details about the patch can be found here:
Should people have problems tomorrow connecting, I may roll back one or more of the servers, we will see how things go.
The update of the server is going to take a while... as it needs all the updated files from the client version of 1.60 to be uploaded...
Update: I'm using the steam version of Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead, with the added Arma 2, Arma PMC and Arma BAF DLCs. I had to run each of the programs to from the steam page to get it to update correctly and finally went back to the Arma 2 OA shortcut and it runs. Now to sort the server.
Looks like there is a minor problem with the steam version with BAF and there will be a hotfix released today to correct this. If you have Arma 2 OA with the DLC BAF pack either wait for steam to push a minor hotfix or you can sort it out using this patch from BIS http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?t=129101
A point of interest I'm using the Launch Options setting for Arma OA set with -winxp -nosplash so there is less of wait when it launches and the -winxp apparently improves performance?
