Install Cold War Assault?
Make sure you PC/LapTop Supports It
Run The Downloaded SetUp OR The CD Install
When you install OFP OR CWA the serial number is Actualy Very Important
(So Read This Caurfuly before you proceed)
When you select a serial number thats NOT yours, it limits Online use BUT
more importantly If YOU have an OFP key that you do use ONLINE
You Should Use It For This Install As Well... why?
Well when you installed OFP and Picked a Player Name
your game creates another code from your Serial & Your Name
these codes are passed via game servers (if you play online)
So if you Install this version with your OFP serial & use the same Player Name......
you get to KEEP your STATS on game servers
and any reputation you have built up as a player with people on them servers ;)
This box may seam trivial "but if your going to be creating Mod Folder ShortCuts"
(wich for some mods "YOU HAVE TO" then this is where you need to make the RIGHT CHOICE)
Ticking The Box Will Put The Shortcut Launch Folder Here
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Arma Cold War Assault
(IE: anyone who can log onto the computer can access the game and run it)
NOT Ticking The Box Will Put The Shortcut Launch Folder Here
C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR NAME\Start Menu\Programs\Arma Cold War Assault
(IE: only You can see the game when you log onto the computer)
Well that one doesn't need explaining realy does it?
But just incase it does.... YOU HAVE TO AGREA TO USE IT
Default Install Path Is Recommended To Avoid Issues....Yes you can Install It Over Operation Flashpoint IF YOU WISH
(But I Wouldn't Recommend It To Be Honest)
Now Some MISC Shots While Loading....
^^^^^ ooo :D
At the End Of Install You Get This Box
Opening the README & The Game Is A Stupid Default Setting
So Untick Readme & Launch Game To Make Sure It Works
If you already have OFP GOTY Installed:
you can Copy These Files
Into These Folders
C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\Arma Cold War Assault\AddOns\Voicerh.PBO
C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\Arma Cold War Assault\Campaigns\REDHAMMER.PBO
Then you can play Red Hammer Within the CWA Interface.
