Question Installing Steam OA and DLC onto a Non Steam ArmA2?

I wish to purchase Operation Arrowhead and the DLC for Steam but I already have a non retail copy of ArmA2. When I buy these how will I combine OA and the DLC with the non retail ArmA2?

it's possible to combine via batch (the -mod= commandline method) ...

another method is install the retail A2 into OA directory

automatic method for detecting seperate install is being worked on by us

Alternatively you can install OA via steam, run it at least once and then use a 3rd Party launcher to launch it as Combined Ops together with your previous install of Arma2.

I use Six Updater...

It works really well and is also a great way of organisiing mods and addons created by the community (which is where the beauty of Arma lies).
