Default Can't play online : stuck on "Waiting for host"

Hey,

I'd like to know why can't I play the game anymore ? It was working 2 days ago, but today it's stuck on "Waiting for host"

I guess it has something to do with the version of the game ?
What patch do I have to apply ? Can't find a 1.60.94445 version anywhere
I'm using the Steam version of the game + Six launcher

Could you please explain me ? :/ I see no informations anywhere

You sure you've got the right forum? PR doesn't require a beta, so this might be where you should be looking maybe...

No, I'm talking about Project reality for Arma 2

I want to play on this server :


But when I try to connect using the Six launcher, I'm stuck on a black screen

I successfuly played a game earlier by launching the game using praa.exe in the Steam folder, but I got some strange errors (that got away after a few seconds, but still )

Try reinstalling battleeye ... that has fixed a couple of connection issues for me in the past.

Don't use latest beta. All betas above 94700 are no longer in branch of 1.6 build but are 1.61 and requires 1.61 version of server along with new battleye for 1.61

Uninstal or delete beta folder and get 94700 and it will work.

Well, I installed it, and it's not working with the Six Launcher.
I didn't install anything in the first place, I just launched the Six launcher and I think it updated the game (or Steam did it by itself...)

I get all kind of errors using the launcher




Launching by using the .exe works fine and I don't even get the errors now, so it's all good. It's just the fact that it's not working with the six launcher that is strange

This. You added all dayz addons in your main addons folder thats why you cant play on any decent ( non dayz ) server.

Use mod folders as described here, and get yourself a nice launcher. Makes things much easier.

To play PR you must launch PR from its shortcut, you cant use launchers, or any other addons.

Where does it say that? According to the screenshot the DayZ files are in "Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead\@DayZ\Addons" - which would seem to be the correct place.

Can you elaborate further please, particularly the bit I underlined? Since you're wearing R-tags, and therefore representing the team, I'd like to understand that comment fully.

Thanks
