Bad version, Server rejected connection

15 posts in this topic

I am trying to join my clans server, and every time i do, i get 'Bad version, server rejected connection'

I have updated EVERYTHING i possibly can.

I've un-installed all my Arma 2 add ons and Arma 2 it's self.

I've re-installed everything that is required

I've re-updated all required add ons

I've been able to access this server before and have played it for a long while. but this is a new problem for me.

I have had no problems prior to this.

I have tried through DayZ Commander, Six Launcher and Arma 2's standard multiplayer server searcher.

Anyone have any ideas on how i can gain access to my clans server?

Have you tried downloading the latest beta? Sometimes DayZ commander doesn't display the latest patch.

http://www.arma2.com/beta-patch.php

It's pretty simple if you havent done it before, DayZ commander will, once you've installed the beta, automatically start using it. All you really need to do is keep clicking buttons.

As TheDesigner said, you need to go and download the latest beta patch. 'Bad Version' means that the version of the patch you are using for the game is outdated. Alternatively, you can go and open your Arma II OA folder and scroll down until you see the shortcut called "Launch Arma2 OA Beta Patch". You just double click that, and the game runs automatically and updates the patch for you. This fixed my errors with the beta patch updating; it's pretty quick.

I created an account just for this question. I have the same problem. Where is this Arma 2 OA folder you guys are talking about. IT is not in the steam folder..

Same problem here..

Figured it out, when you download it, open it with winwar. Then double click the program, and keep clicking/following the install wizard. It should install, and then your good. Thats all I had to do.

I checked the problem !

when i install all the latest updates, i even can´t joint lots of servers !

and why, coz the version i am using is still an old one, how to see the real version, in the main menu of arma 2 all down right ya see what version ya using !

but how changing the version, if its not posible with the dayz commander, or manualy install ! ?

Lots of servers can't/don't update immediately so when it's up for you as a player it might not have been run on the server yet.

I've found Play with Six is the most reliable of the installers for the mods and it has TONS to choose from too...

Sometimes the server settings can be messed up too so it's kicking people it shouldn't.

I download and run the installer for 99515 (or whatever dayZ commander says the servers are running) from the update site, and install it, but when I run it I get the same error and I check the version in the game and it says its a diferent one.

Try going into the Arma II OA folder then Expansions > Beta, copy the arma2oa file to the arma 2 OA folder, you can move the current file in there, else where, and just use this as the launcher, seemed to resolve the problem for me.

I have a fix for this, I had this exact problem, download this CMD file, place it inside the ArmA 2 OA directory, and make a short-cut and place it on the desktop, you then run that CMD to open up dayz/arma and you should run dayz with the correct version if they have been installed. I Have made the script, it has trouble shooting so will work with most directories :) Hope this helped! I know I am very late but I hope this may help others!

INSTALL THE ARMA 2:OA BETA [From Steam]

 

-Open DayZ Commander

-Settings

-Tick: Launch using Steam, Replace original ARMA 2:OA files with Beta so Steam works.

 

NOW TRY IT?!!

 

It worked for me perfectly:))

      I propose to add some useful books to the titles that we have in-game (literature classics lol) to help players through the game without the need of consulting an outside source:
      The First Aid guides would contain all the info about diseases, use of medicine and bandaging, how to use different medical stuff. Survival guides would contain Food sources that can be found in the woods, traps, how to light fire, crafting, maybe some natural medicine, info about animals behaviour, etc Once that the environmental variables start affecting players, there will be lots of deaths due to diseases, hyper/hypo thermias , poisoning, infections, hunger, thirst, etc. 
      I believe that having some info ingame to help players with that, without making a "tutorial" would keep things real and simulate a real-life scenario.
