Six Updater Explained in 18 Easy Steps:

Step 13Step 14Step 15Step 16Step 17


First uninstall any old versions of six updater on your computer as well as any mods we are currently using. We are going to get them all fresh. Then download and unzip the optional [LOL] Majors gdt Clientside Addons *OPTIONAL* - 2011-06-04 - @gdt if you wish.
Ok Here we go (the steps correspond to the pictures above):

Step 01: Download and install the latest version of Six Updater. HERE --> http://www.six-updater.net/p/download.html
Step 02: Launch Six Updater (the first launch is slow - may take several minutes to update itself).
Step 03: Select the "Server Browser" tab.
Step 04: Right-click in the large grey window and select "Sync gamespy servers list".
Step 05: Wait while it populates list (may take a few minutes).
Step 06: On right side type LOL in "Server Name" section and click "Search".
Step 07: You should have only one or two results.
Step 08: Tick the "Favorite" checkbox on LOL New Majors server.
Step 09: Select the "Preset" tab then choose "New Preset".
Step 10: Rename the new preset to "LOL" or "Majors".
Step 11: Then choose LOL New Majors in the dropdown "Server" box.
Step 12: This picture indicates your addon list if the optional "@gdt" is not in your ARMA2 directory.
Step 13: This picture indicates your addon list if you have the optional "@gdt" in your ARMA2 directory.
Step 14: Click the "Home" tab.
Step 15: Click the small arrow under the green icon in the upper left and choose "Install or Update.
Step 16: After some time, your screen should look like this. Be patient you are downloading about 2GB of addons.
Step 17: Click that same small arrow under the green icon in the upper left and select "Join Server".
Step 18: Play on Majors and stop whining about how hard Six Updater is.

Life has gotten much easier.
    Step 1) Install the old version of Six updater available here: http://cdn.withsix.com/software/su/su-setup.exe
    Step 2) Open the program and follow the video: http://youtu.be/qyZLOz420Xc
    Step 3) Additional recommended albeit optional addons are available in our download section
    Step 4) Make sure you remove the glt_f16_a2_config.pbo file and it's bisign files from your @GLT_F16/Addons folder every time after you run an update from the Six Updater. It may reinstall those files each time you run the updater
    Step 5) Try Arma 2 Launcher to launch your game with the addons for our server

Six updater has changed a bit and is a bit simpler to use:

Open Six Updater.

let it run ping test or update servers if it asks.

Go to the servers tab in the main window.

Find [LOL] New Majors, right click on it, select "create preset using this server" (or whatever it says along those lines).

It should appear in the left window.

Right click on it go to the bottom of the menu to the green lettering. In the drop down window that pops up select "install or update".

Let SU do it's thing.

When complete you should have all of the addons.

While you wait check out these 2 links:

Client side mods and starting programs

Creating a batch file to start the game
