Who wants free games?

The Sun are giving away Arma II, Men of War and Tower Bloxx Deluxe. Get the codes here. You’ll need to create an account on Green Man Gaming but the codes work and cost nothing, but only for this weekend!

It’ll work eventually, I hope! Arma II is a 7GB+ download and beware of your free space while it installs. You’ll need twice that space because it installs from a zip file.

Every time I tried to run it I got the error, “G001:I’m sorry there appear to be some files missing.” Unfortunately Capsule wouldn’t let me uninstall it either. I fired off a support request but in the meantime I discovered where the game files are downloaded!

To fix it, I renamed a directory called “game_root” in C:UsersmylocalnameAppDataLocalGreen Man GamingARMA II – PC and restarted Capsule. I’m not sure if renaming the directory or restarting Capsule fixed the problem but it’s installing the game again and it recreated the game_root directory so no harm done. Phew.
