At the top it says:

 

USE THIS ARMA 2 OA BETA: 103718

 

Then later it says:

 

* [Prerequisites] - beta-patch (http://www.arma2.com...uild_103419.zip)

 

So which beta patch is it?

Also, I'm already using a more recent beta version than those two. I'm guessing that's ok or should I downgrade to avoid conflicts?
