[QUOTE=Jessey;35885257]You require both ArmA 2 and ArmA 2 OA to run this?[/QUOTE] You can get ARMA 2 Free and just launch Combined Ops via Operation Arrowhed. Or so I've heard. Also, doesn't it kind of split the community by having 2 threads?
I don't know if it was just me, but I got a HUGE fps improvement this patch. Did anyone else?
There's been a patch?
Oh no, talking about the 1.5.6 patch, just took me a while to actually try it out
Can we play the mod in singleplayer ?
[QUOTE=Nanamil;35885415]Can we play the mod in singleplayer ?[/QUOTE] Not as far as I know.
okay thanks
Just uploaded a video of me and my friends playing DayZ, not really exciting or anything, just a typical playthrough with some commentary, hope its at least a little bit enjoyable. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3chdODYkdQk[/media]
Hm, I just noticed this thread. well ok I'm at Camp Facepunch and will probably hop back on once the sun comes up in game.
[QUOTE=Patjo_sweden;35872801]This mod is so damn immersive, feels like I haven't been this thrilled by playing a game since I was a kid.[/QUOTE] Same. I haven't felt the same amount of adrenaline when PvPing since I played Ultima Online, many many years ago. Obviously there's a heavy focus on survival since you'll loose your gear (which you did in UO aswell) when you die. Makes you think twice if you have good gear.

What is it exactly that causes you to lose your backpack and all your gear? I fought off a ton of zombies with some other guy, we got split up and I got attacked a bit, and after running to a lighthouse for safty I noticed I didn't have any gear except my pistol and 2 bandages? And how do you refill your water bottle?
Head down to deep enough water and you'll get a "refill water" option. And if you swam during the running, that may be the cause.
The intensity comes from the thought of loosing everything.
Do you think they'll release it as a scenario for coop? I'd really like to just play around with it with a couple of mates.
So i installed it yesterday and i had a little first playthrough: I started in some village near the coast and heard a lot of zombies (it was night). Before i knew it i was spotted by someone named happycow. I thought he was going to kill me but instead we cleared the village together. Then i followed the traintracks untill they stopped and i kept walking in the same direction into the mountains. After that i stopped because i think i completely left the area. [editline]9th May 2012[/editline] Nice game, though. I really need to find a map this time.
Being a bandit (or trying to be) is interesting, the whole server gets paranoid over bandits which I find a nice mix into this. I actually got ambushed by a bandit after killing a guy for running around a town with a flare and attracting EVERY fucking zombie in a mile radius.

They will look like smoking wrecks. It was supposed to be an Easter egg. Unfortunately, I forgot about my anti-hacking scripts. As such, do NOT get inside the crashed helicopters. You will be instantly killed and/or turned into a wild boar (perminantly) and/or ejected into the sky at 100m/s (or any number of other fun ways I deal with hackers in the scripts). So, until the next patch, please ONLY get inside the UH1H (green) helicopters. Do NOT get in the grey ones! Please pass this onto others in game.[/quote] [editline]9th May 2012[/editline] boar sounds like fun

[QUOTE=Cuel;35885928]no [editline]9th May 2012[/editline] [editline]9th May 2012[/editline] boar sounds like fun[/QUOTE] Mind posting a copy of your stellar map? (Really need to bookmark this kind of stuff) I'm currently haunting EU1 for the foreseeable future, would be nice to have an EU FP camp.

[QUOTE=Cuel;35886591][url]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/14106901/build.png[/url][/QUOTE] Here's another map that I've been using. [url]http://avidblur.com/arma2/[/url]
I'm going to buy OA just for this, is DayZ populated?
very. 20 000 unique players and over 200 000 characters
Just a quick confirmation. Global chat acts as a local chat right? I''m pretty confused about that.
[QUOTE=Carnage2323;35882398]Sadly right now map markers are shared globally[/QUOTE] I think it works like the way channels do.
global is global. just like command (only to group leaders but every survivor is in their own group) and side/group channel. direct and vehicle is local [editline]9th May 2012[/editline] if that's what you meant

Find helicopter, fill it up, get shot and the guy just crashes it because he knows fuck all how to fly it.
[QUOTE=_Chewgum;35887498]Find helicopter, fill it up, get shot and the guy just crashes it because he knows fuck all how to fly it.[/QUOTE] Happens every time, 2 of us found a chopper minus a tail rotor everything else shiny. Leave it for 30 seconds, a full group of guys appear pile in and crash the thing into the sea. Also, RFP on the EU pull a logoffski every time they take fire - ones to watch out for.
