    good to know.
    i'll keep it on a slightly lower setting than "house fire"
    For me, on anything other than DayZ I can run it on high with 3000 visibility to make sure I don't get any FPS drops, but for some reason on DayZ I have to run it all on normal with post processing off in order to get a decent frame rate. I have absolutely no idea why but DayZ just seems to kill my frame rate. I have a GTX 460 with a quad core CPU running at 2.66GHz so I don't exactly have a marvellous computer.

    Is it only me who seems to get FPS drops in DayZ? I only get a constant 60FPS when looking out to the ocean or I'm in a huge forest with nothing around, just tree after tree.

    I'm also getting out of college at about 5PM, which is around 2 hours from now ISH, and it'll take me about 30 minutes to walk home. If anyone who plays on the FR2 server wants to come on and group up with me, I'd be happy to help and share supplies! Although lately I've been turning into a bit of a bandit, so you'll have to let me know when you're coming to group up. I just can't trust people any more and it's only like my 4th day playing.

    some guy named QuaZ is supermad at "me" because i ordered my two mates to kill him at the airfield.

    storytime

    we were at the airfield for about an hour scavenging stuff, we were always on the alert for bandits and all but the only bandit we found was a dead one

    so we circle around to the other side of the hangars, opposite direction and i see a guy named QuaZ crawling by them with my binoculars. i head up closer and ask him if hes friendly and he says he is. i go prone to say that we're cool too but he fires a shot over my head so i give the order to my Lee Enfield using friend to shoot him and so he does while attracting like 20 zombies which we kill without too much trouble

    now QuaZ thinks its me who shot him and i didnt i only ordered my mates to shoot in self-defense so 3 players arrive 30 minutes later also looking for loot, we leave them alone and they leave us alone and as soon as we enter a nearby forest to log out QuaZ says to "watch out for X and his mates..they have an unfriendly approach"

    also more stanag ammo spawn plz

    I think we have the same PC, but my framerate actually gets better on DayZ

    Taking the M4a1 over the M1014 was a bad idea.

    Ha, what are the odds. We also need to play DayZ together some time properly, like in a group with Jamie!

    Will try it tomorrow after work once I reinstall everything. Too annoyed now and spent too many hours on it this weekend.
    TheHypnotoad is on the money. I was having the exact same problem as you and got DayZ working late last night after I found a great tutorial. Make sure you do as TheHypnotoad says:

    "Uninstall ARMA2 (Leave OA on steam)
    Remove six updater (Permanently)
    Re-install ARMA 2, patch and boot up once.
    Boot OA once.
    Boot combined ops once (from the steam right click menu)
    (This will link the two correctly, with the correct signed keys being in both folders, this is what you will be missing)"

    Then follow this tutorial EXACTLY: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ib73cBf_-Ys

    Good Luck.

    Anyone use Arma 2 launcher for running dayz?

    If so, does anyone know why the program does not see @dayz in my Arma 2 OA folder...?

    All of the mod files are extracted, all it sees is 'expansion'

    It's all done apart from getting this launcher to see the mod.

    There was very little PvP the first couple of days I played, now it's just a slaughter.

    Quite upsetting, really.

    Yesterday my group of 3 randomly met Rocket, the developer.. he wasnt trusting us until we cleared up the situation.

    The best thing? He had NVGs an suppressed gun, amazing stuff on him and we grouped for about an hour sneaking around the airfield! He shot one survivor that simply stared at us and not reacting towards our "stand still, dont move" first he did that and just started running into the woods... Rocket killed him by small bursts, he was sad after that. Sad sad lonely survivor got killed by the dev. Atleast the dev haves human feelings unlike many other people.

    Thank you Rocket for giving me an GPS.
    Hah Rocket posted about this event and how it disturbed him when he killed that running survivor with us:

    http://dayzmod.com/forum/showthread....d=4477#pid4477

    The part about when he was with us in a group:
    I killed my first player last night. To be honest I didn't really have a reason. I was escorting some newbies to the Southern Airfield, this guy didn't respond to us and started running away. I fired some warning shots as he run away. For some reason, curiosity maybe, or maybe just because I could. I carried on firing and killed him. The event disturbed me so much, I was still thinking about it the next day. I can't recall an event in a video game ever affecting me so much.

    edit:
    I am not wondering why he left 10 minutes after that event.

    Big thanks to Profan, I am not touching any server but profan ones. After the restarts FPS also is super smooth and I like that my latency is 14ms on EU servers. (Germany here)

    No crosshair and no 3d view is the best thing ever on this mod.

    Edited:

    Are squad pics seeable on your dude on dayz? So people see that facepunch pic on my shoulder? I joined the FP squad.

    A summary of my first day in DayZ...

    I spend half an hour trying to get into the servers. There are a ton of them, so I'm surprised how popular the mod has become. I manage to get into EU 1 or 2 and spawn on a nice little beach near a big industrial town. The place is called 'Factory' according to the game.

    I skulk around for half an hour or so, don't find anything apart from tin cans and whisky bottles. Then I crash. On the next server I manage to get into, it's sunset. Uh oh. I wander around some more and spot a flare in the distance, so I head there. I arrive at the train station, bathed in red light, and find a Winchester. Nifty.

    I continue to roam the streets, finding odd tidbits of food or scrap metal. I pass a grocery store, inside I find another Winchester and some glowsticks. I haven't seen any zombies thus far, apart from a few corpses on the road.

    I emerge from the shop and see red light in the distance again. I cautiously edge towards it, saying "Friendly! I'm coming round...don't shoot." Then I get shot in the face.

    Later on I hook up with some guys and trek down a highway for a while. We shot a cow. It was delicious.

    Edit:

    Really gotta find a group though. Life in this game is hard when you go solo.
    Just find a buddy or two, maybe three. Larger groups than that are no good.

    Edited:

    I think DayZ deserves its own thread, its so much different from the vanilla game.

    Edited:

    Why is the ghost page bug on facepunch still not fixed by the way?
