There was no PvP, everyone always tried to link up with one another and bro it up against some Zs. I even remember fortifying apartment blocks in Chernogorsk and settings up tents and campfires on the roof. Truly the golden days.
Now it's just a messy clusterfuck with PvP and awful server upkeep (for the most part). Probably because several major communities have taken interest in it like FP, ShackTactical, BI forums, /v/, SA and some other minor clans. I guess this is the price we have to pay, the more people are aware of the mod the more it's going to be unpredictable and chaotic.
I shouldn't be complaining though, DayZ is definitely deserving of all the attention it's receiving and I cant wait to play the actual full version once it's released of course. Until then, I shall watch LPs and follow updates.
The days? Man that was barely 3 weeks ago, stop acting like it was the "golden age".
I think that's freaking wonderful. Makes it seem like those tv and book scenarios. You got groups fighting each other, people soloing, looters and so on. I love it.
It's quite awesome to find the bodies of people close to each other. Then you know some shit went down. Or a player body among zombies.
Still can't get this fucking mod to work.
Followed instructions exactly yet it still tells me that the cunting .pbo files are not signed by a key accepted by the server.
This is a really fucking retarded way to have a game's file system that you have to fucking mess around with things this way.
You have a faulty Cd-key.
what PBO files aren't signed?
Are you sure that the files aren't corrupted or something? Or you might have a faulty CD key or something. Might be the FADE system fucking your files up.
I was in a little village in the middle of nowhere and I find a body of some guy who had like 2 shotguns with him. I couldn't identify him but it was just weird. He was all alone in the town just dead in a doorway. Turns out the town had so many zombies because I got jumped soon after by around 15 zombies. Barely managed to get out of it alive
I've done exactly as instructed.
I uninstalled and reinstalled everything. Fired up Arma 2 first, then fired up OA. Then I ran combined ops.
Then I put @dayz in the main dir and it tells me that the .pbo files are fucked.
I even tried reinstalling Arma 2 AGAIN to a seperate dir and doing it that way but no, same damn message.
I have my file layout as @dayz/addons bla bla and i tried addons and @dayz as seperate directories but neither way makes a difference.
Using Arma 2 launcher as suggested and it sees @dayz in the file dir and lets me run it as combined ops but I just get fucked with this message when trying to join a server :@
How do you even use the packs?
Where are the FPers? What server and where abouts?
You need someone else to do a blood transfusion.
And that sucks kilgore. :(
You could try downloading a .iso of ArmA2, perhaps your DVD is corrupted.
Bah, too much effort - it probably won't work anyway
You need a bud to use the bloodpack on you.
I'm on EU2 Over-Run.
Are any servers working?
Second day was slightly better in terms of lifespan. Only died three times.
I have a compass and a crapton of food and water though, so things are looking good for now.
Arma 2 dir:
Seems to not matter if these dayz files are in the addons folder either or sat where they are now in the above picture.
This is how i installed them seperatly as I thought maybe that was the issue but it makes no difference like this or having Arma 2 installed inside OA.
Also having @dayz seperate from addons makes no difference either.
Put the dayZ folder into the operation arrowhead directory.
Create a folder named "@dayz" in OA folder. Create a folder called "addons" in "@dayz". Extract all the files to the "addons" folder. Run combined ops with launch parameter "-mods=@dayz;".
Swebonny you little ninja you...
This is like the 10th combo of moving folders around to try and get it to work.
I'm trying to test this but servers being constantly full is making it hard
The guy that made the dayz mod is a dev, so he should talk to his buddies and get this on sale.
They get more money we get the game cheaper, Everyones happy!
not like this will happen anytime soon :(
Probably gonna get the game tomorrow, althought the prospect of pvp isn't something i'm waiting.
"%_STEAMPATH%\steam.exe" -applaunch 33930 "-mod=%_ARMA2PATH%;EXPANSION;ca"
change this to
"%_STEAMPATH%\steam.exe" -applaunch 33930 "-mod=%_ARMA2PATH%;EXPANSION;ca;@DayZ"
Change it back a batch file and run it.
If I try to fire up via steam in combined ops it moans about signed keys not accepted by the server with all the .pbo files
This is basically where i've been stuck all weekend. Either fucked .pbo files or missing chernarus.
This might seem really obvious, but have you checked that the retail arma 2 is completely up-to-date?
And if it is, can you take a screenshot of your vanilla Arma 2\Addons\ folder?
It should have all those files (air.pbo, chernarus.pbo etc).
