    You require both ArmA 2 and ArmA 2 OA to run this?
    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?

    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.

    This mod is so damn immersive, feels like I haven't been this thrilled by playing a game since I was a kid.
    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.

    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.

    Edited:

    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.

    no

    Edited:

    The latest patch introduced crashed helicopters, spawned randomly around the map, that have some uber loot in them. 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.

    boar sounds like fun

    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.

    Just a quick confirmation. Global chat acts as a local chat right? I''m pretty confused about that.

    Sadly right now map markers are shared globally
    I think it works like the way channels do.

    this must have been what killed me last night.

    also using vehicle channel to set markers when nobody else is in a vehicle with you/you aren't in a vehicle is a good way to set private markers

    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.

    Because you didn't drop it you only replaced it. DayZ doesn't drop shit when you pick up new shit for some reason so items will magically vanish.

    Go to your arma directory, create a folder Dayz, in folder Dayz, create folder Addons. Download everything and extract in Addons. When you launch arma, you have to switch on the mod in the expansions option first. That's on the main menu.

    Hope its clear now.

    Ugh. Was scouting out a town from the distance while prone, then a zombie fucking teleported to me or something (it made no noise) and instantly knocked me out and killed me, despite me having 70% blood.
