3. Does anyone have any clue how to fix the "Wrong CD Key" error when trying to install the OA beta? I still get the bad serial number error when trying to launch the non-beta version as well. I never had any of these problems until I had to re-install the game.

4. i decide to go loot the balota airfield, find ghillie suit, M16A2, various supplies and alot of mags

5. Didn't someone say that servers can't be passworded when the topic of facepunch server was discussed? Because I keep encountering dayz servers that are password protected.

Why is there no Facepunch server anyway?

It's because you already own ArmA 2.

11. Brothers, I have an ALICE pack full of STANAGS, AK mags and AKM mags, plus a couple of grenades.

When is our next meet-up, and what's this I hear about vehicles?

12. Get the arma 2 beta patch

Edited:

Just do exactly as it says, I installed it as it told me to and ran it from the shortcut it made and it works with dayz
So you just add the dayz extension to the beta patch EXE and it'll work fine?

13. So you just add the dayz extension to the beta patch EXE and it'll work fine?
You can add pretty much an unlimited amount of extensions.

This is mine for example:

Code:
-beta=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion -nosplash -mod=@dayz /high -cpuCount=4 -exThreads=7 -maxMem=8192

Well that doesn't explain why other people I know, who already own ArmA 2 don't get this discount.

15. I stepped on a steep part of a hill and started sliding down it. Landed, heard a crack, fell down and now I can't walk.

I uh... I also don't have any morphine as it turns out. I don't know how or why, but I don't. Is there a kind soul here who can come help a poor, crippled man in the woods?

I've been good :(
Anyone?

16. Anyone?

Where are you?

17. Where are you?
I'm at Zub. That's right near Vyshnoye. I think I'm on the north side.

If you actually get to the castle, I'd be easy to find.

18. Nowhere near there, sorry.

Oh okay, so it looks like I just swap the EXE's (along with the extensions) and then it'll run it as combined ops?

20. Oh okay, so it looks like I just swap the EXE's (along with the extensions) and then it'll run it as combined ops?
I use this launcher, it's a lot easier than messing around with command lines. You simply select the Arma2 exe, the Arma2 OA exe and then the Arma2 OA beta, along with the addons then click launch.

21. Do you need both ARMA II and OA or do you just need OA? It's not very clear in the OP.

22. Saw a zombie by a barn I was going to loot, and right when I was taking aim at it, someone else shot it. I nope'd out of there

23. I just had an M4 CCO and coyote backpack but spawned near the coast (for whatever reason?) and died because Makarovs make so fucking little noise, and I couldn't figure out where the shooter could be in the middle of a fucking forest with me. Cool. Unbelievably discouraging, it's gonna take lot of fucking energy to get back into DayZ. So congratulations to whomever killed me, you manage to get within 20 meters of me in the middle of a forest in the middle of nowhere, and now have all the gear in the game to get bored over.

Edited:

Rate me dumb if you like, I'm not proud of not being able to figure out where a puny little Makarov was firing from, but fuck is it disappointing.

24. We found a fully fixed, fully fuelled UAZ just waiting for us to get in, it had several high-tier weapons left in it's inventory, including two AKMs, one AKS-Kobra, one M16, one Remington 870 (with flashlight), and much more loot; these are some pictures of our adventure:

28. Got shot at the NW airfield. I saw 1 guy approach the hangar I was in, said friendly, then I saw another guy behind him and panicked, shot at both. But they were lagging all over the place so I heard a single gunshot and died. I was almost dead anyway though, like ~500 blood, so wasn't that annoyed. I probably should've held my fire and backed out, I feel bad for shooting first, but didn't think I could hold a threatening stance against 2 guys if I passed out. I'll miss the ghillie suit, but I'll find another one, I stumbled on a bunch in cherno last time.

30. Um, any reason none of the servers are showing up in my list now?

Great, I validate the files and now I'm getting "Bad serial given at setup". What, what the fuck?

Nevermind it was me being retarded. Fixed it.

31. Wow

So I'm in cherno church, and see a survivor with an AK, So I shoot him down being the nice guy I am. Turns out, he is stacked, With tons of food, drink an anything you could need, maps, hatchets, about 8 clips and and alice pack. So I loot most of the stuff and check if anyone had found me, Turns out, His group of 8 men had found me. So at this point, I'm stuck in a room with 8, Full ghillie, sniper rifled, Armed men.

Well played.

Well played.

I forgot to add that, At this point, many rifle rounds impacted my face

36. So I managed to get rid of the "Bad Serial Number" thing somehow. It just kind of stopped happening. Now I get instantly kicked from servers with no explanation. Since re-installing after changing hard drives and upgrading to a 64 bit OS getting DayZ running has been a nightmare.

Coyote Backpack (24 slot)
MP5SD
Glock 17
Plenty of food and water as well as blood bags.

5 of us on Skype have been playing all day, we were travelling to NW Airfield. 1 disconnects about halfway to go to a party, another disconnects to go to bed after we are at the Airfield and search the first barracks. On our way to the second barracks we check all the other buildings, no luck with any decent loot but I find more mags for my MP5SD and G17. We get spotted by zombies and get to a building and one of us shoots his revolver at them, we get a SHIT LOAD of zombies in this one building. All of us are bleeding and broken bones, but we survive. I have morphine, we all have bandages and blood packs.

My two friends wait in a building as I go to the 2nd barracks to look for morphine, while inside I hear gunshots. I look out a window and some fucker is shooting me with a revolver, I return fire with the MP5SD and duck. I notice bandages respawning, so I check all the other rooms in case morphine spawned before getting shot at again. He hasn't hit me yet, so I return fire again, seeing him by some trees. He shoots me once with a revolver and I go down, 3000 blood and passed out. Before I even get up, I'm dead.

My friends are crawling around trying to avenge me at this time. They spot him a few times, but he's long gone and the server crashes. :(

We join a new server and the two of them crawl to two dead players, find morphine in the second body. They both heal themselves before they spot another player who shoots one of them, the other returns fire and headshots him! They get themselves an M24, M14, tonnes of ammo for both, a lot of cooked meat, one of them upgrades their backpack from Czech to an ALICE.

I may have died, but they profitted like hell.
