    Ran into a dude with nothing but a flashlight. Scared the shit out of me til I realized he was telling the truth about being unarmed. I think the body nearby made him suspicious of me, but I don't kill flashlight wielders. I offered to help him get to the fire station nearby but he said it was empty. He found a makarov soon after and we went our separate ways. It's nice that more survivor encounters aren't a quick death to someone you didn't see.

    The spawns are hilarious though. I found a pile of 6 hatchets after killing a guy nearby with 3.

    It's pretty amusing how people in this thread always say how they were "startled" by someone before killing them "accidentally"

    I was startled to realize that some guy was prone in the dark in front of me after turning on my ghetto NVGs. The result was no accident though.

    Holy fucking shit, server just crashed twice from like 500 people spamming join on it.

    Its up now, had to lock it for 15 mins to avoid to wave joins.


    We should have a server where only thread dwellers can join. That way we actually talk to everybody we play with.

    I don't think Rocket supports that idea, exclusive servers + persistent world = a lot of potential for cheating.

    Don't they already have password protection though?

    True, but why punish people who don't cheat?

    I'd like a facepunch only server. Even if it was facepunchers killing other facepunchers. I'd prefer to get killed by someone I've at least talk to.

    It's also not like banning locked servers will keep players from farming loot. If you have a group of 10 people stacking loot at the Stary mil tents, it doesn't matter if the server is locked or not. Nobody is going to be able to do anything about it.

    That's what I thought the FP server was. But then i found out that it wasn't password protected.

    We should have a password on a FP server that gets handed out in this thread whenever it changes, and people should only share it with a couple of friends that they play with. That way we keep the server local and friendly.

    Yeah I have another video, we managed to sneak through the zombies and ran away in a warehouse. Then the guy disconnected. But we were perfectly safe. Still without ammo.

    That momen was intense, the night really dark and when I saw the flashlight I was really scared. But that guy was friendly.

    Damn I really wish they would brighten the nights up just a bit; enough to at least see the ground. Once night time hits, I can't play anymore. Every server I've joined is night time right now, I've given up.

    Edited:

    Could it not be that your server just got mauled by people looking to join a server with the same version?

    That's a relief. Great moments in video games are like these, when you make it through by a hair, and with one mistake, everything would be over.

    Are servers allowed scripts that check the people? Cause if so could a whitelist of FPers work?

    Yeah, pretty buggy hotfix.

    When you pick up a weapon, it'll drop around 6 hatchets and a crowbar in its place.
    Shit's fucked.

    No offense to rocket, but this is why you don't put new shit in a HOTFIX.

    It's not even that really.

    It doesn't seem tested AT ALL, like I don't think he ran it before uploading.
    The weapon bug is the first thing I encountered, a minute in and it doesn't appear to be random either.

    Well that's cool
    I no longer have a hatchet, because the game decided to throw 6 of them onto the floor along with 2 crowbars while i was trying to switch between my rifles

    They're not actual crowbars and hatchets though, magazine bags called "hatchet" and "crowbar", which I can't pick back up




    Edited:

    game has also decided to transform the revolver i picked up into a makarov
    great

    Edited:

    Trying to pick up anything if you don't have room in your inventory now seems to automatically pull out your binoculars if you have them
    every time i spawn, i immediately pull out binocs

    Also, how much space does the crowbar take?

    I'm fucking annoyed about side channel and all removed. Way too quiet on chat. Melee seems interesting, considering the fact that Arma 2's engine goes crazy about melee. Once I get my gaming PC up and running again (it be broke), maybe the game will be playable.

    Also holy shit the dayz thread on /vg/, is a massive shitstorm (/vg/ is usually a pretty chill place) about side channel, coding etc.
