    Also, after a re-install ArmA 2 now freezes every 4-8 seconds for a period of 2-10 seconds. Even on the menu's it will just freeze every so often.

    Anyone know what's wrong with re-installing a game that causes it to do this?

    Why is it when using 1.6.0.1 I can get through wait for host instantly but takes a while with the stuff after, like Receiving Data and Mission File, however with 1.7 Wait for Host takes a literal 10 minutes to get past, whereas Receiving Data and Mission File, as well as loading, are instant.
    Shit servers?

    Because 1.7 fixes the Recieving data and such, but the 1.7 is still in a limited release, so the 1.7 version is unstable causing servers to crash/lag

    How would I test to see if it's my Hard-Drive failing me?

    Alright, so far I can't move because every 2 seconds a massive freeze of about 4 seconds in length happens, it's taken me 10 minutes to move from a hill down to the Elektro powerplant firestation because of these freezes stopping me in my tracks.

    Got a server up if anyone would like to join it. It's only been up for less then 24 hours so there are plenty of vehicles to find. There is also a 200 ping limit so faggots don't bounce around when you try to shot them. Plus the server restarts every 6 hours or so. (I think)

    I feel like I'm losing a bit of interest because the game isn't getting updated. I know Rocket has been away because of E3, but I sure hope he's coming back with as many updates as he used to.

    What server was that? Sounds like you found the same tents me and my partner found. Same town, same military camp and all.

    The things were absolutely loaded when we found them. Three or four different AK's that we took. One of the tents even had forty-five other tents in it. That part really helped us establish our own little hiding place.
    Actually I do remember chatting with you between the side chat, just wasn't sure if you were the Facepunch 'hamberglar' because your H was capital in-game

    See the thing is I have head bob all the way down. Playing is first person in DayZ is just stomach turning, hell I get more FPS in 3rd person than in first person, not to mention the motion blur.

    I think there may be a guy in the church in Elektro connecting and disconnecting, I went in, checked it nothing, saw a corpse in the corner and checked it. Soon after a guy connected inside the church and shot me, he was a horrible shot even with his rifle. I got 3 mags of makarov ammo in and around him before he managed to kill me with it.

    Is there a "Turn off robot mode" option in there too? It's much easier to move around in third person

    Unfortunately my admin powers are very limited and I have no access to logs so I can't really do much right now. :(

    I agree, even with head-bob down the first person feels sickening to me and I'm glad I switched from a strict setting server to a regular server so that some features that I enjoy were available to me.

    So what's this about people getting teleported into the ocean / out of the map when they wear something other than the default player skin?

    I've been running around in my camo skin for the last few days, both in 1.6.0.1 and in 1.7, and I've never had this happen to me.

    If anyone is on Nerdy's server can they announce that darkrei9n cannot speak in side chat. I almost got shot at because I couldn't tell someone I was friendly.

    No, 20 meters or 40 meters for direct chat BTW. So have fun. I almost got shot because I can't tell people that I'm friendly unless I'm closer than 40 meters.
