    Found a dead bandit by a crashed Huey.

    Sucks ass that you die if you enter them, thankfully I was preinformed of the danger.

    I checked out the "military camp" in Berezino.


    It's literally just a bunch of Military props by the hospital with jack shit in them, there is one tent and a sandbag fort that may spawn things but there wasn't anything there when I went through.

    Anywhere, big towns like Stary Sobor are your best bet despite the danger of humans and zombies.

    Every time I get the urge to play DayZ I start up ArmA 2 and wait 5 fucking minutes for it to get to the main menu, then I mash the enter button for 2-15 minutes to get in.

    And when I finally get in, I don't even feel like playing anymore.

    Are the zombies in this mod actually dangerous? I almost never hear about them in this thread, I only hear about other players ending your life.

    They don't do much unless there are lots of them.

    If you have bandages they are no issue at all.

    We should have some private dayz server for facepunchers. There would be so much friendliness :D
    Sort of ruins the fun unless we split into factions.

    You can get overrun fairly quick if you open fire in the middle of cherno, you wont survive if you're alone with your makarov

    As long as you don't disturb too many of them they aren't so bad, it's why bandits are sort of needed so there's a little more mayhem

    Firing off a Lee Enfield or a sniper rifle in a big town typically means you'll be dead soon though, elektro and cherno are pretty bad areas to even fire a pistol if you aren't careful about it (unless the zombie count is like 200)

    It could actually be fun to split up in different groups and fight eachother. Some could be scavengers trying to make a living while others could be bandits and so on.

    The airstrip hangers are pretty good for weapons (check all the corners in the hangers), big cities also have a lot of weapons in stores and random houses

    Yeah I'm sure if everyone was just being friendly then someone will eventually get bored and just go on a rampage

    My current mentality is to just shoot people I'm not directly playing with.

    It leads to some hilarious scenarios.

    People get mad at me over chat though, I just tell them "Fuck you im insane"

    They're definitely dangerous in great numbers. They pose more as a nuisance though; especially when looting in towns or cities. As you said though, other players are the bigger concern.

    Is this worth buying ARMAII for? All I ever hear about is how great the game is anyway, and this seems the exact type of thing I'd want to play, but I'm not sure if my 2xGTX460s and outdated X2 Black can handle it. Just as many times as I hear ARMAII is great, I hear it's poorly optimized and tough to play.

    I don't think SLI works properly with this game. I have GTX 460 as well and I get 30-60 fps with these settings + SMAA config on ultra (with i7 950 stock)



    This game needs good CPU though so I'm not sure how your can handle it. I suppose you can look up benchmarks or something OR better yet, download ARMA 2 Free and test it out yourself.

    If the bandit was inside the gunner seat and it was near Mogilevka then that was probably me.

    Odd, with a gtx460 at 1920x1080, 8GB RAM and an i5 2500k I can practically max the game out at ~25fps

    OH GOD, I went in a little town but had no sound, weird bug, or maybe a feature, well I didn't heard a zombie, I killed him and then I attracted a ton of zombie, I went from 10 kills to 42 in 1 min.

    I died of course, I was surrounded by them in a house, that was so intense.

    And then I walk into a house and get shot by someone hiding behind the door.

    WELCOME TO ELEKTRO, MAY I RUIN YOUR DAY?

    shit no wonder people adopt the shoot first and ask questions later contingency plan, though that's half pvpers fault and half the game's fault for having cumbersome in game communication.

    Well, I could probably max it out too, but this game is so unpredictable. Although I do get almost 100% GPU usage in towns or with lots of objects around, especially when zooming in.

    I'm sure I wouldn't get much boost if I drop settings to low either, except 3D res maybe.

    Some settings I put on low deliberately, like Terrain detail, since that removes clientside little grass bushes, they just put unnecessary load on GPU, look ugly, and it just generally helps having them turned off when you're prone. (This is noticeable on Takistan map)

    The worst are servers where names are hidden.

    We threw some flares down on the roof of one of the buildings in elektro and a few minutes later a player ran towards us. I asked if he was friendly, and he said no. I asked again, he said no again, so i shot him in the head with my revolver as he crossed the road. Then he asked why we shot him and I realized it was someone else saying no.

    This mod alone, if you added more buildings to enter, more items and refine the whole thing a bit it'd be worth money as a standalone game. I've already clocked 15 hours in it and I only got the game two days ago (Only had a chance to play twice)
    That's why I really hope it gets ported to ArmA 3. Every single building in A3 is supposed to be enterable.

    Found a guy that knew where two tents were in Chicago 1.
    We got there and bam, I got hit unconscious. When I got back, I was bleeding with 4000 blood. He asked "Inacio where did that come from" but when I tried to bandage myself I got hit.

    The guys had made a trap. And it worked.
    Two tents East cherno outskirts, top of a hill by the power station.

    Had some great loot btw.

    Okay, so I woke up and I had 12000 blood. Suddenly my character falls over again, but this time no timer is displayed.

    Goddamnit!

    I am not starving or dying of thirst either, what causes this?

    Rejoined, fell over unconcious again, this time with a timer again. 3 more minutes I guess!

    Was in the ATC tower north-east of krasnostav thinking which I should take, AKM or AK-74. Suddenly, someone fired a loud weapon twice, both missed me.

    Biggest adrenaline rush I've had in a long time. My hands are now shaking.
