For some reason I'm still alive. The guy shot me, I fell down, and I was greeted with the "YOU ARE DEAD" screen, but I just reconnected and found myself unconscious, with all my stuff intact. I lost 5k blood, but that's it.
I wish they'd get rid of Bandit Skins already.
Pretty much every interaction in DayZ:
Also, I had to kill two assholes in self-defense, and that got me the Bandit skin. Now everybody sees me and thinks "oh hey, he killed other players, better kill him!". That isn't fun
On a semi-related note, I bought the PMC add-on.
Hurray for more detailed survivors!
I feel like I'm the only one who plays the Arma campaigns.
I'm also getting tired of all those newbies who don't even know the basic controlls of the game.
If I hear "haw do I open my inventory???????" one more time...
Atleast play the basic tutorial, it takes 10 minutes max, and helps a shit ton
I was doing fine, cooking some meat, when out of nowhere a survivor comes up and shoots me in the face.
In the chat I see "oops"
I don't like all the people coming into this thread asking the same exact question page after page.
If you just read the thread they'd get their answer.
"What is server response?"
"Why isn't X server working"
"Can I use free ArmA?"
"Why are all servers full!?"
Where me and you enjoy the fun of looting, exploring, and encountering survivors; others may just find enjoyment in gunning each other down. It sucks because DayZ isn't meant to be played like that.
Played with a guy named WhiteWolfTengu, We met in a village and went north-east from the coast. It's so much fun playing with someone.
Havent been in a group for the last .. 20 hours or something among that. Been wandering with my ak kobra and m24 through all citys in the map. I need a bro to play this together with him :(
So after playing Arma Free I've noticed a very large amount of servers kick for high ping, if I buy this will I have a really hard time finding any servers to play on? I live in Australia.
So I downloaded arma 2 free and got OA paid, using the installer to install the mods, start in combined ops, join dayz server and it says that I have don't have "chernarus"
Anyone know what this is?
Wait, so can I just"
A) get Arma Free and then buy Operation Arrowhead, or
B) can I just get Operation Arrowhead?
Funny for A, Zing for B
This is just so much more fun when you're playing with others. Over the last two days I've been playing with some guy I met in the game, using TeamSpeak in order to communicate. We went to Nowy Sobor last night and today we went to Stary Sobor and went back to Chernogorsk in order to pick up one of his friends.
This game is horrible, I've finally after about 2 hours of playing found a rifle. But now I'm scared to wonder around because I might lose it :(
Just connected, was at requesting character date, then saw in the chat that someone killed me... Why?
Found a survivor holed up in a warehouse surrounded by zeds while looking to for my friend. I told him I was friendly but he was obviously keeping a cautious eye on me and I him. I guess he was part of a group because a couple of other guys followed minutes after. We just sort of camped out in there for a while while zeds warped through the walls and we decided to just book it up and over a hill. We explored a power plant and as we climbed a tower, I warped through the wall and fell several feet and passed out. Then after I recovered we got to some barn and I accidentally jumped off some stairs and died from a devastating 5 foot fall.
Respawned and finally met up with my friend in Cherno and we both died from climbing ladders on separate occasions. They need to remove gravity from this game I swear, besides my first death from zeds I have ONLY died from inexplicably falling.
For the past 3 hours I've tried to find the place I died at (some tower), so I stopped at a hill and looked around and said to myself "I'll never find it."
Turn around 180 degrees and there it is in the horizon.
In all actuality, you probably spawned either in front of or behind another player, and when they saw you, boom.
Thats why I only DC when I'm either in a hard to get to location in a city, or laying prone in the woods or zombie-free countryside. chances of getting killed there upon spawn are almost zero.
Can't connect to any server, always stuck at "waiting for server response"
I spent most of yesterday being an asshole sniper at Stary Sobor.
Anyone know why I'm getting kicked when joining servers?
All but one server either kick me or give me the key validating error..
There should be a facepunch server. With password, so only facepunchers can join.
We could group up to a huge group or 2/3/etc. groups rivaling/helping.
This would be cool.
First day playing and as I'm sneaking through town a random bus drives through honking. I chase them and ask them to let me on. They do!
Then I lost connection :(
Why does everyone think that the creator of the mod has anything todo with fixing ladders or the netcode. This stuff is hardcoded in Arma2 itself. One way to fix the ladders issue would be to create totally new ladder objects and buildings, and then either recreate chernarus or a totally new map.
Better fix this stuff with Arma2 updates.
I hate how terrifying the zombies sound. I get fucking nervous with them around me.
I'm too nice in this game.
Once, when I was alone and I found a car, I wanted to get it but it needed a tire, I went to a different location to get the tire, and when I returned, some other survivor was trying to fix the car.
I wanted that car, I shot him dead. I felt pretty shit for the next hour because I killed a dude for myself.
For the guy who use ArmA II Free, do this :
Install Arma II Free, copy all the files from the 'Addons' directory and paste them in the 'Common' directory of OA(replace the files if asked). Then just install the mod and add -mod=@DayZ.
The game will be in low res because it's the free version of Chernarus.
