    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.

    Bandit skins aren't the problem. Right now with the influx of Arma newbies they feel that the entire point of the game is to player hunt, which it's not. You've got more and more players remaining on the coast, and they feel the need to kill everyone on sight.

    IMO Bandit skins kind ruin the immersion. You shouldn't be able to tell that someone is a murderer, that would make encounters with other players a lot tenser, because you'd have to decide if you trust someone or not every time, instead of the game just telling you that he's a Bandit.

    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!

    Me too. Not worth the money if you ask me. But at least I played ArmA before Dayz so I'll use it later even if I get Dayz'd out.

    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 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!?"

    I still feel that even without bandit skins you'll still be raped and robbed by even the most smallest encounters. There's just too many people who find the enjoyment in gunning down their fellow survivors more fun than getting immersed into the environment and making each character have interesting and unique experiences.

    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.

    My pings are pretty awful all the time. Sometimes being 500+ and I get into games without being kicked fine. Ping doesn't really matter too much in this mod either.

    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.

    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.

    thats something that pisses me off too. It puts your character in the world before it actually shows you what the fuck is happening.

    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.

    Edited:

    There is one sedan spawn point at the grocery store in zengonsk or whatever the town's name is that begins with a Z.

    he really needs to fix the shittyness of ladders. its like they put you BARELY on the edge of the ledge of whatever the ladder leads to, and you really need to have quick reflexes to move forward because you start sliding backwards once you reach the top.

    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.

    You're actually not allowed to put passwords on DayZ servers. My group is about to purchase one, and one of their devs, whom we chat with on occasion, informed us of this.

    Make it FP only so that we can all work together and actually be productive. It'd be fun to create rivals and factions to war against one another.

    Just make it so people with an [FP] tag and maybe their FP name on their character are automatically seen as friendly until proven otherwise.

    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'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.
