Aparently I made the last post, so I thought I should make a new thread to discuss stuff.

Guys, Chernarus needs help paying for the awesome server that he has provided, as such can some people throw some grass his way?
What the heck is DayZ?: DayZ is a Arma 2 Combined Operations (Requiring Arma 2 and Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead) Which takes place in a fictional place called Chernarus, infested with zombies. Your main goal is to scavange for basic food, find a gun, and not get killed by zombies. You can either go Solo, or hop in our Mumble and team up with a bunch of people.
():: How to install this mod ::()
Beta patches = http://www.arma2.com/beta-patch.php (download latest)
[h2]Latin Geek's quick and handy and raw text based guide to installing DayZ like a pro without Six or any other bullshit[/h2]
-Download Arma 2 and Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead on Steam (you brought trouble upon yourself by buying it retail, suck it up)
-Run Arma 2 as administrator
-Run Arma 2 OA as administrator
-Download the latest DayZ files from any of the mirrors. You need all of the ZIP files.
-Download the latest Beta Patch (it's the larger link on the top bar you shit'ead)
-Install the beta by extracting the .EXE installer and running it
-Go to /Steam/Steamapps/Common/Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead
-Make an "@DayZ" folder, and make an "addons" folder inside that one.
-Extract all the files from the DayZ .ZIP files into that "addons" folder. Make sure the raw files are in the addons folder, and they're not inside their own folders.
-Go back to /Steam/Steamapps/Common/Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead
-Rename the ArmA2OA.EXE to something else, like ArmA2OA_old.EXE
-Grab the ArmA2OA.EXE from the /expansion/beta/ folder, and drop it where the other Arma2OA.EXE file was.
-Exit windows explorer, go to your steam library
-Right-click Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead, go to properties, edit launch options.
-Add "-beta=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion -mod=@DayZ" to your launch options, without the quotes and before any other commands.
You're done, doubleclick Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead and select Launch as Combined Operations or right click it and select Launch as Combined Operations, and you'll be running A2 CO with DayZ.

-Re-check everything starting with the changes to your Arma 2 folders

-Fuck it runs like shit
-That's Arma 2 for you
