Ah crap, I crashed. Sorry Qasaur whoever you are
Have you run arma 2 before?
Yes, I fired up Arma 2 to make sure it wrote a directory.
I see all the game icons on the game menu, BAF, OA and Arma 2.
I also see @dayz in the top right under Arma 2
Yesterday my group of 3 randomly met Rocket, the developer.. he wasnt trusting us until we cleared up the situation.
The best thing? He had NVGs an suppressed gun, amazing stuff on him and we grouped for about an hour sneaking around the airfield! He shot one survivor that simply stared at us and not reacting towards our "stand still, dont move" first he did that and just started running into the woods... Rocket killed him by small bursts, he was sad after that. Sad sad lonely survivor got killed by the dev. Atleast the dev haves human feelings unlike many other people.
Thank you Rocket for giving me an GPS.
Already got Arma 2 installed into the OA directory. Yes, there's a Chernarus.pbo in my Arma 2 addons.
Will try this sixupdater, getting fed up now.
Might wanna try running ArmA 2 seperate first so it generates its shizzle, then run OA and see if the mod is working.
Actually, in the batch file you could enter the manual path for arma 2 instead of the one that relies on registry keys couldn't you?
What the fuck, I was sneaking through the woods towards a town and suddenly I hear a loud "HUGHUEHUEHEUHHUEHUEHGGHUGHGHGHGEHGGEHGEGGUGUH GUH" behind me and there is this random bandit just screaming at me.
Next he just fired 5 shots of his AK into the air and logged off, I got swarmed.
This mod man,
DayZ mod is like Battlelog, but worse.
So many problems they got just becasue they need to send data to their "leaderboards & stats".
Dumbs comes from those who are to scared to reply
This mod is not compatible with the selected game edition...whaaat.
Am I using sixupdater wrong or something GOD THIS MOD IS FUCKING HASSLE
Sixupdater also seems to think I'm running Operation Arrowhead standalone, WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
This mod is too popular. All of the servers I've joined lately have been overwhelmed by the number of connections.
There is. www.dayzmod.com , its right there haha.
And sorry Kilgore, but I've got no idea whats wrong then. :(
Are you sure ArmA 2 is in the OA dir?
Like that. ArmA 2 isn't in a folder inside the OA dir, it's actually in the OA dir.
Theres not much special done or causing any issues in relation to leaderboard stuff, It's just getting stuff from the central database which saves peoples characters.
Where is the 1.5.2 already. Running through towns to find only tin cans because the loot is broken in 1.5.1 is getting old.
A summary of my first day in DayZ...
I spend half an hour trying to get into the servers. There are a ton of them, so I'm surprised how popular the mod has become. I manage to get into EU 1 or 2 and spawn on a nice little beach near a big industrial town. The place is called 'Factory' according to the game.
I skulk around for half an hour or so, don't find anything apart from tin cans and whisky bottles. Then I crash. On the next server I manage to get into, it's sunset. Uh oh. I wander around some more and spot a flare in the distance, so I head there. I arrive at the train station, bathed in red light, and find a Winchester. Nifty.
I continue to roam the streets, finding odd tidbits of food or scrap metal. I pass a grocery store, inside I find another Winchester and some glowsticks. I haven't seen any zombies thus far, apart from a few corpses on the road.
I emerge from the shop and see red light in the distance again. I cautiously edge towards it, saying "Friendly! I'm coming round...don't shoot." Then I get shot in the face.
Later on I hook up with some guys and trek down a highway for a while. We shot a cow. It was delicious.
Really gotta find a group though. Life in this game is hard when you go solo.
Since you can play with one character, which is persistent across all servers, servers which are in different parts of the worlds, yes?
So that must mean you can remotely access it, and did you just say the same twice?
Alright you corrected it, local "nodes" for the backend is planned I believe, where they send the data to the central server in intervals.
I think the entire server is going to be bandits soon. Since yesterday total murders have increased by almost 2000.
Hmm nope, says I have a load of .pbo files that are not signed by a key accepted by the server.
So basically everything in the addons file is now apparantly cheat files or something so the server won't accept them ....*sigh*
Do you have any other mods installed?
Right, fuck it - deleted everything, the game all uninstalled, fuck it all - too pissed off to bother with it now
Thanks to you guys who tried to help, I was also trying to get help from the official forums of the mod but recieved jack shit.
I give up.
I fucking hate PKers. Was at devils castle with my bud just chilling. He had to go away for a bit and then some random guy comes up and shoots me in my back. No fucking reason at all.
Uninstall ARMA2 (Leave OA on steam)
Remove six updater (Permanently)
Re-install ARMA 2, patch and boot up once.
Boot OA once.
Boot combined ops once (from the steam right click menu)
(This will link the two correctly, with the correct signed keys being in both folders, this is what you will be missing)
Get a DECENT launcher (Not alpine stars, try this: http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=8241)
Boot up the launcher and point it to the two EXE locations.
Create the @days folder (in either location, I use OA just because) inside that another folder called addons and in there all the PBO's and keys.
With the launcher booted, create a group add @dayz and tick the group and addon.
Launch in the bottom right with ARMA2 - CO.
DayZ needs more servers they're all full.
Dear lord! I'm in Elektro in the smallest French server and it has bodies everywhere.
Now I hear someone screaming, yeah I'm not getting a good vibe from this place.
I found DMR and became a bandit. A while later around 10 people were hunting for me and I got shot.
