  1. ah, I see. In the mod we can restrict player names on creation to just ascii, so I haven't seen that.
  2. i'm still running a dayzmod server, but I'm curious what the exploit would be since the person using it, basically has admin privs to chat/kick/ban/etc. What else does Dart have access to?
  3. DayZMod 1.8.9

    Good catch - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145
  4. Weather

    and you are posting this in the DayZMod suggestions forum
  5. Recent secret update?

    you're saying the loot is similar and thats an issue? There are loot tables with certain items spawning at certain types of locations (military, residential, crash, farm, etc). Even military locations have a set list. The barracks and crashes have always been weighted toward eastern weapons, not nato. not sure what other server you are testing, but ask the owner.
  6. Recent secret update?

    No secret update for sure. I run a server and am on the dev discord. DayZMod updated to 1.8.9 a month ago, so there's that. Zombie Max is controlled by the server. 1.8.9 added a few items to barracks (NVG, M249, something else), but didn't change the rest Weapons spawns are chance based, so sometimes you get lucky too. Some of the things you are asking about could be changed by the server owner, some are part of the code core. Suggest you ask Term on the UK420 discord.
  7. Screwed

    At least some of the trains were removed due to glitches. As far as screws, the rarity was by design to make bases harder to build/maintain and reduce the mega, multi-ringed, impossible to penetrate bases. The start of maintenance was changed from 7 days to 14 days. 23 boxes in 4 days doesn't sound that bad. What is "bandit level farming"? and not sure how you mean the "spawns rotated 2 time per refresh"? There are many other places to visit, loot respawns every 10 or 15 minutes and loot spawn is a double-random (chance that anything will spawn and chance that specific items will spawn).
  8. Dayz INS server/shogun un just ban

    exactly what @GaryWalnutssaid. Admins can only issue server bans. Why don't you post a screenshot of your ban/kick and lets see..... You also didn't offer ANY information about what got you banned, just some vague accusations.
  9. How is this supposed to be fun?

    Apart from all of that, server admins can make it day or night and can set full-moon = true so I'd talk to whoever runs the server you are playing on.
  10. DayZMod 1.8.9

    Whats up? I've downloaded and installed 189 as have many other servers.
  11. DayZ Mod Troubleshooting

    **__Arma2/Arma2 Operation Arrowhead/DayZ Mod VANILLA-BASED server connection troubleshooting based on info from VinylJunkie of Europa__** (non-vanilla based servers such as epoch have requirements and different connection methods) **INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS** For a NEW install, do the following: **1) ALWAYS run STEAM as ADMINISTRATOR** >> If you don't, You may get a "Session Lost" error. **2) Download and install Arma 2 and Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead from STEAM** **3) Start Arma 2 and Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead once time each to the lobby then exit** >> This is neccesary to make sure both games initialize properly and to setup BattlEye >> To make them load faster, add these launchparameters: -noSplash -skipIntro **5) Download and install DayZ Mod from STEAM** >>This is necessary because STEAM will ultimately run DayZ Mod and so it needs to have downloaded it to know the location. >>Even if you will ultimately use DayZLauncher, you MUST download DayZ Mod via STEAM at least once. **4) Launch using the Arma 2: DayZ Mod link in STEAM** >> Do not use the Arma 2 OA link for VANILLA-BASED servers (you would use this for others, such as epoch) >> You will see the server browser and you can filter on various categories. You may need to wait a few seconds, maybe change the ping limit and refresh again.**4a >> Alternatively, you can use DayZLauncher @ dzlauncher.eu. You need version or higher (click "Update Launcher" if needed). Go into settings and make sure to check the box "Launch DayZMod as Steam App". ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// **BASIC TROUBLESHOOTING** **1) Did you run STEAM as ADMINISTRATOR?** **2) Do you have Arma2, Arma2 Operation Arrowhead and DayZ Mod?** >> Check STEAM->LIBRARY. If not, Arma2 and Arma2 Operation Arrowhead are usually on sale for a few dollars. DayZ Mod is FREE! >> Optionally, you can install Arma2: Private Military Company and Arma2: Britsh Armed Forces to get some better looking textures. **3) Do you have the right versions of Arma2, Arma2 Operation Arrowhead and DayZ Mod?** >> Check STEAM->LIBRARY. Right lick on each one, select PROPERTIES, then the BETAS tab. They should all say "None - Opt out of all beta programs". >> The ONLY exception to this rule might be when DayZ Mod releases a new version and you need to select an old one TEMPORARILY until a server updates. **4) Did you launch Arma2 and Arma2 Operation Arrowhead at least once to the game lobby?** **5) Did you launch using the using the Arma2: DayZ Mod link?** ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// **ERRORS MESSAGES and OTHER ISSUES** **1) Are you getting the message "Session Lost"?** >> Did you run STEAM as ADMINISTRATOR? >> Are you using DayZLauncher? Make sure to check the box "Launch DayZMod as Steam App". **2) Are you getting the message "You were kicked off the game"?** >> Do you have an AddOns folder in your Arma 2 OA folder? >> If so, remove it. Back in the day players were told to copy their Arma 2 Addons in to the Arma 2 OA folder. >> Your Arma 2 OA folder is probably located here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead >> There is suppose to be an Addons folder in the Expansion folder, don't delete that. >> If you don't have an AddOns folder located in your Arma 2 OA folder, don't worry about it. **3) Is your game hanging during load, possibly at "waiting for host" or "reading mission"?** **3a) Are you getting an error message about missing files?** >> Verify your local Arma2, Arma2OA and DayZ Mod files within STEAM >> STEAM LIBRARY->Arma2->Local Files tab->Verify Integrity of Game Files >> STEAM LIBRARY->Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead->Local Files tab->Verify Integrity of Game Files >> STEAM LIBRARY->Arma 2 DayZ Mod->Local Files tab->Verify Integrity of Game Files **4) Are you getting kicked immediately after joining?** >> Make sure you have the correct version of DayZ Mod installed. >> Make sure you do not have other mods loaded. Having other mods loaded may results in a BattlEye kick. >> If you are using STEAM, uncheck mods like epoch, overpoch, etc OR use dayzlauncher OR create a simple .BAT file **5) Is your game still not working?** >> Delete any locally cached mission files - C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\ArmA 2\MPMissionsCache\*.pbo Those are all typical errors and resolutions, but arma2 is finicky. Follow the suggestions listed above and then reboot the PC. ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// **REINSTALLATION** Finally, if none of those things help, then your should reinstall Arma 2 and Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead **1) Remove and re-download Arma 2 and Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead from STEAM.** >> Make sure the files are deleted **2) Remove and re-download DayZ Mod** **3) Follow the INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS I also post this at helpthedeadwalk.wordpress.com and discord.me/tdr
  12. AND YOU REPLIED TO A 3 YEAR OLD POST in the wrong forum. This is DayZ Mod > Mod Servers & Private Hives
  13. Name This Mod

    No, but I know there will be a vanilla namalsk server coming up soon.
  14. UK420 and The Dead Return have teamed up on a server based on Taviana! If you've never played it, see http://dayzdb.com/map/taviana for more info (vehicle spawns follow this map). If you have played it, then you'll know that its arguably the best non-Chernarus map out there. The server is based on vanilla, but with a few added features. We have a few regulars, but we need more players. Now that 1.8.9 is released, there will be loot in many more buildings. Tavi is a large map, very fun and if all your used to is Chernarus , you'll have plenty to learn. UK420 The Dead Return 1.8.9 Taviana Vanilla+ has some mods: * Walking+Running Zombies - Sometimes they run just to keep you on your toes * DZMS - Highly Customized with 20+ AI Missions * DZGM - Group System * Extra Heli Crashes, Infected Camps and Care Packages -> You will need to download Taviana using DayZ Launcher here - https://dz.launcher.eu/download -> Visit the discord at https://discord.me/tavi for full information on how to join the server. * Active admins. * Max Players: 30 * Max Vehicles: 125 (It's a BIG map) * Physical Server Location: FR * Restarts: Every 3 hours * Battleye: Enabled * IP Address: Any questions?
