    What is your most overhyped game(s) this gen?

    Diablo 3 for me, sweated on it coming out for years and was very dissappointed when I was finally able to log in..

    L85 Should it stay or go

    I vote to remove it please.
  3. Ahhhhh I forgot to add and assumed you were having problems with newer versions of Dayz, if this is your very first time installing it then make sure that you run ARMA2 by itself once and arma2 operation arrowhead by itself once. This needs to be done to ensure that your key is registered and all registry entries are updated. Otherwise you will get bad key messages etc.
  4. Close :) 1) Yes, except I dont install the Operation Arrowhead BETA 2) Yes 3) Dont forget to install the latest beta patch. Basically, under install/update install the top 3 and make sure they say (up to date). Dont worry about additional mods at this stage. 4) Yes 5) Make sure you are connecting to a server that says under the version and also make sure the server's ping is under 100. <100.
  5. Hi Stabin, my previous response will explain how to handle the replacement of the arma2oa.exe (check the box and let dayzcommander do it for you). You can update the beta patch the same way as you update dayz, click the update button beside it in dayzcommander. Follow the prompts when you do. Every time there is a patch update etc for dayz.. I have to do it on 5 computers...

    Should I get Win8?

    Hi, one of my computers here has Windows 8 recently installed on it. The first thing I did do was test Dayz :) and it works no problem. The GUI is really different to previous versions of Windows and looks more like an iPad, it even had an apps store that you can download on. I could go on and on but the only thing I would recommend and that is having 2 x monitors with Windows 8 ... In summation, Dayz works fine in Windows 8.
  7. Stabin, Dayzcommander does it all, check under SETTINGS (up top beside install/update). Make sure you check the following checkboxes - Launch using Steam (if you use Steam) Replace original ARMA2OA files with Beta so Steam Works. Thats really it, its quite simple.
  8. Hi Stabin, as people have said above, simply download DayzCommander and click install. I however do not believe your problem is with the Dayz installation but rather the servers you are trying to connect to. Once you have installed DAYZ, use dayzommander to filter out non-same versions etc that you have installed, this will ensure that you are trying to connect to a server with the right version. Importantly make sure you are trying to connect to a low ping server, this means a server that is located close to you, you are looking for a ping time of < 100 to ensure you wont get kicked every few minutes. Give this a whirl.

    Build Rolling Update

    Is there a hotfix coming soon for the Script Restriction #45?, I too have a hero skin and unfortunately cannot login either. When I read earlier in this thread that other people were having this problem I was hoping it would be fixed by the time I got home but I have just tried logging in and keep getting kicked out :(.

    Strange Hack ?

    oh great, cant log back into server now, getting this error message - You were kicked off the game. (BattlEye: Admin Ban (DayZ Anti-Hax 09.11.2012 17:38 (MP Event Handler Exception))) Can someone please explain what this is ?, I am assuming its a local ban and not a global ban, anyone else getting this?

    Strange Hack ?

    Thought I would try out a private hive, attempt to avoid hackers... so far I havent been too successful.. Last night, running through the woods North of Cherno I spotted behind me 'Jason', equipped with a ice hockey mask and an axe.. I managed to avoid him for 30 secs until he teleported onto me.. But the weirdest thing that happened to me was just then, both of these hacks occurred on AUSARMA ANZ#1, private hive, anyway, I was sitting behind a closed door, two bandits knew I was in the area and had just killed my friend, when all of a sudden my screen flickered, FOLLOW popped up on left hand side of screen and then my character took on a life of his own, he opened the door and then proceeded to simply run towards where one of the hackers was, I quickly tried to CTRL-ALT-ESC so not sure if I was quick enough or not but has anyone encountered hackers doing this yet?

    Battleye privacy invasion

    Personally I think this only affects hackers or those that want to get up to no good. If you have nothing to hide then you have nothing to fear. If it means fighting the good war against hackers then I dont care what they do as long as they catch them, its still out of hand.

    Those little worthless islands off the coast...

    Hackers love to teleport people to those islands... Also, there is a chopper spawn on one of them as well.

    Server "Removing" my gear and spawning me on Coast

    Its the Dayz Version, if I take my character to a earlier version of Dayz, say a server (either deliberately or by mistake) then I end up on the beach. Stay on servers and you will be fine.

    Bringing back the skins was the best decision they have made in a long time, hope to see it stay. I now have the choice of choosing to help someone wearing a hero skin (Yes, this can backfire at times but generally not) and I simply shoot on sight anyone wearing a bandit skin without remorse. Over 70% of our communication when dealing with other people is via body language, in a game like this you dont have this option, the skins go a long way of forewarning or giving you an indication of the type of person you have in your crosshairs. Otherwise the game goes back to a mindless slaughter again... *shudder*
