    Car Tire Repair?

    as far as i remember: the usual procedure for repairing tires (on PC is/was). use the tire iron (in hands) with the wheel (aim at it) on the car in order to detach it. take the repair kit in the hands, and aim at the wheel (on the ground) and interact to fix it. take the wheel into the hands and look at the place you want it, and attach it. you don't need a tire iron for this (you probably just tighten the screws/nuts by hand)

    Suppressor sounds

    they went to a shooting range and recorded those sounds IRL. since you wont have the loud sounds realistically loud for obvious reasons, gun sounds lack some dynamics (normal loud sounds are barely quieter than loud and super loud sounds), especially when you are close. BUT the sounds are authentic. anyhow. opposed as hollywood teaches us, suppressors don't make guns inaudible at ranges above a few meters.

    Connecting Failed - SUPPORT

    for some time stable and experimental branches were running the same version. since the experimental branch got an update, steam installed that update. as i said, your server is probably running the stable version. so if you want to be able to reliably play on it, you will have to keep the stable branch selected. not being able to connect to a server running a different version is to be expected and no bug. there are no ways (well, maybe hacks) to connect to a server running a different version. if you have troubles with the controls, that's a different issue. i can only guess here, but you should try removing your "DayZ" folder from your windows Documents folder. (usually found at C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents) Maybe make a backup first,so in case it doesn't work, you other settings aren't lost. if that doesn't work, you should make a ticket in the feedback tracker. i think you missed the first link i provided.

    https://feedback.bistudio.com/ I'm not sure if you got some things fundamentally wrong. So let me clear this up. Stable branch and experimental branch are running different versions (most of the time). (Stable 1.0.150192; Experimental 1.0150408) So when you switch between them, steam has to download and install a whole bunch of different files. SOMETIMES this is only a few MB, but often it's a couple of hundred MB or even some GB. This usually depends on how many and what things were changed/added. The DayZ server application is used to host a dedicated server. This has nothing to do with your client application. You can run a stable branch server, and play on an experimental branch server ( But if you host a stable branch server (not sure if you can host an experimental branch server on your own machine) you will have to connect with a stable branch client. Both versions need to match. check code does only matter if you enter a code to unlock a different branch. some branches for games (like dayz experimental) are unlocked by default for all game owners, but others need to be unlocked by entering a certain code (like dayz stresstest (currently not relevant)). i have no idea why you have no controls, so i can't help you with that problem. but it seems to me, that your original problem was, that you tried to connect to you server with a client running a different version. to be honest, i think it should be common sense, that this should not work. Sure, the game should give you a different error, but on the other hand, you should have noticed this by yourself.

    How can I edit the time of the night?

    you will have to change how fast time passes (x6 for 24h gametime in 4h real time) and the time of the year. since the length of the days are linked to the time of the year you will have to change it, in order to get to the ratio you want. i don't know what would match your scenario, but i think mid of June might work.

    VAC Ban

    took me 30 sec to find it.

    Why did BI Remove Faces from the Billboards?

    very likely to be legally safe. just like they did with the item renaming. but there is still a chance for the faces and item names to come back after they have ensured they have the rights to use those in the game.

    Forced to get fully geared up?

    sure, most people would get the best protection they can. but for a matter of fact, the press vest looks/is different from the military plate carrier. so there probably is a difference. i think that i have once read, that ballistic vests are classified as "defensive weapons" in germany, meaning there are restrictions on who is allowed to buy, and on the export. i don't really know about other states, but i can't imagine that they would allow military grade vests to get into the hands of terrorists, insurgents or normal criminals. press representatives will surely get a permission more easily, but i think for the game, we could say, that the civilian ballistic vest (aka press vest) is a normal civilian ballistic vest, and therefor shouldn't offer as much protection as the plate carrier. i can't tell anything about it, i can't remember being shot at with any of both. but there might be more factors than just bleeding protection (eg. how fast it get ruined, health damage, effects of different projectiles/speeds) i guess i should do some tests sometime to find out how it is in the game.

    Forced to get fully geared up?

    no idea, that's just how i think it should be and probably is. the normal ballistic vest is civilian, while the the plate carrier is a military vest. irl, i would expect the military vest to be able to stop direct fire from rifles, while the press vest is more for ricochets and fragmentation but i have never tested it (both, ingame and irl :) ).

    Forced to get fully geared up?

    in theory there are 2 attachments for the plate carrier, a pistol holder and pouches. but i haven't seen them in the current versions, even if that doesn't have to mean they don't spawn, i think the are not in the game right now. as i mentioned: "i'm not talking about [..] the military one". but yes you are right, i just didn't remember how it was called, as you want alternatives for military gear, i guess the ballistic vest might be something for you then. protection shouldn't be as good as with the plate carrier, but you got some inventory space. that's probably true. i guess the problem is, that there are so many possible spawn locations spread all over the map, while the military ones are concentrated in a few clusters. i hope the get the right balancing soon. because i think it should be as easy to find an MP in a police station, as it should be to find a military rifle in barracks.

    idk about how it is in the xbox version, but are you sure the ballistic vest has no slots? i'm not talking about the anti-stab vest (or the military one), but the one that has "Press" written on it. in the PC version it has i think about 20 or 25 slots. next thing that i think should be the same in xbox version: MP5s are police type loot, so you should be able to find it in police stations, at police car wrecks, the small green guardhouses and the guard offices (3 doors, main, office and bathroom, idk how i should explain it better, i have no image at hands right now). those buildings can be found easily in urban, industrial and military areas all over the map. and yes, it's hard to find boxed 9mm ammo, but i come across loose ammo on a regular basis. the UMP (as an alternative for the MP5) seems to be military loot (if im not mistaken), and it feels to me, that you find M4s and AKs more often than the UMP.

    Official Server crash? or?

    if the server was in the official tab in the sever list it should be an official server.

    Are BI closing for the Christmas holidays?

    No. Devs are satanists and celebrate the birth of the antichrist at June 24. joke aside, you should be able to play without a wipe for a while. i don't think Xbox version is getting another update this year, and even if it got, it would probably only get a wipe if problems occur (like with the last update).

    [404] 3 DayZ Links Are Down

    they are probably doing some changes to the website, as the 1.0 release is imminent. if you "need" them, you can still find them in the forums:

    Experimental Update 0.63.149887

    i had a similar bug today. i fought a few infected with a shovel and was hit so that i was bleeding. i tried to bandage myself, but the action was cancelled right after i started. i tried to drink, what wasn't working either. i tried to make a garden plot with the shovel, and that worked (up to the point that i cancelled it). i came to the conclusion that my character (probably hand hand slot was desynced) was bugged, so i relogged. afterwards i could bandage myself, but my shovel was gone (didn't notice it, so i didn't search for it, but it was probably dropped somewhere). damn, i look slim in this patrol jacket. had invisible patrol pants in the last version, now it's the jacket.
