Can i run DayZ on a Windows 8 PC?

10 posts in this topic

So i recently been looking forward to downloading DAYZ and i already know how to download it by looking at guides on youtube. All i need to do is buy Arma II: Combined operations and download both of them, then download the DAYZ MOD. Now then, Before i pay my $25 to get the game, i need to know if it works for Windows 8. if not then i'll just need to wait till DAYZ SA is released and pray that it does work for Windows 8. If you have any idea if it does work for Windows 8 please post them. A simple Yes or No will do. No need to make any harmful or bad replies

                                                                                                                                               

 

                                                                                                                                               :beans:  :beans:  :beans:

It'll run fine on Win8... I don't know why everyone doubts windows 8... IMO it's a badass OS. Fuck the start button, that shit got in the way anyway.

 

I play it on Win8 :P

 

WINDOWS8 FAN CLUB FTW!

I am running the home (not professional) version of Windows 8 and DayZ works just fine for me. Although I would recommend just getting DayZcommander (http://www.dayzcommander.com/) instead of trying to download everything separately. I got Arma II and all that installed through Steam, but then had DayZcommander do the rest. For some reason the Arma II: OA installed from Steam wasn't the right one so DayZcommander installed what I needed.

      Hi guys & girls, 
       
      My public server, METANIX.net | #1 Friendly Survival is not working for me. I can see from the admin console players are connecting constantly after the update however for me, I get a message stating "bad version, rejected connection". Why is it other people can log in but not me?

      So I have been getting really bad freezes almost half a year now. I have been trying to monitor my temperatures of my components but they seem quite normal. Freezes last long and makes Dayz unplayable in anywhere but forests and plain fields. I have 60-140 fps all the time but those freeze spikes just come out of nowhere. My computer is 4 ½ years old now and I'm thinking that there is some problem in my hard drive.. I hope we can fix this problem and I'm here to inform you about everything you ask me. I wouldn't really want to invest in new parts but if it's the only option I will have to do it.

      My specs (Asus CM6870-US-3AD prebuilt):

      -Processor: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4GHz (64bit Quad-Core)
      -Memory: 16GB DDR3 1600
      -Storage: 540GB and 372GB HDD
      -PSU (changed): SilentiumPC Vero L1 650W (80Plus)
      -GPU (changed): MSI GTX 960 GAMING 2G
      -Motherboard: ASUS H77
