Arma2/Arma2 OA/DayZ Mod connection troubleshooting based on info from VinylJunkie of Europa
First, some quick things to try. 

**1. Are you getting a "Session Lost" error?**
>> __Are you using DayZLauncher__?  
If so, The vanilla-based dayzmod servers require you to goto Settings and make sure to check the box "Launch DayZMod as Steam App". You also must have downloaded dayzmod via STEAM at least once.
Make sure DayZLauncher is version or higher. Click "Update Launcher" if not. 

>> __Are you launching from STEAM__? 
If so, then you must use the Arma 2: DayZ Mod link (NOT the Arma 2 OA link)

>> __Did you run STEAM as Administrator__ ?
Right-click on STEAM and choose Run as Administrator.

**2. Did you verify your local Arma2, Arma2OA and DayZMod 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

**3. 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. Today this will render a "You were kicked off the game" error. 
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.

**4. Delete any locally cached mission files from here: **
C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\ArmA 2\MPMissionsCache

OK, if those things don't help, then its time to get serious

**1. Remove and re-download Arma 2 and Arma 2 OA from STEAM. I also suggest a reboot afterward.**
STEAM LIBRARY->Arma2->Uninstall
STEAM LIBRARY->Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead->Uninstall

STEAM LIBRARY->Arma2->Install Game
STEAM LIBRARY->Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead->Install Game

**2. Start Arma 2 and Arma 2 OA once time each to the lobby then exit.**
This is neccesary to make sure both games initialize properly and write correctly to the registry. To make them load faster, add these launchparameters: -noSplash -skipIntro

**3. Remove and re-download DayZ Mod.**
STEAM LIBRARY->Arma 2 DayZ Mod->Local Files tab->Uninstall
STEAM LIBRARY->Arma 2 DayZ Mod->Local Files tab->Install Game

**4. Launch Arma 2: DayZ Mod instead of Arma 2 OA in Steam.**
Once Arma have started press Multiplayer and you should see all vanilla DayZ Mod servers.

      I was watching some of my old videos the other night and I came to think about all the amazing people I have meet in the world of Chernarus, and tons of  amazing friendships along the way. This has to be one of the greatest friendships ive had in DayZ. The fact that we could have never known each other, just by the blink of an bullet. This was the night we met Prin, which happen to end up becoming one of our bestfriends. From this night and every night for a year and half we played in this mad world that we call DAYZ. Every night we had a huge crew, always ranging in numbers. (mister, xboxdwayne, lawdog, pstar, and many others. We call ourselfs the Zambie Crew.  We roleplayed, Pvp, reordered skits, held up tons of people up at gunpoint, and had many fights at the nwaf. I just love Dayz. There is no other game that you can get such a interaction where it becomes a factor of literately not knowing if they could become one of your bestfriends. This game shows what a split decision can effect, and not just a way of a game decision, the decision you make in the game actually becomes a part of your real life. If we would have shot her,  thats a real life friendship that never was. The heartbeating factor you get when you are in Chernarus is insane. And the amazing thing is i know im not the only person to experience this, many dayz players have met friends that to this day still game with, all from meeting them in the world of Chernaus. To that I say cheers, And i Cant wait for many more friendships to come! 
      The Zambie Crew and I were heading north to Novo to celebrate the purge weekend. On the way we ran into two survivors. We captured both of them. One was a female by the name of ZambiePrincess, the other was a deaf male who spoke no words. He died, she lived. Fast forward to present time the crew and princess are still surviving, picking its way around the wastelands of Chernaurs.
      This is the story of how we met Princess.
      8:18 ending montage *for those that dont know, princess (PRIN) became a big part of the ZambieCrew Family 
       **SPOILER ALERT** also goes to show how crazy KOS can be, you never know who you are going to meet in dayz. Video is from June 2015 @Baty Alquawen
