  • The spotlight does not work after a server restart
  • Infected will be a bit more bullet resistant during this Experimental.

Notes

  • We've done some changes to the VoN Codec, so when moving your current Server Config to the new patch, be sure to change your vonCodecQuality = 20
  • Consider using the Steam client option to verify the integrity of the local game cache to avoid corrupted data after downloading this update.
  • In case of problems, please check the Bohemia Interactive support F.A.Q.DayZ F.A.Q., or BattlEye F.A.Q.

Is the SK 59/66 the SKS? If so, fixed persistence, SKS and a bunch of other good stuff, I like what I'm reading. This might get me back in the game for a longer period, thanks.

This is a massive massive update, thank you so much!! The logs and backups stuff is a godsend.

Can you talk further in detail about the ^ quote? I'm very curious to learn more.

Thank you again.

That's a long list of moved map objects that are nowhere documented, bigger changes are noted.

seems like good patch.
just tested few things..
killed sheep with my fists and skinned it with stone knife.
i ate whole sheep...no health problems beside over eating.
also managed "loot farm" with two houses...plenty of clothes keep spawning in...but noticed that food in pockets was reduced..i guess.

is there any plan to check loot farming problem and eating raw meat problem?
and those sheeps just were stupid...why they not runned away?...and maybe adult rams should really attack player if player starts to hit them

They said that more dangerous diseases are coming. So I guess the impact of eating raw meat with that as well. I hope it will be soon! Want to cook my meat again before I can eat it

I appreciate the fact the Devs seem to be doing something. That's awesome.

 

But! (there's always a but) performance is still an issue mainly around vehicles and general performance.

Vehicles: From the perspective and friends and mine alone, the movement and controls for vehicles are sluggish and awkward. And there are times where you will lock up for 5+ seconds and end up crashed on the side of the road, and for a game like this, vehicles are a must.

Performance: FPS issues even with people with 1080ti's and 17-8700k's. Barely able to reach 60 even on the lowest settings coupled with constant crashed. And now that modding is at an all time high, people are sometimes not even able to launch the game with some mods active.

 

Are any of these 2 issues going to be touched at all in the future? Myself included, I think we'd all like to be able to reach 60 fps and control vehicles in a less awkward and sluggish manner.

Bloody feet! (can we wash them too? lol)

Nice to have some fix for this finally. Maybe implementing faster stamina drain too with bleeding or add some shock damage, just painful, kind of like it used to be?

Played for some time on a 1pp server. The game was running good and I found a CR-527 (but no ammo/mag):

Played an hour or so at 1st person "high/full" server. No problems. Game was running good. Didn't see any other players but AKM took zeds down with one shot (as it should) and with M4A1 sometimes more then one shot.

What does this mean in English, do I have to roll back to stable to play LAN or is this going to come in a timely fashion?

Shortly seems to mean something way different to you guys.
