Day Z Mod

200 posts in this topic

Just thought I would share this find: http://dayzmod.com

Not trying to take anything away from NMRIH, as its one of if not the best zombie games I've played, but this Day Z is tons of fun too, and I figured some of you who have ARMA2 might enjoy it.

Basicly its an open world zombie survival game. You search houses, barns, stores, gast stations etc. for items and things to help you survive. You can hunt, gut, cook, and eat animals that roam the lands. You can collect the bolts from a cross bow after you shoot it. (Just like Daryl) You can team up with players, or kill players to take their gear, so every encounter leaves you on edge wondering if this new found 'friend' will stab you in the back. When you die, you start over with the generic load out, but if you survive, your character saves and is cross-server saved so you pick up right where you left off. You can also sneak by zombies, and the whole thing is about stealth. Theres a new realistic healing/medic system and tons of other features. At this very second, the game has run into a problem and most people can't join because they get stuck at a loading screen, but I'm confident it will be fixed by tomorrow at the rate they've been pumping out patches. I would check it out if I were you!

Trailer:

And heres a funny video of the guys at Shack Tactical playing it:

Did any of the devs speak out the title of their zombie mod aloud and think for a second? "Daisy. Hm. Maybe not the best title for a zombie mod.".

Looks cool though, although I prefer slow zombies. I'll definitely check it out.

Looks fun, but the ARMA 2 engine starts ripping at the seams during normal gameplay.

What I hate about these Zombie mods is that the Zombies are always stock ARMA 2 civillians with all their equipment removed (with a bit of blood on them/a reskin) that run after players. I've yet to see an ARMA 2 mod that does the whole Zombie thing well, which is basically due to engine limitations. The only thing its got going for it is vehicles/wide open spaces/ballistics.

The AI/animation/movement systems still leave a lot to be desired.

Have you tried this sounds fakeish I mean no offense but no installer and there is about 10 different files you have to download (and then manually install).

I thought the same thing when I first saw it, because I had never played ARMA2 Mods before, but don't worry its real... I've been playing it all day!

Thats what I used to think, but apparently its DayZ, so it should sound like "Days". I suppose like the days going by? Maybe they got the idea from The Walking Dead first book, Days Gone Bye.

I agree with you, on all the other zombie mods, but this one is different, I promise. I've tried almost every ARMA2 zombie mod there is, and this one takes the cake. The zombies stumble around and look just like classic slow zombies, and then when they see you they sprint after you. This is the best thing the devs could have done for ARMA2 cause if they were all slow, they would be almost no threat at all in the ARMA2 engine. Yes, they are reskinned civilians, with blood on them, but why not? They still look like zombies, and the reskinning is pretty good, giving them gray skin. The animations are still not perfect, and there being worked on still, but its more about the atmosphere this game gives off. They even crowd around a killed survivor and eat them when they die. Today I actually did an Otis situation and shot a guy I was running with so I could get away.. I agree though, I wish they looked like the NMRIH zombies, only way it could get better =P

When I first checked the video, I was "meh".. but when I saw this zombie start his ultra-fast running, accelerating to top speed in 0.0001 seconds, it was the last thing I want to see. Sure it's early, but that stuff doesn't convince me at all. Shooting looked like it doesn't work at all, especially sniper rifle. The whole thing just didn't impress me at all.

I started playing, kinda hard to understand, but im working on it.

I have a feeling it would be more fun with friends, so if you are playing add me on steam. Malek91 my avatar is the same

Serious lone survivor feeling is cool though, i was literally out in the middle of nowhere when I spawned. And I really like the whole scavenging thing and looking for food. Pretty awesome.

I agree the zombies are way too fast. But it adds to the whole "stay down and dont attract attention" feel.

I just really like the whole internal fight you have when you see someone else playing "Do I jump up and call them over, or are they going to shoot me" haha pretty awesome.

Do I put the files in the /addons folder that already exists, or do I actually have to create a /@dayz folder with another /addons in it? And do I do this in the Arma 2 folder or the Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead folder?

This game is too hard.

Radcon and I just watched the entire five part Shacktac video series of this mod last night. We were also talking about getting a Sunday Funday event up and running some weekend.

It's cool, but fuckin ArmA nights man. They're so retardedly dark that you can see nothing. Absolutely nothing except the very edges of silhouettes where they meet the sky. Everything between is fucking invisible. So walking around in the night, you HAVE to use flares because (at least for me) the "working" flashlights don't fuckin work. And you check out a house, wondering what's in there. You get some stuff. The retardedly limited inventory space makes you puke a little bit, then you walk outside - OH FUCK TWELVE TOURETTE'S ZOMBIES RUNNING BETTER WATCH OUT ARMA'S AIMING SYSTEM SUCKS ASS FOR URBAN ENVIRONMENTS.

Basically, ArmA2 makes me angry sometimes.

ArmA's a great game but I just wish it didn't have those really snappy animations; it'd be interesting if this'll be ported to ArmA 3

Zombies are also attracted to camp fires I learned. So you are shit out of luck there as well.

I put the damn files everywhere and I still can't join a server.

you don't put them everywhere you put them somewhere...if logic and nature like that worked, just think of the implications it would have on semen.

I don't need another fucking semen lecture from you, Dad. All I know is that it didn't work in the "right" place, so I put it in every place. There's no way you can't fucking find it.

Same thing with the files. Doesn't help that the game launcher is all "Does you wanta launch Arma 2 or Arma 2 Operation Penetration or Arma 2 Combined Operations" - it's the same fucking game. Just launch something from somewhere.

did you try to download a mod launcher for arma2? http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=410

1. Download a mod launcher ( http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=410 )

2. Go to you arma 2 root folder ( C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2 ) <--- that's mine

3. Create a folder for all the mods (If the mod say @ACE, @CBA then just put the @ACE, @CBA folder straight into the root folder, if it has no Addons folder inside the @example folder then create one and put the .BiSign and the .pbo in there

4. Use the mod launcher to run the mods

(try searching install mods on the armaholic forms and install arma addons on youtube)

Your welcome, CoDhAtEr

i don't know shit about arma either but i am aware of this massive fucking database of information at my fingertips for such odd thoughts as how do i install a mod into arma 2...hmm if only there was a bar i could type that shit into and a fuckin genie would answer that thought....mmm the possibilities. you're over here jamming your cock into any and every hole and you didn't even realize there's a hole right there, she's waiting, just anticipating, the thing that you'll never nver possess...no no no, but while she there waiting, try just a little bit of tenderness, that's all you got to do, now it might be a little bit sentimental...no, but she has her greavs and care, but the soft words they are spoke so gentle...yeah yeah yeah, and it makes it easier to bear, oh...she won't regret it...no no...them young girls don't forget it, love is their whole happiness...yeah yeah yeah, but it's all so easy...try a lil tenderness.

Are you using Steam for Arma2 CO?

If so, do a "verify game cache" and that will clear up most of the join server problems. If you are getting a .pbo file hassle about undead and undead_misc.pbo then go to both arma2 folders with "addons" or "add-ons" and delete or cut and paste those suckers out of there.

I had a problem with the whole "assign key for server" bullshit for a while.

and make sure you set your launch options to say this > "-nosplash -mod=@DayZ" or add that same thing into your desktop shortcut if NOT on steam.

I'll try that, Matt. Thanks.

There's four score of dick in my mouth.

Yes, my mistake for following the directions on the mod page which consisted of: 1) Put this shit here and 2) Done-zo!
