Day Z Mod

200 posts in this topic

I've been playing for days now, and I'm hooked. Nothing like finding a crossbow, some bolts, matches, and hunting knife and living off the wild, occasionally going into town for water and more supplies. While I agree that the sprinting zombies aren't the best thing in the world, its the best they could do with the ArmaII engine. If they were all slow, they would be almost no threat unless they made huge hordes of them, which would make people with even the best machines lag out since ARMAII is one of the most un-optimized games in history. The only things I hope for in future releases are smoother animations, and roaming zombies. Also, on the whole installing problems, you have to create a shortcut for Operation Arrowhead, and then add -mod=@dayz to the end of the path. It's in the directions, I don't know a thing about installing mods on ARMAII but the directions are pretty clear, just don't skip anything. I play in third person view on a triple monitor setup, only on servers with crossairs, and once I got used to it the aiming isn't too awful. For a game in Alpha it had never crashed for me, so... yeah, their doing a pretty good job. :D

ArmA 2 is a crappy game with shitty controls and atrocious performance.

Well someone named SchadenFreud as well as a Cleric person played with me. Cleric is a voice actor on here and I forget exactly what Schaden does [pretty sure he does something]

I like it. My brother would never play this game because of how easy it is to die. Here's a snippet from when we played.

Oh Noobbot was also in there and he got shot by some guy right in front of us while a group of infected were attacking us . Bastard looted him afterwards :V

Forgive me I used WMM because I was too lazy to install Vegas.

It does have shitty controls and horrible, horrible performance. But I like it for some reason.

You fuck.

ROFL your right! They changed the downloads page and didn't add the readme they used to have... well if you add -nosplash -mod=@dayz it should all work fine, just make sure you have the most up-to-date files. I'm sowwy ouji... :( lol

lol I agree 100% with you. I think I spend more time fooling around with the settings than I do playing the game. It's frustrating that my brand new computer built for triple monitor gaming can't play it on max settings because the game is so unoptimized. I hate original ARMAII, but DayZ I'm willing to put up with it for the gameplay. Plus if you add the commands in the shortcut like -cpucount=4 -exThreads=7 etc. than it works a little bit better. Nice video Sydni, glad your playing it, it's pretty fun stuff! :D

I joined for a few minutes didn't see any zombies then I had to leave because I had other plans. I hope to play again probably tomorrow.

Zombies are normally found around towns, cities or barns. I have hopes that they'll implement some sort of roaming system, either in herds or individually, but at the moment they just spawn around areas that have loot.

I'm already having enough trouble avoiding them :V

I was going to betray this guy I travelled with and take his loot [He had a fully-loaded Enfield and a flashlight], but I got too attached and we both ended up meeting our demise in a small town. Like 15 zombies followed us into the woods.

It is pretty fun. Next time I'm rendering in Vegas. I like my HD :V

What does that mean? I like HD too but I don't know what your talking about, and I want to render in Vegas too! lol We should all create a No More Room In Hell - DayZ group on steam or something. People who like to play both, and we can all team up while in the server. We would at least know we aren't PKers.

lol, I betrayed a guy once, only once like that. He could barely speak english and when we grouped up he was just giving me orders in broken english. So when we got done fighting off a group of zombies, and he was bandaging himself, I shot him in the face and took all of his gear... He had a lot of stuff. :P Last night while I was playing, I had my character alive for a few days, and I was sitting at the airfield. Suddenly my guy just rolled over and died. Perhaps I died of natural causes, but I was most likely shot with a crossbow or something.. It was annoying.. lol <_<

Will this run with OA only? I dont have CO, just OA :/

I tried running it with OA only and it said I was missing something. You NEED CO and they use Chernarus for their map.

I use Sony Vegas to render my videos but since I got this laptop recently I was too lazy to reinstall it. I used Windows Movie Maker so I only got shitty 480p and a crappy video :V

If the Staff are okay with it someone could do this. We'd need a logo though.

Hopefully on Saturday because I can pull an all-nighter [sort of, I always head to bed eventually]

That being said I need someone to play with me, I nearly died lol and I found an ALICE pack.

A lot of the community use |NMRiH| as a sort of clan tag. You guys can create any unofficial community groups as you like and I think branching the community out to all sorts of different games is a great idea that should be encouraged!

Wait, so |NMRiH| as a clan tag isn't reserved exclusively for Devs?

So |NMRiH Dev| is then?

I'm in ShackTac, so I must represent them in all my bumbling, retarded glory. I must besmirch the name.

I tried it once, connected to a server but had a black screen and could only read text... and I was a commander so my character was automatically typing "return to formation" in 18 different languages to all the people "under my command" whom were obviously scattered all over Chernarus.

I guess I should give the mod another try soon.

ShackTac sounds rather exciting. I love realism, but did you love getting a bullet to the face?

I haven't had many issues aside from slow connections but I fixed them for the most part by updating my mod. Current version as of this post is 1.5.2 which fixes a bit. I would also suggest updating to the beta patch [92333] for CO so you can play on those two servers that nobody else can .
