Hey guys, need a little help. I've played DayZ in the past and had no issues whatsoever. I wiped my computer a few weeks ago, and just got through installing ArmaII/OA/DayZ two days ago. I'm updated through DayZCommander on Arma/OA and DayZ.
Here's my issue. I launch into a server, load it up, and experience an extremely drastic drop in performance. Game play is extremely choppy to where it's almost unplayable. I think the issue is with DayZ itself because I can play Arma II and OA just fine. I only experience this drop in performance when I'm playing DayZ.
Anyone else experience this issue? If you have, how did you go about fixing it? I've tried searching for fixes, but have so far come up short.
Rough System Specs:
Win7 Pro 64
Intel i7 960
AMD HD 6870
24 GB of DDR3 1600
change servers. Some servers are just over loaded and give shit performance
I'll keep trying. I've been through about six or seven different servers (low pops) with the same result. It's just extremely frustrating when my friends run those same servers no problem.
Did you install the latest ArmA beta update through DayZ Commander? Does changing graphics settings do anything at all?
Yes, I have installed the latest beta update.
I've messed around with various graphics settings with no luck. I always keep the Video RAM to default as well. Vsync and postprocessing are both off as well.
Make sure ports 2302-2307 UDP and TCP are forwarded on your Router if possible. Also make sure that your firewall isn't blocking it. If it's not listed, add it to the allowed list. I take it that all other programs/games are working fine?
Yes, all other programs and games are working fine.
Firewall isn't blocking it. I went ahead and forwarded the ports, but no dice so far.
Try a full reinstall. Uninstall armas, then delete the program folders from steam, then reinstall. Don't forget to run arma 2 and arma 2 OA before you install dayz or any patches
Yeah, I figured I'd probably have to give that a go. It stinks, but it happens.
Well, I feel like a complete derp and figured out the issue. I was getting into servers that were a patch or two behind the current one. Went into an updated server and voila, up and surviving again. Thanks for the help everyone.
I have red river and dragon rising, will this work with them?
EDIT I'm an eejit, it's operation flashpoint I have gonna have to buy Arma II

And just a heads up, here's the message we received from Matt today (sunday):
[11:39 AM CST 6/9/2013] Matt Lightfoot:
You won't be able to do tomorrow as we need ot update Steam at the same time
Yes at the moment, we were alright to go on Friday when it was brought to us but now the people needed to push an update to steam are at E3 and in Prague. So trying to do that is going to be slightly more complex especially with the us being busy from 9.30am till 9pm LA time.
There isn't really much we have to say till I know exactly what we can do about it. Again we were perfectly ready last thursday/friday.
Jan isn't here at the moment I can't make the build public on steam. Only Jan can and I don't know his process for that whether he can do it remote, he has to e-mail valve. I don't know, so I'm going to have to speak to him.
Hopefully Jan will pull through and get our steam release in time...
Welp, that didn't last long...
Back to stuttering again. I believe the problem manifests itself thanks to Battleye. I'll play fine for about 15 seconds, but when the "Battleye up-to-date" message appears on console/chat my ping spikes massively, and I'm unable to play.
I've created an exception for all of Arma/OA/Battleye on my firewall with no luck. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing with no luck. I've also tried manually updating Battleye, but that's no dice as well.
The only server I've been able to successfully play on was one I believe didn't have Battleye initiated; it didn't specify if Battleye was or wasn't initiated in the server description though, so I'm not 100% positive. It looks as though I'm not the only person to experience this issue, but it's still pretty rare. It's annoying to have to find specific servers, but something I'll deal with in the mean time. I enjoy the game far too much to kick it to the curb.
SON OF A BITCH! I was refreshing their page ALL DAMN DAY
IT`S OUT GUYS GO GET IT INSTALLED
Got the patch installed last night and joined a server! WOW it loads 10X faster than the original patches! The only server non whitelisted I found at the time had 4 people on it so I couldnt really play much. Hope to have my PC at work ready for it today
Problem finally diagnosed. Apparently my anti-virus was causing the problems with Battleye, even after adding exceptions, so I have to shut it down to play. Really dumb, but oh well.
what antivirus? i want to insult it
anyone say McAfee?
I'm uploading the DayZ Invasion 1944 mod files which include the I44 mod for ArmA 2. Since the DayZ commander method seems to be giving people problems. Here is the CBA part you need. https://www.dropbox.com/s/9jgf8vk7pu4jv99/ARMA2CBA.zip
Ill post the link on this post when it finishes uploading.*** Done: Here is the link: DayZ I44 Mod Files
For those of you unaware, Invasion 1944 is a Complete Conversion mod for ArmA 2.
DevilDog also does a D-Day vid: Great stuff. DayZ Ivansion 1944 mod uses this total conversion for DayZ:
