    we were on a server with only about 15-20 people which made that much less of an issue. in fact, we starting creeping around searching for people to kill. :laugh:

    So far iv found 3 white cars 2 red ones 3 jeeps 1 chopper (then got sniped) and still have a truck in 1 server. It takes alot of shit to get one working and you need to know where all the gass stations are or you will die.

    i just use the keyboard and mouse. i dont think a controller will help at all for this game but i could be wrong.

    I map my controller to K&M with modifier keys and things like that. I end up with everything I need on the controller minus a few keys. It works very well for me actually. I never had a problem topping kills in matches.
    Played arma, arma 2 and arrowhead like that. Just finished downloading.
    If my layout and profiles are saved somehow it will be easy.. if not I'll be stuck on controller settings for the next hour..lol..

    Controller or a stick is a must for helo's in this game. Everything else is mouse and keyboard friendly.

    This mod is making me wanna install on my laptop.

    I'm still trying to get this thing working..lol.. Looking like I'm going to have to hop on it tomorrow. Idk why the launch icon is giving me trouble. I'm trying to bypass launching steam so I make a copy of the original launch icon and launch it from there. But I have to edit the launch icon and add -mod=@dayz at the end. It's supposed to look like this if I do it that way then?

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead\ArmA2OA.exe"-mod=@dayz

    I tried this using the steam method: -nosplash-mod=@Dayz
    Nosplash works by it's self but once I add the rest it doesn't work..

    I'm sure there is a way to do this without launching steam.. XD
    Well at least my controller is all set and I have the files in place. I'll be ready for tomorrow.
    Worse comes to worse I'll just play with steam open but I'd rather save the performance for the game.

    PS: if anyone uses pinnacle profiler, I can give you a great setup for this game, if you want to use Xbox360, or ps3 emulating xbox etc..

    Bah I have to reinstall ARMA 2 as well or I get the Chenarus has been deleted error.
    You have to have OA and Arma 2 installed apparently.
    I'll see yas this weekend I guess. But I got the rest of it sorted and it says dayz in the top corner of my game. Just that error stopping me and thats how u fix it..

    Man is it just me or Does arma have the best mouse/analog aim you have ever seen? It is so freaking smooth..
    I hope the desynch issues have been fixed..

    I can't remember about Arma II.. can we host a local server to mess around on while we get used to the mod or is it only official servers or?

    There's a ton of DayZ servers. If you need to get your skills polished up, just joint a server with a few people on it.

    to say this game is frustrating is an understatement. it can be fun in groups but currently there are no real objectives other than to stay alive which requires essentially crouching slowly everywhere you go. and since the map is enormous expect to be playing for days on end before you can get enough parts to get a vehicle running :(

    Not ture all you have to do is farm the factory near dolona or w.e its called. fastest way to get car parts. Just run far away from it and run back the items will respawn.

    Good mod. I've only had 2 nights playing but have got the controls down for the most part. I don't fully understand how to pick up items and made the mistake of leaving my empty water bottle behind and ended up dying from having no water. All in all I like how brutal it is. Thou I would @ least like some over all arc of a point other then surviving.

    Lol Catnip killed me in cold blood a few nights ago.. On accident.. XD Logged back in after logging out due to a crazy swarm of zeds. I run in front of him and he mows me down with the 249..lol.. nice.. We have a pretty decent group in here. Hope some more hop into vent. I went into your TS channel Rhino but no one was in there.. We always have a few in vent ^^. We had 6 people together this last weekend. Was great.. We team up a lot now, much more fun..

    That second pic he posted from the bottom of his pics..Yea, that's me dead after he mowed me down.. XD
    I lost that m240 unfortunately later. Had 500 rounds too.. ; ;
