    Slight desync from the server; slight lag. Red chains been a more serve form of desync.

    Weird, I have got yellow and red chains, I seen a video of them botching Ufgy's sniper shots on someone just slightly. But I haven't ever seen a yellow chain cause a rubber band type lag effect where a shot isn't even heard. I've seen red do something like that, but thats usually when a server is going to restart.

    Kinda why i stopped playing it, then i started to host my own and even though people enjoyed playing on it they were not willing to help with a small charge just to cover the electric bill.

    Dying through means of bad connections is pretty much a part of this game. Has been since the start. Chalk it up to being killed by malaria or something. :laugh:

    I don't mind the shitty connections - it should be expected for this level of build.

    I'm a complete noob in the game but at least i can axe zombies to death. But other players suck donkey balls. Soon as someone gets a gun, they just kill everything on sight.

    Apart from one dude last night that just quietly followed me in the dark (don't think he knew how to use his torch).

    I like the game. A retail (or polished and fully working) version would be just lovely but it wouldn't sell much when it's not got power upz and hollow console-esque challenges.

    This mod is like an old western, slow moving, kinda quiet but it's got character. Compare it to standard games now with glitz, glamour and no soul.

    Sad that.

    This is actually a common misconception, Yellow is Packet Loss from the server and is MUCH worse then red which is desync

    Guys I was reading the DayZ forums and found a post listing an excellent replacement for SixLauncher. It is DayZ Commander. It keeps both DayZ and ArmA II up to date and will tell you what versions you are running. You can also add your friends to it and it will tell you what server they are on etc.

    My DayZ name is my TPU name.

    But I've also added TPU after it. That way we can identify TPU'ers and not SHOOT THE FUCK OUT OF EACH OTHER.

    ;)

    Nice! Hopefully it allows you to select what Arma II beta patch to use. I'm on the latest patch now and cannot connect to most servers. Though, it's most likely due to administrators not updating their servers properly which always seems the case.

    I wonder if I'm going to have to reinstall the game again if I use this new launcher.


    Ha, that's a good idea.

    My aliases are:

    DrRocker
    Erocker
    Red Cross (Medic) - With this one people are way less eager to kill me. I've healed and traded with some serious bandits with this guy before. (You know they are bandits if your heartbeat in game starts racing)
    Mayor of Cherno - People like to kill this one.

    nope no need to reinstall the game. The main reason you can not join most servers is that a new patch just came out. 95208.

    Ill link it for you. the Arma2.com link does not work at least for me.
    http://www.gamefront.com/files/22012233/ARMA2_OA_Build_95208.zip

    during install it will give a bad cd key error. ignore that.

    I have an XML site going for the Squad XML in the profiles. It will automatically put TPU etc in the name as Tags. As well as arm patches and vehicle decals if we use an image like MM had stated he would make.

    Yeah man I'm pretty sure I told you how to do it.. Or someone else on Teamspeak anyways. I don't really care about the XML stuff, it just one more reason for some guy with a sniper rifle to shoot you. About connecting issues, yes I know, I posted that in the post you quoted:

    DayZ Commander works great btw, seems to be a much more stable program
