    Do I need ARMA II and ARAM OAH to play this or just OAH. Not sure since I have never played ARMA II.

    You need both ARMA II and OAH, however you can get ARMA 2 (Lite) for free. If you're OK with buying a retail copy you can get both together cheaper than you can on Steam. Prices have increased slightly due to the mods popularity.

    good news! the devs will be fixing the water/food spawns tonight!

    im still not sure why some of the servers seem to have the new line of sight function working properly and others do not. also, zombies continue to spawn near me. very annoying and almost unplayable.

    1.71.1 looks like thry cant fix the spawn clusters so they took your starter wep away.
    I keep spawning near like3-7 other people just spawning in. If they fixed this there would be alot less rando dm on the beaches.



    Every time i drive my van past cherno or electro they shoot at me 8(.

    One doesn't just drive into Cherno or Elektro. They are filled with the worst people possible. It's like Mordor excepte your are free to come and go as you please and it's probablly safer inside Mordor.

    No food or water yet? I did get an update with Six Launcher today.

    Hahahahahahah or Jajajajajajajajaja! Stay away from them Brazilian servers. If they can't fix the zombie spawning, they should just make the zombies sing the trololol song so they're a bit easier to detect. It kinda makes sense since the game takes place in Russia and all...

    ahh yea hotfix is complete and we now have melee weapons!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! of course the devs say melee is way underpowered and just in testing so probably not worth trying. er, now devs say melee hit to the head will instakill them.

    1.7.1.2 is better but they've broken so much stuff by adding in more stupid features. I love the mod, but they're slowly ruining it for me.

    :(

    I played through a few hours tonight and it went pretty well. Didn't bother with melee weapons though. I definiitely like what they did with the zombies, it's nice to have the ability to ditch them when you have no weapon.

    Oh yeah, I found a working bus that was drivable but needed engine parts. Pulled up to a warehouse, found engine parts and when I went back to the bus, it was on fire and there was some dude next to it bandaging himself up from the botched bus robbery. I put a round from my enfield in his head. Vengeance was mine.

    Since the mods release I didn't kill any survivors only bandits. Now that they've removed the bandit skin and pretty much everyone is a selfish cunt, I've completely changed my stance and have turned into a more cautious player and will kill anyone that engages me.

    Got crippled this morning because some dildo shot me. Weirdly I got a bandit kill and not a murder. I'm happy as I didn't die and was rewarded for my efforts; an ALICE pack, MP5 and M1911 ammo.

    :D

    No morphine though the bastard.

    i got a chance to actually play the game for 2 hours today. i think i am getting the hang of it. i am server jumping to find better stuff and it seems i am much better at avoiding zeds now that they have updated the game twice. i have lots of food and water and ammo but still no weapons! i am searching high and low.

    I might have a G17 and some mags in my pack.. I just don't know as I spent an hour last night trying to reconnect to a server and gave up. I don't remember if I still have the stuff or not. Unfortunately I'm stuck working in 100F weather today until 6. FTL. :(

    well i can play later tonight around the usual time.

    edit: ugh just died and lost everything. it seems like the laggy servers is what causes the zombies to spawn all around you. they should spawn before you reach a town but the laggy ones spawn once you get into the town making it impossible. i had found a bike and was riding it around like a boss. :(

    Game is broke. "eye/ear" meters don't seem to work. Zombies get aggro'd from a mile away and once they start chasing you FPS tanks.

    Yeah 1.7.1.4 is really, really screwy. Cmon hotfix overnight!


    Wastedland is pretty fun once you figure it out as well. No files needed just set your Mission filter to Wasteland
