Its good u finally found it but erockers right I would move it from that location now lol
Well slightly interesting morning. Went down by Electro to fix up Ufgy's broken bullet ridden ass. As I was scouting (since I went there on the dirt bike and didn't want to die). I was running back to the bike then seen something extremely bright to my left real quick I was running forward and it disappeared behind a pine tree. I stopped back back pedaled and there was the Silver Car. I looked at it for a second (it was 200m or so out) and then I seen movement at it's back driver side. It was a guy crouching in camo. I fired once and didn't see a death message. I hadn't checked my zeroing, but it was around 300 I thought, but since no death I fired again, no death, then I fired again and he died. I fired all 3 right around the same cluster and a single shot from the AS50 kills. Looks like it must have been lag or something, because most gruesome death I have seen yet.
1 must have hit him in the legs (think that was the killing blow since he didn't fall over on the 1st or 2nd shot), 1 went through the chest as you can see the blood spurt, the other went right dead center in the forehead (you can see a light pink area there, it was spurting, just that shot must have been between the mess ). He must have been looting the car, sounds like Catnip parked it there? He had on Camo but only had an Enfield. So I moved the car up to 095, 115 if anyone wants to go collect it. It's mint and has engine, fuel tank parts, and some full jerry cans on it.
Then went to NWA later and on my way back found a mint Four wheeler just on the road heading South East out of Kabino towards Stary. It's literally right on the road, someone must have flipped it (maybe someone from here?) But it's just outside of town, you can't miss it. So hopefully someone goes and collects those two vehicles. Also I believe Allen found a Tractor at Green Mountain, and sounded like it was mint as well, and I'm pretty sure he left it there.
hey guys im lookin to team up with some peeps if anyones up for it im 29 from manchester uk bin playing a few weeks now have mic etc
The installation of this mod is completely fucking retarded... Never have I dealt with something so poor.
I run the lastest beta patch and sweet fuck all updates according to DayzCommander.
I join a server and I get stuck on *waiting to create a character* or *LOADING*
I got one guide asking me to run some random exe and another telling me to run something else
Dayz website is under DDOS attack.
Help me out here. What the fuck do I run and edit...
Look the version number stays outdated on Arma 2 no matter what I do.
EDIT: Its late and I got work. Thanks for any help in advance
I have no idea, it should be.
I saw you on this morning, but you weren't on TS and I don't have you on skype. I'm in cherno with 4k blood if anyone wants to give me a transfusion :3
With that amount of teeth gnashing frustration just getting this mod running, it's safe to say this may not be your cup of tea. Getting things running is just a minor problem compared to some of the things that happen in game.
and thats why i'm awaiting the standalone version... whilst devouring all your stories and videos and screenshots and :'( i wannit
Then I'll direct you to one of my previous posts:
You just can't sweat the small stuff in this game, was my point. The fun ratio is still at least 85 to 15. If you freak on the 15% you need to find another game.
EDIT: @ Aceman, you have to install all the beta patches in order, not just the latest, I'm not sure if that's your problem or not. There was a metric crap ton of patches between installing and being able to play, I'd keep doing it until Commander says it's right because it usually is right.
But Aceman, I had probs too.
All i had to do was:
1) DL Arma II and play it to the start menu.
2) DL Operation Arrowhead and play COMBINED OPS to the start menu.
3) I DL'ed Six Launcher and let it update the game for me.
Those three steps got me up and running. I think.
This game is just so cinematic. It is like a movie directing itself as you just try and survive.
There I was wandering around the landscape long enough to get my food and health both bright red, with no clue as to where I was going when I came across a town complete with a church. I make my way there in hopes to find some food or water preferably both when I spot what looked to me like a crawler. Wielding my axe I decided I'd simply go kill it so I wouldn't have to worry about it when this crawler begins to stand up! I thought shit the zombie sprouted legs? I continued at it swinging a few times and I notice this zombie has an axe! Then it was obvious it was no zombie... it was a survivor. I back away and whilst not being prepared at all to meet another survivor accidently type "Friendly!" in the group chat. In my panic trying to communicate with this stranger I hit every button but comma in my attempt to switch to direct chat. I hit enter then "/" again, then shift and then finally I was like damit! Comma! I switch to direct chat looping through the options 3 times and finally get to direct chat and type "friendly!". By this point us backing away from each other and me not trying to antagonize him any more was enough for him cause he had walked a few meters away and lit a flare for some reason. Then he takes off running . I try to follow him with my jogging not aware you can run/sprint in the game but I couldn't find him. I make my way to a few houses I thought he would have gone to and I couldn't find him. I shout a few more times hello, but nothing... Needless to say I continue my search for food in the same general area, now filled to the brim with zombies. I make a bold attempt to the church ground but that is when I get surprised with a few zombie. Feeling brave I decided to take'em down, being the wispy zombies they are I take a few blows from the zombies and end up lowering my blood more than I would have liked too. I scout around the church and other than a few graves I came across nothing so I decide to continue on.
After a very long run through woods and over hills my food, water and blood at this point are all blinking red now. Still struggling with vision impaired I make my way to another bigger town. I was like I'm probably going to die from thirst and starvation so might as well die trying to find food and water at least. I quickly attempt to scout a few houses successfully checking two undetected when a few zombies decided to spot me. Again I'm running... Zombies seem to be coming from everywhere. It was clear, that this was nearing an end, I'm going to die. Then, I hear a mans voice! And he too was asking for help! He was being chased by zombies as well. He asked my to take down a few so he wouldn't alert more zombies till he cleared the area. I take em down and quickly type "Low blood! death near!". He starts firing a few rounds. More continue coming, he tells me to meet him at the warehouse. So I go. I make it there go up the stairs of the warehouse move down the railing some and collapse. Now I'm lying there unconscious with 1500 blood. Half way through the timer the dude starts trying to talk with me. Me being unconscious unable. Thankfully he see me on the ground. By the time he gets up to meet me, I'm up. I was like I have 1100 blood I need blood. He hooks me up with food, water and a blood pack. Man saved my life but it turns out he was on the verge of death as well with only 1000 blood.
We end up good friends and continue on our journey together.
Playing with a friend really takes this game to a whole new level. Now I got a mic setup and this game just got a whole lot better!
TLDR: Was about to die, dude saved my life! We team up! Game becomes super fun!
Where in the flying you know what is the jeep that I call mine? Heads will roll.
Hacker server i died on.
You take my buss I kill you!
I parked the white truck that was left back at the "original" base where the Ural is. When I get some time, I'll take the Ural over to the leftover tents and load it up.
Gave dayz another go after a short break. Got into a server with a buddy of mine and immedietly found a busted ATV. So set out to cherno to get engine parts and some blood packs. Ran into 2 black SUV's with guys in ghillies driving, surprisingly they come up to me and just honk and tell me to get in. So were driving along when all of the sudden I see a huey fly over and both our suv's explode..
So have a feeling I was riding around with 2 hackers who also got killed by another hacker..
Shame that BI cant just release a patch that restricts scripts instead of the games current open to scripting nature. Dayz has probably drawn more people to arma then the game itself ever did.
Done. I took it over and cleaned out the tents. Someone had an empty tent where the Ural was parked, so I put our nicest guns in there. Woe to them who steal from it.
It still may have all been for naught, I'm hoping Al or Ufgy just took them for a spin and someone didn't stumble into a gold mine.
I took the white truck, which someone parked in the spot where the jeep was. I didn't see the jeep in the area yesterday when i was on.
I maybe on alittle later when I get this paper I have to write done. Can't wait for some looting!
Yeah, I swapped spots and put the truck where the jeep was so it didn't stick out so badly, I figured that the green jeep would be safer on the outside. That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if the jeep didn't just wind up somewhere goofy with all the server/hive hiccups that went on last night. I saved the UAZ no fewer that 4 times, though, when I got it back to camp. The mystery continues.
Does anyone else have to try like 5 + different servers before you get in? I always get stuck on loading , sometimes its like 8 servers before I get in. Also mistakingly double clicked my ak 74 in my inventory and it dissapeared forever! Same with binocs. Anyone confirm this?
I've lost an item out of nowhere once.
And my friend said he put a map in my pack but I never got it.
If your pack is full, sometimes the item thats moved to it will vanish.
I asked Ufgy if you were Kevin that was on this morning. He checked TS said he didn't see you. I seen you on on Steam, but no messages from you and with myself listed as playing I just figured it wasn't you
It was me, I need to go back to being TacoTown lol. I wasn't on TS because there wasn't anyone on there who was playing so I was like fuck it lol. When you guys getting back on?
Probably tomorrow, I play such weird times, weekends I play at like 4am, early week I play randomly depending on if I adjusted my sleeping schedule. And tomorrow is Monday, so all depends on when I want to sleep.
Sleep is for the weak
