    You're doing it wrong.

    ;)

    I had a f'ing wicked weekend with my friends. We were storming towns, taking down hostilities and blowing the front of Zed's head through the back. The greatest bit was when we all had to take cover from an articulated lorry with about 7 people in the back doing laps of our location. Was a fantastically terrifying experience. Before that, one of our squad got sniped by some ALT+F4'ing cock'ead. I can't f'ing wait for Rocket to sort that crap out.

    I really hope that 1.7.2 doesn't fuck how things are now.

    Unfortunately I'm at work so I can't but I'm pretty sure someone else will be able to help. Have you seen the introductory videos on YouTube?

    I suggest you to spend your time just watching and then reading on the DayZ forums. It'll tell you everything you need to know.

    Means the product key for the game is either blacklisted because it isn't legit or it's for the wrong version of ARMA. For example, you can't use your ARMA 2 key for Operation Arrowhead.

    All the info for getting it set up on Steam is on the DayZ forums. I think you have to right click on Operation Arrowhead (in Steam) and launch Combined Operations but before then you need to make sure the mod is installed correctly and then add the correct suffixes/commands in the Target box in the games properties.

    Try this.

    You have to run steam in administrator mode, I was getting that too. I'll be on TS if you need more help.

    last night a bunch of noobs died at the northern airfield. this led to the group splitting up after respawn. i say we try and meet somewhere in a few days since it will take awhile to run across the map.

    Agreed.

    We ran into the backpack glitch again last night . It happened with Haru and I the night before, as well. Sometimes when putting something large, like a gun, into someone's pack it will disappear. I googled it and it seems to be fairly common. So be on the safe side and drop your spare guns on the ground for your buddies to pick up. Ducky wanted to swap his M16, with 30 rounds, to phenom for a damn crossbow with five bolts. Phenom got his gun, but the crossbow disappeared. Ducky and his f'ing crossbows:laugh: This is after I packed the damn thing around just to give it to him.

    Seems like this glitch only affects the smallest pack.

    I hate the crossbow.

    My favourite gun so far has been an MA43 with a red dot. Currently have an AKM which I quite like.

    New weapons in 1.7.2.

    :D

    I found a crossbow! No ammo though, It was sad.

    Me Ugfy, and his friend Allen played for a good 2 hours today, it was awesome! I found an AK47, then pissed off an entire town of zombies and killed me and Ugfy. Allen killed himself on barbed wire. I love this game!

    crossbows are good to have in a group. just one person in the group packing one to shoot zombies etc when you dont want to or can not afford to make noise. You can also recover your bolts most of the time. ^_^

    Rhino and I are on the southeast of the map. We're pretty much out to get revenge on anyone (armed) for our torments in this game.

    Game is really uncool now that you dont start out with a weapon.

    Cry more. :laugh: It's not that bad really and I like it since it took care of the idiots that would spawn and immidiately shoot all they see. Everytime I've started over, I've gotten a weapon within a half an hour.

    i look forward to the new guys (ufgy n friends) joining us. if we split into 2 groups of 4 we can cover more ground. Especially at the NW airfield. FYI I will not be shooting anyone from TPU. I do not like shooting people I know are friendly. I dont like shooting non zombies so yeah. I liked it when we were rolling in a group. Ill be on soon.
