I'm gonna have to give this a shot. I've been holding back but have really had the itch to give it a go. I've owned Arma 2 and CO for years now. I was hoping to get a good DayZ experience offline with some SP action too..but STALKER has recently satisfied that need in a sense. But some DayZ with some fellow TPU-er's sounds like something I gotta do!
I am reading and watching what's going on with Tigger to see what I need to do.
Well i still can't get in a server, same error as above.
if this game still a hack filled shitshow on anything besides private hives?
Not so much anymore. There are still script kiddies but not so much
Change version arma2 beta to 103718
Thanks I sussed it out, I never had the beta installed on steam, didn't realize I needed it. Seems to be working ok now.
Name in game will be tigger.
I also changed my server back to 103718 beta like is in dayz commander.
Just played on some uk server for an hour or two, spent the time wandering around in the dark. It would help if it showed your location on the map.
some servers do, search for server not using veteran difficulty. Dayz Commander has this filter
Thx, how do i put a server address in the server browser? I tried to find your server.
I was using steam to launch dayZ, but i will try DayZ commander.
To find it in Dayz Commander you can just add the IP in your favorites, and to find it in arma click remote after you click on multiplayer
Or just do a search for Techpowerup
Lolz never though of that :S
"Not so much".. So yes then..
I wish you guys would be more upfront about how buggy and hacked the game actually is. I spent so much time getting all this crap installed just to find out that the game is indeed crap. It's a mod. A very boring mod at that.. Yay, I'm running around then all of a sudden everyone on the server dies.. Or yay I'm stuck in a wall or yay to any of a dozen other lame excuses for a badly coded game..
This game should of died when it started imho.
I dont know, its fun to start with when you have a lot of friends. If you're playing by yourself, yeah, it gets boring and tedious as hell, and when my friends stopped playing, so did I.
Yup, I spent 2 hours running around in the dark (8hrs of night), not even knowing were i was, it did not show my position on the map. Plus it seems there are a number of people that just kill other players and steal their stuff, 1 guy in the server i was on got killed and they took his truck, which it seems are quite hard to find.
I will give it another chance though, i'm going to try to find a server that shows were you are on the map.
I agree though it is a bit of a pain to set up, was for me anyway.
I believe there is a standalone version coming soon.
You should consider playing on this server-
There is no killing on sight(aka no people going around killing other players and stealing their stuff), most players you bump into are friendly as everyone wants to team up so they can have legitimate battles against other factions/teams/bases.
I will try and find that server, thanks.
Downloading the client now, can i just join the server from the game or do i need this client?
Tigger posted on our forums and thought I would reach out and thank you guys for the reference.
We provide for a variety of play styles (friendly, bandit, trader, etc) so he should feel welcome in some fashion and hopefully finds it entertaining. He may still get robbed but there are means to prevent that and there are also ways to enjoy it at the same time.
It is a Role Play server so there are ways to enjoy anything as long as you play along.
Have a peek at our rules or the numerous YouTube channels we have from our players and work out if it fits for you.
Again, thanks for the referral and hope to see a number of you soon
I used to play on the server before dayz got a little bit too boring for me. And If I am correct a couple of the guys here used to play it too.
Yes you do need the client as it makes a few changes to dayz that makes this server what it is.
Nice, how long ago?
August last year I haven't played dayz for aggggeeessss
Had to get Rolle to raise the ping limit for me Used to get around 350-400 ping but never got any desyncs, so gameplay was fine for me
Aw okay. You should give us another go we have progressed a long way since then.
We now run our own Mod, seperate from Vanilla Dayz, and there is a much greater emphasis on playing with other people and getting involved in Role Play.
Just as an example (sorry for the selfish bump and promotion) but THIS is just one instance of the stuff that happens on the server now.
It is good fun and there are many optimistic plans in progress to enhance it even further.
I don't mean to promote but as an active member since August it has come on leaps and bounds since then.
