Does anyone have the "Anyone in Cherno" cartoon?
Think you linked that as a image rather than a link, or the image you tried to link isn't an image.
Nah, they've taken the image down. Fuckers!
ArmA II Combined Operations (what you need for DayZ), is 20% off on Steam right now: http://store.steampowered.com/sub/4638/
25% off on Bohemia's website.
get PMC too. it improves AI and engine dramatically. There are also many things in DayZ that use file from PMC.
Really? Like what?
lol fair enough, i guess i should try not to encourage him then huh?
No. No you shouldnt.
you remember those errors that would pop up about "deleted.something.pbo"?
Those are files from the PMC expansion. Those are the weapons and vehicles etc that you find. I used to have those messages ( which were nice for letting me know I was in the vicinity of something good.) Then I installed PMC and those messages stopped. I still find the items but without the messages appearing.
I also looked up those errors and there were indicating that they were part of the PMC expansion.
Alot of the weapons in DayZ are from the multiple expansions all the way up to BAF. Soon, they will add dogs which are in the Latest Exapnsion Czech Armed Forces or something. Do remember this is a mod based on ArmA II as a whole. CO is all that is required but the rest of the expansions help improve the experience. For example, I can play on a server in ArmA II that has Vickers tanks from BAF. I do not have BAF so the tanks look like crap even though they are still there. The tanks also will lag out my rig because I am missing important files. I can still play, but my experience will be nerfed.
I thought you said you would create the art for the TPU DayZ/ArmA logo? The Team XML works in DayZ because it is running off of ArmA II Engine.
When you install it make sure you do it through Six Updater.
There's one thing that PMC changes with DayZ and that is the character textures. Nothing else. As far as Arma II goes, I don't really care.
as much as i want this, i dont want ARMA II so i'm going to miss out until its <$10, or until it becomes standalone.
I had Arma II, never played it. I bought OA just to play this mod, still haven't ever played either games. I've already played this game enough to warrant the price I paid, so even if you don't want Arma II (I assume because oyu don't plan to play it), if you got a few others to play this with, it'll make it worth it to buy for just this mod alone.
I loved ARMAII but it just took so long to get everyone on and organised, however the games did last hours.
I would always say how I wanted a STALKER mod for ARMA and some folks were doing it but it wasn't ever finished. Then I bumped into DayZ and I'm having a hard time finding another game that take me away from it.
I like the mission editor. I just made an AI Helo insertion raid on a Russian outpost in Balota.
It was fun to watch.
The mission editor isn't something I've pissed about with, I think I'll do that whilst we wait for 188.8.131.52 which is scheduled for some point today.
Ahh a new reason for me to play dayz again? New patch today?
Mission editor is fun..
Word of advice if you use it, restart your game before you jump into a match. The editor has been linked to being a bad memory hog, if you jump directly into a game after edting it may lead you to crash or run badly..
Was that way with arma 1, I expect the same with 2, as the coding is pretty identical..
PS: memory flush trick: Hold left shift and hit the mius key on the numpad, release them both then type "Flush" (no quotes).. screen
will flash and purge your vram.. Sometimes helps with stability if you start running badly.
ARMA II was 7.99 just last year. Not gonna pay more then that.
Keep an eye on the Steam Summer Sale. Might get lucky and get the "full package" for cheap
It's already on sale. 20% off on Steam, 25% of on Bohemia's website. They aren't going to cut the price anymore at this time... Unless on one of the days of the summer sale they have some sort of larger package deal.
I like the sound of this mod. Been following this thread for a while but get the feeling i'd get pissed off at bugs and pricks killing me on sight. An open ended sandbox zombie survival game is about as good as it gets in my book. Should i take the plunge?
Without a doubt, yes.
Not if you get pissed off with bugs and pricks. This is mod is an alpha which means bugs and pricks galore.
If only DayZ included the Mission Editor or allowed you to call in AI help.
