Well I will start this out folks. I know a bunch of the members here on TPU has pre-purchased the Dead Island game.

This is what is needed in this clubhouse. First if anyone is running a TPU Dead Island TS server, post it up and I will edit this original post to reflect that. Second all the members should include their Steam user name in order for all of us to be able to play some awesome Co-op gaming.

Always on Mic issue
AsRock said:
But if there is some one here who wants to play using vent, mumble or TS3 what you do is run your game and start it then minimize your game and now disable your mic and enable it again which will kill off in game voice.
Analog Fighting on Mouse and Keyboard Tweak
Random said:
I found a way to play analog fighting on mouse and keyboard which imo is the way it should be played . This is from the Steam forums "Lets mod Dead Island"! Although I've made the process easy and uploaded the files so all you need to do is copy and paste.

Anyhow here are the instructions:

1. Locate C:\Users\Username\MyDocuments\DeadIsland\Out\Data (If you don't have a data folder simply create one.)
2. Download this file I've uploaded and paste it into the directory from Step 1.
3. Make the file read only not sure if necessary but do it anyway won't hurt.
4. Start the game and then set your controls to XBOX 360 > Fighting Type: Analog

Warning: You will need to delete the input files if you wish to use your gamepad again.

You should be able to experience analog fighting with this, hold left click to prepare your weapon and then move your mouse to your desired axis of swinging. Hope this makes the game a little better for you guys.

Convince Angela to allow gore games and not change blood color to green :)
Its not because of that, because its the same with the delay in Switzerland, and we have "uncut Swiss editions". I guess its just the European release thats behind. Release date here is officially the 8th. On steam its even the 9th.

no worries, with my omnipresence i'll just move my virtual location to the US

Create a steam account with a USA address. Then change the local steam server in settings later.
doesn't work like that. it determines the location of your IP at each login
