O R'lyeh? Ia, R'lyeh!

Okay, since a bunch of people here are already playing DayZ, I figured it deserved it's own thread.

If you don't know the game, here is a nice video of it:

Day Z is the best thing I’ve played so far this year.
From RPS

Installation tipps:
1. You'll need Operation Arrowhead and Arma 2, you can get them both in Steam for 25€ (in Germany)
apparently it's possible to play with Arma 2 Free but I don't know how and you'll have to do your own research
2. Install both games and run them once
3. Create a folder named "@dayz" in your Operation Arrowhead folder. Create a folder called "addons" inside the @dayz folder
4. Download all files from here.
5. Extract all the files to the "addons" folder from step 3.
6. In Steam, right click arma 2>> properties >> set launch options: -mod=@dayz -nosplash

You are now ready to play the game!

But wait- some server are running the Arma2 Beta patch. (You'll won't be able to connect or will get an error message saying that you are missing content chernarus if you're doing it wrong)
Here is how to install it:
1. Get it from here. It's the one in the green box at the top of the page
2. Install it (duh)
3. Launch the game via the new "Arma 2 OA beta" shortcut that has been created by the installer in your Arma2 OA folder
4. Activate the expansion "@dayz" in game


You should be able to play on all servers now.


Because of the vast scale of the map (225km²) we should organise things a little better. So let's try to find out where each and everyone from us actually is so we can meet up easier ingame.

HERE IS THE MAP

The interactive map

Here you'll find a standalone launcher for DayZ that auto updates the mod for you!



I am currently at Staroye (South East)

I'm in Novy Sobor NW of Staroye.

If you wanna add your Beta Patch Arma 2 -DayZ to Steam (as non Steam game of course):
 Just add the arma2oa.exe as non-steam game, and add "-beta=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion;@dayz -nosplash /high" (without the quotes) at the end of the shotcut in your Steam library.
The "Target" line should then look like this:

 D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead\Expansion\beta\arma2oa.exe" -beta=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion;@dayz -nosplash /high
 
-nosplash and /high are optional, nosplash just removes the intro vids and /high makes the ARMA2 process run with high priority which might improve performance.

http://www.dayzmod.info/ has a few different maps showing loot places, height maps etc., and also loot lists.

I teamed up with some people, we found a car at a forest road, started repairing it, went to Novy Sobor to look for more parts AND THEN SOME FUCKING BANDIT SCUM SHOT US ALL. Probably with a sniper, we had no idea where he was.

RPS has an article about Day Z today.

Only then did the elves begin to suspect that the dwarves were not bringing any Amontillado.

New PSU comes in on Monday, my body will be ready for this.

We drag children off the streets, chain them up in the basement and whip them until they produce normal maps by hand. You know, the usual way.

Okay so last night I decided "Screw the darkness! I'm gonna loot anyway!"


It was a truly terrifying experience :O
I was looting a industrial building when all of a sudden FOUR zombies appear right next to me. I already thought "okay I'm done" because I'm low on blood anyway. But with four incredible shots I took them all down (and then decided it's better to retreat and fight another day)

Just turn up your gamma to max during the night. You can see EVERYTHING.

My group does that, I declare it cheating and blunder around bumping into trees at night.

Well, I'm very interested in this.

Is it worth to extra buy the game just to play this mod?

It's like buying a six-pack of shitty beer so you can get a free 50-year-old single malt scotch.

Yes.

Yes, that is an absolute truth and holds true for almost everyone who plays it.

Which explains why it sold so well on steam before DayZ.
