    I haven't ran into a hacker in my, albeit short, time on Panthera. I always logged out when I saw more than 3 people die in quick succession on Lingor servers. Served me well thus far.

    My biggest complaint is doors still seem a little screwed up in Lingor and Panthera.

    Related: Since updating to the latest version on DayZ Commander, it is pretty difficult to find a version on the server that matches the version I have installed. Even checking the boxes doesn't seem to help.

    I would say the game is somewhat less buggy now. Last couple updates fixed up some annoying things like that artifact problem with the soldier bodies.

    Hackers are still a problem if you want to play on official servers with high populations. Less so on private hives and alternative maps.

    I think Lingor, Panthera, and Namalsk are probably the strongest of the new maps.

    Namalsk is the most interesting to me at the moment. The map features a ton of military loot, but hardly any food or animals. It also features more extreme environments and things like warm clothing, water bottles and heat packs become vital commodities.

    Yeah, I was having big dramas with Commander. Fortunately the new version of 6Launcher, withSIX, is decent. i made the switch and I've had no problems. You need to move your dayz mod files (called @Dayz in whichever location your Arma OA stuff is stored) need to be in your My Documents folder that bit caught me out for a few minutes

    Can I play the game on a solo server? I am set up with a very low ping situation at the moment and I was curious if this was possible?

    Edit: I'm removing what I had here before because I forgot that (at least) one of those packs comes with a keygen. Suffice to say that yes it is possible to run a server by yourself and I'll check my setup later to see if the one I used is clean, because I think it is. If it is I'll try to remember to repost the link here.

    Tunngle link

    That one is fairly simple to run, but it doesn't give you any easy access to options, and I have no idea if vehicles work in it (I assume they do though). All you gotta do is download the installer and run it, and it gives you two .bat files. One for the server and one for the client that you probably don't need if you've already been playing DayZ.

    Tunngle link

    This one is a more complicated affair that gives you a LOT more options in how you configure your server. I haven't gotten it to work myself.

    WARNING WARNING WARNING

    Be very careful about what you run out of these packages. Often they have programs such as keygens or tools 'to help you if you don't have a CD key' included as ancillary downloads. If you are playing by yourself you do not need a second key and these programs aren't going to do anything but get you hacked. The packages themselves, as far as I know, are clean.

    EDIT: My recollection when I ran a solo server for myself was that the (easy) package itself did not include any suspect binaries, but I know for a fact that the instructions linked to suspect 'tools'. You don't need any extra keys to run a private server if you bought ArmA.

    Between last video and this one, we managed to find not one, but 5 different cars, 2 helo wrecks(one with an AS50), and made it most of the way across the map.. We only kept one vehicle, a UAZ, but when we logged back on today, it was gone, of course. So our goal for today is to move to the NW airfield and get better weapons, then find another car...

    Uh oh. Looks like I'm single handedly keeping both the DayZ and ArmA 2 threads rolling. Maybe I should just let this one die...?

    Finally, I beat DayZ. After a bunch of annoying glitches, of course.

    Yeah I'm stil lreading this, just haven't played sinced all the hacking and the crazy artifacting. Then there have been loads of other games out that have taken up my time. As soon as the standalone hits (literally day 1) I'll be back on.

    I made the mistake of updating. DayZ @ 1.7.4.4 & ArmaII @ 98xxx(?). I have very few games I can join.

    All right. You guys asked for it(and thank you for doing so :) ) :

    We try Namalsk some more. This time I find a vehicle and after a couple of firefights, I make my way into the underground bunker in Namalsk.

    We are moving to the server-client MMO architecture model. We are making weapons and items ‘entities”, meaning we can support customization and variables assigned against items.

    That should cut down on the hacking.

    It might kill the unhived servers though.

    I'm still playing the heck outta this game. This weekend me and the guys are going to put in a good long session

    We found our first chopper the other week! What a feeling it was to zoom around the map at our leisure, raiding different locations with impunity.

    I mean, it was fun while it lasted anyway :P We had it for two days and when we logged in on the third day, she was gone

    Man, I have not played DayZ in months. I really should come back with you all and see whats different. I guess school, work, and GW2 has drained a bit of interest from the game. I forget where I am, I think north of Cherno but I am pretty nicely kitted out, with an LMG, Ghillie suit, NVGs, and plenty of water. Need food and bandages and don't want to risk all this awesome stuff just stumbling around out there.

    After not running into hackers too badly in a few weeks of DayZ, I have a frustrating experience at the end of a pretty awesome play session. Welcome to DayZ. Standalone soon please Rocket!

    I'd wait for the standalone which is still supposed to be this year, but we'll see.

    So is it worth buying the Arma 2 pack on GOG for $17, or should I wait for the standalone release?

    I heard that was coming "this year" ?

    I guess it'll probably go on sale when the Steam winter thinger kicks off, even if the standalone is delayed.

    So I had my first "successful" character. Made my way to the SW part of Cherno and had a string of good loot - an ALICE pack and some binoculars from the supermarket and a Remington 870 + 4 slots worth of slugs from a random house with a high military droprate(the DayZDB map is really helpful).

    Then I climbed a 5 story building to look around with my new binoculars... and hit V instead of B, jumping to my death. Fuck.

    Don't know if anyone still reads this thread, but one of the SE++ guys rented a server and a decent number of us have started playing again. Artifacting seems to be gone and an anti-combat logging thing is in place.

    So far it's a total shit show *shrugs* Really basic stuff doesn't work. It's alpha, rabble rabble. I would definitely hold off for a couple of updates. It's far, far more broken than the mod was when it released and we all know just how broken that was.

    So far it's pretty much reinforced what I already thought: DayZ was fun in spite of Rocket, not because of him. We'll see what happens over time, but at this point I'd rather go play one of the fan made offshoot mods which tend to have more to offer at this point.

    And if you're just going to post "It's an alpha", I'm aware, save the keystrokes.
