Arma 2 Dayz Mod: Zombie Survival Simulation. - Page 142

I just picked up CO on Steam, trying out DayZ today. I'm so bad at this tongue.gif Any groups with room for a scrub?

Also, does anyone know of a straightforward way to play with Steam picking it up as A2:OA?

Install the mod, you can find a guide for that somewhere. Get the Arma 2 Beta Patch, just google it and get the latest. Then if you wanna start the beta version with steam you need to offcourse download it and install it. Then follow this guide, this will let you play arma 2 beta version with the steam overlay. thumb.gif

Right click on arma 2 OA, go to properties.

set launch options to this

"-beta=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion -nosplash -mod=@Dayz"

go into program x86/steam/steamapps/common/arma 2 oa/expansion/beta

and copy the arma20a.exe and past it into
program x86/steam/steamapps/common/arma 2 oa

This is how I use the steam overlay with Dayz.

Everytime you update the beta, you have to just recopy the exe into the arma2 oa root and you're set.

Make sure you right click on OA in steam, click launch combined operations

No I join servers with the lowest ping even if they are close to full.

WOHOOOOOO!!!!
My sweet L85 has returned to the world of DayZ biggrin.gif

I was out on my own when I found out I didnt have anything to drink, which meant I had to log out and wait for a friend of mine to get in. After he had gotten me a drink, we had to go rescue one of his friends who had been attacked in Stary, but manage to get away. After we got a hold of him we found a heli, and what was in it? A freaking L85 wheee.gif
With dumb luck I managed to get my hands on this gun again! tongue.gif

My group might have an extra pair, I'll check it out Sunday and get back to you with what they say if you'd still be interested in joining us. It's Scutzi and myself from the BF3 thread, and another friend.

I found one server and that's the one server that I play on. Once you establish yourself with vehicles and tents, you tend to stay on that one server since they will not transfer to another server. My group's truck is full of rare items and fully loaded on supplies, so that's definitely not something we'd want to leave behind.

Quick question.

Can one easily host their own private server?

Thanks.
