Also HDR Quality on Very High, this will make things glow during the night. Depending on the weather.

Hey guys,

I just saw this thread and haven't sorted through all of the posts yet to see whats up with the game. I got the DayZ full pack based on what I had heard about the mod during the summer sale. Little do I know, OCN has a group. Awesome.

A little confused about DayZ though. I downloaded the launcher, but what of the 4 ARMA2 games do I need installed? I have the original, Arrowhead, PMC, and BAF. Also, is there a guide to optimal settings and stuff? How about OCN guys that play together?

Just need Arma 2 and Operation arrowhead but with the other two you get High resolution textures, just somethin to make it prettier. A bunch of them use a mumble that's around here somewhere. Also the big thing for optimal settings to me is matching your resolution and your 3D resolution, and turning down Mouse smoothing.

There's a lot of stuff that I'll never understand about this game lol. Giant triangles invade my binoculars now and again.

Arma 2 and Arma 2 OA is the basic, you can go with just OA but will get crappy textures, if you use them both and the others it may give you pretty nice textures, I know some of the things in the mod comes from other DLCs.

Get the beta patch downloaded and installed, along with the DayZ mod.
The most optimal, for me atleast, is AA off and PP off aswell, then put your gamma and brightness all the way up, and set your HDR quality to Very High. This will give you something, my group calls poor mans night vision, this enables you to actually see something at night, meaning you can play on lower populated servers. You can set the others as you please with this setup.

If you are using Sixlauncher or something like that I cant help you there, I think it is easier to just do it manually wink.gif

Sweet sounds good. Thanks for the help +rep

Now do I need all of them installed, or just on my steam account? Does the game automatically know I have the others installed, or do I need to run it through them or something?

I recommend using Dayz Commander for an easy set up, besides actually manually installing it but besides that just install the games on steam, make sure you run each of them to the start menu at least once then you should be good to go.
