HOW TO INSTALL!!


To install Dayz to the the Steam version, follow this guide.
quote:

1.) Make @dayz folder in
#:\#\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead

2.) Make Addons folder within the @dayz folder
Your folder stucture should look like arma 2 operation arrowhead > @days > Addons

3.) Extract all downloaded files to this Addons folder

4.) In steam, right click on ARMA2: Operation Arrowhead, select 'Launch Options' and type -nosplash -mod=@dayz

5.)Load ARMA2: Operation Arrowhead through steam and choose the Launch ARMA2: Combined Operations option.


To install Dayz on a non steam install, follow this guide.
quote:

1.) Make @dayz folder in
#:\#\#\arma 2 operation arrowhead

2.) Make Addons folder within the @dayz folder
Your folder stucture should look like arma 2 operation arrowhead > @days > Addons

3.) Extract all downloaded files to this Addons folder

4.) Create a shortcut to Operation Arrowhead on the desktop (or where ever), right click on it and go to the Shortcut tab. Add -nosplash -mod=@dayz after the quotes at the end of the target line.

5.)Load ARMA2: Operation Arrowhead


There are also programs you can use to auto install and update, but I don't use them because I like to keep things fresh.
Two guides have been posted in this thread for two different programs, I'll quote them here.

To use the Arma II Launcher (http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=8241)

Download the 6 .rar files, extract their contents into your C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead\@Dayz\Addons folder. You will need to make the @Dayz and Addons directories manually.

Load up the Arma Launcher and look for the @Dayz folder on the left hand window. If it isnt showing up you have either not set up arma launcher properly or have not named the directories properly. Drag the @Dayz mod in the arma launcher to a group on the right side window. Then select Arma II CO in the bottom right hand pull-down menu and launch.

Filter multiplayer servers by mission name - Dayz.

To use 6 Updater...
1. create "@dayz" folder in your OA folder
2. create "addons" folder in @dayz folder
3. extract all the .rars there
4. start 6 updater - at the top there's a thing that you can click to sync with gamepsy server lists and ping other stuff, i ran through those just in case.
5. find day z server in updater
6. right click and add the server as a new preset (it'll pop up in the left 'pane')
7. right click the new preset and go down to update, choose update and install mods - it should open another tab where it lists the mods and extra things the server has on it
8. wait an eternity as it downloads various things at .5 kbs
9. add " -nosplash -mod=@dayz" to steam launch preferences
9. try to play.

Not all bandits are bad. A lot get the bandit skin from Self Defense. Meaning they were fired on but the player missed, they returned fire and was more successful with their bullets. They then lose humanity if it is a survivor that shot at them.

Tough world.

Here is a little story about bandits. When you're a bandit your skin is a specific model, also when you kill someone your humanity drops. This will make it take much longer to become a survivor again. What's the big deal though right? You're just going to lose some stupid points, right? Wrong.
Once you turn into a bandit you're going to get shot at by every survivor in the game, mainly because they'll fear you will try to kill them right off the bat. When they kill you, they don't lose humanity, they're rewarded with a bandit kill. They can freely loot your body and take all your items you collected.
"I'll just find them and take it back". Not likely, once you die there is a good chance you'll spawn 30-40 minutes (real time) from your body. There is the off chance you'll be near your death location, but it's rare. By the time you get back to where you died, your body will be looted and they'll be long gone. On top of this, it's hard to get a bandit gang going as just about everyone is willing to stab each other in the back.
Everyone is on-edge in this game, even the people I play with. 3 of us were checking out the airfield and I spotted a survivor with a bandit behind him. We ended up killing both because we couldn't trust a guy hanging out with a bandit.
Right now I know why our character is saved in server.
Bandit is not bad, survivor is not good, so who is friendly? redface.gif
Thanks for the info +rep

Arma 2 CO is Steam's top seller atm. I'm sure D3 coming out is a big part of that though. Still waiting for a Steam sale for OA.

Haha exactly! Saw 2 bandits last night looting, they didn't respond to my friend ask, debated shooting them but left them alone instead. I was very inland and by myself.

I think its g. And flares you push f then click. The you have to push f again so you wont leep lighting flares. If you wanna pick it up and take it with you, you go to where you threw it and type enter and the option to pick ir put out will come up. Just select puck up flare. Z, x, and c let you go prone, crouch, or stand up. Period and comma let you switch between chat channels and bring up chat bar. Good luck.
