Did you log back to the same server? If so, someone stole your bike. Vehicles and tents are tied to a specific server.

Wish there were more friendly people in the game. I understand not trusting people but trying to find a weapon just after a spawn and people just killing for the hell of it. The part that is getting frustrating is the way people are acting about it, spent 3 or 4 hours playing last night and got absolutely nowhere. Would spawn, head to nearest town search buildings and next thing you know someones asking if your friendly and not to shoot over voice chat. Respond about being friendly and just passing through and get kos. I would understand if i had something worth killing me over but the only weapons I would live long enough to gather last night were 2 hatchets.

If it just come up with a message that you can click continue on, it shouldnt be a problem that is it.

I hear ya. I was having trouble with getting the game to launch recently, something to do with the beta patch. I had to delete the beta directory every time I started my computer again and reinstall it to get it to work. It has been going on for about a week.

2 days ago, I downloaded the six updater, and haven't looked back. I've updated the game with it twice now, and it's worked perfectly, installed the beta patch each time for me, and it has launched perfectly each time now. Check it out. I'd use it if you're having problems as it has solved all of mine.

Then you just go to "mods" tab, and go to DayZ, right click and choose "install or update mod" and it installs the latest version as well as the beta patch.

To anyone having problems running the game after the most recent patch, What I did is I copied the game folder after installing Arma 2 OA and the Arma patch. I keep it in a separate folder, then when the game updates, I just delete the game dir, then replace it with the backup and apply new beta patch. Hope this helped anyone that was not able to get into the game. You can use this method to make sure 100% you will be able to play on next beta patch.

Yes, direct communication has worked perfectly for me, I am not sure if it is because of the Beta patch. The latest beta patch is required for the latest version of DayZ anyways so you should have it installed. Also only join servers in the server browser that have "1.60.93965" listed next to "Required" and "v1.7.1.5" in the Server name.

This will solve the majority of connection issues and bugs people are having.

ARMA II Beta patch 93965
DayZ 1.7.1.5

I've been seeing a lot of you having problems with the game, mostly due to your DayZ code not matching the servers. Problems like spawning in debug field, ocean, forest; not having sound, invisible, no debug menu.

If you have a clean install each time you apply a beta patch, these problems won't happen. But reinstalling can take up time, and beta patches are pretty frequent. So to ensure you have the game working 100% of the time with minimal effort, you can follow this guide. At the end of the guide you will have a set of default files you will copy/paste each time there is a beta patch, doing this will make sure you have no conflicts between patches. I do this, and I have never had a single problem.

Step One: Uninstall Arma 2 + OA, then go to C:\Program Files or wherever your Arma is installed, and delete the "Bohemia Interactive" folder.
This will ensure you have a clean install of the game to work with.

Step Two: Reinstall Arma + OA and apply the latest ARMA 2 patch located here: http://www.arma2.com/index.php?Itemid=20
Making sure to only do this step, and not installing anything DayZ related.

Step Three: Copy/Paste the "Bohemia Interactive" folder from your C:\Program Files install location; to another location on your computer for safe keeping, these will be your default files. Now you have the core set of files that you will use any time DayZ updates, do not modify the default files once you have pasted them.

Now you can install the latest DayZ beta to your real install location, (not the default files we saved) the patch should automatically detect the correct install location. Beta files located here: http://www.arma2.com/beta-patch.php

Once installed make sure you right-click and add the "-mod=@dayz" to the target line of the "Launch Arma2 OA Beta Patch" shortcut, and run the game via this shortcut!!!

Your game should be working fine now. Launch the game via "Launch Arma2 OA Beta Patch" as administrator.

IMPORTANT!!
WHEN DayZ does update all you need to do is delete the "Bohemia Interactive" folder in your install location and copy the backup "Bohemia Interactive" we saved BACK to that location. Then install the latest beta and do the "-mod=@dayz" to the target line of the "Launch Arma2 OA Beta Patch" shortcut, and run the game via this shortcut.

If you followed these steps you should have the game working within a few min each time it updates, and with 0 errors from now on.

Good Luck!
