    Would I have to download PMC or BAF if I were to download both Arma IIs and the mediafire packet to play on the DayuS or whatever the name of the server(s) was?

    Also guys, can you make sure audibility and visibility works? As in that it doesn't bug out after a while and get stuck on something, even better if you have showscripterrors on so you can tell when the error occurs.

    Basically if you're moving around and audibilit/visibility doesn't change at all depending on stance, speed or such it's broken, do tell because we need to know.

    Edited:

    Why is the US server the only one that doesn't allow @acex_sm?
    Because my server has the key for it

    Also email robinhubner@gmail.com if you want some certain keys on the server, explain what mod uses the key you link to me.

    Is there any way to make the direct communication louder? Right now even if I'm standing right next to someone it's really quiet, while normal voip is fine.

    No. Only A2 and OA (or Combined Ops) is required to play. All PMC and BAF units are still in the game, just low textures and demo maps for the DLCs as well as a single mission from PMC

    To be honest, with the database being synched across all servers the realtime day/night cycle doesn't really bother me because when it turns to night I can just hop on a server with daylight. I may not get a great a ping as one of the EU servers but wandering around in pitch black darkness with no light source isn't exactly my idea of fun.

    I was playing on a Wasteland server and went rogue and created a trap by making a fake base with a bunch of cars in the middle and a bunch of food that I didn't need and anyone who would come(except my scouting friend) would be shot and I would get more loot! I never really wanted to do this but it seemed everywhere I went and joined up with someone, I would get shot so I decided to do this myself.

    I trapped and killed about 10-15 people and got a bunch of guns. Then I had to go so I scouted into a town and opfor shot me to death...

    Just got owned at the airfield, I'm pretty pissed right now. It took me ages to find it because I can't read a map for shit and when I finally did arrive there were only a few zombies off to the distance so I thought right, I can navigate through this I said with my empty weapon strapped to my back. I ended up going through about four hangars and hit a goldmine. Found a dead survivor with a nice, filled backpack and a SAW with three hundred shots.

    I had just hit the absolute jackpot according to my standards because for two hours prior to that amazing discovery I was running across several fields and forrests finding a barn or any type of building that may house some loot that wasn't filled with zombies as I had no ammo. A few moments later I notice that the hangars are getting swarmed by zombies all of a sudden, in a random pattern either coming towards or away from the hangars I previously scouted.

    This is where it got stupid, I was being very careful making my way back pretty much prone shifting so I had 1m audible and 1m visible. As I was making my way across I had to hold out in a hangar as there was a zombie heading straight for me so I thought right, I'll prone here for awhile and hopefully he passes. About two minutes later I checked to see if he passed, but to my shock he was right fucking infront of me so I'm literally shitting myself at this point crawling my way back hoping he doesn't spot me.

    But alas he did, ended up mowing a few down with the SAW and getting hit several times resulting in a huge stream of blood pouring from my body as I was booking it from about ten of them and gained a few along my sprint because the airfield was absolutely fucking packed. There was a fair distance between myself and them so I tried to get ontop of one of those steel framed towers but the option didn't present itself quickly enough and I got destroyed.

    It was all for nothing. (Holy fuck, that was long)

    tl;dr I went to the airfield, it ended up getting swarmed, got spotted, got chased, died.

    So I was exploring the airfield at night and suddenly have a bullet go right past me. I run into cover, pull out my rangefinder and spot the bastard who shot at me. He's got his rangefinder out trying to find me again. I managed to run through the forest next to him, throw a flare at him and proceed to mow his ass down with my SAW. As I'm walking up to his body his friend shoots me dead.

    Goddamnit.

    I have taken another (two) lives.


    I was trying to link up with my friend in the cherno construction site, and I had recently acquired a shiny new Remington 870 w/ flashlight. After nearing the outskirts of the city and running through one of those two story cafes you can go inside, I noticed a guy following me, not saying a word with a weapon drawn. Now due to several prior encounters I am paranoid as fuck, so I legged it up the stairs and broadcast on direct: "mate, if you come up these stairs I'm going to blast a hole in you".

    10 seconds, 2 shotgun shells, and 1 shot from my buddy far off giving cover fire, I emerge from the house, alone.

    Edited:

    Actually I killed another guy earlier too, in significantly less dramatic ways. I went semi AFK on he cherno town hall roof, texting etc. When I looked back at the screen there was a guy pointing a revolver in my face. Needless to say he got a stomach full of 7.62.


    TL;DR im a paranoid fucker, dont sneak up on me

    Staying together is pretty hard in the night when only one person in a group has a microphone. In about 5 minutes, I managed to come across 3 other guys, go with them for a bit and then lose them out of site and end up continuing alone.

    Man, walking through Elektrozavodsk at night with a flashlight and having Cry of Fear music in the background. It was really eerie seeing as all I saw was piles and piles of dead players everywhere.
    The one that really got me was at the school, there were bodies of players and zombies around, but there were several bodies of zombies at the top floor but no players. I walked outside and saw that there was a body of a player laying pretty close to the school, and it was angled just right from the rooftop zombies. My guess is he jumped off.

    Free food I guess.

    I got shot in the back by a sniper today. After the timer ran out I took cover, healed myself up and countersniped with my lee enfield. IF your gonna kill someone make sure you finish the job.

    I wouldn't mind knowing snipe distances, personally

    If someone shot me I wanna know how goddamn far away they were when they decided to spray my grey-matter across the landscape for the zombies to lick off the pavement.

    Oh and Profan, Do you have any idea on when they are going to look into the character loading issue? Not the thing while loading, but the fact that you sometimes respawn with basic gear for no reason or like when today the server restarted I was at the NW airfield. When I reconnected I still had my gear but me and tons of other players spawned just above the southern coast.

    Basically, So we don't lose our gear anymore due to bugs.

    pretty sure this can't be done serverside. there might be a client addon for it.

    it's still an alpha so i'm sure they're trying their best to root out any problems with saves/respawning

    Yeah, I turned the corner and saw you sitting in the corner of the building and thought I was dead. Totally wasn't expecting it, didn't think my flashlight shined so brightly that it illuminated the building.

    check your addons folder and make sure you don't have mods in there (cba, csj, etc.)
