    I ran for 30 minutes as 20 zombies chased me into the woods of chernogrosk.

    I died as soon as I reached for ammo.

    I was down to my last few drops of blood in my session last night but had a nice collection of weapons (despite being empty but eh). I found a functional jeep in the middle of the city with full fuel so I took it for a spin. After a few minutes of driving, a zombie spawned not more than a metre infront of me and caused me to damage one of the wheels. A little later I met another player that was generous enough to give me a blood pack, which about 10 minutes later I left for some food. When I came back everything remained, except my blood level reverted :(.

    I went on to the EU 1 Server a while ago. I ran around with ~5 other guys who were all carrying green chemlights. We walked around a large town for around an hour and didn't encounter any zombies

    Well great, I couldn't play today because I was getting the "infinite Loading Character Data" screen of doom.

    It went away once only for me to find out I had respawned without any gear after finding a goddamn Winchester. Now you know why I hate alpha's, especially when they're fun, because they always glitch out eventually.

    Also, even though I get far better ping on the US server, I always go to the Euro servers as nobody there has PvP'ed me yet, but it sounds like the US server is a shithole (Knowing the amount of, say, CoD players in my country, it's certainly no wonder)

    Just died to one zombie. One singular zombie. It spawned at some random shack in the middle of the forest and I had my flashlight equipped instead of my M249. I tried running but then realized when I went to switch to my M249 I had to stop running (Arma logic) and it knocked me out in one hit. I got up, then stood there like a fucking idiot while I got caught in the "Switch to pistol, switch to primary, switch to pistol, switch to primary" animation that happens when Arma decides it doesn't want to work. Then it knocked me out again and I just flat out died. 250 zombie kills, an M249 with 600 rounds, and a new tent I was off to go set up my first camp with all wasted.

    I can't play anymore either, because when it's nighttime the game is literally unplayable and as soon as I get home from school it's already pitchblack.

    You know that random time when your character passes out because there is not enough blood or whatever?

    Really annoying.

    I logged back in I am on top of the silos in cherno, need food and water ASAP dying of thrist/hunger.

    As my char climbs down the ladder I pass out of hunger right on the ladder. Wake up fall like 150 meters and loose all my shit.

    So I was running through Stary Sobor with Tark and a few survivors I linked up with in Chernogorsk, we get swarmed by zombies and one of our group gets his leg broken. I'm inside a house shooting the zombies trying to eat him from the window and when the last zombie dropped I went outside to aid my fellow comrade. So I come running out of the building ready to give this guy some morphine and Tark turns and shoots me in the face once, instantly killing me. My character had 231 kills, ALICE Pack, camping tent, tons of ammo, food and he had roughly survived for 3 IRL days. He thought I was a zombie because I was running around with my M1911 out and it's basically the same animation as the zombie running. Anyway it spawned me on top of the court house in Chernogorsk as a VERY old character I had used in the Europe server and I was passed out and dying from starvation AND dehydration (last drank and ate 1877 minutes ago). Kinda strange how it reverted back to an older character instead of giving me a completely new one, but I can't complain since that character had an M4A3 CCO and a couple mags for it. A nice fellow named Archival came by and me some food, water and a blood transfusion.

    I wonder if that was an intentional feature or a bug.

    I can't figure out how to play it. I got it for OA and it doesn't load, then I got it for Arma II and I spawn in a bunch of NPC's that are just standing there. ):

    Oh, you have to modify the shortcut?

    You still have to modify the shortcut to load the modfolders.

    -mod=@Dayz;

    Edit: This way you don't have to slam every addon of yours into the regular addons folder and you can manage them invidually. Any folder in arma 2 directory can be used as a mod folder by putting it's name into the -mod= line.

    DayZ is so stupidly buggy. I fought off some zombies, and I'm bleeding. I keep trying to get bandages out of my backpack, but it's not working. So I drop the backpack, and it disappears. Then I bleed to death before I can run back to where I saw bandages earlier.

    Goddamnit.

    When it's like that usually it doesn't save properly, so the next time you get on there's a fair chance you'll have lost a bit of progress but will have your stuff back.

    I have the same problem. I made a folder called "@dayz" in my Steam/steamapps/common/arma2/addons folder, then I launch OA and try to join a server I get the message "you cannot play/edit this mission it is dependent on dowloadable content that has been deleted".

    Start the game as Combined Ops. I don't have the game on Steam, but you right click operation arrowhead and select launch combined ops afaik.

    I have the same problem. I made a folder called "@dayz" in my Steam/steamapps/common/arma2/addons folder, then I launch OA and try to join a server I get the message "you cannot play/edit this mission it is dependent on dowloadable content that has been deleted".
    The addon folder should be in the operation arrowhead folder and it should look like this operation arrowhead/@dayz/addons/*.pbo files here*. Just read the readme, it's all explained there...

    I started the game on the US server which is at night (2100 hrs more or less). It's really dark when I spawn which is near the beach and I think I'm all alone for a couple of minutes. So I threw a flare and put it on myself. Not knowing where to go I started running randomly until I found a train track. From a distance, I can see a few chemlights and flashlights dancing about.

    I ran straight at them though wary of them seeing one survivor and take advantage of me (after reading some of the stories about that here). They almost shot me but not because they want to take my equipment instead they thought it was a running zombie. Luckily that flare I wore save me. Actually there are 13 of them so I really am lucky in my first step in the now zombie-infested Chernarus as I immediately found some friendly survivors instead of having to fight hordes of zombies by myself.

    So there we went searching for supplies and equipment while shooting at zombies that come in our way. Friendly fire tend to occur a lot at first time but everyone quickly learned from it. We're almost at 18 people in our group but most of them have to log out of the game so it turned into splinter groups. I found a bolt in case I have one but eventually trade it for some revolver ammo.

    I got lost a few times though managed to supply myself with enough ammo, bandages, drinks, food and some morphine. We reached a port and in the darkness I fell into the water. Others tried to help me by finding a ladder but I could not see any.

    After a few minutes I ragequit.

    "Switch to pistol, switch to primary, switch to pistol, switch to primary" animation that happens when Arma decides it doesn't want to work. Then it knocked me out again and I just flat out died. 250 zombie kills, an M249 with 600 rounds, and a new tent I was off to go set up my first camp with all wasted.
    firing (mouse 1) usually solves that bug for me

    Anyway it spawned me on top of the court house in Chernogorsk as a VERY old character I had used in the Europe server and I was passed out and dying from starvation AND dehydration (last drank and ate 1877 minutes ago). Kinda strange how it reverted back to an older character instead of giving me a completely new one, but I can't complain since that character had an M4A3 CCO and a couple mags for it. A nice fellow named Archival came by and me some food, water and a blood transfusion.

    I wonder if that was an intentional feature or a bug.
    happened to me aswell. i reported the bug yesterday to a former usec member who said he'd contact rocket

    DayZ is so stupidly buggy. I fought off some zombies, and I'm bleeding. I keep trying to get bandages out of my backpack, but it's not working. So I drop the backpack, and it disappears. Then I bleed to death before I can run back to where I saw bandages earlier.

    Goddamnit.
    sounds like desync since taking stuff out of your backpack isn't dayz code.


    i also suggested a system similar to ace ruck's since it's pretty dumb that people can access your backpack without you even noticing
    not to mention they're easier to pack/unpack

    @cba is required, innit?

    Also, if it's Chernarus that it says is deleted, you're not running Arma 2 CO.

    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.
    Right now it gets your latest character since all the different instances are nolonger separate, and if you die but have an old server character somewhere, that character is what you may respawn as.
