Stuck on NYC1 with 1.4.5
Stuck on NYC1 with 1.4.5
Playing Day Z Mod to. Joined a server with 50 players is fun they said.
Getting broken connections and lags! GREAT! And the chat message is getting fully spammed with people joining and leaving.....seriously? Now that is ridiculous!
It works pretty damn good for alpha tbh.
Was just in Cherno on EU2, at the harbor with some dudes. We got shot down by a couple of bandits who were hunting for us anyway. ;(
I am getting stuck on loading on EU2.
Here's the explanation for long loading times on full servers:
HIVE (the connecting application between the server and the master system) currently runs asynchronously, but on one thread. It has to do ALL updates and each update can take about one second. With fifty players, moving constantly, currently this means that the thread spends nearly all its time processing player updates. The whole system was working "okay" until I split login into two parts, which means two transactions for the server. I had to do this, because ArmA2 has a limitation on string size and loading in data for inventory for heavily laden characters was breaking this. It also meant I could add no more data. A new transaction means at least twice the length of login, as they aren't timed together and are in competition for a chance on HIVE's thread.
The system prioritizes those already in game to provide the best playing experience. The best advice I can offer is to either wait, or visit a server that is not overloaded. Disconnecting and reconnecting will do nothing except place you lower in the que and also increase the loading by adding another transaction.
Anyone who has seen HIVE's output window will know, that the poor application is pushing well beyond its limits. It needs multiple threads.
I will be splitting this out into two parts, one thread will be dedicated to logins and deaths, one will be dedicated to player and object updates. This will double the capacity and the speed.
I've been in love with DayZ ever since I tried it yesterday. Knowing that you can go anywhere on the map in a harsh survival environment is so appealing.
Any ETA on how long it'll take to split them? Are we talking hours or days?
edit: that was fast
I spawned near a barn when entering one of the servers, after having found lots of goodies earlier today. It was night so I entered said barn, where someone else was, I knew that one should never trust anyone, so I entered the barn trying to hide from him and at the same time with my body language not look like a threat. He shot me instantly, and I died. I've only met two people so far, and both of them has shot me dead immediately. Now, I knew that one should never trust anyone in survival games like these, but is murder and PvP this common in DayZ or did I just bump into dicks?
I'm still loving this mod, as stated in my post above, but people seem to be dicks to not allow any cooperation.
Wait, we are on 1.4.6 now
:O It's split now
Asking in the chat works, but take the response with a pinch of salt, as they might be lying. (haven't happened to me though)
I usually just ask who someone is if I see them. If they answer, I ignore them. If they don't, I'll shoot.
Yeah usually as soon as I know someone's in the area I try to at least let them know what my intentions are so I don't get randomly shot by a paranoid friendly.
I was on US4 in a cafe when it rebooted, am I going to die when I log back in cause I'm in the city?
So I purchased ARMA: CO (original and OA) off steam because of interest in the Dayz mod, but am having problems playing.
I installed the mod files using the directions contained, and while game is recognizing the mod (@dayz is in the top corner of the screen) when I try to join the Dayz servers the game states I am missing required content.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I was really looking forward to playing this mod.
Also should add when I first attempted to join the Dayz servers a message came up saying the server did not have keys for one of the Dayz files, but after deleting that file I am now completely unable to connect
Said file was dayz_30.Chernarus.pbo
US1 server, still loading issue.
I was in Pavlovo sneaking around when this asshole zombie comes out nowhere and screams at me.
After shooting it, I found myyself being chased into a house by 30 zombies which promptly multiplied into thousands.
After I killed around 50, they finally got unstuck from the door.
All of my why. I fucking hate these zombie spawns.
Still got in though.
Have you ever thought about just pressing the goddamn 'continue' button
However I'm experiencing a completely black loading screen after connecting to the server that seems indefinite, is this the loading problem mentioned above or am I just impatient?
I've been getting that as well when I tried connecting to both US2 and US4 servers. I figured it was just the servers updating still so I'll just wait it out.
Wow, I just lost fucking all the items I had gathered up on the EU1 or 2 (can't remember) because it didn't save at all the entire time I played from start to server crash.
First thing that happens after the update. I am PK'ed. So much for humanity :(
I apologize if this has been brought up, but does anybody have any idea which Dayz servers are loading correctly? I've tried US3 and US4 and niether is working, will have to try the EU servers
If this is an individual issue than please disregard this
buying arrowhead just for dayz
NY1 is going to shit. First infinite loading, after infinite character data, and now infinite receipt files.
Let me die already.
Huh. Just drove my car's wheel into a tree. The car then got set on fire and exploded, killing me.
Goodbye, silenced M4 and NVGs.
