    The best way to get DayZ and Arma 2 Beta running on Steam is as follows. Once you have run the beta update and installed the DayZ files to the right place you will have a file in...

    C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead



    This is the command/batch file for running Arma 2 in Combined Ops mode. Make a copy of this file, I named it:

    _runA2CO_beta DayZ.cmd

    Then open it up and look for the line:

    call "%_ARMA2OAPATH%\Expansion\beta\ARMA2OA.exe" "-mod=%_ARMA2PATH%;EXPANSION;ca" "-mod=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion" -window -nosplash -cpuCount=2 -exThreads=7 %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9
    You'll want to edit it so that it includes the DayZ mod too, here's mine:

    call "%_ARMA2OAPATH%\Expansion\beta\ARMA2OA.exe" "-mod=%_ARMA2PATH%;EXPANSION;ca" "-mod=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion" -nosplash -cpuCount=2 -exThreads=7 -mod=@dayz %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9
    Note how I removed the -window and added -mod=@dayz
    Run this file to launch your game.
