|Wanting to try this out right now for some reason... the need is strong! Anybody know where I can get ARMA cheapest at the moment? I want a Steam key, but the Steam version is £25. Was hoping for a few quid off that! Even a fiver less would do.|

Actually, I've just seen that you only need ARMA II: Free plus the Operation Arrowhead add-on. Is that true? I thought you needed the Combined Operations pack OR both ARMA II and the add-on... I didn't think the free one would count.
Free will work, so long as you buy the Operation Arrowhead expansion. Not sure all the textures will look as pretty but it's cheaper. Went for the non-steam combined ops myself.
Not sure if the Bohemia Interactive store is any cheaper (or steam enabled) since it's down for me atm.
Yeah it's down for me too... it was working earlier on but I didn't note the price!
Might just end up buying the Combined Ops then... the textures on ARMA II: Free (which I already have) are pretty bloody terrible.

Cheapest around at the moment, i personally haven't used cdkeys but they get good reviews, ive used alot of other digital sites in the past with no problems.
Ah great, thanks a lot! I'll check out a few reviews of that site to see what the score is. Seems good so far though!
The Party Ural (tm) was a great success and one unfortunate death aside, the night was a triumph. Lots of guns, zombies, bad driving and raiding. Even an ATV race around the airfield thrown in (I won though Apollo did try to do most of it on two wheels).
Followed by two heavy machine guns taking down wave after wave of zombies. Very therapeutic.
Parked up somewhere safe and quiet hopefully for more fun soon.

hmmm, just had a 'friendly' hacker who teleported everyone. When we were teleported we had a box in front of us with an AS50, ammo, food, NVGs - everything you'd need. random!
One problem could be the issue of game length, unless someone clever managed to program the dangers to draw players towards each other as numbers drop.
With a reworking of the loot spawns whereby all spawns are non-replenishable (like helicopter crash loot is now) and where there are no animals (or water bottles) and where the only guaranteed / renewable form of food and water was at a pre-set location then that would slowly draw people in towards that location once non-replenishable stocks have been exhausted.

Also on a different note, if anyone wants to join us, we now have a base camp, vehicles and enough equipment to outfit an army... and the Party Ural!
@Cosquae What server are you on with all your goodtimes party gear?
So someone was kind enough to leave a car (unfueled) in the southwest airstrip hanger.
My friend and I have been using it for the past few days and it makes things so much easier! Hitting shops is super fast, one in while the getaway driver sits outside with the engine on!
Just hit the Northern airfield and rinsed the location in ten minutes. I drove around with a gaggle of zombies following me whilst I beeped the horn while my friend cleared the area out.
Vehicles are great until you crash them. Very easy to get yourself blown up unless you slow down before bumping into something.
Blew up my pick up truck last night trying to ram it into an ATV I flipped by mistake. Rammed the ATV into a wall and boom... ATV was fine though. Demolished a concrete wall.
I crashed a tractor into a low wall one time, or a rock, and it blew up and essentially would have killed me. Was fun driving it around for a while though.
@psychokitten Welcome to come on over to 'Camp ' and play around with the vehicles and big guns. Filled a Ural and 2 tents full of stuff now.
Awesomesauce. I haven't been on to play in ages, I almost felt like going on a suicidal run since I'm not about much, but then I thought even if I don't play I don't want to lose my fancy weapons and NVGs!
@Cosquae pm me dude!
Alas, sorry all, camp is gone
Server restart killed it... thought that was supposed to be fixed.
We shall rebuild!
Hopped onto the same server as Cos and the gang last night. Didn't see anyone, but thanks to a tip-off from them I'm now in possession of a mahoosive backpack, DMR and Bizon-SD.
No map yet but I'm reasonably comfortable using the out of game map and landmarks now.
Sniping outside Balotta and I get teleported to the middle of the ocean and dropped.
At least FTL is out now...
I'm so unbelievably terrible at this game. I can search for hours and hours, barely surviving... and still not find a bloody weapon! Not even an axe! BAH!
How do I install this with Steam?
I have ARMA and OA from steam and downloaded commander but it won't update my arma to the latest version!
I have to use a different shortcut to the beta patch, rather than running it directly from steam. I do have this shortcut in my steam library, but I've added it as a non-steam game.
Basically, purchased through steam
installed dayz and beta patch
created shortcut to beta patch
added shortcut as non steam game in steam.
I don't know if that helps or not.
Yeah. Sorted it last night eventually, and proceeded to find out I would suck if anything turned into zombies.
So some guy was basically teleporting around the game world and killing peeps with his uber gun lost my AS50 as well as other assorted goodies along with everyone else on the server.
Reaching the end for me now, will have to wait for the full game me thinks.

Guys if you want a cheat free server join FR140. It runs gotcha-anti hack which pretty much blocks all scripting including teleports, weapon spawning and other stuff. I've been playing on it almost every day this week and i have seen no hacks. It's also a pretty hardcore pvp server
It has a chat window at the bottom left which shows the ban actions so you can see when people try to hack weapons in and then get banned.
It is so easy to cheat.
A friend and i tried running a script and it's so simple it's sickening and it seems you are only caught if someone sees and reports you.
The amount of hacking going on is crazy. Joined a server yesterday where all of the buildings you could enter blew up and were rubble!
anyone having an issue with dayz commander?
site seems to be down and in the program itself it's unable to grab the version from the server to check if it's up to date...
