    There is no chat generally, makes it more hardcore.

    The UI is entirely shite but that's just ARMA, UI intuitiveness was an after thought. Apparently they've addressed it in ARMA 3 but DayZ probably won't make it onto ARMA 3 it'll no doubt be a standalone game by then.

    I'm dying to get back into it. It's such a brilliant concept. I'm totally inept at the moment, have no clue how to actually use most of the items I find, I have no idea how cautious - or not - I can be with the zombies, I have no idea where to go, or if there's even an aim to the game, and I loved it for the few hours I played yesterday. It feels very pure which is refreshing.

    How do they run around so much and not get swamped all the time? Takes me hours to move a few meters in DayZ :)

    Excellent video, enjoyed the convoy revenge section around 15mins.

    Wow,bonkers session. I'm slowly getting the hang of it. Got an axe today and chopped down some zombies. The hit detection seems really rubbish though... Can you kill them in one? I think I got one down in a single hit, but another few took a few chunks out of me.

    I ended up stumbling across my first human today! He had tonnes of equipment and helped me out. Told me most people just shoot you. I opened a "Medical Supply" he had and it looked to me like it had 5 of every single gun in it?! Was he a cheater? Or just server mod? Seemed to be able to spawn zombies too...

    Then while we were shooting some zombies in the yard, someone else came along and shot us out of the blue :(

    hard to tell if it was a hack or server mod, what server were you on? if it was a private one then it could be a mod for that server. Certainly sounds iffy though. The axe i find usually takes a couple of swings. Maybe its one hit for a headshot but i always find it hard to hit a specific target with the zombies moving about.

    We had a mad Russian invasion on our GY server. Stopped by a new spawn fella and he somehow bumped me out the gunner seat on the chopper and opened fire on me. Wasn't very polite so we gunned him down before being swamped by the rest of his team. Then got dropped off on the international hotel and heard ruskies below me talking about a 'fucking noob sniper'. Sadly had to jump off the server wrote it got busier.

    Definitely sounds like a script kiddie. I've come across guys with med boxes full of every weapon you can think of before.

    Played Namalsk for the first time this evening. Very eerie map. Got all geared up, but do you think I could find a tin of beans? Died of hunger/blood loss :(

    Public servers really are rife with hackers. Went onto one for a bit of shooty pvp, after 5 minutes I get teleported next to two hackers and another player,(who turned out to be a friend from our Grimsby server who I isn't realise was online) they armed us to the teeth and sent us on our way.

    Then 5 minutes up the road an invincible hacker kills us both and runs me over. I then log off. Won't be doing that again for a while.

    Has anyone played since the 1.7.4.4. update was released a few days ago?

    Unsurprisingly I can't log into a server now. FFS. I think it's probably Battleye related again. Heap of shit.

    Hah, I had Battleye problems updating again, however I fixed it in one fell swoop by logging into a vanilla ARMA server, jumped into a lobby and it updated fine first time. It just doesn't seem to like DayZ one bit.

    I think we DayZ Friendlies should have another run around, I miss it greatly and I think it would be extremely therapeutic to survive the apocalypse around the same time of year that we survive our extended families shit banter.

    Who's up for it?

    well and truly knackered my installation trying to get the steam overlay working once again with individual steam purchases of A2 and OA.

    Be fucked if I can remember how to get it working if OA isn't in the A2 directory.

    PlaySix launcher will do it fine

    Once I redownload all 13gb's of files once again :(

    Goddamn I love this game, I even love the 3 hours of scavenging I put in only to be held up by someone with an assault rifle. He then retreated from half a mile before firing a shot to let me know I could pick up my weapons again.

    Easiest way to get the steam overlay is just add play with six launcher as a game, not sure how that works as you're sub launching but it does!

    While Frankie does make good videos I reckon he's a hacker. He's always finding stuff far too easily.

    Has anyone played the Wasteland mod? I love the pace of Day Z but don't really care much for zombies.

    Oh and the air of smugness in those videos is insufferable. FPS HERO FROM HIS OWN BEDROOM.
