    @BillMurray Try updating your BattlEye dll's manually. You can get the latest versions from the BattlEye website.

    It seems that this anti cheat method does not much more than stop legitimate player from getting into a game ;)

    Just about to fire it up for a first go, any advice?

    @GreasyWeasel That didn't work so in the end I just deleted all the .dll files, entered a lobby and it updated fine.

    Fair enough. Well, I've just had my first brief go. I found myself wandering around in the dark, I crept into a small town which was crawling with zombie and found nothing :(
    Oh well, I'll give it a go at a later date I think.

    If you can try and team up with a few folks. You can learn a great deal from folk who have been on there longer than you have(I know that sounds a bit obvious!). You're welcome to give the server i'm admin on a try aswell! Search for Grimsby Survivors.

    Give us a shout next time you're on and me and a few other chaps can show you around Chernarus.

    Cheers, I might just do that. I did give it another go. I found a server where it was day time which helped, it also started you off with guns etc which seems a bit of a cop out. Although it was better than having nothing at all and no idea where to find it.
    My BattlEye fix seems to be holding anyway, I haven't had that issue since.

    Yeah at the minute our server is 24/7 daylight. We did experiment with a few hours darkness with a full moon so it was a bit more manageable for folks without NVGS but we ran into a few bugs so we went back to daylight all the time. As I said let us know next time you give it a whirl and we can taxi you around the map and get you kitted out for a bit more of a fighting chance.

    Yeah teaming up makes life a lot easier in DayZ. My friend runs a server that we are on most nights. it's on a standard day/night server (though night doesn't start until about 1am UK time) and has usually about 15 players on there.

    It's a start with the bare minimum server so you only start with a bandage and torch and that's it.

    Our play style varies, some nights we will just try to scavenge and some nights we play as Bandits so it may or may not be your kind of thing.

    We ambushed a bus last night and killed all the passengers on board what was quite funny

    @urban Wasn't it supposed to be out months ago? I thought they were going to do iterative development like minecraft

    That's the stage the game is at now, he's trying to tell you it's still in development.

    Popped into one of UK#10's new servers for a look earlier. Ambushed by a four man squad and shot to pieces. Was a fresh spawn, no weapons, no gear :(

    Quite enjoying the Survivor Gamez

    http://www.twitch.tv/survivorgamez#3744

    Ten-ish teams of two, all start in the same place with a flashlight, all go at the same time and aim to be the last ones standing. The 'gamesmasters' can switch to everyone's screens and see what they're doing, most of the participants are streaming on Twitch.tv too, and they have to deal with the military (attack choppers, etc) as directed by the organisers.

    It does show how wonky Arma can be, but it is loads of people murdering each other in a zombie apocalypse so it's alright :)

    Is it still KOS in most servers at 90% of time? Loved the early days when you could group with random peeps and even the tension when you were guessing if one of them are going to betray you and shoot in the back or not :D

    Think it depends where and what you're playing now, as there's so many versions and maps and servers. Most servers I wander on to have people looking to team up and people wanting to shoot you in the face. But yeah, most people do want to murder you :)

    Good stuff, went on the quiet Namalsk server and chatted to the other bloke on there. Turns out we were in the same area and he wandered in to the store I was in and didn't shoot me on site. Later on I crashed my tractor and died. Just re-found myself and got most of my stuff back (AK47 Kobra, meats, etc). Fun :)

    Edit - Died again (fell off a crane), found myself again, found a chopper, repaired and fuelled it (effort!), flew over to a guy, blood bagged him and killed some insane invisible Predator zombie, he flew us to a safe spot, he refuelled and I logged out. Good server so far, no-one shot me!

    Good interview.

    I'll be happy if they can make the shooting feel good. At the minute the combat is really unsatisfying because the player/zombie animations are so shoddy and because there's a big delay between your shots connecting with a target and the target actually reacting.
