    @Dairyfree I bought it based on story's from the mod with no real intention of playing it until it's more robust but I'm 70 hours in and enjoying everyone of them.

    It is buggy at times but it's an alpha what do we expect. If you buy it send me a FR on steam if you want someone to run with. There's a group of us most nights.

    Ok, the feedback and having a look at what they plan on adding has convinced me. I had already decided I wanted anyway I think.

    I'll add my steam name in here once I've bought it.

    @speed182

    I wouldn't wait. There might be a zombie apocalypse tomorrow. ;)

    Seriously though, if you can tolerate a few bugs there's worse stuff you can spend your money on. I've racked up 77 hours as of last night, so I've easily got my money's worth.
    I didn't play the mod to the point of acquiring vehicles and such, as I usually played alone or just with a friend. As such I don't mind that they're missing for the time being. If you played the mod a lot, then your mileage might vary.

    @INSOMANiAC if there is going to be a big group of us, I think it would be worth getting a team speak between us all.

    I've found plenty of berets.

    Does that count?

    @Br0ken_Engli5h I only played the mod for a few hours and I did really enjoy it.

    Then the standalone was announced so I decided to wait. Didn't think the wait would be this long though!

    So... I'm going to buy it tonight and I have a mic so will join you lot Friday night after I familiarise myself with it.

    EDIT: Rocket posted on Reddit: "When you disconnect, you character waits around for 30 seconds (currently set in experimental but subject to change) before disappearing. Forgot to include that on patch notes."

    That was one thing in the mod I didn't like, combat logging.

    If anyone is having FPS problems there's a way to gain 10-20 FPS boost editing the config here.

    The latest experimental patch has finally hit stable branch with a few tweaks to the previous experimental build.

    Differences between 0.33.114855 and 0.33.114926

    - Spawns: .45acp box of 25rnds added to loot spawns

    - Server: Optimized synchronization and transfer of variables within and outgoing from server (significant performance increase on server, of 5-10 FPS)

    - Animations: Mosin bolt animation after each shot updated to match hand animation

    - Animations: Removed footstep sound from pointing animations

    - Animations: Pointing gesticulation now possible even when holding 2 handed weapons

    - Animations: Clapping now possible to initiate while holding 2 handed weapons

    - Crafting: Guns are no longer placed on ground while being painted (if not necessary)

    - Crafting: You won't loose attached universal weapon flashlight after M4 painting

    - Items won't longer appear on ground after unsuccessful force feeding/drinking/fibrillating/handcuffing and won't lose quantity

    - Effects: gunshot sound of Magnum reverted to original one

    - Weapons - fixed error in config of shotgun snaploader causing low velocity and damage

    Time to find a quiet server and replace my scoped Moisin with an SKS I think.

    put about 40 hours into this since I picked it up a couple of weeks ago. Really enjoying it, only thing is I struggled with an endgame, got my character fully geared up and didnt really know what else to do.

    Tried banditing but felt really bad after my first kill sniping at NWA (although he was climbing the firestation tower to snipe himself probably, but it still felt wrong), so myself and a friend decided to do a bit of heroing but struggled to find people to help.

    I was actually pretty happy to get killed in Elektro to start over, although I wasnt so happy at hearing my corpse get looted by some bandit.

    From what I've read you'll puke as soon as you become stuffed, emptying your stomach and making it easy to starve to death. It's probably best to only drink 4-5 times past the hydrated indicator in your inventory screen.

    It helps explain how I ended up dying of starvation in the experimental branch despite finding a few cans of food. I thought the hunger and thirst stats were screwed.

    Kamyshovo and Elektro are both decent places to go if you want to go bandit hunting when geared. On full servers the amount of gunfire you can hear just standing on the outskirts can be unreal.

    @speed182

    Yeah, there's now hydrated and energised. I've just logged in to check my char is still alive and kicking and because I was healthy before the update I've got both of those as my status now.

    Did anything kick off last night after I left? My steam went down, so I lost voice comms.

    @Br0ken_Engli5h Nah, it went down for everyone, I was talking in-game and Dan managed to hear me but we couldn't find you.

    So we headed out into safety and logged.

    If it tells your stuffed in a green box your fine but if it's orange then you have to move slowly otherwise it will cause you to puke and red will just Luke streight away.

    It all went wrong last night broken I'm looked on a side of a hill on elktro so will be making a run for it on logging back in.

    I found the game a fair bit smoother while playing last night as a whole, but had some odd dips down into single figure framerates once in a while. Not often, perhaps once every ten minutes and only lasting for a second or two.
    I didn't go into the middle of the big towns either, but performance seemed a lot better on the outskirts looking in.

    Update from Rocket on the current issue:

    The problem was identified today, a hotfix is being prepared but a longterm fix for the underlying issue will take a great deal more time.

    Tech explanation follows:

    The problem was with an optimization regarding strings. We have been removing the way ArmA traditionally handles strings to have it deal with a string-bank instead. This means instead of comparing a string (which is really just an array of numbers), it only needs to compare a number (very easy for a computer).

    There is a string type in engine which should hold a string-bank of unique strings, thus it can compare two strings just by comparing pointers to buffer. That's what the optimization we made relied on. Unfortunately there is a bug with it, and it is possible that two exactly the same strings can exist at the same time and the compare just fails. That's why sometimes are the same textures reloaded all over and over again for some things in the world causing absolute chaos to rain on the GPU.

    Since update 0.34 I've had a lot of issues with my frame-rate it seems to be jumping all over the place, if it was a steady 20 or 30fps then I could live with it but it going from 60-25-8fps I guessing I will get killed because of it at some point I already missed a chance gunning someone down because of it.

    Yeah, I've stopped playing until they fix the fps as it's unplayable at the mo.
