    @INSOMANiAC Thanks for the heads up. Held off buying the mod. Surely time to see what all the fuss is about! :-)

    Hope the patches come thick and fast after the new year. I've got over 300 rounds of ammo and not a lot to shoot at. I know there's been a mention of the zombie count being upped very soon but I hope it's not a long wait.

    @twelveways you can play it by yourself just treat everyone else is the world an enemy they few I've met just since re-spawning just end up being tense stand offs between collect items or you could just find a server with next to no one in it and away you go.

    These are your friend. If you find yourself in a town or village that's been picked dry of loot then keep an eye out for a well and you can drink until you puke.

    My first foray into DayZ:

    I ran around for around 30 mins and finally found a well to stop myself moaning about being thirsty. Then I was hungry. I'm seemingly never happy.

    Ran onwards to find a small town which had no food. In the last house a guy suddenly appeared and cracked me over the head with an axe, before suddenly exclaiming "Shit, sorry, I thought you were a zombie!"

    I was bleeding badly. I had nothing, he had no bandages. He apologetically stayed with me until I bled out, bless him.

    The end.

    Yet somehow that complete waste of 45 odd minutes was great :D

    @StarchildHypocrethes you can get old clothes and right click them in your inventory and turn them to rags, you can use them as bandages although they may infect you, they never have with me though. You can do it with most clothes if theyre not badly damaged

    Does the alpha suffer from the horrendous memory leak the mod does?

    I can only play for an hour before the frame rate drops to single figures in places...:mad:

    I've tried all the tweaks, before anyone suggests!

    No, I never had that in the mod but I didn't play it for ages, might be best to ask about that in the mod thread

    This game. It turned me into an axe murderer. Not out of malice but out of mistrust of my fellow human and hope they had something on them to cure my rotten fruit sickness.

    Karma then, that on my ill way back to an apartment block I'd been forced to leave a medkit at due to lack of inventory space I got shot.

    Karma is a bastard.

    Nah, little point. I've been all over Google and it's something most suffer from. Plenty of good advice, sadly none of it works.

    Damn it! I left myself near a hospital to search when I logged back in and when I did log back in I was in the middle of stand off with some guys and their assault rifles which didn't end well for me. Guess that's my fault for wanting to play in servers with 35+ players.

    They updated it today which adds survivors bodies staying once they are killed found some interesting things while strolling around.

    Anyone fancy trying to meet up somewhere and strolling around in a pack? I never played Day Z mod but I'm tempted to pick up Arma 2 as it cheap and see where the standalone is heading.

    After watching some videos online I will just be sticking with the standalone found me the sniper just need a better scope for it and I will go survivor hunting as payback for the arses who have killed me on site.

    You signed away your right to be annoyed when you bought a clearly flagged alpha.

    @INSOMANiAC - Same thing happened to me yesterday. I reckon you both probably were shot by a third survivor, as I'm pretty sure that's what happened to me - if they had a silencer you wouldn't hear the shot. Camping bodies and wounded casualties to see if you can use them as bait for an additional victim is deviously efficient, I'd imagine.

    You'll have to get it running first, which is a bit of a pain.

    1) Download the Mod on Steam
    -Be sure that you have ran both Arma 2 and Arma 2 OA at least once. Just to the menu screen is fine
    2) Download DayZ Commander
    3) Open DayZ Commander
    4) Look at the tabs at the top of the program and click, "install/update"
    5) Update Arma 2
    6) Update DayZ to 1.7.6 (OR WHATEVER VERSION MOST SERVERS ARE PLAYING)
    7) Backout of that and go back to the main DayZ Commander page
    8) Click on settings
    9) Turn on both of the Steam options

    DayZ Commander is a fantastic desktop app, far superior to the in-game server browser. Filter "Hide wrong mod version" in the server list too.

    Can't you just use the Steam version of the Mod?

    I dont wish to be an arse but I'm going to be... theres a dedicated thread for the Mod, which is where you should really post about that as it is essentially a totally different game now and this thread will end up a clusterfuck of information that doesn't apply to the standalone

    Jumped on for an hour yesterday just to see how it plays nowadays, landed on the east coast, found a baseball bat and a few other things, got tagged by a zed and started bleeding. Came across another noob who said he'd never played before

    Yeah, right

    Started following me, then chasing me and then he took a swing at me. I unfurled the baseball bat and started swinging.

    'You're terrible with that bat, just die, I want your backpack, let it happen'

    Frantically I swing and BLAM I knock him down, set upon him swinging

    He dies but not before saying 'lucky fuck'

    Get to the next town, raid a few houses before encountering two guys crouched over a dead noob, they spot me and shout 'yoh! we just found him, we're friendly!'

    Yeah, right

    'Need some bandages there big guy?'

    'If you don't mind? I've got a defib you could have'

    - Upon announcing this the one with the Axe comes at me fast, he connects.

    I swing my bat as wildly as I can knocking the defenceless one down before passing out but there wasn't much hope anyway.


    Still can't trust anyone in this game huh? - I wonder if it's just gamer spirit or if these 'shoot first' situations are ever going to stop, I'd love them to be able to implement a system where it has benefits and fall backs to being a Bandit. Karma system SORTA worked but everyone inevitably ended up as a Bandit scarface lookin mofo
