finally got round to getting Arma 2 so i could play this after reading about peeps experiences on here. only an hour in so far and im really enjoying the atmosphere of if - straight of the bat i came up from the beach and found a warehouse type place staying in the tree line so i could keep out of sight spotted a couple of walkers and a couple of hoppers. decided since i had no weapons prob best to move on. then i noticed another player running from the far side (were there were no Z's) i hit the dirt and let him run past. and run he did straight into the all the Z's that i was trying to avoid what followed was a running battle as he tried to shoot off the Z's that were chasing him. as for me i legged it into the warehouse building while the z's were having a noob feast and managed to scavenge a pistol and some ammo and empty bean cans (the latter were dumped) and headed away from the still continuing gun fire to the other side of the building. :)

I can't believe you didn't help him. You monster! :)

Last night I logged out in the woods near the NE airfield with my assault rifle, uzi and sack full of food/meds/drink/tools. Just now I tried to join five different servers and they all had me as a new spawn on the coast...

Dunno if I should keep trying or just admit defeat and start again :(

Edit: I admitted defeat (no will-power or patience, as usual). Sprinted towards Elektro, ran into a warehouse to the east, tried to pick up a hatchet, was told there was no space in my inventory. Checked inventory, still have all my stuff :)

So, papalasarou, if you're around tomorrow during the day and want some help, then get on mumble and I'll escort you north away from the coastal death-traps. I've got plenty of food and medical supplies.

oh look Day Z finally got a retail release

oh wait what, thats not day z?!

Fine with me TBH! Day Z is ace, but it's jank central right now, and combat in Arma 2 is not exactly a world of finesse at the best of times, let's be honest. A game and engine built from the ground up around actual combat, cities, decent server code, etc, but taking some of the survival ideas that this mod has spearheaded sounds amazing. Plus competition can't hurt.

All hail Camp Spaghetti,

A hill top so high you could pluck the last few hairs off a bald eagle. Boasting fantastic views and a culinary menu even your Mamma would be proud of. We cook from only the finest hilltop dwelling livestock providing meat so succulent it could break your bones. Don't forget your morphine! (MEGA LOLZ).

Roll up, sit down cross legged and let me provide you with a cosy spot to camp, trade weaponry and fix your weary selves. Converse over a midnight fire whilst death and fear run in circles below you.

It's time to gather, it's time to take over.

Welcome to Camp Spaghetti (For location details please PM me. I don't just give the location to any poor schmuck)

Love, Mamma's Boy

That 200 Zombie invasion party was scary. Not sure if it was a glitch or a hack though. Alex and I did fine until I said I wanted to try out my new sniper rifle and pulled a Z or two that i wasn't expecting. A good night's surviving overall though.

In need of scrap metal Strat and a lot of it. Couldn't get any of the vehicles going and I got very sleepy. I logged off next to their white truck, I want that fucking truck.

The quad is packed full of nice loot so that would be a main priority to get fixed. We also need to think of a vehicle spot below Camp Spaghetti which is safe. I'm astonished we haven't seen a member of their camp yet, I see a war starting very soon.

Except its not, its ripped off the idea while missing the point, they have taken all the "popular" ideas off the Dayz forum and listed them as their features.

Luckily they are all the things that Dayz wont implement. Hopefully this will mean all the people that want safe houses, skill trees, trading systems, currency, all the standard MMO stuff can go play that and Dayz can get on with being refreshingly different, and hopefully even harder - because frankly I think it's too easy as it stands...

Eh? There's no way that was any of us. We logged at the same time.

Motherload has been in! haha this is exciting stuff. Take them strat, take them one by one and leave the tractor parked in the middle of their tents so I can throw a frag at it when one of them logs in.

That would be worth filming.

The letters MMO were mentioned. Therefore shit.

I do not want skills trees, proper organised trading, leveling up, safe houses or any of that garbage. Only one man can be trusted to move the zombie survival genre in the right direction and that's Mr Dean Hall.

Hello! New Rig BING! ARMA Combined Ops bought BING!

I'm following this http://dayzwiki.com/...RMA2_Beta_patch

I'm stuck on the part where it asks me to install the Beta driver. I reach a site where I can download it http://www.arma2.com/beta-patch.php and it asks me for a user/password? I've tried older versions, no joy. Am I missing something? (A brain probably).

EDIT: I was being a tit, ignore me.
