    Wtf are you talking about?

    1. This isn't hatemachines thread.

    2. This thread has nothing to do with email spamming

    3. The best way to buy something is to look for a sales thread, not posting randomly on a forum that has hundreds of thousands of posts and hoping the seller will see it.

    4. If you can't find the sales thread, PM the seller. DON'T ask him/her to PM you, that's just being lazy.

    5. If you can't take the time to PM the seller then you probably don't have time to use the software and are just going to complain after you buy it because it doesn't do everything for you..... like make you breakfast.

    Never played it. Is it good?

    With the excessive never-ending list of charactreristic, I'll be waiting for the standalone. There are millions of bugs and anomalities, which all I can handle except one - the lag. I'm totally fine with playing 21 fps and roaming around, but for me, its usually around 14, and thats unplayable. My pc is far from good, so if standalone comes and its rlly good, I'm gonna buy a new comp. DayZ is the best survival game I think, I'm extremely suprised there are so few remakes of the game. Warz is meh, but like big corporate remakes.. They are missing out on some big bucks

    I checked out a couple videos shortly after I saw your post. The game looks pretty sweet but I'm going to stick with DayZ :D


    yeah, 14fps isn't going to do you any good inside a city or town. I usually get around 40-50 outside of the cities and then 30-40 when inside.

    I've thought about it, but I don't do that many videos. I guess I could start looking into video editing haha :D

    The only downside is that I don't have a sweet accent like frankie lol.

    If you're wondering who frankie is just go to youtube and type in " FRANKIEonPCin1080p " without quotes. That will bring you directly to his channel, or the results page where you can click through to his channel.

    Look for his DayZ videos.


    Yeah, getting killed is all part of the game :D

    Even the best players die frequently. You just have to learn the layout of the map and know where the sniper spots are in order to stay alive a little longer. There's also some little tricks that you need to learn in order to survive.


    lol, it took me a second to realize that "TRR" was me :D

    I'm not sure of the specs on the desktop I play on because I just jacked my roommates old computer from college and set it up in our back room haha. I'll ask him what the specs are but I'm sure that it isn't anything fancy since the computer is roughly 10 years old.

    But of course the better your video card the easier it is to be a bad ass in DayZ lol.

    I can't figure out how to get Day Z to work >_< I'll definitely play standalone though, so that's what I'm waiting for.

    Ugh, they just did a server rollback to about 12 hours prior. Normally I wouldn't care too much but in those 12 hours I had picked up Night Vision Goggles (very rare), a range finder (very rare), a GPS (rare), a coyote backpack (very rare), and an M40A3 with 6 clips (extremely rare)....... But now those are all gone :(

    Alright, got an update.

    There wasn't a rollback. For some reason the server is saving 2 forms of your character.

    The server resets itself every 6 hours so that means you can play a total of 12 hours on one character and 12 hours on another. I'm not sure why it's doing that. I've talked to a few people who regularly play on this server and they are not too happy with it.

    So it goes like this....

    Character 1: play for 6 hours then the server restarts and loads character 2.

    Character 2: play for 6 hours then the server restarts and loads character 1 again.

    Character 1: play for 6 hours then the server restarts and loads character 2 again.

    Character 2: play for 6 hours then the server restarts and loads character 1 again.....


    It's a vicious and annoying cycle.

    Let's say you're starting from scratch, just joined the game.

    You'll obviously start with the very basics such as a flash light, a bandage, and a drink. You're playing for 6 hours, pick up some good gear, then the server restarts. When you log back in you'll be at the starting point with the basics again and have to search for that good gear again. Now let's say you play for 6 more hours and find good gear again, but it's different. The server then restarts and you get spawned to wherever your first character was and he has all the same gear.

    It feels like a rollback but in reality the server is just saving 2 different characters. It's annoying but we will just have to deal with it in the meantime until the admin sorts it out. Hopefully my character with 3 NV goggles, a coyote pack, a bunch of guns, and multiple filled tents will be the character that gets saved :(


    I'm hoping this will be fixed in the next few days.

    I do jump on other servers. The only problem is that your tents and vehicles don't transfer over.

    Any gear you have on you will transfer over.

    The only reason I'm giving this server a chance is because it's one of the best servers I've ever played on. Not too many bandits and people don't just shoot you for your pack lol.

    yeah, it's pretty awesome lol.

    The standalone was already suppose to be out so it's impossible to tell how long we'll have to wait for it :(
