Anyone else fancy giving this a try? It's Arma 2 based but has such advanced tech as working gunshot sounds and the ability to shoot people through bushes/trees!

It's also a lot more PVP focused and tends to be played by lots of squads so could make for interesting action.

There are only a couple of servers (and only 1 hardcore one), but they have a very active admin team so it's pretty rare to ever see a hacker and anyone caught stream sniping gets banned.

To play you need to setup the following:

  1. Install Arma 2.
  2. Install Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead.
  3. Set Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead to the Beta branch in steam.
  4. Go to https://zombies.nu/ and signup on their forums and download the launcher.
  5. Run Arma 2: OA once to create a profile.
  6. Open the DayZero launcher and in the settings tab copy the GUID to your zombies.nu forum account (they whitelist players so everyone on the server also has a forum account linked to their copy of Arma).
  7. Start installing the mod through the launcher, if you click on the Versions menu it should confirm that Arma 2, OA and once installed, DayZero are all up to date.

Thats ok, if enough people can get breakingpoint working we can always try that instead, I just don't want us all to get burnt out and frustrated with DayZ again and figure trying some alternatives *before* we get totally pissed with SA might be worth a go.

The Steam halloween sale is coming up soon so maybe arma 2 will go on sale then, if it's cheap it might be worth grabbing just as an alternative sometime.

I told myself, you have 1 character left and if that one dies aswell then it's time for a break.
So I am gonna give it one last try if anyone else if up for it but otherwise I am just taking a break till a newer and more stabler version is up (I guess experimental is as bad as the stable ?).
I don't have Arma and it's too much to buy right now, I might get it when it's on Steam sale again.

If anyone is in Norway (or can figure out how to make steam give them Norwegian prices), there is currently a nice pricing error on Arma 3 where it is available for 44NOK (or about £4).

Yeah, the Task Force Radio plugin is pretty awesome as it routes the ingame voice to teamspeak and adds in proper radio effects, channels, frequencies and ranges so in larger setups you actually need a a dedicated radioman with a long range radio to communicate between squads.

It takes a while to get setup and working but is worth it, last night was a bit so-so with the squad vs squad as we've never done it before but saturday was awesome with 20+ of us in 3 squads pushing through the map vs the AI, so tense in places (that first IED was crazy as noone expected it), can't believe we all stayed on and played for 6 hours to make it through the mission to the evac point.
