It ends in 5 hours, 45 minutes as of this post.

If you miss it there might a sale on the last day of their best sellers, no doubt ARMA will be there.

Like I said, go get DayZ Commander it's the best way to make sure you're all up to date. There's some extra tweaking to be done since you have the Steam version, it's all in the options somewhere on DayZ Commander, just a couple boxes to check, then restart Steam as an Admin as well as Commander. Once that's done, use Commander to update the mods you want, it already has the list of them, you want DayZ Epoch, and of course the base game.

Before actually playing DayZ you need to open and run ARMA and Op Arrow head once first, otherwise it'll give you errors and kick you. After that go to Commander and find a DayZ server and proceed to do gross things to zombies. Some servers have day/night cycles, some are always day or night, the server we play on has a day/night cycle so right now it's dark and in ARMA, dark is DARK, like Wesley Snipes playing "Guess Who?" with you.

The more the merrier. Just remember, it's got a steep learning curve so don't expect to pop in there and be King Shit of Fuck Mountain. You're probably gonna be a chambermaid for a while. The one with a lazy eye and club foot. Just learning the basics is a beast, forget about combat. My first kill was panicky luck.

We were scaving in this town when some guy sneaks up and brains my cousin as he's sitting in his SUV, Nala and I return fire but he's a wiggly one, laying prone. He manages to take out Nala but I went around the other side and proceeded to empty all three of my .45 mags into him and he still wasn't dead. So I turn and ran off, taking one of our cars. None of my shots were immediately fatal, but he either didn't have enough bandages or he was bleeding too much because it took him a minute to bleed out and die. I was well down the road when the combat log notified us that I killed him.

Well I expect nothing. Last time I was even close to decent at a game was counter strike. The original one like in 2001. You know when the cool kids had cable Internet at 1mbps/sec and we bought a router so we could drag our computers over for a lan party....

I stupidly fired modern war 3 the other day for my first online play. Owned was a nice way to describe my play...

If we meet up the best I can promise is to be the distraction that takes fire while you do the killing. That and suppressing fire.....

The thing is, it's not a shooter like other shooters. It's a work simulator basically. Just long periods of nothing going on, but the stress of knowing that at any time a band of better equipped and organized survivors could roll up on you in a convoy of blacked out, armored Chevys with miniguns on the top and just ruin all your hard work. Or a lone sniper could take you out. Maybe you just run into another guy who's just started and doesn't know what he's doing and hasn't got anything to lose. And maybe all those people are actually friendly and you team up or trade.

I likely wont be there then, but add me on Steam, I'm airsoft_guy, maybe get you introduced to some of the other nerds, help you get started.

Do you have Mumble and a headset? Those will be incredibly important to any sort of coordination. Our Mumble server went down for a few minutes earlier tonight and it was like being struck dumb, all we could do was type at each other, but that's no good when you're driving and one of you is using the map to find a route to the trade city. Communication is essential for coordination as well as me yelling at you. Not because I'm mad, it's just how I communicate. Loudly, with lots of swearing. Thanks, dad. And grandpa. And most of the other male role models in my life.

You ragequit prom night? Impressive.

Yes I played DayZ the mod. I quit because people only played to PvP, not to survive. The main reason I think people did this is that once you're fully geared up, there is absolutely nothing to do, so you just go kill people until someone one shots you in the side of the head with a sniper rifle. That cycle eventually got really old no matter which version of DayZ I was playing, so I quit.

Last month the standalone version of the game came out and I got that, and since it's a pre-alpha version, it's even worse. There's even less to do than in any of the mod versions. I made a couple of videos on it, and now I'm just gonna quit until the SA version is MUCH more fleshed out.

But I doubt anything will ever change about it. The call of duty pvp crowd invaded the game and it's never been the same since.

But hey, at least you can proper rob people now:

I pre-ragequit prom.

I would think DayZ would be too advanced for your average Cowadoody douche, there's not even any dope or sick or poppin' fresh paints for your guns. I could see where things might get real boring once you get up there, it's pretty fun in the beginning, just the three of us skittering around, scaving for gear hoping those douches in the up-armored Chevys don't show up. Our plan to keep things interesting is to be a bipolar gang. One day we roll up and rob you blind and then the next we're Santa giving you guns and beanie weenies.

I see in the video you've got a bayonet, can you actually use it? That part really upsets me about the mod, there doesn't seem to be a melee option for the guns, even though most of them make excellent clubs. I've got a No.4 Enfield, if I run out of ammo with it I doubt I'd have much trouble beating a man to death with it. So right now if I want a ranged weapon it's gotta be a pistol because I'm sporting a hatchet or crowbar in my main slot.

You can detach the bayonet and use it as a knife. The only bonus is that it doesn't take an inventory slot since it's attached to your gun.

Unfortunate. Can the knife/bayonet be used as a weapon or is it just a tool?

Toooooollllllll joooooooooooooo. The mouse scroll is your main tool for interacting with the world, doors, vehicles, gear laying around, selecting your main and secondary. "G" is the default inventory key, G for Gear.
