Played for a couple or hours, got to say its great fun, love the scavenging picking up cool items in all these abandoned houses and other places, even saw some players kill each other for their items which i though was a tad harsh! One thing i noticed was the only time i died, when i re-spawned it was in the middle of nowhere, like off the map.

Great work, anyways thanks again.

Automatic Respawn currently has some issues. If you go to the lobby and come back in when you die, then it will work okay :)

ArmA2 needs to be connected to a standalone application and database in order to run a DayZ server.

It's a total conversion for ArmA. A "lite" version will be released later that will allow the elements to be used separately. When you play it once, you'll realise why it needs a specialist server setup, and why ACE is not necessary nor could it be integrated very easily.

Can't wait to see what the future brings for this mod, also why I'm hosting the two eu servers for the mod currently :P

It works very well with Project Reality, where the mod is restricted to minimal servers.

IF YOU WANT TO SUPPORT THIS MOD: BUY PMC AND CARRIER COMMAND FROM THE BI STORE!... NOW!!!

I would like to know what this exactly means. Just a PR gag or if not, what kind of support does the mod get if people buy PMC or CC ?

You'll see, it is to much fun when you find another people needing help or they find you when you need, trading with unknown people, man, I'm loving this mod.

Good trailer Rocket, you guys are doing an awesome work. Thanks from me and my friends for your dedication on this mod.

I'm assuming it's because Rocket works for BIS and he's paid by BIS. So buying products from his employer technically pays his salary? I dunno, I'm just spitballing here :)

I only find Zombies under civilian Chernarus and a BAF soldier whose name is Rocket under OPFOR in editor, but can't figure out how to make zombies chasing me and attacking me. Is this mod not available for single editing?

Buying BI products actually is supporting BI developers make better mods.

Btw, does it mean I can't experience this mod in editor without buying PMC DLC?

That's why I'm asking. The mod is using at least one other 3rd party mod which does not allow this by its license :)
