Gutrug's Guide To A Zombie Apocalypse

TRUST NO ONE

like it says dont trust no one. Since the change to how people look, you are no longer able to tell who is friendly and who is not. Its not as if everyone isn't friendly, most people just panic and shoot just for looking at them. which brings me to friends, THEY are not to be Trusted either. friends in the zombie apocalypse will forget what you look like and where you are whilst concentrating on the zombies around them. again panic and shooting at your head :/

GLITCHES AND FRIENDS

If your friend cannot see the car you get in, leave him behind. hes completely useless and is more likely to see glitches of your self panic and shoot you in the head. or better still shoot him in the head so nothing bad can happen to you. Large swinging doors are also a big problem closing one on a friend or him closing on yourself can glitch into you causing you to break bones, excessive bleeding or even worse death. my suggestion is one by one.

VEHICLES

4 Wheels and a Tank with petrol in dose not make it safe to drive. one stupid hit and BOOM! at least make all parts of it orange. If you have a car make your friends come to you, fuck the zombies you want to be as far away as possible from any form of life/dead. if they have a hoard chasing them leave them, turn around and drive away looking into the wing mirror watching his panting face run in fear! Though buses our fun too party in, they are slow and big and attract the attention of every prick out there be careful of who you pick up.




this guide will be updated with each death i have!

Right go to here and download the latest Beta Patch for Arma 2 http://www.arma2.com/beta-patch.php

Once downloaded, install clicking the installer, go to your game dir

Should be something like this

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead\Expansion\beta\arma2oa.exe"

Click the exe to load up dayz from now on until the patch is updated. This seems to sort out server issues. I server hopped last night with absolutely no problems at all and on EU servers too

maplib.net was down. that's the same image, just a picture rather than the proper interface

Edit:

Also not sure about doing the beta install that way skin, you should be running the _run_A2CO_beta.cmd in your ARMA directory, not the executable directly. Instructions in the top post are the officially supported way to do it

Was reading the wiki and saw this

To refill the can you must find a large fuel cylinder normally found within a few meters of a gas pump. The individual pumps themselves serve no purpose. Some gas stations do not have these large fuel tanks but are still marked on the map, so it's a good idea to scout ahead first and know which station you're going to. There are also many locations on the map where these tanks can be found that are not gas stations.

If it means those white horizontal tanks you often see in populated areas then that could be interesting

Yeah, I refuelled last night. They are either white or Brown cylinders next to the pump stations and sometimes at farms.
