  • How to: Current DayZ installation Manual

    Well if you having issues with getting the right version here is the manual install.

    Get the latest version of DayZ
    DayZ Mod is the torrent file for it (their prefered method)

    Create a folder in \arma 2 operation arrowhead\
    called @DayZ
    Create a sub folder \addons
    Paste the contents of the torrent into this directory.
    IE C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead\@DayZ\addons

    Get the current Version of BETA OA
    Beta patch
    Current version

    If OA is normally installed the patch should run fine. Now you need to copy the Exe from the
    \arma 2 operation arrowhead\Expansion\beta\arma2oa.exe
    to the root folder
    \arma 2 operation arrowhead\

    Copy and replace - you should preserve the old exe incase it breaks.

    You should be able to launch OA now through the EXE and change to the @DayZ Mod ingame. Can use the ingame browser also.

    Last night I was getting a few kicks with wrong file verifications and whatnot. Not sure why but after changing servers it was fine. Otherwise if you dont run OA all the time you may need to update BattleEye Anti Cheat. After on a server for 5 min the app should shutdown and update itself re-join and should be working fine.
