We're now running 1.7.2.5 on 95883 on a fresh virgin server, so get updating bitches!

[Edit: old server is still on port 2302, new server is on port 2304]

Might be on a bit later if I get chance. There was a bit of "server rollback" of some sort, so I lost my previous character. Ended up playing some midnight supermarket sweep in Chenro with a fresh one, got myself a nice beans'n'pepsi dinner combo.

It was pitch black at that point, and pissing down, logged off in an upstairs room somewhere near the fire station. Midnight shopping has its plus points - walking down the street without too much danger of being seen, for example. Can't navigate worth a toss though.

Playing on a quiet server that isn't full of dipshits is quite a different experience from the 40min queues (and monumental rubber-banding) I was accustomed to. I do miss the random player encounter aspects of pub servers ever so slightly, but a private server does have other (not inconsiderable) benefits. DayLOL holds much promise.

Shopping trip ended badly. 3k blood after a shit attempt at sneaking into the hospital. Decided to take the short route off the roof after passing out for the 19th time. It's weird how quickly your confidence grows, and then leaves in fraction of the time.

Respawned near the lighthouse SE of Cherno, hoofed it across the marshland to pick up one of the bikes from the wee peninsula hilltop. Did a full tour of the coast heading east via all the major towns until I hit Berezino to the North East. I then did a bit of off-road pedalling until I was on the outskirts of Krasnostav. After a quick circuit around the airfield, I dumped the bike just to the north of the old control tower, and logged off while hiding on the roof like a total wet wipe.

A pretty nice evening for a cycle mind you. Got a few miles in.

I need a compass or something. Fairly fruitful night though, 3 helicopter crash sites and a full raid of the northwest airfield. Found a weapon with a nv + ir scope on it, and in my backpack I made room for an AS50 sniper rifle (no ammo). Found a quad bike on a road, engine was fucked and I haven't found a toolbox. Ended up logging out on a hill overlooking Petrovka in the middle of nowhere after running in circles for hours.

The car in the hanger is alive again, but it wouldn't budge. Engine started so I think has just attached itself to the wall :p

Will try the updated one tomorrow or over the weekend sometime.

Played on the newer server and found a jerrycan, wheel and then an ATV all within 5 mins of spawning, bestspawnever! Fixed her up, drove over a few zombies then a got beaten by a godamn bridge. Honestly, a bridge should NOT flip your brand new zombie-running-over sexy ATV. FUCK YOU BRIDGE. Someone find a car or bus and gently knock it upright please.

No point in playing on the older server guys, the fixes in 1.7.2.5 definitely make it worth losing all your gear :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:DDD

I'll be on later tonight, I need loot

You guys must have been on pretty late, I was seriously Billy-no-mates earlier in the evening on the newer version.

Manic bicycle ride kind of made up for it, only just beginning to get my head round the ker-azy inventory system but alas still not found a boom stick.

scary, since I died last, I moved over to the new server, so has LSM and teeks.

Teeks can't play late GMT, because he lives somewhere stupid 3 hours east of GMT.

I just joined after you left LSM ! :/

scary, I know you found lots of stuff, but if you move to new server, you do start with 2 bandages !!!

I was surprised at how erect the bikes remain once I had demounted myself. Upright bikes give me the horn.

Does it have a basket for inventory? Any improvements on the bell?

I've updated day z and the arma 2 beta patch to the latest but fuck knows when I'll be on (or if it'll work, didn't launch it). Will try to stop work earlier than like 9-10 but no guarantees!

On my Steam installation I had to run the anti-cheat installer again, then ARMA2 then the DLC (whatever that's called, I forget) then finally DayZ started with no missing file errors. It's all very archaic but well worth all the dicking about. Excellent mod.

Avoid bridges when on bikes/ATVs.

Mine's still on its side, bastard thing.

I was jumping a couple of bridges but mainly railway lines like a twat. I think I got lucky that my bad boy didn't get stuck then.

not sure what the fuck happened but applied Cackers patch and now I'm on .95248!!!! I've gone backwards.

Well got past that now stuck at "requesting character data" I hit enter and it asked me if id like to restart the mission??!!!!

Might reinstall dayz as it might bea bit FUBAR with all the messing around ive done.

fixed

Reapplied Arma II patch
Checked the Ao exe in Operation arrowhead folder which was version .95248 so I copied the one in the beta folder and replaced it which was the patched version.
Logged in and got stuck at "retrieving character database" so I then recopied the Dayz patch into the @dayz/Addons folder and working perfectly now.

I'm getting the dreaded red link on Cacks server atm. Dunno if anyone else is having the same probs.

Might dabble with some TF2. Haven't touched it for a year or more.
