This game is so much fun!!! i've been playing about a month, maybe longer... i'd consider myself to no longer be a noob at the game. the BEST part about the whole game isn't the game itself... it's all the awesome stories that spawn from the game.
playing the other day... me and my friend were in the firestation in cherno (with a friend on the hill outside cherno) and a guy started shooting at us... from the top of the large buildings... turns out he had a buddy up there... and 2 others on the ground... so 4 total... My friend ran out of the firestation and killed one of the ground guys, I ran out and killed one of the guys on the tower with an enfield... then died from the other guy on the ground... then my buddy on the hill killed the other guy on the tower. Then when I re-spawned, I ran up there to try and loot their bodies and the guy who shot me was up there watching their stuff and shot at me but luckily I ran off the edge and killed myself! good times.
Watch this first:
Then read this:
one of the guys I play with was the guy with the bike... f'n hilarious!

I've got everything set up and working. I played for a few hours today,mostly crawling around. Towns seem to be mostly useless but I eventually found a castle with a gun inside.
I need a handy guide of good places to get supplies.
Not sure how we could play together, I guess just pick out a server?
I got it on Steam sale, so I only played for an hour or two until I got sniped by a guy I never saw.

^^ Yeah use SixUpdater, easy stuff.
I'm camped somewhere in Elektro, I hung out there for a good couple of hours gathering supplies and looking for survivors. Never saw anyone.
I've been using the Reddit Dayz Servers as they seem to be the most reliable.
Spawned in the SW corner of the map last night. Found a double barrel shotgun, but I only have one shell left. Wasted the other shell on a zombie because I was careless/excited after finding the gun.
I'm just NE of Komarovo. I'll make my way towards Electro, then we can team up on a server. I need to find a water canteen or something.
Yep, mine works now. I got on two nights ago and it worked just fine. Played with a group of guys from our Reddit "World of Tanks" clan.
This game is soooo much better when you play with squad of 4-5 people.
Can't wait til it goes stand alone on the Arma III engine.
Do you use DayZ Commander? It supports friend lists, which would make it easier for us to play together whenever.

I'm going to have to take back what I said earlier, I think I'm going to check this game out after all. I've been watching a bunch of Youtube videos and what not lately. I also just got a new gaming rig (well, that's what I'm calling it anyway) and will now be able to play PC games again. Once I get it up and running, I think I'm downloading this first. But if I start getting powned right out off the bat, I may go back to what I said earlier
So here's a question though - when you start the game, my understanding is you basically have nothing. Once you start finding stuff and get yourself kitted out, do those items stay with you when you get killed? Or do you respawn back at zero with nothing? For those that have been playing, assuming you are a reasonably average player, do you find yourself being able to get in and out of the game at will without getting killed? Or is it like any other FPS type game where you get killed regularly? I know that could be seen as a dumb question, but I saw a lot of videos with people with tents and other things set up. Is it set up so that if you are good enough, you can essentially set up a base and run around indefinitely until you get killed? Or is it a brand new game every time you boot up?
It is a bit more tedious to get it up and running than I expected.
But I am a long time console gamer.
You start with some bandages and cans of beans.
The zombies are not very perceptual aware except when really really close of if they hear a loud bang (gun).
The other survivors are more dangerous than the zombies.
I started playing last night and had some graphical glitches so I didn't play long. Turns out leaving all the video settings at how it defaults resolved that issue. Keep that in mind.
Anyway- I just ****ing (unnecessarily) crawled across a valley and road and was up to a door of a house (looking for weapons) and bam! game over. A survivor hiding in the house killed me with a point blank head shot... but admittedly I was so focused on all the zombies around the house I did not even look at the chat lines. He/she may have been asking if I was friend of foe. If you don't answer in ten seconds- most will shoot you.
But back to what I was asking, if you have all sorts of gear and are killed, do you start over with all of it again or are you basically back to zero?
