So do you still get to build your own type of ships? I only played one of these games and I can't remember which one. The gameplay for this one looks a tad complicated.

I really want to see what type of stuff shows up on the RMAH. I have no problem finding cheap items on the regular AH. I'm only in nightmare though. Anyone know how much inferno gear goes for on the regular AH?

If it's the one in the picture, it looks like it'd be very noticeable. I had a pair of virtual headsets many years ago due to a friend working for a company selling them. Best use was 3D porn.

Ok, watched the whole thing. I really like most of the facial animations, although the lips don't seem to move enough. Feels a bit off. The other stuff was cool looking. Really picked up outside the club. I wonder how much of the traffic light was scripted. Seems like he caused a lot of innocent casualties.

I wonder if this one will have a system to bind keys. My guess is no and that it'll be a shitty port like the last one.

Same here. I put 2 hours in to it according to Steam. Just seemed overly complicated. And a shitton of walking through vast empty areas to get anywhere.

The story is really interesting & the grapics are REALLY good.

We must have played different games. I thought the graphics were shit. I take that back, the scenery was great. The character animations and such were pure garbage though.

And with so many accounts they most likely are coming from the same IP area which should set off warning bells when a few hundred accounts suddenly all stop logging in from their last known IP and suddenly are logging in from the same IP area, which the same computer specs that doesn't match their last known configuration (something the warden program is supposed to look at)

They do check, from above:

We also have other measures built into Battle.net to help protect players. Occasionally, when Battle.net detects unusual login activity that differs from your normal behavior -- such as logging in from an unfamiliar location -- we may prompt you for additional information (such as the answer to one of your security questions)

I get the authenticator popup if I try to use a different computer than normal to login (I get it on my main computer about once a month).

News Comments > New DayZ Mod
22. Re: New DayZ Mod May 22, 2012, 17:34 Frijoles
 
Adding body temperature seems lame. There's a point where gameplay starts to suffer because of realism. I haven't tried it though, so maybe it won't be so bad. The development feels a bit Minecraft-ish. Release something cool, and then move on to the next without refining what we already have.

I logged in a few nights ago and it was pitch black in the game. I ended up logging out because I couldn't see worth shit. I'm hoping there's some sort of moon cycle in the game and that's why I couldn't see. If not, and nights are now that dark, fuck it. I'll play D3 until it's fixed.

Long story short- this game is going to need siege mode if it is to have a longer-term appeal.

Having never played T1 and vague memories of T2, what's siege mode?

News Comments > DayZ Modification for Arma II
14. Re: DayZ Modification for Arma II May 16, 2012, 11:45 Frijoles
 
So to get this working on Win 7 64 was a bitch. Took me about two hours. Here's the steps I took to finally get it to work:

1) Set Steam to run in compatibility mode (I used XP SP3). Don't worry, this will get set back.
2) Launch steam in admin mode.
3) Run Arma II base game. If you get an error about license key, it's not writing the registry key. Make sure you're in admin mode and compatibility mode.
4) Run Operation Arrowhead. Same deal. You want it to launch with no key issues or anything else it complains about.

At this point, you could open up regedit and go to the wow6432node. You should see an entry or two for Bohemia. You can try to launch Combined Operations now. If you get any errors, delete the Bohemia entries in the registry and try again.

After you get it working, you can turn off compatibility mode and not launch as admin. Getting DayZ itself to run is pretty easy after that if you use the video guidelines (I think they were posted above).

Edit: Video of how to do the install of DayZ itself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ib73cBf_-Ys

Banking on Diablo 3 returns and having depressed gamers buy GoT on the rebound?

Is there anywhere that still takes a PC return, especially one that has a key tied to an online service? I can't think of any.

BTW: I think I read that the whole zombies (AI) running through walls is a limitation of the game engine and can't be fixed. Is that true?

Last night I cleared out a larger building of zombies. In the process, some from outside ran to the side of the building and were able to hit me while I was standing against the wall. They didn't walk through the wall, but they definitely could swing through it. I took a step forward and they stopped hitting me. However, they were not smart enough to find the door.

Don't get me wrong, DayZ is buggy and not intuitive to use. It's still alpha, and since I've never played ArmaII, I don't know what is buggy due to the mod and buggy due to the game. The backpack inventory system is pure shit to use. Mobs (and animals you can find for food) can get stuck in the ground. Moving the mouse feels weird. Turning up gamma and brightness at night so you can see doesn't help much (but does make you feel like you're on drugs).

Even with the issues, I found it to have a lot of immersion. Running around the mountains at night with a pistol low on ammo and not being able to see shit was really fun. Especially since it throws in random sounds. I really want to find some other non-bandit players though so I can experience the team aspect of it.

Worth $30? Dunno yet. Worth a Steam sale of $10? Definitely.
