A while ago the server was logged on GameTracker for a few reasons

We’ve unregistered the server from there now for a few reasons

50 Slots again?

Well, it’s like trying to get the shower to be the right temperature

So I’m trying an experiment

Since snipping to 40 the server hasn’t really gone above 10 players which is too low, so let’s turn it back up to 50 to see if that’s an effect

See how it pans out

40 Slots?

When the server was started it was because I wanted a configuration I couldn’t find anywhere else.

I wanted public hive, because of the great, non-cliquey meetings it generates, really random encounters where you do not know what the outcome will be.

I wanted as minimal a HUD as I could make to help with immersion, just simply to enjoy the beauty of the game

I wanted 1PP because I beleive it not only gives the best immersive feel, but it also is more ‘real’, the 3PP camera manipulation for advantage is just ridiculous. I also love 1PP for the blinker effect, you can run right past people and not see them.

The server was always low slots, because there’s a balance in DayZ, I think you don’t want to always find people, you want to have time to relax into the game, have time to Explore and move around. For a meeting to not be a certainty. Post apocolyptic meetings should be few and far between, but be a real experience when they do happen.

DayZ had some bad times at the end of .59 and no one noticed. As .60 came in I was able to help my DayZ Bruddas get on a .60 Stable server, so the slots were maxed to 50 and the server has been visited by thousands of people. I’m very glad to have been able to furnish slots for people to play.

But a 50 slot server isn’t the game *I* want to play. Every time we play we meet someone. That meeting generally ends in a shootout. It’s lost it’s randomness. Every time you play, there’s a shootout. It’s not fun.

Over the last couple of days the frenzy of .60 has dissipated somewhat and the server isn’t maxed at peak times. Slots cost money. I’m paying to not play the game I want to play.

For these reasons, the server has been stepped down to 40 slots, to try and spread players out some. It may step down to 30 slots to spread players out even more.

If you’ve any thoughts on this, please let me know.

Maybe you don’t need an SSD for #DayZ

Running DayZ on an SSD is a Good Thing

Running DayZ on SHDDS is a Good Thing (but not as good as an SSD)

RAID 0ing drives to increase data throughput is a Good Thing

All that stuff is fun and much better than HDD rust spinners

There’s another way if you’ve got a load of RAM kicking about, bang DayZ in a RAMDisk

The first thing to do is to set up a RAMDisk, you’ll need it to be about 15Gig, so you’re machine really needs to be having a shedload of RAM in it to run the RAMDisk and the game (I’ve tried it at 28GG and 32GB with 15GB RAMDisks and it was fine)

According to tests I’ve seen this puppy is one of the fastest RAMDisks

https://www.softperfect.com/products/ramdisk/

You need to download it and install it and setup a 15Gb ish RAM drive
In all honesty I can’t help you too much here, I find it hard to setup, but it’s do-able
I find it hard because I don’t want it automounting on boot n that

Generally it’s kinda easy

 

 

Okay, then you need to move the game files onto it

YOU CANT JUST COPY THEM

You need to create a Junction for Steam to follow

A Junction is a bit like a pointer, you go to the old directory and the OS pretends all the moved files are still there

 

There’s a great program for moving files for Steam, surprisingly it’s called SteamMover, you can get it here:

http://www.traynier.com/software/steammover

 

It’ll move your game files into the RAMDisk (and back again if you need to)

 

If you cock with this and it kills you’re machine it’s not my fault, but it’s fun and makes a difference if you’ve got enough RAM

Cocking DayZ Processor Settings for smoother FPSes

Dayz is massively unoptimised right now and everything you can do to streamline your machine will increase Frames per Second and Graphics

Putting the game files on an SSD is good

Tweaking your DayZ Settings is also good

But optimising your processor can also make a difference

One of the best things to do is to park the DayZ process and then prioritise it using Process Lasso, click on the image to go download it

 

pl_boxshot_40

 

 

Once you’ve got it installed, set the profile to Gaming

2016-02-23_06-46-05

 

You could also think about maaybe (depending if your cooling is cool) permanently increasing the DayZ priority.

Run DayZ

ALT+Tab out of it

open Process Lasso and find the DayZ process and set it to Above Normal or something

 

2016-02-23_06-48-31

 

 

Additionally!

Remember to play with other things, if you run Kaspersky Anti Virus you might want to make sure this is set:

IMPORTANT: I really don’t know what I’m doing dicking with this stuff so if it breaks your computer it’s not my fault

Fixing DayZ Ingame Glitches with Flush

Saw this on reddit, haven’t tried it

 

I’ve found a few of the bugs introduced with the latest patches can be resolved by using the hidden flush command rather than doing a complete relog, such as:

-Unable to put items in hands

-Status indicators not displaying

-Sudden low FPS

 

To perform a flush:

-Press the LEFT Shift key + the NUMPAD Minus key together.

-Type flush

PvE (ish)

Our server is PvE (ish)

2016-01-30_08-36-57

There’s nothing ANYWHERE that can mind control players into being PvE or RP or PvP or even just lying in the road whistling Dixie for 19 hours

You do what you want
(except cheat, duping, glitching, scripting that kind of stuff (we’re DAST))

2016-01-30_08-38-13

I generally prefer PvE and so I’d like people to be a bit less PvP and a bit more PvE and maybe some RP
But it’s YOUR decision how you play
I can’t control you, and most of the time I can’t control me

2016-01-30_08-39-07

Welcome to DayZ
Make your choices

We got in a firefight last night
I’m not really sure what went down
There HAD to be another shooter on the grassy knoll
Logs are inconclusive

DVS got killed first I rolled back the logs some to see the build up

21:11:06 | “Syrphic HIT Sheepish by fist into head.”
21:11:06 | “Sheepish STATUS S::1832.64 B::5000 H::4998 HP::0.”
21:11:07 | “Sheepish HIT Syrphic by fist into Chest.”
21:11:07 | “Syrphic STATUS S::50 B::5000 H::4998 HP::0.”
21:15:31 | “Kantenholz SHOT [DVS] Kabocha by Fal into Chest.”
21:15:31 | “[DVS] Kabocha STATUS S::1500 B::3500 H::4380 HP::0.”
21:15:31 | “Kantenholz SHOT [DVS] Kabocha by Fal into Chest.”
21:15:31 | “[DVS] Kabocha STATUS S::2000 B::3000 H::4180 HP::0.”

[DVS] Kabocha (our guy) gets killed by Kantenholz FAL shots
21:15:31 | Player “[DVS] Kabocha” has been killed by player “Kantenholz”

Why is Kantenholz unconscious in this next line?
There’s nothing in the logs

21:18:53 | “Player Kantenholz has fallen into unconsciousness.”

This next line is the first thing that hurt Kantenholz
A ‘Hard Hit’ with no source
Don’t know what that is
21:18:53 | “Kantenholz has fallen into unconsciousness. HARD HIT Total S::7042.22”

I see a guy running, think it’s the guy that shot [DVS] Kabocha and take pots

21:18:55 | “[DVS] Spaggie SHOT Syrphic by Mosin9130_Green_Black into RightArm.”
21:18:55 | “Syrphic STATUS S::500 B::4500 H::4800 HP::0.”
21:18:55 | “[DVS] Spaggie SHOT Syrphic by Mosin9130_Green_Black into RightArm.”
21:18:55 | “Syrphic STATUS S::1000 B::4000 H::4600 HP::0.”
21:18:55 | “[DVS] Spaggie SHOT Syrphic by Mosin9130_Green_Black into RightArm.”
21:18:55 | “Syrphic STATUS S::1500 B::3500 H::4400 HP::0.”
21:18:55 | “[DVS] Spaggie SHOT Syrphic by Mosin9130_Green_Black into RightArm.”
21:18:55 | “Syrphic STATUS S::2000 B::3000 H::4200 HP::0.”
21:18:57 | “Syrphic STARTS BLEEDING.”

Then I see Kantenholz and think I’m getting clanned so take a pot

21:20:09 | “[DVS] Spaggie SHOT Kantenholz by Mosin9130_Green_Black into LeftArm.”

They’re both lying and bleeding for a bit

21:20:09 | “Kantenholz STATUS S::3460 B::3535 H::4340 HP::0.”
21:20:09 | “Kantenholz SHOT Syrphic by MP5K into LeftArm.”
21:20:09 | “Syrphic STATUS S::520 B::1252 H::4000 HP::0.”
21:20:10 | “Kantenholz SHOT Syrphic by MP5K into RightArm.”
21:20:10 | “Syrphic STATUS S::960 B::703 H::3800 HP::0.”
21:20:10 | “Kantenholz SHOT Syrphic by MP5K into RightArm.”
21:20:10 | “Syrphic STATUS S::1460 B::203 H::3600 HP::0.”
21:20:11 | “Kantenholz STARTS BLEEDING.”
21:20:11 | “Player Kantenholz has fallen into unconsciousness.”
21:20:12 | “Player Syrphic has fallen into unconsciousness.”
21:20:17 | “Syrphic DIED Blood <= 0”
21:22:29 | “Kantenholz STOPS BLEEDING.”

One dies, one prones behind a wall
I run in to see wtf
And get killed

21:22:59 | “Kantenholz SHOT [DVS] Spaggie by MP5K into LeftArm.”
21:22:59 | “[DVS] Spaggie STATUS S::500 B::4500 H::4765.13 HP::0.”
21:22:59 | “Kantenholz SHOT [DVS] Spaggie by MP5K into LeftArm.”
21:22:59 | “[DVS] Spaggie STATUS S::1000 B::4000 H::4565.13 HP::0.”
21:22:59 | “Kantenholz SHOT [DVS] Spaggie by MP5K into LeftArm.”
21:22:59 | “[DVS] Spaggie STATUS S::1500 B::3500 H::4365.13 HP::0.”
21:22:59 | “Kantenholz SHOT [DVS] Spaggie by MP5K into LeftArm.”
21:22:59 | “[DVS] Spaggie STATUS S::2000 B::3000 H::4165.13 HP::0.”
21:22:59 | “Kantenholz SHOT [DVS] Spaggie by MP5K into Chest.”
21:22:59 | “[DVS] Spaggie STATUS S::3500 B::1500 H::3565.13 HP::0.”
21:22:59 | Player “[DVS] Spaggie” has been killed by player “Kantenholz”

 

 

That’s that really
What a mess

 

Love you guys but there’s no point moaning at me on TS though tbf

I pulled the shot, but man he cut it close
We’d been circling him for about 10 minutes trying to chat

A couple of times he had me cold and aiming on the build up
