Going through and reinstalling now. Thanks for this short-list. I'll be updating Arma2 tonight and then installing OA.

Had a rather good run last night as I'd not played in a while.

Now is it just me or are the zombies a lot more "random"? Most of the zombies were rather useless/docile and didn't see me (granted I was playing at game time 8pm, so it was dark) - but then in others some of the Zombies would see you from miles away?

Anyway - I found a deer hunting spot and inside was the AK with a scope (Kobra?) and yeah, that was nice, not too loud and you could easily take zombies down.

I made my way to Electro approaching from the north - I stopped to investigate the electrical plant. Inside there were loads of AK's - now this is where a bug kicked in and p!ssed me off.

I clicked an AKM on the ground to give it a try vs the AK Kobra thinking it'd just leave the Kobra on the ground in its place - WRONG. It disappeared and took all the ammo I had for it too - and so now I have a big bad gun with no scope and no ammo.

Then a glitch and I fell off the rooftop.

Not good.

lol

I've been watching the 30 part guide by laststandgamers. For the most part i did well. Just running into survivors hurt me.

Did that hacker video not seem freaky.

Once the standalone releases I will play with you guys. I just hope my 1st Gen Quad core machine can hang haha. I have done so many builds the past few years but never had the need to make an iSeries desktop since the Q6700 has been running fine. I think I am going to replace my 4 ram sticks with 2gb modules however since they are WAY cheaper now than when I first built this thing. The 4gb will just get added to my home media server that I am in the process of setting up on Amahi.

well, if it makes you feel any better, i'm running a e8600 - dual core with a gtx 470, and the game runs fantastic on high setting with 1920x1200 resolution.

btw, you may be waiting quite a while for the stand alone.

Closest thing i've found to a gun was a hunting knife

Update

I saw you on last night Bob, only issue was you don't have a mic?!

At least I'm mostly ready to meet up with everyone this weekend if we're really doing this. I do still need food and water though.

I was just online... I didn't see or hear you. I'm hanging out at the airfield just north of you.

Oh while playing a day or so ago, I came across a survivor in a supermarket. He had an alice pack and a hatchet (a very underrated weapon i might add) I'm standing there with the starting backpack and an AKM. The conversation went like this:

him: FRIENDLY!
me: I'm just starting too, nice bag. you get it here? is there another one?
him: only one I saw, my old one is in the back room.
me: that's a shame.
him: you ****.
*POW* *POW* *POW* *POW* *POW*

US311, the one that Urban has been running.

Lee Enfield is a good one I believe? I think it's one of the quieter rifles out there?

The Enfield is EXTREMELY loud, has a low clip count (10), and its rate of fire is slow.

HOWEVER... it is very deadly and accurate.

Must have been thinking something else then. I think what I picked up last night was an AKM, but not positive.
