  1. I got DayZlauncher and I find a server, assign the Arma2 and click on it. It tells me which mods I need to download, so I do it (DayZ, Epoch and Overwatch). Not ethat I had these installed for like 2 years, so I only needed to update them. Click play on teh server after tehy're done only to get: Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead is attempting to launch with the optional parameters shown below. " -connect=172.106.106.33 -port=mod=C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\SteamApps\Common\ArmA 2;Expansions;C:\Users\Ziggah\Documents\mods\@DayZ_Epoch" " If you did not request this launch or do not understand this options, select Cancel. Note, my arma 2 and arma 2 OA location is on D drive. I click ok. I get the "battleEye is installing thingey. I get it every time". I get another error message after that. a window titles "Arma 2 Army of the Czech republic Se..." with the message " !!! MISSING STRING" Have no clue what AotCR has anything to do with dayz so I click okay. After this I get a window titled "arma2 OA" with the message "Addon 'sauerland' requers addon 'Chernarus'" Again, I have no clue why I need an addon which is a part of the default game, so I click okay. I get the DayZ Epoch screen, you know it, the black one. After a while, bout half a minute I get: "No entry bin/congfig.bin/CfgVehicles/Land_Company3_2.scope" Then it fianlly, crashes with one last error, a window titled "Arma 2 OA" with the message "cannot load world 'ca\chernarus\chernarus.wrp'" Also, if it helps, my Mods/download path in dayzlauncher is "C:\Users\Ziggah\Documents\mods" I know I could google this, but such a huge batch with these specific combination of erros seems only specific to me. Or alteast no one asked on the internet yet and gave up on ever playing the game. Which I am close to. Can someone help me fix this errorfest of a game, please. I have about 1200 hours in epoch and I really wanna play it again. Seriously. I fix one error, BAM, now you got 2 more.

  3. Hi, I've recently tried to edit the spawn select mod and everytime a player dies, I get the message displayed twice Bob was Killed Bob was killed. When the player respawns the spawn select isn't there and I spawn into worldspace with the same items as when I died and 2 of my old bodies on the floor. Any help would be appreciated. arma2oaserver.RPT : if (isServer) > 16:01:43 Error Undefined variable in expression: dze_deployables_config 16:01:43 File mpmissions\DayZ_Epoch_11.Chernarus\addons\bike\init.sqf, line 35 16:01:43 "Loading custom server compiles" 16:01:44 "HIVE: Starting" 16:01:44 ["TIME SYNC: Local Time set to:",[2012,8,2,13,1],"Fullmoon:",true,"Date given by HiveExt.dll:",[2017,5,25,13,1]] 16:01:44 "HIVE: trying to get objects" 16:01:44 "HIVE: found 6 objects" 16:01:44 "HIVE: Request sent" 16:01:44 "HIVE: Streamed 6 objects" 16:01:44 "Res3tting B!S effects..." 16:01:44 "HIVE: BENCHMARK - Server_monitor.sqf finished streaming 6 objects in 0.169983 seconds (unscheduled)" 16:01:44 "Total Number of spawn locations 6" 16:01:44 "[DZAI] Initializing DZAI version 2.2.1 Release Build 20141208 using base path z\addons\dayz_server\DZAI." 16:01:44 "[DZAI] Reading DZAI configuration file." 16:01:44 "[DZAI] DZAI configuration file loaded." 16:01:44 "[DZAI] Compiling DZAI functions." 16:01:44 "[DZAI] DZAI functions compiled." 16:01:45 "[DZAI] Epoch classnames loaded." 16:01:45 "[DZAI] DZAI settings: Debug Level: 0.

  7. Hello im trying to setup a dayz overpoch server with taviana.

My question is, can someone send me the valid keys for the latest Taviana dayz mod? Or if you know what im dealing with please help me. Thanks
  8. Hey all, This is NOT my fix and i do NOT take any credit for it. I forgot who told me about it, but I wanted to share it with you guys so hopefully it helps someone who was having the same problems i was. If you're using PBO manager like me, You may have noticed that after you repack your server pbo and try to run it, your gsme wont load or you'll be stuck at wait for host. The probem is that after you repack your server PBO, PBO manager isn't adding the prefixes from the original PBO to the new PBO, To fox this it's simple, Repack your pbo after your done editing it. Double click the PBO so it opens it up in PBO msnsger. Don't extract it. Click the PBO once, to highlithgt it. Click the blue gear icon about your PBO. Right click, and add the require prefixes. They're usually mikero///////Depbo.dll pboprefix\\\\\\\\ z\addons\dayz_server prefix\\\\\\\\\\ z\addons\dayz_server Hope this helps!

  13. Found that happening in some cases on vanillla 0.3.8 19:05:22 Scripting function 'bis_fnc_execvm' is not allowed to be remotely executed Its only used to initPlayerServer.sqf execution, but still want to know if its global issue, or local for me.
  14. Hello Community, today i updated the Server to the 0.3.8.0 and now i have this error: Warning Message: Script \x\addons\a3_epoch_code\init\fn_init.sqf not found I tryed a fresh Installation but the same error. I hope you can help me :) Sorry for my Englisch ;) Hello from Germany ;)
  15. Greetings, I am rather new to the whole DayZ Epoch server thing.. Decided to set one up and I am getting an error, perhaps someone could help me out here? Everything was working 100% fine until I installed ESSV2 - (Enhanced Spawn Selection) then things went wrong, my arma2oaserver.RPT is below Addons I have installed: The issue: I either get stuck on "Requesting character data from server" or just a black screen with the DayZ logo, tried waiting around 10 minutes and still no change, however a small timer on the bottom right corner still counts up.. What I have tried: My RPT file: Any help would be much appreciated!
  16. Wondered whether anyone knows what causes the following type of error in the server.RPT and whether there is a fix. Pertinant to my question is that blckeagls mission system has been running and a few missions had been spawned and cleaned up. 8:44:15 Client: Object 3:298 (type Type_90) not found. 8:44:15 Client: Object 3:298 (type Type_91) not found. 8:44:15 Client: Object 3:298 (type Type_413) not found. 8:48:32 Server: Object 3:429 not found (message Type_413) Thank you in advance for any feedback you may have.

  17. Basically, title explains what's happening. I have a Linux Dedicated Server Box, and I am trying to run a ArmA 2 DayZ Overpoch Server. I've gotten everything working (that I know of), and I can finally join the game, and load into the loading screen, but after 10 seconds of loading it kicks me and says "This server is running an incorrect version of the server side application. You cannot play on this server. If you are the server admin please contact DayZ Epoch staff." I've already tried many times to fix this, and have done my fair share of research. I've updated the ArmA 2 OA Server files (just the server side files, not the entire ArmA 2 Game files). I've corrected and mostly fixed my MySQL, and connectivity (can't actually tell if it's connecting or not). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My Server is a Linux, Debian 7.8 (Stable), I run a few other Servers on this Machine, including TeamSpeak, Minecraft, and GMod sometimes. I've hosted Vanilla and Semi-Modded ArmA 2 OA Servers before on this Server, and it's worked fine, so I want to host a ArmA 2 DayZ Overpoch for me and my friends, and finally got it mostly working, except for this problem. Thanks in Advance!
  18. hi guys i just got a weird problem everytime i connect a server i get a blank land and i cant quit the server, have to Alt+F4 to get out :/ and i get no error codes . any ideas ??
  19. I need help, i have not been able to play epoch, i have tried reinstalling the games, and still cannot play Dayz Epoch. i get No Entry messages when starting up epoch No entry 'bin\config.bin/CfgWorlds/Chernarus.ilsPosition'. No entry 'bin\config.bin/CfgWorlds/Chernarus.worldName'. No entry 'bin\config.bin/CfgWorlds/Chernarus.description'. Please help me find a solution, i would very much love the help. And yes i have tried reinstalling and verify game cache, still did not work
  20. Hey guys, wonder if somebody can help me. With the launch of any Epoch server, after few minutes of loading i get error: "Out of memory". And i hear game sounds. Btw on standart Dayz servers it's all good. Please, help me. Specs: i5-3230M (2.6 Ghz), 6 Gb RAM, GT 635M, win10 (same error on win7)
  21. Hi, im getting this error ( HiveExt(0): [Error] Error executing |CHILD:399:693:| ) after i added overpoch weapons to database. cannot join server, it says waiting for server to start authentication. HELP weapons list im adding: And my question is what this means?? is it possible to stop this flood in console? it just writes this s*** and writes.. it goes through all items in game i think.
  22. Since the update of Epoch to 105/1051 there have been a lot of players reporting that they get stuck at the load screen on servers that have updated which, includes my server, GoG's World. Also, since we went back to arma2oa version 1.63.112555 (non Steam version but still on Commander), some players are having problems joining even though they have that version installed. If you follow these simple steps, on servers with this version combination, both problems are resolved 100% to our knowledge: Stuck at Loadscreen? On your PC, go to \Users\yourname\AppData\Local\ArmA 2 OA\MPMissionsCache and delete everything. These are just cached mission files and will be downloaded each time you join a server. (Unhide this folder tree if it is not there by selecting show hidden files and folders in folder options) (If you still cannot find this try searching for the folder name) Restart your PC Rejoin the server through either DayZ Commander or the multiplayer lobby of arma2oa Keep Getting Kicked Trying to Join? Go to DayZ Commander settings and uncheck the 'Launch Using Steam' option in 'Steam Options' Join the server again using DayZ Commander If the above didn't work, reinstall your arma 2 in Commander EVEN if it says you are already on version 112555. Rejoin the server using DayZ Commander As I mentioned earlier, these steps above have worked in 100% of reported cases on my server. Depending on which problem you are experiencing, please follow the steps above exactly. It would really help the community if you or, anyone you know who has read this and tried it, whether it worked or not, could please report your/their feedback. I really hope this helps a lot of people. Good luck!
  23. Just thought I would do a good deed and try get thread spam lower :). Here I will cover the most common problems for installing 0.2.5.1 on a Windows Server; START WITH VANILLA (NO CUSTOM MODS ETC). ONCE THE SERVER WORKS, THEN EDIT WHAT YOU WANT / ADD ADMIN ETC. ONE THING AT A TIME. Battleye: Public Variable Restriction #0 When a player joins they get kicked Check the RPT log, probably mentions something like SERVER VERSION MISMATCH or something. Client doesnt have the same version as the server. When using the admin tool you get kicked: Make sure you are using the latest server files and the latest BE Filters included in the SC/Battleye Folder. Check the Paths to your Battleye folder (in files @EpochHive/EpochServer.ini and BEC/Config/Config.cfg) point to the SC/BattlEye Folder. Check to make sure BEC has loaded the Watchdog plugin correctly (It should say in the BEC console window). If you still get kicked there may be a bug (unconfirmed) where your txt filters will be overridden with incorrect values every restart, If this is the case, be patient for a fix. Workarounds modifying publicvar.txt manually can cause security issues. (Could be the log rotator, need confirmation). Mission Read From Bank / Server Auto-Closes or Crash Upon Joining / Stuck at Server Initializing / Server not Ready (Error 02) This occurs when there is a problem loading the mod. This could be due to several causes: Redis Database Server Problems: Check Redis Database Server Issues below for the solution. Incorrect Configuration of Database: Check your DB/Redis.conf file and make sure the ip/port and the password you chose is correct; Then check your @EpochHive/EpochServer.ini file and make sure the ip/port and password are the same as in redis.conf. Incorrect Configuration of Server/Mod Files: Check that anything you modified in any of the following files didnt cause any syntax errors/problems (best to start fresh just to get it working): @EpochHive/epochAH.hpp @EpochHive/epochconfig.hpp SC/config.cfg SC/basic.cfg SC/Users/SC/SC.Arma3Profile Check that you have placed all the files ([email protected]/Keys Folders etc) in the correct locations in the correct place etc, just copy the entire contents of the server file zip to your arma 3 main directory, where your arma3server.exe is located. Redis Database Server Issues Nothing is saving to the database: Either your configuration (ip/port/passsword) dont match (check Mission Read From Bank ->Incorrect Configuration of Database) or the redis-server.exe in not running. If the redis-server.exe is not in the process list then check below; Redis-Server.exe not in Process list/No Console window: There are two causes I know of for this, the first is to check if you have all the redistributables required (it is like extra Microsoft files that the program needs to work). To do this, check your event log (start menu->type event viewer. On the left pane click Windows Logs->Application). Look for "Side-By-Side" Errors, you need to find the part of the error description that gives you a package name, for ex. "Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC90.CRT". Put that string in google and you should find the package you need quite easily. The second cause could be a low filespace/virtual memory/ram issue. To check this, Hold shift and right click in the redis-server.exe folder (DB folder) and select "Open Command Line Here". Type "redis-server.exe redis.conf". You should get and error or some kind of output stating a process fork failed due to space/memory issues. If this is the case you can either lower the "maxmemory" config in redis.conf (Minimum I would say 2gb, but personally I prefer the second option next) or you can increase your Paging File Size, You may need to experiment with this to get it stable, I currently have 16gb page file and it seems to run perfectly fine with maxmemory=4gb on a 3gb RAM machine. BEC Closes/Wont Connect/Scheduler Issues BEC Auto Closes when you try to run it Make sure you have the correct Visual C++ Redistributables, vc 2008 and vc 2003 should be sufficient, you can check your event log (windows->startmenu->type event viewer) under windows logs->applications and look for "side by side" errors for bec.exe. Google the description you find. BEC Wont connect to the server Make sure your ip from your command line is your actual IP address, also make sure the IP in the BEC/Config/Config.cfg file is correct. Or alternatively you can try omitting the -ip parameter from your command line and using the IP 127.0.0.1 in the BEC Config file. BEC Scheduler is not working, no messages/restarts/errors First thing to check is that you have un-commented the Scheduler Path line in your BEC Config. If not simply remove the # from start of the line If you setup your scheduler paths correct and it still will not work you should get some "error loading scheduler.xml" in the BEC Console window. If not, then maybe your timings are off? Consult the Scheduler Help File inside the BEC Config Directory. Some things to note: The scheduler must be in _precise_ format. eg, Id starts at 0 and increments by one for each new job. Older syntax from BEC prior to 1.6 will not work, they need to be modified (very simple) Data type none You might have forgotten to rename "example_BEServer.cfg" to "BEServer.cfg" in "Arma/SC/Battleye" folder. (Thanks to hogscraper) I can add some scheduler templates if people find it necessary though the scheduler has a very nice readme that explains everything you need to know. Admin Menu Wont Show/Spawn Menu Greyed Out etc No admin menu when F1 is pressed: Basically put - assuming you havn't disabled the anti-hack, your steamid64 is not in the admin list in epochAH.hpp You need to get your steamid64 (You can get your normal steam id here, you can then convert that to steamid64 here. Admin menu shows, but Spawn or other options are greyed out (Server is currently disabled) Looks like you put your steamid64 into the wrong admin slot, make sure you just put your id into the owner slot, once, that will give you full permissions. for ex; adminMenu_Owner[] = {{"7656xxxxxxxxxxx21","Any name you like (will go in admin log)"}}; Mission Select Screen Joining Server Server Files Is out of date If you have access to the server file system and can execute, update your server files using STEAMCMD. Plenty of tutorials online on updating dedicated arma 3 servers, same routine. ex. http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?147537-Tutorial-How-to-run-ArmA3-on-a-dedicated-server Startup Command-line Incorrect (Not loading SC/Config.cfg File)/Servername not same as in config.cfg Either you have something wrong with your startup parameters, or A problem with your config.cfg file, or - more likely; Your command line parameters are setup incorrectly. To remedy this: Make sure you copied the SC folder from the zip file to your arma3 server directory. Then use this command line to start your server: arma3server.exe [email protected];@EpochHive; -config=C:\Path\to\Arma3server\SC\config.cfg -ip=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -port=2302 -profiles=SC -cfg=C:\Path\to\Arma3server\SC\basic.cfg -name=SC Be sure to replace "C:\Path\to\Arma3server" with the correct path to your arma 3 server directory. (With arma3server.exe inside) Also replace "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" with the servers remote IP address. (The one the public see, not your lan/local address, you can use http://whatismyipaddress.com/). Note: You may omit the "-ip=xx... parameter completely if BEC still wont connect after reading the above tips. Note: You can also omit the full path to your config params, (Thanks to Scoo) eg -config=SC\config.cfg -cfg=SC\basic.cfg Feel free to post anything that I may have missed or that you would like to contribute to this faq. I can guaruntee there are spelling errors but this will do for now :). Good Luck!
  24. Hey guys! So i have been playing this game for quite a while now and everyday i come across people having client side issue when connecting to their favorite servers or just to the game in general. So much so that i have been taken on as a Tech Support of sorts for a few servers. Nothing is more annoying than when you are having connection problems to a server and all the guides say the same thing... Uninstall Arma.. re install Arma. Well i have never had to uninstall or re install the game and i usually have found fixes that avoid a requirement for this. so i have decided to post a guide to some of the common faults i see and a list of my fixes here. ** i Have actually found a pretty good guide which more or less outlines many of the fixes i was planning to put in this post. I have a few more that require a little less effort and can get you back playing quicker so i shall use excerpts of the guide and furnish it with my own solutions too** Here is a list of some of the more common errors i see. (before you go through this list please PLEASE check that all of your settings/ perameters/ install folder path files are correct and that you have the required mods for the server you are planning to play on. If you are attempting to join CCG servers i would recommend getting their own personal launcher from their website as the mod versions they run differ from those you can download on launchers such as DayZ Commander. You wouldn't believe how often it turns out the client side user has a error in their mod string or has missed a setting.) BEFORE WE GET INTO THE LIST OF ERRORS THE MAJORITY OF ISSUES CAN BE SOLVED BY SIMPLY GOING TO YOUR STEAM LIBRARY AND RIGHT CLICKING ON ARMA2 OA AND SELECTING PROPERTIES. THEN NAVIGATING TO THE LOCAL FILES AND VERIFYING THE INTEGRITY OF THE GAME CACHE. 1. ERROR: "Bad Serial Number Given on Setup" or "Invalid or Missing Serial Number" 2. ERROR: "Connection Failed" or "Bad version, server rejected connection" 3. PROBLEM: v1.62 instead of v1.62.xxxxxx 4. ERROR: "BattleEye initialization failed." (see also for battleye update failure) 5. ERROR: "No entry 'bin\config.bin/CfgInGameUI/MPTable.shadown'." 6. ERROR: "Error compiling pixel shader PSSpecularAlpha:0" 7. ERROR: "Addon 'dayz_anim' requires addon 'CA_Dubbing_Counterattack'" 8. PROBLEM: Black screen and/or Crash to desktop on start-up 9. PROBLEM: Spawn as a crow/bird. 10. PROBLEM: No servers showing up in the server browser. 11. PROBLEM: Really low FPS. (i7-processor) 12. PROBLEM: Missing Czech Republic DLC 13. ERROR: "Instruction at X referenced memory at 0x000000XX. The memory could not be read." 16. ERROR: "No Entry 'bin\config.bin/CfgMagazines.ItemNails'." 17.ERROR. Failed to load file "pmc|addons|air_pmc.pbo" - decryption of headers failed" ( likewise this one can also say baf in place of pmc. This is just an extension on missing Czech republic DLC error ERROR: "Bad Serial Number Given on Setup" or "Invalid or Missing Serial Number" SOLUTION 1: Close Steam, then run as administrator. Run ARMA 2. Run ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead. SOLUTION 2: Delete a file called "localconfig.vdf" in .\Steam\userdata\#\config The # is a series of digits that varies depending on your account. (If you've had multiple accounts active through your computer.) Restart Steam and run it as administrator. SOLUTION 3: ( I hate suggesting this and always recommend it as a last resort but sometimes it is required) 1. Uninstall A2/A2:OA entirely. (Including the folders in registry.) 2. Close Steam. 3. Run Steam as administrator and reinstall the games. WHY: (solution 1) Steam writes your serial numbers into your registry , but cannot do it if it doesn't have the rights to edit registry. Running both games means that Steam will re-write both serial numbers for both games. That way DayZ will work the next time you try to play it. ERROR: "Connection Failed" or "Bad version, server rejected connection" SOLUTION 1: Sort servers by "Mission" and look for missions labeled as "DAYZ" (Note the all caps.) These are the only servers you can join with just the Steam version. It only gives access to DayZ Vanilla. SOLUTION 2: Download DayZ Commander[www.dayzcommander.com] or DayZ Launcher[www.dayzlauncher.com] to keep DayZ, ARMA 2, and all unofficial maps and community-variants of the mod up-to-date. This is the BEST THING you can do if you want the most out of DayZ. (while DayZ Commander is a much more sturdy and well laid out mod launcher it does require you to manually insert the mod string (launch perameters) These generally take the form of "-mod=[the mods the server is running] most servers will display their required mod string in the server name and info or on the server website PROBLEM: v1.62 instead of v1.62.xxxxxx (This issue is rarely seen since the move over to Steam from Gamespy but some players still use the Beta version to launch) SOLUTION 1: Download and run ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead Beta, and launch DayZ with the beta patch. SOLUTION 2: Download DayZ Commander[www.dayzcommander.com] for easier handling of everything you need for DayZ. SOLUTION 2: Download a beta patch manually from here: http://www.arma2.com/beta-patch.php WHY: You are missing a Beta Patch. DayZ Commander is the best solution for getting one, because you can easily pick and choose which build to use. ERROR: "BattleEye initialization failed." SOLUTION 1. Open your Steam library and right ciick on Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead. Click on Properties and then the LOCAL FILES tab. Click on Browse local files. In the window that pops up scroll down and find the 3 applications ARMA2OA exe ARMA2OA_BE exe and just a little further down arma2oaserver exe Delete these 3 applications. now close the window and go to your LOCAL FILES tab again. At the end click "Verify integrity of game cache". Let it complete. It will take about 2 to 5 minutes. When it is complete launch Arma 2 Operation arrowhead from Steam and let it reach the main menu. When it does shut down the game and go back to your launcher. Now join your chosen server. SOLUTION 2. Similar to the first solution.. go the Steam Library, properties, LOCAL FILES, browse local files... this time when the window pops up open the folder named Expansion. Then open the folder named Battleye. Launch the application UninstallBE. Now on the LOCAL FILES tab verify integrity of game cache. Let it complete and then Launch the game to main menu once. it should re install Battleye. Now join your server of choice. SOLUTION 3: Manually download and re install BattlEye. You can download BattlEye from here: http://www.battleye.com/download.html WHY: ARMA 2 does its best to try and connect to BattlEye's update server, but sometimes there's a problem either on your end(most likely) or their end. When this happens, it's simply better to just download it yourself. [battleye update Failed] (there are two methods by which Battleye updates itself. One is when you are at the multiplayer setup menu of the server. In the lower left corner red writing will tell you 'Battleye has initialized' however you should watch this writing as sometimes it says Battleye is updating. This requires you to wait for it to complete before clicking OK. The issue many have is they click "OK" and dont notice that BE is updating and so it causes the update to fail .The other method and more recent form of Battleye update is a black cmd window opens when the client launches the game. Some mistake this as the game launching twice and close the second window again causing the update to fail **ALL OF THE SOLUTIONS FOR BATTLEYE INITIALIZATION FAILED WILL WORK FOR THIS TOO.** ERROR: "No entry 'bin\config.bin/CfgInGameUI/MPTable.shadown'." SOLUTION 1(unsure): Update your DirectX driver. Make sure you have the latest version of DirectX . SOLUTION 2(untested): 1. Go to .\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead\ 2. Run the "_runA2CO.cmd" or "_runA2CO_beta.cmd" to launch the game. SOLUTION 3: 1. Go to .\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead\ 2. Delete the @DayZ -folder. 3. Verify integrity of game cache. 4. Run ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead 5. Close ARMA2OA and try running DayZ again. (After re-download.) SOLUTION 4: (I always suggest this as a last resort and rarely tell anyone to uninstall and re install but sometimes there are exceptions) 1. Uninstall ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead through Steam. 2. Close Steam and run it as administrator. 3. Reinstall ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead. 4. VERIFY INTEGRITY OF GAME CACHE FIRST. 5. Run ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead. 6. Close ARMA2OA and try running DayZ again. WHY: --- ERROR: "Error compiling pixel shader PSSpecularAlpha:0" (This one is rarely seen these days however it is seen) SOLUTION 1: Update your DirectX driver. Make sure you have the latest version of DirectX . SOLUTION 2: Close Steam and run it as administrator. WHY: --- ERROR: "Addon 'dayz_anim' requires addon 'CA_Dubbing_Counterattack'" SOLUTION: 1. Go to .\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2\ 2. Copy the content of the 'addons' folder. 3. Go to .\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead\Common\ 4. Paste and replace/merge the files. (5. Additionally, copy the entire Addons folder into A2OA's main folder.) WHY: The required animations are in the ARMA 2 addon folder. Copying them over to ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead will also add them to where DayZ can find them. Not everybody are required to do this. (Assuming they don't have the error.) PROBLEM: Black screen and/or Crash to desktop on start-up SOLUTION: 1. Go to C:\Users\...\Documents\ArmA 2\ (Path may vary depending on which version of Windows you are running. Look for your "My documents" or "Users and Documents" if you're running older versions of Windows like Windows XP or Vista.) 2. Open the arma2oa.cfg in notepad, notepad++, or other simple text editor. 3. Find these lines: Resolution_W=1920; (The value after '=' might be different.) Resolution_H=1200; (The value after '=' might be different.) 4. Change the _W value to your screen WIDTH 5. Change the _H value to your screen HEIGHT and save. 6. Run the game again. SOLUTION: 2. Go to C:\Users\...\Documents\ArmA 2\ 2. Open ArmA2OA.cfg with notepad, notepad++ or similar. 3. Find "Windowed=0;" and change the 0 to 1. 4. Save the file. 5. Start the game, (re)set your graphic settings. (optional) 6. Close the game and change the 1 back to 0 and save. Note that if you can't find the part that says "Windowed", type it to the end of the list yourself. DON'T FORGET the ; at the end. You will get a new error if you don't place it there. WHY: Because most likely your monitor/system is having problems trying to open the game with the default resolution. In the first solution you are going into the settings file and manually changing the resolution that the game launches in. Manually changing the game to launch in a window is a more fail-safe method of fixing the issue. PROBLEM: Spawn as a crow/bird. SOLUTION 1: Find another server. SOLUTION 2: Download DayZ Commander to update your version of DayZ (or variation of) to the version the server you're trying to connect to is running on. WHY: What you're experiencing is the Spectator Mode. It's a normal part of ARMA 2, but is caused by a server-side glitch in DayZ. Most likely because of an incorrect version. PROBLEM: No servers showing up in the server browser. SOLUTION 1: Reset your filters, make sure you have no ping limits, either. SOLUTION 2: Make sure your anti-virus software isn't blocking the game. Either create an exception for the game(HIGHLY recommended.), or disable your firewall. Make sure to turn off your Windows firewall as well, but always turn them back on after you're done playing or when browsing the internet! SOLUTION 3: Download DayZ Commander, WithSix, or any other third-party server browser. (Those two are recommended, however.) WHY: Some anti-virus software, like Norton Anti-Virus, is known to block internet access from new software. This prevents your game from pinging servers to add them to your server browser. And for some people, pings tend to spike while the game is looking for servers, hence having a ping limit will hide most if not all servers. PROBLEM: Really low FPS. (i7-processor) SOLUTION: Disable Hyperthreading.To do this you need to access your BIOS. Restart your computer and as it begins you will be prompted to press a key to enter the BIOS It is different on every motherboard but some of the more common ones are F8,F10,F11,F12,End key. Again each Bios is different but navigate your way to the processor menu and disable Hyperthreading in the menu then save and restart. WHY: ARMA 2 does not (properly) support more than 4 cores. Hyperthreading drags the performance even lower. PROBLEM: Missing Czech Republic DLC SOLUTION: the problem ist that the combined operations batch file does not contain the ACR extension when launching combined ops. To corrct that, go to "%PATHTOSTEAM%\SteamApps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead" and edit the "_runA2CO.cmd" file with an editor of your choice. Find the lines that read ":runs "%_STEAMPATH%\steam.exe" -applaunch 33930 "-mod=%_ARMA2PATH%;EXPANSION;ca;ACR"" (near the end of that file) and edit the -mod line as follows: Original: "%_STEAMPATH%\steam.exe" -applaunch 33930 "-mod=%_ARMA2PATH%;EXPANSION;ca" New One: "%_STEAMPATH%\steam.exe" -applaunch 33930 "-mod=%_ARMA2PATH%;EXPANSION;ca;ACR" If you start combined ops now, you'll get the ACR Expansion too. Note that you'll still have to run Steam as Administrator and start _runA2CO as Administrator, to enable the expansion in general, if you haven't already done so. WHY: The batch file is missing the ACR from its launch parameters. ERROR: "Instruction at X referenced memory at 0x000000XX. The memory could not be read." SOLUTION 1: Go into .\Steam\Steamapps\Common\ARMA 2\DirectX\ and run DXSETUP.exe to install/update DirectX and its components. SOLUTION 2: Go into .\Steam\Steamapps\Common\ARMA 2\BEsetup\ and run setup_BattlEyeARMA2.exe to install/update BattlEye and its components. SOLUTION 3: Reboot your computer after completing the two above solutions. (Using DayZ Commander is advised.) WHY: Because something is either corrupted or not up to date. ERROR: "No Entry 'bin\config.bin/CfgMagazines.ItemNails'." SOLUTION 1: Find a server that is running on version 1.8 of the official DayZ mod. SOLUTION 2: Download DayZ Commander, and use it to download DayZ 1.7.7.1. WHY: You can ONLY join servers running on the SAME version as you, so if you are trying to join an outdated server while having a different Arma or Mod version installed, you will get stuck in the authentication process and/or receive the file error. .ERROR. Failed to load file "pmc|addons|air_pmc.pbo" - decryption of headers failed (can also be seen with baf in the place of pmc) SOLUTION. Go to your Steam Library and right click on Arma 2 British Armed Forces. go to the properties and then navigate tot he LOCAL FILES tab. Click on Verify integrity of game cache. You will be prompted with a window to uninstall BAF. click yes. Now do the same for Arma 2 Private Military Company. When prompted to uninstall again click yes. Now Launch Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead and it will begin to reinstall British Armed Forces and Private Military Company. Allow it to reach the main menu and then shut it down. Now join a server. WHY Something in the path file of the DLC has caused it to launch incorrectly. More often that not it is launching your mod on the DLC when it should be launching on Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead and reading the DLC separately. To put it simply it failed to recognize what to lunch and what addon to run. for lack of a better explanation the above actions will cause it to kick start again the correct way. Hope this guide helps many of you. Remember to be patient with it. After all it is a mod of a now old game and when it is trying to run mission files, database, custom scripts and pull DLC and files from everywhere it has a tendency to mess up sometimes.
  25. Ok so I was working out issues on a SQF file, sorting out typos, nothing to do with PBOs. You know the general ; missing or [. After sorting all the typos, I started to get authentication errors, "re-trying authentication" then it would flash this screen and kick me back to the lobby or else it would stick on the Dayz Epoch.PAA logo and sit there for eternity. Mind you I've reset the database, made sure the server PBO was stock. I am going to re-copy all the files back from my Arma 2 / OA and just begin again. It's a test server so . . . I posted this to see if this has happened to anyone else.
