Epoch Beta - RC2

Recommended Posts

Ladies and Gentlemen we are ready for our second Epoch Release Candidate.

Joining with the DayZ Launcher

  1. Download and install 7-zip from this website: https://7-zip.de/download.html
  2. Download the Epoch Client Files from google drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1GQ-vj-nE2TJeJ9yYAMd3Jbx81cd0isRx/view?usp=sharing
  3. If you have finished the download, unpack the Epoch Client Files. You need at least 7 GB of disk space.
  4. Go into the folder where you have installed all your of Arma 2 OA DayZ mods. It depends on where the DayZ Launcher has set the path.
  5. Once you found the folder with your mods rename @DayZ_Epoch to @DayZ_Epoch_old.
  6. Copy and paste the @DayZ_Epoch folder from 3. into the mods folder where you have renamed the Epoch Mod. Keep in mind you need at least 7 GB of disk space.
  7. There should be a folder with the name @DayZ_Epoch_old and @DayZ_Epoch now.
  8. Click on @DayZ_Epoch and check if there is a sub folder called addons. @DayZ_Epoch\addons.
  9. If there is another folder called @DayZ_Epoch copy everything from this folder into the root folder called @DayZ_Epoch. So it looks like: that @DayZ_Epoch\addons and not: @[email protected]_Epoch\addons.
  10. You are ready to join an Epoch Server now. Open the DayZ Launcher and join - Official Epoch RC2 Test Server. Use only the IP without the port or search for Official Epoch
  11. You will get a message that Epoch needs validating/updating. Click ok and ignore it. You can join the Test Server now.
  12. If you want to join any other Epoch non server, just rename @DayZ_Epoch_old back to @DayZ_Epoch.

For Server Admins:

  1. Download and install 7-zip from this website: https://7-zip.de/download.html
  2. Download the Epoch Server Files from google drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/14NaTdkf8SAayg-UhXJ3dbHxtCdbXzoU4/view?usp=sharing
  3. The passwortd to unpack is: 123456
  4. Server Admins can use the verifySignatures = 2; since all addons are fully signed. The bikey comes with the server files. Please overwrite the old RC1 key with the new RC2 key.
  5. Update your configVariables from RC1 or take the new one. A few new variables got added.

How to test:

  1. Do not use any third party scripts or tools. Do not use infistar as an admin tool. Use this testkit: https://github.com/worldwidesorrow/TestKit
  2. Enable -showscripterrors in the DayZ Launcher and never ever use -nologs for testing.
  3. If you have bugs and problems on testing always provide logs. Server(if you are the admin) and Client Logs. You can find the Client Logs under C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Local\ArmA 2 OA
  4. It is possbile that the folder is hidden in windows. You can make it visible: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4028316/windows-view-hidden-files-and-folders-in-windows-10
  5. Do not post the logs directly, use pastebin.com, google drive, or something like that and add the link.
