Arma 2 Overwatch server

Recommended Posts

We have the arma 2 server up and running, I just would like to know if anyone else is having issues getting in as myself, roadkill, kage, sgt.chris couldn't get in last night due to constant crashing, I checked the rpt logs and nothing really showed any problems apart from DZAI which has no affect on players in the server/ trying to join. If your also having problems let me know so I can try work out this issue.

@FunkyJosh>XI< Can you or make a complete list of the mods on the server I know you can play with only the three mods from DayZ Launcher but Chris is saying there is 11 so if we can get that list it would be easier to diagnose problems.

@roadkill Don't lose hope yet there is a serious problem with the server right now if you want to follow these steps this should make it possible to join the server as is.

If you don't have it already go ahead and download the DayZLauncher it is linked to the underscore.
Before you install it though make sure you start Arma 2 first when it loads completely to the menu you can exit the game.
Then start Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead then go ahead and make a profile for yourself after it loads to the menu.
After your profile is made go ahead and exit the game and install/start DayZLauncher.
Goto settings in the top right corner of the program and make sure it has a path for Arma 2 if not just direct it to where you installed it through steam. (If you installed it to the default directory it will be under C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 2    or it will be in a sub steam directory on another one of your drives if you did that)
If that is all set and done go ahead and type xi in the name box in the servers tab and press enter.
Click the very last button on the right of the xi server (it should look like a down arrow with a underscore) and it should prompt you to install the mods for the server, just click yes and it will start to download the mods you need.
After all of the mods are downloaded you can restart the DayZLauncher and type in xi again and the last button on the right should be a play button now.
You should be good to go, but just be warned if you are having a issue with the screen turning white just alt tab and force close the game and try to join the server again.

Okay, the problem was that the panthera overwatch package is not compatible with Dayz Epoch 1.0.6.2 you need 1.0.5.1 now that's not happening I am working on it now and have changed it to epoch namalsk, if you want to try and get in tonight please jump into teamspeak, I haven't lost hope as oster said it was a major problem with no record in the rpt log hence why we couldn't fix the problem.

I will now explain the easiest and recommended way to get into the server, 

First make sure you install Arma 2 Before you install Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead

Run Arma 2 to get the first setup installation complete for DirectX

Run Arma 2 Operation Arrow head to get the first setup installation complete for DirectX (Whilst your on Arma 2 Operation arrow head create your player profile, >XI< members use your ingame name >XI<)

Install the dayz Launcher from this link >>>>> http://dayzlauncher.com/

Open up the launcher once it has finished installing then on the left hand side you will see NAME: type in >XI< The server will come up and it should say >XI< XtremeIdiots Fight For Survival 

On the right hand side next to the server ping there will be 3 icons you will want to click on the play icon/download icon it will say you do not have the mods to play would you like to install them click yes then once finished close the launcher down open it back up and you should be able to play.

ANY ISSUES I WILL BE IN TEAMSPEAK!!!!!!!!
