I downloaded Lingor on Dayz Commander then tried to join the server but without success, so I closed Dayz Commander and then relaunched it. Then I clicked on update/install to open the window then clicked on reinstall on the Lingor download. A message came up saying ' checking previous install' so once it had finishing checking I didn't press the reinstall button again but tried the server again and it worked. I hope this helps.

Yeah its a bit tempremental to install but once its running it auto updates fine.

 

Was really good wondering around Lingor.. its no Cherno but good to be back on edge a bit not knowing where I was or heading… finaly found Daniel and Arthur and there was actualy some good banter with the bandits who seemed to have a sense of humour… be good to give it another go next week laugh

^ Good work.  

In Cherno & I finally found a ghille suit, also pinched a DMR off a sniper fool. Now I'm terrified to loose it all..!

What should I do?

Now tents are fixed get one and run to the middle of nowhere drop stuff in tent then have fun getting more loot smile.

I really find the the gearing up to be the best part of the game, love having multiple characters on lingor.

 

Just tried the Takistan map and my initial thought that this was a snipers wet dream were quickly realised as at the first village by the spawn spot I found 7+ bodies in the road (most new spawns but one did have a akm I risked taking) and alot of chat about new spawns getting constantly shot frown. Otherwise the map is a nightmare, lots  of zombies (20-30+ in small village with me), bugged houses which seem to hardly slow zombies and many with only on door, not many buildings and bugger all cover cry.

Its good to play DayZ Lingor for the change of scenery and most buildings are accessible. Players seem more willing to befriend you than in Chernarus. The only problem I'm experiencing is a substantial drop in frame rate in the towns, I guess its because of the amount of extra work my GPU has with so many building interiors to draw.

 

Maybe catch up with you on Sunday evening's zombie slaughter fest Inferno. smile

Have to say Im quite enjoying Lingor… I think its the challenge of learning a new location but also everyone seems really friendly, plenty of good humoured banter which makes getting sniped much less of a silent execution but more of an amusing cat and mouse situation.

 

Im off on my jolly holls for two weeks so wont be around until 27th… stay frosty ladies laugh

Had a lot of fun tonight on Lingor Island, especially in the fire station which got a bit close at one point when I broke a leg midway through a zombie massacre .

 

As usual we walked for a fair old distance…

Anyone got a car?

 

…This of course made us a little hungry…

…so we had a BBQ…

Good photos Toxic, I've just been to the new tent to drop off some blood bags, Morphine and cooked steaks for next Sunday. The tent had no gear inside for some reason but I still left the medical stuff hoping that it was just a glitch.

I've just hit the jackpot on the Lingor server we use, A player camp with at least 6 tents most of which are full of gear, I grabbed myself a DMR and 12 clips. I suggest we head up there on Sunday and clean it out.laugh

Hmmm,

Worrying that it was empty.

I was on about 6 topping it up and it was pretty stocked then.

Went over to the west island. Seemed quiet and there is an awesome villa there with some good loot.

I'll check on the tent AM.

Tent checked, and all present and correct.

 

Must have been a bug arthur.

 

Popped a PDW, Enfield, ammo, a few cans of juice and some uncooked meat in the tent.

I was moving around different servers Digi so that was probably the reason. From now on I'll just be playing on the server we use on Sunday evenings. I'll be very surprised if our new tent is discovered as its so well hidden.

Enjoying Lingor Island. Is there a preferred server to use?

Is anyone still playing DAYZ?

 

See there are a few new maps so wondering if anyone wants to check them out.

 

Also I have a spare pair of nightvision goggles in normal DAYZ that need a good home. smile

Oh. Crap.

Sorry Toxic–we spoke about this yesterday, and I entirely forgot!  My bad.  I'm still to heavily in to the MineCrack I'm afraid (Tekkit specifically).  Oh well, admitting you've got a problem is the first step, I suppose.

 

Anyway, Imma play some DayZ now–Panthera Island probably, so pop on and look for me if you like.

Been playing a little of Namalsk map, gosh thats a grim environment. 

I had'nt played DayZ vanilla for months, and a few updates. I log back in last night & everything is still there on my character, except nightvision goggles! Pretty impressive, since at one time if the game hiccuped, you were flown back to the beach.

Returned to Chernarus Map this evening. Still the best map I've played, and now with the Debug Monitor removed increases the challenge. Still suffering from hackers though.

I'm really having a second wind in Chenarus. Certain servers seem to be alive with activity, vehicles & opportunities for mayhem & stories. I'm well up for DayZ Sundays again btw.

Don't hold your breath for the full release, jump in! ..*Comes out tomorrow*.. smile

I'm currently playing WarZ, but could be tempted back in with DayZ, infact I am still North of Cherno, hid by the tree line after one of the last Sunday sessions. I keep hearing of these private hive servers which have more vehicles on and would like to try some of them

I just completed my first proper bogey flank, two snipers on.. sniper hill.

Could have gotten closer with my double barrel, they were totally blind to their six. Took one down, but they other cheap shotted me with the semi auto DMR badassery! Oohh, this is fun. Now I'm just going to start flanking punks.

Not really been able to get back into Dayz recently so going to wait for the standalone release, which hopefully won't be long smile.

Probably time for me to throw in a couple more cents' worth:

ToxicBuddha and I (along with T1lt, Fearless and QuikSv2–sorry if I got any spellings wrong!) have played some of the newer maps recently.  Taviana is an excellent map, and we've gathered enough vehicles, equipment and firepower to–literally–invade a small country.  Everything's well hidden, and we're just waiting for the server to update to the newest Taviana version.  (Fingers crossed we keep our stuff.)

 

While we couldn't get on that server this evening, we played the Namalsk map for a short time.  Let me make this bit really clear:

You.  Have.  To.  Play.  This.  Map.

 

But not alone.

 

It's cold.  It's dark.  It's brutal.  We died–over and over.  We're under-equipped and overrun, but this map just has to be tried.

 

So–if you've moved on to something else, or are waiting for the standalone, then there are at least two awesome maps in the mod that are still being played.  In Taviana, there are a ton of guns to go around, and in Namalsk… well–you'll see.

So hit me up on Steam (Sable_Aviso) and see if I'm around.  (I usually am!)  Then maybe we can get a bunch of people together again.  I'd also be willing to go for a scheduled evening or something (any day is fine except Wednesdays).

 

That's probably way more than two cents' worth!

Peace out.

Cheers for the update Pilargore… I have a month off work from today (baby number three arriving on boxing day!) so will make sure I get me some DayZ action laugh

 

Was absolutely amazed when I just fired it up to find myself hid in the same bush I was when I logged out about two months ago with my DMR and all my kit!

 

Downloading Namalsk now thumbs-up

Quick Q I could probably answer myself with a bit of research..  Have the TS server details changed?
