Well, after the reinstall I ran the days install tool v1.3 and it runs flawlessly now.

Here is the page that has instructions and the link to the page to download the tool.

Thanks, I was having trouble trying to run Dayz with the beta patch. This made it easy.

I wish I would have seen this last night, I must have spent an hour trying to get it to launch properly with the SixUpdater. It kept trying to force the CBA & JayzLib mod, so when I would join a DayZ server I would get kicked for having non-approved mods running. I may still give this a shot though because I have no idea if it will still be working for me tonight.

I'm not really sure why, but using the shortcut causes the game to always launch in windowed mode with a lowered resolution.

that's intended, it's because the .cmd i use have -window parameter

just push alt+enter on the menu screen to maximize to full screen

i decided to use windowed mode as default to ensure less issues (some people have issue with fullscren due to drivers etc w/o setting first some resolution etc)

Thanks, I just opted to delete the -window parameter instead.

i know this is going to sound stupid, but offline and online, does that mean online gameplay and offline gameplay?

no it mean one is full 100+MB installer and another is just 150KB binary which downloads the data from DayZ file mirror site

Thank you for this. Just one thing, is it possible for you to make this launch through Steam, as if you were just playing regular Arma 2? I'm weird and like to track my time played :P
