So, I've just downloaded the 'ARMA 2' and the 'ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead' off Steam, downloaded the latest version of DayZ-mod off the official site.
The downloads took ages to complete, and they finally got done last night. I followed a video from YouTube on how to properly install and run the DayZ-mod.
Now, everything is suppose to be up and working. Using steam, I accessed the 'ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead' and went to multiplayer.
I found many servers, some with yellow dots by them, some with red crosses, and others with a key-symbol. I quickly figured out that the red crossed-servers were probably servers I couldn't access due to either wrong or outdated data, or cracked/hacked servers. The number of yellow servers were very few , and when I finally found one that had a decent ping-pop I entered only to recieve the message that I didn't have th correct 'dayz_code'-file.
I again visited the dayZ-site and downloaded a newer(?) version of the said file (and the rest...just to make sure). Still, I get the same message on all of the servers. I haven't spent any time in-game yet...
Any of you got any tricks or help that will make this game work properly? I just spent 14 Euros on these two games so I want to be able to play 'em.
