The ArmA 2 zombie mod that has made the military simulator stay in the top ten Steam sales for over three months has finally hit one million unique players, a very large feat for creator Dean "Rocket" Hall and his team.

While the moment is quite a happy one, the DayZ creator and his team are still working as hard as possible, with a standalone release having been teased in a recent interview with MP1st.
Hall gave fans an update on the upcoming standalone DayZ title, stating that it should release in the next few months and ”certainly before Christmas,” as long as a deal can be struck with Bohemia Interactive or another publisher.
If you haven't yet heard of DayZ then check out the official website for a run down of the survival mod including the official forums and screenshots. You can also check out AusGamers official install guide to get things running for your bean filled adventures.

I wonder how many of them have paid money for a buggy alpha mod for a s***** video game.

I found Arma2 fun. Certainly worth the $20ish.

None. The mod is free.

Arma2 is a f*****g awesome game full of content for only $30 and was even cheaper during the Steam sale.

While I love the idea, and have watched a fair few videos on it. I cant bring myself to play it when it looks so ugly and the user interface seems so unco.

Perhaps when they will release a stand alone I will get involved, but with the success this has had, surely a clone with a few improved features cant be that far away.

Yeah, having just watched videos of it, the user interface looks EXTREMELY unco and unintuitive, I often have nfi what the hell people are doing when they have their inventory (I think its their inventory?) open.

I'm a bit the same, I enjoy watching some of the videos of it, and the whole idea of making the world and then letting people just run off and do whatever the hell they want and see what gameplay emerges is interesting from an experimental point of view, but I don't think I'd really enjoy playing it.

Once you get used to how the system works its actually quite simplistic and easy to understand. The game can actually look amazing with either very high details or certain mods, however to get those specs you'll need quite a taxing machine.

An SSD works wonders for Arma2. It really is a silver bullet for getting it to run well. Also the latest version supports FXAA (or whatever it's called) which also frees up a whole bunch-o-frames.

The interface is objectively bad in Arma2, and also completely broken. Things like guns disappearing if you try and put them in a backpack without enough slots is infuriating.

DayZ is on hold till it is a more polished product for me. Nothing breaks a game like rampant cheating. For now if I need an Arma fix I just open up vanilla and f*** around in the editor. God I love that mission editor.

The engine is quite pretty, very scalable and I find incredibly capable of concepts like this mod and much more, sure the models aren't 'hi poly' at all, but when you consider everything around you, it's quite functional, and I don't know of another (current) engine that could manage what ARMA's does.

It's biggest flaw, is it's input API's and overall UI.
If ARMA3 looks IDENTICAL, I simply ask that they fix the s***eful input problems, and improve their methods for 'contextual action key' input. It 'works' as it is, and in reality I don't think it would take that much more work to really polish up.

Rdizz, make the jump. It is far more fun than BF3 and I spent many hours playing that.
