DayZ Mod server shutting down

CiKeZ ADMIN posted Oct 11, 17

Hey all. As you may have heard, I have decided to shut the server down. This is a decision that was hard to make but I think it's time. Thanks to everyone, especially all of the loyal donors and players over the past 4+ years. I do plan on bringing out a PUBG server once they release the server files. I will be keeping smsurvivalgrounds.com, so the website will NOT be shutting down. DayZ Mod server will be shutdown by October 17, 2017.

Server updated to DayZ Mod 1.8.9

CiKeZ ADMIN posted Jun 26, 17

Hey all!

The server has been successfully upgraded to DayZ Mod 1.8.9.

YOU MUST HAVE THE LATEST DAYZ MOD CLIENT VERSION AND THE LATEST STABLE ARMA 2 PATCH INSTALLED VIA STEAM. When launching DayZ Mod via Steam it should automatically update your game to 1.8.8. If not you can go into your game library and update DayZ Mod. Make sure you do not have auto update turned off or you will not get the latest stable patch updates.

You can go to the link below to look at the latest changes in this patch.

https://github.com/DayZMod/DayZ/releases/tag/1.8.9

Have fun and keep in mind some things are missing and will be added throughout the week so please be patient.

If you are receiving a "SESSION LOST" error, try going to your Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead folder and deleting the @DayZ folder. Once you do that go into your Steam library, right click on DayZ Mod, and Verify Integrity of Game Cache. Then relaunch DayZ Mod via Steam.

You may now connect and start playing. Let me know if you have any issues or suggestions.

Go to this link to a see a FULL list of fixes/features added in 1.8.8:

Thanks!

ZBuffett The SESSION LOST fix to the letter and it didn't work for me. Any other suggestions?

Hey everyone! 

The server has been successfully upgraded to DayZ Mod 1.8.7 and Windows Server 2012!

YOU MUST HAVE THE LATEST DAYZ MOD CLIENT VERSION AND THE LATEST STABLE ARMA 2 PATCH (131129). When launching DayZ Mod via Steam it should automatically update your game to 1.8.7. If not you can go into your game library and update DayZ Mod and Arma 2. Make sure you do not have auto update turned off or you will not get the latest stable patch updates.

You may now connect and start playing. Let me know if you have any issues or suggestions.

Thanks!

If you have not noticed Bohemia Interactive updated Arma 2 to a new patch. This was causing me issues connecting to my server. If you are having the same issue just create a new shortcut by right clicking on your desktop and going to New > Shortcut. Copy and paste the following in "Type the location of the item:"

steam://run/33930//-noSplash%20-nosplash%20-skipintro%20-noPause%20-maxMem%3D2048%20-malloc%3Dtbb4malloc_bi%20%22-mod%3DC%3A%5CProgram%20Files%20(x86)%5CSteam%5Csteamapps%5Ccommon%5CArma%202%3BEXPANSION%3BCA%3B%40DayZ%3B%22

MAKE SURE YOU ARE LOGGED INTO STEAM BEFORE LAUNCHING THE DAYZ MOD SHORTCUT AND YOU MUST HAVE THE LATEST DAYZ MOD CLIENT VERSION AND THE LATEST STABLE ARMA 2 PATCH (131129). BOTH OF THESE CAN BE ACQUIRED THROUGH YOUR STEAM LIBRARY.

You will get a popup that looks like this. Just click OK and you should be good to go:

If the box doesnt popup just double click on steam in your system tray and you will then see the popup that looks like the screenshot above.

This should allow you to launch and play DayZ Mod without getting the Battleye errors or "Session lost" error. It should also make it to where you do not have to use any type of launcher.

Hope this helps.

If you prefer to use a launcher we recommend using DayZLauncher. It has been updated to work with DayZ Mod 1.8.7.

If you still have issues post on our forums and we will try to help you.
