How to get DayZ working with Steam version of Arma II.

Dayz is an awesome mod if you like zombies. I’vent had the time to fully try it out but at least I got it running smoothly now 🙂

These are the steps you need to do:

* Start Steam as admin
* Start Arma and Arma Operation Arrowhead once (to make sure the cdkey is registered by steam)
* Run the latest patch
* Download latest version of DayZ and unpack it into steam/steamapps/common/arma 2 operation arrowhead/@dayz/addons
* find the _runA2CO_Beta.cmd and search for ”:run”. On that very road, find ”-mod=%_ARMA2PATH%;EXPANSION;ca” and replace it with ”-mod=%_ARMA2PATH%;EXPANSION;ca;@dayz”

And that’s it! There are a few programs that autoinstall and what not, but I’m not a fan of third party products and prefer to do it myself 🙂

I hope this helps out out and just remember to start as admin and run the game at least once!
