Hello folks, im new. totally new... apart from countless hours on YT watching other peeps

So why am i here... because of the update of course, so ye... really....i'm that new! 

Finally my rig can handle this game or finally the game works reasonably well... chicken or the egg eh... 

That said, im on H1Z1 and i was always itching to play DayZ but as mentioned my comp couldn't handle it. 

FX8350 with 2x760s in SLI of course DayZ only uses one of the GPUs so.... Dodgy CPU and an old card... but anyway...  now im here in glorious 60fps... (not in cherno..) and im happy to get into the game. 

I'm genuinely looking forward to getting into the RP side of the game, i always tried to play H1Z1 that way but F*** that game is just call of duty on a big stupid square map. Watching YTers playing RP dayZ i was always wanting that experience and i hope to get it here. 

Nice to meet you all, and i'll make you a deal, don't shoot me and i will do my best not to die of hunger and thirst.

Welcome to the community DingBatDave!

I hope maybe your countless hours on YouTube watching other people in roleplay will make it easier for you to get into. Forget H1Z1, DayZ is the thing! Make sure you thoroughly read the rules and lore. I suggest using this tool when you create your character. If you need help getting started or just want someone to "hold your hand" trough this first period, check out the mentors that volunteer to help you and other newcomers and send them a PM.

Hope to see you on the forums and in game. Good luck!

Welcome lad! Be careful. You might be seeing H1Z1 version 2 in here. Dank gear and all that man, ;)

All banter aside, welcome! Since you are new, here are some tips to warm you up!

1. Get your character setup!

Start a character page, and begin fleshing out your character. What is he terrified of? What does he hate? What is his innatemost fear? What is one thing that he will never do? Canned beans or bacon?

You can get a liftoff by typing it here : http://www.dayzrp.com/characters

2. Know where to get help!

Got something confusing you? Need a clarification with the rule? Bugged game? WTF, I JUST LOGGED IN AND LOST ALL MY GEAR WHERE DO I GO? I know I have! Some of the rules may seem ambiguous, and it is important to sew out all the kinks before you dive into the world. You may approach a staff at the helpdesk, or go to the technical section.

Technical help : http://www.dayzrp.com/f-Troubleshooting

Newcomer's guide : http://www.dayzrp.com/guide

3. Oh god, I can't find a solution, but it seems too common to post!

Don't fret! There is a FAQ for any commonly solved problem. If it is not on there, throw it down.

FAQ : http://www.dayzrp.com/faq.php

4. I am terrified that I glitch out in the loaded minefield that is Chernarus.

Do not worry! We have a megathread for encountered bugs. Give it a quick browse through before you dive into our world. Be warned that bugs are plentiful, and that megathread is not a confirmed list of every single bug!

Known issues and solutions : http://www.dayzrp.com/t-60-Known-Issues-and-Fixes

Encountered bugs : http://www.dayzrp.com/t-Currently-Known-Bugs

Have fun in this community, and I hope to see you on the server. :)
