  2. Weeb sounds

    I have no idea what you're talking about.

      Is this a DayZ community or a weeb community? Do you have any new plans, Rolle?
      It's getting a bit weird right now.

      Yes Rolle, weird. I thought we were a mature community? ;)
      I am glad to see you removed it now. Still love you, despite you are a weeb. <3

  4. Ask the admins

    There's been a lot of speculations and rumors going around the DayZRP community recently. To help to remedy the problem the admin team has decided to open up this thread where you can ask the server owner and the server admins any questions you may have - even the controversial ones - surrounding our work on DayZRP and allow more transparency about our work. However, we won't answer questions regarding DayZRP security measures, personal matters or other information that may compromise someones privacy. No discussion is allowed in this thread, only serious questions should be posted. Any posts that do not follow the template will be deleted and/or receive warnings. Only Server Admins are allowed to respond to questions in this thread. Use the template below to post your question(s), so it is easier for us to track and respond to them. Leave answer fields empty, we will write our answers there. Asking: /any admin Q1. A1. Q2. A2. Q3. A3.
  5. Memory loss / Virtual Memory Questions

    The game crashes are due to memory access violation as far as I remember, which is an issue in the source code of the game, so extending your virtual memory will not help. Virtual memory setting is how much drive will be used for pagefile on your drive. So technically it can be as large as how much free space you have on your C: drive. It has nothing to do with how much RAM you have. I recommend you leave it on the "system managed" setting, Windows will shrink and extend it as it sees fit to give best performance.
  6. Promotion

    Doing some quality PR work. Jim has suggested idea about Steam name changing to me, I thought it sounded cool, so I wrote some code, added more things and am now releasing it for public testing now to see the impact of it. PROMOTION PAGE (Also accessible from under "Information" menu) Promotion page is a system that will reward you for spreading the word about DayZRP community. Currently you can get rewards in 3 different ways: 1. Steam name Change your Steam name to include phrase "DayZRP.com" (without quotes), then go to your DayZRP website profile, click on edit profile and enable Steam name tracking. You will start earning a point every 3 hours you have the name on. (this is automated and working OK) 2. Recruit new members In your account settings you can find a referral link. If someone registers on the website using your link, you will receive some points. You will receive even more points if they successfully get whitelisted, play for some time on our servers or purchase a Premium rank. (this is being automated as we speak, you can still recruit people right now, but you won't receive the points for it until I'm finished later this week) 3. Content creation If you create content you can receive points by sharing YouTube videos featuring gameplay on our servers. The amount of points depends on the amount of views your video gets. This process is currently manual and requires you to send in a video to me, in order to receive the points. Only videos uploaded from 2017-08-28 are eligible, you can't receive points for videos recorded or uploaded in the past. Hopefully this will create some incentive for you to spread the word and at the same time get cool rewards and Premium ranks. Oh and of course feel free to suggest reward values or different kinds of promotion that we could offer to you, as the Promotion page says, this is in beta and the reward values were chosen on a hunch of what would be appropriate, rather than something researched and balanced out.
  7. Promotion

    You mean next to posts? It wasn't something relevant on the forums and it was taking up space so I removed it. You can still view your balance on the promotion page.
  8. Character deaths

    Yeah, currently the user cannot kill the character on their own, only admins can or it can be killed through too many in game deaths. There will be a setting Soon™
  9. The Legion

    No. Just.... no. My old meme group idea EPM had a more believable story and better RP potential than this. A group like this would be bordering on bad RP, so I'll just archive this and you should not RP this idea in game.
  10. Baiting

    bait beɪt/ verb gerund or present participle: baiting 1. deliberately annoy or taunt (someone). DayZRP rules say: 6.4 You may not bait other players into situations where you use kill rights or self-defense (see rule 7.2) due to their response to your provoking actions. This rule was created to prevent scenarios that include, but are not limited to following situations: 1. You leave a vehicle/valuable items at location and go away while keeping overwatch on the things you left from afar. Another player stumbles upon your vehicle/items and takes them. You initiate on the person and rob them from their items, or you straight out kill them because they are technically stealing your belongings which is a hostile action. You get banned for baiting, as you may not leave vehicles or items unattended and then claim them to be yours when someone in good faith takes them in belief that they do not belong to anyone or that the owner is not around. 2. You steal something from another player in a situation where: The item is of insignificant value or is not valuable enough to you to justify the need to steal it There is no IC reason to steal the item or it does not make sense in the current situation to be stealing things from other players You stealing the item would put you directly at risk of getting caught (for example stealing right in front of a player, surrounded by their allies) After you steal something, the person or allies of the person you stole from obviously confront you about it and either initiate or directly engage you (which is fair and understandable considering stealing is a hostile action). You, or your group then use self defense as a reason to kill the people you stole from. You get banned for baiting, as acting in a way that provokes another player to initiate on you and using that as means to gain self-defense kill rights is considered baiting. 3. You are at a hotspot location where a lot of players gather. You block a path leading to that area by for example blocking a road with a vehicle or stand with your character in a doorway. You do not initiate on anyone or act hostile towards anyone, but you don't move either, making it impossible for other players to pass. Finally, after talking and reasoning with you has failed to get you to move, someone initiates on you and tells you to move or you will die. You or your group use self defense kill rights to kill the initiating party. You get banned for baiting, as acting in a way that leaves other players no other choice but to initiate on you due to your behavior in order to continue their regular RP is considered baiting. 4. Two groups are hostile towards each other. Your group knows the position of the second group, so they send you in alone to their location so that you get initiated on and are taken hostage. Meanwhile, the rest of your group takes positions around the area in anticipation of the initiation. You get initiated on and draw the other group out of their cover. Your group then fires and kills the opposing group with ease, as your group didn't have to go through the risk of having to initiate on them and you helped to draw them out of defensive positions. You get banned for baiting, as risking your life and using tactics where people are sent in as bait straight to the enemy in order to gain self-defense kill rights for your group is considered baiting. Also, in all of these situations, as per rule 7.4, any kill rights gained from the baiting are invalidated and any killers from your group will also get punished for any invalid kills that may have been gained from baiting. Baiting is also a 5 day ban offense now. Of course, baiting can be done in many ways, but it's usually easy to spot since it has very close links with rule play (killing people simply because the rules allow you to - rule 7.5), NVFL (risking your life for something meaningless, just to gain kill rights for your group - rule 5.6) or disregard for fair play (using any kind of advantage that the rules may give you, even if it doesn't make sense IC or is not considered ethical/fair play OOC - rule 5.3). I hope this clears it up for both community members and staff who handle report verdicts on how the rule should work and be applied when enforcing our in game rules.
  11. Please stop trying to bribe me. My debt is only so big.

    1. Samti


      xD oh boy that sounds like a meme

    2. Voodoo


      Level of weebism is too damn high!

  12. Warning points

    Your whitelist has been revoked.
  13. Warning points

    Like Galaxy said, we wiped all old warnings from 5 years prior and kept stuff from November 2016 and onwards, as it wasn't really relevant to keep all the old stuff from DayZRP mod etc. Final warnings were supposed to be kept, but on another thought ain't nobody got time to review final warnings from 2 years ago. So you are free to go, sir, if you need another final warning we'll just slap one on you with rule 4

    Brace yourself. The best bangers are coming.

    1. Mexi


      I'm at Uni Rolle.. why must you do this?!

    2. Rolle


      It's tomorrow... o.O

    3. Mexi


      Oh shit yeah.. ignore me.

  14. Hmm, that shouldn't happen even if there are two people with the same name online. I'll check. /edit Oh I think it might be the game kicking you, not our whitelist. Nothing I can do then, just change your name.
  15. Endeavour's Farm

    Yeah, but... In order to make it realistic you'd have to remove every reference to wild west and cowboys. The whole group idea is centered around that, so it's not something that can be simply edited out, it would have to be remade from scratch. Just my 2c tho, trying to save you from unnecessary work
  16. Endeavour's Farm

    This is the only group lore that explains why it is in Chernarus, I think you need to either rethink some of your lore or possibly elaborate on why your character is in Chernarus and why he thought to make a wild west style gang in an apocalypse, obviously given the circumstances... It doesn't really make sense to me (and clearly others). I have to agree with this, if we're going to role play in a post apocalyptic survival game based in 2017 in an eastern european country and stick to the lore we have, we can't have wild west groups, yakuza groups, mexican drug cartel groups or seal team six groups as it makes 0 sense for them to be here, regardless of what story you come up with behind it. So we have to ask ourselves a very important question, whether we stick to realism and follow an actual plausible environment and role play in game considering the lore, time and location, or we treat the lore as a background story about how infection happened and allow "fun" groups that make very little sense, but bring fresh and less serious RP to the table.
  17. So... Where is everyone?

  18. IP camera security danger! Warn people!

    This has been know for a pretty long time, you just have to enter a certain query into Google and you get a list of hundreds of camera IPs, many with default passwords. Same can be done with unprotected printers. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/92/47/97/924797739cff17684bf5a5de579e9fe2.jpg
  19. 48 hour character change a bit excessive?

    It's 24 hours right now
  20. Staff Feedback: Rolle

    Leave feedback or criticism for Rolle. Keep in mind the staff feedback posting rules present on the staff feedback forum index.
  21. Staff Feedback: Rolle

    Aiko and Ender agreed with the verdict through thread notes that only staff can see, however I did not explicitly ask them to sign as they were offline at the time. So I used their thread notes as a form of signature and added a joke that they signed involuntarily. Don't worry, I've never forced anyone to sign or agree with anything, that would undermine the whole idea of signing.
  22. Youtube Publicity

    Like others mentioned I think we exhausted the possible channels of YouTubers that are/were interested in DayZ. @JimRP has made quite a few contacts with content creators over the last year. Until beta hits I don't think there is much that we can offer or provide to these content creators to create videos which would be interesting to their audiences. Unless of course it's a well planned story, like the videos Mr. Moon made. We just need to switch to PUBG RP, plenty of audience and players there
  23. The Game

    Wow, ooc hat
