    Heard from Janne that the server has really been shut down.

    I played here from the start in fall 2012 (has it really been that long, wow?), and even when I haven't been playing for the last year or so, I still find myself waking up in the morning after running and exploring Chernarus for the whole night. :-D

    Needless to say, these years playing here were awesome in so many ways, and it still amazes me how captivating such a sandbox environment can be to a curious individual. And ppl, don't be sad about the server shutting down, instead be happy about all the moments you got to experience here, it's been a privilege.

    So - thanks and cheers to everyone (finns, swedes, all of you) who I played with and everyone who I encountered on and off the server, it was a blast!

    It was never about the zombies or the loot, it was about ya'll.


    p.s. Huge special thanks to @Tansien and all of the crew for maintaining the server for so long.

    p.p.s @Karhu even visited me & @Vien in Finland last year, all thanks to the fact that we met him in Dayzero. :cool:

    p.p.p.s I have over a terabyte of recordings and screenshots from Dayzero that I need to recover and go through on a semi-broken harddrive. :-D

    p.p.p.p.s This is the typical way we used to play, staying alive was never the point. :p

  6. Like just about everyone else, I'd lke to thank you Tansien for your hard work over the years, and the creation of the best mod of a mod I've ever played. You are the GOAT man. DayZero is a prime example of why community driven games end up being so amazing. I will remember all the great times i've had on this game forever.

    RIP DayZero, and by extension RIP Arma 2 DayZ Mod. <3

    Hey guys if Tansien would like to we could arrange something with a friend of mine.
    He is the co-owner and developer at https://saur.co/board/ and Cain and me had a chat with him and he would be willing to host the server and try and find some people who are willing to moderate it.
    So maybe we could still enjoy the best Dayz experience that is out there.

    So Tansien if you would like to we could have a chat on teamspeak and talk about the possibilities if you are willing to.
    And keep your legacy running.

  11. OMG the drama. He's not going to let loose of the server files, and he's not going pass the servers to anyone. Either of those could be done with very little cost and effort. Many of us have been doing both for years and years , so we know. If it was going to be done, it would have been done by now. Maybe he doesn't want any repercussions or liability going forward with the new owners. Or maybe he feels he'd never get paid for the time he put into it if he feels its worth some sort of money. Who knows. Either way its his business.

    This mod is dead . Was a heap of fun while it lasted ,and be thankful for that and move on already. Bashing each other here is just silly.

    Thanks for the good times.
     
  12. Ye...there was some willing admins, and such. But in the end he just wanted it shut down. We always could've found new admins to spectate and such
    but apparently that is not me :) Nor anyone else I know.

    I was given a no-no after all :)

    Hello everyone. Just letting you know that the server files do not work with 3rd party hosters without heavy modifying. Also the admin tools are just too complicated to install, maintenance and tweak/configure. On top of that giving away the server files would compromise the future antihack features we might have to implement for Standalone version.

    And about the admins: Sadly there is currently no-one that can be trusted to take over the "deep" adminisitration of the mod. We could have made a multiple users a moderator / spectator (like Ignak), but without them having access and know-how to go through the tools, SQL and logs it would have been pointless as they would have been missing 80% of the information needed to effectively search and ban the cheaters.

    Even giving a small tutorial on basic admin tools usage will take multiple hours and on top of that the new admin already needs to know how Arma II, @hive, SQL and general data integration and collection works.

  14. I respect your decision and I stand by it. It was just a last shot that I'd be a admin :) Everyone knows I get blastered on booze all the time

    You should read the whole thread before you download anything from Dylan.

    The guy is known for stealing cdkeys, hacking arma2, ddosing servers, etc.
