Hi Guys,

This is an UPDATED version of my original installation video for the DayZ Modifcation for ArmA 2: Combined Operations.

This guide will work for STEAM / RETAIL / DIGITAL DOWNLOAD / MIXED PURCHASE copies of the game as well as resolves most of the issues people have with other methods of installation.

This process shows a MANUAL (the most reliable) install of the mod files and instructs viewers on the use of a launcher (mod manager) as well as installation of the latest ArmA Beta Patch to resolve critical bugs. There is a troubleshooting section at the end that will help you resolve most issues (hopefully).

If you have issues with the mod AFTER you've checked my troubleshooting section please post here or in the DayZ forums and someone will try to get back to you.

Thanks for the support so far guys, you've all been great.
