For standard DayZ Epoch please ensure you have the following parameters set: -mod=@DayZ_Epoch;@DayZ_Epoch_Server;
For client parameters you just need to have -mod=@DayZ_Epoch; set if you are running the game directly through Steam.
However, if you are using DayZ launcher or a similar third party launcher in most cases this will be set for you upon joining your server.
To set your launch options via steam:
- Find Arma 2 Operation arrowhead in your steam library.
- Right click and select set launch options
- Enter -mod=@DayZ_Epoch;
If you have decided to play an older version of Epoch you will need to navigate to your Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead folder, and ensure you haven't overwritten the @DayZ_Epoch folder with a newer version.
If you have, you can simply re-download it, rename it @DayZ_Epoch05 (Example, can be called anything) and change the command line to -mod=@Dayz_Epoch05
As third party launchers are starting to drop older versions such as 22.214.171.124 this method may be the only way to join servers running an older version, as such we recommend updating to the newest version to ensure yourself and players have no issues connecting to your server.
