For standard DayZ Epoch please ensure you have the following parameters set: [email protected]_Epoch;@DayZ_Epoch_Server;
For client parameters you just need to have [email protected]_Epoch; set if you are running the game dirrectly through Steam.
However if you are using DayZ launcher or a simular third party launcher in most cases this will be set for you upon joining your server.
To set your launc options via steam:
- Find Arma 2 Operation arrowhead in your steam library.
- Right click and select set launch options
- Enter [email protected]_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 [email protected]_Epoch05
As third party launchers are starting to drop older versions such as 188.8.131.52 this method may be the only way to join servers running an older version, as such we reccomend updating to the newest version to ensure yourself and players have no issues connecting to your server.
