There's an app for updating ARMA2 and it's mods. It's also a server browser. it's called 'Six Updater'. Found it tonight. works flawlessly. does everything for you.

Just click on a server. It gives you an option to update to that particular version. awesome.

Was using an Arma2 launcher which was quite good, but that Six Updater sounds even better. I'll try it out shortly, cheers.

EDIT: FINALLY got it working...Six Updater works nice, cheers.

Ok, i assume if i run the browser/launcher, and lick on a dayz server, it updates everything needed?

I keep getting "waiting for server" or "receiving data." Sometimes i can see some scenery, but i haven't actually managed to spawn yet...

EDIT: ok it finally worked. Now how do i get rid of that annoying blur on everything. Are there eyeglasses to find, lol?

Make sure the 3d resolution option in game is set to the same as your game resolution.

Along with the 3d res, turn off or download post processing in the graphics details.

i used this guide Arma 2 : DayZ installation in 2 minutes - YouTube
and now run the "six launcher" which lists servers nice and neatly and gives you the option to update if ever a patch comes out, nice n simple

Yeh I finally turned down post-processing and the 'glare' disappeared. Much better.
