Exclamation Beta Patch - Do Not Install

The new beta patch 94700 is very difficult to reverse and the majority of servers are not running it yet. So hold off on installing it until more servers are updated.

Thanks - another good reason to leave Dayz to the testers

The 1.7.2.1 patch for Day Z or the 94876 beta patch for Arma II?

I am assuming the Arma II Beta patch. DayZ Alpha is reversable but the Arma II one isnt.

After installing the Arma II Beta (it is build 94876) most servers are not enterable due to being a different version. The reason I can see is that all previous Arma II Beta patches are 1.60.**.*** , this new one is 1.61.94.876 , the 1.61 part seems to throw the game off.

EDIT: Actually, hold off the 1.7.2.1 - it's experimental, broken on purpose (Zombies no longer despawn on logout, creating excessive Zombie spawns), says please test this if you don't mind losing your gear as can bug to death on entering, though a chance your body with gear will spawn next to you - camo/ghillie is meant to be working but if you lost it by logging in during 1.7.2 you won't regain it.

Still can't 100% confirm the Arma II Beta part, all I notice is that with 1.7.2.1 and 94876 I can't select anything prior to 94876.. The same if I have 1.7.2 or 1.7.1.5 with this Arma II Beta patch, only shows the latest 1.7.2.1 servers as enterable, all others have the red X next to them and can't join.

And for my final edit - 1.7.2.2 will be released today says Rocket http://dayzmod.com/forum/index.php?/topic/28091-build-172-rolling-update/page__st__1360#entry298554

1.7.2.1 was never intended for public use.

Taken from the DayZ forum. If you need to revert back to 94700 and already with the very latest Beta.

New beta patch, 1.61 - Troubleshooting - Day Z Forums

Just incase it takes a while for people to update the servers to 1.61 (94876).

1.7.2.3 is official now. Seems to work ok...though I'm finding loot to be scarce...and massive zombie spawns. 0.0 Lost my primary - well, actually, it reverted back to the one I have b'for, but without the ammo.

I've been playing 1.7.2.3 as well for a few hours. Seems nice and stable. Also have the latest beta installed. As Coop said the loot seems scarce. Haven't actually found anything in a deer stand yet. I was killed by a bear trap though.

btw, can an admin please add the beta number 1.7.2.1 to the post title? I'm assuming this is what the thread is referring to.
