    Indeed, Stable has just got a new patch it seems, basically updates it to the latest Experimental version.

    Changelog: http://pastebin.com/987ZCedL

    Finally! Seems like it's been put off forever. I'd been taking a break until Stable was updated and it was getting a little worrying.

    I think they were being a bit too cautious to be honest, but after the FPS VRam bug and the issues it caused I can't really blame them.

    Just hope they get experimental patched as well, as it stands they are on the same build but only the stable servers are up. So that means anyone wanting to play with their experimental characters can't.

    Patch looks good. heart attacks a little concerning. Does anyone know what terms are needed to have a heart attack?

    No idea, had a bit of a look but there doesn't seem to be any concrete info. Just another reason to carry a defib I guess.

    I just played a bit, got session lost a few too many times before my character went bye bye. Not a huge loss and freed me up to do a bit of looting. DayZ takes with one hand, but gives with the other as I found THE TACTICAL BACON!!! :thumb: :rock:

    Our group had some real issues with lag and odd sync issues today, across 3 different servers.

    Yeah there are on going issues at the moment, according to Hicks on twitter, they are using experimental servers internally to try and find a solution.

    The updated zombies make the game unplayable for me.
    There new sprint thing they can do should not be in the game in its current unstable form.
    Going in buildings was glitchy with zombies as it is, but now they can sprint through the walls and just whack you with no warning.

    When zombies are agro'ed, they spawn all around you, and very close making it once you have agro, you can get rid of it as they will keep spawning in front of you.

    Cannot wait till rocket leaves the dev team.

    Well he sticking around until Beta, so by the time he gone any features he added will still be on.

    hopefully the other team are face palming all this horrible stuff rocket is doing to the zombies and will revise his mistakes

    I dont mind having super zombies. But no way can it be a sensable idea to imploment them while the following is stuff a massive issue:

    Ignoring walls
    Massive desync
    Kill one zombie, another spawns right in front of you. (making shooting zombies pointless as you are just wasting ammo, they will never stop coming while you have agro)

    Dev's have added loads of good stuff and really liked DayZ after the new big patch, until they did the super zombie and desync/lag patch the other day which made the game unplayable.

    I've also had some ridiculous situations with zombies. It's near impossible to melee them for me as they'll lag around, at times moving extremely slowly and then teleporting randomly to make up for it. And the spawning itself is even more of a placeholder than I was expecting, just constantly popping up in the middle of no where.

    There are some good new things. The weather sync is great to finally have in, the day/night cycle is functioning again. And the 10/22 looks and sounds completely spot on.

    I can't believe this project has been executed so badly. To not even get the zombies, and the combat functional by now is pathetic. Who do they think they are? EA?

    It really seems like one step forward, then one step back. This shambles of a game is going nowhere fast.

    Sure changes are made and bugs are fixed, you start to get your hopes up... But then quickly met with new issues and poorly thought out rushed implementations, that leave you thinking "how can they be this bad at game development, are they acutely trolling us all?".

    B-b-but its alpha..... Games in testing stage make progression. DayZ has made little to none. Its been almost 5 months now!

    What's scary is that they weren't expecting it to be such a big hit on release, imagine what the state of the game would be if it didn't have such a successful day 1 release...

    I have said this to a few people, forget adding new content. Bikes/Bows etc fix the main issues first. Desync/zombies and then fix the rest of this hash of a game.

    I got bored quickly. I have a reasonably geared character just sitting waiting to play but I just cannot be bothered.
