    I am extremely confused when it comes to what files I will need and how to set them up to play unleashed as a single player mission, any help?

    I have tried a couple times, even though I have set up others, this is the only one I haven't been able to. Vegalyp has one set up on his pc, if you pm'd him he might help if he has time. I wish we had some instructions / files here on the forums.

    Hmmm, good question. Xyberviri and I were discussing this and we think it would be easy to do with a few mods and tweaks. There would be no database really unless you set that up.

    In theory:

    You could have a local server on your machine and then join the server directly, however you need to have two copies of Arma installed.

    thanks for all the help! though would the local server cause the whole wifi network to be slow? and are there any kind of guides to go along with setting up some sort of local or private server with the mod? thanks

    I don't notice any slowness on a local server. No guides for setting up the Unleashed mod. I screwed up the database last time I tried. I will post something if I get time to try again. Good luck.

    Actually there is or about as much as you need really, but this is how I setup a server from scratch. This is from memory, I do not have a server running right now so let me know if this does not work for you.

    Install Arma 2 and Arma 2 OA, run both until you get to the main menu.

    If you want to roll your own mod of Unleashed get the source here: thevisad/DayZUnleashed ยท GitHub Site URL: https://github.com/thevisad/DayZUnleashed you are on your own with this, but it's pretty much pbo the individual folders and follow the directions listed below.
    to PBO the source -> CPBO ArmA mods | kegetys.fi Site URL: http://www.kegetys.fi/category/gaming/armamods/
    If you are using any other PBO tool then you will likely have issues, this is the only one I have ever used.

    Here is the "official" server release and is what is available in the downloaders.
    DayZ Unleashed Server Files Site URL: http://www.hngamers.com/resources/dayz-unleashed-server-files.10/

    The last version (99) is here with all the updates we made, this is basically a completely different mod then the "official" above and the one I would recommend. If you want the "official" keyed version you will need to download the folder 0.99 from the site with the bisign folders in it. This is the one that is available via our downloader and what Kelley has been playing and used to. These are signed with our keys, so will be considered official if you use our key.
    Index of /dayz/unleashed Site URL: https://files.hngamers.com/dayz/unleashed/
    Client is @DayZUnleashed.0.99.zip

    Download the server file, client file and SQL files and then do the following.

    Install MySQL or MariaDB and set it up properly.
    Create a mysql user called dayzserver@locahost with whatever password
    Create a mysql database called dayzunleashed (or whatever, just remember this for the hiveext.ini file below)
    Import the SQL file into the database
    Extract the contents of the server file and the client file to your "server" install folder.
    Extract the contents of the client file to your "client" install folder.
    Edit Restarter.ini and put in the path to your arma 2 and arma 2 oa folders where it states.
    Edit unleashed\HiveExt.ini and config.cfg and insert the proper settings
    Extract the mission file and adjust any settings you want for the mod in the init.sqf file.

    Thanks! I will try this again. Don't know why it wouldn't work before. Maybe I had the files mixed up. I am setting up on my pc though. Don't know if you have a recommendation for tools to use..... I have always used xampp and Heidi.

    I think Kelley ran into a few problems with the config file I put in there. I will work with him and make changes to the files/post as needed.
