    Just read through the entire thread. Looks like there is a LOT of bickering regarding where the code came from. A lot came from DayZ Redux without Venthos, the author, ever knowing about it. Supposedly it was submitted anonymously. Not sure when this update is going to be released as certain things like the combat system are a bit buggy and can cause server instability. Venthos was working on updates for the combat system but was unable to communicate that to the DayZ Community team since he had no knowledge such project had even started.

      ... I think they worked all that out as the day went on. I would not hold my breath, though. The notes look good but I bet it will be a while before they let it loose.

            Oooh cool, so if you alt-F4 in combat, you die. Maybe that'll teach those exploiters that they can't dodge death. Though, I'll hate not being able to do that when my tractor glitches into the tree roots and explodes randomly. :D

              FYI: for now it is only sending out a public message that ALT-F4era "Combat Logged".

              It also seems like only a few servers have updated. There may be other bugs. Thankfully, DayZ Commander allows for relatively quick roll-back. (The 1.7.3 files are not available for manual install)

                I won't be playing for the next couple of weeks. Got a fantastic new rig, but it seems my motherboard is toast. That's why I get for buying Newegg Open Box. Hope you guys have fun.

                  Aw man! I know how you feel, had a board with bad gfx controllers, thankfully the company I was dealing with sent a replacement quickly. Don't want to piece together the old rig?

                    I'm on the line with Asus right now getting it sorted out. Also will be on later tonight on old rig.

                      Really like the looks of this update. I get tired of people shooting at me, they miss, and as soon as they get shot at, log.

                          Great tks Bear. Suppose my tent full of goodies in the bottom floor of the tower will now disappear. Wonder what will happen to the tents in the water at the dam. Just curious…if anyone checks it out please post.

                            Unless those, or any tents for that matter, had items put INTO them, and saved, in the last few weeks they are gone.

                              [FIXED] Building checks for tent placement (No longer place tents in buildings).

                              Update did not remove tents already placed on concrete or in buildings. Bottom floor Rog's Castle tower has tent with some beginning items including medical and food. Note someone has taken the DMR…enjoy.
