Are you trying to play on servers local to you?

You can check if your connection is poor outside of DayZ by finding the IP address of the server you want to play on and enter it on www.just-ping.com.

Yea check your internet speed on a speed test website. Choose a server close to you, but not in the same state as game servers are usually in a different state. Example I live in northwest florida, and I choose an atlanta georgia server to test.

My download speed is 22 download, and like 5 upload. Also it helps to know what you should be getting, so if there's a problem with your connection you can know if you're not getting the speeds promised, or you're paying for.

An example of problems you might have if you're not getting the required speeds can be from various things. Some troubles I've had in the past were they didn't have enough nodes to support the high traffic volume the neighborhood had, so at times I would get the speeds I was suppose too, but when everyone was on I was getting HORRIBLE speeds getting kicked from games all the time. Another problem could be water in your connection box outside, or something wrong with the lines inside your house could be old, and corroded, etc. It's probably something you might have to call your company about, or just choose a server closer to you.

It could also be your firewall, or your router. Some people do what's called port forwarding to make their speeds faster. If you have a router they usually have firewalls as well.


I use http://www.speedtest.net/ to check my speeds.

You can't believe people are trying to find solutions to their problems? Not everyone is computer technical, or know even the first thing about computers. Don't be an asshat.

Trying to find solutions? You mean asking someone else to find it for them? Yeah.

Let's get one thing straight... DayZ isn't exactly mario in terms of simplicity. Actually playing it requires some degree of intelligence AND judging by the amount of trouble people have with actually installing the damn thing it does require being "computer technical" in a way.

No, what I don't like is people being plain too lazy to try to figure things out on their own and immediately ask for help with even the most basic of things.

I haven't got the game, but yea I agree you have to have some computer technicallity to even play PC games, and install this mod. However that doesn't mean a person couldn't do it that's less then technical with computers using a guide with pictures.

Also as for the ping thing that's really based on experience I wouldn't know any of what I had described in my post unless I had to go through it, or read it from some forum.

However I do agree people should stop being lazy, and learn something on their own, because asking other people you definitely don't learn as much if you were to do it own your own. However I don't agree with people posting useless stuff in a topic where there's no reason to post only to flame someone, or get their post count up.

I had this problem yesterday too when I began playing Dayz for the first time. The game was laggy and loading times were incredebly long. On the lobby it showed me good ping but ingame it was incredebly high.
Was seraching for a fix for hours and here is what did fixed it for me.

Give your firewall full acces to Arma2 exes + sixupdater if you using that.

Does that help ?

DayZ kinda internet hungry compared to other games. When I play myself I get some really bad lags in cities with many zombies due to the fact that zombies are computed on the players PC and their actions get uploaded to the server. So if your connection is slow enough you're not really able to play dayz without a very high ping in some situations. Search a server without ping limit and you will be fine.

My connection: 50kbs down; 8kbs up. Not even worth to be called DSL, lol.

@guys with nice connection above
you may not believe but there are ppl outside your sweat home that dont have access to a fast connection.

I will help you.
Ping varies wildly from game-to-game.
I would suggest you to keep the following instructions while playing online game.
1.Don't open any videos,stream and check if there any problem in your router.
2.Make sure there's no browser .exe's still running in task manager
3.Try to contact your internet service provider and get suitable data plan.
4.Move closer to server
I am sure,if you follow the rules,you will get chance to reduce your ping rate.Finally you can check whether it's your ping is reduced or not using Whoisxy.com

DayZ Commander takes away all the effort of installing it, now. All you have to do is press one button and it does it for you, really. In retrospect, isn't that what computers were supposed to do in the first place?

Why and how exactly did you manage to revive a thread that's 8.5 months old and where the starter hasn't been online since?
