Go download it at http://www.dayzcommander.com :D

Here are just some of the features you'll get out of using it.
  • Stay up to date
    Be alerted when new versions of DayZ and the ArmA II beta are released. Commander will intelligently locate your game directory and install the updates with a single click. It will never force you to update DayZ or Arma2, you are in complete control of when you want to upgrade.
  • Server Filters
    Utilize Commander's filters to weed out undesirable servers. Ping, third-person mode, and time of day are all able to be used to narrow down to the perfect server.
  • Find your friends
    Easily add your friends, then see which servers they're on. It's great for groups that don't have allegiance to a single server and need to coordinate often.
  • Favorite Servers
    Favorite server functionality that doesn't suck. A separate panel will make joining your favorites faster without having to sift through the entire listing.
  • Recent Servers
    Can't remember which server you were on earlier today? or last week? Don't worry, all of your recent servers are stored so you'll never forget again.
  • Private Server Notes
    Want to remember where you put your tent? that GAZ? Or that bus? Keep per-server-notes to remember all of the important stuff.
In the interest of getting feedback as quick as possible, I've decided to release the beta to the public right now. Feedback is very much encouraged, so get downloading and let me know what you think!
This is very much a community product, so everyone's requests will weigh in on what gets developed next.

Read the post all about it from yesterday in case you missed it.

Please be aware this launcher was created by a member of the community so the DayZ team cannot help with or be held accountable for any problems caused by its use

Kudos for open source, extra kudos for having tests. Are you using the new Windows 8 stuff?



Suggestions:
1. A legend for the settings symbols would be good. I realize they are in the same order as the checkboxes, but I think there is room at the bottom for a legend (or put the symbols by the checkboxes). What is armor?
2. It would be nice to be able to select a time range instead of just day or night, for example, two text boxes where I can put "between 5pm and 10pm" or something. EDIT: Nevermind, I see the Day/Night column now.

Does the square in the checkbox mean "don't care"? It seems they are tri-state (checked, unchecked, or square).

Looks good though, thanks!

I'll beta test soon. I don't wanna touch a thing with Arma 2 until I'm done recording my sniping montage :)

So very good, A nice launcher that takes custom start up switches, I can even point it to my ram drive with textures and the DayZ mod. Plus a Friends list!!!! I haven't tired that yet though. Keep up the good work and THANKS again.

EDIT: It doesn't show my current version of DayZ as it is on a Ram drive. Not a big deal but maybe you could add a option to also set your DayZ directory along side the options to set you game paths.

Thanks! Nice catch, I'll fix that.

No, just looks like it should be in Windows8 because of the metro.
There is a tooltip over each of the icons.

The checkboxes are in fact tri-state, and yes the filled box means "Don't care".

Favorites, recent, and auto-updating are highest on the development list right now.

-loads faster than sixupdater
-have server time (choice to pick day or night)
-server setting very very nicely displayed.


better than sixupdater in every single way already.
no reason not to just use this over sixupdater.

what i want

-launcher arma 2 beta button and launch arma 2 none beta button that just gets you into menu. (im just nick picking because i keep my desktop very very clean as it have only 5 shortcuts)

wish a mod will sticky it.

if you really want your program to get known post on 4chan and reddit.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm not sure we'll be able to add that feature anytime soon, but I'll make a note of it.

Six Launcher is the most over-engineered piece of software... ever.

Six Launcher is clunky and takes a shit load of time to load up.... and that damn button KEEPS ASKING to verify.
i already uninstalled six launcher after dling and using this.
 
dot you probably need to keep this bumped till a mod/staff gets on to sticky this.
