    Hey 4Gain

    The first thing you need to be aware of is that Panthera is currently running 1.0.3 and that Chernarus is running 1.0.3.1 so you will need to switch between the versions according to which you would like to play.

    If that doesn't work you should try the following:

    1. Right Click Arma 2/Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead
    2. Click on Properties
    3.Go to the Local Files tab
    4.Click Verify Integrity of Game Cache
    5. Prepare to wait 10-15 minutes while it checks.
    6. Run both games for first time setup


    Once that checks out go into DayZ commander and uninstall DayZ Epoch, next you want to install the correct version of Epoch according to which server you are currently playing ( See above for versions.)

    If you are wanting to play the DayZEpoch Panthera server you will need the launch parameters here:

    [email protected]; @DayZ_Epoch

    You will also need the Panthera Map downloaded.

    Hope this helps!

    I cant seem to find the "Local file tab"?
    Keep in mind i do NOT have the steam version of arma, i have the GOG.
    Could you give me a direct "go to" like /C: program files / ???

    I think you need to post this in the Day Z section.
