Play withSIX DayZ 1.7.2.5 (PreRelease) support!


We're currently still not authorized by DayZ team to push 1.7.2.5 en-mass, as such we've added multi-version support to Play withSIX.

A new update for Play withSIX has been released that supports the DayZ v1.7.2.5 pre-release mod version!
You can control which mod version to use in the Game section option "Update to PreRelease versions" (for now restart after changing).

Currently there are no plans to add this support to SIX Launcher and Updater, as full focus is on Play withSIX which replaces SIX Launcher already, and will soon replace SIX updater also.

Enjoy!

Play withSIX Community Preview released!

Check out Play.withSIX.com

Introduction

Play withSIX is a brand new application, providing several new features, some of which are unseen before,
while others are majorly enhanced compared to our previous projects, namely SIX Launcher.
One of many new features and enhancements are the included social features like buddy list, see your friends playing and join them, or have a chat.

All presented in a brand new UI and improved user experience.

With the community preview we would like to gather feedback, bug reports, and basically test our new code base and infrastructure.
In the coming weeks we will be releasing fixes and improvements based on your valued feedback,
While design and functionality is also still being improved and finalized.

Also, starting at a future milestone release, we will start introducing functionality that has currently only been available in SIX Updater,
eventually making the old tools obsolete.


Noteable changes in usage/behavior compared to SIX Launcher

  • The software no longer forces or requires Administrator rights to run or operate.
    (Though if you wish to install to protected folders, currently you'll have to run the program manually as admin, or change the permisssions)
  • The default Mod installation path has moved to the My Documents\ArmA 2 folder, the by BI recommended location for custom files
  • Verify is no longer a required step after each start of the program
  • The auto-update experience should be much enhanced
