Arma 2 patch helps fix Day Z crashes

If Day Z has been a little too crashy for your liking, rejoice, for Arma 2 patch 1.62 has arrived with changes which developer Bohemia says "make zombie hunts much less prone to crashes and should improve server stability." Given that the smash hit mod has a whole new audience buying the military sim, it's only natural that it should get a little extra care and attention.

The full changelog is on the Bohemia forums, but here are the highlights:

  • Multiplayer optimizations, security and server improvements

  • Overall stability was improved with numerous tweaks and fixes

  • Added new video options (Post-Process Anti-Aliasing, Alpha To Coverage)

  • Additional AI improvements and numerous bug fixes

  • Resolved issues with several training missions

  • Added a lot of new script commands for content makers

You can download patch 1.62 here at Shacknews, but Steam users will need to wait for that edition to update automatically.

Day Z is such a romper-stomper of a success, with over 850,000 players, that it's looking to go standalone, perhaps even this year.
