Dean Hall playing Kronskys SP?!

I don't know. But I remember Kronsky beeing the only one working on the SP, I also remember faintly that Dean Hall said that it was a project beyond his plans.

I'm not trying to prove anything really, I just saw the video, and realized he was playing DayZ SP, then what I remembered crossed my mind.

Wow!

I just noticed something too!
UnPBO the dayz_code.pbo in DayZ. Go into compile and open up player_switchModel.sqf.

You'll see some coding for Single player already there!

It basically detects if you are in single player or not, and if you are, sets your player UID to 42. Looks like Rocket has started work, eh?

For those of you who do not want/cannot open the pbo, here is the raw code.

private ["_playerUID"];
	_playerUID = "";
	if (count playableUnits == 0 and isServer) then {
		//In Single Player
		isSinglePlayer = true;
		player sidechat "Single player Mode detected!";
		//_id = [42,"SinglePlayer"] spawn server_onPlayerConnect;
		_playerUID = "42";
	} else {
		_playerUID = getPlayerUID player;
	};

Oh yeah, didn't really bump into this myself. But it sure looks like he had some plans.

Way back when, Rocket said that he would like to include single player in DayZ.

On a related note, Kronzky has played DaiZy.

Oh yeah, but he didn't seem to be writing one. When I saw the video, and that he was playing SP, the first thing that hit me was "Kronkys release!" xD

That would make him the biggest hypocrite, so I'm hopefully wrong for the sake of his reputation.

i think this vid was made when rocket was supporting SP. and kronzky

then the issue with rocket saying he took the files down because kronzky was misusing or doing\releasing things he had asked him not to then he locked SP altogether and scrapped all plans for SP apperently because it was a hackers testing grounds.

i remember reading rockets reply to why he removed SP he said that he had givin kronzky access to all his dayz files and that they had an aggreement and that kronzky broke that aggreement basicly.

this was just what i rememberedd reading at that time

It was supposed that hackers were testing out scripts on SP, but I've never seen any evidence of that. Kronzky's release was basically ten lines of code, so I hardly think it was beyond the skill of the hackers to implement that themselves.

Kronzky wrote an account of his dispute with Rocket and it's a bit different from Rocket's version. Obviously it's just he said/she said, but it's clear that there was a little more to it than it initially appeared.

I haven't ever talked to Rocket, but I have talked to Kronzky. I won't reveal any contents of my discussions with him, but he strikes me as a jolly decent chap and I'm more inclined to accept his version of events.

I know a surprising amount of people in the games industry (it surprises me that I know any) and a few of them have met Rocket. They haven't exactly reported the experience to me in the most glowing tones. But I don't really care if people are dicks or not, as long as I enjoy their work. Conversely, one time I hung out with Tom Cruise all night at an MTV party (ugh) and he was a delightful and charming fellow whom I liked a lot.

This post was updated on .
yea i am more to beleive kronzkys side aswell i had read his version aswell at that time. i just was posting my earlier post as to why rocket may have been using kronzkys sp version was because at one time he did support SP and kronzky SORT OF lol.

and i also thought the same about hackers using SP lol always knew that was just a scapegoat because hey who doesnt hate a hacker so if rocket says hackers are using SP everyone will aggree with him taking it down.

and wow really tom cruise? thats pretty cool he was hillariouse in tropic thunder.

Thanks to lack of work, and Battleye beeing garbage, people could just test their scripts online. That was a weak argument by Rocket.

I remember reading somewhere that the one thing keeping modders from fixing the zombies' behaviour (aka attacking only the player) is that the player doesn't have his own ID, not being in MP.
So he has a unique ID after all?
