Tried everything/Need solution/Can't launch Daizy

Makaveli
Hi, I've re-installed the entire Arma 2 package (including oa) multiple times while trying to get Daizy to work. I'll try and explain the best I can;

Originally, I followed the tutorial that is posted here; http://kodabar-dayz-daizy-single-player-forum.1084782.n5.nabble.com/RELEASE-DaiZy-Chernarus-1-7-6-1-FACTIONS-2-1-06-07-FINAL-RELEASE-td4144.html and everything worked fine, except that I was never able to launch the game.

I then tried going a couple different routes, and checked out different tutorials, including the one here; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYxsR1E6Ahc and then I was able to launch a server, although I was stuck at the spawn point, unable to move.

Lastly, I tried using older files, and different tutorials once again, and finally I was able to launch the game, and everything working fine except for one slight problem, nothing was in the game except for me... No zombies, no npc's/ai, no nothing... -_-

Throughout my other failed attempts, I got several errors, pretty much everything from "You cannot play/edit this game due to deleted dayz files" or something like that. And even a couple simple errors that told me direct x 9 was not present, even though it is. Most problems only came after the update of the oa beta updater. But I think I was supposed to do that anyway? "I think".

I honestly tried pretty much everything, and followed most tutorials I could find, and now I am hoping someone can help by actually telling me what to do. I now have the most recent Daizy factions files (2.1) and most recent DayZ files as well (1.7.7). I also have the Arma 2 oa beta updater and practically everything else from all my failed attempts. I think I have everything necessary, and now just need someone to help guide me a bit more precisely. I will now just wait for a response, and I'll have the Arma 2 and its oa with their natural files, no dayz or daizy installed or present, so everything will be ready.

Thanks in advance, I hope this can get solved.

I'm not sure why it's not working, as I've never seen that error to start off with.

But I'd suggest downloading DayZ Commander and install the real DayZ, go on a server and see if it works, if that works, we're 1 step closer. I can guide you from there, probably.

Well damn Above, that was fast..

And that's funny, because that's actually what I decided to do right after I started the thread. In other words, I already have dayz commander and used the most recent day z version (1.7.7). It worked, but that's when my main problem comes in. My internet isn't exactly "fantastic", and therefor lags a lot. Which is one of the main reasons I am trying to use Daizy, and because it overall looks more user friendly than the original. So while the real DayZ did work, if possible, I'd still really like to use the daizy mod... So, whats next?

Haleks, that's perfect. I understand exactly what to do now and fixed the problems, except that now there's a new one. Every time I start up operation arrowhead I get the error "Error creating Direct3D 9 Graphical engine" and the game won't launch... I think if we were able to fix that, everything else would work as its supposed to.

Woo that's odd, I never had this kind of error...
Have you updated your game? Are your graphic card drivers up to date?

Haleks, I was actually able to bypass it... Not sure how, but I did. Everything then launches, and I am able to finally start daizy, but once again, i'm lonely. No zombies/survivors in the bandit version, and in the regular version its even stranger.. The only zombie I found was underground, only half of its body visible, but I did see a rabbit as well. So it seems that some models are loading, but incorrectly. Progress has been made, but i'm completely lost. Any ideas?

I actually just found something else out, when I first start up the oa beta patch, it says "No entry 'bin\config.bin/cfgammo/melee.model'.". Regardless the game works, and when I go to a mission and choose one DaiZy starts and asks me to choose my gender, there's a pop up message that says "Resource title TitleScreen not found". And lastly, when I exit the game it then says "You cannot play/edit this mission; it is dependent on downloadable conten that has been deleted.dayz". Maybe that's why there's no zombies? These 3 errors are the last problems..I think.

Hell that's confusing : it says it misses some dayz files, wich would mean you're not launching daizy properly, but on the other hand, zombies do seem to pop up in your game...
Do you have all the dayz files in the addons folder inside your @daizy folder? You should have 9 pbo files in there:
dayz
dayz_anim
dayz_code
dayz_communityassets
dayz_equip
dayz_factions
dayz_sfx
dayz_vehicles
dayz_weapons

Haleks, I didn't have all the files for some reason. I figured that out right before you mentioned it, already fixed that, and now zombies are finally in the world! Although, of course, more problems. Everything runs smoothly, and zombies are in both the world and the main menu, but now the problem are bin files. Apparently, while I just now played the game, when i found a girl bandit 2 messages popped up, one saying something about not being able to load a woman bandit, and the other saying it was not being able to load her gun. So, i'm guessing the files in the bin are either corrupted or not present. Should I try and add all the missing files like we just did, but instead of the direct daizy folder, the bin itself? Where can we find those files?

Could you provide me with the exact messages please?
That would help to identify the problem ;)

Alright, Honestly I think there's lots of missing bin files, but I don't know. Just now, I started up daizy and everything's fine. In about 3 minutes of playing time, it seems that I should've encountered a bandit, but it couldn't load, leading to the error "Cannot open object dayz\characters\man_bandit.p3d" popping up. Later, while running around a house, I get the error "No entry 'bin\config.bin/CfgWeapons.MR43'." After that, I couldn't find any other errors, but I did get shot at! Not sure what the hell shot me though, assuming zombies haven't learned how to, it must mean some bandit/survivor models are able to load, some can't.

Some of the modified addons are running cpp instead of bin files, but it has never been a problem.
Assuming that you followed every step of Astocky's video, my guess is that you have some corrupted files in there - you might try to re-download dayz and re-do the install :/

Ok, but before I do that, is there any way I can download and replace/add onto the missing bin files? Or am I forced to re-installing arma 2 & oa and then following each step again of the installation of dayz/daizy? I'd like to try and add the missing files first, or just completely replace them, if possible.

Just re-download the particular DaiZy release and replace the needed files.

But ray, the files it keeps telling me that are missing are the .bin files, or character models. If I redoes load the daizy files (1.7.7 Factions) it only contains adding and missions, not models and the other stuff I need. Therefore not fixing the problem, I think..

Well, then you need to re-download ArmA 2 & OA.

Did you download DayZ 1.7.7? (Not the faction release). You need the actual mod before you replace files with Haleks files.

The models and everything is in those files.
