Hi DVS,
I moved your post as it was in the wrong section (combat arms forums)

Yes, there is a alternative to dayz launcher.

Download this windows batch file at the bottom of this post.

1. Things to pay attention to are:
The paths.... Path to steam and path to Arma 2... not arma 2 OA.

2. Ip and port. In this case its cherno

3. Mods... Each mod must be named in the batch file exactly the way the folder is spelled in your arma 2 OA folder.

also, dayz launcher might have the mods in a different folder, like in your documents.
To check this. open dayz launcher, click on settings, then click on open mod folder. If it opens your arma 2 OA folder, you're good to go. If it opens up another folder, you'll need to copy the mods you want and paste them in the Arma 2 OA folder.
Reason for this is, the batch file looks for the mods in the Arma 2 OA folder, and if they arnt there... game wont load properly.

If you have any problems, hop in TS and we'll give you a hand.

Duke
