    I might be. Not till after 8pm though. Depends if i go out or not. So if you see me online then i'm staying in slaying zombies and will welcome an invite :smashin:

    Was playing last night actually. For some reason i couldn't pick up a weapon. everything i tried to grab was crossed off..weird. Also is there any decent weapons that last a fairly long time as the oars and sickles etc seem to disintegrate rapidly

    Another thing. Can i carry more than one weapon as i seem to pick up rakes of oars and pipes but don't know how to change. I don't remember seeing a change weapon button in the config and the mouse scroll wheel doesn't seem to do anything?

    You can hold something like 8 Weapons, i use an Xbox 360 controller and i just hold down left bumper and it brings up a hud type menu thing where i can just move the stick and it will select the weapon i want

    The “Bloodbath Arena” DLC will be released on 22nd November!
    Try to survive in four different arenas - each arena offers you new challenges that can be played alone or in coop mode. Fight against endless waves of zombies and gather XP and items for your character and bring them over to your campaign!

    Anyone had problems trying to change their display settings? I'm unable to change any settings apart from full screen, hz and Vsync. And Vsync isn't working as it still runs at 250fps with it turned on, meaning my graphics card fan is going into overdrive.

    All of the other options are greyed out, texture quality, shadows etc.

    So right now, I can only play if I want my card to be on the verge of melting because I can't change the settings to stop the FPS getting so high.

    Edit: Found a guide to editing the video settings manually, whacked up the settings and vsync, all fine now :)

    Any way of stopping randoms from joining your game? Can't seem to turn multiplayer off.

    You can change the number of public slots in the options.

    Got it how I like it:

    Vanilla (no tweaks)
    Steam Community :: stomprnm2 :: Screenshots

    Enable V-Sync and Disable Bloom
    Steam Community :: stomprnm2 :: Screenshots

    Reduce Bloom (whats left over)
    Steam Community :: stomprnm2 :: Screenshots

    Disable Desaturation Effect

    Steam Community :: stomprnm2 :: Screenshots

    Vanilla the game is too bright for my taste's.

    I would also apply an FoV to around 80, but from shot's I have seen when it is raining in the game, it'll make it look a little silly as the rain seems to only show in the standard FoV.

    But it now looks much better for me, cheers :smashin:

    You can turn multiplayer off mate. Your probably looking at the arrow on the right to turn it off, but thats greyed out. It's the arrow on the left to change it to singleplayer. I had to figure that one out too :smashin:

    tris

    EDIT: Looks like I have no choice of people seeing my Steam name here. Ah well, if you add me on Steam, just let me know via pm on AVF that you have added me so I know who you are and I'll accept, as I usually just ignore names I dont recognise.

    Nope, both arrows are greyed out. Game type, visibility, public slots, private slots and VAC secure game have greyed out arrows on both sides so I can't change any options.

    As it stands, I'm not going to be playing Dead Island unless I want to disconnect from the internet everytime. What a joke.

    You can do just what LFB said :)

    If it's all greyed out, does it not state your on single player at the top of the screen?

    Only before you press "Continue" to go into the game. Once you've loaded your game, you're stuck with the display settings and player settings until you quit. Awful game design in my opinion. Especially not being able to change graphics mid-game.
