Description

I logged into a server today and I was in Elektro. I was the day before so I assumed it was where I left off. I started to move out when I noticed I had gloves on. I thought it was from the last 2 people I killed. (Im not a bandit, they attacked me.) I was roaming around and I ran into a guy in an office building. He looked right at me and didn't notice me. I walked up to him but he never saw me. I shot him to see what would happen and I killed him. I picked up some loot and thats when I noticed I didn't have any bars in hearing or sight. I ran up to a Zed and it didn't do anything. I was confused so I left the server. I returned to a different server later and I was back where I originally started. I didn't have the stuff I found and was still invisible. I tried clicking respawn but I was sent to the Debug plains. I can't seem to get this to be fixed so any help would be nice. Thank you :)

This is a form of ghosting, it happens when your ARMA2 beta version does not match the same version as the server and has some weird side effects.

Known side effects of ghosting
1: Zombies and loot dont spawn near you.
2: Zombies dont notice when you attack them.
3: Sounds from you dont trigger zombies.
4: Depending on the version you can only be seen by people running the same beta version.
5: food and water levels do not go down.
6: no sound to the player who is ghosting.

the Version miss-match text sometimes loads but very lightly as a water mark not blacking out the screen.

That text is the beta version miss-match.
Arma2 beta download: http://www.arma2.com/beta-patch.php

it seems as if there is a issue with the way its enforced right now.

you can setup the six updater to update the beta patch at the same time by adding the mod
http://stats.six-updater.net/mods/show/100629c6-901f-11df-b234-001517bd964c

this will update the dayZ mod and the beta at the same time when needed.
