Death Screen and sound
v1.0

What it does: Change your death screen, remove death music and add sound so all players can hear your favorite song, even if they turn all music off

What do You need:
compiles.sqf
player_death.sqf
description.ext
custom texture .paa (2048x1024) -not included, you can make this with GIMP or Photoshop + TexView2 (save as .paa from 2048x1024 .png)
custom sound .ogg (http://www.mediafire.com/download/85nokj45jsucckk/deathscreen.ogg)
How to install:
1. Grab compiles.sqf from your dayz_code.pbo and change
Code:
    player_death =                compile preprocessFileLineNumbers "\z\addons\dayz_code\compile\player_death.sqf";
to this
Code:
    player_death =                compile preprocessFileLineNumbers "whatyouwantfolder\player_death.sqf";

2. Grab player_death.sqf from your dayz_code.pbo and put in "whatyouwantfolder" in missions;
3. Open your description.ext and right after

Code:
class RscPicture
{
    access=0;
    type=0;
    idc=-1;
    style=48;
    colorBackground[]={0,0,0,0};
    colorText[]={1,1,1,1};
    font="TahomaB";
    sizeEx=0;
    lineSpacing=0;
    text="";
};

Add this for sound

Code:
class CfgSounds
{
sounds[] ={deathscreen};

class deathscreen
    {
    name="deathscreen";
    sound[]={deathscreen.ogg, db-6, 1};
    titles[] = {};
    };
};

Now right after your load screen

Code:
onPauseScript = "";
loadScreen = "load.jpg";

add this

Code:
class RscTitles
{
titles[] = {"DeathScr"};
class DeathScr {
  idd = -1;
  movingEnable = 0;
  duration = 10;
  fadein = 2;
  fadeout = 2;
  name="DeathScr";
  controls[]={"Picture"};
  class Picture {
    x = safezoneX; y = safezoneY; w = safezoneW; h = safezoneH;
    text="DeathScr.paa";
    sizeEx = -1;
    type=0;
    idc=-1;
    style=48;
    colorBackground[]={0,0,0,0};
    colorText[]={1,1,1,1};
    font="Bitstream";
  };
};
};

4. In your player_death.sqf find

Code:
_body setVariable["combattimeout", 0, true];

sleep 2;

1 cutRsc ["DeathScreen","BLACK OUT",3];


playMusic "dayz_track_death_1";

and add some changes

Code:
_body setVariable["combattimeout", 0, true];

sleep 2;

100 cutRsc ["DeathScr","BLACK OUT",3];

playSound "deathscreen";

Now find and remove all lines with "fadeSound" - so we can hear our custom sound.

5. Put your texture (.paa) and sound (.ogg) in mission
Ogg you can grab there http://www.mediafire.com/download/85nokj45jsucckk/deathscreen.ogg
And image you can make with GIMP or Photoshop and thru TexView2 save as "DeathScr.paa"!
Dimensions are 2048x1024 for better quality!

YAY!!! You install this!
