Are you definitely running as admin?
Check the topics in the forums, they may be of help. If not, can you start a topic and post as much info as possible.
:). We're actually rewriting the engine at the moment. One of the main things I'm doing is removing scripting and implementing a visual-scripting / state-machine based logic.
aka. A lot more powerful modding! Will be able to change the logic of everything in game to a far greater degree.
Yeh sorry about that :(. We've been crazy busy recently and haven't had much time to contribute towards ZG.
Lots of stuff going on behind the scenes now though :), should be some cool things to see soon.
(btw guys we've just been greenlit :3)
Apologies for the late reply. Can you post more information on exactly what happens in the forums please?
Master server threw a wobbly, should be back up now.
They ... may do ...
You can, hold shift.
Game currently already supports custom maps being uploaded to the games, different games modes and other such stuff.
Adding vehicles might be somewhat tricky though lol
Apologies. We aren't ignoring people, me and Jordan are just horrendously busy at the moment. I try to answer questions when I can.
If you need faster responses, shoot me a private message, chances are I'll respond faster as I get a notification email when I get one :)
Heh, pvp is definitely unbalanced when you start a new profile, the game has a pretty steep experience curve. Try the pve modes.
It's all in-game now, can purchase donator/premium/etc versions from the in-game shop.
Click "Open Editor" on the launcher, tada, map editor! wiki.zombiegrinder.com has a basic tutorial to setup a simple map.
Not sure what you replying to in this post XD. I hate the paging system on desura.
Post in forums for help, it's hard to help people with issues in the comments section as it dosen't pageinate correctly.
Thank you :)
Sorry, both me a jordan work crazy hours during the day :(, we try to expand as much as possible.
Community are free to make maps if they wish :)
We don't sell hats.
There are 3 official servers, running cost is about 100$ a month. We use linode.com for hosting.
It's free and always will be. There is the option to donate in game to cover running costs of servers etc, but its not required and doesn't give you any advantage.
We do :). Sorry for the late reply, been busy recently. I'll look into the points you made.
Huum, first shouldn't happen, I'll look into it.
Trading has always forced the user back to the main menu, though I agree its kinda weird now that we have the hub world. Will sort it out asap.
Read previous comments, virus flag is a false positive by avast. Try putting it in avast's whitelist and see if it works.
What happens when you try?
Ah I assumed you meant a map as you said "whenever I join".
Yeh I've been told about that. It's because the launcher-exe does something typical of malware droppers - it downloads executable code off the internet, installs it locally and runs it. It's how are patching system works. It gets picked up by avast's heuristic-based detection.
Nothing much I can do about that, sorry.
What map/server/etc where you joining?
Also the failed to install launcher update occurs when the game exe can't overwrite the launcher exe. Typically this is either because the game has not been run as admin, it dosen't have permissions to touch the exe or for some reason its still running in the background.
This seems to happen sporadically with the desura install, can you tell me what happens if you run from the stub available at zombiegrinder.com?
lol, sorry. I put a cap on the bank balance, to prevent ever-increasing interest causing the bank balance variable to overflow. I didn't think anyone would have more than 10m!
Just the random one.
It won't. ZG requires a dedicated graphics card, netbook will not cut it I'm afraid.
You soo need to learn to crop out the window borders jordan :P
1. Odd, dunno why. It's just off the shelf SMF. Verification answer is "Zombie Grinder", and text should just be a standard captcha. I'll see what I can to change things.
2. Odd, will look into that.
3. Servers can run without players, depending on how they are setup. And yeh, nobody has forwarded ports at the moment. Writing a patch at the moment that should use UPNP to automatically forward them.
4. I have no idea how that happens, will check.
5. That's just how the games graphics are rendered. Game resolution is 320x240, screen is stretched to fit whatever resolution your running under. Use a resolution with same aspect ratio and it should be ok. (Also if your forcing any texture filtering through nvidia/amd control panels that might screw with things, game is designed to be rendered without textures filtering).
Free. Will most likely be available from our site / desura. Would be interesting to get it on steam, but from what I've heard from other developers, seems a long shot.
