Tofu Zombies is a mod I created a long time ago, as a merge between the other 2142 zombie mods, but eventually grew into my own mod, and I removed the content from the other mods.

The mod includes:
-New Zombie Weapons by me.

-A new game mode: 'Infection' (Special Thanks to Frosted Freeze [Freeze 18] for creating this python for me. I couldn't have this game mode without your help :D)!

-A load of community made custom maps (Not taken from other mods. Found on various sites for use by anyone).

-New Skins by me.

-A new skinned menu and new menu, loading, win, and loss music.

-"What sets this zombie mod apart from the other battlefield zombie mods?"

Tofugames wrote:Well, to be frank, it's not as in depth as any of the bf2 ones. I just don't know enough or have enough time to do that. In terms of the 2142 ones, Tofu Zombies is different because when I changed it from being a combination of Zombie Community and the original zombie mod it was because I wanted to make a more realistic zombie mod. This mod gives zombies realistic weapons (no flame throwing hands, or laser shooting mouths) but also gives them unique weapons (claws, and the different knives). The survivors have kits built around giving each different kit a tactical advantage over the others. When playing as a squad against a large number of zombies in a high zombie ticket game, your squad will succeed best and be the most effective with an equal balance of kits. You can't defend yourself well without using the sniper and engineer kits, and without support and medic you will all die or run out of ammo. The aim of my mod is to give a more realistic experience and difficulty, not just a bunch of chaotic zombie slaughters. And that is what sets this mod apart from the other 2142 zombie mods.

I have had many people tell me that the mod crashes a while they are
playing, the fix for all of them has been the same. READ THE README!
So be sure to read the readme if the mod crashes a lot and make sure
you are setting up a game correctly!! If you already deleted the
readme, it can be found here:

***Tofu Zombies 1.0 has been released!***

***Tofu Zombies Patch 1.0.5 has been released and is now available to download!***

Hello everyone,

I'm not sure who all is active in the 2142 modding community here on Moddb anymore, and I'm not sure if anyone will even see this, but I figured I'd share anyways. I recently had some free time and an urge to fire up 2142 and my old mod, but I had forgotten about the Gamespy shutdown and realized, to my disappointment, that I could not play... So I fixed it.

I had previously read about the DeathLok clan managing to setup and run their own emulated version of the EA Master Server for 2142, and while that seemed like an adequate fix for the time being I figured it would only be a matter of time before that server goes dark as well. So I did some research into how I might be able to fix the game myself to allow for booting into offline mode (without needing to first disable your internet connection) and after a few attempts I managed to make the necessary edits to the 2142 executable to achieve my goal.

I'm not going to upload my fix just yet as I'm still doing some testing to make sure it is working, but I plan to release here shortly. I will likely upload a new version of the mod that is a complete package so that it is no longer necessary to install the patch and this new version will come bundled with my 2142 offline only fix. I will also upload the fix sperately, because I know it will be useful to people who don't want to play this mod.

I hope that this fix will allow anyone who wants to continue to play this game to do so long into the future! Battle on!

Note: If you want to download the fix immediately, you can check out this thread on Battlefield Singleplayer where I have posted it for testing:

has anyone got any dedicated servers up for this?

the reason why I ask is that my BF2142 game is temperamental on my system for some reason (my system specs are more than enough to run the game) but it always crashes whenever I try and create a game. though it runs fine if I join a server...

Does it crash when you try to create a server on vanilla (un-modded) 2142 as well? If not, here is something you can try: Go into My Documents, then into the 2142 folder, then into the mods folder, and finally find and delete the Tofu_Zombie folder from inside of there. Now try running the mod again. If that doesn't work I'm not quite sure what the problem could be..

Tofu, now with the new patch, everything is working fine, great mod dude, by the way, the fist sound or I dunno the empty hand attack sounds like a bullet hitting the ground... is that normal?
Ow, and nice background music, and I loved the zombie animation instead of the walker one while loading, funny one.
And the Zombie tips doesn't work, it doesn't crash but it does nothing for now, is that normal?

Sound: Yes that is normal. I'm trying to find a replacement.

Zombie Tips: Yes, I haven't added the actual video yet. Just re-named the button. ;)

I'm glad to hear that everything is working! :D

my BF2142 stopped working, it would get into log in screen for EA account, i would log in and select my soldier but when i try to log into the soldier, it would stall, i even tried making a new soldier and that stalled too. i am using Windows 7 64 bit and patched it to the beta patch 1.51

This is a problem that many people are experiencing with 2142 right now. It is not a problem with the mod, but with EA's servers. It will log you in but takes 5-8 minutes to do so.

Ok I think I know your problem. To play alone go to multiplayer, then click on local and create a server from there. Singleplayer itself does not work. ;) I will clarify this in the hotfix.

Yes, but as of now there is not a server that runs it. Well, actually there is, but it has not updated, so as of now, not that I know of unless another clan puts one up. However, if you know how to play 2142 over Hamachi, then that should work.

Hey dude, I even couldn't play the mod, because when I skip the intromovie, it crashes, and when I manage after several tries, and I hit LOCAL, it crashes!, what's happening?, I'm using battlefield 1.50, vista 32bit, and my computer can run bf2142 at all high...

I installed your newest version of the mod, and seems freaking awesome, but I can't even play it...

Hmm I am not sure what is happening.. Try uninstalling the mod and re-installing it. Check in the following folder: C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Battlefield 2142\mods and if you see a tofu_zombies folder after running the uninstaller (found in your start menu under the tofu zombies mod folder) then delete that and re-install the mod. If that does not solve your problem then please try starting 2142 normally, going into the community tab, clicking on custom games, and then running the mod from there. If it still crashes, then I would try updating 2142 to BETA patch 1.51.

Ok, I'll try that, but about that beta patch, is it safe to use it?, and if I install that patch, will I still be able to play on the other servers of the original bf2142??

That's really strange. Have you tried re-installing the mod? Does it crash with every map or only a certain one? Does your vanilla 2142 work correctly? The only thing I can think to suggest would be a complete re-install of 2142.. But that's a real pain, so I will keep thinking up possible fixes.

it crashes when I hit local, every time, or if I'm very unlucky when I hit the escape button, it crashes (in the intro).
