Zombies are Awesome. But who wants to be stuck in a building? Unlocking one room at a time? The ArmA 2 engine provides 1000km2 terrains in which to explore. My missions utilize this to create an epic zombie experience. Enjoy!

HUGE update! Fourth beta release of my mission. Focus on everything. I fixed quite a few bugs, and not all of them are on the changelog. Respawn, sidemissions, survivors, and more below.

What's fixed?

Stability has been increased, along with efficiency. Respawn was a big feature, and it works fully. When you die (and you sure will in this version) you respawn at a random town with a random gun, just like when you start. The ability to start together was a big request, which removes that fear of the beginning, but it's fun anyway, and as an option.

Construction allows you to build your own bases, more money cannot be obtain as of now, but that's for future.

Sidmissions bring longer playability, and unique rewards that can be fought over. Four sidemissions are in right now, and more are on the way. Currently there is: C130 crash, Ammo box drop, Horde infested base that can be captured and used as a safezone, and a horde that spawns at a town and needs to be neutralized

New method of spawning zombies. Towns will spawn more zombies than just the countryside. If you enter Rasman, Feruz, or any other town, chances are you will get swarmed. Makes vehicle finding a risk, and it's quite scary.

Different versions have been added for people with only certain versions of the game. Arma 2 free is supported for everyone who just wants to try it out: Arma2.com These versions will work with basic functionality, but more bugs might be present.

ACE version isn't complete yet, but will be released shortly.

Looks cool. Can you play it when my friend has A2 Free and I have ArmA 2 CO?

I'm pretty sure your friend is supposed to have the full game. The free version doesn't allow modding.

I wonder if you can instead drop the any Addon PBO's in the actual Arma2 Addons Folder instead of creating a separate mod folder and shortcut.
I used to do that with all my ArmA's before,
till i figured out the mod folder shortcut method.
Hopefully they haven't hardcoded it...

This is extremely good but the zombies are dumb as bricks and zig-zag like trolls. They also stand still and wait 6 seconds before slashing you from seemingly 10 feet away.

That said, at night time, with friends, during overcast, and fast time off, it is scary as HELL. My friends and I had a scenario that was basically blair witch project. We ran into a cabin and went inside and found a priest in there, my friend was using a priest skin so I thought it was him and sat next to him, then my friend says, "C-zom, where are you?" and I look up at the zombie and it begins to eat me. Scary, unscripted, dynamic stuff.

I'm having the same error in ArmA 2 free. There are absolutely no zombies, and I don't spawn with a random weapon.
