Killing Floor is a survival horror total conversion set in London, England. In a laboratory under the city, a series of human experiments in cloning and biological augmentation are being conducted by the employees of "Horizon". Horizon is a BioTech corporation formerly employed by the government to do the R&D on a top secret series of synthetic combat drugs which would enhance the effectiveness of soldiers in the field. Horizon's funding was cut, when their practices were deemed too immoral even for such a controversial project, but the research didn't stop. Funded by private money from the deep pockets of Horizon chairman and research scientist Kevin Clamely, tests continued in a more...private location. That was until something went wrong. There were reports that the lab had been comprimised; that the subjects were behaving abnormally...then, silence. Several days later, twisted shapes began to emerge from the confines of the lab into the city above.

The cooperative survival horror mod for UT2004 gets its 5th official release! And this is a big one!

Posted by on

It took a LOT longer than expected both to develop, and to get released - but here it is

a shiney new reason to dust off UT2004 and jump back into the multiplayer massacre taking place right now out on the Killing Floor....


The list of improvements , additions , and changes from Killing Floor 2.1 is significant, but a (partial) compilation can be found in the installer.

CURRENT MIRRORS:

1. Files.filefront.com
2. Moddb.com
3. Platinumarts.net

Thanks to platinum arts for this mirror, once you've got KF downloading, you should also check out Platinum Arts Sandbox and Doom 3 Coop Mod Last Man Standing Coop!

Note: to play you need UT2004 installed, and patched to v3369 + the ECE bonus pack
if you have an old copy of KFMod20 installed, delete it, and copy over completely.
this is not an incremental patch

Once you have tried it out, stop by the forums and tell us what you think of our work!
Killingfloor.freedomsnet.net

Here are a few of the key additions, check the installer for others!

Additions:
_______________________________________________________
- Added "Veterancy" system, with 5 selectable classes, and perks.
- Added enemy "gibbing", and more responsive gore effects.
- Added support for non-Survival based Killing Floor maps, with a new gametype "Story"
- Added new player models (Hazmat, Masterson,Stalker)
- Added new weapon "Flamethrower" available to buy from the "speed" category of the Trader shop.
- Added new server options for setting downtimes between waves, enabling veterancies, and setting the total number of max zombies which can spawn at a single time.
- Added "Iron sights" scopes to the "Bullpup", and LAW weapons. Can be activated with secondary fire. You may only fire the LAW while holding the "Iron sight".
- Added "Accuracy" system to the game, which augments weapon aim and recoil depending on player movement speed, and physics state.
- Added "Armor condition bar" above player's health state, on the third person HUD.
-Added new attack types for several zombie classes
-Added "Tactical Light" to the 9mm and Dual 9mm weapons. This can be activated with secondary fire, and has a limited, but regenerating battery.
-Addded improved Bot AI code. Killing Floor bots will now fight at range, where possible, switch to melee weapons when cornered, heal other players, and themselves if injured, and respond to the threat at hand.
- Added upgrades to the game "Lobby" including access to the options menu from lobby, a more accurate playerlist, "Timeout" controls which will toggle if 75% of players have readied up and one guy hasn't. and a failsafe time where the match will begin regardless, after a set time.

Find your Steam Folder, then the path is: Steam\SteamApps\common\unreal tournament 2004\KFMod20. Then, just run the batch file located inside the KFMod20 folder to play it, and steam will launch UT2004 automatically for it. Make sure it is named KFMod20 when installing, because otherwise the batch file won't run right.

try deleting your ut2004 configs/preferences, that might help. you'll lose your campaign progress though.

Once again, great job, Mr. Kadish :D I run a server for this game regularly. I'm located in California, so some of you may lag (and I may have to shut down because of the heat in the summer) but I run on broadband, so it's all good. It's called "Black Hand Server" and the max playercount is 4 to prevent too much lag. Join me sometime!

You probably renamed the folder KFMod20.

I tried to be clever and renamed it KFMod25 and got the same error.

You must specify the install directory to be exactly /unreal tournament 2004/KFMod20/
for the KF-Menu.ut2 thing to work.

Hm, my advice may be mistaken, but I have the Steam version of UT2k4. Not sure how I got that message in the first place though.

The cause of this error is that you're missing the ECE Bonus pack, released by epic some time ago....install it.

An oversight on my part, in using one of their textures...

Another way to make this work without installing the pack...Simply make a blank map file and re-name it to "KF-Menu" and put it in the KF maps folder...

Would you consider bringing back the Singleplayer side of the mod?
Can you mod be played with Bots?

Cheers

the installer should create a launcher or start it up in the ut2004 mods menu(click the community menu or w/e on the main menu and you'll see).

And u can always launch it directly on the kf directory. File named "Play Kf" it will launch kf directly and you will save some time.

I've yet to play with other people but Killing Floor is great. The maps are all very detailed have thick, spooky atmospheres and the combat is great. It's downright scary to play, with creepy monsters everywhere.

The only problem I've had with bots so far is that I can't make them follow me around! They just wander off and die easily. Sometimes they get stuck on welded doors, too. Otherwise they do a great job, and I'm impressed at the navigation of the monsters too. I've yet to find a camping spot where I can't be reached by the AI.

Keep up the good work, this is an A+ mod.

if thats your opinion just from faffing about on your own, i think you'll find something to REALLY love in this mod when you can jump on a 12 + man server ;)

I'm going to see if I can get a big game going at the next LAN I visit. We've usually got a good amount of people playing UT2k4 so I hope I can get a big zombie-survival-fest going. Until then I might see if I can find some servers with decent ping.

I really wish people would vote for maps we actually HAVE. I'm tired of not being able to find every little user made map buried in forums and UT doesn't download maps like Steam does. Maps load a percent of a percent, every five seconds. I lose connection before I even reach 40%.
