By working with us you will grow a healthy portfolio for future opportunities in the business as well as the unparallelled experience that comes with modding. Do you have the initiative to work on PC Gamer's 2011 Mod of the Year? We look forward to working with you and developing one hell of a mod! Click here for a full description and to apply.

While in Texas for QuakeCon, we sat down with Game Front's Phil Hornshaw and Ross Lincoln for an interview about the history of the mod and its bright future! Check it out here. They also recently did a play though for their youtube channel which you can find here.

Brentonator recently went live with our new website: or It is now the ultimate source for our latest news, downloads, and information including our FAQ!

  • Melee weapon quick attacks now use up stamina; how much stamina used is based on the weapon itself (ex: sledgehammers use more strength, while a baseball bat doesn't)

I love the update and the new paricle effects but i miss the ammo number, not that i dont like the voice acting i love it i just miss it. Also it seems near impossibal to do anything when my character is always panting and not being able to hit anything. I love this update just dont like the less stamina and miss the ammo number. P.S. i love your voice acting and particle effects now to mention the new maps! Keep it up!

We'll be paying attention to how the community reacts to the new changes, some of the stuff in 1.05 were community ideas in the previous patches

It's good to hear that you enjoy the update though :)

Zombiestubble Sep 8 2012 replied:

Don't forget it pretty much impossible to move while crouching. And the backpedaling is really, really slow.

The Winchester 1892 also seems to be a little underpowered as well.

Also, as much as I like the voice acting for the weapons instead of numbers ( The new system does add a lot of realism), the voice actor is the same for every character. It would be nice to have more people contribute.

Winchester 1892 uses the same ammo as the revoler, .357, and does the same damage

plague115 Sep 17 2012 replied:

The Winchester 1892 is a rifle, rather than a revolver. Even though they shoot the same caliber round, the fact that the rifle has a significantly longer barrel than the revolver would make a huge difference in performance between these 2 weapons. The barrel length of the rifle changes the velocity in which the round is traveling, not only making it more accurate, but producing more stopping power/damage rather than a short barreled revolver. Just saying, if realism is what this mod is going for, the Winchester should do slightly more damage than the revolver...

Yeah, that new voice acting for the weapons also makes the game near-impossible for hearing-impaired players. The voices don't get echoed to the console screen so how can deaf players check ammo now?

Enable subtitles from Menu -> Options -> Audio. It then shows the subtitle of said line (also for voice-comm).

Thank you. Unfortunately it appears that the voice acting states only the number of rounds left in the current clip, not the total number of rounds left in all clips.

Dat b tru man, is a problem for me.

Seriously, it would have been better to not have voice acting as some people play without sound too, so it's equal to everybody but I probably sound like a ****.

Not to be a ****, although I am one, but reading the text made me more interested in the patch than the trailer.

Your video making skills; as in editting; are perfectly acceptable, but the content usually is a hit and a miss. If you want to attract new players, you ll have to make it look a lot more epic, and for the love of god dont add microphone speech into it because it will ruin the entire atmosphere.

I doubt that, because we fixed and tweaked alot of existing stuff too (materials/textures/models/props/maps). We didn't just add new features on top of the last build.

Sota is correct, 1.04 would not be compatible with a patch as files needed to be REMOVED as well as added and changed. Once we have Steam support if we get the votes on Greenlight, this won't be an issue!

Also, did you DELETE nmrih 1.04 before copying over 1.05?

Bleeder Sep 8 2012 says:

Please fix the final release of 1.05 to show ammo count for hearing-impaired players. Either go back to the way 1.04 showed ammo count, or use some sort of closed-captioning to echo the characters speech (Example: "Only 2 rounds left!") to the player console when checking ammo.

SinKing Sep 13 2012 says:

I like the new map Northway Mall a lot. Have only been able to see it finished, once. Would be nice, if you could chose to refill those generators, or blow up the jerry cans.

I think the new weight system is good. Before you had people just rushing off, grabbing the three best weapons on the map and all the ammo they could carry. Since that slows them down insanely now, they don't benefit from the item farming, anymore.

The backward walk feels weird, though. I always have to step to the side and turn around to actually turn around while walking backwards. Stamina should be supplemented with an "anger/adrenaline" or "riot" system, which gives you a sudden rush of power when zombies grab you and you have 0 stamina. Adrenaline would recharge slowly. Since there is no collision there is virtually no way to escape zombies that grab you when they come on top of each other. Perhaps Chuck Norris' roundhouse kick is needed :) - no, just no!

Great game, keeps getting better. In my oppinion this is what L4D should have been. Did you ever think about making a subsequent line of maps that tie into one event? You would have an outdoor map (getting to the transport/bus), then a defense scenario (refuel the truck), an attack scenario (into a military base full of zombies) and finally an escape scenario (weld open doors, protect your ***** and get to tha choppa-or da boat).

I like NMRIH insanely much, but a bigger tie in with a few story elements couldn't harm the mod. It would get me more immersed and add some purpose to the mere survival strategy. Interesting thing would also be a series of maps connected by trainlines, which takes you to random new maps at each intersection. God, I love what else you could do with the game. I'd gladly paint and work out some detail, if you need help!

SotaPoika Sep 13 2012 replied:

Valid feedback there mister. :)

I'm just going to comment on the Northway's electricity-trap: I was first planning to have it so, that you can refill the generators to use 'em again. I just decided to not give any refill possibility, because those traps are already pretty darn powerful if used at right time (somewhere above wave 8-9). This way the the gascans can have their own purpose of being basically mobile-traps (and if we at somepoint manage to do gas-spilling similar to L4D, the better).

TheUnbeholden Sep 14 2012 replied:

thats exactly what I was thinking, just a few story elements wouldn't hurt! A few map tie-ins sounds good to, even one that has several random map tie-ins could add to re-playability. I'm thinking sort of "special days of the year" releases like Halloween and Christmas.

NMRiH is what L4D should have been and BM:S is what half-life source should have been... Its funny how Source has expanded so much with user friendly and expansive modding tools (and popularity of it on ModDB and Steam) has allowed people to create better games than Valve can.
