Things are happening very rapidly now. The project has it's own website at zombiecolony.net. As well, we are very close to launching the Kickstarter. We will be updating here and our Facebook page with more concept art, and updating twitter when we have important news.

In the meantime, we have a ton of new concept art to show you guys. Most of these are sketches to explore the visual style and universe we're trying to bring to life.

Same problem for me I don't even get an error message. It simply nothing happens when I try to launch it.

I installed it into sourcemods and got Hl2 DM plus Ep2 installed in steam.
Seems to me you wrote a bad config or didn't link it to the needed games properly I don't know.

Update: I experimented a bit and so I managed to get into the main menu before it crashed on me by moving the modfolder into the ep2 main folder and launching ep2 per -game zombcol command. At least that way I could launch it and see the main menu. Naturally it wont work like that.

So definitely a config issue here. Your gameinfo.txt also looked fishy compared to other hl2 ep2 gameinfo.txt mod files. But I'm not sure if that plays an important role at all I'm to unexperienced with hl2 modding.

The config files are not the problem. Have you tried to run HL2:DM and Episode 2 before running Zombie Colony? Certain necessary files aren't extracted until the games are run.

If I wrote the config files incorrectly it wouldn't work on anyone's machine.

Nice. You're right I started Ep2 and DM played around in some maps and now your mod is working. You should add that information into your description. I reinstalled Steam couple of weeks ago when my new computer arrived so I didn't had any of the needed files I get by playing the games.

Testing your mod now.

Which maps/levels did you load up on Ep2 and DM? I can't seem to launch the game, and I've been loading levels and maps with zero success.

No specific levels are necessary. What errors are you getting?

When I run the game it gets to the startscreen (the screen with zombie colony on it, without any texts) and it minimizes after a second then I get this error:
Engine error:
Unable to load surface prop file 'scripts/surfaceproperties_ep2.text' (referenced by manifest file 'scripts/surfaceproperties_manifest.text')

And I checked in my steam/steamapps/sourcemods/scripts folder and there isn't any file named 'surfaceproperties.....'

What should I do?

Do you have HL2: Deathmatch and HL2: Episode 2 installed?

No I did not, I do not have HL2:episode 2

I did searched for the requirements on the modb page.. and I did not find it. So make it a bit clearer which versions of HL2 you got to have installed. :)

At the very top, I made sure to write "*Note: Zombie Colony requires Half Life 2: Deathmatch and the content from Half Life 2: Episode 2."

Where were you looking? I want to make it as clear as possible, so if you missed it that means other people could be as well.

Mods don't require a .exe, they're just two client and server .dll's. The folder "zombcol" that comes packed should be the one you have in your sourcemods folder. Once you restart steam, you should see it in your games list.
