MOD INFO - Zombie Master Black Edition is a "spin-off" mod based on the original Zombie Master Source Code. - Features: 9 all-new custom weapons - 3 new zombie types - challenging gameplay.
Some zombies in ZMBE 2.0 wear protective armor in form of vests and/or helmets. The usual method for that in every HL2-based game is to have one hitbox for the head which also acts as the helmet hitbox for the purpose of hitlocation.
And that totally sucks. I want players to be able actually hit parts of the head which are not protected by the helmet, and therefore I modeled a new set of hitboxes which protect the top and backside of the head, but not the face.
