Zombie Master In Short

Zombie Master is a multiplayer Half-Life 2 modification, centred around a zombie-apocalypse, which throws all but one player in the shoes of human survivors. Pitched against a relentless tide of rotting flesh, they must scavenge for weaponry and equipment just to stay alive. But that one player, chosen randomly at the beginning of the round, is not bound by mortal restraints.

To speak his name is to invite the wrath of hell - but most call him the 'Zombie Master'. He is nigh omnipotent. His invisible hand controls the legions of undead like puppets on strings; slowly closing the net on the humans while they run to and fro like rats in a maze.

Human team:

* A wide range of weapons to scavenge such as shotguns, molotov cocktails, rifles and more
* A number of challenging objectives that encourage players to team up and work together
* The ability to interact with the environment to build barricades and carry objects

Zombie Master:

* Real Time Strategy gameplay; create and command your own undead horde
* A wide variation of zombie units encourages the ZM to adopt complex tactics
* Environmental "manipulates" allow the ZM to interact with the world in devilish ways
* Mysterious powers let the ZM manifest his power in a more direct fashion... for a price

Zombie Master 1.2.1 has been released, fixing many of the more pressing bugs present in version 1.2.0 and tweaking game balance.

Command Bashing

Summary of the changes in 1.2.1:

  • Fixed memory leak in server
  • Revolver made stronger
  • Banshee damage lowered
  • Improvement of interface responsiveness in certain situations
  • Improvement of zombie behaviour when told to swat objects
  • Additional game events for use by server plugins
  • Fixes for various exploits
  • Fix for rotated view after spectating through the zombie cam when the round restarts
  • Various other bugfixes

The new version is only available as a full installer download. You do not need any previous versions of the mod installed. If you're new to ZM, do make sure you own a Steam game that includes the Source SDK Base. Most Valve games like HL2, TF2 and L4D do include this, so if you own one you are ready to play.

The bot is a dumbfuck and doesn't do anything, so just use him if you wanna play as survivor.

I've always dreamt of controlling a zombie army. Thank you, for making the dream come true. Any chance there will be smarter AI added? Because all the bots do is walk around, don't shoot etc.
