Zombie Panic: Source is a co-op oriented Survivor Vs Zombie multi-player survival horror modification for HL2. While our main priority is to make the mod as fun to play as possible, ZP:S plans to greatly expand on the core features of "Zombie panic" For HL1, with the obvious new features, impressive visuals, and of course atmospheric maps. More importantly ZP:S will not force players to fend against dumb and predictable AI, but instead keep the same intense thrill of surviving against intelligent and persistent player controlled zombies as the original.

Report article RSS Feed ZPS 2.1 Released!

Zombie Panic: Source v2.1 has been packaged and sent off to Valve and we're now all eagerly awaiting to play with the community. Keep an eye open on 2.1 Steam Update!

Posted by Tatsur0 on Feb 8th, 2011

It is our pleasure to announce that earlier today we sent v2.1 of Zombie Panic: Source to Valve and are eagerly awaiting it's proper release over the steam servers! We are beyond grateful for the support the community has shown us these last 3+ years. The current team working on ZP:S and this includes the new playtesters have been at it daily with multiple tests per day 7 days a week. With v2.1 our goal was to provide as promised a more stable, enjoyable, and balanced game and we're quite confident that's exactly what we've done. We begin work on v2.2 in a few weeks to add in more features, content, as well as further improving the existing game.

For veterans of ZP:S who aren't actively playing these days I also wanted to make a point to impress that with v2.1 we made sure to bring back survival horror to the game that was lost with the popularity of the mod and box camp maps. ZP:S is once again the game that it was meant to always be due to Sammy's unique system and we've also gone through a number of our favorite maps updating them visually and fixing minor issues that may have turned off players.

I would also like to thank NuclearFallout for their incredible support. If it weren't for them we would not be releasing v2.1 this month. After having to switch SVN hosts and manage other issues that would have delayed us for a considerable amount of time the NFO support staff made sure our playtest server was up and running with 24/7 support. I can't thank em enough and strongly believe them to be the best out there.


See you in game!

Or maybe it might be his Internet connection. Either way, it's not the fault of the Mod's Developers and blaming them is immature.

As Frika pointed out on our forums some files that weren't meant to end up in gcf managed to make their way in there instead of the folder itself (Temp fix is to extract from gcf using GCFScape to your ZPS folder). I've provided a detailed list and as soon as Frika makes it home from work we should have everything sorted with Valve. We again thank you all for the kind words (been swamped with PMs) and support. For everyone else we ask that you be just a bit more patient. We're rather proud of this update and I can't wait to have things rolling smoothly here in the near future.

No he means random every round. Current random chooses one model randomly. After that if you want another random model you have to go back to options and choose random again.

No values were changed at all with the zombie lunge or movement; they just don't get pushed back anymore when you shoot them (knockback bug was fixed)

As for the players spawning in the lobby, we're aware of it and are trying to pinpoint the cause :)

Its sort of based off older zombie movies in which the survivors are always low on ammo and the zombies aren't really fast. At least thats what I feel its based on.

Hey guys!

First off, I think the new patch is really good, especially the part with the ammo weight: now you can concentrate on one type of gun and ammo. It also feels more smoothly in general. Not to forget that it brings back the fear factor.
I've got ZPS since it's first release and I have to say that I'm still loving it as much as I did, when I was playing it for the very first time. It's simply awesome.
Thanks for putting so much effort into this game and continuously making updates.

You guys are just great! ;)

I really hope they almost complety change the movement system. I quit playing this mod a few years back because of stupidly dumb you ran around like an old man. i could carry 10 guns myself and move faster than those people in game. "O but its realistic". nope, isnt the point of video games to do what you cant do in real life? why does realism have to be in games. Its contradicting the thought process of creating games nowadays. Ill try this mod again, but my hopes are low. When i played, the guns were weak, running was a joke, zombies always won unless everyone just camped a tiny itty bitty bottleneck. i felt it was less a zombie mod and more just a alien invincible monster mod. it will take tons of fixes to get my attention for this at all again.

apparently it doesn't take much to get your attention. We don't expect everyone to enjoy the game but it would seem the things you dislike are what make the game survival horror rather than arcade shooter. It's quite alright with us knowing that we can't make everyone happy as that would be "unrealistic"

Hi guys!
Great to know you have updated ZP:S! Thank you!

Btw, I recently had to switch to a Mac... Do you have any plan to release it for such a platform (soon)?
I don't have any idea of the work required to achieve such a porting, so am I simply asking...

Again, thank you and keep up the good work!
