Post news Report article RSS Feed NMRiH Beta 1.0 Release

The wait is finally over -- Public Beta 1.0 of NO MORE ROOM IN HELL is here! Remember, this is a BETA and everything is subject to change! Give us feedback and report bugs on our forums!

Posted by [nmrihdev]-Maxx on Oct 31st, 2011

My name is Matt Kazan, most of you know me as Maxx. I joined the No More Room in Hell team in 2004 shortly after the release of Half-Life 2. I saw the mod evolve over time and and I watched as it went through many different iterations and hardships (4554). In January 2009 InzaneFlea and I were given control of the project from its founder Coleman Sweeney, and from scratch our dedicated team undertook the task of seeing it through to finally making a public release.

We have all worked hard and we’re proud of what we’ve done. The amount of work everyone on the team has put in has not gone unnoticed and the efforts in all departments have truly paid off, but it isn’t finished yet. We hope that you will enjoy the game and give us your feedback to help us make it the best that we can. We’ve even created this handy email for submitting bug reports:

Ladies and gentlemen, as project manager it is my pleasure to present No More Room in Hell.

Primary Mirrors:

As well as Desura for easy installation:

Alternative Mirrors:

Alternate Mirror Windows Client (Team Sanctum) #1
Alternate Mirror Windows Client (Fileserve) #2

Linux Server Files:

For those interested in hosting dedicated servers on Linux, you can get the files here

Getting Started

For new players it is recommended that you check out our NMRiH Wiki to read the Beginner’s Guide plus info on weapons and items and more. It will explain the basic gameplay mechanics and controls for NMRiH. It also includes tutorials for our custom entities in our FGD for those looking to create custom maps.

Just remember that this is NOT a final or finished product! NMRiH is still very much a work in progress. There are many planned features, maps and the Survival game mode which will be added in time. We are always looking for bugs and feedback on the game, visit our forums and let us know of your experiences while playing!

Special Thanks!

I’d like to give a big thanks and a shoutout to all of the people past and present who have committed their valuable time to No More Room in Hell over the years. We wouldn’t have gotten this far without all of your many contributions big and small! There have been dozens of people from all over the world who have contributed to NMRiH in many different ways and much of their work and influence can still be found in the game!

I’d also like to thank RawCG for providing our dedicated servers for testing during our long development, and for providing us with the first six Official NMRiH Dedicated servers for public use!

******* yes! I can't wait to play it! Great job guys, you successfully kept this mod going through thick and thin where many others would have given up. You've been through some tough times but hopefully, it'll all be worth it. I can't wait to see the server browsers full with games! Congratulations, really.

Unfortunately all guns are really weak and the munition is rare and there are sooo many enemies.... Overall it's not really fun to play this game. Sorry, but it needs more work.

experience so far :

Join game - It's too dark to see, try to find a flashlight button. End up hitting the punch key. The person I punched turns around and hits me until i'm dead (no HUD so I didn't even know I was low on health). I am then told I will have to wait until the match is over to respawn.

Quit server , join another one. Crash to desktop.

Boot game back up, join another server. Someone is hacking, standing around with god mode on letting zombies eat him. Nobody can spawn, we are forced to spectate this guy.

Quit server, join another one. Crash to desktop.

At that point I called it quits. Points for effort guys, I can see there's probably a fun mod somewhere in there, but it's buried under technical issues and unwelcoming design mechanics

Hi, I was hosting that, I had no clue why I didn't take damage at the time, but it turned out that setting friendly fire to off makes you take no damage even from the zombies.

I also forgot to turn on the console so that's why I tried to get the zombies to kill me so everyone could join in...

I do have to point out here that at least for your first try, they did advise you to read the beginner's guide first which has the layout for controls?

plasmasword Oct 31 2011, 3:23pm replied:

this **** about crashes is true, i crash every 2 loadings approximately. The worst is that you have to wait until round restart, so sometimes you wait 20 mins only to get a stupid crash. I think it needs a lobby system of some sort, so you can wait until the server fills up, without having to restart (and crash)

Vcc2cc Nov 5 2011, 4:15pm replied:

So you don't look up what button is bound to flashlight and press a bunch of keys, accidentally punching ur team mate, causing him to kill you.

Next you join a server where a guy was "hacking" with God mode. Which was probably sv_cheats 1 followed by god mode/noclip, and you're complaining.

Aside from crashing, the devs aren't responsible for the idiots you play with.

It's the mod, I'm having a lot of random crashes as well, but never have problems with other Source mods.

Hopefully a fix is in the works
