12/22/13 vers2.0
Note: couple of minor issues on release so will try and fix these within the 24hour period - thanks

So whats in this update? too much to mention really but heres a few

o Intro has been slimmed down with an updated poster + gnome added for easter egg
This one done because l4d2 has a limited idle time and when playing coop players could miss the intro
currently there is no work around so the intro was shortened

o Map1 has a panic event near start
This was added to stop players rushing through the map

o 3 more new melee weapons for extra zombie mutilation (5 in total)

o All maps have so much more detail etc etc too much to list

o New water paticle effects
These were changed from using refracted textures due to increased performance.
o Huge Easter Egg! Can you find it? Go on I know you want to :)
o NPCs and loads of extra voice acting
o Dynamic paths on most maps (eg the electric water has alternate paths)
This was added as people didnt like the cheap kill possibilty. Now you have the choice
When the electric is on you can bipass it. If you do try and turn it off then theres some goodies in the back room for your troubles
o Dynamic placement of items
o Heavily optimised
o New final format - A 2 stage event that forces players to rethink
alot of players thought the final was too easy so this adds extra difficulty

o A lap dancing club -- (oh wait that didn’t make it in this update)
o A huge amount of love and attention all over (and some on the maps too :P )
o Basically this is how I intended the first release to be
o More bugs? Lets hope not
o Kitchen sink? Yep map3
o More to come… Of course there will be

Why has it taken soo long? Its just mainly me doing this and I do have a full time job so time is precious. Its been a long old slog but Ive got there. I hope Ive created something you'll enjoy and if you don’t then maybe the eight game is better suited to you .

I do need to thank a few people that have helped along the way though.

RT Frisk for his help with getting the final script/instances working, plus the very sub par voice acting (he really cant do a texan accent :P)
Splinks for the melee weapons and general discussions on how floppy a dead arm should be.
Bunny for help with some of the models
The many testers (too many to name)
My MMclan mates for doing some other testing for me
A shout out to Kev Edwards for morale support and setting the bench mark when it comes to details in maps
Black mesa for allowing me to use some of their models
Davey Wreden and Kevan Brighting for a huge favour ;) we wont talk about this (spoilers)
Kerry @ valve for help with melee scripts
And lastly my lovely partner Jacqui for putting up with me spending late nights on this.

BETA Released - All 5 maps, new SI and 2 new melee weapons plus custom models , sound and textures.

This is an open Beta so I want to get as much info back from the community before I release an update.

I suggest play this on medium to high settings. There is a possible issue with low shaders causing water to screw up.

If you do get crashes then try disabling other addons first. (back to school especially)

Still lots to come so expect more updates.

- thanks Morly

I love love LOVE this campaign, extremely well done and very detailed. I think I have found a bug, however.

In the finale, I couldn't get on the train. It lit up with the blue outline and told me to get on, but every time I went near it, it would shove me off. It took about 10 minutes just to be able to wedge myself in beside the train (I even tried from both ends, but the far end shoved me off when I got to the gap with the broken fence), and when I finally made it to the train car door (after even more tries), I couldn't jump in. Wedging myself between the train and the fence made me jump or bob or something, even though there appeared to be ample room. Running at the train at any point resulted in violently bouncing off.

There was also only one Tank in the finale. There weren't any more even while I was trying to get on the train for 20 minutes. Not necessarily a bad thing, but I'm used to having a two or three Tank finale even on easy difficulty.

Other than that, absolutely amazing map. If not the best map I have ever played, then easily in the top three. Well done, and thank you.

Hiya, I am aware of this bug.. not sure what causes it. I think I have a fix for this but at the moment Im in the process of a reformat and really busy with the black mesa stuff. Once I get my pc up to scratch I'll get an update done.

thanks Morly
