Finally found THE game I've always hoped for

20 posts in this topic

Just want to say thank you to the devlopers of NMRiH.

I played for the first time yesterday and am instantly addicted.

I used to LOVE the game "Land of the Dead" inspired by the George A Romero movie, and am in shock that you guys have not only delivered similar quality slow zombie gameplay but have actually made an online game way above and beyond my expectations for horror survival, not to mention free.

Can't believe I didn't know about this game until now, but you have made an instant and long term fan.

If anyone has any crucial tips for a newb lemme know here. I've already been told to 'not take all the ammo' haha and sprinting and melee have a cooldown. Any other tips from veterans would be great.

Cheers!

I got some stuff for ya:

- Grab this: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=142174814 , tells you everything you need to know.

- Shove after attacks all day erryday.

- The Sledgehammer and FUBAR Wrecking Bar do not require charge attacks since they one hit kill everything, but feel free to do it for the lols.

- On Survival, use guns and barricading at wave 3 on almost all Survival maps, first two waves, it's pure melee.

- Guns are for difficult situations only.

- Stay away from all infinite ammo and guns menu servers, you ain't no scrub.

Thanks rock, all really good tips.

especially the shove after attack I'm sure that helps avoid injuries.

I went to one infinite ammo server and thought "nope, this is not what I'm here for" lol

is there any way of knowing your own health status besides being really low ?

Very happy you discovered this game and liked it! "Land of the Dead" the game was very interesting, although it was mediocre in terms of graphics and level design I liked it too. The weapon/zombie sounds and animations are memorable. I never thought of putting it by NMRiH, but now that you mention it I can see how the latter reminds you of the former. The models have this charm to them. The soldier zombie looks like a pilot zombie!

The guide Rock posted is fundamental and a should-read. Here are some tips from me.

- Start out using the pipe, machete, or crowbar to become familiar with how melee works. Also, like stated above remember to shove right after attacking.

- Don't be intimidated by large shambler hordes in objective maps. Find gaps, stay calm and "power walk" (short sprint bursts) your way through them. Hit/shove what you need to and nothing more.

- Crouch when engaging zombie kids.

- Befriend nice guys and/or girls in-game and play with them semi-regularly to establish a team bond. Having someone to count on and someone who can count on you is wonderful.

- Communicate with your team; if you need something don't be afraid to ask. Worst thing that should happen is that no one says anything.

- Take advantage of gas cans to set hordes ablaze, but be ready for the hot runners.

- Don't feel discouraged if you aren't successful in completing a map. You'll eventually make it!

- (This one is highly recommended) Keep in touch with the forums and news updates to see what's happening with the community and any future updates that are around the corner.

- Crouch when engaging zombie kids.

Not necessary. Children are like real zombies, except made of tissue paper. Here is the correct child handling protocol.

Quick, horizontal slices, chops em' down like fields of wheat. This video also demonstrates what NOT to do: Don't try to jump over them, always watch your stamina, do not backpedal if you intend to outpace their attacks, and always be aware that your attack range is usually slightly larger then theirs

Here's another demonstration of how to deal with their less-papery, adult counterparts.

Same trick, except using charge attacks and a shove.

And a video demonstrating the "five/seven-second rule" with charge attacks.

Sorry about not being able to embed all the videos, for some reason it didn't like having more then one.

IF only guns in this mod would truly be used as a last protocol, I think I'd use this mod, and not just play it. I play Zombie Panic far more than this mod, but that's playing it. See, mapping is everything once you got all the textures, animations, sounds, gameplay coding styles, and models down, you really have to what's most important: produce something we can see and let us see that story. Think of the movie The Professional. What if things like that actually happened? When you see the movie, you are so happy it was released. That's where I'm get'n at. We've got the skin, bones, and organ systems flourished with blood. Now, we need our mappers professed, instead of our mappers professing.

wow thank you so much for all the awesome advice everyone!

i like how this game has a steep learning curve, and not everything is explained to you off the bat

i used to play Zombie Panic a bunch and that game is amazing too, but there's something about killing hordes of slow zombies with team mates in this game that is so satisfying

i took a peak at the NMRIH manual, but that is like a bible it's a long read haha, I'll have to sit back with a coffee and my tampon one of these days and go through it, so i really apprciate all the helpful tips given in this thread and can't wait to try them out

The only thing I've ever complained about with this game is that nobody ever seems to have a mic while paying. That's more of a gripe with a community rather than the game itself, but it can get quite boring after a while. Maybe I'm just not on the right servers.

Yeah, that's the sad part and the con of a free game, the majority of the players are people with close to no experience in any video game at all lol, and the game is extremely fun with people using mic in comparison with none, and it's a major difference, this is from experience! :D

I do not like voices, I become more immersed in the game when I have headphones on and no voices. I think that there should be more dialogue options in game, the wheel seems a little limited, maybe throw in twice or triple the voice commands, even if they are silly, think Left 4 Dead, those characters never stop talking and it immerses you deeply in the game.

I didn't find L4D's voices so immersive either so I can't agree lol, and while we can do that, it'll require us to bug all the voice actors that are included in the game, some of them I believe aren't even part of the team and just lent their voice to us (excluding Pug and Chippants).

I am a pretty good voice actor, I've worked in a few indie short films in the past, I would work for free to get something like that done.

A bit off but, hey contribute your voice to the game, make your own voice set! we need moar! :D

But while it's amazing you are willing to have that to happen, it's not just you we would ask, it's all those voice actors as well, which is what I meant with the last message. :\
