A few words from Dman:

Greetings friends, fans & family! We here at NMRiH are proud to bring you version 1.04 of No More Room in Hell. We have put a lot of work into this patch and hope you all enjoy it. We expected this to be a quick patch but we just kept finding so many small things to improve upon this time around we wanted to make sure we got it right. It has really turned into a big project if you just take a look at our changelog below.

We have new things for all to enjoy! Like survival? Well we have a new community map just for that. We've included the map in our official build because we liked it so much, it's called nms_isolated created by Lou Saffire. Hate high pings? Our lead programmer ssba has vastly improved network performance when it comes to npcs on a server. Linux server owner? Thanks to a generous donation of a server by BloodBathGaming.net we have been able to work out the kinks in our Linux server files. Same goes for RawCG.net who as always provides us with excellent official public and private windows testing servers.

Code

  • Disabled collision of safe zone supplies with players / npcs
  • Adjusted zombie damage, now (one hand / two hand) shambler: 15/30, runner: 20/40, kid: 8/16
  • Fixed negative zombie counts on hud
  • Disabled listen server autostart to try to cut down on number of invalid token errors
  • Fixed memory corruption bugs in Survival Mode
  • Fixed supply wave crash bug on Linux servers
  • Changed zones to no longer lose health if there are no survivors present in them
  • Fixed a rare issue where there was a chance for entities/lighting in any nms_ map to disappear if the previously played map was an objective level
  • Changed drain rates to the following:
    • Drain per zombie per sec: 0.5 -> 0.15
    • Max drain per sec: 5 -> 2
    • Drain per sec while empty: 0.25 -> 0.2
    • Player drain counter per sec: 1.5 -> 1.75

    [*]Optimized npc networking for better performance in open areas & with large amount of npcs

    [*]Fixed orientation/model of "nmrih_safezone_supply" for Hammer

    [*]Added slight push to barricades you out if you stand too close a barricading point while putting a board up; mappers should ensure the barricade point normals point away from walls as this is the direction players are pushed

    [*]Fixed various client and server crashes

    • Added one barricade position to every door frame
    • Closed off some windows to help provide better performance inside the safe zone buildings and alter gameplay

I can't understand how the zones' health is working. In the new map all of us are holding the 2nd floor, or lets say we are guarding the stairs. Which is near one of the zones. Ok there are no zombies in there just us the survivors, but the health is drained to 0 really fast. But in the basement where is D zone, its 100% all the time no matter if there is no one in there. Why is that? How is this health system actually working? I thought its about the zombie presence and survivors holding the ground until its overrun, but it seem its not like that :unsure:

Yes, zones only go down when there are zombies in them.

The zones A, B and C reach from the 1st to 2nd floor

For example you can be in the 2nd floor of zone A, but zombies can still destroy destroy zone A from the 1st floor.

Zone D is only in the basement.

Before = Zones lose health if no survivor is present in them

Now = Zones only lose health if zombies storm in

It was changed based off of feedback and seeing it in action on the public build; if people want the auto health decrease to return it can come back in a later update

No, no its good like you described it. But I thought the zones are divided by the floors and not one zone - 2 floors. But now I got it ;)

It's up to the mapper to decide (both on where the zones are and whether or not it'll have a fancy or simple custom win scenario), lou_saffire can probably give you a definite answer on why it's like that in his map =p

It'd be good if this was a serverside option or something (Maybe a toned down version of how it worked before) I joined a game to play isolated, but the survivors had no problem keeping the place defended, so after being in the spawn queue for 5-10 mins, I just disconnected. (But im assuming there's going to be stuff added in the future that'll help keep the pressure on the survivors/panic events, no matter what modes being played).

And, OPTIMISATION. This is basically the patch i've been waiting for in many ways.

sv_lan 0 should be all you need

I've tried that but it's not working. I'm trying to host via "Create Server" but it's not appearing in the server list. I tried heartbeat as well, the game's not even trying to open the port.

Nevermind, after I used map [mapname] it added to the list of servers. So I just had to change maps for it to update I guess.

sometimes after turning off sv_lan you have to run net_start or heartbeat for it to kick in

Seems like the torrent links have died.

Yeah Demonoid deleted them without even telling me why. I'm working on finding another better/public tracker solution at the moment. Thinking mininova for their decent stat service they have.
