Post news RSS 2.9.9 Desura Version Live!

We've just uploaded the latest build to Desura, and it's got a whole ton of fixes.

Posted by on

The changelist is way too long to detail everything, but there are literally hundreds of bug fixes in this build. Some highlights!

* Farming fixed.
* Carpentry fixed.
* Updated map
* Split-screen improvements.
* New last-stand game mode for quick frantic Zomboid fixes.
* Effects of rain re-added. As Douglas Adams would say: Bring a towel.
* Food rotting re-enabled.

This isn't even close to everything.

Enjoy all! Let us know if you have any issues, and we'll have another build in the next few days to introduce the new 'survival guide' which will give newer players tips on survival.

And now... onto NPC development! We're very excited to be back on what we feel will be the most fundamentally game-changing feature in the game. The NPCs and the meta-game. For further information on what this means and what a fundamentally exciting thing this is for us, read one of our old Mondoids on the subject:

Projectzomboid.com

Thanks again everyone! And see you all in a few days for the next Desura build. We're going to keep up the pace now we're approaching a stable build.

If you're not already a Zomboideer, please consider giving us a lovely buy:

Desura Digital Distribution

Love you all!

Now I cannot play at all. After the game tells me this is How I die It goes to a black screen and crashes. Any one have ideas of how I can fix this?

The game breaks as soon as I try playing any gamemode (survival, sandbox, and Last Stand).

TheIndieStone I hope you fix this soon otherwise some gamers here are going to be very upset...

Well don't get mad about it. Remember it is Alpha which means these things are gonna happen. When you can play the game it is fantastic. So just stay Patient, let them fix it and enjoy it when it comes back around.

Best Wishes.

Do I need to add a mod to find guns in the game? I have found ammo for pistol and shotgun but no other types. Also are there any other types of guns like rifle or crossbow etc.?
