    Beta Demo Release
    :

    So after months and months of work, the Zombies Beta Demo is finally released.

    With millions of bugs and other little things. Probably the most major bug is that the mini map doesn't cook with the game.

    I will re-upload with working mini map once that problem is fixed.

    Please view my progress thread here : http://forums.epicgames.com/showthre...2#post28674852

    Fixed Issues

    Notification Text on the Left now fades out.

    You can now skip the intro sequence. Its also shorter and you can read the text now.

    Taking damage is more noticeable now.

    Puzzles are a little different. May take some figuring out.

    Important objects give off a glint.

    Computer monitor glows now. [Emmisive]

    Zombies can see you from a bit farther away. They still need work.

    Lowered the games overall exaggerated bloom. Muzzle flash lowered.

    You can now pick up Health packs. Healing effect PP coming soon.

    Make what you have to do to open the tunnel door more obvious.

    Still Having issues with the MiniMap not cooking with the game, will have that fix when i can.

    AI Still isnt the greatest.


    Known Issues
    • MiniMap Does not appear on cooked game
      [*]When you hit yes to "Show Hints" anytime a hint pops up your character will continue moving forward once you hit 'close'
    • GenericZombies will sometimes do odd things like go off onto a wall
    • Tyrant floats even though his collision is set properly
    • Save and load is still iffy, sometimes saving the game will not load the proper events depending on where you saved the game
    • Character still has no head... bear with me
    • Game is not optimized for lower end pc's sorry guys. Lower the resolution as much as you can
    • The options menu doesnt work. Im working on a clever plan for saving settings, wait for Next Beta release
    • May be more. Just let me know

              This is pretty awesome, and awesomely pretty. Great job!

              I did the quick play through, here's my experience.

              First, the intro pacing is extremely too long. Two quick blurbs of story I didn't have time to read, then a few minutes of blank space while we wait on europe to rotate around. I couldn't really show this to anyone without waiting for that unskippable scene to be done.

              I did snag on the known bug of constantly moving forward, but I also ran into with hints disabled at one point while simply walking forward. Not sure what triggered it.

              Controls at this point are real clunky. It's difficult to pick-up any item or press any button without navigating directly above it while sliding around on what feels like ice. I can't make much sense of the sprinting either as sometimes he starts, then goes faster forever. Other times you start to run then just stop.

              COmbat seems fine. I have no trouble stopping the zombies with this gun. Most of the time they seemed to stand there and wait for. That big monster at the end was standing in the corner until I went up the ladder and got the outro.

              Every puzzle is "find the key for this door", and every "key" is a tiny set of keys in the corner of some room. Anyway to mix that up?

              You need a way to restore health or the health system is kinda pointless.

                I didnt think about the health wow, idk why.

                Im not sure maybe the install is odd i never had trouble picking up ammo or items. The sprinting stops after a while as you get "tired", it always seemed ok.

                I agree on the long intro i forgot about it when i released it. The Tyrant is a blind giant. If you successfully passed him without him doing anything at all then props to you hehehe.

                He can only hear sprinting, jumping, picking up items and shooting of course.

                Im suprised that the picking up items was hard. You do have to get close to the item but
                i suppose i can increase the radius.

                The zombies are pretty dumb yeah lots of tweaking needed for those dumbos.

                Thanks for even downloading it!!! Ill try to fix the issues in the next release.

                Give me a week or so and ill post another version. Again keep playing it through and keep giving suggestions. I'll also work on the repetitiveness of the puzzles.

                  Forgot on note: At one point, I went in a room, and it sounded like someone was in pain somewhere on the other side of the room. I didn't hear or notice anything else. After a while, my health was going down some. I turned around, and a zombie had been beating on me for all that time. A few more audio/visual feedback ques on that would be great. Zombie grunting, melee impact, some hit effect, etc.

                  Oh yea, and that tyrant guy just stood there while I emptied all my clips in his back. So I doubt I avoided him.

                    Ahahah that's kinda of funny. Your character should make hurt noises when getting hurt, not sure why it didn't work on ur case. And the zombies, yeah don't grunt. So ill work on that. In the case that audio doesn't seem to work, the visual will always do the trick. Thanks again for the feedback.

                    It worked for me when i installed the game, odd that he just stood there.
