Razi, MMO comes out tomorrow day at approx 12 pm GMT.


I'm psyched, I loved the game even though it was hard as heck to play. :(

Dead Frontier 1-3 are some of my least favorite online zombie games to play. All you do is walk around a house and shoot. Too boring for me. But if there is strategy in these new ones, I will definitely give it a try.

from what I can tell, the actual game is going to be multi-player, with a lot of cool features.

apparently, there's a lot of counterstrike monkeys playing this, so the pvp aspect looks to be big... not sure what I think of that.

Well, it just got delayed till about this Sunday.

Apparently his security setup was inadequate, so he's redoing the whole thing.

Plus there's some bugs that are still being worked out, but he said that if he cant get them fixed by Sunday, he'll drop them, release, and then fix the bugs in a patch later on.

Looks like I found a game that will take me away from playing sudoku all day.

Well I mangaed to play some. Horrid load times, server lag, IMO bad user interface, but once you get in the city it plays like the others. So im more or less happy with it. Its only beta but i think when he gets to playing with it more and gets some of he lag bugs out, it will be a much better game.

I feel he underestimated the amount of traffic he would receive. which is a good thing because more traffic he gets the better the chances he doesn't give up on it.

What did any one else who got in think?

Roleplay Group Description:
The Fairview Metropolitan Police Department or FMPD is the remnants of the Police Department from before the infection.
The Survivors from the Police Department are scattered around the city, their orders were initially to evacuate and protect civilians from the monsters spreading throughout Fairview; but now their goals are just trying to survive and regroup with the largest force of officers held up in Natsya's Outpost.
We've got a group lined up.

the game is up and running now. you do a lot of searching.

cops are great, until you run out of bullets... I picked up a mastercraft cricket bat. it lays the smack down nicely.

I'd be game for this, if you guys are.

I have A LOT of food [beer & crisps] for anyone if they need it PM me in the game. My name is gerry.agnosia

EDIT: Need help! For some reason, I stepped into this big black room when going to another block, and when I logged back out and logged back in I was stuck! There are zombies quickly approaching me, and I don't want to die, so I logged out.

Could someone else that plays the game alert the GMs in the Troubleshooting part of the forums about my situation? My game name is gerry.agnosia

Thank you!

EDIT: Nevermind... I chose to die. I think we should have a fast-response system here where our "group" could spam the GM to do something about folks here who are experiencing major glitches. Might spur him into action faster.

EDIT: FUCK! I'm in the black room, again! Someone PLEASE spam the GM for me! HELP!

EDIT: I escaped. To do so just hit the "i" key to bring up the inventory screen. Then go back to the game.

I'm having a similar problem near the bottom middle of the map (in fact, in one of the dead-ends), where I try and log back in but it instantly kills me or something, yet won't register me as being, well, dead, and immediately cuts to a white screen saying "Communicating with server." I tried reloading a few times, but it kept spawning then killing me, then dumping me at this dead-end screen.

Check out my shop for basically dirt-cheap stuff that I don't need. Maybe someone here could use my items.

Also an Engineer, so hit me up if you need armor repairs.

[Yes, this was a shameless plug. ;)]

Anybody else out there have any usable skills the rest of the group could trade you for?

Kalen_Phoenix for my guy. Lvl 2 farmer, was gonna go and do Police Man, but I figured farmer was a bit easier.


Serves me right, got a shotgun and can't use it. :(


ETA:AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!!

Just did a days worth of looting, got alotta cash, was in critical condition. Made it back to the outpost entrance and a goddamn zombie spawned RIGHT THERE!

I was in the transition between the base and the first street when he nailed me and killed me. That friggin blows. :evil:

187 in cash all lost to this prick.

put a link to your profile in here (when you view your profile, click 'summary' and copy that link), especially if you're an engineer.

:)

I'm so sick of finding beer and crisps. I want a damn shotgun!

Level 6 Engineer here--- flak jacket repairs for $25 [support your fellow Zombie Squad Forumite! :wink: ]:

http://s1deadfrontier.net/onlinezombiem ... sa=summary

Also...

There is a big internal-argument going on in the game because the Game Admin lowered looting-drop-rates DRAMATICALLY to the point where folks can't find anything but beer and plasters...

There is a petition going on in the game forums in the "General Discussion" area. Please sign it.

Thank you.
