Modding / FH2 Zombies beta release! (1-19-13)
« on: 20-01-2013, 01:01:30 »
After an extended development time, I finally decided to just release what was done as an open beta. It was taking so long that it was starting to stress me out.

Anyhow, this is a beta, so it's lacking a little bit of polish. There are a few minor cosmetic things that I need to change, such as team names and flag icons, but those don't directly affect gameplay so I'll figure out how to change them later. There might be a couple bugs, but I tried to get rid of most of them.

At the moment, I don't want this submitted to any mod news sites. It's a bit too rough for that.

BF2 fully patched
FH2 fully patched

Installation instructions, this is VERY important:

The folder "FH2Zombies" goes into the EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\mods folder, obviously.

In order to launch the mod, you MUST configure and use the provided shortcut.

Right click the shortcut, and go to properties. Make sure the target location points to your FH2.exe, NOT THE BF2.exe.

Here is what my shortcut looks like. You absolutely must have the +modpath line at the end.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\FH2.exe" +modPath mods/fh2zombies

Once this is done, you can apply the provided FH2Z icon image to the shortcut if you want. Just click the change icon button, and navigate into the FH2 Zombies mod folder and it should show up.

Please read the readme for other important information, such as co-op settings.

Just as a heads up, due to certain problems I had, the default player team is always the zombie side. Just switch to the survivor side and everything will be fine.

It has been a while, and I completely forgot if I included anyone elses content in the mod. I'm pretty sure I made all the textures in this version myself, but if you spot something that you definitely made, let me know and I'll credit you. I also kind of.. forgot to credit myself. lol.

Things I'm aware of:
Zombie and Survivor teams are currently "America and Germany" respectively. Needs renaming.
Flag icons are American and German, instead of survivor and zombie. (I need to find out why I cant save the flag icon dds.)
There might be a crash on Eppeldorf if you play with survivor bots. But it seems to work fine with just zombies. This is probably due to the push mode.

If you find any bugs, let me know.

Things I have planned:
Convert all of the maps.
Add additional "fun" things to the maps. Right now quite a few have a stock selection.
Bring back the old sprinting system. No more infinite sprint.
Make zombies walk faster. (possibly)
Find out why I can't save my custom flag icons.
Rename sides.
More polish all around.

If there are any major bugs, I will fix them as soon as possible and release a patch.

Me and Havocide were planning on renting an actual server for this, but there were money problems.

For now, I highly recommend using tunngle ( It's far more stable than hamachi. Just set up a "local" server and you and your friends can start playing.

Mirror 3 (2 parts):

Some screenshots:

The old thread has even more buried in it.

Hopefully everything works right and you guys enjoy what's done so far! There may not be as much unique equipment as I had wanted, but there's still plenty of zombies to bully! And they seem a bit smarter in this version too.

By the way, there's only one easter egg in this version. It's a vehicle. Depending on how much you like Japanese stuff, you may be shocked or delighted. ;)

Right now there's 8 maps.

Anctoville 16 and 64
Brest 64
Keren 64
Escape from Crete
El Al 16 and 64
Eppeldorf 64
Goodwood 64 (thought fh2 had a 16p version..)
Vossenack 64

The maps are a bit bigger this time around, but that just allows a bit more free roaming.

To be honest, a lot of the maps have a stock selection of equipment, and I'm sorry about that. I'll eventually release a map pack/patch with all the other FH2 maps and try to spice things up a bit. But for now, at least there's lots of zombies.  ;)

Also, :| Hi I'm pretty sure I animated that tank gif in your avatar years ago lol. It's always funny seeing my old metal slug sprites.  ;D

I think I'm going to release soon (tomorrow). There might be some minor bugs, and it's lacking a bit of polish (I can't change mini-map icons for some reason..), but I feel bad because you've all been so patient and I keep slacking because I don't like working on the maps :P

The mod is very playable at the moment and should be fun enough as is.

When I release, I will request that this thread be locked, because I'm going to make a new one.

Are those supposed to be zombies?  ;D

And isnt that Anctoville?

Yeah, I did some work on Goodwood, and set up the frame work for Ancto.

Unfortunately, I forgot to swap the team numbers in Ancto so there's a massive Brit swarm and no zombies lol.

I was converting Operation Goodwood and was about to fix some minor problems with it when the folder literally vanished without a trace.

Needless to say I rage quit from modding for the day.

Hey, Lupin! Are you planning to put on some servers, when this is all done, or will you trust this task in the hands of some big game community (762, VBIOS, hslan)?

Me and Havocide have been talking about renting a server. The problem is that I only have about $5 to my name right now and can't pay for it.

So things are a bit complicated.

People might just have to do lan over tuungle for the first release.
Thanks :). It's good to hear that you are atlest planning to do that. I, however have another question.
Is FH2 Zombies cosidered as a map-pack with zombie models and AI OR as a mini-mod?

Mini mod. You need to use a separate icon to launch it.

And there's a bunch of graphics and coding assets etc.

LOL!   ;D this made my day!


Just finished up an easteregg tank.

Havocide's toying around with some interesting vehicles as well.

Here's a couple misc shots:

Good to hear, Lupin :)

The good news is that with each day the quality is pretty much increasing exponentially.

Arrgh, we've got some more last minute problems that just happen to show up when I get ready to shove it out.

In compensation for all these delays, I'm going to add a couple more smaller maps and some more interesting vehicles and what not.

It will be done in the coming days, and hopefully problem free this time.

Could you tell me which maps did you convert to Russians by the way?

Just Vossenack.

There might be a beta tomorrow, I don't know. I've gotta wrap up some annoying problems like ticket bleed, zombies cuddling in the flag zones, etc.

The map list right now is:

Escape from crete, the classic. Early war german/brit.
Vossenack. Russians. Western counterparts of Soviet weapons.
Brest. German survivors defending.
Keren, brits with a full compliment of equipment attacking zombies.
El al 64, Italians attacking zombies with a full compliment of equipment, but each vehicle only gets 1 spawn.
El al 16, Italians defending/attacking with only a sdkfz 234.
Eppeldorf. Spawn with pistols only. Random kits tossed everywhere. Assaulting map to make it extra hard.

Hurtgen forest
Wake island

Do you mean Zombies trying to steal your tank? ^^

The code works fine for tanks, it's just civ trucks, jeeps, and other things that aren't normally locked that cause the crash.


Nevermind, trying out the "ObjectTemplate.dontClearTeamOnExit 1" code now.

Still working on it. I might be able to get an """open FH forums only beta""" out today. It will be a little.. rough, but I said I would release on Christmas.

Just need to fix the jeep locking problem first.


Now to convert Russian voice files... with bf2s lovely ogg format this is going to take forever..

Edit 2:

Just had some random crash bug on one of the maps.. and I'm not sure why. I've been working on this for the past 8 hours so this will just have to wait until tomorrow afternoon..

I'm getting a CTD when I team lock trucks/civ trucks because the enemy bots still try to enter them.

I've checked the vehicle files, and ai files, but haven't found anything related to vehicle locking. Is there any way to make trucks (civ truck in particular) properly team locked?
