[FINAL] ZOMBIES: Extreme Epidemic Edition

Now that this is working in Zandronum, figured I should cross post this here

[About ZOMBIES: Extreme Epidemic Edition]

This is a modification of ZOMBIES TC, a pretty much ancient and outdated total conversion for Doom II.
Aside from packaging this mod up nicely for use with ZDoom, this also adds a few new features and fixes
not in the original mod, such as:

- New realistic looking sky textures! (Looks best in GZDoom)
- HORDES of zombies! Where there was one zombie before, there are now up to ten! Fight your way through swarms of the undead!
- Speaking of zombies, zombie enemies now act like zombies! Good ol' slow lumbering rotting Romero-style zombies!
- Cops and unarmed civilians are now friendly! Cops attack enemies! Civilians....well, are pretty much zombie chow!
- Weapons redone in DECORATE! New sprites by ZikShadow!
- High quality music from both the American and European cuts of Dawn of the Dead! Extra sounds and ambient effects from Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead!
- When humans (friendlies, rockers) die, they now rise and join the rotting ranks of the undead!
- You can now choose to play as a cop, biker, or thug! (Really the only differences are what weapons you start with)
- 8 player starts for co-op multiplayer!
- A new inventory system
- Various fixes and tweaks
Spoiler: Credits (Open)

Original mod by T.C.H.G.
Grenade code and graphics modified from Weapons Resource Wad and Skulltag, bounce sound from Quake
Sky textures originally from Ultimate Doom (episode 4) and WolfenDoom by Laz Rojas, modified by AstroCreep
Explosions from Duke Nukem 3D
All other graphics from original ZOMBIES TC or modified by AstroCreep
Music from Dawn of The Dead (aka Zombie aka Zombi).
Additional DECORATE by Captain J
Weapon sprites by ZikShadow
LAW - SureShot (Model + Skin)
Hunting Rifle - GAA1992 and Chronoteeth
KABAR - Venom (Model) + Chimp_ (Skin)
Hand Sheet - Monolith + Weapon Hands Sprites Thread
Revolver - Dynamo and HexenMapper
M60 - TwinkeMasta + Flamshmizer + Kimono
Weapon Sounds - Navaro + Magmacow
Grenades modified by AstroCreep
Extra Powerup Sprites:
Night Vision Goggles from Duke Nukem 3D
Surgical Kit from Strife
Morphine Syringe from Wolfenstein 3D
Cocaine Sprite by AstroCreep (edited from MediKit replacement in ZOMBIES TC)
Zombie Guts from Brutal Doom
Berzerk/Adrenaline from Doom
Extra sounds from Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead
Extra zombie sprite by BFG
Radio sprite from ECWolf Tech Demo by Executor



NOTE: Although it is possible to play this with ZDoom, it is best to use GZDoom, as my modified graphics are in PNG and look like shit when played in ZDoom
As of v3.0, this now works in Zandronum
Due to changes, crouching is required and autoaim is recommended to be shut off.


TOOLS USED
SLADE, Photoshop CS6, WhackEd

Spoiler: changelog (Open)
UPDATE - version 1.02
Rifle updated
Zombies now drop items randomly
Grenades don't drop as often
Added decal code


UPDATE - version 1.04
Integrated with ZikShadow's weapons (grenade sprites edited by AstroCreep)
Removed weapons from first level
Changes to player classes - Thug starts with revolver, 200 armor and 4 grenades; Biker starts with Rifle; Cop starts with M-16 and 100 armor
MIDI files now in base pk3s - no need for separate patch
Various tweaks to Dehacked and DECORATE


UPDATE- version 1.5
NEW INVENTORY SYSTEM!
The powerups have been tweaked to be in an inventory like Heretic! There are 7 new items that can be picked up and used whenever you want!
Gas Mask - Travel through hazardous environments!
Night Vision Goggles - See in dark places!
Surgical Kit - Portable health!
Adrenaline - Quick power boost! Tear through zombies!
Cocaine - Illegal drugs! 45 second speed boost!
Morphine - Powerful painkiller! Reduces damage taken, but distorts vision!
and my personal favorite
Zombie Guts - Smear some of this on you to repel enemies for 10 seconds!

The gas mask and n/v goggles replace their respective original powerups, so can be found in-game, but are also rarely dropped by cops. Cops can also (once again,rarely) drop surgical kits, adrenaline, or morphine. Thugs/Bikers can drop all of those, minus the goggles and gas mask, but also occasionally drop cocaine. Zombies drop zombie guts, obviously.

OTHER CHANGES
Fixed grenade sprite and revolver pickup sprites
Player classes now start with a few items, varying by class
Removed easy version
Various decorate tweaks

8/23/18 Version 2.0
Added palette swapped zombies
Added extra sounds (radios w/broadcasts)
Added "scatter" code


9/6/18 HD Music version 2.0
All music has been converted to OGG format to save space, a few tracks have had the volume turned down, as some were louder than others, and also
I have added 5 extra songs for future use :wink: Please replace zombies-mp3.pk3 with zombies-ogg.pk3

Whoaaaa man. Really taking me back.


Did you keep the topless stripper soulsphere replacement?


My favorite part was always the middle finger BFG sprite replacement that looked like the finger was badly broken.
