Romero Mod

Description
The baying of the hordes in the distance always chills my heart. Am I out of ammo? If I run, will I make it next door or just get swarmed? How can we move without getting separated? Oh, God... the tortured moans of the undead again. Lord, how I miss home.

About

Romero Mod is a total conversion mutation for Left 4 Dead 2, inspired by George A. Romero's masterpiece zombie films.

The mod has the following goals:

Evoke a feeling of genuine dread
Improve game world immersion
Dramatically change the strategies required to win
Create something fun!

in terms of specifics, changes include:

* Massively increases the number of commons that populate the world
* Zombies are slower, more deliberate, more shambling
* Being hit by a zombie is a bigger deal - escaping from even a small group starts to become a challenge
* Headshots become much more important, though a shotgun at close range can work
* Weapons and pickups are tweaked towards greater realism (including item distribution)
* Gore is turned up
* Pacing is slowed down

As always, playing with humans is recommended for the best experience.

Romero Mod is open source software. Want to see how it's done or make modifications? Visit http://romeromod.github.io/Romero-Mod/ for more details.

great mod, the hordes spawn at the same pace so like you will end up dying so easily cuz you can't trace back or explore without getting surprised by a mob after barely survivng one, which is the reason you go to explore for things.

If they could turn the hordes spawning rate like very rarely, it would be peak.

This is cool I like it one problem there is way to many zombie's like seriously way to many tone it down a bit with like a toned down version or something cause you almost have the best slow moving zombie mode but sadly because of the fact there is way to many zombie's it ruins it for me like I get having a lot but you have made it to where there is way to many and it just isn't fun please if you see this make a toned down version that makes it less crazy in the zombie's count cause right now this is just ungodly cause like I am looking for a slow moving zombie mode to use when playing resident evil map's and yours was so damn close but then oh god to many zombie's so many that is was impossible but enough sorry for the text wall

I understand the main point, but it's too much like quicksand. It can even be a configuration that makes it impossible to walk properly at the beginning of the day. Another negative point is that there are too many zombies and they are very annoying. Not recommended.

@xaroth8088
Same like the Cynical guy. How do you obtain the older version? I liked it better and I wanted to show it to my friend (Great mod BTW) and she couldn't run it at all.
