Romero Mod

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.


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.

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.

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.

@Cynical: older versions can be found by poking through the source code over at https://github.com/romeromod/Romero-Mod

Any way you can upload an older version of this mod? Genuinely enjoyed the old style and was wondering if we could get the old version as a separate file? @xaroth8088

Glad to see this updating again - I had started working on a private fork to use in the meantime. Thanks for getting back into it :)

had a weird glitch where all my guns had less ammo in a clip, handgun drew ammo from a shotgun's reserve, and my shotguns had 360-720 reserve ammo. after about a full morning of testing I found out its being caused by this mod which sucks bc its my favorite. Is this supposed to happen?

other weird things i noticed is that the glitch lets me use melee and grenades while incapacitated
