Anyone playing this?

Fun, but quite difficult!

Firearm noise WILL bring more zeds to your location. The Sawn Off Shotgun is currently enchanted with Endless Ammo. This may seem cool, but it's a beginners trap. Even while squeezing off 90 shells per minute, I met my end. They just keep coming!

Melee weapons act somewhat realistic. Swinging an axe will tire you out quickly, while smaller weapons like knives allow the enemy to get too close for comfort.

Hunger isn't working quite right in this build, so it doesn't need as much attention. Thirst, however, is working. I found myself hunched over many strange sinks, lapping away like a dog.

It's still kind of buggy... Parts of the UI disappear (taking the hotkeys with them), leaving you no way to check/advance various skills. Safehouse reinforcements don't always save correctly. I'm often too hot and too cold within a few hours in-game.

This has come a long way since 1.5. Go give it another look!

All alone... in a zombie apocalypse.

If you bought it through Desura, you'll need to uninstall / reinstall to get it running. The auto update won't work correctly on older builds.

What's the current version? I think mine is like .2 Alpha or something and it seems to be working, but I didn't get any prompts to update.

I think I'm playing 2.9 Build 008. It's the one with the new inventory and loot boxes.

The .2.0r or .2.0q build still launches and plays fine until you try to update. Then it just freezes up.

Ok, so I got the newest version and I've been playing some... Not sure if I like the way inventory works now, but whatever.
Is there any way to take just one item out of a container/drop just one? For example, I come to a cabinet with two can openers in it. I only need one, but I can't figure out a way to get just one, short of taking them out, dropping them, and then picking one up.

That's driving me nuts also. I'm having better luck when clicking and dragging instead of the 'grab' command. Sometimes you can prevent grabbing the second item by moving while the status bar is still above your head.

Other random stuff...
-Hold E to open and enter windows (and hop some fences). Every window will open eventually, but many houses have alarms. Most doors are locked.

- The white inventory and loot boxes are really annoying. They are just copies of the real boxes. I drag them both offscreen so they don't interfere with the black boxes. (some sort of bug)

- Sheet Ropes do not work yet.

- Furniture cannot be moved in this build.

- Crafting window is gone. Right click on an item to see any current crafting options available.

- Since this version of the game seems to be fighting against the player constantly, I'd recommend checking out ZSpawn. I found this mod on the Indie Stone forum. You can spawn in any item in the game. Major cheating, I know. It's an easy way to check out the building mechanics (spawn in a bunch of planks, nails, and a hammer).

So have you lost the health and skills screens yet? This is my biggest gripe. Good luck.

I haven't lost any screens yet, but I have died about 4 times already >__>
I also can't seem to find painkillers anywhere, which is pretty annoying.
