Patch 1.04 for No More Room in Hell

The living dead got a bit of a workout, cosmetic care, and are now ready to storm your safe houses again! Patch 1.04  (Beta) has been released for No More Room in Hell today, adding a new map, as well as a number of subtle changes to gameplay, optimization and previous maps. For example, nms_flooded now has more ammo around the map, and ammo to rifles, shotguns ,etc. will now spawn. Furthermore, the “objective” on nms_flooded is to survive ten waves, after which the choppah arrives!

Furthermore, a new map called nms_isolated has been added to the mod, recreating the farm-house from The Night of the Living Dead. Unlike in the movie though, it does not seem likely that you will escape!

If you have Desura you can download the updated mod now. In any other case, check this site for download links and details about the Patch.
