Re: Z95 original CD game get it here.

Game works for me, but cutscene and terrain colors are messed up, so Desert world is all green, and options are in German for some reason.

Re: steel soldiers faction logos

If you play Skirmish mode against Green and the other factions, will they have different logos on their vehicles?

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

The additional health bar could be for vehicles. One health bar for the driver and one for the vehicle. The icon looks like the cursor when entering a vehicle. The second image shows Sniper in a vehicle, but the bar is empty. I wish that was a thing in the game. It would help elaborate how the driv...

Re: Special versions of Z DOS

As it turns out, the red logo edition is the US release. According to programmer Mike Montgomery, they "had to tone the game's difficulty down for the American market", possibly explaining the level changes.

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

Found some beta screenshots of Z on the Internet https://i.ibb.co/sVD3RRx/279879-z-screenshot.jpg From top right, there is a keypad from A to L. What would this have been used for? "Tough Rob"... I'm going to assume the 'rob' is short for 'robot'. Note that this Tough uses Pyro's avatar. In addition...

Warning: Don't buy the Z GoG/Steam/Mobile edition

Simply put, these are terrible ports.

UI & controls suck. AI & hit detection is broken, no multiplayer etc.

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

Would be nice to do some experiments to figure out the probabilities. Also, I would be great if we had data how much damage buildings take. In Z DOS I have the following data so far: Bridges Unit | Shot till half health | Shots from half health to destroyed Light 6 6 Medium 4 3 Heavy 2 2 Mo. Rocket...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

Something weird with the Robot Factory's graphics.

When it gets more damaged, some of the windows on the front just disappear.

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

I did some further experimenting with the mechanics of DOS Z, trying to figure out the probability of "driver shooting". I previously assumed that it's just a number that determines the unit's chance of hitting the driver. but it seems that the game also randomizes how many hits the driver can take ...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

Suggestion. What if we added an option to use the sound effects from the PlayStation version, since they are better quality than the PC ones? On PS1, robot voices are more clear with no static noise, and most of the unit firing sounds were remixed to sound more powerful. I have extracted most of the...
