Guides on emulating older games

"ZPC (Zero Population Count) is a first-person shooter computer game developed by Zombie Studios in 1996 which uses the Marathon 2 engine.

It was noted for its stylized look adapted from artwork by Aidan Hughes (also credited with the game's concept). The story focuses on Arman, an exiled 'Warrior Messiah' who has come of age and sets out to reclaim his throne."

For other games based on the Marathon 2 engine, see Marathon 2, Marathon Infinity, Damage Incorporated, and Prime Target.

Far out! Sorting thru downloads I found the original executable demands to see the disc and an image of it ain't good enough. The file "ZPC K'ed" seems to be a cracked or kracked edit which eliminates the physical disc requirement, so I rename this file "ZPC (discless)". Now look out for the "Movies" folder which comes with hidden status. If you lose access to the Movies the game plays on without them, and you might not know what you're missing. I made mine a new Movies folder - not hidden, and moved it into the data folder, it plays the movies outside the data folder how it comes, but also plays them when the Movies folder is more conveniently stored inside the data folder. Got cheat codes here and cheats listed inside the "Game Doctor".

I've uploaded a second, more complete archive and added an external download link for it. It's a Toast image from original media with docs in PDF.

Also added the game's docs in zip format as the game's "manual" download.

Very very cool game with a GREAT music soundtrack. I liked the music so much I ripped the tracks from the audio resource files (same format as the Marathon data files) , spliced together the loops in some audio software, and burned an audio CD with music tracks from the game. Yeah, guess I'm crazy.... hahaha Smile
