Zombie Panic Source

What is Zombie Panic Source?

Zombie Panic! Source is a multiplayer Half-Life 2 first-person shooter modification and features four modes of gameplay, Zombie Panic! Survival mode, Zombie Panic! Objective mode, Zombie Panic! Hardcore mode, and ZPA mode.


It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named hl2.exe. The setup package generally installs about 81 files and is usually about 306.83 MB (321,738,574 bytes).
