I found out that "I Can't Take My Eyes Off of You" by Frankie Valli is by far (to me) the creepiest song to have zombies chase you by. I had this come up today as I had to evade zombies & kept thinking of a zombie singing this to me as I was trying to run away

I think I've figured out why missions are not downloading and I've sent all the info to Six To Start. Hopefully they will fix it soon

The issue is down to not supporting the FAT filesystem, which is what my phone is on. The mission filenames contain a colon, which is not allowed by that filesystem, so the download fails. I've tried a friend's Nexus 4, which uses ext4 not FAT, and it works fine. So if your phone uses a FAT filesystem, mission download will not work until a fix is made and the app reissued

So that's why it doesn't work for some phones and does for others
Hope it gets fixed soon, I miss having the zombies while I run :(

I seem to be one of the few that isn't having trouble.  I had to re-download the missions and radio mode for season three (just starting 3), even though I had already downloaded it, and had a few errors trying to do that over cell service, but once I got on WiFi, i was right as rain. I have yet to hear radio mode as I had "continue to next mission" turned on and listened to 2 episodes that took way longer than expected, so I finished the run just as the second episode ended, and didn't get a chance to hear radio mode yet.

Don't know if it's related to the coming Zombielink migration, but I can't replay mission clips from the website anymore.

Reset my Abel Base and updated everything back up to level 4 before downloading the new season/release.  Went from 470/535 to population of 560/780. Can't wait to try the new interface this weekend (although I am just starting season 3, not 4).

The update looks good! I had to re-download both the first episode and Radio Mode for season 3.

I took screen shots to make sure everything came over, and everything did except my Mobs evaded went back to ZERO! NOOOOOOO!!!!! LOL!

Jolly Alpha Five Niner: A fanfiction

I remember helicopter sounds from the one I was riding, right beside my female pilot, the name escapes me though. I was sitting quietly beside her, headsets sitting comfortably on my brunette hair, blueish green-grey eyes scanning the area we were flying over. The pilot commented ( I don't know if she meant to keep her thoughts to herself or towards me ) about the "city" we passed over. Her words confused me, wondering if we were going to help them or not. I felt sorry for the ones who lived inside of those fences, keeping the zombies away. My thoughts were distracted when she turned her head towards me. She joked about how I knew nothing of what was really going on. This didn't surprise me, no-one tells me anything, much less be friendly, in Mullins Military Base. 

She turned on her radio, contacting a settlement I've only heard of called Abel Township. A shy man replied to her, accepting the permission to land. I knew now we were making  supply drop, which didn't sound like something that needed two people to handle. '_Then again, this is the apocalypse_' I thought to myself. The pilot turned towards me, stating we only brought half of the supplies, lying to the township!

I was surprised, genuinely, by this news. Why would anyone lie, especially in this time of crisis, about the amount of supplies being given to a settlement?! I guess she didn't acknowledge my emotions, because she mocked how I barely knew anything. I glared at her, but then she mentioned something that caught my attention. Project Greenshoot..I remember being told this before I climbed into this chopper. 
  She was about to finish her last sentence when I heard gunshots in the distance. I began to fear for our lives. They were shooting at us! Not from the Township, she stated, but then a loud hissing sound was aimed for us. 

"Who the hell has a rocket launcher?! Who the hell..?!" The pilot began before I jolted forward in my seat. We were hit! I held onto my seat and whatever else i could. My stomach flipped as we fell through the sky. The female called for help, informing Abel we were about three miles from Abel. I cried out as we crashed into something. I held onto the chopper for dear life, but my tongue was too dry to scream. 
  A voice spoke into my ear from the headsets. He was calling out to us. He told us to jump. I took a deep breath, closed my eyes, and jumped. I didn't have time to scream before I opened my parachute. I fell through some trees, getting stuck in a rather large one. I squirmed before unbuckling, landing hard on the ground. My face was scraped, but other than that I was fine. 

The same voice from Abel spoke, but no matter how many times I tried to answer, he didn't seem to hear me. I checked my headsets, sighing annoyed that the microphone was cracked, so that means I couldn't reply. He told me his name was Sam Yao from Abel Township. Sam sounded worried, only guessing that he never faced a problem like this since the outbreak. 

I heard noises and the sound of cracking wood and plants. I was soon obviously informed that I had fallen in a nest of zombies. I looked up. Sam told me to run towards the tower, which didn't seem too far ahead, maybe two or three miles? Then I was told to run. I heard the undead moans coming closer to me, so I did the most logical thing: I ran.

I've never ran faster than before the crash. They were slow zombies, but they were large in numbers, so I ran. On a few occasions, I did stop for a breather, far enough to take one, but close enough to only have a short one. I looked around, seeing supplies scattered on the ground. Deciding I might as well help the people who were helping me, I picked up the supplies and placed them in my hand-string bag. I had picked up a bottle of water, two packs of batteries, a sports bra and a USB key. I hoped they wouldn't see me as a burden on their Township if i brought supplies, but then again..I'm going to be an extra mouth to feed, an extra (possibly cold) shower to another body, another bed..I sighed, but kept my thoughts at bay while running. I was exhausted, but this is better than being dead. As I stopped for my third breathing in what I assumed two and a half miles, I found an old shirt that looked like it was worn and left there by accident. I folded it and placed it in my bag, getting up to run again.

Then his voice came back. He must've saw me running, because he called out to ask if I could. I answered with a yes, but he didn't hear me. He commented on how I was listening to his instructions to got to the tower. Running person was my nickname for the moment, making me laugh slightly as he gave me the instructions on what to do next. He commented on how I was going to leave the forest, but the "small army of zombies" behind me made me worry. He distracted me by telling me of an old saw mill to the east, and from where I was, I saw the large red signs. I nodded, though i doubted he could see me acknowledge him, and headed towards the mill.
  He seemed surprised, at least in my ears, that I had listened to him, feeling calmer about the situation. Another voice, muffled in the background that didn’t seem to sit well with Sam, saying that he can’t ask me something because I could be injured. I checked myself over as quickly as I could, seeing I had no injuries that were major, maybe a few scrapes and that’s it. A woman’s voice introduced herself as Doctor Myers, the only medic in Abel. She apologized as she told me about an old hospital on my route to Abel, asking me to check for medical supplies inside. Sam mentioned a Runner 5, which peaked my interest about this dangerous side-objective. Myers assured Sam of the zombies following the sounds of the crash, which turned into an argument of the one who fired the rocket at my chopper. I didn’t hear him again, like he was being interrupted before he could make yet another argument. Myers informed me of how everyone earns their keep, and how I may not be welcomed inside if I didn’t bring those medical supplies.

I sighed softly, but knew I had to play by the rules in this post-apocalyptic world, and with the medical supplies needed, I guess it wasn’t too much to ask. I checked behind me, relieved that I had out-ran the zombs. I didn’t see them, but their moans weren’t out of earshot. I wandered the floors of this abandoned hospital, picking up more items as I did so. The first I grabbed were two first-aid kits that had to been left in the rooms of patients. I saw a pack of batteries in what seemed to be a child’s room. ‘For toys I suppose’ I thought sadly as I picked them up. Weren’t very many in the pack, but I placed them in the backpack anyways. Another room, looked like an old kitchen for staff, held a tin of food that was dented a bit. I smelled it. It seemed freshly preserved, so I took it with me. A box of light-bulbs was in a supply closet. Again, not very many left, but still valuable. 

Sam’s voice came back after a few minutes, joking about how I had no broken legs. I heard zombies nearby, so I kept my soft chuckling to a minimal. He told me he was going to call me Runner 5, since he didn’t know my real name, and because that Abel lost a runner in this hospital, making me nervous walking around a large grave..if I could even call it that. He started describing “her”, assuming his Runner 5, in a way you would suspect that they were either together or he had been in love with her. It saddened me how he lost someone he loved in a hospital I was running through.
  A sigh passed through the headsets, the he perked up saying I could be the new Runner 5...if I made it back alive. A nervous laugh passed by my lips, hoping I was going to make it back whole and living. I didn’t know if he was bored, or if he had somehow knew I was wishing company, because he starting talking about the Runners at Abel, and how they were so important. He joked somewhere near the end, about having two legs and walking above a slow shamble. I smiled and closed my eyes for a moment, letting the cool breeze pass through my pony-tail and onto my cheeks. I sighed softly, then started walking again. Sam told me my pace was good, and that I should check the ground floor, since zombies were in the parking lot, for anything official-looking. I nodded silently, even though he couldn’t see me, and started back towards the bottom floor. 

As I walked down the hallway, I stumbled upon a large box, which read CDC. I couldn’t remember what the initials meant, but I knew it was important. I held it in my arms, since my bag would get too heavy and hurt my back, and walked around. I looked around for more supplies, but they were either useless or rotten. I walked out of the hospital the back way and rounded the building, deciding it was safer to walk around the zombies than to try to escape through them. It was only after a minute that Sam came back onto my headgear. 

He greeted me happily, saying I was on the cameras, though my figure was blurry. I smiled and waved, not seeing where the cameras really were. He soon questioned the box in my arms and called the Doctor over to see what I had found in the hospital. I looked at the box. CDC apparently meant Centers for Disease Control, feeling stupid for not knowing the initials. Myers ignored Sam’s question as she told me to protect this valuable box with my life. Holding close to my chest, I nodded, determined to keep it safe. Suddenly, Sam wondered about a shadow somewhere. I turned behind me. My eyes widened. Sam had read my thoughts. They were following me! He told me to run..and so I did. 

I ran as fast as I could. Most of them were walking, but one...just one..was catching up to me. I grew afraid and ran faster. Sam reappeared, questioning why the zombies were fast, calling me Runner 5 again while telling me they’re gaining. Doctor Myers told me to put on a burst of speed since I was nearing the gates. They couldn’t be anymore than a half mile away, since I could see it from my position. I couldn’t think anymore as I ran, but hearing the voice of a suddenly saddened Sam brought me back to my senses. He told me the one running towards me was the old Runner 5. I knew that she must’ve been very close to Sam, or something around it, and that she was extremely fast. A new voice joined in, introducing himself as Runner 7, head of Runners. He encouraged me to keep running. I nodded yet again, but a moan was right beside my ear. Runner 7 told me to not look back, for she was right behind me. 

Her horrifying moans were right next to me. A high-pitched cry escaped me lips, running as fast as I could. My breaths were heavy and hard. My legs were about ready to give out from under me. My vision was blurry from the brown hair falling in front of my eyes. She was still on my tail, but I couldn’t give up! I had to make it!

“I can make it! Please keep the gate open!” I cried out to myself, not caring who heard me anymore. Gunshots rang passed me as i approached the Township. Someone told me to run again, so putting on a burst of speed, i ran towards the township. I heard the zombie Runner that was behind me moan louder than before, then Sam came onto the radio, distraught to see his former lover/crush be shot, Doctor Myers assuring him this is how she wanted things to end. I stopped in front of the gates as Sam instructed them to be lifted, in which I walked inside.

My body was covered in sweat, my legs ready to give in from under me. I panted like a dog, tired even, but still felt i needed to run. When the people started to crowd around me, talking over one another, I felt like a tiny kitten being backed into a cage corner. Someone came from the crowd, thank god it for being Sam, and ordered everyone to move away, understanding I need to take in the area. I heard someone whisper about Project Greenshoot in a hush whisper. I ignored it for the most part, too tired to think anymore.

Later that day, when the sun was setting, they gave me a bed to sleep in. Sam had kept a close eye on me, as well as Doctor Myers, checking my vitals and seeing I was taken care of. I gave them all of my supplies. I didn’t want any of it, even when they insisted I take a bottle of water. I smiled and told them I owed them everything I earn for giving me a place of rest and some food to eat. As the head of Runners, which I learned his name was Evan, led me to the housing area where Runners sleep, some townspeople sneered at me, calling me a freeloading bitch and “the replacement Runner”. I was saddened by this, but Evan reassured me that they would get used to me soon enough.
  I lay in my bed that night, tears freely falling down my silent cheeks. I felt like I had taken the place of a once-beloved Runner. I felt like I had taken away something the Township had for a very long time, even though it was even my fault she was undead...I hugged the slightly dirty blanket and closed my eyes. I let out a sigh and fell slowly to sleep, hoping that I can show the people I’m a good person...or at least show I’m not pretending to be anyone or anything. I will be a good Runner..I owe them this much.

Role Playing  - 
 
Looking around this forgotten village, I relived old memories i wished I could forget. It wasn't fair, but what could I do? I didn't know. A soft chuckle escaped my cracked, dry lips. My eyes closed, falling to the ground yet again. I was a runner, fairly new, but after many months of staying in my new home of Abel Township, I felt happier than before the outbreak. I felt at home, at peace, like i was finally important to someone, or some people..

Tears rolled down my cheeks. I walked through what used to be my home. A stuffed rabbit lay beside a broken motorbike. A pair of headgear was beside a broken jar of Marmite. Medicine bottles sewn throughout the place. An old file was also on the grounf, ruined and unimortant now. Another chuckle escaped me, laughing before the storm of cries. I couldn't stop. It was my fault...it was my fault...

Sam...Maxine...Evan...Sarah..Molly...Ed...Jack, Eugene..Why...I'm all alone..heh..I miss all of you..I blubbered under my wet breath. They tried to protect me, yet it was all in vain...now...the last of the survivalists have died off from this township, either Zombies or took the "kind" offer of refuge in New Canton. I clenched my fists and screamed as loud as I could. Why did I let them defend me when I was supposed to protect them?!

Idiots...!! You died because of  my mistake!! Why didn't you listen to me?! I screamed into thin air. I didn't care anymore. I cried hard and long..but not before i heard the moans of the undead nearing me. I stood up and grabbed as many supplies as i could into my bag and ran. I was slightly blinded by the salty tears, but i had to keep running...that's what i was meant to do. I decided I was going to live on my own..and live how they would wast me to live. I gave my supplies to the nearest, and most needy, settlement, before running off again. I stayed at an old shed that was abandoned years ago, before the outbreak. I laid on the highest, strongest point before sleeping that night.

I still regret that day..as if it were yesterday or the present..New Canton somehow lured many zombies towards us during the night while managing to take down our gates and security. I grabbed my trusty ax and rifle, along with a bow and some arrows. My closest of friends were by my side every step of the way, evacuating and protecting the people while killing the oncoming horde. I told them to leave everything to me when there were no more than five or six..but no..

I awoke with a start. My hands covered my eyes, more tears. Luckily, morning came, and the zombies were away from my location. I ran back to Abel again, to gather supplies for the other settlements for the day. Afternoon arrived sooner than expected, and i saw a few zombs heading my way. i stood at that spot, staring at them. This was my greatest regret.

There they were, in their zombified states, still wearing their gear when they helped me fight..I smiled softly, but saddened tears fell s i raised my rifle at their heads.

I love you guys so much...I thank you for giving me the home, love, and security i always wanted and needed..I choked as their moans gradually came closer to my position. I'll see you in the next life...I'll bury you somewhere nice..I..I'm so sorry...

Before I knew it, their bodies were on the ground..I wanted to join them so badly, but in a mixture of voices, I heard them cheering me on, supporting me to keep living and help the others from this tragedy...I nodded at their invisible help, and grabbed my supplies, running again.

I am Runner 5 I thought And i will not give up


Because I know that they still believe in me

Anybody have a list of the names of the clips for Season 1? 

I was 3/4 of the way through Season 1's radio mode when ZR4 came out. I was just told by support that there's no way to transfer that progress into ZR4 other than by simply starting S1 radio mode and just letting it run until I get close to my other clips. It'd be nice to have a complete list so that I can stop this particular run at the right time.

Thanks!

I was working my way through S1 radio separately so I heard all the clips, sounds like I'll have to start again. Not sure I can bear S2 radio again though, so dull

I really don't want to bother the devs because I'm sure they're busy with all of the bugs the new version has, but has anyone else had a problem with their base / supplies being waaaay different in the new app from the old one? When I logged in and synced, it said I have over 1000 supplies and only 2 materials, whereas it says I have around 5 and 10 in the old app. I've been playing on the old app to give them time to figure it all out; do you think I should just bite the bullet and play on the new app before the issue gets resolved?

Season Two  - 
 
I did my first run with the new app two days ago. Apart from problem withs the audio sometimes (the first syllables of the pick up sounds not playing "up a bottle of water") and the distance notifications not playing (yes, they are enabled in the options), the final story clip never played and I ended up aborting the mission. The final clip is also still "locked" in the mission information so it was not a problem of the audio just not being audible.
This progress also won't synch with the old website (but maybe that last part is intended?)

I sometimes had trouble with the old apps audio too so that part may be on my hardware (a OnePlus One) but the mission not finishing is disheartening for a couch potato like me that realls has to fight to finish a 35 minute run. :(

The mission in question was S2-6 Let The Dogs Come Out.

Is this a known problem?

Seems lots of people are having the app crash on the last clip.  I wonder if it has to do with the new settings for auto-playing the next mission and playing the "next on" clips?

I think it was intended to have the old ZombieLink not sync with the new ZombieLink, which sucks until they get the new one up and running.

if u think about it, a perfect use for the airdrop missions is running to the supermarket; if ur picking up a little, make it a round trip, alot one way, and hav a family member pick u up wen ur done...do u think its a good idea?

It's a great idea, lots of people run to the post office and other places that require little to carry.

Really enjoying the Radio Abel feature of ZR... especially today.

The length of my runs typically coincide with the length of a mission (roughly 5K over a half hour).  Today, I missed a turn during my run and ended up adding an extra 2K to it this morning.  It was fun hearing Radio Abel between songs until I made my way back home.  :)

Story of how a great app can go downhill, IMO
Paul Werner originally shared:
 
Went for a bit of a jog today. I also tried tracking via the updated +Zombies, Run! but it crashed after playing most of the audio clips. I also forgot to turn on the zombie chases because this update needed a new install so I forgot to turn that on before the run.

Near the end of the run I kept going thinking at first that the last audio clip would play and when +MyFitnessPal told me I was hitting the hour mark I knew something was up. After I stopped I found the crash message. Hopefully this gets cleared up soon

Zombies, Run! used to be a great app with no crashes and didn't make you pay to disable the 5 day timer between story missions (which I already paid to play before their update... grr)

They always screwed up new releases. It happened on season 2, it happened on season 3 and it happens now. Give them some time, they'll sort it out eventually...
