Project Zomboid is an open-ended zombie-infested sandbox. It asks one simple question – how will you die? Whether surviving in Knox County free-roam or controlling Indie Stone mascot Baldspot in his quest to save his injured wife Kate – death is always a certainty. Quite how long you manage to put it off is another matter…

Hi,I just bought the game. I installed and tested it yesterday on my computer at home (os x) and it was fine.I wanted to run the game from my office's Windows PC (yes, my job is cool^^) and I just couldn't launch it. I have the dialog box that allows to choose the screen resolutions, then nothing once I validate my choice. I tried both windowed and fullscreen mode. I had to kill the process within the task manager.
However, congrats for this great game, I strongly hope things will go easier for you with your new recruit!

Oh, I forgot : Windows 7 Ultimate Edition 32, AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 2.60GHz, RAM 2Go, NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS
Project Zomboid 0.2.0rRC2

Please make sure you have the correct version of Java installed. Have a read through this support FAQ for a few tips:

dThunder746, can you give me a link to install this correct version of Java because I have had Project Zomboid for over a week now and I have not been able to play this game yet and I am beginning to get kind of annoyed trying what people are suggested and not getting any results. 
P.S. I know nothing about programming or how it works, so that is one of the main reasons why it is so difficult for me to get  this to  work.

I just bought the game today and i have been trying to get it to go past the black login screen for at least 5 hours and im pretty much done with the whole bloody zomboid crap, very bad first impression.(It seems all 32 bit systems have the same problem)
