Custom Steam Gridview Icons

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

Back in April of this year, I wrote an article called 7 Things I wish Steam would allow me to do. Well, number 7, or part of number 7 is now available and since I only recently found out about it, I thought you might have missed it too.

It’s a feature called Custom Steam Gridview Icons and it allows you to add or replace the images you see for ANY game or application you have added to your library.

TREE: Opposing Force Music

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

The Half-Life: Opposing Force soundtrack was composed by Chris Jensen. It was reused for the Half-Life: Blue Shift soundtrack. The Half-Life soundtrack by Kelly Bailey replaces the original one in the Steam releases of Opposing Force and Blue Shift.

However, it’s easy to get the original back. Below is a file that contains all the music, along with isntructions of how to use it.

Here is part of the text from the readme_opfor.txt.

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

As part of the The Replay Experience Experiment, here is the first of a number of podcasts, discussing one of the game we have played.

In this case, it’s Half-life. Joining me for this one is Don and Emo. Don is a modder with tremendous experience and has released a number of mods/maps including, Radix. Emo is from Russia and has made Typical Disaster.

We discuss Half-Life from a number of different aspects. There are a couple of videos mentioned in the podcast and they can be found on the Resources & Curiosities.

Both Don and Emo have agreed to respond to any comments you may make, and of course I will too.
