Get Mods Working

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

This post should help get some of those mods that stopped working with the recent Half-Life 2 and Episode One update, working again.

Fingers crossed.

Blackness fades to a cliff scene…. Don’t let the beautiful view fool you, things are about to get pretty ugly!

Work your way through a small group of buildings and into an underground Combine base.

Can you escape after stealing a sample from near the thumpers (That’s a clue if you get stuck)?

Insurrection

for Half-Life

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

You start on a space station in the Gamma sector, you suddenly find yourself under attack and need to escape. Fortunately, there is an escape pod.

Unfortunately, you get picked up by the military and your quest to escape begins again!

Poll Question 174 – How do you feel about starting a mod with no weapons?

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

In the HunterVille mapping competition, one of the “Honourable Mentions” starts without a weapon. Unfortunately I didn´t find the crowbar the author placed near the beginning, so I had to struggle through until I found another one (It was right next to me, so it was completely my fault!)

At the beginning I was incredibly frustrated, but that frustration turned to motivation quite quickly. I knew I must have missed something but I wanted to see if I could still finish the map.

New Update Breaking New and Old Mods?

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

I have basically copied all the replies from a forum thread started by JM Kasperg, a well-known modder.

Essentially, the latest update from Valve, has caused some mods to stop working. It’s the same for some mods in development. His original post explains things.

Half-Life 2: Barney Trouble

Jasper posted this on the forum and having way through watching the first part I knew I must post it for all to see. It’s a machinima like no other I have ever seen. I sat riveted to both parts for the full length.

This is a superb creation and I salute the author(s).

Enjoy!

Weapon Reload Hack

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

I wish I were more observant because I might have noticed this sooner.

Jasper emailed me to tell me that he was watching his partner, known as Scraps on PP, play Strider Mountain. She changed weapons from the AR2, which had 1 shot left, to another weapon. he suggested that she reload the AR2 because she will need it.
