Poll Question 301- How old is your main gaming computer?

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

In the first in a short series of hardware polls, this week’s poll is about the age of your main gaming computer.

The question was suggested by a reader who is building a mod and has decided to ensure his son’s computer can run it, since it’s quite old.

It’s a sensible philosophy but when he suggested it to me, we couldn’t find a good way of classifying PCs.

AutoVille

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

Automated enemies never get tired, never get scared and never doubt themselves.

You face three different scenarios where your only adversaries are automated enemies.

They require a different approach to live enemies; patience and thoughtfulness. Running and Gunning most likely won’t work.

Good Luck, you’re gonna need it.

After the Cuban Missile Crisis, humanity is wiped out and only machines are left.

This is a vision of a possible future.

In this adventure mod, your task is to solve puzzles and move the Handcar along the tracks until you can go no further.

Let the “robot” guide you and pay special attention to his head!

Happy 11th Birthday Me

Today is the site’s 11th birthday.

Can’t believe I have been doing this for so long.

Let’s hope the future of HL modding is bright.

You’ve been sent to what seems to be an abandoned water treatment facility.

After confirming there are no Combine left, you just need to get out.

Unfortunately, the lift needs to be powered, but once there is power, you find you are no longer alone.

Can you survive long enough to get the elevator?

A New Prospekt

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

New Prospekt wasn’t the only prison the Combine have been using.

No Sir, not by a long way.

You have been sent to another prison, along with two highly trained squad members, to asses the situation and if possible rescue prisoners..

Carefully command the squad and do your damnedest to bring back as many prisoners as you can.

You have been sent to check out a distress signal.

It appears to be coming from a log cabin in the woods.

Once inside, investigate carefully and follow any instructions given to you by Kleiner.

Be careful, it could be a trap or worse.

So, here are my thoughts from the last 3999 days…
