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.

TREE: Why Chapter Titles are so Important

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

One of the things that has struck me about replaying Half-Life is the chapter titles.

They are such an important part of the game yet they seem to get so little attention.

What they do is help divide the game into neat little chunks and this in itself is important but they also help frame those chunks into distinct elements.
