From the README: “Missing Information is a mod which brings the old Half-Life 2 story from prototype concepts to what you expected the game would be like when you viewed the E3 trailers. This release features the Borealis and E3 Presentation only as a public test. The Borealis is what Valve had created after Half-Life 1 was released.”

Much of this content, if not all, is considered illegal. I have refrained from posting this mod in the past because I felt it was wrong. However, I have had a change of heart because if sites like VGPro and GameSpot can make it available with no problem I don’t see why a little site like mine can’t either.
This mod features two chapters. The first, Borealis, is or seems to eb a complete set of levels on the ship. It features new weapons (Flare, fire extinguisher and an ice pick), new textures, sounds models and enemies.
The second chapter is a collection of maps used for the E3 2003 demonstration. They don’t follow a story or make any sense. The map change seems very arbitrary but you can always use the console to change maps manually if you want to. Don’t expect polished maps, many have serious problems and were never meant fro release.
I highly recommend using impulse 101 during the seafloor map because they are some very interesting weapons. I particularly liked the ones shown in images 87, 88 and 89.
I also believe that they may be other stuff that is included in the mod but can only be seen when spawned.
Chapter 1 (Borealis) consistently crashed image 31 and after 5 tries I gave up. I don’t know how much more there is. I played for approximately 20-30 minutes by then.
In my research for information for this mod I found an interesting site. It’s called e32k3 and is partly in English, the rest is in Russian. If anybody can shed some light on the author’s objective I’d be interested to learn more. Back In January 2008 he/she wrote: “In waiting of HL2:EP2 Source Code. Just waiting when it will be produced. To update E32k3 and maybe release it!” SO maybe he/she is planning to create a new mod with the maps.
I also found a reference to this mod on FPS Banana but the screenshots shown on that page don’t seem to relate to the version I played.
One last point, please don’t consider this post definitive or exhaustive. I am sure there is plenty of detail I have neglected to learn and/or present. Feel free to correct, update or just inform me and I will happily update this page to include the new information.
Below are all the maps included in the mod.
- Extract the Missing Information folder into your Sourcemods folder
- Restart or start Steam.
- Missing Information should now be listed in your Library tab.
