What The Headcrab! Episode 10

29th May 2016

A day late. Okay, Okay, I’m sorry. This was supposed to be a Saturday thing but I reformatted my PC on Friday afternoon and it took longer than usual. I changed operating systems otherwise I would have simply copied my back up image across. It’s 95% done now, so PHEW!

Before we actually start the show, I want to tell you about some very important changes to the format.

Firstly, the show will be moving to YouTube. I will continue to make the MP3 download available, but you will no longer be able to play it via the built in player directly on the site. However, modern browsers, like Google Chrome, can actually play the file within the browser itself, so that might not be an issue.

This change may necessitate a change to the menu items, but I’ll decide on that in the very near future.

Secondly, I will only be providing the links to the mods, not the “commentary” as well.

Thirdly, There will also be coverage of what’s been happening on RTSL, including the Poll Question and other posts, plus links to interesting comments and discussions.

Annnnyway, what’s been happening in the HL SP world lately?

Final Thoughts

I think the new format will work well and I hope you will too.

Until next time, remember, Finishing Half-Life is just the Beginning!

    You can use an online service like http://www.listentoyoutube.com and convert your video to .mp3
    I didn’t test it myself, though

  2. The podcast is now available.

  3. AI

    I use “WinAVI” to convert my files. While mp3 works well for music, mp4 works much better for video! I also use “VLC” to play video, it seems to play almost all video formats!

  4. Reverse Design’s article was also posted on /r/Half-Life several days ago. I take it that you visit this subreddit quite often?

    1. No, not quite often, just once a week when I send the Mod Of The Week to them.

  5. Just a point which I meant to mention previously but never got around to. Those Kate and Barniel models appear to be player models for multiplayer.

    The singleplayer counterparts by Romka, (HD versions of the characters from Azure Sheep and Point of View) can be found online though.
