Gold Source (also known as Gold Src) is a heavily-modified version of the original Quake 1 engine, that powered some of the most critically acclaimed games of it's day:

  • Half-Life
  • Half-Life: Opposing Force
  • Half-Life: Blue Shift
  • Team Fortress Classic
  • Counter-Strike
  • Day of Defeat
  • and many more.

A powerful and versatile engine for it's time, it helped propel modding forward quite a bit with its mod development tools. And even though it's already 10+ years old, it's mod projects are still going strong.

What? No download? I wanted to make things with it... It's a nice engine. I mean, if some huge game company like Bethesda were to use it they'd be shunned but... Still nice for an Idie game or a 96-03 game.

Would be nice if that engine was open-source.

Add a bitmap image called splash.bmp in gfx/shell. Either that or you could set it to use a map as the background.
