Xash3D is a custom Gold Source build from a scratch. Xash3D overcomes obsolete Gold Source engine's limits and provides for you a new quality of gaming experience and modmaking capabilities, for example: higher limits for bsp-models, studiomodels scaling, realistic values of lighting on server side, entity patch technology support, support of additional map types, support of precaching "on the fly", support for using real HD-textures (up to 4096 x 4096 px) for maps, models, sprites and decals in any played mod and many other features...

Simply awesome, I played a few mods on this engine and had no problems whatsoever. Has some graphical improvements over the standard goldsrc (and a lot more with xashXT).
In my HL modding days I always thought that it would be cool to just release your mod as a standalone game as well - it would reach much wider audience. Now this was made possible with Xash3D.
I also found out that the engine was ported to Android - finally Half-Life (and countless mods) on your phone! The only thing missing now is a linux port (though it ran just fine in wine, but still - native would be better)

Works better!
Better Optimized!
now i can play Brutal Doom with NO PROBLEMS!
Thanks a lot for this man!!!
i have used it before but i wasn't a fan of this Engine
it was kinda unstable , but i think it was my PC's fault
now it works perfectly!
Thanks a lot man , seriously , you did a serious awesome work!

It's not perfect (yet), but it's way better than choosing between OpenGL (framerate tank and sound stuttering on every dynamic light) and Software (genuinely looks like 100% ****).

The developer appears to be very active and has rebuilt GoldSrc to be bigger and better, utilizing the processing power you see on modern computers versus the Windows 95's and 98's.

Try it out, and if you don't like it in its current state, just verify your cache, no harm done.

The good old Goldsrc Engine was easy to mod and brought a lot of fun. My all time favorite engine to mod for. You put years of work into this ressurection and the results are just amazing. I appreciate all the hard work and i am very pleased with this engine. I feel like back in 1998. The additional features are great and XashXT offers many very interessting entities and possibilities. I am looking forward to the future progress of this project. Thank you very much for this!

P.S. If i understand google translator correctly, we may can expect even more great progress next year with the possibility of a new renderer after Paranoia 2 has been released. Keep up the great work!

Nice, nice indeed

A very good step in open source development

I really like this engine. If the graphics can be enhanced, it is superb. Maybe, I'm thinking of making a mod with this game!

The engine works great. There are some minor problems (some already fixed) like Gluon Gun being strange and some incompability with mods. Well, but still this is great :D


I know this project well, participated in testing and developing :)

Aside from few glitches this engine is overall GLORIUS !
