Half-Life 2 JBMod V0.5

Half-Life 2 Weapon Sound Pack

Description: This sound pack replaces the following:

-Firing Sounds: -357
-Pulse Rifle
-MP7 + Grenade Launcher sound
-Grenade + Explosions sounds
-SPAS12 Double-Shot
-Combine Turret
-Airboat Turret (the original one sounded too weak)

-NPC Firing Sounds for the USP, Glock (Alyx Gun), Pulse Rifle, MP7, and Flaregun

-NPCs: -Hunter Firing, Rotor, Weapon Windup and Cooldown sounds
-Gunship Firing, Rotor, Weapon Windup and Cooldown sounds
-Dropship Firing and Rotor sounds
-Combine APC Missile Firing sound
-Hopper Turn-on sound
-Strider alert, Idle, Pain, and Firing sounds
-Zombie alert, Pain, and Attack sounds
-Poison Zombie (the guys w/ the black headcrabs) Pain and Death sounds
-Turret Firing sound
-Combine Sniper Firing sound (usually i keep this in no matter what

I added a bit of reverb and echo to some of the sounds. The zombie(s) and strider sounds were from HL and the various Combine weapon firing sounds from Doom 3's Plasma Gun. The USP is taken from HL2 itself ("why is the USP louder when the Combine uses it?"), the MP7 is just a mix of various other sounds, and the Combine Sniper and Grenade Launcher is from Ghost Recon.

Description: A brand new Half-Life 2 DM mod. Battle it out online with a selection of completely new weapons.

Weapons currently working ingame:

The Toothpick:
This is a small piece of wood, used to clean between teeth.

The Zero Point Field Emitter:
Useing similar technolgy as the grav gun, this allows the user to propel themselves through the air and to also hover in a single place.

Half-Life 2 Water Reflections Mod

Description: This modmakes all the water in HL2 reflecctive in d3d8/8.1 just like it is in d3d9, yes it's based off of the other mod that was usppoused to do this but didn't. The other mod had a material that was refernced from the testmap and made the testmap's water look reflective but other then the testmap it wasn't applied to Hl2's main game What this does is use modified materials from hl2 to apply the reflected water to d3d8 and d3d8.1.

Half-Life 2 Pong Source V0.8 Mod

Description: Pong as you all know was a simple video game based on ping pong.

Then many years later when video games had got a lot better graphically, a team of modders took the idea of Pong and put it in to the Quake universe. Instead of two paddles, there was two teams with the ingenious addition of weapons. The idea was still the same, get the ball into the "goal" but now you could hit the Ball with weapons. The bigger the gun, the ferther and faster the ball traveled. It was fun.

But things change and in less years than it took to get from the original Pong to Quake graphics, games have changed graphically again, to what they are now.

So here at PongSource we have decided to make our own version of Pong for the Half-life 2 universe. It has Guns, It has Goals, but most of all we think ITS FUN!!!

PongSource has a new play mode as a server-side option. Weapon Damage can now be turned off, so that players can concentrate on the ball and scoring, rather than getting shot on the way.

We call this No Weapon Damage mode because we can't think of anything better, and if the server hosts play nicely servers should have (NWD) in their hostname to prevent confusion between the two server types.

- MP7 is more accurate
- RPG is HL1 style (shoot with or without laserpointer)
- Combine(s) drop the weapons when shot by MegaPhysCannon (they don't disappear)
- Shotgun can hold 8 shells (HL1 style)

Update #1 - Sunday 8th May 2005

Half-Life 2 Das Roboss SP Expansion

Description: Combine forces are constructing a ginormous robot code named "Das Roboss". You must infiltrate their uber bunker and stop this madness. The fate of the world is in the balance. Not technically a mod, but more of an map expansion, Still fun!


Half-Life 2 The Hidden Mod Playtest

Description: The Hidden is a team based multiplayer modification for Half-Life 2. A total conversion, this mod adds many brand new characters, weapons and levels for your enjoyment.


Half-Life 2 The Bitter End Beta 1 Mod

Description: Fight hordes of zombies until death, the more points you get the better weapon you buy!


Half-Life 2 CMod V1.01

Description: The aim of this mod is to make minor but important improvements to the normal HL2 single player game, completely retaining the character of the original game, but fixing certain issues present in the original game.

Efficient pickup mode:

When toggled on, items (health, armour and ammo) are only picked up if their entire contents can be used. No more picking up a 25h box with 99h. Impulse 204 toggles mode. Note that you will need to toggle efficient pickup off to collect ammo from an ammo crate. Also note returns to the default value, on, when new map segment is loaded.

Ladders unaffected by Use:

A recent change to the normal HL2 release has been that the "use" key mounts and dismounts players from ladders. This prevents the player from picking up objects while on a ladder. Given that jump also dismounts the player, CMod removes the use of "use" with regard to ladders, so players can once again pick up objects while on a ladder.


Half-Life 2 Art of Ascension RPG Mod

Description: Art of Ascension is a free RPG modification for Half-Life 2. Art of Ascension combines the spirit of online role playing games with the faster battling pace of classical first-person shooters. Players increase their character's level and enhance their abilities by battling to gain exerience. With higher levels comes training points to upgrade their weapons and attributes.


Enjoy! :)

That list does not contain all currently released mods. It incorrectly states that Mech Mod has a public beta release for HL2 when it does not. The only 2, I do not list are Half-Life 2: Escort The VIP which is in french with an english translation currently upcoming and no blood cfg which is totally useless due to the nature of the game. However, users may wish to use either list as to their descretion.

would it be possibvle for you to rate the popularity of the MP ones if they have alot of servers and such?

Jun 6 2005, 2:02pm Anchor

Good Idea. Hidden is currently approaching beta, and popularity should become a cinch - we have several 24/7 dedicated servers lined up. I'll keep azzkiker informed.

Jun 13 2005, 9:08pm Anchor

the guy who wanted me to make "no blood" was able to buy the game after it was released :P
