My dream coming true!
I concur with the idea of creating low poly models to suit the aesthetic of the engine. High res never really worked for me anyway. But apart from that, it's looking marvelous in capturing the atmosphere of HL2, but also adding a new layer on top of it all just be taking things away. It's strange, isn't it? But it'll feel like a fresh experience regardless.
I could never make this project a reality myself, I don't have the know-how. But I'm sure glad someone has heard our strange prayers and answered them ;)
Keep it up!
I alwys wondered if a project like this would be attempted. To be honest, I love the idea but am still devided over how certain core elements to HL2 could even be replicated in HL1, physics puzzles for instance, and needless to say the gravity gun.
Im actually excited for this. I have weird taste in wanting to see the game reduced to the blocky aesthetic of older engines full of charm.
I support this all the way, you've done an astounding job do far!
Really, just love it.
Delicious with sauce.
I totally dig the older pale/albino texture they used to have. And that eye glistening effect is neat! Nice work! The new texture looks brilliant.
There are already a number of mods attempting to recreate the feels of the early Half-life... but I wish you luck all the same on development.
Looking forward to seeing what you have to show us.
I've played this a number of times through already. And I love it. It feels familiar of Half-life, but also feels new. The combat, oh boy, that's a blast. The guns feel like they have real punch to them, and sound great too. Map design is fun, I like that Xen has a more hellish Doom-ified feel with Pit-drones looking like demons, and the fleshy growths clinging to walls.
I know this is outdated now, but if it's anything to show then I can't wait for the finished product.
This one has been around for a while now, it's got meat to its foundations and has something to offer.
This is the Episode 3 we deserve.
This looks so incredibly refreshing. Please, never abandone this project, its got such charm and character to it from what I see. And most of all, incredible atmosphere. Your mapping and lighting talents have given this mod something truly unique :) That, coupled with the influence from the alpha and betas will make this really special.
Really looking forward to more progress!
Am I hearing Black Mesa Source voice acting thats been crunched down to blend in with the other dialogue? The Zombies are gurgling like from BMS, think... I could be mistaken. Sounds awfully similar.
It's a nice touch though! A good shift in the usual sounds we hear so often.
I've been trying to get the original mod to work for ages. Only ever played it through to the end once, and never again. I don't know what was different that time for it to work. Same goes for Timeline 2 Iced Earth, that rarely works too.
I'll give this a try, it might avoid the problems I get.
The moment I saw you mention "Rockwell" I instantly thought of They Hunger, which is excellent. That game still gives me the creeps, really makes me feel alone and vulnerable. Considering it's a pretty aged mod now, that's quite impressive.
I look forward to seeing more progress, you've got great talent from what I can see that will really do justice to a project of this calibre! :)
Looks deliciously devious and terrifying. Can't wait! I'll be tackling it with a full bottle!
All the maps you've put into work look excellent, the new textures really capture what the old UFO game atmosphere. Can't wait!
My only gripe is this titlepic, the ingame sprites don't quite sit will into the skewed background, and they're all clearly just from regular doom, even if they are recoloured. If it wasn't for this mod page, I wouldn't be able to tell this was for a UFO mod.
Keep at it!
Wishing you guys best of luck on Ep3 progress!
Love the look of this hover vehicle. Think I remember seeing it in one of the early E3 videos. Excellent work :)
Too excited! Massive relief to see this is still kicking :)
Thanks guys! All these new models look incredible!
Thank you for this update! Wonderful to see this classic mod get some more love after so many years. Will deffinitely try this out. Thanks again!
Insert bodysnatcher scream ;)
Great work. Though I've always liked the simple design of the original character models. Their polygonal simplicity matches their blocky environments, the HD models look out of place.
Regardless, wonderful work on the re-texturing.
Thanks for the reply, Zik!
I'll continue to toy around with ways to get it running.
This is long overdue. The sequel is unfortunately still persistant in plot holes and narrative contradictions and occasional frustrating gameplay situations. But still an enjoyable mod for what it is, someone's passion project. Its also very rich in custom content and mapping designs (if memory recalls).
I could never get through the first Gate mod, for whatever reasons. But appreciate the effort all the same that went into its development.
I'll be sure to try this one out! Many thanks!
Im getting the same loading error when trying to start a new game of Timeline 2. Thing is, Timeline 2 has always done this to me, even the original. I've only ever played Timeline 2 maybe twice in so many years because I've never been able to suss out the issue. I copied the appropriate .dll file across, and the issue persists. All other mods I've played have run fine, just this one.
Don't suppose someone has had this before and might know a fix?
Nope. You're doing it right. He's just a tough bugger.
Black Widow Games (the developer) hasn't been functional in years.
Sorry buddy, wont be getting anything from them anymore. Sadly. This ended on such a cliffhanger.
The Door's bolted shut.

This is perhaps the best download I've seen here in a long time. Top quality.
Hangar one? Is that a recovered Alien Spacecraft I see?
That's mighty exciting ;)
Then you better make those bullets count.
Excellent work with texturing! It looks awesome.
Completely and utterly sexual in the best way possible.
My expectations are exceeded yet again! Lookin' brilliant guys :)
Right? I contacted him once about ways for him to gain more attention, but if I recall right, he just wasn't interested about getting himself more views or some such. Just wanted to upload walkthroughs.
