Oh you think so? I tried this both on my old Vista system and my current Windows 7 system. Worked. Both times. Come on, the good man even included pictures. This game ONLY WORKS with the steam version of Half-Life. It's 5 bucks for Christ's sakes, get it already if you haven't and stop pirating this fantastic blessing of a game.
Is it really that hard to:
1. Go to your half-life folder, this is by default C:\Steam\Steamapps\<your username>\*half-life. (You should run Half-Life at least once to ensure the files are in their right places.)
2. There, find hl.exe. Right click it > Properties. [See http://img510.imageshack.us/i/vistafix1ke6.jpg/ ]
3. Inside the properties window, you should see a Compatibility tab if your OS isn't high on e-crack or if you aren't brain dead. [See http://img510.imageshack.us/i/vistafix2ty0.jpg/ ]
4. Check the box to run in compatibility mode and select 'Windows 98/ME frm the drop-down box.
5. Apply and OK to close.
6. Run the game, you should notice the resolution change if you have previously ran the game in a higher resolution not supported by a W98 app. If this is not the case, just give it up and go play MW2, Halo or whatever it is you kids do these days.
Somebody should scale the hands to better match the size of the weapons (the .357 for example, is puny). And certain parts of the mod (climbing the lift shaft for example) can be a pain if not done properly. Besides all these minor flaws, this game still rocks my world.
I got a question, if this game were to be like The Sims, how will you build stuff and how would you save your "sim" ? Anyway, good mod. Hope it won't be dead like all the other mods :)
Great mod! If you have free time, you SHOULD download this.
Great work with HL Episode 2 alpha guys! Keep on rockin', we're loving it!
This mod is really good! A must download for Half-Life/Horror fans! Great quality models and skins!
I can already feel the epic pwn coming from this mod.
God, MenteR PLEASE. Give it a second thought. Synergy got it's idea from Sven Co-op. Though Synergy is a fairly popular and large mod, Sven Co-op still manages to keep us all hooked though it has "no updates" for years now. Sven Co-op is the best. THE BEST. I have nothing against Synergy mind you.
Best mod ever. Nuff' said. No argument.
Much better. Age fixed.
Oh ****. I AM NOT 38 FFS!
*cough* Where's the promised demo?
Fun mod! Lots of spots to camp, lots of violence boosts the shooting experience!
Ah yes, this is probably the cause. When I have more than half of my inventory filled, it crashes on transitions. I've tried copying my savedata.dat file away, I couldn't load after that. I'm not trying again to risk my progress :P. It appears that after I crash, I shouldn't try loading (it takes to me the menu map with my items). If I go straight to new-game, I start in the AB Inn room with all my stuff intact.
I'm guessing that carrying more than half full of your inventory causes the game to crash during a map change, therefore killing your save. Try avoiding this at all costs.
HolmstN's method was tested and verified by a friend of mine. The mod runs fine under Source SDK Base. No Episode 1 related bugs found so far.
Wonderful mod, I couldn't imagine all these being possible in Source. Congratulations. HOWEVER, there are quite a few minor bugs, which I ignore and forget about them. But there are problems which I find... disturbing.
#1. Only one save slot (perhaps allow custom saves?), this is pretty hard. Especially when you keep losing your saves on transition crashes. I replayed this game over 5 times, due to save losses. I'm not sure what causes this but in the Wilderness, possibly caused by completing the stable master quest (I tried many ways to determine the cause), upon attempt to return back to Riverside, the game crashes... with your save too.
#2. I tried to work around this by copying/backup my savedata.dat file. Turned on my game, pressed F7. Press press press. Nothing. I made so much progress *sniff*. I'll understand if you aren't able to develop a patch, but this is absurd.
Might we be seeing a Non-Episode 1 version someday? These poor lads have waited so long just to be let down. :(
"...is that sufficient to play?" Why don't you try, maybe you might be a lucky person! :)
"...2GB big man thats alotta space" Maybe we should get a new hard drive soon? :P
Do you have Half-Life Episode 1 (and perhaps this need also Source SDK Base)? If you don't have Episode 1, I'm not sure if it would show up.
THIS MOD REQUIRES EPISODE ONE.
According to the ReadMe.txt file, this mod requires Half-Life 2 EPISODE ONE. If it hasn't already been, this should be stated somewhere noticeable. People who don't own Episode 1 would really be mad to find out they downloaded a 703 MB file, while not being able to play.
Extract the contents of the .zip somewhere, then run the installer in the extracted folder. Then, point the installer to your correct Source Mods directory. It should work then. :)
Forgot to mention, I'm on Vista. Running the game under Windows 98 compatibility. Monitor resolution is 1440 x 900, which Windows 98 compatibility doesn't support.
I have a quickie. I got 1.9 GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB Ram and a Radeon HD 3650. Is it me or does RE:CB hate ATI? I turn on bloom effect and when I try attacking while crouching, my screen zooms and goes all blur. My FPS drops dead to 1. Goes back to normal when I turn it off. Turn it back on and BOOM. Sad.
So... the game maker version is a spin-off of the game, in MS Paint 2D graphics?..
These guys aren't dead nor frozen. Check the site for updates. A new demo should be coming our way soon.
Can't wait for the release of this masterpiece! A few things I hope to see added some day:
1. Realistic gore. Lots of it. It's more fun to shoot if lots of blood spray out.
2. Easier to kill zombies! They look rather hardy in the video.
3. Iron sights if you may.
DANG. Download at 94% and Moddb file link is gone? WHAT THE...
May 1st here in Malaysia, still waiting for the epic release!
I'm addicted to medieval themed games and mods! Now don't let this effort die! :)
Hey, what is this? I downloaded, no servers. Hosted one of my own, everything worked fine BUT. map "lobby" has no spawns. map "pool" worked fine. The game has some issues with me, all my keys do not work (though binded correctly), all I can do is select a team and change weapons. Can't even move or jump.
Thanks for the update. My opinion, the center-piece with the title text and menu options on it might look better if it weren't blurry.
Thanks for keeping the project alive, even with Terminus. I'm glad you guys kept it together :)
Here to say I'm still following this mod. Best of luck to the team! :)
Hi, Billy Spas! Great avatar.
They're so skinny. :P
Sorry for quadroposting. Okay, 1.3 works fine. The gameplay has a lot of potential, this could be a good mod someday. One thing though, you should make this mod more STEAM friendly, edit it so it appears like other mods, not a fully change to the original Half-Life. Have Fire Guns appear in STEAM too. You should fix the weapon buying, the buttons are broken (example, I press # for Dragunov, but I get RPG) and the description after buying displays it wrongly. (You have purchased crowbar, etc. other Half-Life weapons.) I can't stress enough about the bots. Though they shoot fine, you need to make waypoints so they walk, buy weapons and act more human-like. You should also add an option to change from left to right handed. I'll drop a full list of problems I found on your profile. Overall, got mod if you tweak the flaws. I can explain my comment in more simple English if you find this hard to understand.
Sorry for being so rushy, I was a bit frustrated. I'll give version 1.3 a shot, and see if the usual problems still prevail.
How to get this game to work? I install to my Half-Life folder, it doesn't appear in STEAM. I try to run the game from the folder, it runs but asks me for some stupid CD KEY.
can you please make an individual download for the maps?
