Well, no, it seems that I'm doing something wrong with the auto-update functionality.

What you should do is to download the 1.5.1 patch. Since you already have 1.5, you're better off with the 1.3 to 1.5.1 patch. See the Downloads section.

Try the 1.3 to 1.5.1 upgrade first, since it's a much smaller file. If that doesn't work alright, then use the full version one.

About updates, you don't have to make them on a weekly basis; if you feel there's too little to show, then skip one week, work on the mod and then make a media post.
The advantage to that is that it buys you time to work. This counts if you're the only guy working on it.

The project feels pretty good, to be honest. I enjoyed the demo for control schemes.

One thing to note regarding it: sometimes the AI escorting you can get you crowded in one corner. That makes it impossible to move afterwards.
Maybe have them keep some distance? That should help, I think.

Anyway, the project is promissing. If you can figure out a way to go from a level to another one and back, that would be great!

Keep up the good work.

Well, most AVs have a so called 'exception list' or 'allowed list'. Try having gslist listed there.
For the record, it's not the first time an AV lists clean files from AvP2 as viruses. McAfee and AVG are a bit notorious for listing sres.dll (a server resource file) as malware.

If that's so, then (take a deep breath :)) reinstall avp2, play through AvP2 then install AvP2TF.

play through AvP2 first.
Then fire up the mod. There are several files that the mod uses and that they have to be created by the game itself. So, play through AvP2 first.

Bingo :)
The purpose of the story is to have people question the usual way of handling zombies.

What I wanted initially is to have the two discover the secret of the "Don't dies"; that would make them murderers. Alex would then want to tell others the fact that the zombies are starting to recover, but gets killed by Derrick, to avoid the repercussion of their "cleaning operations" (now actually mass murders).
But hey, you only have 500 words :)

Herr_Alien Jul 17 2008, 5:50am replied:

Well, it is getting harder, even only because the fact that the scope of a mod becomes larger. As Tatsur0 pointed out, early mods are reskins or map packs, while later ones add new game types and new abilities.
And making a total conversion (basically a new game) is much harder now: think of the size of the team. If with older days one man could do the job, now you need a dozen.
The fact that modding grows however is best indicated by the fact that more and more mods tend to have industry-like quality (see Eternal Silence for example).

Herr_Alien Jul 16 2008, 2:08am says:

I also see it growing, if not in numbers then in complexity. For example, if the earlier AvP2 mods consisted in skin/map packs, the latest mods tend to add more (see AJL, UHM, X-Coop and Imp-Coop). So even because of this evolution alone, modding is still growing.
