I tried to type in the time limit field but it's greyed out and won't let me change the '20' value in it =O
Any idea why that would be?
Also, what are the 'Respawn tickets' and 'Corpse stay' fields actually for?
Ahh ok, so Rogue Train is supposed to take place before 1187 then, makes sense, I know who it is ;-p
I'm wondering about near the end when someone comes on the radio other than the contact... who is that supposed to be? What was he saying, all I caught was him needing help. I couldn't understand anything else he was saying har!
Oh and IMO the ending should have been more succinct other than having us wander around a closed compartment wondering whether that was actually the end.
OOP disregard this post regarding water, was meant for the 1187 EP1 not RT :-P
Turns out I wasn't running a steam ID that had episode 2 installed with it. I logged over to another id that does and worked fine. I also had to force it to use directx 9 for the game to work properly.. for some reason it defaulted to 7 <shrug>. SO I had to add '-dxlevel 9' to the launch options in steam FYI in case anyone else has these problems ;-)
Found the problem. For some reason the default video was set to Directx 7 instead of 9 and there was no way to change it in the video options. SOOO I forced it to 9 by adding "-dxlevel 9" to the launch options for the addon in steam. Them it changed it in the video options as well and saved it. Probably the reason I was crashing so much .. I'll see heading back to the mod :-D
Well this kinda sucks, I was enjoying the mod (even though I randomly crash a lot and have to restart the game <sigh>), BUT now I'm stuck because when I go underwater I can't see anything. If I'm above water the view is clear but as soon as I submerge it's too murky to make anything out. I played with the video settings but nothing seems to help. Any suggestions? I'm stuck at the canal where you go down the chute, once I'm in it I can't see where to go >.<
OK I found the problem, I was trying to play with a steam id that didn't have Episode 2 installed. I logged in with one that does and it loaded fine.
I couldn't get the game to load after the initial cut-over scene. I get the loading message but then after a bit it just crashes with a "hl2.exe has stopped working" error. Tried fullscreen or windowed but crashes for both :-/
Yeah I'm getting a similar problem as another person:
Seems I've played the mod before and it played fine but now I can get into the game and play it, but get giant text blocks saying "Error" all over the place.
My issue is with my mouselook. I use the mouse to look around and tried lowering the sensitivity to lowest (1), but it still seems to whip around too fast. Checking/unchecking the 'mouse filter' checkbox to smooth mouse movement doesn't seem to make a difference. Odd since the mouse is fine in other mods.
Love the feel of the mod though. Reminds me of more creepy mystery type games ;-)
I enjoyed the first mod just found two things annoying. Too many locked doors ;-p
Other thing was the flashlight didn't last long. This is of course part of half life 2's defaults. I got around that by setting the following command variable in the game:
That way the flashlight stayed on, didn't lose power. I was hoping to find a way to just make the flashlight stay on longer but couldn't find a command for that.
I also hoped there would be a walkthrough or hints. Some mods have them others don't. Helps if you get stuck.
Also looking forward to EP.2!
I just finished the game and got all 15 easter eggs BUT I don't seem to see the 'surprise'. After the Gman talks to me on the train I fade out to a black screen then can not see anything but darkness and a light in the distance that looks like a train .. if I move the mouse upwards I see sky but when I move it back down I see darkness again. I take it that's a bug of some sort? I can't seem to walk, can just move the camera around but see arkness or sky, nothing else. What am I supposed to see :-/
