You are right. Last time I checked it was not possible. Changed it to HL2 Ep2.
ModDB does not allow changing the game on the mod profile.
Right now you need to own "HL2 Episode 2" on your Steam account and have Alien Swarm installed.
Look in the downloads, there's a patch version too for this release.
I will look into providing a patch for the next release.
You can still play the Antlion Faction in Sandbox mode. Balancing the Antlion faction in Annihilation mode would be too much work at this point.
Correct. It should try to install Alien Swarm automatically anyway when you try to launch the mod.
I guess we might add someone later to push them. For now they are just magically thrown in a direction :)
Alien Swarm is free. Currently it does require Ep 2, but that wouldn't change if we switched to SDK 2013.
Even though that engine branch is a newer release, it does not support all (engine) features the Alien Swarm engine supports.
This is not something on our side. The 7z archive should be used for installing.
I just contacted Desura support again to either remove the mod from Desura or fix their bugged client (since they clearly don't care about supporting mods).
Maybe you can provide some screenshots and/or console log?
See the changelog in "read more". It's mainly bug fixes, updated maps and two new maps.
There were some problems with the 3d portraits and they need to be redone :(
Being able to select antlions sounds like a bug.
How did you solve it (for future reference)?
Can you start Alien Swarm? Does it give a runtime error before reaching the mod loading screen?
Also, can you provide some more information like your system specs, operating system and maybe other installed software like a virus scanner?
Correct. We use assets from Ep2, so we require the use to own Ep2.
You can launch the old mode with "-disabledeferred" in the launch parameters. For the next release it will also automatically switch back when the settings are on low.
If we have a Russian translator, then maybe.
Difficulty settings are planned for the release after 2.3.0. Currently the CPU just spends all money on buildings barracks and massing up balls of soldiers, due which it can be quite strong if you don't make use of manned turrets.
We would need to move over to Source SDK 2013, but that involve some issues (uses an older map format and lacks certain features supported by Alien Swarm among others).
Can you post the log of hl2wars/debug.log somewhere? It contains the log from Chromium Embedded.
Which version of WinRar? I've seen some cases where some extractors don't work properly with 7z files.
It could also be a problem with Chromium Embedded and Vista of course, but I would need to test that out.
Everything seems to load fine, except for the main menu :(
Maybe you can provide some information like your OS and what program you used to extract the files?
Sounds like a bug (or a problem with extracting the files...). Maybe you can launch the mod with "-console -dev" and post the content of the console somewhere?
Not fixed yet, but will do for the next version.
In what way? Do they play too boring? Or too difficult? We plan to add a difficulty setting in a later update.
The mod uses Alien Swarm as mod base and is not affected by the steam pipe update.
The mod won't tell you to update Desura, so if something tells you to update Desura it would be Desura.
No, bots/cpu players are available for Annihilation and Overrun.
