I'm a french player in his thirties. I've played hundred GoldSrc/Source maps and mods, since 2006. I was here when HL1 was announced at E3 1997 and when it was released in november 1998. I've also sub-translated Cry of Fear in french. I'm usually friendly in my reviews because mod's are free and need hard work from usually amateurs. However, I'm a diehard opponent towards mods put on sale, becoming retail games. Donation is a better system for this kind of things.

DarkShift @ Opposing Force 2

Opposing Force 2 LOST tried its best to make what was left of OpFor2, playable.

However, it’s just some levels randomly put together... it’s not bad, some levels have nice sequences, but NH Team’s choices are rather strange : awful cutscenes, « fade to black » transitions, and those new weapons, especially the bow... which is not only out of place, but also barely useful (horrible « ironsight »).

Overall, I think the original OpFor2 was an amazing project which could have been top 3 of the best mods ever done for HL2, and a true heir to OpFor1. But it was maybe too ambitious and too much for the original team, and now, even if a new team takes back the project, there is so much work left to do... and this work, would have to be as good as what the original team already done. Which seems pretty hard.

Well, the hype goes down quickly when you begin the mod with lame cutscenes and invisible walls everywhere :/

DarkShift @ The State of The Core - 2018

Shame.

Split up with your wife.
Leave your child in foster care.

Only T H E C O R E matters.

THE CORE is Life.

THE CORE is Love.

You don’t need... food... nor water... or condoms... when you got THE CORE.

...

Nah, good luck... Even as a mere mod player, I’ve so little time to play now that I have a job, responsabilities, a wife and 2 little girls, I can barely imagine what it is for you, a free mod developer.

What I understand is that it’s another adaptation of a part of Marc Laidlaw’s Book, « Gadget ».

DarkShift @ Hunt Down The Freeman

It deserves « Holy wars » when there are dozens of free mods far better than this.

The only point of interest is that is a 50 minute SFM made like a Steven Seagal movie. But you can find many SFM or live HL Movies for free.

And, speaking only about gameplay, this is bad, bland, badly designed, boring. Even in free modding this is the bottom of the basket.

When you’ve seen and played 20 years of HL1 and HL2 modding with fun, ideas, who didn’t give a damn about being retail,

HDTF sounds like a bad joke, a fraud, a hypocrisy.

Prospekt was meh but at least it has average gameplay, average but overall nice levels, and respect HL lore.

DarkShift @ My next project is...

Yeah, that's it, I wouldn't expect you would do a sequel to your wonderful mod, but I'm glad you do. You said you were a writer before being a dev' but your mod had some unique moments, "stealth" section or the final fights.

Also, as we're in the middle of that HDTF sh*tstorm/f*ckfest, your Patreon is really the best way, donation, like Cry of Fear did, I'll probably give you a few € for your work, it'll always be better than... that 2 mods/games gone retail...

Good luck for EZ2.

No it’s a new level, in the end, maybe after Ashes of Lautrec and before Altar of Sacrifice?

I think she’s a follower of an anime from my country, Miraculous LadyBug.

DarkShift @ Opposing Force 2: Lost

Well, at this point we're not so far-off death threats to that poor russian developer XD

I suggest to speed up the release date and get over with the release, if I judge her work with Der Schwarze Nebel in mind, OpFor2's NeverHolle version will probably be a clusterfuck of random map's tied up together and mixed up with the highly controversial FakeFactory stuff....

What a shitstorm here. Haven’t seen something like that since Black Mesa Source being postponed again and again.

Hey, you have a point here XD

Well, maybe people can reverse Fake Factory stuff to the old models, when her final version will be released.
