I'm a long time mod player, from France. I've played hundred GoldSrc/Source map's and mod's. I've also done some french translations : Cry of Fear, Half-Life (Update mod), Underhell (abandoned. Too much work for one man... if someone else is interested, he's welcome to contact me). 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 paying mods. Donation is a better system for this kind of thing. I'll usually be harsh towards such mods if they're too much "vanilla".

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

It’s that strange beam at the end of Ashes of Lautrec, just before the black ghost.

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

A new heroin just appeared friday on the last épisode.

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.

I thought RL 1.5 was the final version O_o

Guess I’ll be back to play that once again.

The true heroes are the developers who managed to handle such an ambitious project, the original dev's or the ones here.

DarkShift @ Opposing Force 2: Lost

For people who wanted to see what it was "back in 2009", it's not even the 2011 demo, here is the Opposing Force 2009 leak. I warn you, it's just some random unfinished map's and some concepts, some of them were abandoned or scrapped : Mega.nz

Maybe I'll upload that on moddb as well, after all it's just some beta content of a mod considered dead...

If you go in [DEVELOPMENT] - documentation files, you will find the file "storyline.rtf"... Everything about the original version of the Op For 2's story, is here, from the beginning to the end, final boss included.

DarkShift @ Opposing Force 2: Lost

No, it was different. I found some information, it was called the "Titanspleen", it looked like a giant bug... but it was cut in the end because too complex to develop.

The leaked files from 2009 are still available : you can play some random unfinished map's... and there is a Word file with information about the Titanspleen.

DarkShift @ Opposing Force 2: Lost

Well, google trad is my friend but it seems you've taken your own way, as it says basically "do it yourself or leave it, I do what I want and I owe anything to anyone", and, indeed, you are right, because you're the only one who had the guts to take over this project and make it finally available.

But, indeed, people are worried, I mean, I'm not really "that" shocked about FakeFactory, after all I've played through Leon/SPY who took great "liberty" with HL lore, but that would be a bit sad if your modifications deal also with deleting enemies and/or weapons originally present in the mod.

In the same way as we'll never see Half Life 3 or Episode 3 "as originally planned" (even if fans are currently doing a project called Project Borealis), I think we won't see Opposing Force 2 "as it was supposed to be in the beginning".

At last it'll be free, always better than Prospekt, but I've been following the project for years, somehow I found the original files that were "leaked" (yes, a mod was "leaked") years ago back to 2009, and I know, what was planned from the original team, about how Opposing Force 2 was supposed to be, I know there was some sort of original "final boss" (that was originally only named, written, and drawed), so I'll have an eye on all of that, so I'll know how much you have distanced yourself from the original version.

But, in the end, I don't know, maybe that'll be good, maybe that'll be bad... The only thing I'm sure is that you'll probably be the one and only way to play "complete" Opposing Force 2.

The torrent file had some issues so here's the full file of the Red 1.35 demo. As usual all credits goes to NH-team so they're free to do whatever they want with the file, but I think some people would want to feel what was OpFor2 before whatever you are going to do with it in the next version.

DarkShift @ Half-Life: Delta

Here's my review of the public demo :

it's good, really, it's an interesting mix between very classic/vanilla HL1 with random guy stuck during Black Mesa catastrophe, but it has also many custom stuff, prop's, etc...

What's interesting is that this Delta/purple version of Black Mesa feels very alive, you encounter some survivors here and there who can help you, talk to you...

I'm interested, to see the rest, I was right to believe in that project.

DarkShift @ Half-Life: Delta [Public DEMO]

So far it's good. It's HL Delta, you can also call that HL Purple Edition. Russian voices but you've also put subtitles so that's cool. You really tried to create a nice story, environment, mapping is clever... it's always fun to play yet another poor guy stuck in Black Mesa during resonance cascade...

I just hope Vortex Gun works, the weapon was broken as **** in the old 2011 demo, for example you shoot a Combine Gunship and it caused infinite respawn of the entity.

DarkShift @ The Core

My last comment was "DarkShift Dec 3 2016
Xmas release would be GREAT, IMHO...

Voted for upcoming MOTY"

At this point, I've pretty much given up and didn't vote for MOTY because no updates besides the update point "sound of silence" in january 2017.

Good luck anyways if it ever gets finished.

I've created an OpFor2 Red demo torrent file. I'll wait to see how the final version (in february) will turn out and if it's too much different from what was Red demo, I'll upload the file for those who want it.

Agreed. Your review seems quite fair, you sum up well the problem :

We don’t need another Prospekt.

Well, guess I won’t delete Red 1.35 demo until I see the newest features because that seems to have taken a bad path.
