Well, apparently there was another patch yesterday prior to me trying any mods so that may be why I've had no issues. The fact that Half-Life won't even run for you tells me that either you've modified the base game somehow (rendering effects or something?) or you need to reinstall.

I dunno. I'm no expert.

I'm not trying to prove anything and I never said The Core wasn't just HL1. The Core is an extension of the existing Half-Life story featuring new environments, new enemies and some other features but it is essentially just HL1 on a slightly improved engine. We've never disagreed with that.

This looks like cs1.6 with some updated models and some downgraded copies of the original cs maps.

There's no point laying into me alone as there are plenty of other comments on this page comparing this to cs1.6 and seemingly Valve agree. :P

I'm not sure. By the way the cars are arranged I would say that this took place during the 7 hours war or shortly after, where people were trying to escape the city. The military may have been there to try to prevent a panic. The Combine APCs wouldn't have been manufactured yet.

As cool as this is, I think the player should be forced to move a little more. Perhaps the forward pillars could crumble under such intense fire and eventually force the player to fall back further each time the chopper gun winds up.

I cannot fathom how Red Mesa managed to inspire a sequel, but here it is. Sitting neatly alongside the original in their own special layer of mod hell, Red Mesa 2 manages to increase the difficulty curve while becoming one of the most annoying experiences of my life.

First off, the sound effects. Right from the off the 2 enemies filling the first few levels, zombies and headcrabs, have had their sounds replaced by some pretty annoying vocals, and while I didn't understand what they were saying it was rather pleasant to shut them up... or not as it seems. On Hard mode there simply is not enough ammunition to take them all on and you have to run by most threads, their hideous garbling never out of earshot. Urgh.

The maps are no better than before, with horrendous architecture, no real design work put into them at all. You go from what I believe to be city streets, to caves, to a gman factory, all of them just huge open hallways with bad lighting. Well, at least it HAS lighting this time.

I think I finished it. 2 killboxes full of grunts and grenadiers with 35HP remaining throughout, before getting kicked to the menu. Also, a lack of autosaves meant I had to play through from the start after dying. That was unforgivable.

I had no trouble with this running on Steam. I blasted through it Hard mode which actually seemed fairly easy in some sections. I don't know if you coded the enemies to be less accurate but they certainly had trouble hitting me.

There are just a few things that bother me about this mod that kept me from enjoying it fully. While the old school find key to open door, rinse and repeat method was fun to return to, it managed to be less intuitive in this mod. Maybe with some custom voice acting or some kind of colour coding would have made things more obvious. Also, the models included aren't great and the left handed weapons genuinely broke my concentration at first. Mapping isn't great and a lot of it blends into one long dull corridor after another.

Could have been better, but could have been much much worse. 5/10 for you. :D

Always good to see another mapper using the GoldSource engine. One thing I will say though is that taking on a mod so early on may be a little over ambitious. You're maps don't really present any sense of place or logic with regards to the design. Try to look on Google for modern style offices or facilities for inspiration, and it never hurts to join a community to learn tips and tricks and improve your skills.

"First map is sort of a tutorial, hence the reason for not extremely amazing mapping"

Take a look at the Hazard Course in Half-Life or Boot Camp in opposing force. The mapping in those chapters was as good as the rest of the game.

Let me tell you the problems here:
1. The doors are at varying heights in the walls. Why?
2. No frames around the doors.
3. No light source and using a point light entity. Texture based lighting always looks better.
4. Bland, bland and more bland. There is no detail here what so ever. Walls, ceiling and floor make a room sure, but so far, this room has no purpose and makes no sense. Every room should have a reason for existing and if this is a test chamber of sorts then there needs to be a means of monitoring test subjects. Think about the chambers in Portal or again, the Hazard Course in Half-Life.

It looks as though you haven't had much experience with Hammer or mapping in general and if that is the case you should NOT be trying to create a mod straight away. Learn the tools and techniques and then try and tackle a big project.
