Also, I enjoy making video reviews for mods for Half-Life and Half-Life 2, so let me know if you want me to review one and I'll fit it in when I can.

There was a system crash prior to the events of Half-Life so they are possibly related.

Wasn't a fan of the original games, FO1, FO2 and Tactics but I love the FPSRPG games by Bethesda and Obsidian

Just started playing Fallout 3 and Fallout NV again. You can follow my new Fallout 3 game here if you like:

No mods other than HD blood textures.

Hey JC, I know you like, died for our sins and all but... well, I've done some pretty rotten things and I was wondering if you wouldn't mind doing that again for me? Clean my slate as it were. Just once more. Next Sunday is good for me.

Terrifying. They offer a lot more variety in combat if done right. Zombies are slow / fast, have to get right up in your face and can be dispatched with bullets and melee weapons. SNOOORE

Dinosaurs vary in size, speed, armaments and armour plating. You couldn't take down a Tyrannosaurus with a knife now could you? If you did, you'd have to be really crafty about it. It would be epic.

Dinosaurs are good.

I agree.

People on MODDB seem to downvote the member, regardless of the comment. It's petty. Upvoted and thanks for the feedback.

Our visual effects expert Archie will have to get back to you. I've kicked him in our development chat app.

I'm sure he's told me where he got them but it's not often I actually listen to him.

Heh, wow. Thanks for all the feedback guys. This is still work in progress as the title suggests. There is still a lot to do. :D

- The green light is intentional, the brightness isn't. This area of black mesa is old and putrid. The texture and its lighting values will be changed.

- This also helps with highlighting areas for the player, with green being reds complimentary colour. The same way a lot of oranges and yellows are uses to guide the player in the darker blue lab areas shown previously.

That glass panel is a little odd. Is it a window or a mirror? Either way, why would there be furniture in front of it? :-P

This is a Goldsource mod, not Source. You will need Half-Life 1 on Steam to play it.

I think what he's getting at is that there are literally thousands of textures out there to use instead of the standard ones. It adds a lot to a mod when it has a little variation from every other half-life mod out there.

You're a good man. :P

Not quite sure I understand the concept of film grain in games. For me, film grain isn't something to be ADDED. I like a nice clear image.

Each to his own I guess.

Well, consider me told. :)

That all sounds more like multiplayer issues though. I don't think I've played HLDM seriously since around 2001? :P

Either way, don't expect The Core to work with anything other than Steam HL for the initial release since we will only be testing on the Steam platform during development.

Oh. Oh. I see how it is Crypt. Is The Core officially 'old' now? :P

You're right though. Echoes came out of nowhere and looks the tits. :P
