The Citizen's problems are caused by using very outdated builds of the engine and its tools. Very few people still bother with them, so problems that appear go unnoticed.

When things went wrong earlier this year they had to move from the 2004 build of Source to 2006, and now for closed captions they will have to start using 2007 (yes, I have tested).

This is a fantastic little set-piece marred only by a freaky lack of lip synching. I understand that you might have made the mod on Vista or 7, but surely there's an XP machine somewhere?

Valve used displacements in Lost Coast, so you're on familiar ground. Jawdropping work as ever!

Totally. If you just glanced at the thumbnail you might not even notice the hut!

There's an importer already out at - I'll keep working on mine, though. That one has some limitations.

I'm working on one myself at the moment. Got static meshes working, and once I fix a bug with textures I'll make a release.

God know if I'll ever figure out how to do the matrix transforms needed to import skeletons correctly. :/

Yes, I know. Just thought it might be better if a "Steam is in offline mode" message came up instead.

Quick Play doesn't check if the player is in offline mode. The result is that you are kicked from the server you end up on after ~20 seconds because Steam can't auth you.

Brilliant animation. Could you not have kept the crate and building models separate, though? As I understand it, right now you're animating the model inside the box before it can actually be seen. :S

I love how different the leak soundtrack (which having found this page I'm listening to now) is to what was eventually released, and especially the use of piano. It's another window to the alternate HL2 that you can see images from in Raising the Bar.

Click on "read more". It's not a zip because the 7z archive was 60MB smaller.

Is there really a need to do the checks like that? An array representing the tiles would surely do the same job far more elegantly.

Unless that's a clever pun on "achieves", I think you meant to call it Archives.

Glad this was uploaded to ModDB. I really don't want to visit the Phallus Palace... :-o
