Make sure the safety is off.

Owning half-life 2 is not required to play.
Press the red "DOWNLOAD NOW" button above. :)
You can add bots by going into the console and typing bot_quota X where X is the number of bots that you want.
Steam is required to play. It's been greenlit so soon you will be able to download it through Steam.
You do not need to own HL2 to play Double Action.
This will sound weird, but try downloading the Linux installer (it has the Windows installer bundled in it) and doing a manual install from there. More instructions on manual install of HL2 mods here: Moddb.com

There is no Mac client yet, unfortunately. Sorry, we're working on it!

No mac version yet, sorry. We're working on it.
I would suggest redownloading the installer. If that doesn't work, you can download the Linux/Server version and manually install it by copying the dab folder into Steam/Steamapps/sourcemods :)
Try putting da_ssao 0 and da_pretty_pixels 0 in the console.
To run Double Action, Steam is required (specifically SDK 2013 Multiplayer). Steam is free, and awesome. Get an account here: Store.steampowered.com
Even though Double Action uses Half-Life 2 assets, you don't need Half-Life 2 to play.
Valve freely allows the use of their IP in Source Engine mods. See this page for more information:
We are looking to include more player models as modellers and animators come forward to contribute.
This is now a known bug. Work-around solution discussed here:
What's the error message?
Have you tried verifying cache integrity for SDK 2013 Multiplayer? In your Steam library, right click on SDK 2013 Multiplayer. Under Properties > Local files, run "verify cache integrity."
Several people have reported this and we appear to have found a (temporary) solution. See: Forums.doubleactiongame.com

Sounds like the install went wrong. Make sure you download the windows self installer and not the zip.
in the console. :)
The MP5 error happens when you're on a server that hasn't been updated. We're working on getting the servers updated now.
Mostly just visual improvements and bug fixes.
Thanks, we'll take care of that. da_ssao 0 in the console will turn the ssao off if you don't like it.
Another user reports a problem installing on Windows 8 using Internet Explorer (see comment below). Does downloading with Google Chrome fix the problem?
I'm not certain the two are related, but it couldn't hurt to try.
Thanks for the detailed feedback and the work-around. It sounds like the problem is security software freaking out over the download of an .exe from the internet.
Let's see if downloading with Chrome works for joshrouss.
Can you send me a screenshot? That will probably help me see what's going wrong.
This is the Windows install file: once downloaded, you can doubleclick to install. Then restart Steam. You can run the game from your Steam library.
And I take it verifying game files didn't do you any good?
Do you get it for any game you start or can you create local games?
Well my Linux box is on another continent right now unfortunately so I can't look into it. It may not even be available, I think Valve does most of their VR development on Windows. Sorry. Hopefully this will fix itself if we wait for a patch from them.
You have to have the Rift plugged in, then the option should be available in the Video menu. You may also have to enable the "upcoming" Source SDK 2013 beta. It's a bit complicated because Valve is still writing all of the integration code for it, and honestly I haven't tried it yet on Linux, only on Windows.
The resolution is pretty low, but also I've made the hud elements a bit smaller for next release.
Yes. It's a bunch of people who used to work on TS, doing a kind of remake.
Melee with the weapons is next on my to-do list. Kicking and punching are already in, but alas there are no animations so I didn't show them off.
Sorry I didn't notice this sooner. Send an email to email@example.com and I'll get you fixed up. Also try the new version, it has a lot of problems like that fixed.
I wrote it from scratch. I used some support libraries but I wrote the core engine and rendering code myself.
I'm going to try out the airstrike and the ramming also and see if we can get those working. They're still great ideas. Guess I should have mentioned that in the post. This event was just to see what would come first. :)
Okay you've convinced me to do something about this. It's not a virus it's just the intro to the game. I swear it's completely benign. Sorry to startle you, I'll take it out of the next version.
Well isn't that high praise. Thanks man.
Good to know thanks.
It's actually because of all the attacking I did, each attack creates a little crater. It's actually kind of a problem, I had to reduce the effect a little bit so that you don't get gigantic holes in a base every time it gets attacked. :P
That's a good idea, thanks. Maybe just needs more ventilation.
I can't stand how ModDB always archives my posts.
Haha no, I'm working on a different theme, but it's the same style.
Haha... I made the mistake of calling it an RTS when I first was developing the concept. It has the same signature of an RTS, except it's turn-based, perhaps it'd be a TBS! With a healthy dash 4X and artillery games mixed in.
Yup, the explosions need more work... just like everything else in the game, they're a work in progress! :D
Well then, I certainly have enough to talk about on the subject of leaving things to the imagination, I'll just have to write another article about it. :)
Heh, there's SilentSound defending his map :P
It really is a beautiful map. We only need some medieval models for it!!
