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.
Run these options in your console:
Sorry about that, I meant to put an option for it in the options screen but a Valve update broke the options screen a while ago.
