Action Half Life 2 is designed to simulate the experience of being in an Action movie. Movies like Hard Boiled, Face Off, and Die Hard are the inspiration for AHL. AHL2 is AHL reborn on Source engine.

Yes.. it's release day... after several months of work we've finally reached our first release!

Posted by Hawky1984 on May 31st, 2009

The release is here!! Yes.. it's release day... after several months of work we've finally reached our first release! AHL2 In Your Face! Its been a lot of work and much effort has gone in from all involved... so well done guys! We made it!

Since it's a first release, beta, etcetera etcetera, yada yada, you know this talk: It's by no means done, polished or complete. It's rough around the edges and in various other places, but so far we've been having a massive blast playing it, and we hope you will too.

Download. Close the steam service, install, restart, and it should work by magic.

Did you watch the whole thing? The rick roll was itself a rick roll.

In any case, I almost stopped the video as soon as I saw the rick roll thing, definately not a wise decision to make for advertising a mod!

This was a joke for all the old AHL'ers really. The fact that they would never believe it. Advertising wasn't a major concern at that time.

I'm wondering the same thing. Starting a video with a rickroll is a good way to say "lulz, this was all a big joke!"

It's an action mod, just like it's predecessor: Action Halflife, and before that, Action Quake2.

Not really. The only member of the team that left to be part of the CS team was Gooseman.
After that, the A-Team made AHL, which was about as succesfull as CS, before Valve broke the code with a patch. It took a year to rebuild the mod, and by then CS had a massive playerbase.

Never has, and never will be. TS is just a ripoff :/
there was AQ2, then AHL, then AUT99 (which was not released), then AUT2k4, and now there's AHL2. Ts does not fit in the picture of 'Action' mods :P

nice release guys!
Played a few matches and I like it, almost feels like AHL:DC
I hope this is the beginning of a number of incremental releases, because then I'm sure you'll make this as perfect as AHL was.

No it was due to be released on an unsuspecting AHL community on the 1st April. They would never believe it was being done, so we played on that....

The game seems pretty fun, but I keep getting a bug where I can't ever leave the spectator mode. I played on a couple of different servers, and it seems to happen randomly. I choose my weapons and hit "ok" but it keeps me in spectator..

You're playing in a Last Man Standing server where respawning only happens at the start of each round. Look for DM server in the browser instead.

This is a damn solid start! :-) My biggest complaint right now is the lack of feedback: it's tricky to tell if you're hitting someone with guns, and the first-person kung fu animations don't appear have any bearing at all on what you're actually doing!

That might be, cos some of the models are just ported AHL1 models. Next release will have loads of new content.

Since a few servers use HL2DM's maps, I decided to copy HL2DM's maps, models, and textures to AHL2's directory. However, when I did that, I noticed that I could now use HL2DM's player models. So I used a Combine model, but, when connecting to a server, I become Jersey. How come?

well you rickrolled me, therefore you lose my download.
this is not some internet chatroom full of trolls this is serious stuff and while its ok to rickroll in certain places, this isn't an exception, take it off or become a joke mod.
