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.

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.

Lol, if you can't take a joke, then you shouldn't play games. This mod is here to stay, and tbh, i couldn't care less if you play or not.

this game is very fun but does have minor bugs that need to be fixed like the reloading one, which makes it so when u reload ur clip halfway it then takes the rest of ur ammo but other then that its really cool

I loved the way the music fit perfectly with the footage, very well done, it sounded like the track was specifically built ontop of that footage, nice!
The footage wasn't too appealing to me though, however I understand it's not in it's final version, and I remember the old Action HL, it was like this to begin with, so I definately have high hopes :D

The whole bleeding thing is total garbage no one wants to sit around and heal them selves in a fast paced shooter like this.

Plus pressing Q to get up again after diving is kind of weird feeling it should be set up so that when you pressed a movement key or jump you stood back up.

An option to choose what random weapons it chooses for you would be nice. Kind of annoying getting stuck with sniper rifle and a grenade.

Great start for a mod, and since you warned ahead of the time I won't complain about bugs so keep up the great work you are on the right path

The bleeding is a part of AHL...
To get up from dives, you can use the jump key aswell, for now it's got to be pressed twice though, and it takes a little long to get up. Next releases will see a lot of changes in the dives.
And if you get stuck with a rifle and a nade, try throwing your knives ;)

Loved the mod. Very nice. Only thing I'd like to see added is a quick switch b/t primary and secondary weapons. And open areas are a little laggy, but it probably doesn't help I'm running on a near 10 year old PC.

I played the original Action half-Life Hours, years!
I heard from the Ministry of Action since AHL Directors Cut...
I ever wanted to play these in Source, but if my dream comes true, this will be in your hands.

What i like:
- Cool Gameplay!
- Nice Weapons!
- The Equimpementmenu at start has the same things like the original
- cool Beta Map

What i dont like:
- Same Models from Action Half-Life/ DC
- Player Models... Please make own one, the look like the originals, but cool new Textures!
- Only one Beta Map

It will be my favourite Mod if you will do that!
New Weapon Models musnt be, but new high resolution Textures arent hard to make right?
And i think the orange Color doesnt match with the original.

Its a great BETA, the Main Gameplay did, only some missing things, the Textures does not mathching with Source Textures and Graphics, but you can correct that.

Only some things from an Action Half-Life Gamer.

Good luck!

Thanks for the compliments. Obviously there will be new models/maps/textures in future releases. It's just that the team wanted to release and there was no real dedicated modeller present ;)

As for maps, there are some new maps in progress and also some remakes of old ahl1 maps (bananamans, bankdoom, etc.)
Check the forums over at for more information :)

So the mod's play time is slowing down... Any news on when an update to spur the life back into it should be coming? I really love this mod and would hate to see it become another unplayed, obscure title.

I love this mod; is there any way to stir up some more action in Action Half-Life 2?

In fact, most of the bad things that has given creation, over time, may simply disappear, after all is the earliest version of the mod (1.0), and multiplayer versions, as we know, are updated frequently (in fact, in the case of a little updating AHL2 podzaderzhalsya). Meanwhile, Action Half-Life 2 is not only nenapryagayuschaya and funny multiplayer modification, but also a great way for half an hour escape from everyday worries.
