AHL: Directors Cut is a project started by the Ministry of Action. The ministry is a group of people who still enjoy AHL and think that it has a life ahead of it. In our opinion AHL is a wonderful formula for online play, but a few bad design decisions spoiled the brew.

Thus we have been busy making improvements to AHL v1, which was meant to be the final one. We have tried to improve overall accessability, weapon behaviour and content. At release we will put up a big changes list that shows all new features and changes.

We hope that this new version will get some people playing again. We also aim to maintain a flow of new players coming in and trying out AHL. Maybe people will even be inspired again to make new content. We are realistic and do not expect 200 players by tomorrow; but AHL still has plenty to offer!

A big shout out to all the old AHL'ers over the years that mad the community fun and slightly mad.

I'm looking for anyone willing to play. I can create a server and am open to pretty much any maps suggestions, not a strict admin (can say whatever you want). Just looking for people to play Vampire Slayer, Science and Industry or Action Half-life. Feel free to add me on steam my email id is Delib345@aol.com or it should be under "Dave."
