Base Defense forums have been here for a long time. Now I added some new boards, so if you have a bug report, any suggestions, questions about gameplay or you just want to discuss your game experience then it's the right place! I'm planning to extend it, since there's no Base Defense Information Pages site, it will be a new board on the forum, there I will post threads with information about monsters, weapons, items, etc.

I don't host any servers and I do recommend to use licensed products.

Enough Money for a pc but not for HL1 that cost 5€ on G2A for a Steam key? Just buy it instead of making such request or do a nonsteam server byurself^^

Great mod, really made the traditional Half-life mechanics feel modern in-tune with the Horde-style systems we see in most shooters and stays fun throughout. Alot of balance problems though, most noticeably the AI-pathfinding which is so horrendous at finding players hiding in spots that its game-breaking at times. However with 4 players running around the map proper, its a blast.
