The only trouble I have, is trying to get the crossbow bolts to 'bounce'. How do you make them do it, they just end up either in the wall, or the floor.

Fun mod with beautiful design and well-tuned gameplay. Puzzles are mostly simple and few of them have more than 1-2 steps to them, but they still will probably take a few tries for you to complete. Those that are more complex made me appreciate the mod even more because I know how much scripting those required. Puzzles are followed by action arenas which are well made, neither too easy nor overwhelming, everything felt well balanced and playtested (no suprise, it was beta tested by a whole collective). Doesn't seem to follow any kind of story but instead just aims to creating fun challenge. Did I mention that level design is beautiful? Because it is quite well done, very well done if fact, and you wouldn't normally expect it from a puzzle mod; what I mean that it's not sterile and monotone like Portal, but quite the opposite. I was very pleased with observing quality level design. Good visuals, good balance, fun arenas and good pacing of action and puzzles - which is why I gave it 10/10. Go try it, it should be a fun ride.

I just want to add that after walking away from B.P. for a day I decided to go back and finish it. I did it without cheating.

For my tastes, too many puzzles and too many Hunters thrown at you at one time.

However, beautiful work!

After installing the patch -->item by item<-- into the Baryonic Predicament folder the game ran fine.

It appears to use mostly the stock "look" from Half Life 2, This is in NO WAY a knock on the designer. The levels are BEAUTIFUL! In that dark grungy HL2 way once you enter the interior levels.

BUT...

This is a personal preference thing I know. This mod has some puzzles that frankly irritated the crap out of me. I hate to go looking for walk-throughs to get through a game. That internal raised bridge/walkway with the rotating laser beams (I assume) that had to match up with the ceiling nodes with the red lights that had to turn green (I assume), I admit to you guys that I No Clipped through that. The most incompetent rookie Combine shooter could have come in there and finished me off while I was crouching/looking up trying to align said lasers/red to green nodes... Sheesh man! When I got to the room with rolling balls behind the glass (press here if balls are stuck) I said Frak this... I love me some Half Life 2 but I do have a Real Life 1 also.

I don't know how to make levels and I admire those of you who put the time and love into this.

Unfortunately this mod as well as countless others has been ruined by latest updates to steam. I tried the various fixes but the best I could do was to get it to play but with so many missing textures as to render it unplayable. I tried so many fixes that I can't even remember what I did to get that far and I can't get it to play anymore at all
Does anybody have a fix for this wonderful looking mod ?
