Yo! Today we've got some information on our own special little place in Purgatory.

As you guys know, a little under a month ago we released Black Mesa: Hazard Course for the mod version of Black Mesa, and have since been working towards an improved version for the Steam Workshop. Our reason for delaying was because converting to Steam would take some additional time and testing to make sure everything was functioning and to allow us to fix the stuff that wasn't. We didn't want to delay the main first release on account of it.

Since then we've been working on our upgrades! Some assets have been upgraded, we've written more dialogue and have been tweaking our environments to get a few extra pretty-points as well as iron out some bugs. Buuuuuuut we've encountered some issues. We've been working to fix every issue that we can on our end, that's no biggie. But here's the kicker: There are some critical issues with the Steam version of Black Mesa that make some parts and features in our Course completely broken beyond our control. Some of them we can workaround, but the solution wouldn't be ideal. Some are things we could in theory cut completely in favor of not having the issue, but the rest are things that just don't work at all. For the sake of total transparency, we've gathered a list of things that we cannot fix which you can see below.

• Some logic_playerproxy entity functions aren't called. Basically, this keeps us from making note of player's status and adjusting the game accordingly, which is done in small ways (reactions to
player death) and larger ways (ensuring players cannot get stuck in specific points of a map)
• Choreography
• Custom bms\resource files (captions, hud hints, menu modification) aren't read without manual file overwrite
• Custom bms\script files (soundscripts, soundscapes, credits, character presets) aren't read
• Custom particles aren't read

In addition to this, the Workshop system itself is having some trouble at the moment.

So, what does this mean?
In short, it means we can't release a proper Steam Workshop version until Crowbar Collective fixes the issues with BM. Again, if and when these issues get fixed is totally out of our control. This is frustrating to us because we dislike having the course locked off to an entire portion of the fanbase. We could in theory release a version that's very broken and hackish in a lot of ways with various feature cuts, but we'd really rather not do that for hopefully obvious reasons.

So there you have it. If Crowbar Collective does fix the troubled parts of their game, then yes, we will immediately begin working on getting a Steam Workshop version of Hazard Course up. If they don't, we'll decide on a plan of action. We may just backport upgraded assets and major bugfixes back to the version for mod Black Mesa, and waiting patiently, hoping for a fix. Until then, it's sort of in limbo. Remember the ending of the episode Jurassic Bark of Futurama? That comes to mind.

We'll keep you guys updated.

Apologies if this was answered before, but are you getting any support from the Black Mesa team? Say, with voice acting or official endorsement? Are you going to be included in the Steam release by any chance?

Any chance you'll bring back the red railings and ladders? :D
It's really subtle but it has such a HL vibe

We have red railings in a few places. For instance, the railings in the jumping and basic movement rooms come to mind (as you should be able to see in our media releases of the jump room). I'm not sure if it's a great idea in other places though. While bright red worked in Half-Life, it might not work so well if we splatter it all over Black Mesa (in terms of artistic direction).

If you like, I can try and see if I can worm a few more red railings into the Course here and there, in places where we feel like it wouldn't disrupt the art style of the rooms.

Glad to see this is still going. I remember checking it out in early 2013, you guys made so much progress since then. Just one question, will it be compatible with Steam version of Black Mesa? If not, will you convert it, once it comes out?

Chances are it won't be "right out of the box," but we do plan to release a patch, if not an entirely new version that takes advantage of the new Steam-only assets.

I'm excited for this,if Xen releases at the same time that'd be 2 lucky coincidences.

"Black Mesa: Hazard Course is an add-on for the Source Engine mod Black Mesa, featuring a completely new perspective on Half-Life's Hazard Course. The Black Mesa Hazard Course will feature:"
So it is just the hazard course remake.

I Just finished it. Fuckin' Amazing! I didn't expect taking the train into the training facility while hearing the Black Mesa Theme that's been sitting in the soundtrack since day one yet never got used, it's nice listening to it when you're outside looking around at everything and just going "wow! :)" The reference to the PS2 release at the start was the best, even better then in the original, it was so cool hearing the scientist hilariously going over Gordon's file - I almost had a serious case…
