The release version of Black Mesa: Uplink (version 1.0) - Installer EXE version.

To play Black Mesa: Uplink, you will need to have an installed version of Black Mesa on your Steam account. You can download Black Mesa here.

Note that the installer version overwrites Black Mesa files. It will however not directly affect your experience of Black Mesa. Original Black Mesa files can be restored by use of the Restore batch tool included in this package. If you don't want to overwrite any files, I suggest you download the ZIP version instead.

It's a simple batch file. If it doesn't work, it probably means your virus scanner or firewall is blocking it, or you're not running it as administrator.

As a fix: You can manually copy everything from the /backup folder to the /bms folder and overwite. That's basicly what the batch file does.

I've downloaded the mod into the BMS files, but I don't see Black Mesa Uplink anywhere in my Steam folder. I've also tried playing Black Mesa to see if it's there, to no avail. Can someone help please?

The installer should grab your Sourcemod folder automaticly. If if doesn't find it manually: ..\Steam\steamapps\sourcemods

Install it there. Then load up Black Mesa in Steam. Select New Game and the first chapter should be Uplink.

I can no longer get the default Black Mesa, nor Curse mods to launch from Steam.

H-L 2, H-L 2 Episode 1, H-L 2 Episode 2, H-L 2 Lost Coast, and Portal, all launch properly from Steam, but two of my favorite mods no longer will. The only thing that I did was install Uplink via the installer version.

Can someone help me rectify this problem? Obviously, the Uplink installation fouled up my ability to launch from Steam my other H-L 2 mods.

How would I go about uninstalling Uplink, if it was necessary in order to access the other mods? I can't find an uninstall tool anywhere.

I found the solution on my own.

For some reason, my version of SDK 2007 was removed. Once I had Steam reinstall that tool, Black Mesa was finally able to launch via the Steam GUI. Whew!

Uplink looks good, although the jumping is much more challenging than it used to be. I have to use barrels and other objects to be able to achieve jump-heights that I used to be able to achieve with a lot more ease than before. Perhaps it was intentional to force the player to use these objects? If so, I'd seriously reconsider having the utilization of objects to achieve certain heights toned down, by a lot. For an occasional puzzle, having the player use an item to gain greater height is fine, but it seems far too frequent here.

You have to duck-jump now for normal jumping. I had the same issue a while ago until I discovered that.

I also read a bunch of new BM players had trouble understanding the duckjump. I've been playing HL since it came out in 1998, so to me and a lot of others duckjumping is the most natural thing to do.

You shouldn't need any objects to make any jumps. None of the jumps are harder than the last one in the original Hazard Course.

I think for the first time in history there is actually a real generation gap in the world of gaming. Very interesting.

Really, I duckjump on every game, even if it's not HL, because i got used to it.

Hm, am i the only one who's had this problem; At the beginning of the mod when you walk up to the scientist and the Barney, supposedly they'd start a conversation. Which they don't, according to the console, this file scenes/uplink/ba_talk.vcd is missing. Which it isn't, i am surprised to not have seen anyone else report this problem. Any help?

You've probably not installed it right. Download the zip and verify that all the files go into their correct folders and it should work.
