Black Mesa: Uplink is the recreation of the Half-Life demo (HL: Uplink) released by Valve in early 1999. The demo featured content that was scrapped from the original storyline. Some might consider it canon with the story, others don't. What matters though, is that many people enjoyed this short episode and that's the reason why I created Uplink for Black Mesa, the long awaited Half-Life remake for the Source Engine.

To play Black Mesa: Uplink, you will need the Source SDK Base 2007 (free) and a copy of the Black Mesa (also free!).

2 comments by Hezus on Dec 23rd, 2012

An update for everyone who has participated in the 3FM Serious Request Charity Event. Between the 18th and 24th of December 3 DJ's from a national Dutch radio station are holding their 7 day famine while being locked up in a glass house, to raise money for the Red Cross. This year's goal is to fight unecessary death of babies in third world countries.

I've asked the followers of my MOD to donate some money for this cause and I'm glad a few of you decided to help out. Together we''ve raised 50 USD and I've donated 40 EUR today. Currently 4,3 million EUR (5,7 million USD) has been donated by people in the Netherlands and with 1 day left it''s likely to become even higher. Hopefully a lot of good work can be done with that money.

EDIT: Event has officially ended and a record of donations has been raised: 12,25 million EUR!

Thank you all for the support! I wish all donators, followers and voters a merry Christmas (if you celebrate it) and all the best for 2013!

I wonder if Uplink is key to the Half Life games, so everything Half Life 1,2 and the episodes are all just some kind of simulation. That's why it says at the end "require further data".

It's strange.
I've never had a crash in Uplink during beta-testing.

Can you post your spec?

The mod is very cool, but there are some problems with the accented character. For example in thr credits, with my name and at the start status texts :( - Is this will be fixes in the future version/s? (These problems showed up in the Hungarian translation)

Yes. French translation also suffers of this, but for some reason the updated file was not added in the release candidate. I suspect you're going to see a v1.1 fixing some of this stuff in a few days.

We're talking about the lines related to Uplink, not BM.

Yes but the french translation of Uplink (I also wonder why the french translation of Freredarme was not the one who has been kept, if we consider that his version is better than the actual one) has also the entire unoffical french translation of Black Mesa.

And as Uplink using the same files as Black Mesa, for subtitles et translation, it is the same thing here.

Dunno what to tell you dude, some stuff went wrong with the Release Candidate obviously. Nothing that can't be fixed though.
