Run. Think. Shoot. Live. Source. Black Mesa is the Half-Life 2 total conversion of the original Half-Life game. Utilizing the Source engine and its endless array of possibilities and powers, Black Mesa will throw you into the world that started the Half-Life continuum and introduced Gordon Freeman to the world as a gun-toting, bullet-dodging Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics.

HDR is optional and dependent on your system. It will have the same specifications as Lost Coast.

guys dont worry about da specs,first,episode 1 has HDR and has da same requirements as HL2.However lost coast needs 1gb of ram and 3ghz processor,i had a 512mb of ram,radeon 9600 xt 128 mb (wich is workin perfect by the way),and 2.66 ghz.lost coast was running pretty well,but da performance wasnt wat anybody liked,it wasn't as good,so i converted my pc to 1gb of ram and didnt change da speed of da pc,and my god,all my games(including lost coast)were like super amazing,so my advice,buy if u want ram starting from 1gb and have a 2.5+ghz processor or even 3.0ghz+,and a dx9 g.card,with 128mb+,and dont worry about any performance.

Sweet Jesus, That is very impressive. Remind me to get a completely new computer to play this mod when its finished.
I already know what im putting in it.

I may build a PC with the specs of Gabe Newell's Rig (If I can afford the bastard) - Just to play this.
