You play as one of the human rebels - Frank Harrison, who's currently in his hideout outside City 17.

He's woken up by the Citadel explosion, caused by Dr. Freeman and Alyx Vance at the end of Half-Life 2. The evacuation of the City 17 is in progress and he has to leave his house to fight his way back to City 17 to join a evacuation train while there's still some time.

Gather your supplies and an old HEV suit and explore the territories of the City 17. Play your role in the events, that took place during the original Half-Life 2: Episodes 1 and 2.

It is recommended to play through Half-Life 2 series before playing this mod.

Only recently I've found out that DangerousWorld is Synergy positive and now you can enjoy the co-op support so anyone who would like to play this mod with his/her buddies, you are all set. I'm really happy that my mod has been granted this support even though I didn't know about it until this moment. I haven't tried it out yet so let me know how it performs.

As far as DangerousWorld 2 is concerned, I desperately lack free time as I'm going through the very last semester before my Bachelor's thesis and I'm overloaded with work. I sincerely hope I will find more time for it sooner than later.

I also want to remind you that the download of the full version of DW version 2.0 is missing a map. dw_ep1_04 has to be uploaded anew as it keeps freezing during installation, I need to give it a one more go. So if anyone wants to play, please, download also this missing map. I apologize for the inconvenience.

After many hours trying, I've finally got this mod to play without any purple missing textures, and without missing objects that have been replaced by a big, red, 3D 'ERROR' standing all over the maps.

This is what I did. I hope it helps some of you.

I downloaded and installed v1.13 of Dangerous World.

I then downloaded and installed the v1.13 to v2.0 patch

I then downloaded and installed 'SteamUpdate fix launch mod'.

I then downloaded and installed the patch that DaftMink links to below in his post. Thanks DaftMink.

Make sure you have Half-Life 2: Episode 2 installed and started at least once. Make sure Steam is re-started after everything is installed if it is running in the background.

Good luck. I'm not promising anything, it may not work for you and I'm sorry if it doesn't. It worked for me though and now I can finally play the mod, so I thought it only fair to post what I did in case it helps anyone else.

It's a shame the author doesn't have time to do this himself.

(PS I do get an error saying something like the node graph is out of date as it loads, but I can still play fine and it's not a problem.)

Thanks for the heads up! Mod developer certainly didn't bother to make that final touch that would make his game playable. When I installed version 2.0 iso file, it was producing those big red error messages and missing purple textures. I assumed it was the latest version so I didn't bother to use that little fix. Thanks to you I changed my mind and decided to apply it and voila. I think it updated the mod to use more recent source sdk because it has more video options than before and multicpu option is selectable. Funny thing is I was able to use HEV charger on the wall before but now I can't use it. I deleted slovakian and russian files from the mod and after I did that, node graph errors have disappeared too. I don't know why. I have one last error remaining though. Somehow I can't see my hp. This is annoying especially when I'm in the middle of an intense fight because I can't tell if I'm gonna die or not.

Sorry forgot to log in, so that's my comment above.
The only tiny thing was each level load the node graph out of date thing would appear, but went after a second and I could carry on playing without problems.
No missing maps, no textures missing, no big, red 'error's all over the maps.
Try it, it's a brilliant mod.

There's a patch for the missing textures posted here:

I suggesting installing Version 1.13 of the mod with this patch, the latest version 2.0 has a few problems the older one does not.

The best mod I have ever played involving Half-Life 2's storyline. I highly recommend it.
