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.

And one thing that I don't understand. He lives outside of the city, right? Why would he want to get into the city to leave the city? Well, I guess to hang out with the other rebels but I thought it was a little bit wierd.

I see alot of people judging the moid before it has evern started. Its not easy to get a mod to run on every single computer that exists.

Anyways, the mod fits seamlessly into the HL2 Story lines, especially Episode 1 wich was my favourite. I could walk around City 17 for hours.
But as with other mods that do this, I don't feel like a rebel. I can take lots of hits before I die and I can have armor.

Now there are some mods here on Moddb that does what I want, Mainly City 17: Episode 1 and Triage. I do know that coding is not easy so I won't judge the map by what I want. I'd say 9/10. Not Perfect but its really darn good.

I agree. The game doesn't run for me either. it just stays at a bigger resolution screen. Attempting to restore every 30 seconds or so. making my screen flash uncontrollably. In other words, it doesn't work for me seeing I have the same problem as cahal. Was looking forward to it too.

Complete junk, won't even start. Installed it plus patches and when you run it, it shows an intro movie for several seconds, then does some loading, then minimizes, tries to restore, desktop resolution gets changed to something like 640x480, game stays minimized but cannot be alt-tabbed to or maximized in any way. CTRL-ALT-DEL is the only option.

You just need to copy the missing map dw_ep1_03a.bsp from the 1.13to2.0 update to your maps folder. It's a big bug, the 2.0 full installer has this map missing.

x_gamer is right. I had the same problem with ver 2.0, but after installing the patch, loaded my save game before the door and the zombine appeared. Just follow the instructions on the page where the patch is.
