This project has gone non-public. I'm really tired of the braindead comments about optional HD
models.
Shall all the whiners create something better. CM has become a just-for-fun project again.



Imagine, a Hollywood producer got his hands on the game. The result would be similar to what the Cinematic Mod is: a graphics blockbuster, redesigned to the typical game to movie adaption with an orchestral soundtrack and beautiful people everywhere.

A graphical / music total conversion of the Half-Life 2 storyline. You need Half-Life 2 + EP1 + EP2 and a 64Bit windows system to play this modification. (Mac OSX supported soon)

PURPOSE (Version 10.42)

- Unified Engine; play the game (HL2 / EP1 / EP2) with the latest Orangebox engine / Advanced HDR / new shadow effects
- Enhance the old HL2 maps with HDR, blooming, color-correction, new props, dynamic shadows
- Eliminate the visible world-skybox transitions in the maps. Cinematic Mod maps are looking much bigger than they are.
- Eliminate all blurry / Lowres textures with new Highres textures and/or Hires-Detail-Overlays
- Give the HL2 trilogy a more stressed, darker and uncomfortable look
- Enhance the soundtrack with a semi-dynamic new hollywood-style music
- Add optional HD characters (mostly based on the ultra-detailed Poser Pro mechs)
- Add ironsight
- Add dynamic shadow simulation with the help of env_projected_textures
- Add more replay-value and a fresh new style
- ALL features are optional and selectable with an comfortable configuration-tool.

Gun and some spite effects from TheVMan's Ultra Effects Pack

CM 2013 Final 1.24 is the last update of Cinematic Mod.

It is the more realistic work dedicated to Half-Life 2 modding, more than a HD rework, it is a complete reboot, with sounds, levels, graphics, models enhenced and improved.

Here is the changelog :
- Fixed map errors in ep1_c17_02b
- Fixed dropship path error in ep1_c17_05
- Added internal Softbloom shader (ff_ppe_bloom)
- Reworked preset #1 and #2 in configurator tool
- Reworked rimlight and phong masking on some models
- Reworked the "Too many indices for index buffer" crash when hd models are enabled
(YOU MUST RE-APPLY THE HD HUMANS with the Character Pimper tool)
- Fixed german npc combat chatter
- Fixed d2_coast_04 map link to d2_coast_05 (night version)

To download, follow this link : Getsio.net

Known bugs:
- After changing the ingame-language: Steam is asking you to restart hl2. Doing so will restart to the original unmodded hl2.
Therefore you should exit and start CM2013 manually.
- Poor performance on outdoor maps with HBAO enabled: HBAO is a fps killer and needs a really fast gpu.
- Sunrays are flickering: The sunrays shader is not fully compatible with multicore rendering. Either disable multicore
rendering in the advanced video options or disable the sunrays with the configurator.
- High VRAM mode gives me trouble (crashes or fps drops): The high vram mode is experimental. Disable it.
- My FOV is weird: CM2013 has enhanced FOV range (50-90 - Original hl2 has 75-90). Please check the fov setting in the video config panel.
- "Procedure entry point Direct3DCreate9Ex could not be located in DLL - nvspcap.dll" error with SweetFX enabled. Some nvidia drivers broke SweetFX.
Only workaround is to deinstall Geforce Experience or disable SweetFX. This bug may be corrected with an updated nvidia driver.

Hello there! Is it possible to change the Cinematic Mod settings from within the game itself? Because it's a bit of an annoyance having to leave the game each time to change a setting

I should probably wait until I have the ability to play the game before commenting too much, but from what I am seeing and hearing, the mod is great, some people just don't like the art direction. As long as the graphics are good (For HL2.) and not a lot of errors, I really do not see the problem. There should probably be an option to turn off the “adult” content, but then again Bible thumpers probably can find something better to do then play this game or whine about it. After all real life is not vanilla and HL2 universe is suppose to be different and much bleaker then our own at present. I would give this 10 out of 10 just for pushing the boundaries and being different, not to mention the enormous amount of content and upgrades to the game and for what... free!? Great job to the author!

Don't let yourself fool by the ratings, this mod is of excellent quality. I guess most people are kind of bothered by the new look and feel of the game, but that's just how it goes. This mod is a Half-Life reimagination, not just an enhancement. And the new controversial models you see in the trailer/pictures are optional and disabled by default.

Other than that: Yes, there are sexual graffitis in the game. And the creator put a sex toy in Alyx' room. You can like it or not, but giving up the whole experience because of something this minor seems excessive to me.

The mod itself is of such a high quality that it almost feels like playing a remake of Half-Life 2. The new high quality textures, impressive skybox objects, awesome particle effects, gorgeous lighting, dynamic new background music, new weapons (not just skins but new handling and all), new difficulty level, the maps being full of new details and props, etc. etc. All of this stuff has continued to impress me through my entire playthrough.

Also a lot of areas have been enlarged or extended with small segments. And everything is lovely detailed. In one of the coast levels for instance I've found a huge crashed passenger aircraft in the distance. The level design is still the same, but often it feels like an entirely different place.

The staging is holywood-styled and the mod a masterpiece imo. The download is massive and comes with many requirements, like installing Source SDK etc. But it's not hard to do, there is a fairly fast torrent to download the whole thing and the installer does everything on its own.

It's for the base game as well as EP 1 and 2. Entirely free. I can only say =

Rating: most deserved 10/10 possible

How do you define what's useful and what's hateful?

Good question. Well for me, a good critic is supposed to point out what the person think is bad and tell the developper HOW he could improve it while staying unbiased. And a "hate" comment, for me is smth like this:"Stop being a dirty old man!" and give it a 1.... + For me you can't just put a 1.

Is "remove unnecessary sexualization of Alyx and NSFW graffiti that despite the fact they stand out a lot are super repetitive, and try to stick closer to original game's tone in environments" constructive enough?

Well for me it sure is a good start at least, even tho reading your review I see you didn't say it in those "nice" terms. Calling a work that took I don't know how many days to create an "Abomination" is just disrespectful from my point of view.

Mod stands for Modification, either it is a Single Player Story modification a Multiplayer Modification or an improvement what so ever to the original game that fills more than one category (level design, texture, sound and models). Other wise it would be call a texture pack, map pack, model pack ect... But to actually re-imagine, re-make and re-mix elements to give a new fresh look and feel to an already existing game is no easy task. The models in CINEMATIC MOD are simply the best models in terms…
