Half-Life 2 Classic is a Half-Life 1 mod that aims to recreate the entirety of Half-Life 2.

Why? Mainly, just for fun, but also because a lot of people like how the goldsrc engine feels, or enjoy the gameplay or Half-Life more than Half-Life 2. It's also a way to see what Half-Life 2 could have looked like in the limits of Goldsrc, if valve never developed the Source engine.

Updates on the mod.

News 2 comments

First of all, thanks to everyone for the support and feedback. It's all really useful and we're all amazed about how much this has blown up. We even made it briefly to #1 on ModDB, which we never imagined would happen.

Anyway, we discussed in our first blog post that we were trying to decide if we should stick to hl1 or hl2 style graphics. We still can't decide, so we've made a poll so we can gauge what most people want, and we'll try to adhere to the most popular option. You can take the poll here. Please be honest, as we'll be basing most of the mod on this info.

Also since releasing the demo, we've gotten a lot more people on the team, and we now consist of almost 10 people. We can't express how thankful we are, and remember if you want to join now you still can.

its not bad but it needs to improve monsters and model animation.Weapons are good.It works on nonsteam half life.Textures are very similar.I noticed when i was in train i came close to them and took damage,they dont talk and they are not getting out of the train.Gman in intro doesnt talk with his mouth.For this mod will take a very long time to improve and finish.Good luck developer.

Why not use a similar menu to the 2003 beta?

That's what we were thinking of, and kind of tried to accomplish with the background we used for the demo. For the full version we'll think about creating a new background that fits with the 2003 beta aesthetic.

You should make it look more like it was originally made for goldsrc with all its limits, not just port the hl2 models.
