Half-Life 2: Short Stories is a team working on a group of modifications that take place in the same realm. A lot of the focus is on the story and gameplay, new innovative set pieces and puzzles. After the release of the first episode of Human Error, the team is planning to release more episodes and expand the characters and the world.

The death of the Nihilanth threw the Xenian army into disarray, and the subsequent portal storms stranded many on Earth in the wake of Combine occupation. After once more having to endure existence beneath the totalitarian boot of their cosmic nemesis, they have searched for a way out. Now, buried in the heart of a dilapidated university, they've found it.

In Human Error, relish the opportunity to join Civil Protection and stop the Xenians from ever finding peace! Step into the jack boots of Anders, and follow his story through a moral quagmire of thinly disguised genocide and raging psychotics. Vortigaunts, Alien Grunts and Controllers stand in your way from dashing the hopes of an entire civilisation, but worry not: you have at your disposal all the perks of the Combine empire. Step into the APC, equip your manhack and stand side-by-side with equally disgruntled traitors to the human race, Eloise, Noah and Larson.


With the .zip file, simply unzip it and copy it to your SourceMods folder (which is something like C:\Steam\steamapps\SourceMods\ depending on your Steam installation). Make sure the mod's foldername will be "Human_Error". If you want to help us host the files, let us know. If you have questions, comment, etc. remember our Moddb forums.

Great single player Game, good voice work. I didn't really like the driving part or that the sniper rifle and stun baton took your suit energy. In all though a must play mod.

Awesomes mod. Some areas are a little counter intuitive as far as knowing what to do next. In example, I'm stuck at Weapon lab where Noah tells you not to break anything. Hooked up the weapon power cord, charged the generator... now what??? Can't seem to exit back out either. The manhacks are cool but they get a little tedious when you have to use them to advance through the level. It just kills the otherwise excellent pacing of the game. Excellent work though. I will follow this series with great relish.

That bit with the weapons lab, all you need to do is then break the glass around the Headcrab Shell and then activate it. Then it will allow you to get through.

After hours of play into this creature you understand that without fresh ideas - without manually controlled manhekov, pokatushek in an armored car and ksenyan-enemies, Human Error in general did not pose any interest for the players and it is unlikely we would even talk about it now. Therefore, Human Error, not a masterpiece-level Research and Development, is still worthy of your attention, because so many innovations in single-coil modes of time since the modification Curse.

This trio gameplay innovations literally dragged Human Error from depths of oblivion, because everything else in it is made explicit in the intermediate level: location affects not only the poor study of the environment and the terrible lighting (which is why in the surrounding screenshots so hard to make out anything), but the monotony (half Human Error will be the dull gray walls in the university!), the story makes itself felt only at the beginning and end of fashion, new weapons (sniper rifle, harvesters and sub-machine gun, known as the Bole Alyx Gun) found only a couple of times and confused from them no, the music average, and does not fit into the atmosphere, an updated interface, and restrictions on the number of portable protagonist of weapons (pistols, rifles, several grenades and a pack of tame manhekov) rather annoying, and the models of our brothers in arms are like anyone else, but but not on normal people (facial expression of one of the companions Enders scares stronger than the whole army ksenyan combined). Is that озвучка characters, but the model of enemies pleased with its quality.

Anybody, how do I install it, if I don't use steam (cause I hate it).
I have all 3 disks plus the Orange box (licensed, of course).

I really liked it! I hope for the next one you show off a bit more of the brutality that the metrocops showed to the citizens, to really show off the lack of moral compass. Could be interesting...

Awesome mod! I loved the story and the characters! The best was Logarson haha he was just great!
Only thing that "haunts" me in this mod is the face of the girl in a dress. Every time she appeared I was waiting for her to turn into somekind of monster lol.

Dispite the requirement of having EP2 to play I'm using just the Source SDK 2007 and 2009 builds and it works fine. There is a problem though as many textures and models won't load so I guess you used some assets from EP2.

Human Error is a really fun game. I really dislike seeing D.O.G. pop up, though. >.< Is there a way to kill him?
If anyone wants to play together add me on Steam.
