What is HL: VO?

Half-Life: Version One is a mod for the Steam version of Half-Life that brings back all the old features from the earliest CD version to release to the public (which is 1.0.0.5).

Will there be future versions?

Yes, there is planned to be future versions of this mod. We plan to change the menu back to the WON one, but we feel it is impossible. The engine source code would have to be changed, affecting other games that run on GoldSrc (like original HL1 Steam). This could be the reason why the game Portal runs in a different directory to Half-Life 2 (HL1: Source, HL2EP1 and HL2EP2 run in HL2's directory). Because the engine was modified.

What new features are in 2.0?

OVERHAUL - HLC now uses Xash3D Engine. This will give you a better, more authentic experience.

ADDITION - HLC now uses the WON menu!! (as it runs on Xash3D Engine)


Why was it delayed?

Because of piracy issues. I have an idea, but it may not work. Because the mod folder contains the FULL valve folder, (I copied the valve folder and edited the DLLs) the full game will be in action, hence you won't have to pay.

To prevent piracy, I have come up with a new idea.

Trying to prevent the piracy issue

I've added a password to the ZIP file, so for the password, you'll need to go to your Steam Half-Life files, and go to valve > overviews > boot_camp.txt, and find the 1st line. That will be the password.


Half-Life Classic - Version 2.0 will plan to release within today (Wednesday, 6th December) and Sunday (10th December)

I like the way this mod looks. It takes what I really enjoyed about the WON version and puts it into steam. It makes the steam version look and feel alot better than what it originally was. Best of luck to you and your mods future.

Look, I think that there are simply too many HL1 Beta mods. Rainfall, Absolute Zero, Shaft - I don't think there's room for one more. AFAIK, this mod is just a so-called 're-creation' of the 0.52 Alpha, which we are able to play right out of the box. You are bringing nothing new to the table. Shaft came first with the Xash stuff, and many others came before you with porting/using 0.52 into the retail build. Please respond with what you ARE bringing to the table, and if you're not really bringing anything new - just don't.

EDIT: Another paragraph.

EDIT: I ****** up. I was misinformed about this mod and I dived head-first thinking this was a generic HL1 Beta mod. I'm sorry about this, and I hope the development goes well with this mod.

He has every right to publish his own efforts to the HL1 alpha under his own flag. I see it as fundamentally wrong to deny anyone's mod from entering MODDB because 'there are too many like this'. There is no limit for how many Half Life 1 alpha mods there are, please do not imply such.

The mod does not mimic Alpha 0.52 and mimics the earliest CD retail with the old bobbing and such.
NOTE: The earliest retail version I could find is 1.0.0.5
