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.

Hello, everyone... I would like to announce that the Steam version of this mod will be having some problems... let me just explain them.

Old bobbing - Do you remember the bobbing where your weapon went corner-to-corner when you walked? And when the screen tilted when you strafed. I modified the client.dll file to add the old bobbing, but it won't work for some reason. It gives the following error:

] map c1a0<br />Host_Error: Couldn't get DLL API from x!

A kind of broken UI - The UI of the Steam version mimics the WON version. For some reason, there are a lot of buttons that are blank. Just nothing there, but it still makes the noise. I don't think there is a way to fix this.

BONUS: Problem with the WON version - The menu background for the Steam version is the same as the WON one, except the WON one is very broken. The original HALF-LIFE logo still hovers over it. For any of you experts out there, is there any way to fix it? Thanks.

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

DevTest 0.1 has been released! When we get to 0.5, or 0.6, we plan to go over to alpha, and then on version 1.0, we will go to beta and then release fully!

Thanks for all your great feedback!!
