Ryan wrote:After careful analysis of the technology, the decision has been reached to offer a Source version of Nightwatch in addition to the current release plans. There are, at this time, no plans to abandon development for Half-Life 1, though. We're all very excited about the Source engine and would like those who have purchased Half-Life 2 to be able to enjoy Nightwatch in a higher-quality, more feature-rich environment.

Ryan wrote:As a result of the recent decision to produce a concurrent Source version of Nightwatch in addition to the original plans, staff positions have opened up in two specific fields to accomodate the extra work required: programming and level design. If you believe you are qualified in either of these areas and would like to contribute, or would like to try out for one of the existing open positions for model texturing (skinning), player/NPC animation, or voice acting, head on over to the Jobs page for more information.

they didn't work on the HL version because they're stupid ***** who bought into the idea that source would be a better engine, completely ignoring the fact that it looked unique in HL1 yet in source looked like every other HL2 mod ever, as well as the fact that it is much harder to mod for HL2 than it is for HL1 (there is easily 10 times as much code in HL2), AS WELL AS the fact that an engine switch means a massive restructuring, which they had already done before which only slowed thim down to a crawl. finally they just gave up.

i'm seriously disappointed, because this mod had promise and they screwed it all up. "HAY GUYS NOBUDY PLAYS HL1 NEMORE LETS PROT IT TO SORSE THATLL MAKE IT BETTER!!!!!!!!"

I'm wondering why they ended it, I wanted to play this mod so bad, They pushed the HL engine to the Max, and yet they scrapped that for the HL2 version which they started too soon, This was going to make HL more than it was but we will never see it.

Why didn't they work on the HL version?

Its really to bad that this mod had to die because of the reasons it did, although i suppose that lots of mods die because of internal garbage. But if the developers ever read this, the content that was made, although painstakingly slowly made, is still there, and if a new team were to form + the few people from the original team that cared and were dedicated to the completion and ingenuity in this project, new life could be introduced to this mod....
