A half-life mod with a very strange idea - an arena where you need your BOTH hands to aim. There are no crosshairs. And unlike COD or other FPS games, when you press the right mouse button, no one will aim for you. You must operate the gun by yourself, or no one can predict where you are aiming at.

Current features (main) :

  • Manual aiming - Force players use both hands to aim.
  • Custom weapons - Allow map makers specify weapons in their map. Including damage, clip size, rate of fire, and weapon models.

Current features (minor) :

  • C_ weapon models - V_ W_ P_ models are combined into a C_ model.
  • Additional render choices for models - Because the original render modes are always affected by ambient light...
  • Player models - New model with five fingers. More importantly it supports Hand Arena's aiming style.
  • Simple level of detail

Planning to do:

  • Map custom winning conditions - Allow map makers design the map's own game mode.
  • Melee weapons - I wonder how will the melee weapons work in this mod.
  • Sniper weapons - This may be the hardest thing to handle in this mod.

Again. i got it wrong. if you shoot while standing. it won't crash. BUT WHILE MOVING it crashs because of no animation for shooting while runnin'

Awesome, waiting for a pistol and shotgun version, this is gonna be great for those Razer Hydras who want to test Half-Life with those devices.

Keep up the awesome work.
