And about the story, what can be summarized between those mod's and the wikia of the mod's (in Korean...) :

Residual Point is a "remake"/"interquel" about the same time as the HL events, where the player ventures through Black Mesa and then Xen fighting aliens, Marines, but also the new alien race looking like zombie HECUs.

Residual Life seems to begin where RP left us, with that red teleport... In fact, it seems RP and RL are "iterations" of the same story/HL events, but re-told with another character each time. It seems the Gman places us on a "loop" where the events begin all again : a fact acknowledged by the intro and the outro where Gman utters "we'll meet again", "you're not supposed to be here, forget about all this".

The wikia tells us that the adventures of Kim, the protagonist (female), are around the same time as HL1 but in a different place. The Resonance Cascade occurs and Xen aliens comes up, and HECU cleans up the place blablabla...

The main story is that Gman with the help of Black Ops, harvest the power of a giant crystal (giant to the point of spanding across 3 different maps) in order, in his own words, "to be rich".
That crystal seems to be directly linked to the new alien race, which is hostile to everyone including Gman and his goons.
If the protagonist takes Route 2, she tries to stop the process of that harvesting, but is placed in spatio-temporal isolation for her attempts. Gman escapes with "military personnel" and is briefly seen with a Hunter from HL2.

If the protagonist takes Route 1 and "talisman", she encounters a Nihilanth-like being which seemingly acts as an alien God and is helped by Xen aliens, so it's safe to say this one is, in the same vein of the Kingpin in Sweet HL, another commander to the Xen forces. He utters some nonsense and gibberish about "void key", "make us whole", and other things.
In the end, Kim destroys it but is again placed in spatio-temporal isolation for "destroying talisman system" (whatever that means... It seems Route 2 took suddenly a whole different story which has no links at all with the Gman, Crystal, and new alien race).

In the end, both routes end with a "loop" backs to the intro where Gman - acting as a Barney - makes us "forget" about the story and then the credits...

And maybe yet another iteration of the story for the next Residual?

Erratum :

After watching recent playthroughs of the mod 1.5 on YT, it seems that we can still do the ending 2 with route 2 (and so still do the "boss battle"... which has been enhanced with some monologue from the boss!), IF you find some McGuffin... located on some place I would never have thought.

It has nothing to do with the secrets/easter eggs to find, tough, it's on the level just before the Combine-like installation.

So in the end, the options you have are :

-Main game to COUNTDOWN - route 1 - ending 1 (Center of All Things).

-Main game to COUNTDOWN - route 2 - ending 1 (Center of All Things) if you don't find the McGuffin.

-Main game to COUNTDOWN - route 2 - ending 2 (Altar of Sacrifice) if you find the McGuffin (during "Ashes of Lautrec").

And the same epilogue in the three cases.

During Ashes of Lautrec, there is that map, rl01p, where there is that small waterfall, you can crawl back and get to a hidden area where there is a small pool with a Tentacle. Here you can get the Hornet Gun.
And if you look high, you can see a small area where you can get the Tau Cannon and a small thing called Talisman. When you get it, go back and follow the usual path to the teleport where it screams "hey stop that" in various Voices. And that's it

-Route 2 like Route 1 has changed, too, more huge maps, and more fights.

"Ruins of Chronos" is now larger and bigger, and a new map was added, "Ashes of Lautrec" (???) with some Xen-like places and a Combine-like structure.

The main change is that there is no more final fight with a re-skinned Nihilanth as a Black Boo ghost, we go back to Route 1/Center of All Things with the same ending.

In the end, RL 1.5 changed the situation of RL 1.4 (not available anymore, shame) with Route 1/Ending 1 and Route 2/Ending 2,

to Route 1.5/Route 2.5 and same ending (upgraded) in both cases.

I don't know if it's the final version of the mod, but if it is, it was a good ride, and this mod is definitly in the top 10 of HL1 mods.

As far as I understand the korean author's ambition, it was to be as close as possible to the stories of one of Marc Laidlaw's book, The Third Force (I've never read it).

Not so much new things as I thought in RL 1.5 :

-the main new content is the Center of All Things which has evolved into a full map with hard battles against Black Ops and the new Alien race.
-the final part also removed the subplot with Gman and the nuclear bomb, instead we have to do... stuff... anyways, the ending is still the same as 1.4.

Now I've to made route 2 to see if substantial changes with the other ending.

Still a pleasure to do again the mod.

I'm surprised by all the bad votes here. I loved this mod. The mapping was even better than Valve mapping. I found it odd that there is a lot of stuff (mostly models) still left in there but never used (like the Ngrunt). I'm giving this an 8/10 because of the ending. It just cuts to black in the middle of a sewer. Wtf. Also the mod was pretty short.

Extra: I was given a special thanks :)
