There's nothing quite like the rush of running, falling, jumping and crawling your way toward the release switch whilst under fire from rockets, railguns and lasers... then jabbing that switch and releasing all your team mates! Then finally watching as they all come running out of the open doors and beat the other team to death with Laser Cleavers! There's never a dull moment in JB, you're either fighting to stay alive, fighting to release your team mates, or fighting to escape from jail!

One year and six months since the release of Jailbreak: Source 0.4, and we're finally done. Yes, 0.6 is really finished. F**k me with a toothbrush and call me Harlie, we actually did it. We're currently making 100% sure that nothing whatsoever is broken, so pardon me if I don't announce the release date just yet. So without further adieu, I present to you the Official Trailer for Jailbreak: Source 0.6. Oh, and when we said "watch out for ducks"... we really meant it.

Looking good guys.
Though not quite an 100% total conversion, i did notice a couple of source sounds and textures. But that doesn't matter.

My experience is that it's a bad idea to ever say something is either 100% or 0% :P

As for sounds, depending on I don't think it matters that much, for example some sounds like bullets hitting certain objects, is there any reason to change that? Sounds like getting hurt and other stuff may matter, but bullets hitting metal are still bullets hitting metal!

All you will need to play Jailbreak is the Source SDK Base - Orange Box.

Hahah, brilliant mod guys! It feels like it was just yesterday that I played it and it was Combines Vs Rebels. You have made major progress, congrats! The only thing I find a shame is the fact that, the arms are still the default hl2 ones. With all of the fancy custom content, I was hoping for some custom hands too. But that is not important and can be fixed later.

Yeah we know, but we had to draw a line somewhere with 0.6 or we would never release. Custom hand models will arrive in the future, but in the meantime i hope the custom textures on the hand models will do.

Well, from now on, if you don't want this mod to die like 0.4, after 0.6 release, bring out updates often.

Yeah we know we spent too long on this release, but i think you'll find it was worth the wait.

We are planning shorter iterations in future though :)

Don't forget; we *would* have released 0.5 about a year ago had it not been for that damn crash bug >_>. We had to rebuild the entire thing from scratch for 0.6 (code-wise).

Since 1976 baby! Hehe! In all honesty, since we began developing back in 2007... I didnt want to use it until Jailbreak was good enough for the song :D

I've played Jailbreak since the very first prototypes, which actually might have been another mod. I remember playing stock HL2 maps like prison where the rebels were near invisible and had to escape. In any case, the mod has definitely grown and I'll be there at the release. While it definitely feels like you guys were feature-creeping yourselves into a hole it seems like it was worth it in the end.

That's the thing though, there was no feature creep. We built 0.5 and was all set to release last February/March, but ultimately it was too bugged to be worth releasing. So we binned it, and started again almost from scratch.

Any additional features that have been built specifically for v.6, were decided upon inside the design document long before even 0.5 was "completed".

Anyway despite all that, we feel that it's been worth the wait putting in the extra effort to release a stable, balanced version that ALL can enjoy.

Looking forward to a few rounds of Jailbreak! with all of you!
