37 comments by Junk on Apr 1st, 2011

We are pleased and relieved to announce that Missing Information 1.6 is now available to the general public. The highlight of this release is of course the heavily overhauled Hyperborea chapter. We listened to your criticisms and what you will find in this mod is a rebalanced campaign with altered gameplay and a much better sampling of health and items, as well as numerous bug fixes. Yes, the crash bug in the last map is a thing of the past, and so is Odell's surreal descent down the stairs. Although admittedly the first year of this release's development was spent doing virtually nothing, we gained a few more team members and went into overdrive in the last year and three months with the determination to deliver something that felt as close to a polished Valve chapter as possible. We spent time coming up with a plausible story behind the Hyperborea, one that we feel is probably as close to Valve's original intentions as anyone is going to get, and we have done our best to ensure the gameplay and scripted sequences keep in line with this story. Many areas have received a visual overhaul as well and a sampling of new models and textures have been created to give the mod more of a distinct feel.

Hyperborea Borealis Submarine

We hope you enjoy the updated Hyperborea. We feel confident in saying that it is the most polished example of fixed content from the Half Life 2 leak, but that is up to you guys to decide. We really cannot thank you fans enough for being patient in spite of our inability to keep true to our previous release dates. Download links can be found here.

After manually extracting the Episode 2 textures and manually mounting them in gameinfo.txt, I still have 2 missing textures on the E3_terminal map. Is there any fix for this?

Check the console for texture names, and I'll supply you with them.

I wasn't getting any errors in the console for missing textures, and I couldn't work out what was missing when listing the loaded textures.
I have got a screenshot though with the 2 missing textures in. Steamcommunity.com

Finally I get around to commenting!
This mod is great. You rarely find HL2 beta mods that have been complete to this standard, and even rarer to find one that is actually released. (It's sad most people just copy your binaries for their 'mods'...)
I have, though, been working on a Kraken Base chapter that works with your Hyperborea chapter. If you'd like to know about it, just ask, but I won't release it on anything (unless you say) as the code is your property.

Also, what is the next story chapter resurrection you are working on now?

Hi, I'm having problems with this mod, there are missing textures here and there and they really distract me, textures such as Odell's blow torch, the pipes on the Hyperborea or just simple wall textures are missing. I have no idea how to fix this and I would really appreciate it if you could Help :)

Love this mod, can't wait for Episode One :D it better come out soon, I've been dying to play a recreation of Half life 2's original story and you guys are the only one's that have come close to making one. Great work, keep it up :D

I found that If you extract the HL2_textures_dir.vpk and ep2_pak_dir.vpk using the vpk tool, and moving the extracted models and materials folder into missing information, it will fix most of the missing textures. If it asks you to overwrite files, press no.

Damn it I accidentally -1'd your comment, I meant to +1 it. Anyways I have the same problem. Am I supposed to have Episode 1 and 2? I do but I don't know if there is an error with it not detecting the game or something. Please respond.

This modification not only follows the original valve art style but is also keeping users up-to-date again. With moronic individuals posting 5's out of 10 because of their lack of interest or understanding of a project of this scale, this leaves fans with pretty much all the knowledge of the Half-Life universe to rate a 10/10 and give information to support. Half-Life 2 was to have a 50+ hour campaign and have over 20 weapons. Fun fact: The Borealis in fact was owned by a scientific research team…

Well, it is a great mod, there have really been some work in this, but there is also some big glitches that makes it... bad. The stalker-looking enemies is not well made, they doesn't look good, but a nice detail with the laser, but it damaging a little too much. And if you have passed a checkpoint/loading screen, you can't go back without it crashes (or at least it was what happened to me). Then your partner tries to walk down stairs, he just flyes around it, walking in walls and so on, undtil…

@ValveTime @ModDB much appreciated.

Oct 31 2014, 3:23pm

@ValveTime the lack of a link to Missing Information's website or @ModDB page is rather disappointing to be honest.

Oct 31 2014, 1:34pm

@Mitchell_Mike let me think about it. We might have someone else ready. I'll keep you in mind though, thanks!

Oct 30 2014, 12:17pm

@41hc1 Make sure srcsdk07 is updated. It'll run just fine but you'll see various bugs depending on when you did a clean install of Half-Life

Oct 30 2014, 12:10pm

@Mitchell_Mike no, not at this time. We don't have access to a Mac which is required to compile (and test) the code on OSX. Some day,though!
