39 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.

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.

The HMG and SMG2 should be in the mod as far as I remember. The Brickbat and missle launcher aren't. They're not being included.

Source SDK Base 2007 the SteamPipe edition. Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2: Episode Two would be good to have as well.

You can find the skins and models manually in the Half-Life 2 GCF files, if you've still got those lying around. If not then wait for a patch from us (no date yet).

As for the node graph out of date, that's not critical and won't affect your gameplay experience.

Sorry to be a pain, but where is the Half-Life 2 GCF folder located? I couldn't find it anywhere.

They used to be in "<path to your Steam Folder\Steam\SteamApps" but they're not being used anymore so they might not exist on your system.

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…
