Modular Combat is a role-playing shooter based in the Half-Life universe.

The Resistance, Combine, and Aperture Science are testing the HEV Mark VI Combat System. Combatants face off against each other, and monsters, in the Controlled Combat Testing Facility, which is monitored by a super-computer known as BoSS.

There are over 50 modules that can be upgraded at any level, in any combination. Modules give combatants amazing abilities such as flying, teleporting, spawning minions, and shooting flechettes or energy balls. Basically, if you want to kill something in a special way...

We have a module for that.

Note: The Modular Combat that you can currently download is broken due to an update by Valve (to its resource package format).

Well i managed to do just that! and not only did i do it, i wrote a batch file that completely automates the task for you! (damn thing took me over 8 hours to write and debug).

Important: If you have any of these games installed to a custom path outside of your "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam" directory then this fix will not work for you. You will have to do the manual fix or temporarily move the games back to their default steam directory.

To use the fix, you need the following installed:

  • Team Fortress 2 (the batch file uses a tool in TF2)
  • Half-Life 2: Deathmatch
  • Half-Life 2: Episode 2

These 3 are required for the game to work flawlessly. If you don't own Half-Life 2: Episode 2 then a couple of enemies will show up as huge red error models. If you plan on playing the upcoming Half-Life 3, i suggest you get Half-Life 2: Episode 2 because Half-Life 3 apparently will continue the storyline. Episode 2 costs $8 on Steam and you can get it here.

If you dont have Team Fortress 2 (it's free and won't cost you a penny) or don't want to install Team Fortress 2 then you'll have to do the manual fix. I haven't started on the video tutorial for the manual fix yet but once its ready, it can be found here. I also have to rewrite the server tutorial, so i'll do that tomorrow too.

To run the fix do the following:

  1. Download the zip on the downloads page.
  2. Extract the contents of the zip someplace on your hard drive.
  3. Double click "Fix Modular Combat.bat".
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions.
  5. Wait. The whole process will take several minutes to complete and if you close the window, you'll have to start it all over again.

In addition, to give everyone a chance to play i put up 6 servers. I don't know if my server box can handle this many and if i can even host more than this, but we'll see how it handles it.

Each server is different:

Mixed Maps: A mix of all Vanilla and Custom maps so sometimes you'll have to download through FastDL. Gamemode change via vote is enabled.

Alright, well, this is frustrating. Every time I try to connect to a server, as soon as it finishes loading, my game crashes. I have reinstalled Modular Combat twice, the first time not completely removing it from my Desura account. I have verified Modular Combat, Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Deathmatch, Half-Life 2: Lost Coast, Half-Life 2: Episode 1, Half-Life 2: Episode two, and launched all of the forementioned games successfully. I can run and play Modular Combat on a lan server, but it crashes when I join one of the official servers. Any help would be greatly appreciate. This is my favorite mod.

Hi Dylan, you should be getting a crash dump file in your Steam\steamapps\<username>\source sdk base 2007 directory. Can you post a link so I can check it out? Dropbox will work fine.

Same thing is happening to me too. I can join any other server but the one server people are actually playing on.

Once servers get empty, it's almost impossible to get them repopulated, maybe there could be steam group events or something?

Hello friends!
I have problems with all Mods to play Online!
I see to find the servers, so it appears that:
there are no games in the internet primary server to pass on their definitions of filter.
I have not changed anything in the filter definitions!
My game is from Steam!
recently bought the Orange Box!
I have Half Life 2, episode 1, episode 2 and Lost Coast!
Thank you!

NMRiH mod authors found possible solution for the servers problem. I hope it will work for Modular Combat servers too.
