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:

In the only servers left, Cloak is too overpowered!

Aux regen is too high, so you can have infinite cloak. :(

I'm not sure if it's just a server thing, but at any rate if the admins read this, they should try making aux regen lower. (I'm sure there's a command for it.) Because Cloak is just super powerful now.

I play sometimes. I have seen a few people on. Never at the same time though. This game used to have a lot more modules but it was cut back. I also think the servers level slower then in the early versions. Otherwise this game is great.

I have only found 3 servers. Does anyone know of more?

Believe it or not, not as fun as you would think, and upping the difficulty wouldn't work either; since that would simply favor some module builds over others, amongst other things.

This is the sort of thing that would need its own carefully crafted campeign favoring (most) modules in their own way, and while i'm not against that (you could play on your own terms <3), i'd prefer to see modcom verison 3.0.

Besides, there are other games that have fps/rpg elements mish mashed together in singleplayer goodness, and its the multiplayer goodness that endears modcom to all of us anyway, amiright?
