I've been craving Modular Combat for many months now and i couldn't bear to wait for Modular Combat 2 to come out so i thought i'd take a crack at fixing...
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).
To use the fix, you need the following installed:
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:
In addition, to give everyone a chance to play i put up 6 5 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:
Vanilla Maps Only: These are maps included with HL2DM and ModCom so you dont have to download anything. Gamemode change by vote is enabled.
Custom Maps Only: These are maps i converted to work with Modular Combat but you will have to download them but through FastDL. Gamemode change by vote is enabled.
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.
Coop PvM Only: A mix of all Vanilla and Custom maps so sometimes you'll have to download through FastDL. Gamemode change via vote is disabled.
PvPvM Only: A mix of all Vanilla and Custom maps so sometimes you'll have to download through FastDL. Gamemode change via vote is disabled.
