Media Release 2015


Hi there and welcome to this year's first and, oddly enough, singular update!
There's a lot to talk about, so let's get right to it:

First off, we'd very much like to apologize for the lack media releases on our part. While we did intend to focus more on the actual task at hand and spend less engery on presenting it, we didn't expect things to get so busy and found ourselves pushing our updates further and further.
As many of you may have noticed, our website is currently down. That's mainly due to technical and usability issues. We are however setting up a new forum and hope to interact more with you guys once that's up.

NPC Recruit Operation Black Mesa: Recruit


But, and this comes from the whole team: We are very thankful and touched to see so many of you being as excited as ever, hanging in there, showing your support and even boosting us into the top 100 on MOTY albeit having heard and seen nothing for almost 2 years. It really means a lot to us and it's a great reassurance that a lot of folks want this mod to exist as much as we do. A big thanks to all of you; keep being awesome!

Status Update

So, what's the status on Operation Black Mesa and Guard Duty?
They are both being worked on with full energy and equal priority.

Guard Duty is being developed as DLC / expansion for the bigger and more content-heavy Operation Black Mesa, so it won't require an extra greenlight campaign. So if you are especially interested in Guard Duty, be sure to check on Operation Black Mesa; we report on both mods side by side as they are very close together in terms of progress.

As a token of us being very much alive and kicking as ever (or early Christmas presents if you will), enjoy the rest of our previews:

You can take your patience with you, pal. We want to see something new. It's been so long. How about that promised but not released trailer? Or at least something that can tell us the waiting will be over soon. Not just your words...words are wind. Anyone can say anything...Men are men, vows are words, and words are wind.

Was the December media release not enough for you? Because if wasn´t then you´re rude and ungratefull. You do realise that:

1. ...they are ordinary people like you and me - they have jobs/schools to attend, family/children to take care of...the whole team doesn´t work full-time on this 24/7

2. ...they´d mentioned it many times that creating some media for release takes some amount of time, which they want to spend more on the mod itself

3. ...yes, they maybe promised a teaser or something...they even promised a 2014 beta for multiplayer (I think, please correct me someone if I´m wrong) ....and yes, it didn´t happen, but they have explained reasons why ....

4. they gave us a clear release date - when it´s done ...they won´t release the mod untill they´ll be sure about it´s stability and playability

5. "men are men, vows are words, and words are wind" ....and patience brings roses, my friend...most of us here are patiently waiting for the mod (or maybe next media)...did you know that after the failed 2009 release of BM, the Crowbar Collective has shown only few (not joking, only few) media pieces untill 2012? And still it was worth waiting ...same goes for the OBM and GD ...it´s worth waiting even with only few media releases a year :)

First of all, I didn't say anything about December media release. I didn't say anything about it's not enough for me or anyone. I have a wonderful quote for you 'When someone accuses you of doing something you're not doing, it's usually because they're the ones doing it''...that means you. By the way, read my previous comments about this mod because you know nothing about me. Don't ever accuse me something that I'm not.

1. I didn't say anything about why they are not showing us new things. All I said ''It's been so long we want to see something new. Or at least something that can tell us the waiting will be over soon. Not just your words''...(Don't trust everything you see. Even salt looks like sugar)

2. Again, I didn't demand anything I just said my thoughts. Hello???

3. Again with the Jesus, I know they explained why...It's been so long, do you know what that means right? When I said ''How about that promised but not released trailer''...don't you think that trailer/teaser could have been made because we're in 2016. How many days/months passed since that day? (Those reasons were valid that year. Not this.

4. Why are you saying stuff that I didn't even say? You're clearly not okay.

5. Did you know patience means waiting for something? So we are waiting for an update, right? And how many months has passed since the last update? Exactly.

Look...you´re just saying your thoughts, but so am I, if I sounded offensive then I apologize that wasn´t my intention ....
"It´s been so long" ...you do realise that before the last update the previous update was on March 2014 (If I don´t count one or two more screenshots throughout that year)? They know you, me, all of us want to see something new .... but by writing "we want something new" (which is similar to "we want more") you´re not helping.......and let me ask - for how long have you been waiting for this mod (or just media update)? ...because if for a long time, then you should already know that you need to be patient......

Those weren't some innocent thoughts. If you call them a thought, go ahead. You twisted my words (That means, you're restating my words in a way that would not mean the same thing).

You said ''.you do realise that before the last update the previous update was on March 2014''
My answer: I don't understand what you're implying. Still, I've never mentioned anything about previous updates...never said they are not enough or anything like that.

And I know the fact...they know we want to see something new.

Again your words which you're clearly trying to twist my words again: but by writing "we want something new" (which is similar to "we want more") you´re not helping...
My answer: I don't know why you're trying to twist my words. I only said ''WE ALL WANT TO SEE SOMETHING NEW''...I repeat ''WE ALL WANT TO SEE SOMETHING NEW''. I didn't say ''YOU MUST SHOW US SOMETHING NEW'' I didn't say ''YOU WILL SHOW US SOMETHING NEW''. I didn't demand anything. Those were just my thoughts. You know what demand means, right? And I'm not helping? Not helping to what? I didn't post any negative comments...I didn't try to change people's minds. I didn't ''TWIST'' anybody's words. You're right about one thing by writing that sentence...You're right, I'm not helping their project because I'm not one of the creators or a developer. I'm not in their team. I'm not working with them.

I've been following this mod for 6 years...(since 2010)

Again, it's been so long since the last update.

Look, pal...it's not about seeing some new stuff just to know if this mod is still alive. It's about knowing that they work really hard to finish this game. We've seen lots of updates until this day. Yeah, I know. But seeing new things always the best. We know they work hard to finish it. But not seeing something new makes you feel like they don't want to deal with it that much. Just they're reluctantly doing it just because they gave their words. I mean, if we're gonna see those updates every December, then what's the whole point for hearing ''You're gonna see some stuff soon. Don't worry, you'll see something soon''. They can just say at the beginning of every year ''We are gonna post new stuff at the end of the year. Just be patient''. (I'm not saying that you should post new updates every months...but at least they could have posted something new in the middle of 2016.)

Not sure if you guys are aware, but it seems like there is some type of internal error on your website.
