Operation: Black Mesa is a total Source remake of Half Life: Opposing Force. Using the Source engine, the developers plan to recreate the Black Mesa research Facility as it was seen by Corporal Adrian Shephard of the H.E.C.U. Half-life: Opposing Force is still an amazing game, although it's not nearly as amazing as it was when it was released.

It's been a month since last release, and THIS time, the HECU have moved into control and our website has been revamped!

Posted by DragonNOR on Oct 25th, 2008

Hello everyone and welcome to Media Release number three! Like the summary said, its been a little over a month now since something happened here the last time, so we, the dev team, thought it would be nice to show a little of what has been going on.

The HECU division snagged much of the focus these last few weeks as two of our modelers worked hard to bring about an updated version of the HECU marine as well as the player hands. Here's a shot of the new marine:

And secondly, the marines fighting a desperate battle against Vortigaunts right after the Osprey aircraft has been downed by a Manta in the beginning of the game:

You'll be able to view the player arms in our moddb gallery later, but first and foremost on our very own new website. That is also where we will post our later releases first as well as any other kind of extras that we might think of making. So feel free to visit our new homepage at www.obmsource.com , and take a look around. Cudos goes to our webmaster who is the architect of both the code and the stunning visuals. We'll also be changing forums as soon as we get the database from the old one copied and transfered.

And not to forget; Don't forget to take a look at our very first trailer! It shows bits of the programming and animation done so far in the mod and without being very modest, it looks great ^^

So stay tuned. Things are in motion!

Alright, what exactly about the helmet and gasmask is it that you don't like? Colour,shape etc?

And as far as I remember, Shephard never had a radio on his person, thats why you used the stationary ones. At least a shortrange personal radio was never used when playing either passively or actively :/
