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.

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:

Guys, you need to make people pay for the game.

Not an unfinished Early Access game, but a full game. You guys need the money after all the hard work you have put into it.

It's a mod. Not a game. Mods are free, you are already paying for Half-Life 2 and THIS IS mod for HALF-LIFE 2. It's not like Black Mesa, you still can get it for free on their page tho.

u dont get to decide if they should make it free or paid, u have nooo idea how hard it is making a video game, especially with a team this small size, the have families, work, A LIFE, amd theyre doing this in their free time for our entertainment, i say make it paid tripmine, ill gladly pay money for true hard work, they deserve every bit of it

Black mesa is mod ? Is free ? No.
Pay or free, making a opposing force remake is very hard and take time, dont is easy to make a game or mod. Trip mine decide if is free or not

Black Mesa got permission from Valve to make their mod cost money. Tripmine can't legally charge people for the mod without permission from Valve and probably Gearbox. That said, I hope there's somewhere people can donate to them for their work.

So, you are telling me that Black Mesa is not a mod? Wow, I mean just wow! I'm not telling about "STEAM RELEASE" (which is paid), im telling about ModDB version. I got it for free hopefully. But I agree, it's dev's decision.

So basically,OBM and GD both are "improved" mod for HALF-LIFE 2 isn't it?

I have one question about it:
Ally in OBM(HECU Soliders,Engineer, Medic), Will they switch their original weapon for another one?

(For example, Medic or Engineer can switch his sidearm to other weapon which on the ground or Shelf)
