A semi-episodic short form single player experimental alt mod for HL2:Ep2 trying to bridge the gaping canyon between Tale of Tales and commercial game design.

That was the most clever mod I've ever seen!

*SPOILER* *SPOILER* *SPOILER*

Since I can't take anymore of these unthoughtful memories, I decided to refresh my mind, clearing all the obstacles of bad and good.

And then, 'that' memory happened.

So (since there was no X9, wth? A misplaced memory, probably) that memory had to be placed somewhere, but I decided to clear it.

Actually, this is where I'M STUCK. D:
I hear the husband say the correct 'phrase', since it was thoughtful then his rambling, and....I can't seem to 'finish the game'.

If I exit through the exit door, it's another 'game over'.
So now what? Am I in an endless loop of repair?

Yeah, not much fanfare with the ending unfortunately. I wasn't sure how to pace it all.

So is there a place for the very last box? Or you have to break it anyway if you want to.

Yes, can you find a place for it or not?

No place for last box. Game is about solving James's troubles, worries about life together. James mind is shattering under pressure and troubles, he is falling into depression. Exiting very early you give up and die (you shatter/kill his mind, and/or him).

If you try to solve and engage into conversation, with problem solving boxes (problem solving in real life, puzzle of life and communication), you get to good result.

You solved boxes, and his problems are gone. They go to live together.

But still you get X9 box, it is those deep mind problems he is still having issues with. Although it doesn't have place, it's irrational.

You can decide to try find it's place, and in the end BREAK IT (no, there is no right place for X9). But James will shatter again. Even he did cooperate and for sometime walked good path, he still goes back to his trouble fixation.

OR!!!
You can just leave X9 and exit. James will live happy life without worries, ignoring his problems and saying **** you MIND.

I could have gone deeper, or better explanation but I'm lazy :=)

Does this mod need Steam to run?

The only reason you would want to not use Steam is if you pirated it. For this one time, I'd say HL2 is worth the buy.

The word 'mod' implies that it is a modification of something else, but not completely different, i.e. it still uses the original something(in this case HL2). HL2 requires Steam. Therefore, yes, this very obviously requires Steam.

To some ignorant people, what is so wrong on playing a queer?
The only gay people I saw in other games were stereotype gays (that's funny, yes, but something else like here is better), so only prejudiced idiots wouldn't play this because the hero is a queer.

And this is a very good mod, which is thoughful, has an awesome storytelling, etc. not many people manage to do this on Source Engine *claps hands*

Well then it's a shame your homophobia isn't going to change a thing. The mod is great the way it is.

**FIX***

Open the gameinfo.txt in Steam\steamapps\sourcemods\morematter and replace everything with this: Pastebin.com

Now to get missing models/textures working download GCFScape and open program. THIS WILL REQUIRE ADDITIONAL HARD DRIVE SPACE.

1. Go to steamapps\common\Half-Life 2\ep2 and open up ep2_pak_dir.vpk to get the list.

2. Highlight the materials/models/particle folders and extract (right click) into steamapps\sourcemods\morematter

all models and textures should now work properly

1-2 uses textures from Ep.1, extract the materials folder in steamapps\common\Half-Life 2\episodic (ep1_pak_dir.vpk)
