Also, the Vista patch is out and has been for a long time! All you have to do is check the news, people. Here's the link:


It feels like it's the only thing you've ever done. Run. Ran. Fled.

But who could blame you?

It started with the flu, or some sort of strange cold. That shit doesn't matter now. What matters is the fact that zombies, and strange monsters, and god knows WHAT else are out there. Better yet, they're right behind you.

Kill them? Fat chance. The only gun you've seen in a good amount of time ran out of ammo hours ago, and that rusty old pipe in your hands doesn't look like any zombie killer you've ever seen.

Finally, you see something that looks safe. Its an old Inn, the kind you'd see on the side of the road while driving down an interstate. You seem to have traveled from the city a bit, and the door to the main building is open. As you draw closer, and closer, it shuts!

Suddenly, the entire situation seems ten times worse. From all around, zombies are swarming over you.

You bring the pipe up, and hope for the best. WHAM, one rotting bag of flesh falls to the ground as its skull is cracked, but the rest of them are on you in a heartbeat.

Well, shit, you think. Better luck next time.

Welcome to Resident Evil: Cold Blood

Cold Blood is an online story driven coop mod based in the Resident Evil universe. You'll come across many areas from the games, plus a few original areas you'll have never seen before. Using weapons you thought you'd never use, you'll dispatch dozens of different kinds of monsters from Hunters to Giant Spiders to our favorite deadites, zombies.

Cold Blood is a Half Life 1 mod, and will be available when it's released. And yes, it's been released.

3 comments by Minuit on Sep 25th, 2008

By the way, the Vista patch is OUT and has been for ages, for those who didn't know. Look in the news section.

Are you a server operator tired of the game crashing, due to that damn "No Free Edicts" error? Well, you don't need to worry anymore! It's been fixed, thanks to Silencer and Scotsman!

Here's what you need to do. It's very simple!

Silencer wrote:
Necessary Background Knowledge:
Edicts are slots for entities. If too many entities are spawned and the limit has been reached, the server will crash with the Error message "No free edicts". There have been various discussions on how to fix this, for example by setting maxplayers to 32 because every new player-slot gives 15 additional edict-slots, while setting sv_visiblemaxslots to whatever you want to have as maximum.

Somewhen in 2004 the Valve Developer Alfred Reynold added a command line to HL 1 which
allows to increase the default amount of edicts from 900 to anything you want! The problem is,
that noone got ever informed about it. The command line is "-num_edicts x" without the quotes
and x being a number from 900 to infinity! You can now have as many entities as you wish for!!

You set it up like this:
-> Steam Games List
-> Right click on any goldsource modification - In this case, RE:CB
-> Properties
-> Set launch options
-> Write "-num_edicts 2047" there, without the quotes. The number may vary.
-> Close both windows with the Ok button
-> Start your game and spam entities

The final edict-count is maxplayers * 15 + the number you specified, if it is 900 or larger.

I found out about it here!
It works like a charm!

For first impressions - it was not that great. I really like the iron-sights capabilities on some of the weapons, but it was still missing crosshairs on some of the other weapons, the weapons felt weak. The fact that you couldn't do anything when the zombies bit felt bad as well. And it seems that this mod is aimed more towards people with low ping, I'll play it again when my internet shapes up but for first impressions like I said, it wasn't that great. Looking forward to the later versions.

After inumerous tries I managed to get it working for half a second before the only server available with one bot crashed.

Making this mod 2 player minimum was a bit silly, in my opinion. I couldn't even play it! :(

Go to F:\Program Files\steam\steamapps\YourSteamUser\half-life. Right click hl.exe and click on properties. Click on the Compatibility Tab, check Run this program in compatibility mode for, then select Windows 98/Windows Me. Click OK, then run the mod with OpenGL and you should be fine. =)
