The first mode involves warfare. In the base of the Sahara desert, you will protect your base alone. Watch out for the incoming attack. Take advantage of the objects in your vicinity. Eg: Encrypted weapon box.

The second mode is a bit more fun with platform maps. With the Ricornet-style playing style, you will complete the puzzles by leaping between the platforms. Try not to drop your health bar.

Old timer from 199-whatever checking in. Spirit of Half-Life was SO good back in the day. It changed the dynamic of my mapping completely.

Hey guys, don't cry if something doesn't work! The guy behind this put alot of work into this and you have to respect that. If something doesn't work, learn to code and code it.

Here is a citation:
"All versions work so don't complain if a version doesn't have something, because either its too old or you have to code it yourself."

No. Wrong. If you put out a project and say "It has this feature." and that feature doesn't work as advertised, that is not on the user. That is on the CREATOR.

Here's a question: HOW DO YOU INSTALL SPIRIT OF HALF-LIFE?
I cant find out anywhere, and I've already tried a number of ways to get it to work from simple to complicated.
