The only gameplay I've found is on youtube, and was old.

Even then, it looked ******* amazing. Got an ETA when V2.0 is released?

I think we should be done with the HL2 campaign in a week, and with the addon in 2. It's a map pack hosting classic maps like Strider Mountain, The Citizen, Rock 24.

I hope that you get this mod up and running again, Substance was one of my favourite mods to play many years ago

I am so glad Substance is coming back! :D

Vanilla Half-Life 2 is just so lame.

Unfortunately, the engine update for HL2:EP2 broke Substance and many old mods. But we're investigating the possibility of resurrecting it through different means, expect developments in the near future.

Since I've recently built a new machine, I'd be super excited to play through this mod again with the beauty of the current Source engine. :D

I found out how to fix the ai disabled bug:
1. Open autoexec.cfg with notepad in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\sourcemods
2. At the bottom of the text, make a new line and add
ai_norebuildgraph 1
3. Finally, save the file.

Made a mistake, the path is actually C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\sourcemods\HL2Substance\cfg
