The Citizen is set parallel to the events of the original Half-Life 2. The player takes the role of an ordinary man, pushed over the edge by the oppressive regime controlling his life. His home trashed, his family dead, The Citizen leaves his apartment for the last time. He seeks new friends, and a way to help the human resistance to smash the iron grip of the Combine. What follows is a winding tale of betrayal, determination and grief. Many obstacles lie in his path which require a sleek combination of agility, stealth, intelligence, and sheer violence to overcome.

Originally released in November 2007 and re-released in February 2008, this singleplayer episode is still in the making. The Citizen Part 2 was released on December 24 2010.

Although The Citizen Part II follows the events of this mod, it will be a different download for which we want a different rating as we think it is a big improvement over our previous work. Don't forget to bookmark the new page!

Are you not supposed to be able to sprint, or is it a bug I have.

I have a problem, the mod starts but at the beginning when the CP breaks in and knocks out out I wake up standing and my view is frozen staring at the floor. I cannot move at all.

Is there a way to fix this?

Now that I just realised there is a patch right in front of me, you can download it and replace the installed mod files for the patched ones.

Me too, and that should be cannot find background image
materials/console/thecitizen_bg1_widescreen.vtf
There is an actual file with that name, but in a different format, that's VMT not VTF. So probaly the maker of the mod screw this part up. Changing it to "VTF" will damage the file. So, no way to play the mod unless they fix this and re-download it. Unless someone else found a way.

Copy the vtf files that don't have "_widescreen" in their file name and add it to them.

There are two files with "_widescreen" in their filename. One of them is called thecitizen_bg1_widescreen.vtf and I get the error anyway.

There are six files in the materials/console folder...

thecitizen_bg1.vmt (1 KB)
thecitizen_bg1.vtf (171 KB)
thecitizen_bg1_widescreen.vmt (1 KB)
thecitizen_bg2.vmt (1 KB)
thecitizen_bg2.vtf (171 KB)
thecitizen_bg2_widescreen.vmt (1 KB)

I guess the 1 KB sized files are just broken, aye? Means: there's nothing I could do about this issue?
