The Core T-shirt

Unfortunately due to Urby's new job / new baby / new house, we've had to postpone releasing the actual Q&A video, but it shouldn't take too much longer. I keep telling him that The Core is more important than his infant child, but the fool seems to think otherwise. I'll keep pestering him, but in the meantime thankyou so much for all your brilliant questions; there are so many more than we expected!

Picking the winner wasn't easy, either. In the end it was extremely close between JeffMOD, TheSkunk & flippedoutkyrii. JeffMOD won it because we think it prompted the most interesting answers!

Not to worry, though! There will be more competitions in the near future, not to mention the actual mod's release!

If you're dying to show your support and get your hands on a shirt before the next competition, gimme a private message for a special order. Because we're not buying in bulk, shirts cost £25 including post and packaging.

Sorry to keep you waiting!

How long do you estimate the mod is relative to HL1, Op4, and BS?

There are thirty maps. If you spend an average of seven minutes per map (I'd estimate between 5 and 10 is realistic) you're looking at three and a half hours. Speed runners will probably be able to more than half that, and those who like to smell the roses will probably be looking at closer to five hours (10 minutes per map)

NGHL (New Gauge Half Life) is a client for speedrunners.. but it has a lot of cool features tho!
You should try it out. ;) Anyway I've reijstalled NGHL only.. but maybe it's really because of the Steam version. I will try that thank you. :)

Well looks great.. but since I can't play ANY mods on my PC anymore I will not be able to play it when it comes out.. really frustrating to think about it.

But keep up the work!

Yeah, not sure why you wouldn't be able to play mods, unless you didn't own Half-Life, or if your PC doesn't run games or something...

Well I tried to get Half-Life Blue Shift on my NGHL client and since then it just crashes when I try to play any mod for Half-Life 1. And on Steam too... but I can play HL1 somehow...

I dunno about NGHL, but if mods aren't working on steam it sounds like your installation is knackered. I'd consider reinstalling if you haven't already.
