Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: The Core 2014 - Sedatephobia?

7 comments by Urby on Dec 3rd, 2014

Several sites featured our news article as thousands of Internet goers shared and retweeted. Reactions were mixed of course. For every person saying that the GoldSource engine still held up today, another would ask "What's the point?"

We have voiced our opinions on the GoldSource engine before in our Q&A videos. It's a part of gaming history, it's classic, it's clunky, it's frustrating, it's... lovable. The sheer number of projects both long running and new on this now 16 year old engine just goes to show that several people still have a special place in their heart for what is essentially a finely mangled Quake engine. :D

We don't expect to get anywhere near as many votes as last year, but we appreciate all the support we get from our followers and if you feel we're still worthy.

For old times sake, here are some of the most popular images from 2014.

To the developers of this mod:

Will this mod run for non-Steam Half-Life? You know, "pirated" Half-Life copy?

Certainly not in a stable state, if at all.
Half-Life is currently cheaper than a loaf of bread. Why not buy it?

But I live in Philippines. Can I buy Half-Life with the 'Peso' currency? I mean Steam uses USD, right?
Another question: What do you mean, "Certainly not in a stable state"? Please explain.

Steam uses a variety of currencies, plus it accepts Paypal as a payment method, allowing the easy conversion from -any- currency. We will not be testing The Core on any platform except Steam Half-Life, therefore other versions are susceptible to glitches and crashes.

So does that mean no support for the original retail version of Half-Life ( either? Well i guess that's understandable, keep up the good work though, i'm looking forward to playing this mod! :)

We are not officially supporting the WON version of the game as we are unable to test or carry out fixes on our end. The initial release will support Steam HL only.

If you have a box copy of HL, try activating it on steam with the CD-Key. Not sure if this still works but doing that got me the original game and the expansions on Steam. :)

Never mind. Looks like 'Peso' is available on Steam. I will try to buy it.
