The Gate II is the long awaited sequel to hit Half Life 1 mod 'The Gate'

It is a FULL conversion of Halflife II and hence will have all models changed, all skins, all new weapons!

Using the power of The Half Life II engine The Gate II will bring alive the world like never before! The story continues from where the last game left off, this time The TimeGate will take the player to amazing new world in distant universes. Unlike the first Game The Gate II will feature many more enemies to fight! Some Alien some Human and a few more besides.. We have a full inventory of Professional voice actors on our team so The Gate II will of course feature a full movie style script. The Gate II like its predecessor will also be released with a full classical musical score.

Go Play The Gate 1 to find out more!

It will set you up for the ride of your life

This mod is NOT related to Stargate at all!

Hey all

Just letting everyone know the mapping is 100% complete now and I currently in the process of adding the musical score and the choreographed routines and lip syncing via the ‘faceposer' program and the script...

Face poser was a right pain to learn but once you get it its okish to use...

The time now is waiting for voice actors to get there lines to me... and as the script fort the gate II is big compared to the gate I then there is a lot of lines to wait for..

Thanks for everyone for hanging in there..

But we are on the final stretch at last..

Man, this mod has been in development for close to 9 damn years. I remember drooling over the screenshots for this mod on planethalflife way back in 2005!

I'm stoked to finally play this! :D

How do your Nazi NPC models look? Sorry for asking. I'm interested.

Also, will the voice acting be better?

ALSO, will the cutscenes be as long and annoying as the first?

Sorry. I loved the first, but I feel like it had big downfalls.

Hey fritz,

The models on the gate II of the german soldiers are a lot more detailed than the Gate 1 of course because its newer engine and the quality of the models have improved..

Yes the voice acting is a lot better lol it couldn’t be much worse than the first Gate could it lol, the voice actors for the Gate 1 were all amateurs apart from a few and this came across in the final product.. In The gate II all the voice actors are professional with most of them having a long history of acting..

Yes there is cut scenes in the gate II, not sure how long is long, but I feel these are a must to drive and tell the story to the player, without these I think it would be just another first person shooter… Of course cut scenes like everything else are subjective some hate them some like them..

Glad you enjoyed the first and Yes I realized and learnt the hard way that the first gate had BIG issues that earned it mixed reviews, I learnt a lot making the first game and in the Gate II most of these issues were addressed ie. Voice acting and face posing (the lips never moved in the gate 1).. well this dosn’t happen in the gate II, along with professional voice actors and actual face poser animations and facial expressions it really dos make a huge difference..

The Gate II is a BIG mod, with other 35 maps in total hence taking it so long not to mention bouts of illness between making it. So no doubt everyone isn’t going to be happy, but you cant please everyone all the time I guess..

If you enjoyed the gate 1 story then hopefully you will like the gate II as the story continues from where the gate 1 finished…

Im around about half way now adding the script and the music to the game so that’s good news and I can see the finishing line at last.. If I had known face poser and the inclusion of VCD files was such a pain in the arse I wouldn’t of made such a large script but its written now so nothing I can do

Speak soon and thanks for your comments
