The Shadow Over Innsmouth is a single player Half-Life 2 Mod created for a school project with all the students of my class at NAD Center.

The game begins at night in the city, the player is awakened in his hotel room by loud noises at the door and must flee his hotel. His race will bring him into the narrow alleys of the city to end in the city sewers, but also in secret rooms that suggest dark ceremonies dedicated to the mythical god Cthulhu. Finally, he finds himself in an old port where it needs to reach a lighthouse in a final attempt to survive.

I havent found a way to fix this mod, I like the custom content and atmosphere created. Because its been broken by the source update, I was wondering if anyone knows a surefire way to get mods like this to run again?

This mod used to work quite well. Regardless of content or gameplay, it was easily installable and had no issues in the past. Valve loves their modding community, they encourage it, but they cant help but screw over the mods in their updates.
I really hope something can be done to get them fixed, so this mod and others can still be played.

Just started playing this and am getting a LOT of missing textures, more as I go, mostly walls. Will try some of the fixes. Looks mostly good so far, although I agree the Combine radio chatter is very much out of place, I hope it's something you can re-do, it would make quite a difference to the overall effect.

I have extracted the mod in SteamApps\sourcemods and restarted steam but it does not show up in the library, i have Half Life 2, Episode 1 and 2 and source SDK base 2007. I really don't know what the problem is my exp with steam and source based mods is very limited.

Used the fix to get it going. Forums.steampowered.com

Even then all I got was the "Lost Coast" menu without start, load or save. I used the map command to start it.

The mod is in rough shape. It isn't playable.

I do love where they were going with it. Had they had time to finish it I think it could have ended up with the same status "They Hunger" did back in the day.

But yeah, right now it's in pre-alpha shape. Shame too, this mod would have been great.

Its worth checking out. Just don't expect to get hours of fun out of it.

Contrary to what others may think, I see that this mod had a lot of research, time and effort put into it. The addition of so many custom objects and props, textures and re-skins etc. create a very chilling environment worthy of Lovecraft's praise. In case others do not know, and are wondering upon the origin of this mod. It is based upon "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" by renowned horror-writer HP Lovecraft. The story is all in there, and it is definitely worth a read for those that love a creepy story…

Lazy custom animations, nonsensical plotline and weapons, and nothign to tell you where to go.

Horrid mapping, even open spots where your'e able to get stuck, and the ending not only made no sense, but doesn't tell you your'e finished.
