It is nearly the same story as in Half-Life, but with a few differences. As Gordon Freeman you jumped into a teleport in the Half-Life level 'Lambda Complex' and entered the world of Xen.
In my altered story you don't land in Xen, you land in another, unknown part of Black Mesa, because the scientist in the Lambda Complex mixed up the coordinates 'a bit'. After a long unconsciousness you wake up and don't know where you are, and you've lost your suit and all your weapons during the teleporting sequence! You heard the soldiers saying they're going to fall out, but, however, some of them are still here and have the order to eliminate you, Gordon Freeman.
And you must find a way to escape from Black Mesa....

Almost eight years after its original release I managed to release an updated version of Times of Troubles which includes some (subtle) changes:

  • updated maps (especially the first one)
  • some new textures
  • one new sound file (very subtle)
  • updated menu background
  • new installer system

I created this version since I never liked some things about the original release. Most of the visible changes are in the first map which is very old and never received an overhaul. I hope some of you will play the new version and enjoy the memories :)
PS: The old version is still on the server since there a lot of sites that link on the file.

I playthroughed your game:

Its was a short fun mod. I liked it.

Started out promising then turned into one of those typical mods where: there is too little ammo, too many enemies, and has areas that force you to noclip due to doors not opening or being accessible when they are supposed to be.

The mod was nothing like that. At least not for me at least. Unless you were trying to generate the mod on a toaster or microwave oven or whatever.

Yes you can. Just use a custom Barney model and there you go... problem replicated.

Funny. I have this problem every time, even with the default models.

Fun mod, but I didn't know what to do when you get to the surface and the helicopter is there.

Hey, the security guard should enter the helicopter after the gate is open and all the soldiers are dead. After that just enter the helicopter yourself and you're good to go :) In rare cases the security guard would not enter the helicopter. Unfortunately I couldn't reproduce this issue :(

Anyway, thanks for playing and glad you've enjoyed it :)

Nicely made mod spiced up with models from other official HL games.. I like.

Another fun, short mod. This one was more challenging than most of the other short mods for me. I ended the game with almost no health. I give it an 8/10.

Although the game works with steam, there are a lot of textures missing (even with the hd fix). The level design was o.k., but nothing out of the ordinary. In the end, it was too boring for me to finish this mod.

P.S: I agree with ice_trey. Why do they have to make an installer for this kind of mod? Zipped files are better!
