The Prophecy:
One will be called the Freeman
One will be called the Gman
One will bring chaos
The destroyer of Worlds
One brings balance
The saviour of our race
Cautious you actions
The prophecy is at hand

Transitions is the place in-between Half Life & Half Life2, exploring the possibilities of what went on during this time. The player (Gordon) is running through the Black Mesa facility and into the Xen world bringing destruction with him. Exploring the possibilities of what went on during this time, the Vortigaunt are still unaware as to who is who (good or bad, the prophecy), Freeman or Gman. The Vortigaunt perceive Freeman (Gordon) as the destroyer of worlds and the Gman as the saviour. Until they realise that Gordon ‘is’ the saviour they will continue to battle against him until they find the truth.
Transitions will enable Gordon, along with the Vortigaunt to establish, truly ‘who’ is ‘who’. The scene takes place where Half-Life left off; you are on a train in some strange space travelling sequence, the Gman offers Gordon the option to work for him or alternatively face a challenge he has no chance of winning. Should you decline the Gman’s offer you are sent back to Xen confronted by hundreds of Xen armies and with no weaponry to defend yourself, the screen descends to black and the credits begin to roll. Should you have taken the Gman’s offer then you are placed into stasis, until the advent of Half-Life 2 and the story continues.
Transitions will allow the player to choose not to work for the Gman, but to fight your way through Xen, but this time with the chance to defeat the enemy foes you are confronted with. This leads to many different and yet not so dissimilar places experienced in the original Half-Life. When ‘you’ the player reach the end of the game, and open the final portal, you unleash the combine invasion to truly take its grip and overthrow the Xen race. The screen fades and again are confronted by the Gman on the train, who explains that any choice you make is always advantageous to him, and that you have always being working for the Gman and always will.

Great idea, and glad the dev. decided not to take on too much, but this mod just isn't much fun. 5 for effort, needs way more refining though.

More fun combat then most other mods, blasting down Vort's is what it’s all about hehe :) and they put up a pretty good challenge. There has probably been made something similar in HL1, but it’s still a fun story and the intro with G-Man was good. Xen looks okey, very nice back round, but there could have been some more different monsters. What kind of ruins the atmosphere is that there is combine corpses lying around and you use combine weapons, also the Vorts probably haven’t learned any human words yet.
However that is not enough to ruin the fun of shooting down Vort's.

With the Transitions_English.txt file set up as it is currently, saves display as HL2_Saved, the Shotgun displays as HL2_Shotgun, etc. When you change the lines to HL2_ from Transitions_ they will display as you intended, Transitions Saved, Shotgun, etc.

Good luck.

When I play the game, after I enter the portal at the beggining, It says "To continue this path Load and Play Half-Life2 Including Half-Life2 Episode one". I don't have Episode One -I have beaten it though- . Can I still Play?


You simply do not enter the portal, the idea behind Transitoins is that you decline the Gmans offer of work by not enter the portal, from which you are then transported into the actual game :-)

Also, in your Transitions_English.txt file, you need to change all the lines which begin "Transitions_..." to "HL2_..." except for the chapter titles on lines 6 to 9. This will fix the weapon names, which currently display incorrectly.


What issues are you experiencing? i don't seem to have issues with any of the weapons? and have tried on several different machines, Oh and thanks for your input it's very much appreciated, i've taken several steps to ensure that the level are within winnable conditoins, by both reduction of the vortigaunt attack points and health, inclusive of health ponds nearby almost every battle situation, howver will look into this further.

Thanks again :-)
