Deep in the bowels of the Dismensionstore [a.k.a. Black Butte Research Labs/Station], a decommisioned missile base [a.k.a. Black Butte Missle Base/Arrowhead Base], a top secret project is underway. Information about the project is strictly on a "need-to-know" basis, and as a low level research associate you [Dyson Poincare/Aleph Librarian] "need to know" very little. Each morning you ride the train to work from the employee dorms, you put on your environmental protection suit, you enter the test chamber, and you run stress tests on whatever odd devices have been delivered from some other nameless part of the Dismensionstore compound.

But this morning is different [March 31, 2003]. This morning, your test lab is suddenly the most important place on Earth-because something is going seriously wrong. Maybe it's sabotage-maybe it's an accident. Whatever the reason, reality is getting all bent out of shape. One minute you're doing your job, pressing buttons. The next thing you know, you're staring into an alien world. Something huge with too many arms is taking a bite out of your partner's face. An explosion of unearthly light....then darkness.

Disaster. Sirens wailing. People screaming. And everywhere you turn, people are dying--being eaten. Monsters are everywhere. Monsters--there's no better word for them. You head fro the surface, to get the hell away from ground zero, but the usual routes are unpassable--damaged by the disaster, infested with headcrabs and houndeyes and increasingly larger and hungrier creatures. Madness is the order of the day. You enlist the help of traumatized scientists and trigger-happy guards to get through high security zones, sneaking and fighting your way through riuned missle silos and Cold War cafeterias, through darkened air ducts and subterranean railways where you must ride a missle transport sled straight into the jaws of slavering nightmare. When you finally come in sight of the surface [4:33 PM], you realize the aliens aren't your only enemies--for now the government forces have arrived with heavy-weapons goons, squadrons of ruthless containment troops, and stealthy assassin gals. Their orders seem to be that when it comes to Dismensionstore labs, nothing must get out alive....and especially not you, the guy who made it all go bad. So much for the cavalry.

When your own species turns against you, where do you turn? You've uprooted a bunch of nasty government secrets. You've found a portal to another world, and an alien light comes shining through. Can it get any worse over there? Some things you just have to see for yourself.

Ummm... WTF is this all about? Are you porting HL alpha to a newer engine?
Mod description doesn't tell a thing.

- Don't worry... This will be coming the last build. Now try to clean the code and return early glitchy codes HL.
- Your archive available all contents?
- Even the earliest informal screenshots and soundtracks of these links?:


PS. Thank you. That said so openly, honestly... I'm not a Pro. Started to work after Macedonian dispute about "Half-Life Prototype/Alpha/Beta", all said:
- Your the provided evidence "ALPHA bullet casings" is fake...

actually GioHASU0n, I don't have an issue with you, its with GaussGunner, he's stealing things from other people and claiming them as his own. You did a great job on providing credits to items and making people aware that you did not make all of the content in the mod.
The Half-Life Beta Revealed archive is available to download if you have a Half-Life Beta Revealed account, which all you have to do is sign up. It had a decent amount of files on it, not all but a large amount(you gotta realize that it stopped updating around 2011)
GaussGunner and JohnCopper(who i think is an alt) also keep updating Unknown Half-Life every time Shaft updates, trying to gain more attention.

Well, which content i claim as own ?_?

Theuaredead` May 20 2014, 1:34pm replied:

You've claimed various maps as your own, Maps that Zaxon, Cyber Solider, and Barnz made. You've also stolen a .WAD file from somewhere, along with various textures from Barnz. You also came to me with that archive claiming you found everything in it, when most of it came from the Half-Life Beta Revealed Archive. You can also see that some of the stuff was stolen from Combine Overwiki and Half-Life Wiki by looking at the file names.

GaussGunner May 20 2014, 1:42pm replied:

I isn't claimed any map as own. Barnz maps was public shared and i isn't uploaded any of his maps there, and IDK where his edited maps now. With TheCyberSoldier is our thing, i already delted his maps and we decided this matter with him. Zaxon maps????
I edited original alpha textures in Paint.NET, but isn't touched BarnZ textures. I isn't ever said what this archive founded by me. I already credited Half-Life: Beta Revealed, Combine OverWiki and Half-Life: Wiki.

You literately just added the credits once I posted the fact it was property to those sites, and you have stolen Barnz's textures, I can't say if you are now, but you have.

GaussGunner May 20 2014, 1:57pm replied:

I isn't known who was archive creator, i asked Magic_Nipples, he answered and i added. You said which sites i should credit - i creditted.
About BarnZ textures: Prove it. Yes, i have WAD, but i isn't used it and don't want. I can edit original textures myself.
When you stop hating me....
