------Map Instructions-----------------------------------------------

Install by extracting this archive with use folder names checked into
your Half-Life directory. It may only work with HL 1.1.1.0 or higher.

Start Half-Life, select "Custom Game" and activate "Xen-Warrior" then
start a new game. Or select "Xen Course" for a simple training first.

Alternatively you can start "Xen-Warrior" by using the included batch
file, but check that the Half-Life path is according to your setting.

------Additional Info------------------------------------------------

HINTS:
Most of these infos are also provided during the Xen Course training!
Gain health and armor by feeding on dead enemies. Weapons slot one is
a close range attack, weapons slot four is the usual hornetgun. While
using it, only close contact to the target or secondary fire mode can
destroy or move things. Parasitic Xen animals are still hostile, also
angry allies. Do you remember where you saw the last level before ;)?
Xen lifeforms show a red aura, Earth lifeforms a green one, others...

say contrary in the textfiles of Half-Life: Chronicles: Episode One.)

Theoretically yes, you'll only need to use the same tricks to turn the player into a Xen grunt that I did ;)!

You need to feed on dead enemies as the alien grunts are shown to do already in the original game!

A very nice mod that puts you in the shoes of an Alien grunt as he and his friends assault black mesa! You use the hornet gun and a melee attack throughout and you regain health and armor by consuming fallen enemies, bot parasitic aliens and humans such as grunts or security guards. It's very different and it works surprisingly well, forcing the player to be very aggressive when assaulting the enemy instead of falling back for supplies. It's quite short, and many of the levels have been ripped from…
