Report article RSS Feed Half-Life: Dreamcast released!

The PC port of the ill-fated console version is now available to download!

Posted by Revenant100 on Jan 15th, 2012

Half-Life: Dreamcast is a PC port of the unreleased Sega Dreamcast console version of Half-Life developed by Gearbox Software originally slated for release in late 2000. The Dreamcast game contains a host of unique content that has not appeared in any other iteration of Half-Life, but up until now it was all confined solely to this forgotten port. That is, until now! The PC port allows you to play this lost game as a mod for Half-Life on Steam. This is a fascinating curiosity that any true Half-Life fan will want to check out!

Head to the download section now or simply click the link below:

Be sure you have Half-Life on Steam installed!

I'm missing something? This is a single player mod right? I start a game on medium and it will not load properly past c0a0c.

I have had reports that save games from the base Half-Life game are conflicting with the HL: DC mod. I was not able to personally replicate this bug yet, but here's one thing to try that worked for other people: Go to your Half-Life save game directory ( C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\ [SteamName]\half-life\valve\SAVE ) and either delete all files you find there or temporarily move them to a different folder.

If this helps, please tell me. I'm very interested in pinpointing a cause and solution for this problem.

Yep, that seems to be the problem. I renamed "half-life\valve\SAVE" to "half-life\valve\SAVE.old".

Whilst looking in "half-life\hldc\SAVE", I saw the valve saves had been duplicated, so i took the precaution of deleting them.

Once I got to the test Lab and quick saved, i renamed "save.old" back "save" and the loading issues re-appeared :(

I get the sneaking suspicion judging by the video that the Dreamcast version is not much different from what is already available on the PS2. I'll give it a try though.

Doesn't necessarily mean he's using the pirated version, I have an original HL CD-ROM sitting by my desk that I still use to run the game with.

Use the CD key that comes with your WON version of Half-Life, and activate it with Steam. Or pay $10.

Trailer just looks like regular HL with the Blue Shift HD/OP models. Will give it a go anyway. I love me some HL, even today. :)

What's the difference between this and standard Half-Life, besides some HD models and minor map differences?

How much of this did you port? I'm wondering if Valve tweaked any of the enemy AI for Half-Life Dreamcast, and if you implement those.

Not that it matters, I guess.

Looking at the skill.cfg of both, the DC version looks easier, also auto aim is enabled as default.

Um, how is this mod different from original hl? As far I can see from the trailer the levels are identical to hl.

I can't hear any music ingame. After I loaded original HL (Steam) and music plays normal. So it's mod bug, how I can fix it? I tried to replace mp3 files with hl music files but no luck, also tried deleting MEDIA folder in case mod can use media from VALVE folder but it's not worked...
