Description

I took all of the original Half-Life sounds and ran them through an AI, thus upscaling them to a high resolution

Sadly I don't use Xash3D but I was thinking, people have ported high quality sounding sounds for HL1, so what if you tried getting help from others for it to work in regular Goldsrc, by the way have you've tried doing Opposing Force or Blue Shift? I'd think that'd be pretty cool to try.

I think high quality sounds on Goldsrc is not exactly possible, because the sound from goldsrc is limited to 11025hz, if you put a high quality sound, it's going to have a hiss along with it. The Sven Co-Op engine (Svengine) has possibility to more than that but, i don't think Goldsrc can be modified and still be Goldsrc, not a new engine.

Of course, but there have been sounds that are high quality put into goldsrc and barely had a hissing sound, I do hope someday these voices could be transferred to the original goldsrc, but still you are quite correct.

i discovered this later, i searched a bit and i found that the weapon sounds are not limited, as for the dialogs and others, it has a hissing sound, but you are right

Yup, still a pretty good mod, hoping the creator makes support for the expansions, always wanted to hear what Otis sounded like without all that compression in his dialogue.

This mod is awesome! It works great in Lambda1VR. Please do this mod for Opposing Force, it really needs it.

Kinda yes but no - mostly can't spot difference (need some eq love), lots of clipping, some have oversaturated highs, some audio changed too much and barely resemble original sounds, some sound too synth, only some sound actually better. iZotope RX Spectral recovery is such a hit or miss, for better quality it's better find source audio, reverse ingeneering or just pick another sound

Well, I haven't exactly gone through every sound, I just automated it. By all means, if you have original audio, substitute my poorly remastered versions with superior ones. I'm not that big of a geek on the original Half-Life, so I didn't know where to find those kinds of "original" sounds

This is one of the most important Half-Life mods out there, as a person who has played the game at least 30 times, this mod feels fresh and on a good pair of headphones feels like an official remaster of sorts. Also, this is the first time Im playing on XHash3D, for some reason, it looks the same but feels better. Its like there is an authenticity to it that lacks in the steam release of Half-Life 1. Feels a bit closer to the WON release.
