To me the original looked strange by Rebel and Combine soldier covering each other's backs, and they both had AR2s in it. Maybe some other dev who knows how to randomize the loading screens will find your idea good.
No, when you start the game from Steam.
This is shaping into an awesome universe that deserves to be as popular as HL's original one.
Isn't the grip for right hand too thin, and where's the casing ejection window? Look up well-known bolt-action rifles like Mauser G98 or Lee-Enfield as this one has a handle to pull the bolt and clearly is a bolt-action one too.
How do I start a local server with bots in 3.1 unstable? I set Enable bots, but in game I cannot even go to console, it won't appear when I toggle it. Or is there a different way to add bots?
We had the news post in October, but today is the 100th anniversary of WW1's end
Is there a way to delete my comment? Wanna delete this comment
Just wondering, is the desolate look with no signs of life (blind windows, no hanging clothes outside etc.) intentional or it will be different later with detailing?
Teammate spells with two Ms, as it's comprised of team & mate, not tea & mate.
What was the creative liberty of Valve with MP7? The retail version doesn't have a real grenade launcher, and said liberties for SPAS-12 - are these only double shots or smth else?
P.S. What is Annabelle going to be in your design philosophy? A hitscan precise rifle?
According to Combine Overwiki, Annabelle appears to be inspired by the Winchester Model 1892, a rifle popular in Western film and TV series, and often used by actor John Wayne. Winchesters are available in a number of chamberings, including .357, and a shorter version also exists that matches the one used in the game. Actual Winchester rifles have a 15-round tubular magazine.
Thus, Annabelle fires pistol rounds. It would be unsafe to load sharp-bullet rifle rounds like those in the video into such magazine, as the ammo-feeding spring tension would make the caps of the cartridges get pressed against sharp bullet tips of the next round, which pressure could make them go off inside the magazine. That's why the smokeless powder rifles like Mauser 98 and Lee-Enfield already have vertical stack magazines.
Summing it up, using 357 Magnum rounds would be both historically accurate and convenient gameplay-wise, when Annabelle and Magnum share ammo, Annabelle being more accurate and Magnum allowing greater rate of fire as a double-action revolver but having greater spread and less accuracy.
I saw that crossbow replacement concept in the RTB book but never thought it was steam-powered! If so, it's a rather curious case of countering the latest Combine technology with Archimedes' invention from 3rd century B.C.!
The overcharge mode takes effect only when using certain generators for charging the armor.
A battle ostrich ;) may be fun.
Loud-22 buckshot blasts are pretty good against the suppressor at close range, you can even manage to destroy one of the devices in one load (4 shells).
If you hear HEV suit voice lines (oops, a small imperfection) not matching your Steam language/subtitle language, specify the desired language in HL2 EP2 properties.
Thanks for the advice, I uploaded the original image to the site, the colors stay distinct for the weakened sensitivity to any color :)
So cool! Only the signal flare fired from the flare gun should burn bright. It does, which is correct, e.g. in Missing Information mod.
And the AR2 has slow rate of fire, why?

Base Defense meets Brutal Half-Life :D
A modder I know told me his dream that he had had after working on a training area map where the protagonist's combat trial takes place.
He saw a large crowd of people going to pass the trial in his map, and he had to ask and persuade them to let him go first as he's the creator of the map. They believed, praised and applauded him, but still told him he was the last in the queue XD
I enjoy this post in its entirety so much!
Just wondering, which industry can it be that lets such flames out of chimneys?
Спальный вагон, что ли? Верхних полок нет. И какого года/образца вагон?
Interesting, the front looks like a 968 Wroom.ru but the rear part is from 968M which has no 'ears' for air intake and has rectangular rear lights Mir-automoto.ru
YEAH! An opportunity to play some pieces of your hard work soon would be LOVELY!
Is a demo version possible soon?
I am also ready to join as a voice actor both for English and Russian versions. Can do something like vortigaunt voice if needed.
Can its bipod be deployed on ledges for better accuracy?
