Scottish, and full of beans. The creator of Half-Life: Echoes, a tribute to my favourite game; and to thank all the people who created custom content over all these years that I have enjoyed.
All the best to you. Becoming a parent can change your entire world in ways you could never expect, but your message already shows you are ready to support your family no matter what. That takes courage and strength! Take all the time you need on this. I very much look forward to playing it when it is done :)
:) very kind words!
The actual character name can be whatever you would like it to be! I never had a specific name in mind...
Life can be so unpredictable and seemingly unfair at times. I wish the best for you and your family.
I immensely look forward to playing your work - but take your time and focus on the things that matter.
Can you hear the siren? Does the dialogue continue with nothing on the screen after?
Can you tell me the error message?
The mod folder in the Half-Life game folder should be called echoes - not echoesv1.3
I am very much looking forward to this :)
Not yet - I will one day :)
You will have a Rush CD in your computer - half life looks to play music from the game CD - even on the steam version! Good choice in album, but it won't go with my mod haha :)
Hello - the mod will have to be run in OpenGL as software mod will not cope with the level of detail. The mod does push the standard Half-Life engine quite far and does need a fairly modern PC spec to run well.
You could try using the Xash3D engine here
I have never used this myself, but if you have issues you could contact that page?
A fan patch for Echoes and Xash is available here
I hope you get it working!
That is because I did not hard code the HUD colour, it is set by a map entity! I had the idea of changing the HUD at some point during the maps but never did it. Long ago, before I had really made any progress on this, I had the idea of having multiple characters you would play but this would have just complicated things
Not without a loooot of work, it would essentially be porting the mod to source!
Teşekkür ederim! (I used google translate, apologies for any errors :) )
Hi there - I never understood what might have caused this issue for some people. Perhaps you could try this fan made patch -
No plans to remake it!
Raising my son! Maybe I will come back to a new project in a good few years time :)
Make sure you use the reply button on his posts to send a comment to him, you are posting new comments to my mod which implies the messages are for me :)
You would not be able to view the source maps on android, you would need an editor program (I used J.A.C.K)
Internet back pat received! Thank you very much, and congratulations yourself on the nominations :)
Thank you! Perhaps my mod could be considered vanilla with chocolate bits :)
Click read more on the source maps download page for the description - they are the level editor files for my maps:
"This is a collection of all my original Echoes source .rmf files, along with the VHLT compiler tools I used to compile my maps. Also included are lights.rad, and the .fgd files for Spirit of Half Life and ZHLT entities.
This is provided as-is with no support, and intended for advanced users who understand mapping.
I created these maps in the J.A.C.K. editor.
All required WAD files can be found in the original Echoes mod .zip file.
I apologise in advance for my very messy mapping style, and obtuse entity names!"
Hi there, I am not working on any android ports - the android port of Echoes was done by this user:
Thank you so much for voting for Half Life echoes everyone, I am overjoyed at making the number 3 slot! I will make a proper update once I am back from holiday, but congratulations to everyone and have a great new year. There are definitely some amazing mods released this year!
Have a great Christmas everyone - I can definitely feel all the love this year! :)
You guys are all the best :)
I drove myself a bit mad over the five years I worked on my mod. It was initially just my "spare time" which became "all my time" which then seeped into my dreams. Keep it within your scope :)
What a fantastic approach to your narrative. I am hyped :) Merry Christmas!
This issue only seems to affect a small amount of people and i never figured it out - just ignore that door and go in the lift. Its just a small scripted sequence that you will skip! It is not needed to proceed
Check the readme - it has instructions on how to fix it
Although, playing v1.3 through steam *should* negate the issue
They contain the mod code! I use a modified of the spirit of half life engine which adds extra control over entities and model replacement.
