Far Crab is a Half-Life 1 modification using the Spirit of Half-Life features.

Scenario
The game takes place just after the HL1 adventure. Gordon Freeman, while entering into the portal to accept G-Man proposition, is caught by another teleporter used by scientists blocked in the Black Mesa complex to escape from here. Gordon and the scientists could escape and advise the whole World about the Xen invasion and the massacre made by the G-Man's soldiers.
All the authors of this massacre have been caught, except one... The G-Man successfully escaped from Black Mesa and vanished. Nobody knows where he is.
Freeman, considered as an hero for killing Nihilanth, is now taking deserved holidays on a luxurious yacht in the Pacific. Then a big storm stroked him, damaging the boat... Gordon wake up on an unknown island... Is he alone here ? It's yours to discover...

Development

The development is currently stopped. I don't know if I will restart it later but I hope I will, like you :) You can play the demos, I suggest you try the first then the second, to see the differences with the stock engine and the Spirit of HL engine.

Hello everybody,
Just a news to formalize the closure of Far Crab. Maybe it will be revived one day, but not with code modifications (just a basic HL1 adventure). I loved working on this mod, but for now I don't have so much time for that.
Thanks for your support, I hope you enjoyed the demos so far !

On the beach, there is no sky-box, apperently; I'm getting the striped
patterns of color you see when you're outside a map.
It also does when you go through the waterfalls and into the first cave.

Is there any way to display the text on-screen in english instead of
french ? It would help for mod story... Half-Life 2 lets you change it,
but nothing in settings for Half-Life does.
Thanks...

I seem to remember seeing text files over the years, and you
could switch german for french, english for french. I'll check
that with this and other HL1 mods I have.

Turns out the subtitles are in a file in the main directory
called 'Titles.txt, and they're in French, to no surprise.
You would just have to have someone translate the french into
english,and replace the french sentences with the english ones.
