2011 release renamed to: G STRING BETA. The Dec. 19 2011 release is now referred to as a beta release- read the mod's "news" to see why. Download the beta in the mod's "downloads" section.

Why not take the latest build, cut most of content, and share it instead? A lot of people may consider the beta demo representative of final version even if you put a massive disclaimer saying its not.

Releasing something so close to the version going on Steam soon is not a good idea.

This is different enough from the beta to warrant another download/playthrough but also different enough from the final version so as not to make things messy on Steam.

I know people tend to skip disclaimers but the first paragraph in the description explains things pretty well hopefully...

Disagree, what Tleno said makes all sense. It won't be "so close to Steam release". It would be "15% preview of what's in Steam release".

'Cause I'm even asking myself "should I bother with this 2013 demo, it'll probably be very alike to 2011", I get the features are right there to the right of my post -> but they're kind of... not a lot considering overall scale.

If this is the same as the 2013 release then all of you should know that although there are new locations but there are also a lot of maps missing compared to "beta"!

So you should see this not a refined beta but a different beta altogether!

Any ideas? I run Firefox.

Hate to say it, but I think this will confuse some people. A very short demo probably would have been a better idea imo.

Description

G STRING - DAY ONE

Moddb.com

This is NOT the final release and it is NOT indicative of how the final release will look/play. This is just a slightly more polished version of the BETA that includes a few extra concepts such as the air refinery and the spaceport. If you want to see where all this started check out the original 2011 release:
Moddb.com

Extract G_String_Day_One.rar to your steam\steamapps\sourcemods folder and restart Steam. It will NOT overwrite the G String BETA or the upcoming final "G String" release. It will extract into a new folder called "GstringV2".

In 2013 this was a privately tested version of the G-String project. Copyrighted music and old intro has been removed. YouTube videos CAN be made of this release without altering any of the files. Playing this will NOT SPOIL the final release as this was made before the project was overhauled.

G STRING - DAY ONE FEATURES

⦁ Some new post processing shaders.
⦁ Early new menu design.
⦁ Lens flares.
⦁ Multiple overlays.
⦁ You can toggle the cinematic bars and grain/custom FX.
⦁ Rudimentary subtitles.
⦁ A few next textures and maps- (40 maps total.)
⦁ Beta maps polished until the red light district fights- (soon after the crater).
⦁ Early versions of the Murdock Air Refinery and Kennedy Spaceport.
⦁ A few new characters added like Riley Verge.
⦁ A few new sound/dialog/music files.

At this point the decision to overhaul the project was not yet made so:

⦁ No self awareness model.
⦁ No gibbing.
⦁ No DOF.
⦁ No special key for the pyrokinesis (works same as BETA).
⦁ No new HUD.
⦁ No night-vision.
⦁ Interplanetary Trade Center twin towers are seen but not explored.
⦁ No space fights.
⦁ No new props.
⦁ No particles.
⦁ No final story.
