SCENARIO

In "Get a Life" you embody Alexander Zemlinsky, a subway technician suffering from leukaemia.
Alex is not, unlike the protagonists in most games, an invincible super-soldier. But you wouldn't call him normal either, because there is something in his past that connects him with the events that are about to happen in the course of the story (we want to keep the suspense, so nothing more on that...). "Get a Life" will feature different environment settings presented in more than 24 maps, all of them connected to the scenario of the mod. GaL will offer about 11 hours of pure gameplay pleasure.

FEATURES

  • GaL will run on the latest version of the Source Engine, so that means you'll see HDR and the enhanced shadow system (as seen in HL2: Episode 1) in "Get a Life" as well
  • To give the player the best gaming experience possible, GaL will offer a custom HUD, an innovative healing system with several damage zones, drugs that will trigger a "bullet-time" effect, upgradeable weapons and enhanced enemy AI
  • About 11 hours of gameplay
  • 24 maps with varied environments
  • 61 characters
  • 13 weapons

For more information visit the official "Get a Life" website and the french/english forums.

Hi everyone !

You were a lot to download Get A Life, and we hope you enjoyed it.

But
some people complains about the difficulty of the mod and some bugs.
Even if the beta-tests helps to reduce the number of bugs, when a mod
is released there are often surprises, and GAL was no exception to the
rule.

We thought about it, and today we' re releasing patch that brings two modifications :

-For those who finds the mod to hard, they can totally desactivate the bleeding system by a simple manipulation. Clic here to see the illustration
-Correction of script bugs, abnormal deaths, bleeding or abnormal vision during the
first chapter and correction of certain bugs during the second chapter

Also
some people suffer from crashes that we cannot solve, this problems
happens in lots of mods currently. It is because of the Source SDK base
from the new steam version (we advise you to disable it) or from the
soundcache.

For those who have the new version of steam, while we are waiting for a patch, use these tips to play :
-Launch the mod
-In the graphic options, choose "windowed mod"
-Launch the first map
-When the map's loaded, choose "full screen mod" in your graphid options menu.

Man coming back to this mod after all these years is so nostalgic. Played it back in '08, around the time it came out. Think it was on moddb featured for half life 2 mods.

Btw, if anyone's trying to get this to work, it uses source sdk base 2006. Just add "Game sourcetest" under "SearchPaths" in "gameinfo.txt". Should work then no problem. I don't think the steampipe update affected this mod too much, since it never used half life 2, or its episodes' assets, and I found the source sdk base mods to work fine even with that update.

If you are having issues, you can go to the source sdk base directory, and extract the vpks in the vpk directory. They should be 206, 207, 208, 212, and 215. Those stand for materials, models, sounds, engine, and source sdk base 2006, respectively.

Edit: Forgot to mention, you can google gcfscape to extract vpks, and the older gcfs.

This Mod could definitely do with a redux/remake/remaster.
