Half-Life 2 Classic is a Half-Life 1 mod that aims to recreate the entirety of Half-Life 2.

Why? Mainly, just for fun, but also because a lot of people like how the goldsrc engine feels, or enjoy the gameplay or Half-Life more than Half-Life 2. It's also a way to see what Half-Life 2 could have looked like in the limits of Goldsrc, if valve never developed the Source engine.

If you want to help out, please apply here. We're in need of texture artists and programmers.

After over a year since our first playable demo, we’re proud to say that the entirety of Ravenholm is now available to download and play.

Ravenholm Demo


As we’ve stated in previous updates, we’ve been focusing on remaking models and assets from scratch within the limits of goldsrc. With a lot more time, people, and work going into the mod now, we hope you’ll agree that the new demo is a lot better than our first one.

Ravenholm

We’ve already shown the gravity gun and a few work-in-progress maps, but here are some things we haven’t shown in our previous updates:

New Grigori model:


New NPCS:

Poison Zombie


Fast Zombie


Poison Headcrab


Fast Headcrab


Other additions:

  • New texture for normal zombies, making them wear citizen clothes instead of scientist ones
  • Zombies can be cut in half with sharp objects
  • New sounds for weapons, footsteps, and more
  • New models/textures for weapons in the low-poly style of Half-Life 1
  • New “advanced” options to toggle weapon sway and change weapon fov (this will probably be used for more stuff later on)

Keep in mind, there are likely going to be bugs, despite our attempts at getting everything working well. We’re doing things with goldsrc that it was never meant to do, and things are bound to break. If you find an issue let us know and we’ll try to get it fixed asap. Otherwise, have fun playing a 14-year-old game in a 20-year-old engine!

Remove the "client.dll" file from the mod that shows you in that path and you'll see how it's fixed.

This demo will not work with the no steam version of half-life

To be honest it works both with WON version (use console to load maps) and with non-steam version. But it was developed for steam version.
