Tired of playing the same old Half-Life you've been playing since 1998? Ever thought the prototypes of Half-Life were interesting and/or unique? Well, Half-Life: Absolute Zero is the mod for you.
Half-Life E3 1998/1997 first breath of air since 2011, the original build from 2010. Half-Life E3 1998/1997 is a recreation of the earlier builds of Half-Life 1, but this build isn't quite finished, it features a few map remakes, a few test maps, Day One, and Uplink.
It's been 5 years??? Holy shit! It feels like it was yesterday that I started this piece of shit mod. Time flys when you force your self to forget about various things.
Actually, I'm impressed this build still exists! Magic Nipples found it laying around in his Mediafire account like, less than a year ago (infact, I think it was like Spring of this year).
So... Why am I releasing this 5 years after it started? Well, honestly I 'unno either, probably to show how shit this mod was ages ago and to get a laugh.
To convert to E3 97, just drag the files from "1997 Conversion" and put it in the E398 mod folder.
Obviously, not a lot of the files remained, a good chunk of the files were lost due to me reinstalling or the fact the computer Magic Nipple's used durring development died and all files were corrupted.
Infact, the 1997 code is the original HL97 (E397) code, while the 98 code is just Preliminary Findings... Which was E3 98 in a sense anyway...
So, here are the credits to the best that I can state them.
Magic Nipples (AMD889) - Coding, and I think a few test maps.
Theuaredead` - Horrible textures and model edits.
ZedMarine (ThePhoenix1351) - Maps (most of his maps were lost to time if I recall) and that nasty MP5 re-skin in the 1997 part
X-LAyer2 - Maps
Joebama - Shotgun (If I recall correctly...)
RangerC - Pistol Reload Animation
Zelaroth - the GOD AWFUL beta pack that so many fucking beta mods use.
Barnz - I think he did the original Barney vest texture...
1PlayerD - HLBR Archive, shame you basically went insane... Well, became a giant asshole with major trust issues that wants to fuck with other people.
and various others that I can't credit since their credit rights have been long lost.
Things I forgot to state in the readme:
there are a few hidden maps mixed in with the batch, these maps are:
