Half-Life: Decay is an add-on included in the PlayStation 2 port of the first-person shooter computer game Half-Life, developed by Gearbox Software and published in October of 2001, now being remade by independend Ukrainian developers for PC with the help of other european developers/fans.

Our team is working on straight port of this game to PC! "Decay PC"'s active development began in mid-October of 2005 and release is scheduled to be somewhere in Summer of 2008.

Like Gearbox's other expansion packs Opposing Force and Blue Shift, Decay returns to the setting and timeline of the original story, but with different player characters: two female colleagues of Gordon Freeman, Dr. Gina Cross and Dr. Colette Green, who both take part in the Anomalous Materials laboratory experiment - they make preparations for the experiment under the Test Chamber such as monitoring Anti-Mass spectrometer and delivering anomalous materials to Dr. Freeman. When disaster happens both women together with their collegues Dr. Rosenberg and Dr. Keller try to save personell of the facility and reverse the resonance cascade to seal the dimensional rift.

For more information please visit official site of the project.

Non-public beta version of the project was realesed dec. 31, 2007

How to play Decay in singleplayer?

You can play it in singleplayer, but you will have to manually switch between the protagonists with "g". That means you will have to "park" occasionally one woman, switch to the other woman, walk the same way and possibly press some switch etc. It's cumbersome, but possible. Also make sure you don't choose "New game" because then you'll only have one protagonist. Start a new LAN game and load up the first level manually (dy_accident1). Since it's technically multiplayer, you will also be unable to save mid-game. You will have to finish the level, after which the mod will unlock the next level, which you then can choose as the next multiplayer map. You can apparently circumvent this by renaming a locked map to one that is already unlocked.

While its a very good mod, some things are worse than the PS2 version, incluiding the lack of split screen, the way to choose levels or all the bugs, also the AI for the singleplayer mode is worst! I play the PS2 version and the bot shoots perfectly, and the weapon of preference is the weapon you left the bot when you change the character. Here always switch to the crowbar and when the bot changes the weapon aims with poor accuracy, and the crowbar doesnt use.... Also i would like a optional mod for the bot that actually moves....

Can I somehow unlock the Maps without playing them? I now found a Friend who is willing to play this with me but the game says that my current chapter is locked for him.

The current version of this port still kinda holds up to this day with its amazing brush work when comparing to the original PS2!
Whoever this Port didn't aged too well due to some issues when compared to the original PS2 conterpart and maybe recent Steam updates for the goldsrc engine during the last few years.
To be honest this PC Port mod is unplayable when it comes to crashes. The mod crashes sometimes when you are using the Health or Hev Charging Stations (i believe it does when the player moves while using them) And it even crashes sometimes when you try to talk to Rosenberg while he is doing a scripted sequence.
Hopefully someone can do a brand new and updated port of Half-Life: Decay to PC and maybe using Triang3l's tools to port the PS2 maps! Aka this: Github.com

The further you go in the mod, the better it becomes. It begins with simple missions and possibly some people would stop playing at the end of chapter 2 or 3. After that, not only the gameplay becomes exciting but the storyline is more interesting (although a reverse resonance cascade doesn't sound very creative). Maybe the most interesting thing about this is how it cross plots with HL Blue Shift and HL Opposing Force. Also it becomes more difficult as you get closer to the end. The end let much…
