Hello again everyone.

This has all been so overwhelming, the reaction to my work has much more incredible than I could ever have anticipated.

My intention was to make something that would reflect what Half-Life meant to me - the horror, the comedy, the action, and the realism of the world around you. Half-Life and it's many community made mods have stuck with me my entire life since I was young and changed the way I looked at games. A lot of the feedback from you all so far seems to show that I might have made some other people remember the same feelings Half-Life brought us when it was first released.

You are all brilliant. All the feedback, videos, reviews, comments have all meant the world to me. Thank you. I dabbled in Half-Life level editing when I was a teenager (sometime around 2000/2001), and never went back to it, but I decided to try my hand at making something worthwhile to release, around five years ago - perhaps spurred on by a lack of Episode 3. A lot has happened in this time - and releasing this marks the end of a long journey for me. The reception I have received has definitely made it all worth while.

I have just released v1.2 - which I hope should fix the last few crashes. A couple of minor bugs may remain, but I no longer have any real time to spend on this aside from fixing issues that prevent it from working - but please do not hesitate to send any issues to me.

On a personal note - I have something to ask. A few months ago, I became a father to the most wonderful little boy in the world. However, when he was born, we found out moments later he had an un-diagnosed heart condition which meant he would not live without immediate open heart surgery. For my wife and I, this was the hardest and most difficult time of our lives, but thanks to the incredible team at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow - he has made a full recovery after surgery and is expected to lead a normal healthy life. There is nothing that can prepare you for this kind of situation, and not everyone is as fortunate as we were.

I would like to ask - if you enjoyed my work and have the means or the inclination - please make a donation to the Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity to support these wonderful people who saved my son's life. Donations will help save, help and enrich the lives of other children.

Thank you, James

This mod was absolutely incredible! It's on the level of quality of an expansion pack from Gearbox. Thank you so much for this mod!

Fantastic mod, I do hope you consider officially releasing this via Steam as it certainly would get so much more exposure there. I enjoyed this so much that I even added it to my 'GoldSrc Engine Games on Steam' list under the 'Not available on Steam but should be' section, which I reserve for only the best mods.

Seriously though, this is some seriously good work you've done here. Get it on Steam if possible. I'll happily buy any DLC's to tether it. :)

Bring it to steam. This mod deserves more exposure (and some sort of DLC to keep the mod in library, like soundtrack or skin for something, because I really want to have it in my steam library).

I highly doubt it unless things get tweak down for a port.

The Half Life 1 I have is downloaded from Steam, but the graphics are reasonably HD. I have loaded Echoes from the zip file and the folder and files are in the Half Life folder, but it does not appear in my Steam Games Library. How do I tell which version of HL 1 I have?

Have you tried restarting steam? It takes a restart before a mod appears in your steam library.

A modern day masterpiece and a mod of the year. Thank you for letting us play through your vision of Black Mesa incident through a different perspective. Perfectly crafted, directed and executed, seeing that someone utilizes the engine to this extent just warms my heart and reminds me of how truly awesome half-life community is. It was a huge, indescribable pleasure to play through this, and we're all as a community can't thank you enough for all your effort and time you put into this awesome project…
