-=Half-Life NOIR pack v1.0=- About: replaces all the textures and models to give the game a noir feeling. unfortunately all the colors of all lights are semi hardcoded/compiled into each hl maps wich makes it very hard to replace the colors. General install instructions 1. Grab the latest FWGS/xash3d release and extract it. 2. Copy the valve folder from your steam or retail copy of half-life into the xash folder. 2a. Backup this dir if you want to revert to the normal textures again. 3. Unpack this archive to your xash3d folder and overwrite files when prompted. 4. launch Xash3d and choose Half-Life Noir under custom game or create a shortcut to xash_vc.exe with a "-game hl_bw" switch Notice : this could work on the Steam but it is untested. Tools used : Photoshop, Wally 1.55b, Wad2bmp, Jed's Half-Life Model Viewer, Goldsrc Mdldecompiler, Studiomdl, zhlt ripent, fimg

I feel bad for the creator. Editing every single texture, including models is very time consuming but the same outcome can be achieved by simply changing monitor settings like rockknight says.

This mod is pointless, you can play Half-Life "Noir style" by simply adjusting your monitor settings, lower the saturation level to 0 and done
With some monitors you can even lower the saturation to every color except for red, turning the color palette comic-like

I think you're going to need something more than just changing the colours to grey if you want to achieve a truly noir feeling
