This mod brings original PC Half-Life look and feel to the PS2 port.
Menus, models and sprites are modded with my PS2 HL Tools (link).
Maps are untouched for now.

Beta release

News

It's been a while sice the last update.

Most of that time I spent on finding out what was causing texture corruption and crashes. I tried out everything and I still can't determine source of the problem. I only found out that some models can cause semi-random crashes after recompilation. So I guess that it is the obstacle that I can't overcome in near future so for now I will release beta version of PC Edition mod. There would be two versions of that: full and stable.
- In full version all models are recompiled: it provides proper autoaim and model textures with more reasonable sizes. So performance is slightly better and there is less texture corruption but it crashes on loading screen every 2-3 chapters.
- Stable version has untouched monsters and weapons models so auto-aim is broken and texture corruption is more severe.

Beta release changes list:
- Finally found out what was breaking music on PS2 and fixed it.
- Erased little man sprite from HUD.
- New auto-aim lock sprite. I tried it to make it less annoying and to look like HL2 side bars.
- Fixed auto-aim on all monsters (full beta version only).
- Recompiled all models to downsample textures so they are have more reasonable sizes (full beta version only).
- Replaced first Hazard course map with converted from PC map (converted with BS2PC).
- Replaced ugly dithered skyboxes with a little bit less ugly non-dithered ones.

Comparison of dithered and non-dithered skebox textures.

- Created new models for health stations, hev chargers and retinal scanners so they look like ones in PC version.

New models for scanner and chargers.

- Created new save game pictures. New save pictures are mostly based on Half-life: Source chapter icons.

- Modified crosshairs so they should be more visible now.

New crosshairs.


Known issues:
- Crashes every 2-3 chapters on full version.
- Texture corruption (example on picture below).

I had no idea modding was even possible on the PS2 version. Big ups to you for doing this

Thanks for support.
My PS2 HL tools and Triang3l's BS2PC are in free access on GitHub so it is not only possible to mod PS2 version now, but everyone can try to convert their favorite mods.

I guess not many people care nowadays about obscure port of 20 year old game.
