Hello mates.

I'll try to explain what I've been doing and what has been completed until this day, then give important news about the project.

I mainly worked on two things:

  1. New UI
  2. New Audio System

The UI is almost done. You can check out the latest version of the current branch.


The OpenAL-based audio system is also nearly done. The music is working, audio is fine.

The 3D audio is fully functional and we can use WAV, MP3, FLAC, OGG Vorbis and OGG Opus formats. Also, lazy preaching is supported.

Things that aren't finished and need work to do on the audio system are:

  1. Post Processing Effects
  2. Sentence System

The sentence system needs a rewrite. It is limited and not very complimentary. It should be rewritten just like the material system, with proper ' #include "filename" ' support

This is the progress so far.

You can check the UI changes in the main branch and the audio changes in the particular audio branch.

But I've got some unfortunate news.

Because of personal, professional and educational issues; I've got to pause working on this project indefinitely.

In this period, I'll try to maintain pull requests. I'll also try to finish the UI things with the Audio system and release an official build but spare time is not very generous.

In conclusion, for an unknown period of time, I will not be working on this project.

I'm still ambitious about this project. So don't worry, I won't abandon it. But I need to shift my focus to other things for now.

Until I see you lads again, have a great day.

I used translation service, so I may be wrong but I think you're asking about the flag.

The flag here is a mixed flag.
Half of it is the old flag of the New Mexico state, which is the place where the Black Mesa is.
The other half is the Scotland flag, which is the main character's homeland.

It's one of those mods where it doesn't look professionally made but made with a soul. Looking forward to it.

The mod's difference is within its story and gameplay actually. Even though it's not much different, it's not the same either.

Thanks for your reply!
