Half-Life 2 : MMod - Patch 1.3 Release!

Half-Life 2 : MMod - Patch 1.3 Release!

It's been almost a year since first release, time sure flies by fast.

In this jolly spooky holiday season, I'm happy to bring Half-Life 2 : MMod 1.3 under your Christmas tree pumpkin?, Uhh, anyway, I'm here to announce first and last big patch for Half-Life 2 : MMod V1, yes, you heard me right, Half-Life 2 : MMod V2 will be a thing in a distant future, hopefully not after 9 years again.

Before we go into details, I'd like to thank everyone, and I mean EVERYONE who made any sort of content for MMod V1, be it a video, awesome weapon reskin, brand new custom weapon or even a stream, you guys conquered my heart, as a mod maker this is the highest level of gratitude I could ever get. When your work inspires someone to make something for their creation, that is something I strive for every time I sit down and spend hours upon hours, sometime even years creating things for people to enjoy. I'd also want to thank Fooltaurus, KrIsCrEeP and sgor00 for sticking with me for so long ( and willing to continue ) despite all my bullshit and horrific schedules. From the bottom of my heart - Thank You.

I also want to thank Agent Agrimar a little bit more personally now. He contacted me, by himself, after the initial release, trying to save the sinking ship that HL2MMod v1.0 was, he came through with a life saving coding help and suggestions that helped MMod support several games at once, without having to spawn several gigabytes of cloned files. Basically his "content mounting system", as I like to call it, saved the day right when I needed it most. I REALLY want you to check out his personal project, Half-Life 2 : Plus, which aims to modify the usual Half-Life 2 experience with small additions, tweaks, and changes to make it not too different, not too similar. His project also adds unique "Suitless Mode" which allows player to complete the entire game without your trusty HEV suit. I'd also want to give a shout out to Team Fortress 2 : Classic , which Agent Agrimar is a part of, he's an extremely talented coder and truly his work deserves a recognition. Also, if you're one of them talented source engine folks, he is seeking for some help from modelling and texturing front ( proper suitless hand models, model fixes and what not ), please contact him either through his mod page, or through his profile directly, thank you!

Well, now it's the time for the v1.3 itself! The new version of Half-Life 2 MMod bring new set of features to the games, as well as performance and compatibility enhancements. Here is much more detailed list of what's new and what has been changed :

I am fairly certain that I have forgotten something, so one way to check what's new and changed is to play mod yourself c:

I like this mod, but the one thing that still irks me and probably many other players is that when Combine Soldiers use the grenade launcher for the SMG is that sometimes you can't tell when they're gonna fire it or not.

Would really appreciate that when the next update releases that we get a new animation for when Combine Soldiers use the SMG alt-fire cause the Hgrunts in Black Mesa, namely the Commanders(Beret Grunts) have this animation when they are about to use SMG grenades.

Just a thought.

And please, PLEASE give the Rebels the ability to use melee attacks and grenades when fighting against Combine Soldiers, and maybe the ability to use the altfire for the weapons they use as well. Entropy Zero 2 has this for Rebel NPCs, so why shouldn't Mmod?

This is a long shot, but has anyone got this to work on Steam Deck?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

Yes, it works really well, you just have to set the proton version to 7.0 both on MMOD HL2 and normal HL2. Do the same if you wish to play HL2_Update, EP1, EP2, etc.

Then you can use a plugin to change the artwork so that it looks well in your library :)

I don't have a steam deck anymore, but I was playing MMOD around a month ago.

Did you have to download any kind of dependencies or anything? I heard you have to download Source Single-player SDK 2013 or something?
