In Rebellion, you play as Mandella, colonel in the Confederation, a powerful military force. At the beginning, you explore the mothership as you’re asked by admiral Spade to attend your briefing. You’ll discover that you’re part of the first attack wave sent to storm Tor29, a little colony lost in the Nephele system.Accompanied by your best friend, major Threepwood, you’ll face an oddly weak resistance. Why does the Confederation unleash its wrath on a colony that is clearly of no match ? What hides behind this conflict driven by doubtful justifications ? These obscure reasons are not to please you and Threepwood.Will you carry on following blindly an authority fouled by power and arrogance ? Or will you break your former links and embrace a cause that seems fairer to you, however desperate it may be?Maybe these are favourable times for… Rebellion.

When I try to start the game, it says "Can't find background image 'materials/console/menu_bg_widescreen.vtf'".

I have discovered the problem with this file... It wouldn't start up... I had found something strange... I have noted in other mods... They had SteamAppId 220
so I tried it... It worked!!!

Change this SteamAppId line from 215 to 220... It should work...

theres more to it than that. Just google: Fixes for HL2 mods broken by the SteamPipe update.

Hi, I seem to be facing a problem, 1, the admiral will not talk to me, the character at the room before the main hall won't either, when I try to get into the first mission, all there is is the dropship making the yell meaning he should have blown up, all there is, is the dropship hovering in one location. Help?
My OS is Vista, I checked the site and it does not support it? Is this the reason?

I suffer the same issue, I have windows 7 home premium 64-bit, I have tried one other mod and it worked fine. I do not know if it is related but there is a Barney in the airlock that contains the loading screen between the crew quarters and the main area.
