How to Install
Place 'taslife' folder in your Half-Life directrory, then restart steam
SlowMode: Slow game down
FrameMode: Frame advance on user request
Laser Pointer: While slowed or stoped, this pointer will take the guess work out of where your view will end up next frame.
Stats Menu: Important heads up info, usfull to the speed runner will be displayed in here
While slowing or stopping frames, any action that needs to be held will not work.
Eg: Ducking, Gauss charge, egon fire, cooking nades ect
What its doing is pressing and releasing each frame, this side effect allows bunnyhoping
Finding if the game is paused or not is done by reading a specific part of memory in hw.dll
hw.dll is loaded if running in ogl/d3d. Running in software loads sw.dll not hw.dll. This will not work correctly in software mode.
The address is hardcoded so different versions might break this. Works with the most updated steam version.
