XDM is an Unreal Tournament-style Half-Life modification.
Also featuring old and new weapons, new high-quality maps, new hi-def models, flexible network code*, lots of special effects with no hi-end hardware requirements. XDM offers full set of customization options: HUD/GUI colours, chat, team names and colours, weapon slots, translatable string. All original Half-Life maps, models and sprites are compatible with this mod, even some single-player mods like Timeline 2: Iced Earth (which don't have teir own DLLs) or even Arctic Incident (now included since v.3038) are playable. Improved entity management system allows massive online matches (32 players) with tons of weapons, boxes, rockets, monsters, explosions and other stuff flying around. The mod includes optional botmatch mode with up to 31 angry HPB bots (experimental).
Don't underestimate the power of GoldSource!
This mod has been developing since 2000 (first public testing was in 2001) and lives even now!! :)
XHL/XDM is a great modding platform (like SoHL), not only for singleplayer, but for all game types. Check out videos to see some of the features.

What is never enough? Chicks, bucks, FPS? Umm, no. Testing of course!
Test it on Linux, they said. Use the force, they said. So I did. Terrible, terrible it is! But it's WINE :D
Ok, Linux by itself is not guilty, probably. And also I didn't run HL/XDM natively. The main thing is - old APU. I don't have any other, sorry :D
Now, some good news: LLAPb (don't read that in latin) made a huge attempt in porting z-bots (cs-bots?) to HL/XDM. And they work! To some extent. Well, they move, that is. And shoot. And lag. They eat so much CPU that oughtta be careful to not to burn your house down. Most likely, the problem lies within navigation algorithm, but it's not easy to track down, provided it's completely new foreign code all around. Also, I made some minor fixes and a little addition: now model/character.txt may specify custom voice pitch so you don't have to duplicate voice packs just for that.
See ya! I hope you learned something.
