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!! :)

«In the end, I just wanted to make Half-Life better.» - ~X~
About two years have passed since last release (v22.214.171.124) and, honestly, it wasn't easy time for me, as the only developer, programmer, artist, script writer, manager, hoster and tech support. Ok, there were about two and a half active game testers that helped a bit :) But otherwise, we were tight in resources at our disposal. But XDM survived!
So, many wondered, where's the version 3039? Well, while it was, in fact, made, it was never released to public outside group of testers. And that test showed that much had to be done! So, here we are, with bumped version - 126.96.36.199. And you, actually, could have already downloaded it. But where? Don't go to downloads section...
And, a few days ago I've finally released:
And in this release of HLDM GOLD (tm) map-pack you can actually find XDM 3040 as a bonus. :)
Stand-alone version will probably be released, sooner or later...
Basically, there are tens of new features, some for developers, some for gamers, about hundred of fixes, lots of visual improvements like more detailed maps, smoother models, etc., etc.
Some notable changes include:
Scared already? Don't be! Not only XDM is proudly Open-Source, it is now Forced-Source Software! This means you cannot obtain it without sources. :)
Traditionally, you are required to solve a puzzle to get to it. Hint: it's much easier this time and does not require playing.
I don't know and can't promise to continue working on XDM, but, hey - there are still bugs to be fixed! ;)
Now arriving a-a-a-at....
PS: thanks to Ghoul-bb for uploading these videos!
XDM3038 was successfully released less than a month ago. Now, it is time to confirm its OpenSource status: sources are being released into the wild!
