------Map Instructions-----------------------------------------------

Install by extracting this archive with use folder names checked into
your Half-Life directory. It may only work with HL or higher.

Start Half-Life, select "Custom Game" and activate "Xen-Warrior" then
start a new game. Or select "Xen-Course" for a simple training first.

If you run Half-Life from Steam, after extracting this archive inside
the game folder, restart Steam, and you will see a Xen-Warrior entry.

------Additional Info------------------------------------------------

Most of these infos are also provided during the Xen-Course training!
Gain health and armor by feeding on dead enemies. Weapons slot one is
a close range attack, weapons slot four is the usual hornetgun. While
using it, only close contact to the target or secondary fire mode can
destroy or move things. Parasitic Xen animals are still hostile, also
angry allies. Do you remember where you saw the last level before ;)?
Xen lifeforms show a red aura, Earth lifeforms a green one, others...


Authors MAY use this mod as a base to build additional mods.
(I couldn't get explicit permission from Radioactive Software because
their page is gone and I couldn't contact any of them, but it doesn't
say contrary in the textfiles of Half-Life: Chronicles: Episode One.)

You need to switch to the original hornetgun location in the selection menu.

Here is some Xen Warrior Walkthrough, we are Alien Grunt!

Not sure if the game crashed on Xash or Steam but Xash works fine for me and it's completely playable, depending on build version.

Also, at the end.. Alien Grunt killed Gordon Freeman and taken from Half-Life universe haha.

Will you make a HD version of the v_crowbar model?

Do you mean the hornet gun used instead of the crowbar? You could probably copy a HD version of it over and rename it.

The mod sucks. All maps are stolen from half-life echoes. Also it is very short.
But hte cool thing, is that you have allies, but you can`t comand them.

At first I was confused about the comparison of my small old mod with modern day mega mod Echoes because of course mine is much older and Echoes didn't copy any maps from me either. But then I encountered the Xen grunt using the same kind of aura effects that I used and this might have been what triggered the comment. So maybe Echoes took that idea from me, but I assume that aura was well known to many modders in the old days.
