Hello everyone, first of all, I wanna thank all of our supporters for keeping us going and providing all your positive feedback. I know we had a rough time in the last news update, and there was a lot of controversy over the videos we posted, but don't worry, we've got everything cleared up and explained.
The first update for today is, I've updated the forum, website, YouTube channel, and ModDB pages. I think the updates will make everything a little easier and clearer, because we all know how important that is.
The second update is that I have fully patched and configured an installer program for the old alpha(the version from the videos). I've got it uploaded and all you need to do is download it, open up the ZIP file I put it in, read the install file I also worked up, and there you go, you can play the old developer build of Unit 648: First Encounter. All you need to have installed and ran once is Half-Life 2. If there are any bugs, or you have suggestions, please post in the forum, and me or the other staff members will address your issues immediately. Do note that it is buggy and has issues, but for the most part, there shouldn't be too many problems.
To download, visit our downloads page for the link.
PLEASE: Don't post any bugs that are in the bug list in the install log. Also, Counter Strike: Source and Half-Life 2: Deathmatch will install a VERY small portion of files, so don't be alarmed, the old alpha is playable if you remove them.
Also, I know there was a lot of controversy over the videos that threw our news post into a war zone, so I would like to clarify all of this right now, so there are no negative comments, please. The old alpha was configured heavily from SMOD: Redux for testing purposes only. That is not the case for the newer builds of the mod. This playable alpha, the one that is now patched and available for download, is the only actual build we use of SMOD. NONE of the fonts, content, or anything else will be in later builds. We have entirely progressed beyond using SMOD for testing our mod, so please, don't be alarmed.
The third update is that I am trying to advertise our company and Unit 648: First Encounter a lot more. I have submitted our old beta to ModPlay, and I have also applied to join the SteaMania network. Hopefully they agree, and we could form some sort of alliance that could benefit us both. Please, tell your friends about us, it would be greatly appreciated.
Well, thats all for now. I hope you enjoyed this update, and I'll talk to you guys soon. Thanks!
