Half-Rats: Parasomnia


When the counter hits zero, it's yours, my friends! And so concludes over a year of non-stop work. This is the sequel to "A Fever Dream". It's rather unceremonious, really. I thought I'd have a lot more to say when this day came. But maybe I don't need to? So, I'll just let the game speak for itself!

Heath Games Presents: "Half-Rats: Parasomnia".

This means that Half-Rats: Parasomnia will be available to download in 2 hours and 30 minutes at the time I'm writing this ^^

Possible high risk of a "Day One" patch that will be required to play the game, more details on that when the countdown reaches 0.

Ok, i dont remember exactly the process to install the mod, but it's something like this?

1 Have Steam

2 Have Half Life

3 Put the mod in the folder steamapps, then in the folder of half life

Am I wrong? Or I forget something? Please let me know, because last year I have a big time installing A fever dream in midnight lol.

The mod has some sort of a error message when I run it. It says "could not load library" followed by steamapps/common/half-life/hrp/cl_dlls/clinet.dll, pressing ok shuts the mod off.

Have I exctracted it wrong?

Just download again and you're all set! But if you don't want to do that, just put the client.dll in the cl_dll folder of HRP.

Ok this is what I did, before the problem.
I extract Parasomnia in a diferent folder from steam, then I choose all the content from Parasomnia and put in the valve folder inside Half Life, the client.dll is in the cl.dll folder, but its still appearing the text that "could not load the library"
What I did wrong? Please let me know

Welp, it's gotta' be in it's own folder. if you put it in valve, you might as well uninstall half-life, lol.

Mr Rats I have a problem: when I pick the backpack in both training and the first chapter the mod crash and then a text appear, that says:

"SV_StarSound:volume=428"

Help me please, let me know.

Too many ambient sounds on a map. Try to reduce your volume settings in the game.

mmmm, ok thanks, if this dont happen, I have to erase some sound from de sounds folder?

In fact, it looks like same happens to me and reducing the volume doesn't help. Deleting the sounds is probably not a good decision. The problem is in map settings. I'd better play the game with Xash3D without such stupid problems, but developers made the mod only SteamPipe Half-Life compatible. OK, let's wait for another patch.

We never had a crash related about sounds. You can try to type the following commands in the console to see if it changes anything:

volume 0.1
MP3Volume 0.25
suitvolume 0.25

If it doesn't work, either you are using a weird version of HL1 or your HL1 installation may be corrupted.

As for Xash3D and WON : unlike the "Demo update", I didn't had the time to port the whole HR:P code to a 2.3 SDK and I still don't have the time nowadays. 1 version of the source code and 2 platforms to handle (Win32/Linux) is more than enough for myself.

Once we're done with Parasomnia, the source code will be there ( Github.com ), after that, HL1 modders will be free to do whatever they want with it (as long as we get credited and the license are respected).

UPDATE : In the worst case scenario, move or delete the ambient sounds, you shouldn't get any error/crash (just a warning in the console about a missing file)

Ok I dont mind waiting for a patch, Mr Rats did a great Job, we can wait for the subtitles and somethig relating with the sounds. Keep going.

I can try to investigate about the sound issue you have but I can't promise that I can fix this by my own.

As I said in the main page, we'll fix that in version 1.1. Also, it would be helpful if you'd post bugs and other problems in our forum Moddb.com or in Github Github.com .

Thanks for playing Parasomnia ;) .

It would be nice if someone did that, but it would also be prudent to wait for the 1.1 patch. For now, just visit our forum here Moddb.com with any questions you may have, regarding solutions and walkthroughs.

Thanks for playing our mod ;) .
