    Other than a few minor annoyances like the head crabs glitching out non-stop and the loading screen every 10 steps its a fantastic mod.

    I hate you, and your insanely fast internet. :3eyes:

    Why? Well.... I was just so happy with my recent connection upgrade where I now have a 30/5mbit connection. Then you come along and :banana:

    LoL. I hope Google brings their giga-band internet to SoCal.

    Man they really went the whole way.
    I mean the mod is filled with ambient sounds, more than the original if i remember correctly.
    And the crossbow! Anyone noticed that on the scope you actually see what is infront of it instead of just a reflection from an environment map?

    So far so good, the flares at the start are a bit off, why would a facility that is located deep underground have flares, I dunno but then I suppose they are just as logical as a crow bar. Speaking of which the crow bar just doesn't feel right, it's like you barely swing it, really kinda weird.

    The NPCs timing is a bit off, by that I mean you walk past a person and your half way down the corridor before they talk to you, you walk in to a room, look at the NPC then turn round and walk away and then they start talking and finally I some how managed to get stuck in a door.

    It's the one just after the explosion, it opens a little way then you see an on fire half infected body crawling towards you. I stepped back in to the door way and the door closed pinning me in place and refused to open again.

    So minor glitches, nothing game breaking by any means, my memory of HL is hazy but I am certain they have changed and tweaked some of the level design.

    If not d'loaded from steam, does it work with the steam installation of HL?

    Also, does it work on Blue Shift, and Opposing Force?
