Black Mesa Mod released!

Posted: September 16, 2012 by Kaemon in Kaemon's Rants, News, Special

Ey. Both Hannibal and myself had been really busy with IRL stuff lately. Personally I will probably remain busy for two more weeks, while Hannibal should be settling with his new life style and getting a decent internet connection any time this week.  So we really don’t have any news of our own to post…

However, the guys making the Black Mesa mod finally released it this week! So I will use that as a new! XD


Bringing back some memories?


I believe most of you already knew about this, but those that were still unaware I highly recommend you to go try it. I personally had problems with the direct downloads so I ended up installing Torrent just to download it.

The mod recreates the whole Half-Life 1 game into the Source engine; but unlike HL:Source, is not just a fast conversion or port, but a full and complete remake. Everything was done from scratch: models, maps, weapons… And this way it takes full advantage of the Source engine; having more physic objects, better detailed environments and even some minor extra areas here and there… The gameplay (and the game itself) remain, however, exactly as the original Half-Life.

So if you never played it back in the day, or you just feel like playing it again (like myself) you can take this chance to play it upgraded and with some minor extras here and there. A must play in my opinion, being a huge fan of both the original HL and the fan-made games.

    I know its not really “fresh news”, and that some of you probably have beaten the mod already … But still; I think its a nice new for those that didn’t know about it, and we really don’t have anything to share of our own right now.
    I’m busy IRL this month (wich is not usually the case) and Hannibal is still settling in Ireland; getting a house, searching an internet provider, getting used to his job, etc…

    Hopefully some news from Hannibal this week. I will try to post at least once on the weekends; but right now I don’t have even time for playing some Zombie Escape. XD

    You’ll need to know how to use the oil soldiers from Hammer Source Rezurrection.

    I have discovered a glitch in mako: It’s possible to win without activate the buttons, but you must be very fast to go in the bunker, (with this technical, you don’t have to kill sephiroth because you arrival about 2 secondes before the nuke, the finish mode’s message appear and the nuke don’t arrive).
    Its not important but I said to show that we can win Hard without activating the buttons (you must walk side and go up to the rope quickly).

    Joris: WTF dude? XD

    1st Anonymous: Indeed.

    2nd Anonymous: I have no freaking clue what you are talking about. I thought japanese were better with english. Anyway… I can’t put two pieces together of what you are talking about, sorry.

    Moltard: I believe you already posted this; and I believe you used the same exact sentence. The buttons are there to make it easier (faster, less holding time). You are “suposed” to not have enough time to win Hard if you don’t press them; but if you managed to get to the final room fast enough to activate the event and still have time to get into the bunker before the explosion… Good for you. I’m pretty sure Hannibal wouldn’t label it as a bug. If you are able to beat Hard without using the buttons; good for you. Not only is not a glitch, but its harder (you have to hold the final room longer) if you don’t press them.

    When i have discovered this glitch i was VIP on the server, so i can run more fast. The nuke don’t arrive if one player enter in the bunker its strange, no ? But after sephiroth kill people in the bunker.

    Hannibal When do you start porting your maps (Mines,Mount and Helms shouldn’t take long) for csgo?

  10. mat.duf says:

    this has been already answer : ze mappers are waiting some months before trying to port their maps (waiting for a bug free editor and working entities).

  11. Moltard says:

    There is a big bug very annoying, today in hellz server, we have played on paranoid, the select mode was “Everyone can choose the Mode”, players shooted like crazy and the 2 last block were break in the same time. So i think the mode would be Normal but 0 mode was choose and we were stuck , i think you must fix this problem.

  12. Joris Ceoen says:

    Regarding Paranoid… I find it very annoying people seem to keep picking up the same modes over and over as well as keeping choosing the old modes and not new ones.

    Believe it or not, I have never ever played a single time any of the new modes that were added in with the last version, not a single time. I don’t even have the slightest idea what they are and how they play. People just keep choosing 2 spawns and voluntary (which are in my opinion one of the most boring modes of them all)

    So due to that reason, I do not play Paranoid a lot anymore ^^

  13. Moltard says:

    @ Joris, players don’t choose every time modes that you say, because often it shoot on any boxes (they don’t know modes).

    if there is another bug that I discovered, if a human win the previous round and he became the zombie mother, he will have about 2000 HP instead of the normal 6000, so it is much easier to kill and often die before the mode starts.

  14. Moltard says:

    And I think the bug works in all server (but i had find it Hellz server).

    @kaemon, one question: the invulnerability weapon can it allow to survive of the explosion of a Minigun or a sacred grenade ?
