Each env_xen_portal entity has a field that defines the size of the effects based on the size of the NPC that it spawns.

It will be in the form of an update that adds the Xen chapters to Black Mesa. It will make the transition from Lambda Core to Xen seamless.

Maybe. We haven't planned to, but we haven't planned not to.

Is there any chance of making the subtitles file available for a few people to work with? If I get it, I promise I will not show it to anyone!
We should be making the subtitles available for translation sometime soon.

Yes and yes, in no particular order.

I've been doing 11-12 hour days at work recently. I don't see that changing anytime soon.

It won't be this year.

Only the bare minimum; we've stripped out all unused assets from the game to cut down on filesize and to help keep Xen under wraps.

It will be an update. Black Mesa: Deathmatch will be a separate game.

They'll be released at the same time, but they will be separate games.

Music stops playing when the map changes.

It will be more old-school and fast-paced, but with our own spin on it.

I'll Paypal him fifty bucks anyway if he really wants. You know I have a job, right?

It was a group decision by the lead developers.

No, just about everyone was on board with the reasoning behind the decision.

It will be an update that inserts the Xen chapters after Lambda Core.

Yes, but you'll need to copy them across yourself.

It wasn't made that recently, but recent events confirmed that it was the correct course of action.

Report your post to the moderators, they can do it for you.

You'll get over it.

It's not news that trolls are/have been waiting around the corner for this, but now it's butthurt (for whatever reason) people as well.

So, some "feedback" won't necessarily be as well-meant/"honest opinion" as they'll claim to be.
Haters gonna hate.

I don't think it's a case of one being easier than the other, they play differently.

I know Valve has not yet released any public betas regarding S4L, but I'd like to know if there are any future plans to put Black Mesa on Linux? Or at least make it work well with Wine?
If we can port our codebase over easily, we will probably support Linux.

No. You'll be able to make maps and mods for Black Mesa, but you won't be able to use our assets in your own mod.

We won't be revealing the list of achievements until after the game is released.
