Possibly? Yes, but not by us.

I see thanks. So we might see some touch from modders to this already great mod after release
Black Mesa with the latest CS:GO engine would look beyond perfection with the new lighting and shadowing, not to mention cloth physics ... that would add another layer of realism to the NPCs

The new website won't go up until the mod's about to be released. All of the updates will be in one hit.

Ok... Please don't call me stupid or dumb or anything, but I heard from LambdaGeneration on April 13'th that the BMS sound track was "released." And it also said that BMS would be released 2 WEEKS after the sound track has been "released." I checked my calendar yesterday, and I was guessing it would release tomorrow (today). Can someone clarify with me? I'm not trying to annoy anybody

Will you send the final build to Valve before releasing it to the community?
Are you obliged (or just feel obliged) to get their approval, permission for releasing Black Mesa or something like that?
What if Valve suggests porting BM to the newest Source and gives you Portal 2's "retail" SDK... Would you do it?

The sound guy has merely put up the website for the soundtrack's download in preparation for the mod release but since the mod doesn't have a release date yet, it's useless for now.

It's simple, there's still no soundtrack nor mod yet. You were misinformed.

I meant, not released like actually released. Didn't they say that once the soundtrack is FINISHED it will get released two weeks after?

No, they said they would RELEASE the soundtrack two weeks before the mod release.

In fact, the soundtrack has been essentially finished for a few months now.

Because the mod is not finished.

Are you incapable of understanding basic logic?

Anyway, I'm pretty sure you'll know when Black Mesa is released, since this sure as hell won't be a silent release. Most major gaming sites will talk about it.

Lmao.. Yeah they gonna get a few laughs about it, if you mean that by talking about it.. Releasing a Source version by now wont be any hit in the graphics department.. and seeing that the release takes this long....

What might happen is:
When enough time has passed, perhaps people will have forgotten about Black Mesa, so when it gets released they be like "Heey cool a HL mod"

You underestimate how (in)famous this mod is.

Besides, the idea always was to remake the mod to, at least, HL2 graphics standards, not to the standard of the latest and more advanced commercial engine out there.
