  • HAPPY 15TH BIRTHDAY HALF-LIFE! We here at Black Mesa have some big news! The Big News: Last year, Black Mesa was one of the first Steam games to be Greenlit by you, our amazing fans.

    exact resolution is limited by your monitor as well as your video card. I'd say with that card you can probably run the game at whatever highest resolution your monitor supports.

  • Quote from Gasher: “Can you make a sticky about required specs (polys, UV map max size etc)... you know what else would rock?.. a small db of assets that have been made and are in the works.. with thumbs etc... this could not only help reduce redundancy, but can help folks get ideas of other shit that can be made... you know, to make this be the best it can be.” What we are expecting here are improvements to the current assets in the game.
