  • Black Mesa is free, but Xen will cost extra

  • I've been trying to figure out in my head how to improve Xen, while still keeping some of the feel of the original ever since I first stumbled on Black Mesa. Just the other day, a sudden thought struck me: what if the problem isn't with Xen as much as it is with the Long Jump Module? If this was changed to act as a double jump system while wearing it (and skip the whole crouch, then jump activation method) it could allow Xen to be just as open and vertical, (or even moreso) but a simple misstep …

  • the lack of invisible mines is going to be a big letdown for me. The tentacles i will be able to live without, but I really did enjoy shooting at the damn things to try to figure out where they all were. having them visible is just going to make me wonder what the point is.

  • Personally, I was leaning more towards "For SCIENCE!" and just letting it be activated by them NOT being dead at the end of the chapter. There could even be one for each chapter of the game that has any scientists. I don't really like the escort mission side of things. Besides, a lot of the scientists that are supposed to die end up standing around and wont even follow you after you save their butts

  • I have to agree that the scene was a LOT more intense with the script and voice acting that BM team added there. Still, gotta love the source engine. I used a barrel, but I also restarted and saved them once I realized you could throw objects in order to break glass. I'm currently going through the entire game trying to save every single scientist possible, using stacking to get to places so you can take out hazards ahead of time, or to block scientists from going someplace that would get them k…

  • Quote from Raminator: “It's not coded, it's a scripted sequence. It wouldn't work if you tried to turn it into a randomly-occurring AI event.” I know that, I was referring more to the fact that you should at least have some sort of animation that you can reference, instead of needing to go completely from scratch. Also so there is a pre-existing presidence so players can't call bullshit on them being able to do it.

  • I know suggestions are rarely worth submiting this far in, but I just thought it would be fun if there were more features that only popped up on hard difficulty, like how assassins can turn invisible. Specifically it would be cool if icthyosaurs could leap from the water and drag you in on hard difficulty. The code for it should already be somewhere in the code, (in some form) since it sort of happens to the scientist in the cutscene for the tranq bow.

    I think the spaces are okay, as long as that format is consistently used. It helps to make sure the brackets don't merge into the first and last letters at all.

  • Quote from gibbelin: “Yes, I agree that Valve screwed the pooch by not acknowledging that their tools have gone to shit, but I can't really take someone seriously after they flat out say the source code theft was Valve's fault. Whatever you say, dipshit.” To be fair, I think that was simply a misused term. the impression I got was that Phillip meant to say that it was Valve's RESPONSIBILITY to keep the source code from being leaked, and yet despite it being entirely Valve's responsibility, the c…

    Because even though Psychonauts was a critically acclaimed game, it still sold horribly.

    Concept Screenshot for Inception Video Game. Actually, now that I think about it, there already IS an Inception video game. It's called Psychonauts. Go Play it.

    Quote from JamesKane: “You have the ability to switch between always run or always. So you can always run and use the +speed button to walk or you can always walk and use the +speed button to run. We also added a custom interface in the main menu where you can toggle walk/run feature along with many more options.” we should update the wiki with that information. I would assume it should go here: wiki.blackmesasource.com/Singleplayer_Movement

    Are you also open to map packs, or are you only interested in mods? If the former, I recommend Flash Version Map Pack, and Underground Story. If the latter, I recommend Aperture Deja Vu.

    I found the images, I didn't really get excited or upset. The stuff that is finished looks pretty well polished, and has a style that meshes really well with HL2, but I know it's not going to look as detailed as in the screenshots when running on my laptop, so I really only get so much from them. As for the bugs that the screenshots showed... well. duh. It's not finished, are there seriously people using this to complain that Black Mesa is going to be a big letdown? I'm more concerned with the g…

  • Quote from higgsboson: “Think of the Portal boss fight: It was fun, but required using skills that you've learned throughout the game, and not just "shoot as much as you can to kill the boss".” Isn't that the primary skill you learned in HL1?

    I really hope this isn't just left to the synergy team to handle. I feel like this conversation has to have taken place multiple times. "okay, multiple people can get onto the same map? Check. Okay, lets throw in some vehicle spawn for each player and call it a day. player balance? what if someone get stuck? respawning with half health and a single set of ammo, even though they're in the middle of a firefight that they came into with full health and suit power and completely filled and STILL die…

  • Wow, this thread actually has potential. While nothing is likely to be incorporated at this point, it at least is something that hasn't been discussed to death, and also hasn't been confirmed one way or the other (since we know nothing of Xen) Actually, an idea I just had was that when you crack open Nihilanth's head, he has an area effect that takes all your weapons and has them explode away from you to far corners of the map. (the crowbar will always go straight up and not far, so that simply …

  • amazing what difference that a single apostrophe can make. He's asking if anyone knows how to script a mod so that it takes over control of the camera and has it fly through a set path like what valve did at the end of portal where the camera went down the long winding corridor to a room with a cake in it, after the credits were over.

  • Try checking at PlanetPhillip forums, the main site has over a thousand mods (all single player, so no multiplayer crap to sort through) and there are at least a handful of people who have played all of them. Your description sounds relatively unique, so it might just trigger someone's memory over there.

  • I always thought that Ram's Gentlemen's Club was where all the threads that got "deleted" but still show on the forums as being moved to a different forum section, even though no one has access to them.
