Black Mesa Source is released

Postby ad_hominem on Fri Sep 14, 2012 5:27 pm

I'm not sure there're many people that will read this that need informing, but possibly the most eagerly awaited mod ever has been released today. Black Mesa Source - a remake of Half-Life 1 sans the Xen levels - is now available for anyone to download.

So, go and download!

I'll be downloading it tomorrow. As I can only download like 40MB before my internet is cut off for the next six days.

I've played a fair portion of it and it really is good. It's a lot better in motion and the changes they've made are real nice. The humour especially. Damn fine mod.

Only crit at the moment is the sequence when you see Xen with the Vorts who greet you for the first time. That was a bit lacking but the rest. Well done.

So far I'm nearly done with on a rail. As a guy who does particle effects every single day, thats where the mod lacks the most. They have so many .pcf files for particles but they are so sub-par. Some of the effects are unoptimized and extremely laggy, and others just look like crap. Other than particles and some unoptimized levels. Its fantastic so far.

Here, some random pics of effects, models and stuff. I was playing on medium cause certain maps were lagging real bad. Overall it's real nice. There's some questionable mapping and the quality goes up and down in some chapters but it's still enjoyable. In fact I tried to replay HL1 a month or so ago but couldn't get into it but I find myself enjoying BM a lot more. I think it's the fact combat feels more natural as HL1 enemies absorbed bullets.

Your PC can't handle the DLights, turn them off in the options.
