A new site in the community!
Half-Life Centre aims to bring you the latest on Half-Life
so check them out! They are part of the First Person Shooter
will have a Half-Life 1.1 compatible version of their mod:
news. We had planned to release a Half-Life 1.1 compatible
version of SI today, along with the Half-Life patch itself.
Unfortunately, we didn't make it. We came close, but in
the end, we couldn't fix all the bugs in time. There were
a number of mild bugs (glitches) that we were just going
to release in spite of, but then an issue came up where
the server would crash when selecting teams at start-up.
The crashes are pretty bad, you'll have to reboot your pc
if you' re using Windows 98.
gave us the choice: release beta 0.96 in a hardly working
and highly crappy state, or delay a few days and release
a proper version. The choice was easy. Believe me, I don't
like it anymore than you people, but it's the way it is.
HL reports that they should have a release of their mod
ready for Friday that will work with Half-Life 1.1. Also it
will contain many bug fixes! Let hope that it improves slightly!
Over at the Hostile
Territory Site there have been a few screenshots of some
models for the mod and an update letting people know that
they are applying the new SDK to their mod.
Eye for HL 1.1?
I believe that the Golden
Eye mod team will be releasing a patch for their mod to
bring it upto Half-Life 1.1 tonight, Thursday, June
15. I will keep you posted on the developments.
2.0 & Fix
For those who don't know Firearms
2.0 is out. It works with Half-Life 1.1. There is however
a bug that has been fixed. So if you have slow movement in
your game be sure to download the patch or full version again.
Make sure you only use the mirrors from this
Over at Desert
Storm Site there has been an update on the mods progress.

Strike 6.5 Released
As you may already know CS
6.5 has been released for use with Half-Life 1.1. If CS is
your thang... go check 'em out. There is also reports on a
couple of bugs.
Over at the Contract
Killers Site, there are some new screenshots for your
viewing pleasure! Also... reports indicate that the mod will
be released faily soon. I will keep you posted!
Over at Action
HL the team are having problems with teamplay bugs:
bugs, I hate em'!
things can sometimes happen in Teamplay, when dealing with
the end or start of the round. Sometimes its normal, starts
right, ends right and awards the points right. Other times
it doesn't start, ends when people are still alive or simply
awards the points to the wrong team. Its annoying to say
the least. I ended up spending most of my time on the server
doing nothing but spectating, trying to track it down.
Lets hope that the Action
HL team can get the bugs ironed out and bake a copy of
there mod for Half-Life 1.1 :) I will keep you posted.
Starwars has been Shutdown... Lucas has shutdown the up-and-coming
mod for Half-Life...
it was fun while it lasted *sigh*. I've received a response
to my e-mail to Lucasarts. Well, turns out they want us
to shut this thing down...
not sure if the project's dead or not, but I couldn't imagine
building this mod under any other name. After all, the basic
premise of the design was based upon Star Wars. Why else
would a person have supernatural powers to push people?
I don't want to turn this in to AD&D ;)
well, I won't be here for much longer then... Good luck
Half-Life Tools 2.1.1

at the HLCU. They can now be found here.
