    HALF-LIFE 2: SURVIVOR Ver2.0

    We now have a Steam Group!
    http://steamcommunity.com/groups/hl2survivorpc

    There's a model pack for Garry's Mod and the SFM:
    GMod Edition
    SFM Edition filehost does not exist anymore, files presumed lost forever

    For anyone who just wanted the map files, here they are:
    https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3Mm...it?usp=sharing

    To fully run Survivor, you will need the following:
    1. Ben1066's fixed binaries: Mirror (17.7 MB)
    2. The complete Half-Life 2: Survivor Ver2.0 Content Dump: Torrent (2.7 GB, compressed in 7z format)
    For the straight HTTP uploads being unavailable I've uploaded it to mega twice now, and put my own mirror up (for HTTP).

    mega.co.nz (1)
    mega.co.nz (2)
    glitchvid.com
    ^ This costs me, so use it sparingly.
    3. Pre-2007 Half-Life 2 materials, models, and sounds
    The vpk files you want to extract are located here:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Source SDK Base\vpks

    And these are the names of the vpk files you need to extract:
    depot_206_dir.vpk
    depot_207_dir.vpk
    depot_208_dir.vpk
    Before you post in the thread, please note that the screen resolution for this game is LOCKED at 1366x768, as that was the resolution of the screen of the original cabinet. Please do not ask in the thread about how to change this, it's impossible.


    Once you have all that handy, follow the Readme instructions included with the fixed binaries and you'll soon be knee deep in Japanese Half-Life 2. Here's a small taste of what's on offer:

    supersoldier58 and danielmm8888 have gotten Half-Life 2: Survivor to actually work multiplayer! And we have a nice video to show off, with a tutorial to compliment. The video would have been uploaded sooner, but FRAPs was a nasty piece of software in the process, regardless, Half-Life 2: Survivor is actually really easy to set up in multiplayer! Here's what they did:

    Start a multiplayer match as you would normally with the bots and everything (using the survivor menu, no console stuff) and once you loaded and you can move around, use your debug console and type in disconnect (possibly twice). Here is what you do from there in step form:
    1. type maxplayers 2 (or however many you need) in console
    2. type net_start in console
    3. type sv_lan 0 in console
    4. type map (what map you want) in console
    5. once loaded, type heartbeat in console
    6. Kick the bots (it's hard since they have really strange names, but I usually just select all and copy in the debug console, and select their names to copy so I can kick from there) using status > kick "bot name"
    7. tell the non host's to connect (host ip with hamachi)
    You need hamachi for this to work, it's really easy to set up. As far as I know the host of hamachi should also host the survivor match.
    ALSO: Some of that stuff up there might not be needed, supersoldier58 and danielmm8888 did this for testing purposes, feel free to make the steps up there more efficient!

    So does anyone want to get a match going? Also can someone else be host, right now my internet is being a pain. So yeah, just post whether or not you want to get a match going and we can see if we get enough people.
    Repost from the discussion thread, but this offer still stands, seems strange the "lost Half-Life game" is finally out but nobody wants to get a match on the go. Would be fun to play with quite a few real people, not just bots.

    In the event of an error, the program shuts off the computer.
    Marphy, is there a way to cut this out of the game?

    Oh wait, Ben said he'd retry to remove that "feature"

    Ben1066 said he might be able to do something about this, so I defer to his knowledge.

    I'm curious to know, though, where do you experience these crashes when playing? If it's during Story Mode, pepper314's fixes may address that problem.

    In order to make the text display correctly, you need to set your OS language to Japanese or use a program like AppLocale. However, I have not personally tested either option, so I'm not sure if it's worth the hassle.

    Put that XP patch in the OP too, someone might need it:
    These binaries MAY work on xp, overwrite those that are in the original set, you still need some of the others. I have tried on Windows 8 and they are functional, but I don't have an XP machine to test on.

    I'm curious to know, though, where do you experience these crashes when playing? If it's during Story Mode, pepper314's fixes may address that problem.
    As someone already said, just hold down F1 and you will get a "Coin error". Unfixed story mode doesn't crash the game though, it just hangs.

    That means "не перезаписывай те файлы, которые уже лежат в тех папках", but I still overwrited them and everything was fine, so no idea why are you crashing.

    You can get full copies of the old GCFs by downloading Source SDK Base 2006.
    I guess you have to extract source materials.gcf , source models.gcf, and source sounds.gcf that come with SDK2006.

    Also, does anyone know how to fix this problem?

    When I try to use the default resolution though, it says "failed to set video mode - resetting to defaults" and changes it into a big-ass resolution where I can't see 95% of the menu/hud/movies
    Also, I'm up for a Battle game

    The same thing happened to me when I put too many coins before the attract intro; it just displays "COIN ERROR" and shuts down the computer.

    During or after the attract intro though, the error never happens, no matter how many coins I put in.

    Well the game doesn't even seem to use the maplist.txt. The maplist only seems to contain the default HL2 DM maps, which aren't used by battle mode.

    Anyway, does anyone wanna play battle mode?

    And that's just one of the weapons that you can't normally access in Battle mode.
    Back when NESYS worked, you could unlock weapons, unlock skins, and customize your loadout.
