    If ever one of us gets cancer or some sort of disease that is going to inevitably kill us.
    Use your "Make A Wish" for "Reveal Half Life 3 fully" or something like that.
    I know I would.

    I feel the need to say that those shadows have artifacts because of low resolution.
    ( Take a look at left bottom corner. And a wall on the right. )
    I mean, feels like a stock flashlight from Ep2, if you know what I mean.

    ( For those who don't want to go back: that screenshot is here. )

    Let's get 300 new posts very rapidly so when someone wakes up and visits Valve Games and Mods will have a heart attack. I'm joking of course: We could never do that without any true motivation and we would probably get banned.

    I thought it wasn't actually the leak that got the game delayed, Valve just wanted to change most of it. They did the same with Half-life, Team Fortress 2, HL2: Episode 2 and Portal 2.

    I thought the game got delayed because they were way behind and the leak came at such a time that they were able to come clean?

    It wasn't. I didn't read the article but I can tell you that in the leak there were lots of current HL2 maps in early stages proving that Valve started to rebuild Half life 2 long before the incident.

    Aside from some changes and rearrangements, many of the maps are largely the same, and so are the weapons, and enemies.

    Basically what was leaked was an unfinished version of the final storyline, everything before that (like AirEx) was already cut.

    pretty sure the source version update broke combinedestiny, rock24 and human error. Eye of the storm suffers a bit from it too.

    In follow-up to the HL2 beta post that I made several pages ago, it would seem that something else has come up.


    Obviously, this isn't canon, but it's still pretty neat.

    Human Error is one of my favorites.

    Great gameplay additions, new enemies, vehicles, and memorable characters - all while giving a new interesting perspective through the gas-mask of a CP.

    I honestly didn't like Human Error. It didn't break canon, sure, but at the same time it didn't feel Half-Lifey. At all.

    I just started playing this and I it's great. The interior design is really well done, plus I like not having the gravity gun as an option. Makes it feel a bit like the original Half-Life.

    Does anyone think that HL3 will be on the Left 4 dead 2 engine or the source engine or a New engine?
    Why do ANYONE separate the Source 2007 branch to L4D Source branch.

    L4D Source is an engine branch, not a new engine.

    On top of that, it's out dated.

    CSGO is Source and much prettier than L4D2.

    This seems to be mostly due to the really sexy new dynamic shadows and self-shadowing. The only way I can really think of to make Source better now (mostly for modding purposes) is to update the godawful and restrictive .bsp format used for maps (And by that, I probably mean just use a different map format altogether), because they're going to need to do so eventually.

    The beta had a lot of good concepts, although later didnt fit very well in game.

    I dont know what to talk here, so ill ask something easy: there are new "easter eggs" about Half-Life in CS:GO/DOTA2?

    Not in Dota, but CS:GO there were textures with references about HL3's development.

    Would be nice if Valve made the model format so it's like the Half Life 2 Beta, but is at model format 21.

    .mdl (defines the model)
    .vvd (important, vertex data)
    .phy (optional, physics model)
    .dx7_2bone.vtx (defines the bones)
    .cloth (optional, cloth physics)
    .anims (animations, makes it easier to define animations rather than .mdls.)
    .dx80.vtx (orange box stuff)
    .dx90.vtx (orange box stuff)

    But, the current file format is easier right now.
