Guys, its been well worth the wait.
Yes...that is correct. Why the frown? Like I said it's well more than half.
Getting 2.5MB/sec from Shacknews
Has anyone found the crowbar yet? It is not in the location that it was in the original
NVM in the room past the intrance
I went with the Torrent
I've downloaded it with the torrent, on principle and will let it seed for several days, perhaps a week or so. However, as much as I want to play, it will have to wait until tomorrow cuz I'm knackered and going to sleep now.
WOW, I've been playing and it's well done!
downloading at 1.8MB/s via the official torrent with a few extra trackers added, overall going to take bout 40 minutes to download.... so excited but not excited about having a broked graphics card, i'll report back on how well it plays on intel HD 3x graphics
Still seeding it. Peaking at around 4.6MB/s I will prolly let it go all night.
Agreed! Did anyone notice the icons on the non-BSOD'd Windows terminals? I recognized Firefox...
Also there is a certain guy chatting with a research supervisor in an office. You can hear their voices but it's muffled.
And the little Office Space bit was funny.
The intel GPU is overclocked to 1800Mhz and here are the settings that were used:
The only thing that it seems to struggle with is rendering liquids the FPS takes a nose dive there and big open areas with lots of objects gives it trouble too but still playable.
I averaged about 22FPS during the ride Peaked at about 32fps and dipped to 9fps at liquid sequences. i think i am going to turn AA off.
The rest is just some eye candy of the tram ride the fps counter is up in the top right hand corner
back to the game now
any install instructions?
I dled SDK 2007, but do I also need to dl 2006 SDK?
No. Just run the game installer and grab SDK 2007 then can be launched from Steam (or from installer at end). I had to restart Steam to get it to show in my Games list though.
Well I just played for about an hour and either the game is harder or I'm getting worse at games.
Also, what's up with the jump? I can't get on even the slightest of ledges without crouch jumping. Anyone else having this problem?
I choose medium, and I'm in trouble LOL.
Black Mesa team deserves an applause!
Also,I must say, very good effort on the soundtrack by Joel Nielson
Downloaded now! @ 750MB/s ! Stoked!! How did I forgot about this today?!
I have it downloaded. will install tomorrow and give it a spin.
O_O Why am i just seeing this today, I've heard about Black Mesa before but didn't think it was a remake to HL1, my brain mut be giving away
downloading via torrent link now and getting about 715KB\s which is pretty good for the crappy internet we have, cant wait...
Man I can't stop playing this game! They really did a great job! I made my wife watch me up until the test chamber!.. I took her to the break room and told her I was going to show her something awesome! Then turned on the microwave and looked at her and said look how kickass that IS!! She looked at me like I was crazy and said and? I was like, "You know how bad ass that was in 97!"...lol They said it was 9 hours of content.. Well because I can't stop looking at everything.. It's going to take me 40 hours at this rate! lol Gabe needs to give these guys a job!
Last part of this sign made me laugh.
that's a quinessential case of nostalgia!
Well I FINALLY fired it up. It really does look great. I haven't played HL in YEARS so I feel like a total noob and "trying" to remember the story but have been wandering pretty aimlessly so far.
The loading pauses are pretty abrupt and break the immersion a bit. I'm so rusty on my Source but wasn't there a "caching" command or something to help out with that?
yea I am... i'm on "blast pit" and so far there are areas of the game where i have to hold shift+w and hit ctrl+space while still holding the other two keys just to make some jumps... its a bit tricky but if you get the combo just right you can make any (reasonable) jump every time. Yea.. it is a little more challenging this time around with some surprises thrown in. some areas are very familiar right off the bat and others take a little getting used to but overall I like the game/mod a lot.
Yea some things aren't where they were before. Some you get sooner and others you get later than you would in the original. I won't spoil which is which...
So far the only real issue, aside from the tricky jumping, is a sharp performance decrease when...
...when the automated turrets placed by the soldiers open fire. For whatever reason the framerate takes a drastic drop. I go from 80+ fps all the way down to the high teens/low 20s.
Aside from that I'm loving the game so far.
LOL The "Mighty Source Engine" won't even kick my card out of Idle Clocks I have it totally cranked minus the AA(4x) The "power" of the 7970? Or the age of the Engine.
Since the game is now out, I removed the word footage from the title so people know this is the thread to chat about the gameplay (or whatever).
