Of 17 chapters, the last 4 chapters will be in a second release. That gives you 13 chapters to play and have fun in. Is it REALLY such a horrible thing? With every post I post on this site, it is followed up with "When BM OUt?" regardless of what the topic is. Now it is coming out and now all you can say is "Without Xen? WTF?"

Take a look at yourselves and see what exactly what the "Fortress Forever" real problem is.

I am done here.
I feel your pain Catz. 17+ years in open source I see this all the time. Something free that the only expense that the user has to make is to install and use/play and they piss and moan like they were the one bankrolling it...

I believe the words you guys are struggling to find are "Thank you."

Now...fire up steam and see what I can do with this...

It's called jokes. I don't think anyone here was really assaulting BM.

Oh and also, and I don't mean to sound rude, but just because someone does something, really works hard and puts their everything into it, doesn't mean we have to like it or even embrace it. If someone doesn't like your game you can't act like a baby because you worked so hard on it. Because people are entitled to their opinions, and this is a discussion board.

That said, I'm sure BM will be wonderful, and I'll even load it up and see what's up with the what up. Good work BM team.

Eeeek! torrents are sloooow, the black mesa release download page is being thrashed, and the 3 sites as mirrors are basically either 403 forbidden, 502 bad gateway error for the canadian one, and gamefront only seems to have 2 of 3 and 3 of 3 files.

Hello all. It's really weird that today I just decided to check out some old websites I used to frequent many years ago. Black Mesa was one of them and FF was another. Gonna finally check out BM. What has it been, like 7 years or something since it started??? holy shit man. Hope you're all doing well irl.

A few screenshots I took while playing:

The Art of Barrel Stacking


HOT!


Cool view. Don't look down!


These were particularly difficult to kill until I popped a few in the head with my .357 Magnum.


PIZZA PARTY! HOORAY!!!

Last week when I got the game there were 3k torrent seeds, mine averaged around 70kps. Monday it was up to 7k. Today 11k seeds. Torrent is the way to go for a 3GB download. Having just finished the game staring at the "to be continued" screen I thought what a FUCKING AWESOME experience. Black Mesa is pretty damn cool.

Never played the original HL. So I've been playing through BM and it's just sexy as hell. I'm really enjoying it. However there are a few quirks that are dampening my experience.

The BM team just straight up fucked ladders. They are so annoying to use now.

Music ONLY plays during battles. Idk what's up with that. I enjoy the music itself, but instead of adding to the ambiance of the game it just distracts me in gun fights, making it impossible to hear enemies and such.

Also BM is the second game I've played that I experience negative mouse accel. Idk why that is, and I don't think it's really the devs fault or anything. It's just annoying.

I completely agree with the ladders. That first boss fight where you gotta not get hit by those tentacle/claw things were difficult only due to the ladders and unfortunately, it's the same throughout the entire game.

The only other thing I didn't like was the amount of weapons I was obtaining. I'm pretty OCD about keeping ammo in my weapons at all times, so I rarely went without. Since I don't use 1-9 for choosing a weapon(instead I use [ and ] nextwep/prevwep/lastinv), it made it difficult sometimes to sort through the mess of weapons to find which one I wanted.

Still, even with these issues, I give this unfinished mod a 10/10 so far and I cannot wait till we see the last part of the game released as well as co-op or multiplayer.

Btw, co-op is possible currently, but it's a bitch to set up from what I hear and since it's only a workaround and not an actual feature, there will probably be issues with getting locked in places and stuff like that.

Since there are new half life players I'll censor certain things. Part of the fun is discovery.

The music "interludes" are from the original game at certain points. i agree while they initially add to the environment the shear volume is distracting. Can't hear whats going on in the arena.

I think the ladders were fucked in the original half life too. Maybe that's on purpose for this mod but I agree they are a pain and getting past the tentacles is tough because you get stuck on the ladders. And timing critical.

And how many times did I drop to my death trying to get onto a ladder. Same as the original.

One of the challenges from half life was the severe lack of ammo. Half way through the mod I stopped conserving and once you get the (censored) gun it's just baby town frolic. The enemy AI is tough though. Those shotgun (censored) are friggin hell. I will give it a month or so and try the hardest setting to see if ammo is more scarce. Since the alerted AI basically tracks you through walls there is no sneaking in this game.

The weapons also mirror half life but they are refreshingly modded heavily. And yeah when you turn a corner and a (censored) teleports in it's like "fuck where's my shotgun!" click click click - dead.

The achievements are also a nice touch. I didn't even know you could overcharge the (censored) and when I did and died I lol'd at the achievement.

The devs also have a great sense of humor, looking around at the little details is fun.

Black Mesa like Fortress forever is fucking pro.

10/10

To reference the original, I can't wait for xen!

Thoughts:

Didn't like what they did for weapon selection, where if you have the pistol out and you press 2 again, it immediately selects the revolver. Just felt clunky and an unnecessary change that shouldn't have been on if you had quick weapon switching turned off.

Also, there's simply too many ammo drops to compensate for being able to carry less ammo. The two main weapons in the game are honestly the revolver and shotgun because they're constantly throwing ammo for those two weapons at you all game, and while it's not -bad-, I wish the other weapons could be made better by carrying more ammo (and the pistol sucks complete dick compared to HL1's pistol - you could beat HL1 with just crowbar + pistol, even the final boss).

Also, the crowbar oneshotting headcrabs is stupid. That's one thing I hated about HL2, being able to take out headcrabs with one swing made them feel like an annoyance rather than a threat. Especially in BM, where they only do, what, 8 damage on hard mode? Kind of pointless now.

Difficulty is great, the marines kicked my ass several times throughout my runs. There are still ways to abuse their AIs, like in any game, but overall it felt rewarding to get past a tough area.

Visually it's incredibly stunning, especially the opening sequence and the cliff part. Particularly when the jets fly overhead into the background (not going to spoil it).

I liked a lot of the liberties they took with some level designs (questionable ethics). At first I was worried they'd change too much from HL1, but they did a good job in picking what was bad and could be improved, and what was already awesome and memorable.

Voiceovers are a mixed bag - most are great, but the occasional ones (female scientists for instance) feel off. And the solid snake marines...well, they grow on you.

Overall it's a great mod. For using the source engine, the production values are still incredibly high and if it wasn't HL1 it could probably be passed off as its own game. I'm very excited to see what they do with Xen.

(also how can some people have never played the original HL? if you're looking for iconic FPSes, you have to play the early iD games, and you have to play half-life. They pretty much defined early FPSes and the FPSes in late-90's/early 00's. seriously it's like $5 on steam)
