Xash3D is the powerful independent open-sourced 3D-engine, aimed for high compatibility with GoldSource engine formats (maps, models, textures, sounds, entities etc.), but with the intention to be an advanced platform for modmaking or game development. Technically it has been built from a scratch, using as totally original ideas, as some ideas from other 3D-engines. Xash3D overcomes obsolete GoldSource engine's limits and provides for you a new quality of gaming experience and modmaking capabilities, as extended map, model, texture & sound formats with higher limits, possibility to implement custom renderers with dynamic lighting and other modern features. Xash3D is the easy-to-use base to play existing Half-Life mods & create something new, impossible with GoldSource. Years of development & testing allowed to make from Xash3D a perfect mix of high compatibility with common GoldSource standards & high openness to creative modmaking ideas.

Description

It's a minor unplanned update of Xash3D (comparing to build 4312). Just added/changed some features related to Quake Wrapper and for one of new Unkle Mike's projects. But there are a lot of changes, if you still use older builds of Xash3D. Press "Read more..." for details.

One piece of advice. Since Unkle Mike implemented a proper support of custom resource\BackgroundLayout.txt for Steam HL background (build 4312), you may have a problem that original WON interface (splash-screen & animated logo) in old HL mods will be replaced by Steam HL background. This will happen if you use assets from Steam HL for your Xash3D installation. The problem will be fixed in later builds, but as a quick fix you may use this method: remove or rename "background" folder from "valve\resource". If you're doing this, make sure you installed WON HL assets from Xash3D extras into "valve" (they're recommended to be installed anyways, so I mentioned this just in case).

Can we now use normalmaps on textures?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

You can use normalmaps only with mods which support them (like some mods based on Paranoia's renderer). Also, normalmaps require specific lighting settings on maps. It means, game maps should be also compiled with the support of normalmaps. Half-Life itself doesn't support normalmaps, not code-wise, nor map-wise.

Is there any plans to have advanced texture effects in XashXT, like normalmaps etc.

Unkle Mike has no plans of adding any new effects in XashXT. All new graphics features will be added only in Paranoia 2 renderer, which still is under slow development. XashXT's development is almost finished.

Hey what is this for?

Xash3D_build4344_src

I am installing Xash3D for my Retail Half Life and I see

Xash3D_build4344
Xash3D_build4344_src

I know what is Xash3D_extras but I don't know what this Xash3D_build4344_src is for.

It's engine's source code for developers' needs (who have a reason to change something in the engine). Means nothing for common users (if you are player or if you just want to make a usual mod without modifying engine itself).

Maybe really incompatible with Win10, I can't test this (or maybe doesn't work properly on x64). Try to change compatibility settings for installer or for installed app. It's also possible to compile the code with later versions of MSVS (like 7, 8 or 10), but this requires some code corrections (e. g. you must rename typedef HSPRITE because it conflicts with the name of the Windows system).

What's your normal desktop resolution? If you can't use properly full-screen mode with any of available resolutions, you can switch to windowed mode. Or install FWGS version, it allows to adjust screen settings to your desktop.

I don't understand what you mean by word 'zoomed' (any screenshot?). If you don't like default FOV, you can change it by disabling FOV auto-adjustment feature and setting any value you want (type in console or edit config.cfg/userconfig.cfg):
r_adjust_fov "0"
defaulf_fov "###"

Put any numeric value instead of "###". Half-Life's default is 90, with wide-screen auto-adjustment it's about 105.

The game saves from this PC version are compatible with the android version from Play Store? I mean mainly about vanilla Half-Life. Can I transfer the game saves between the versions for android and pc of Xash3D?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Qwertyus Author
Qwertyus

Android version is based on old builds of the engine (3598 and earlier), also it contains a ported version of game code (which slightly differs from original). Android saves will be fully incompatible with newest versions of original Xash3D (build 4097 & newer), because in newest builds saves were made compatible with GoldSrc. So you can use old builds of the engine (like 3887 or 3598) to load Android saves, but no warranties, that they will be 100% compatible (because of potential differences with ported game code). This may result in unworking scripted sequeneces or in disabled monsters' AI, for example. But if you manage to continue onto new map from your saved point, the further gameplay shoud be normal.

Okay thanks for the information. :)

Besides I have a small question - Will there ever be a version on the android supporting game saves from the newes builds for pc? The question is purely out of curiosity. ;)

FWGS team will update Android version to latest builds some day, after that all saves will be GoldSrc-compatible. But you should understand that there is still a problem of ported game code, it's not 100% same as on PC and will never be same (but mostly this should not cause significant issues, if code is ported well enough).

1080p is for full-screen mode and only if your monitor does support it. Also see comments above.

Not getting any sound in the menu (when i mouse over items, click stuff), using Steam half life copy of valve folder with all cfg files reset, tried the -autoconfig launch option, also the console is not working despite me launching with -console. also tried -dev in addition to that launch option. No console button, the ` key does nothing.

Windows 10 1607 LTSB (all updates installed). When I click Audio in options i can change stuff but doesnt do anything.

For menu sounds - complete the Step #5.

Console works only if it's enabled (by adding -console or -dev key into the game shortcut), and if secure mode is disabled (read P. S. below).

Already tried that for console, it says in the comment :p anyways thanks so much for the sounds, and as always you've mastered the UI . I have no idea how you made the WON UI, which is insanely buggy on Win10, as Stable as the newer steam goldsrc ui.

I installed the Xash3D with Steam version of HL1. It runs fine, some easy to spot Xash3D features clearly work. Yet, I can't seem to get the High-Res textures to work: Documentation.help

I have seen it in operation with the Quake Remake Upgrade (https://www.moddb.com/mods/quake-remake-upgrade/downloads/qru-qrp-hd-textures-v10) and in Half-Life: New Life (https://www.moddb.com/mods/half-life-new-life). Yet in my base version of HL1 running on Xash3D, the method described in the documentation does not work. I found out that they both have host_allow_materials "1" in their config files. However, this does nothing when I put it in a .cfg or the console. It says it not a recognized command.

I did notice that both HL: New Life and Quake Remake are running off a different structure, each with a custom .exe that launches them.

Any help would be appreciated. To give an idea what my goal is: I want to make a graphic mod that replaces HL1 textures with HD ones as well as use the detail texture feature, to give even more detail up close. Both mod examples I gave seem to indicate this is possible, but I don't know how to proceed for my own mod.

Thanks in advance.

This documentation for Xash3D 0.95. Materials code was moved to XashXT SDK to reduce engine codebase.

I hadn't even noticed the 0.95 and the difference with the 0.99 the current build was at. Makes sense now.

I downloaded 3366 and materials worked immediately. Thank you for the help.

Question, did you mean that XashXT supports the HD materials? Because when I install it doesn't show up as an option.
