Au Heppa and Psycho from Half-Life Short Stories plus more information on how you can win a copy of HL2, HL2:EP2 and HL2:EP1!!!

Posted by on

Joining us this week we have Au Heppa and Psycho from Half-Life: Short Stories and Emanuel (NoPK). William sweetens the competition pot by adding a copy of Episode Two into the pot and Jeff has another question for us.

Just an FYI: Podcast17, William, Emanuel and Nic do not share the same thoughts about the PP month in review as Thomas does. Thomas comment was simple a joke and is not to be taken seriously - that also goes for Phillips comment on www.podcast17.com

Thanks for the mention guys! You're pretty much right that the mod isn't so much a full game than it is an attempt to show that, well, we did *something*. You're also spot on on the animations--pretty much that's the only thing we don't have, as we tried to bind the animations to the standard metrocop anims, and sorely failed. The team has more or less been stuck in a (6-month) growing period where we were trying a lot of different things (including an Unreal 3 mod) before going back to this just in time for GDC. No excuses, though, we're hoping to get some more going on, including polishes, in the coming weeks.

LOL, I’m late on this one hehe. First let me thank you guys for adding us to your pod cast. Second just to clear it up we had to rename the Mod to Aliens vs Hunter so Fox would not slam a ban hammer on us. Despite sending out 13 E-mails to Fox and Rebellion asking for permission to make our mod we got no reply. Then a month later we got the news of the new AVP Game. Knowing we would be stopped for sure now we decided to move the Mod to the New AVP 2010 Eng when the tools are available. BTW, night vision was still work in progress :)
P.s We are changing the mod back to Aliens vs Predator lol
