You can't stop me from posting anything I want here. This is my own private domicile.
I think something is wrong with my Lambda Generation...
Here's some photos of really early Half-Life as seen in some French E3 97 coverage. Its spliced in-between footage of Half-Life's first trailer. Depicts the cut chapters C3A4 and Security Complex (C1A3).
Half-Life at ECTS 1997. The build that was shown off at ECTS 1997 is also the same build as the leaked Alpha.
In the Preliminary Findings footage, Barney can be seen with no pistol when firing.
There's something quite amusing with the development screenshots of C3A2. The maps are mostly untouched between retail and the maps from around mid-1998. Some minor changes like a hallway being closed up and the portal sprites just being colored rectangular prisms. (First and third photos are pre-release and second and fourth photo are retail.)

I've been thinking about returning to this project. If so, I wonder if it would be at all possible to get it done before the 25th anniversary of HL. "But Theuaredead, that's just Untimely Demise in Opposing Force, I don't see anything different!" you proclaim. That's precisely the point; that means it is doing its job. ;)
I like GoldSource. Did you know that GoldSource does checks for the Quake Mission Packs because Valve never stripped the code from the original Quake source code?
