[Pack] HL:S:HD 2.0 beta UNOFFICIAL Release
« on: September 10, 2009, 10:31:47 PM »



Hello all, some of you may remember me as the HL:S:HD Project Leader (2005-07).  Since leaving the Project I have kept tabs on it and occasionally dropped in to say "hey" to the Team.  Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, work seems to have come to a halt.  I had brought up the idea of releasing what we have done on a couple of occasions with varied interest from the team, but a decision was never made.  These last several months I've seen no activity at all.  This is disappointing for me having been a part of it for a couple years... and I'm sure it is equally as disappointing to the rest of the Team.  I have absolutely nothing against the Team, they have done a lot of work and I hope they will harbor me no ill will for what I am about to do...

I have rounded up all the HL:S:HD 2.0 beta files from my hard drives that I could and I've uploaded it for you to download.  The pack includes several additional models, updated textures, some GUI fixes and a few sound files.  Many of you have waited a very long time and I feel it is the least we could do, if this project is going to die, to give you what we have.  This is not a completed pack, there are still a few remaining bugs (minor, bug seemingly unfixable) and a couple missing models that were causing problems (noted in readme) but beyond that, there is a lot more content then version 1.0 had.  Call this 1.5, lol.  Whatever it is, I am offering it of my own accord, this is not an HL:S:HD "Official" release.  The Team has had no input into this decision.

It is released AS IS and is NOT SUPPORTED in any way.  Also, this is NOT the HD/SD Pack posted here (that was version 1.0).

The Readme was pulled from a very old build, so I'm not sure how up to date the information in it is.  I updated as much as I could remember, but if you notice something I missed please let me know so I can fix it.  A lot of work by a lot of people has gone into this and I want to make sure everyone is credited accurately.  Without further ado here is the link.  You may redistribute as you wish so long as proper credit is given to the HL:S:HD Team here at HIT.

The pack includes:

  • A.I. and Romka's updated model meshes and textures
  • Numerous community updated model meshes and textures
  • d'keesto's improved map textures pack
  • Red Slug's HD container models and textures (item you find when you break open a crate)
  • A few other items I'm going completely blank on at the moment (but will edit in when I remember them)

If you manage to fix one of the bugs, please post it here so everyone else can benefit.  Thank you and God bless.





Some of these shots are old.  You'll notice the Scientist's glasses are transparent in-game for instance.

For weapons you can use Stone's pack.

That would be unnecessary.  Same weapons, same models, same textures.

When he initially released his pack, it used the same skins as ours with the only exception being the M4 (we used a different model).  Unless he has released an updated pack and you are referring to it (please link) then they are the same.

I will post some comparison shots after I get home from work.

This pack, Stone used some good textures and bump mapping so i guess that could be used as separeted link to download.

Same link as I provided in my previous post.  Like I said, I'll post some comparison shots as soon as I get the chance.  Our weapons also used higher res skins and some bump mapping.

Let me do some digging.  These are all old files I dug up from an old hard drive.  In the later stages of our pack we DID have bump-mapped weapons, but I lost a lot of that during a crash/reformat.  This looked like the latest version, but it may not be.

I'll get back to you.  I'm working 12's right now, so time is not something I get a lot of.  Nonetheless, I'll let you know.

I thought about that a while back... why wouldn't you be able to? Using VTF tool and the like... and plus, it's the SOURCE engine.

You can, easily.

It'd just be a lot work.

And you'd need to make the new effects for most of the models. Phong/bumpmaps/etc,

I could try to work around creating alpha maps for textures to work with phong if needed.
