This is a modification made with Spirit of Half-Life. You will not need Spirit to play it. It's a film based upon the poem 'Preludes' written by T.S. Eliot. It's quite short, yet its a pretty hefty download. Please read the readme.

I liked it, hope to see more like this in the future.

Erm, need preludes.wad :
avatar The Mad Carrot says: 6th July 2004, 09:37 AM
Hmm got it. The zip file placed preludes.wad in the Half-Life root directory, instead of preludes directory.
avatar AJ says: 6th July 2004, 10:04 AM
Yes sorry about that everyone. Preludes.wad is included in the zip, you just need to move it.

It was good, but alittle slow...
avatar jaardsi says: 6th July 2004, 16:16 PM
and the sounds were too loud
avatar AJ says: 6th July 2004, 20:40 PM
Another warning: Please turn off your computer speakers, the sounds shouldn't be playing. As for the slow part, I forgot to increase the speed of the trains when they went through the slower parts. Sorry all!

i do not have spirit installed
avatar AJ says: 7th July 2004, 07:10 AM
You don't need Spirit. The dll's are included.
avatar hazardous! says: 7th July 2004, 08:22 AM
What's that supposed to be?
I didn't like it at all. It's 10 megabytes big though 5 or less would have been enough.
You inlcuded thousands of unnecessary files. The only map files that are required are the .bsp files.
You included your savegames and your config file.
There is nothing happening at all, basically you're just reading this strange story.
The r_speeds are super high. There's no detail at all and the r_speeds in the tunnel with the dripping water are like 1300.
You could've done this with 300-400.
It was already mentioned that the camera is too slow. Plus, it does, for some reason, move very laggy.
I didn't like it.

why are yuo looking at the r_speeds in someones mod anyway?
avatar hazardous! says: 7th July 2004, 12:11 PM
Because my pc sux.
R_speeds are important.
I know that it's a poem, but why did he make those maps.
There's nothing cool, just a village and some text.
Of course I'm critical.
avatar AJ says: 8th July 2004, 01:43 AM
The movie is my vision of what 'Preludes' the poem would look like. Read the poem. It describes a twisted world in which human emotions, such as love and compassion are obliterated by monotony. The world depicted in Eliot's poems is grimy and sordid ruled by the parameters of mundane routine and robotic movements. His poems are set during and after the industrial revolution.
I am aware of the r_speeds issue. It runs fine on most computers. I did however forget to remove the save and config files and I apoligise for that. Your're entitled to your own opinion.
avatar AJ says: 8th July 2004, 01:44 AM
The reason it runs 'laggy' is because of your computer. So this is warning three for others: Make sure your computer is half-decent.
avatar hazardous! says: 8th July 2004, 09:37 AM
I doubt that it's because of my pc.
The fps is quite ok before the tunnel, only the camera moves strangely.
A tip to reduce your r_speeds: Your second level has quite dense fog, the actual distance of view is very short. The zhlts have a feature called 'maxvisdistance' use it with the same distance of the fog to reduce the r_seeds.
avatar Habboi says: 17th December 2004, 10:39 AM
Well it has an interesting plot and ssssh hazard just cause yuor comp sucks
avatar rowleybob says: 12th February 2005, 07:29 AM
Dammit! I need to download Spirit!
avatar 23-down says: 19th November 2011, 00:47 AM
Hey people..

I can't believe that there is a spirit hl1 mod out there with no active download links. So well it's not out there but it was released once does anyone still has it maybe burned and safely stored at some old backup disks?

I would love to get this mod up & running to play it as it seems fantastic!!

If someone still has it please post it in here or write me a pm.

Thx 23-down
