About You

Name: Andrew Lucas
Age: 27
Hometown: NA
Relationships: None. I was never in love my whole life, ever.
Occupation: CPP Programmer.
Current goal(s): Publish my first two books, finish writing my three planned books, finish my Half-Life mod.
Politics: I've lost faith in this long ago.
Religion: I have my own beliefs in and relating to God. I pray to God to show me the way, whenever I feel the presence of evil or I feel lost and confused. God has saved my soul numerous times and helped me atone for my sins/misdeeds.

Favourite Things

Food: Beef, pancakes, fried eggs with bacon, apples, bananas, milkshakes, chocolate.
Hot drink: Decaf coffee, yogurt drinks, green label tea.
Cold drink: Water.
Snacks: Potato chips, cheesecakes, nuts like hazelnuts and peanuts.
Movies: Dark City, The Thing, Alien, Jacob's Ladder.
Videogames: Half-Life and it's expansions, Half-Life 2 and it's episodes, Spyro, Ratchet & Clank.
Music: Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Linkin Park, Marilyn Manson, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Temple of the Dog, Cathedral.
Other: Exercise, reading books on psychology and science fiction books. Re-reading the works of Silvano Arieti. Trying to do right by God.

Disliked/Hated Things

Food: Ironically enough I love a lot of foods I can't eat.
Hot drink: Anything with too much sugar in it.
Cold drink: Anything with too much sugar in it.
Snacks: Again, I love a lot of snack foods I can't eat.
Movies: Shitty remakes of classic movies that don't need remakes, and the dumbest movie I can remember hating is Legion of Fire: Killer Ants.
Videogames: Raven City
Music: I can't stand modern pop music, or most rap music either. Love songs are particularly annoying for me.
Other: Loud noises and constant noise that wrecks your concentration. Large crowds of people in cramped spaces, because that activates my agoraphobia even more than just going out for work every day. Being tired most days beyond just the normal tiredness that comes with the burdens of life. Accidentally eating some food that end up making me feel sick or even worse. I greatly fear Soul Murderer-type people and narcissistic predatory types who have a sixth sense for sensing people who are vulnerable to their manipulation. The HD packs for Half-Life. Oh, and the original MP5 view model from Half-Life 1. And the original shotgun's arm.

in Fake coordinate Post #344003
I have reproduced the Airstrike tutorial save my coordinate Table is like a map on the wall with the rulers going up and down and left to right.
All is right, the mortar field drops the bomb on the target defined by the momentary rot btn. The y value is perfect. The problem I run into is that the ruler which goes from left to right indicates a negative value of x to the mortar.
Well, that’s not a big deal but I’d like that when the ruler is on the right, the mortar strikes the ground ahead on its right side.
I’ve tried to amend the compasses, the distance, rotating, flipping the mortar field or the ground itself ; when I hit then button the bomb is dropped on the opposite side that indicates the x ruler.
What can I do ?

That the JACK files in Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life\valve\maps if ever ...

One of my colleagues is from Chennai and he and his wife make the most incredible food. I don't know if that's south-India enough, but if your mom's cooking is similar, I'm very jealous :^_^:

Definitely gonna have to finish that feature one day. Right now it only supports this on a single texture.
It's gonna affect any texture beginning with water or !, but I'm thinking of potential applications of this elsewhere too.

Since this works by modifying the texture's pixels in real-time (NOT affecting the actual WAD file itself), I think we can accomplish real-time moss growth, and potentially many other things!

About You

Name: Ezry B.
Age: 20 (seconds)
Hometown: Smalltown rural ohio (yeehaw)
Relationships: Currently in one, it's lovely
Occupation: Self-employed
Current goal(s): Graduate University & get my degree in accounting
Politics: Force is the ultimate authority. Nothing given has value. In order to defend Western values and assure the god-given rights of men we must defend ourselves from those of ill-intent, militarily and culturally. The West is losing its sense of meaning and identity as globalists/postmodernists develop a hatred of their own individuality and freedoms. The people of the Western world are so satiated with freedoms that they are begging governments to come and strip them away. Their governments have grown large and powerful. Their power is exploited by corporations to serve the interests not of individuals, but of consolidated groups. Our media, supply lines and many major companies are controlled by Chinese interests, the governance of whom are enemies of freedom and human rights. Hong Kong, one of the few bastions of liberty and free market capitalism is being crushed by the authoritarian regime. The United Nations, too, is dominated by Chinese interests, its members refusing to recognize the existence of Taiwan. Our politics are being arbitrarily divided. Deus Ex was right. The European Union is an MJ-12 front to destroy any semblance of individual nations or cultures, erasing the borders between to create one titanic super-government. Our culture is a sewer. We have lewd media. We're sexualizing young girls to the point where even I have a problem with it. Half-Life's outlook on unchecked immigration is bleak, but accurate. Donald Trump is simultaneously a bumbling imbecile with ADHD but also a cultural icon and hero for free market capitalism and the American identity. Socialism is an ideology dominated by upper-class white elitists with unfounded moral superiority. The government does not give us our rights; rather, their purpose is to defend them. The United Nations has an incorrect definition of what a "human right" is; they define the "right to work" as a human right, yet they do nothing as governments across the globe are shutting down business for the sake of stopping the coronavirus -- last I checked, rights are pre-ordained by our Creator (whoever you may believe that to be), so either these rights don't actually exist or the UN is weak and unwilling to stand for anything. Our systems of social security are built off of the backs of children, yet the people of this nation see no duty to reproduce and ensure future generations will continue to contribute to these systems. The only real human right that exists is the right to property. Sex is a spectrum. Gender is a man-made construct, as is race. Dancing is a violating of human rights. Free healthcare isn't the worst idea in the world, but a much better one is to destroy the concept of "health insurance." Personal responsibility is a greater value than utilitarianism 9/10 times. Ayn Rand had some funny ideas, but also some really good ones, too. Carl Benjamin was a good politician. Pedophiles are trying to co-opt the LGBT movement and how I feel about it depends on whether the science is in on the whole "born this way" argument for them. Sam Esmail had some brilliant political commentary in his tv show Mr Robot (which may be the best TV show ever made) but his Twitter is a garbage heap. Did I mention that nothing given has value? Starship Troopers was unironically the ideal model for society. Nationalism isn't inherently bad - dare one say, the idea of seeing nations as individual self-determining entities is inherently good! Communism is conspiracy to commit mass murder.
Religion: Atheist Christian

Favourite Things

Food: Chicken (blessed gains bird)
Hot drink: Warm water
Cold drink: Milkshakes (forbidden)

Disliked/Hated Things

in How to add spectator option to existing mod Post #343989
I think it is possible - Jumbot is I assume a server only mod (if not this probably won't work).
If you use it with an up to date client.dll, you should be able to write a plugin that loads and passes through to the Jumbot .dll, but in your plugin capture the spectator commands and copy their logic from hl.dll

Hopefully that makes sense.

Ah of course! And the same should work for sprites as well.

And yeah it doesn't look like client.dll has any per-entity callback (looks like they're mostly per-frame). Too bad but better than nothing.

About You

Name: Those who know, know.
Age: 24
Hometown: Wee shitehole in southern Scotland
Relationships: 2 terrible ones previously, currently living with my GF in London. All's good!
Occupation: Lighting technician for a lighting rental company. Hope to become a freelancer within the next couple years and get my ass on tour.
Current goal(s): At some point when I have expendable income, I want to start experimenting with 3D printing and VR. Current events are showing me that you can't really do any form of training wrt. manual labour when working from home, but you could learn how to repair and inspect things in VR. Problem is, just like with mapping, I'll furiously focus on a project for a day max, then struggle to find any motivation to continue on with it and procrastinate... think I'll need to look at that at some point. Not now, maybe sometime tomorrow. At some point many, many years down the line, I may want to revisit my university degree.
Politics: Left wing, but not to an obscene degree. Disagree with identity politics, something that seems to be becoming more and more prevalent. Pro Scottish Independence, but similarly to Archie, not because of nationalism.
Religion: I'm atheist through and through, but completely respect and acknowledge how important religions are to culture and society. No time for those that use it to justify hatred or cause harm onto others, though.

Favourite Things

Food: I'm pretty much a human dustbin, I'll eat anything. A good burger, chilli or spag bol will go down a treat.
Hot drink: Can't beat an English breakfast tea. A flat white or black coffee will also go down a treat.
Cold drink: Passionfruit Rubicon. Get in me.
Snacks: Insane sweet tooth. Tiramisu, a good chocolate fondant, cake, anything with "Ben & Jerry's" on it...
Movies: Anything that is tongue in cheek, self aware or incredibly atmospheric and immersive. Loved Blade Runner 2049 and Joker, but really have a soft spot for Robocop 1 & 2, Dredd, The Matrix and the likes of Evil Dead / Army of Darkness. I struggle to watch the same movie twice within the space of a few years.
Videogames: Used to be really into FPS games, but have found myself playing a load of sandbox games, like Stormworks, Factorio and Cities: Skylines. I love Metroid but haven't played it in ages, still waiting for Prime 4...
Music: Listening to a lot of video game soundtracks and the likes The Prodigy / Pendulum when I was younger made me listen to dance music and electronic music a lot more than contemporary and traditional styles, save for a few artists. Listening to a lot of deep Detroit house & techno ATM.
Other: I sing, a bit pitchy.

Disliked/Hated Things

Food: Aniseed, (most) fish & fennel can get tae. And miso, anything that tastes like I've just swallowed seawater is nothing short of torture.
Hot drink: Anything sugary. Don't know why, but stuff like sweet tea, lemsip etc. makes me gag.
Cold drink: Tomato juice. No.
Snacks: Anything with coconut. The creator of Bounty is a sociopath.
Movies: Generic schlock, horror, and films that give away their entire story in the trailer. Really can't handle films that are just jumpscares.
Videogames: MOBAs, card games and schlock.
Music: Modern trap / rap, and any modern song that samples an entire riff of chorus from another with little to no alteration. Will.I.Am is really guilty of this, it just screams a combination of lack of talent and relying on people's memories of older songs to boost it's popularity. Sampling is such an incredible thing when done correctly, but copy & pasting entire segments of songs is cheap. Again, not massively fussed about contemporary music.

Hah, I've disabled that t long time ago (although thinking how intrusive are apps these days they certainly have some history about my location somewhere).
Wow some of you guys are really prolific travelers. I can't imagine myself going to so far-away countries like Japan. I'm more of a stay at home do personal projects guy, and there's like an internal tension meter that goes up and up and I have to reset it by doing some sort of trip. Usually these come unplanned.

Last year I've visited Austria with a camper van (basically just pure luck to be invited by some friends and I'm grateful for that). The landscapes were stunning. We went with a steam train up to the top of Schafberg from where you can see multiple lakes. There are lots of bird nests on those cliffs so you always get to see flocks. We decided to go back on foot. While going down the mountain a storm caught us. I could hear thunders extremely close, some of them crackling. There were a few near strikes. There was nowhere to hide, the only thing you could do is continue. The wind was blowing furiously and you could sort of see that all this mist was actually clouds hitting on the side of the mountain. I've always had this weird fear of entering a cloud. In conclusion, I've never been so close to shitting my pants in my life.

This winter I've picked up a new "passion": snowboarding. I went to a one week snowboard camp. I've got almost all equipment besides boots and the board which I plan on buying next season (I said it's better to rent to try out different boards while learning). So this gives me the reason to go around in the country and visit different ski resorts, and once I have more experience I'll probably want to go to the Alps at some point.
But man, it was not easy. My butt and knees were killing me the first few times. And I still fall a lot. I'm afraid I'll forget everything by next season though :(.

I too want to visit Scotland at some point. Preferably by motorcycle for which I don't have yet a permit, and the pandemic surely shit on my plans of getting one in the next few months.

Explain. How are you compiling? What are you using to compile? Are there any errors in the compile log? Etc.

This game is amazing, it's the best thing Valve made since Portal 1
I thought Portal 2 was the actual masterpiece.

Alright, so I've spoiled some scenes for myself. Oh my god does it look gorgeous. And I'd probably just have to wait until autumn or december to play this in VR. Perhaps equipments will drop down in price until then.
I wonder what other games will come out on Source 2 and if we'll have access to the tools (Hammer) soon.

That's really nice of you man, thanks a lot. I'll send you a PM with my discord info.

And thanks for the information, I'll definitely play around with it.

No problem, lol. Just contact me on Discord or something and I'll try to send it tomorrow, I don't think I can do it tonight. I'm too lazy to upload to MEGA and whatever. <w<

As for the source code, in case you want it:
Then get Visual Studio 2019 Community and compile that thing. It's more straightforward nowadays compared to several years ago. :)

ok so the non vr version is in the game just sux XD
Thanks for the quick response and the advice about Spirit. It was new for me so I had no idea how well it worked.

Yea I should be able to do that with the code. Uhm, can I be a bit rude and ask if you could actually do that for me, and sent me the new client.dll (or is it hl.dll?)

Sorry for being so straightforward, but I currently don't have the source code of the game but also I remember a long time ago I wasn't really able to compile the code for whatever reason.

Sure I can give it a try, but if it's not too much to ask it'd be a great help if you could do that for me. If not, no worries man, you've already helped me a lot.
I think you can actually remove the effect from the code, if you're going to do that.
// Raise monster off the floor one unit, then drop to floor
if ( pev->movetype != MOVETYPE_FLY && !FBitSet( pev->spawnflags, SF_MONSTER_FALL_TO_GROUND ) )
    pev->origin.z += 1;
    DROP_TO_FLOOR ( ENT(pev) );
    // Try to move the monster to make sure it's not stuck in a brush.
    if (!WALK_MOVE ( ENT(pev), 0, 0, WALKMOVE_NORMAL ) )
        ALERT(at_error, "Monster %s stuck in wall--level design error", STRING(pev->classname));
        pev->effects = EF_BRIGHTFIELD;
Around line 2085, in monsters.cpp

Remove the line with pev->effects = EF_BRIGHTFIELD; and you should get rid of the yellow aura.

Also, if you can, please try to avoid using Spirit of Half-Life. Lots of things don't work, lots of things don't, and depending on the version of it, chances are, it might break the HL campaign.
"using the Spirit engine"
Admer456 Admer456If it ain't broken, don't fox it!
Spirit of Half-Life has a lot of issues depending on the version that you use. I've not tried it recently, but if I recall it is not possible to play through the whole of the HL1 campaign using the Spirit engine. A lot of features can glitch out and certain entities don't behave the way they should.

Spirit is best used for full mods where you have control over the entities/entity setups and can adapt to the quirks that go with it.

For Blue Shift:

There isn't any official source code that was published for them, so yeah, all there is are community efforts to replicate it as authentically as possible.

There's this sprite effect that you get when an NPC is (partly) inside a solid object, basically the NPC gets surrounded by yellow flying dots. I know why it's there, I'm just wondering if you can get rid of it somehow. It's for some edits I made to the single-player of Half-Life 1, and repositioning the monsters isn't the solution in my case (long story).

Thanks! :)

Edit: I learned Spirit Half-Life has the spawnflag "No yellow blobs", but that raises my next question, can I play the whole HL1 campaign in Spirit: Half-Life or will I see a lot of changes?
