Steam's European prices include the VAT, don't they? So the games aren't much more expensive here than in the USA if you don't count tax. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I play it occasionally. You need to play it with friends or it's boring.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members of TWHL who have tolerated my bull**** throughout the years and who have helped me with my mapping and who have listened when I needed to ask or say something.

Better yet, get VHLT and func_detail your brushwork instead of func_walling it.

It has never crashed for me. I find it easy to use, and I'm definitely not an artist. I've never used Illustrator.

Around here Halloween is for children dressing up as monsters/other scary things and going around asking for candy. I miss doing that. Nostalgia I suppose.

Dude, pirating games and software is looked down upon in this community.
By parts of it, yes. Parts of this community also look down upon homosexuality or religion or the very idea of evolution. Not everyone will agree with you on any particular subject. Please try not to judge people.

Guys, you're being assholes. If you don't want to play, don't play. Don't ruin it for those (if there are any) who feel like playing. Shut up and ignore this thread, it's obviously not meant for you.

I thought Daubster would announce the servers. I guess he forgot about it.

To get your map on the server, upload it to the appropriate folder (css, czero or cs16) at

To get the server to play your map, connect to the server and write map name_of_your_map in chat (say: map cs_awesome). The map will play for the next 20 minutes.

Game server addresses:
Condition 0:

No fast DL.

Obligatory download of maps before the tournament begins:

The tournament begins in one hour and twenty minutes from now. Even if you only play a single map, you'll have a chance for the prize. The more frags you collect throughout the tournament, the higher are your chances of winning. In order to be able to win, your player name must contain your TWHL username.

HTTP downloading is enabled, but the server has limited bandwidth. I'm about to upgrade the up width by 1500% so soon it won't be a problem.

Thanks for all the submissions, keep them coming :)

wish i made beerfort sooner. It's always a good map to have around.
The teamplay version is one my favourite maps. It's pretty ugly and the design isn't much to hang in the Christmas tree but the concept is great.

What are some useful commands we can use?
The most useful console commands for admins (I gave you admin privileges) are amxmodmenu, amx_help, amx_map, amx_cvar (changes a cvar), amx_rcon (executes a command on the server - the only way to change mp_teamplay), amx_kick, amx_ban, amx_vote (starts a vote) and gal_startvote (forces a map vote and change). For players, the most useful commands are the console command listmaps and the chat commands timeleft and rtv (if enough players write rtv in the chat, a map vote is started).
Also, are you looking into getting the map rotation to work properly?
Should be fixed now.
Could we make this at 7pm GMT?
7pm is fine by me. Is everyone interested fine with 7pm (19:00 UTC)?

It's always a good idea to show some of the work that has already been done, other than story and ideas, to create interest and to show that you're serious about the mod. I recommend you post a few screen shots, renders, concept art or videos.

I'm definitely up for BrainBread some day. Too bad Flat-Life is Windows only. But ChickenFist was considerate enough to release the source code, so I might try compiling it myself. Flat-Life's great.

We have a Half-Life Deathmatch server!


The server is located in Sweden and has been tested by Joe, Dim and Atom and game play is smooth in Europe and eastern United States. It currently runs a few of TWHL's highest rated maps. If you want a map to be on the server, write and I'll install it. Later on I'll create a web page where you can pick any HLDM map from TWHL and the server will automatically install that map. If you want admin privileges, send me your Steam ID (join a game server, write status in console, it should look like this: STEAM_0:1:23456789).
