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.

Erm, need preludes.wad :
Commented 19 years ago2004-07-06 08:37:56 UTC Comment #2596
Hmm got it. The zip file placed preludes.wad in the Half-Life root directory, instead of preludes directory.
Commented 19 years ago2004-07-06 09:04:34 UTC Comment #2597
Yes sorry about that everyone. Preludes.wad is included in the zip, you just need to move it.

It was good, but alittle slow...
Commented 19 years ago2004-07-06 15:16:24 UTC Comment #2607
and the sounds were too loud
Commented 19 years ago2004-07-06 19:40:30 UTC Comment #2608
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
Commented 19 years ago2004-07-07 06:10:49 UTC Comment #2610
You don't need Spirit. The dll's are included.
Commented 19 years ago2004-07-07 07:26:20 UTC Comment #2612
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 did it double post?
Commented 19 years ago2004-07-07 07:48:17 UTC Comment #2615
its a poem by ts eliot dumbass. he said that at the start. dude, your so critical
Commented 19 years ago2004-07-07 07:48:52 UTC Comment #2616
why are yuo looking at the r_speeds in someones mod anyway?
Commented 19 years ago2004-07-07 11:11:51 UTC Comment #2617
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.

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.

The reason it runs 'laggy' is because of your computer. So this is warning three for others: Make sure your computer is half-decent.
Commented 19 years ago2004-07-08 08:37:06 UTC Comment #2631
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.

Well it has an interesting plot and ssssh hazard just cause yuor comp sucks

Dammit! I need to download Spirit!
Commented 12 years ago2011-11-19 00:47:28 UTC Comment #19545
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
