Remember in Nova Prospect, when the lights are turned off, and then the combine throw those neat-o red flares out? This shows you how to do it for Half-Life 1.

There might actually be a better way of doing this, but I don't know about it. Oh, and, I wrote the tutorial at like 4:00 in the morning, so it might be a little confusing.

Dangit, I swore I'd avoid all those embarrasing mistakes on my first example map! It should be fixed now.

Works now! Dun worry about it too much, happens constantly ;)

Pretty neat stuff--flare effect looks great imo--, though I never saw the original scene you're trying to emualte.

The only things I can think to possibly improve it would be to perhaps make the flares a bit bigger, and possibly add a smoke sprite for each flare.

Good job!

Well, in the original, there isn't any smoke. It's not really a flare, in the usual sense, but more like a Combine version of those glow stick things, except it's a lot brighter. I don't know if there's any real-life counterpart, so I just called it a flare.

They aren't exactly HL2 flares, those were a little darker, but close enough!

They look great being in hl though. Keep up the good work.

Now make heat disortion for hl1 ^^
