Media Release is supposed to be released sometime this evening. If not today, then this week definitely.

For those who don't know, black mesa (source) is a total conversion mod of Half Life 2, aiming to remake Half Life on the brilliant Source engine. Unfortunately, their website was hacked this summer (and several times previously) and their old media is not on their website. some of it can be found at ModDB.

Sorry for posting this before its actually released, but i will be too excited to post here when it comes out. So for those also eagerly awaiting this mod, or just hearing about it, and interested, keep checking their page for the major media update.

Didn't Valve already do this? I bought the silver edition of HL2 on Steam and one of my available games is Half Life: Source.

Black Mesa: Source was built and founded on the principle that Half-Life: Source did not do the original title enough credit, regardless of the true intentions laid out with the release of Half-Life: Source by Valve Software. Subsequently in November 2004, Black Mesa: Source was founded and set out to reconstruct the original title, giving it the new environments, models, and abilities it deserved on the Source engine. This total conversion will not require Half-Life: Source installed on your system to play, only a legitimate and working version of Half-Life 2. At the present time, Valve Software is not associated or involved with the development of this project.

Here is a small list of planned features of Black Mesa: Source:

* Redesign and overhaul of all 18 chapters, the hazard course and deathmatch levels of the original Half-Life and Half-Life DeathMatch games.
* Models now take advantage of increased polycount limits and normal mapping technology making deadly opponents and friendly coworkers appear more real.
* A completely original soundtrack and music library bringing Half-Life's themes and feelings to life in the new sounds engine built into the Source Engine.
* Artifical Intelligence that will hunt you by sight and sound.
* Normal, bump and specular maps built into textures giving flat surfaces a new, more dynamic look.
* Co-operative mode, allowing you and your friends to play through Black Mesa: Source together.
* The entire cast and characters that the world fell in love with more beauty than ever before, bringing truth to the saying, "if looks could kill..."
* A multiplayer mode allowing for deathmatch and team deathmatch experience with the complete Half-Life 1/Black Mesa: Source Aresonal at your disposal.
* A priority on gameplay and immersion factors such as sounds, functionality and interaction.
* Built by developers who's passion is seen through the quality of their work.


Think I may have to take a look.

NO. What valve did was simply a port. they didn't remake anything from the ground up. the only new features were source water, and source lighting / skymaps.

go to the forums or the moddb profile and you will see what im talking about.

also they're releasing 87 clips of media according to natedgreat3 (a developer)
