... Yes, I know that FakeFactory Cinematic exists, but this is a different animal.

Pretty sure valve made it easy to add to them to anything that uses steamworks.

Fakefactory looks far superior in every way :(

But its a nice update regardless for those running stock.

:rolleyes:

You can CHOOSE which character you want to use as Alyx. The original, the HD version OR, the Adriana Lima version.

I would still argue, all his other characters still look like ****. I hate his cloth textures, the world looks nice but the man needs to stay away from character models.

His choice :) His preference :) His mods :)

Personally, I keep a lot of the original models, but the texture updates he has done are amazing.

He has gone for a darker theme with CM10 and introduced iron sights with 10.10 (love them) and I think it works great.

You can compare the 2 videos.

Wow, that is a night and day difference.

because those achievements are already there, just hidden from plain sight, valve made then, but never cared enough to actually update the game to add them in

found them in early 2008, HL2 E1 has them as well

Saw someone commenting that the one on the left simply wasnt running max settings, but theres a few features that simply dont exist in the original HL2 that you can see, the biggest example is when he uses the torch in the dark with the antlion, and can see the torch shadows on the rocks behind them, anyone who is a fan of HL2 and the episodes knows that feature didnt exist until EP2.
Though, the very first part, I am sure the reflections are disabled or something, but I cant remember whether that floor was reflective, either way I might check it out

The Half Life 2 update gets automatically updated when you install HL2? I have HL2, just not installed on this machine.
