If you have 9, you can just download the update to 9.5.

I believe the creator said that is the last mod he will likely release as he has reached the limitations of the engine in many respects.

try CM4 then CM9.5 and see which you prefer

CM4 has REAL Alyx + co but with better (an understatement) textures but CM8 and above everyone is pretty and young looking. + the episode 1+2 effects for HL2 (the first one) are in 9.

CM4 has Naked Alyx

you can select the default characters, including Alex, using the included character pimper program, in 9.5. but i like the look of the hd characters. more realistic looking to me.

Ferrari, I seriously doubt it will be playable on a 32-bit OS. I think it's designed to use as many resources as efficiently as possible.

Regarding that CM10 picture, is it just me or does Alyx now look like Michael Jackson

I know he was going for the Adriana Lima look earlier, and did pretty good. Not so sure about the new one, but then again, it always looks better in-game
