AvP2 was awesome. AvP1 was good too but the lack of real campaign was disappointing.

I liked AVP2. It was among my first video games along with Half Life.

I was surprised as well, it's actually cheaper here than in US.

AvP was much better than the second IMO. I remember playing it on Director's Cut without saves, now that was a challenge. Can't believe how scared I was back then, when I heard a facehugger for the first time Good times.

It hasn't aged very well. Levels are so bland.

I can't wait for Colonial Marines & the latest AVP! I've been playing MW2 and get bored with killing humans. Stick me on an alien planet fighting monsters with MW2 updated graphics.. yeah baby!

The only thing I remember in AVP2 was the aliens denting doors when they were on the other side of them trying to get through. I thought that was revolutionary for the time. I spent way more time on the original AVP but from what I remember AVP2 was ok.

Awesome.

Updates to Aliens vs. Predator Classic 2000 have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:

Aliens vs. Predator Classic 2000:


Proper widescreen support. Previously the game allowed non-4:3 video modes (e.g. 1920x1080) but just rendered a stretched 4:3 image. Now the game renders at the correct aspect ratio (e.g. 5:4, 16:9, 16:10), with the vertical field-of-view remaining fixed and the horizontal field-of-view changing accordingly. (i.e. 16:9 modes now render more to the sides than a 4:3 mode).

By popular demand, added an “-unlimitedsaves” command line option. By launching the game with -unlimitedsaves in the command line, players can now save as many times as they like, rather than being restricted to a set number of saves per level. To set your command line options, please right-click on the game in Steam’s “My games” browser and select “Properties” and then “Set Launch Options…”. Alternatively you can edit the command line options directly if you are using a shortcut to the game exe.

Replaced timer code with a new high-resolution version for improved accuracy.

Frame-rate now locks to a maximum of 120 to fix gameplay issues when running at very high rates (e.g. when vsync is disabled).

Mouse sensitivity/accuracy improvements for mice with a high poll rate.

Fix for invalid characters in device name in video resolution menu causing rendering problems.

Fix for crash on machines without a sound card / where the sound drivers are invalid. (Game will now run correctly with no sound.)

Nice!

I guess the widescreen squashing was the cause of the mouse X and Y axis not syncing...

You know what, I played the game last night and everything seemed the same to me. Is the HUD supposed to still be really big with the widescreen fix?
