Default Half Life 2: Episode One Question

Ive stated a few times I despised this game

But...despite what I said, im going to play it again with a different perspective. Hopefully I will enjoy it.

But first i'd like to have a few good mods to play with.

Singleplayer. No Multiplayer please.

So, give me some recommendations?

I added the high resolution texture packs. Is that the kind of mod you are looking for?

This looks good, Not sure which versions it works on
I never did find any texture pack type mods for Half-Life when I went searching a while back

You what's confusing: There's Cinematic mod v4.xx for HL2
Then there is a v1.3 Ep1 Cinematic mod.


I got the Ep1 mod.

I didn't see anything that said that v4.xx was for ep1.

The problem is my menu is in German

I'm also trying to finish before ep2 gets released. I used the vista hot "fix." But all that does is give you fewer textures so your game won't crash because of Vista mem management issues.

Anyone have a link to the right version for ep1?

I D/L'ed FakeFactory's Cinematic Mod (v4.0 Full) - for both Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2:Episode One from here. Hope that helps.
