[IMG]http://media.moddb.com/images/mods/1/1/144/06spec.jpg[/IMG] [HR][/HR] [B][U]The Specialists[/U][/B] is a HL1 mod that is a fast-paced shoot-em-up matrix style death-match game, with more than 30 weapons and corresponding attachments/styles (laser sight, scope, flashlight, silencer, and akimbo) for each, plus the choice of going at people completely unarmed with nothing but your adept knowledge of kungfu, the game certainly isn't lacking in variety. Along with that, the game has a decent amount of nicely crafted default maps and a hell of a lot more custom ones from the now dead community. But, what does this game have for you? For the [I]{[uLtRa1337QuAkEpRoS]}[/I] the game can reach ridiculous levels of speed, and if you take the time to learn all the little tricks of the game, you can dominate an entire server of people with just your hands and feet, and then fly with your stunt skills across the map with others probably calling you a hacker at that point. [I](Its even recommended to set your FOV to tunnel-vision mode!)[/I] For the Call of Duty bro, you can handle alot of awesome guns, you can 360 no-scope scrubs with your Barret .50, or wreck shit with your USAS-12, plus you can put lasers and shit on them, cool! [I](DISCLAIMER: You can't put camos on your guns, lame bro!)[/I] For the Role-play people, the game even has a plethora of addons that make it possible to role-play, the addons have all you'd expect from an RP script [I](along with a large amount of really good RP maps, for gold-source anyways)[/I] plus more, ever wanted to trade and sell stocks on a matrix game? Now you can! Though I don't know how you can keep a stable RP when one of the most powerful weapons in the game [I](kungfu)[/I] is hard-coded in, but hey, good luck! Even if the above doesn't really apply to you [I](WoW Nerds)[/I] you can still have great fun on the game by just playing with friends or messing around (I.E. DMing on RP servers). Now to the [I]bad[/I] parts... [B]1.[/B] The Specialists is understandably old, so if you can't find a working link to one of those cool RP maps, don't shit yourself, its pretty common for links to die after 5 or so years. [B]2.[/B] Most of the people left over from the dead husk of the community are A) Extremely good at the game, B) Massive Trolls, and C) Amazingly Elitist, its easy to avoid them once you learn of them though. [B]3.[/B] The game is dead, that's the point of me advertising it, because I think the game is still pretty good. Regardless, if you see something like 8 servers with only 2 populated, don't be surprised. [I](Who knows, it may become populated again)[/I] [B]4.[/B] The main web-site itself is dead, the people who supported the mod have probably died or something, so don't expect a miraculous update. [B]5.[/B] If you're into that [I]~~super serious tnb rp~~[/I] stuff, you won't like TSRP [I](The Specialists Role-Play)[/I], as most of it is gang wars, cops vs robbers, and etc. Thats basically it, hope to actually see people playing! [I](DISCLAIMER2: You'll probably get your ass kicked until you either learn how to play the game, or stop playing with the aforementioned elitist pros.)[/I] [I](DISCLAIMER3: If you are one of the aforementioned elitist pros, I really didn't mean to offend, but personal experience has shown me as such.)[/I] [HR][/HR] [B]Links[/B]: Mod-db page - [URL]http://www.moddb.com/mods/the-specialists/[/URL] Apollo RP's Forums (Main RP script is here, plus a place to get RP maps.) - [URL]http://apollorp.org/[/URL]
The Specialists is really just Max Payne multiplayer. [editline]30th November 2011[/editline] aka best mod
I love this, especially playing on the lobby map with friends and a shit ton of bots.
Best half-life 1 mod of ALL TIME. That old zombie mod server was seriously one of the most entertaining things ever. The mod kind of had a large learning curve surprisingly.
I use to play this all the time, until the DM server i played shutdown and all that was left was empty servers, and RP servers. Defiantly glad to see this on here tho, it was so much fun.
TSRP and Zombie Mode was the coolest part of The Specialists.
used to play the shit out of the zombie mode......well it was either that or RP.....2 servers.... Now it's dead, right?
There's still a couple servers.
Hours of fighting bots in rp_Mecklenburg with friends, great mod
I ported Max Payne and one of the bosses from Max Payne into The Specialists. The boss is the one you fight while he was getting a blowjob and his pants were down. In case you guys want them: [url]http://filesmelt.com/dl/ts1.zip[/url] If you want to play as them, you have to add max and muerte to that thing when you start the server.

Trolling on RP servers with my bud was always fun, miss those days :( Fucking job and life and etc..
Used to RP on this all the time. I can't help but feel though that the last update it had really hurt it.
I used to play this a bunch with my brother, one of the best HL mods
God I had so much fun with this game.
3.0 killed it, but I have so many fond memories of this mod
I just nostalgia'd all over my keyboard.
I still have this installed and occasionally play a bit, either with bots or online if I can find an active server. I find it surprising that it's still a lively-ish mod, relatively speaking. So much fun. I played absurd amounts of deathmatch on ts_lobby. Many great kung-fu duels were had. The few zombie servers were also pretty damn fantastic.
Mod of the year all years
Theres still a quite a few servers up, I would say about 25 - 30 and only about 2-3 are populated greatly. Anybody know what happened to their official website and team?
I'm addicted. [editline]28th February 2012[/editline] This mod deserves to be revived again.

[QUOTE=HoliestCow;34921316]Nice bump, For gameplay videos Check out this thread [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1166356[/url][/QUOTE] You can play with crosshairs? I always thought they removed the entire hud and shit because it would take more skill :v:
[QUOTE=MisterSjeiks;34923356]You can play with crosshairs? I always thought they removed the entire hud and shit because it would take more skill :v:[/QUOTE] Crosshairs were always there...
Oh man I feel so old just looking at the half-life 1 mods and feeling all nostalgic and shit.I used to play this mod a lot back in the day.
Can you play with bots? Do people still play it? In that case, I will try it.
[QUOTE=Seibitsu;34928902]Can you play with bots? Do people still play it? In that case, I will try it.[/QUOTE] Some people play, but me and some facepunchers play like 3 times a week. Also Bots work.
[QUOTE=gbtygfvyg;34927156]Crosshairs were always there...[/QUOTE] And I never knew and always played without them :v:
I just learned how to do Dragon Kicks and Backward kicks.
Aw man...This mod brings back so many old memories.
But people only play rp, i want to dm with people :c
