Does anyone still play this? Started downloading it, I used to love this game!
[QUOTE=Terragen;34938042]Does anyone still play this? Started downloading it, I used to love this game![/QUOTE] I play it c;
I cant find the Half-Life folder to put the mod in. Its not in the usual place, and searching various plays on HL and Half-Life, only the shortcut comes up. Halp.
Right click shortcut, click open file location or something along those lines.
Man I used to be the boss at this game 50 .cal barret and lazersight :v:
[QUOTE=Falchion;34943571]Right click shortcut, click open file location or something along those lines.[/QUOTE] That would usually help, but games on steam launch via steam, the shortcut is just a link to steam://rungameid/70
you have to load up a half-life map/chapter in order to make the folder appear. like, start playing the game, then quit. not just the menu btw
I used to play this and Svencoop a whole lot. I nostalgia'd entering the thread, then I realized how much it sucks that I'll never have those days back. At least I got to enjoy them.
Too bad this was never brought to the source engine :sad:
[QUOTE=Terragen;34947410]Too bad this was never brought to the source engine :sad:[/QUOTE] There was a mod based on it, the last time I played it (2009 or 2010) it was still in the beta phase [editline]1st March 2012[/editline] well there were 2 mods, but I was playing the one that had more potential. One of them was called "The Specialists: Source" or something else, but just as obvious, and the other one was just based on it.

The closest equivalent we've got is Action Half-Life 2, but that's its own thing mainly and is definitely not a Specialists successor.
I just checked it, it was called "Distraction mod for HL2", and it closed on 2011, the latest post on their blog before that announcement was in 2009. It's sad, really, because it had really great potential and a nice little community (it's fun meeting people you know in every match you play) [editline]1st March 2012[/editline] Action Half Life 2 sucked the last time I played it

Ah, The Specialists. [video=youtube;hX6WwTheO-I]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hX6WwTheO-I[/video] Good times. Shame this mod isn't more popular.
More like "shame there aren't many source versions of it", it would probably be as popular as it once was
[QUOTE=Zukriuchen;34950283]More like "shame there aren't many source versions of it", it would probably be as popular as it once was[/QUOTE] More like "shame the creators are too entitled to let anyone else take control of their project." Closest attempt was Distraction and that was just god awful. I'm sure there's a few fans out there who want to make a Specialists: Source, but the creator specifically stated that nobody else would be allowed to make a mod under that name or a mod that was exactly the same as the Specialists, else he would tell his mom I presume. :v:
what a douche and Distraction wasn't bad, but they barely updated it.
[QUOTE=Zukriuchen;34966744]what a douche and Distraction wasn't bad, but they barely updated it.[/QUOTE] I just think it was bad because it was basically DOA with it's tiny community. I'm sure it's good if there are a lot of people and they all know what they're doing.

We need a server.
[QUOTE=Liamhailhail2.0;35063828]We need a server.[/QUOTE] We really do. I am always looking to play but barely any servers/do not want to play RP.
[QUOTE=Terragen;35064921]We really do. I am always looking to play but barely any servers/do not want to play RP.[/QUOTE] I could throw a ts_lobby server up? I used to RP on this game 24/7. I thought it was completely dead.
i seriously hate to bump this, but im having an issue with FOV. the fov command doesnt work for whatever reason so this makes me feel sick. ive tried googling it and found nothing. any ideas? [editline]2nd July 2013[/editline] also, could someone pass me a link to a zombie mod?
I believe it was an anti cheating method, you can't change the fov. They blocked alot of console commands since people would create scripts and what not. As for a link to a zombie mod. There all pretty much dead, I have a copy of mine that was pretty publicly used. It's an AMXX plugin, assuming you have that all setup and stuff. Also, not sure if this was mentioned. By the guys who made TS: [url]http://www.moddb.com/mods/double-action[/url] Pretty much TS for Source.
