I think the pop-out screen and scope are a little [I]too[/I] high resolution for Source, bub
I still find hgrunts in bm way too accurate and op even on normal difficulty. Then again maybe it's only me being a noob but i didn't have much problems with HL1's hardest difficulty and they weren't [I]that [/I] dumb with their A.I. another thing is that these guys in bm just run arround like annoying fucking rabbits Some weapons like say Mp5 run out of bullets faster because they have a higher fire-rate than the original but they at least it seems to me that the gun deals less damage.

Are the smoothing errors on Kleiner's model a known issue? [t]http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/357275807023972686/4B4DE5A453AF7C52572944E4944403EA395E4AA2/[/t] [t]http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/357275807023971380/9C230632671911CAB522D6706E5EDB270763CCB1/[/t] It was only appearing like that on his model
I noticed it on Eli as well.
The flat shading on Kliener's model has been reported multiple times on the Black Mesa forums (by myself included). Never saw any flat shading on Eli though, would have to look.

I am insanely late on this subject but is travis still working on these? They make me feel really nostalgic. [url]http://i61.tinypic.com/2dsjl1s.jpg[/url]

Finally, the excuse I've been waiting for to replay OaR Uncut.
One of the notes says "Fixed lighting origin" for the crossbow. Would this explain why some of the custom models I've installed have strange lighting parameters? (i.e. turning black in well lit rooms)
So can we not load non-workshop mods anymore? I've been trying to load my personal addons for Black Mesa into this new update and they don't work no matter what combination of loading them into the workshop\content\362890 folder I try.

[editline]26th January 2016[/editline] Hey Crypt19, if I were able to fix the lighting origins on your skins would I be able to reupload them?

Nevermind found it. As for the MP5 world model yeah it does need updating. I've been using the world model from the EOD MP5 from Gamesbanana.

Think I've seen you ask a few people (including myself before) questions like that. As a general rule for any of my mods, while I probably won't stop anyone from uploading their own versions, for bugs or issues with them I'd prefer to fix them myself so all versions are up to date and receive appropriate updates and fixes. No need to have different versions with varying levels of brokenness floating around. Not to mention once I do fix issues, the new third-party "Fixed" uploads would be redundant. Same deal with some of the BM fix mods, like the Blast Pit lighting one. One the devs actually fix it, the upload serves no purpose and probably just causes compatibility problems. Again, though, that's not a definitive "no u sux." If you wanna do it, go ahead, I'll even give you an up rate if it's fixed, I just think it's a bit redundant.

There's plenty of tutorials and amazing software around. Also there's this saying among 2d artists that even monkeys could do 3d :p As for the topic, I personally don't really care what people do with my mods and whatever stuff that I give away. If they want to modify it, I can't stop it regardless, so I just allow whatever permission I'm asked in regards to my stuff. If you made a fix, release it. Then it's for public to decide wheter they want it or not. If you want Crypt to implement your fix, just ask him. That's what I think...

Also there's this saying among 2d artists that even monkeys could do 3d :p[/QUOTE] So much this. While I suppose creativity and inspiration could be debated, not having the technical know-how is purely due to not trying. As an example, I've actually been modelling very off and on for less than two years, and I'm not particularly advanced. That's why the HD arms I made are shaped so unnaturally, I'm still learning. Otherwise I'd also be stuck at the "no skill" spot. As for the lighting fix, it's on my to-do list. I haven't gotten around to it yet because I've been busy starting a project with a team. Like I said, there won't be any bad blood at all if you upload the fix yourself, I just think it'd be pointless since I'd push the same fix out with an updated model as well not long after.
Yeah, it makes a lot more sense to ask Crypt to fix it, rather than try and fix his work yourself. I'm sure he's very capable of fixing a broken lighting origin. Regarding the mentioned Blast Pit lighting fix, that mod already caused us a lot of trouble with the CU2 update, because we dramatically changed the inner workings of that silo map. We moved the transition landmark to fix some of the level transition wonkiness (which worked, the fix was good). However, the map then totally broke for anyone who used that mod, because anyone using that old map would transition into the void now. And nobody who used the mod ever would suspect it, because why would a lighting fix cause you to appear in the void? Game development, haha. Crypt's stance makes sense. The other thing is that a mod like the Blast Pit lighting fix is a workaround, not a fix. The bug which causes the lighting error on Blast Pit is a [B]VERY DEEPLY[/B] embedded problem in the engine related to named/dynamic lights and the entity we created to manage them and increase performance. That's why we still haven't fixed it yet, and I assure you, we had a programmer on it for [I]weeks[/I]! It's why we had to take out the muzzle flash lights when we released, and many other problems. A fix is always better than a workaround, and that's one of the reasons why the engine license is so useful. I'm not speaking out against the Blast Pit lighting fix; his workaround was very creative and it's good that people who are bothered by the lighting bug have a way of getting it out of sight for now. Just a general thought on people fixing other peoples' work while it's still being actively developed. More of a stream of consciousness.
So is there another place where mods are being hosted considering the Workshop is messed up right now? I moved over what I could into the addons, but does On a Rail Uncut work from subscribing, or does it need to be moved too?

I'm pretty sure you just needed to update any faulty mods by following the steps listed in the latest patch: [QUOTE=Black Mesa Main Client Patch - 0.2.1][I]This update may corrupt and break save files. If you're experience any issues with old loads, please restart the game at the start of that chapter. You can do that by clicking "New Game" on the main menu, and picking the latest chapter you were on. Additionally, if you are experiencing issues with missing models or textures in-game, you have a legacy error with mods. If you have subscribed to any mods since launch and are experiencing these issues please do the following steps to fix the issue. 1. Unsubscribe from all Black Mesa mods 2. Go to ***\SteamApps\workshop\content\362890 (where *** is the location to where your steam games may be) 3. Delete all folders within this folder 4. Launch Black Mesa, and you should be good to go. Once you do this, you should be able to re-subscribe to any and all mods that you want.[/I][/QUOTE]
The addons folder doesn't work anymore, you have to mount it as a searchpath in your gameinfo.txt now. [code] game+mod bms/addons/*[/code] Also works if you want to use a different folder name (I use "!custom").
