    We are talking about this in the thread I created on our own website, right here.

    I dunno, but you might find it interesting. I've seen it running with my own eyes, it's just that they did not yet integrate any models, textures, and so on.

    feel free to take a look: http://www.hl2online.com/forums/showthread.php?t=132

    Peace.

    I've seen the video too, it could easily be HL1.

    its not a demo , its just the source that has been compiled and some weak bsps that have been created. There is no halflife 2 without the models , sound , story , etc..

    Hmm I don;t know bud...I am actually quite convinced that this is Half-Life 2.

    it's old news that you can run hl2 with custom maps..

    allow me to correct myself then.. you can run the source engine with custom maps/models/shaders.

    But you said yourself in your own thread that you placed a link to that the graphics are horrible. Who cares if it's the actual game if the content is not created by Valve? I want my first experience with the game to be all Valve's doing, not some criminal's.

    A portion of HL2 maybe.. From the talk of the community, only one map can be accessed... Not really a victory for the hackers or idiot who let it out. People are really blowing this way out of proportion.

    no they're not g-man.
    there are 8 maps 'officially' out, and people are working on models/shaders/whatever.
    my guess we'll have a full on mod out pretty soon.

    Wow! That wmv video is SO convincing... no really! : )

    Yeah well of course I myself would prefer something from Valve too, but the reason I posted this is that I am actually quite surprised that it's already finding its way around the internet.

    The water physics suck... it's obviously NOT HL2

    You come to that conclusion just because the water physics suck?

    what water physics?
    first of all the dx9 effects dont work yet, and if you look at qzaw.bsp, you can see the balls floating up and down, and bouncing around.

    hard to explain, but the physics are there, just without textures and shaders.

    i cant believe you're not convinced it's hl2 yet though.. this is so old news. heh

    Well have you played it? Care to comment on what content there is?
     
  22. Djinn

    Djinn Guest

    No I have obviously not played it myself, but I don't see why the water physics suck, I mean it appears that the textures and all that aren't integrated yet, so I find it weird that people doubt the excistense of a playable demo just because the "water sucks".

    Edit: the link to that video is in that thread.

    spitcodfry, there is no content as such.
    but people are working on their own resources, and since the physics are there, it's all there to be used.

    Look at it! The rock is not even aligned with the surface of the water! and it doesn't ripple. Have you even seen the E3 Video? The water in the video is bazillion times better than that crap.

    You know... talking about it like this only promotes and encourages more idiots to try it out for themselves, I suggest you stop this nonsense at once : )

    I totally agree. Any and all threads regarding the leak should be deleted unless it contains updates as to the search for the perps or words from Valve.
     
  27. Djinn

    Djinn Guest

    Well I get your point, but are you saying that people are not, or should not, talk or comment on things that happen incertain groups/communities regarding Half-Life 2 in general, including its source leak?

    I mean I am as excited about Half-Life 2 as most of you guys, and of course I stind behind Valve at any costs, but I do not see why we should totally ignore this thing instead of retrieving new game information from it.

    The source leaked, terrible of course, and I am extremely pissed about that don't get me wrong, but it has happened, no one can change that. So I am just trying to take a look at it from the bright side now, if there even is one...

    Don't get me wrong.

    Peace.

    I'll be honest in saying that if there was a beta of the game with the content from Valve then I'd probably download it, just because I'm bored and have nothing else to play except Halo PC multiplayer (which is quite fun with the inclusion of the Banshee, by the way). I wouldn't feel as if I was cheating Valve because I've already paid for Half-Life 2 in full at my local EB via a preorder.

    ARG!! you dont get it, the Havok engine is there, the watter is rippeling but there is not graphic to show the ripple! there is only 1 texture for water, when the water ripples it uses a diffrent texture.

    You know I keep having a stupid dream that the e3 vid were just cinematics from the game and the gameplay will be the original DOOM graphics. And after watching this vid I really am scared.

    its not the game. its someone that compiled the source code (underlying code for the engine). The reason that its a big deal is that this is what the game is made with. Its the instructions that tell things how to react. Its got the havoc engine (licensed to valve) and its got there physics instructions and all of that crap. with that, someone can A) make a game on the hl2 engine for free (valves relying on licensing fees for that engine) or B) create hacks for hl2 before the game is released.

    The fact that someone through a couple of textures into a crappy map deos not make it hl2. it makes it exactly what was leaked, the source code.
    If you didnt expect this to happen then you dont know a whole lot about code. The minute that i heard that the source was released, i knew it would be only a couple days untill we saw someone playing in it.

    This isn't even as much as the Doom3 alpha. That had models and maps and textures. this has nothing of a sort. its up to whoever wants to try it, to make that shit.

    Damn fools that steal shit like that. This is worse than stealing a car, its like stealing the manufacturing process. allowing someone to reproduce if they do so choose.

    I'm sorry, but I don't get why some people keep saying OMG LOL ITS NOT TEH REAL HL2 CODEXOR!!!

    All I see is some bouncing stuff and a guy running into a block and it busts into smaller purple blocks recorded in a crappy quality video. Not exactly stunning proof of anything really. Other than someone's ability to make low quality videos of...something.

    It might really be Source, but I can't tell what the hell is going on.

    just like you dumb asses said the game wasn't delayed :flame:

    That's because these programmers have to figure out how to make the maps, models, etc. It's not like valve included a file that gives a step by step walkthrough on creating a map. It's like trying to decipher latin with only 1/20th of the latin to english dictionary.
