Half-Life Update Breaks Community Mods

    ModDB are stating on a short statement in their news feed that Valve's recent updates their original game, following its release on Linux and MacOS, "have broken every Half-Life mod." This has been caused by both engine changes and the change of the directory that Half-Life is installed within the Steam folder. This isn't the first time that an update to a Valve product has caused trouble for modders and hopefully Valve can resolve the problem in a timely manner.

    Correction: The above news post was from the Cry of Fear mod developer, not ModDB staff.

    I'm sure Alfred is working on a fix, so calm down and wait for a fix. Also, don't forget to turn off V-Sync from the video options (it's a new feature), it fixes many known issues.

    Didn't see anybody particularly freaking out, just reporting the issues.

    You don't visit Steam Forums much, do you?

    Honestly after Valve never bothering to fix HL2 after they broke it with the mac update, I'm not sure if they'll fix this one either.

    • The referred post was published by the Cry of Fear team not by ModDB.
    • The update does not break every Half-Life-Mod, not even most of them, which you could easily affirm by starting a respective mod yourself.
    I would consider rechecking such a statement before reposting it on your main page thus causing resentments.

    There there Riom, we all make mistakes and justly feel ashamed of them.
