    Ok this probably exists somewhere but i have searched the forums here. Does anyone know if there is a comprehensive list of the different levels that where in the leaked hl2 and not the retail version?

    I am asking this as it may give an indication to what to look forward to in the expansion pack, i know rasing the bar mentions a few things but has any one actualy played the leaked version played the ice breaker level etc. which maybe where in the leaked version (i am guessing)

    1. Shooting with pistol does not light the surroundings
    2. Correct me if I`m wrong but as far as i remember, if you applied pressure to a barrel, it bent

    There was also a nice weapon concept called "hopwire" if I`m not mistaken. Altough I never understood why it was useful for :p

    I was actually thinking of posting something similar.. anyway..

    there was a level on a ship and a dock level, that you may have started off on...

    there was a level, that look a lot like the ravenholm one where you first see the fast zombies... but instead combine chase you into the building.

    later in that level, there was a trap you could trigger where a huge beam would swing down and kill the guys below.

    Are you serious? Was all this in the leaked alpha?
    I thought only the e3 levels, and about 30 other unfinished maps..

    Whole different ending? The alpha didnt even have a story..you could just load different maps.. right?

    It was valves idea, but before they started working on some maps they changed their mind, thats why so much thing looks unfinished in the beta or in screenshots

    I think that list refres to the E3 videos...because in my copy of the leak there weren't that many things. But, i might be mistaken.

    i was actually considering looking for the leak again just to see what changed, but i'm not sure. i think i may have some CDs of it laying around somewhere.

    and before people start judging me for it, 95% of you downloaded the leak and you know it. i bought it legally when it came out, so absolutely no harm done.

    Supposedly you were to start off in the frigate, but it didn't make sense in the alpha. The Icebreaker was full of stalkers (that were, at that time, fast screaming ****ers with scythes and lasers) and you were essentially trying to navigate an inferno. Seemed a wee bit difficult.

    I'm also considering checking the alpha out again. Particularly the sound files I kept myself from hearing.

    Yeah, same here. I downloaded it about a month before HL2 came out, played it for about 2 hours then deleted it, because it kept crashing when I tried to load most levels. Only a few didn't crash. Is the Borealis in the leak or not?

    also barracade was suppose to be in the game, like where you fight striders with barney as he says "Remember when black mesa was as bad as it can get?" and you see citizens running away from something saying "STRIIIIDEEEERR!!!" and that one guy picked off the letters off the building to throw em at the strider

    valve cut those a long time ago and they only finished what they showed in e3

    In the game you really didnt get to play at that part since you were absent from the 1 week teleport to kleiners lab, but barney fought the combine by himself and with some of the rebels. although you team up with him much later

    I must say I was disappointed that the scene from the strider bink video didn't make it in the game. That was my favorite video out of them all. I loved the atmosphere of the eerie, almost-deserted street, and you turn the corner and a huge strider crashes through a building, sending resistance members running for their lives. It looked AWESOME and I wish Valve would've included that in the final game, but oh well. :(

    All those videos were ment to do was overhype the game.

    And they did a good job at that.

    :eek:

    I remember that one place where the stalkers pretty effectively **** you up.

    Now I want to reinstall just to mess around with that part. Maybe someone will make a mod that adds those old levels. That would kick butt. Even if they're not balanced and didn't work in the final game, I know they'd add a ton of replay value for me.

    People are already porting those leak levels to HL2, a few of them are on hl2 world.com 's download section. They have the docks level (only one zombie in this map, but the map is so nice looking) and the hydra level (theres no hydra in it though, and at the end Alyx speaks in G-man's voice :p)

    Wanna know something funny about that level? (e3_strider)

    If you go up to the building with the UMF on it, only the F and the U will come off of the building, the M is stuck on there. Most likely it is because when the person was making the bink demo, he didn't want to accidentally take the M off and have to record another demo. :LOL:

    Also, you can blow that catwalk up with a grenade. Oh and if you walk all the way down the street, the world just stops and there is nothing there. The same thing goes for the street that the strider walks down...if you go down it and turn right, there's a big, orange, un-textured wall.

    What my friend told me when he downloaded an old leak.. from like a year ago.. was that when you pick up stuff with your hands.. it's actually in your hand. It looked shitty on some objects and you could only pick up small things like bottles and cans. I wish they could make that for counterstrike or something.

    Actually the cut hydra was... Cut (Damn) from the game because the guy who got it working thought that even though it looked amazing and everything, when fighting it, it just looked stupid. A big blue blob attacking you, 'Oh noes! I'm sc4444r33d!' :p.

    or you can just throw something like electricity in the water (water conducts electricity) and everything in it including the hydras would fry and you would see this huge thunder snake doing its final strike just inches from your face until it disinegrated, too bad valve didnt come up with it

    kind of like fighting the worm boss in oppossing force
