Surprised DH didn't have this on the front pages as NEWS but check this out: Description: This is the long awaited next version of Fakefactory's Cinematic mod but this version changes all of the textures to an insane high level of detail which is brilliant. And it also adds the following game changes. Music: It adds a more of an musical score to Half-Life 2 which makes the game a whole lot better. It actually gives it an "Hollywood" feel. Textures: It changes almost every Low-Resolution texture to an High-Resolution texture. Which gives the game a more immersing feel to it. It almost makes it look life-like. Weapons: It adds more balancing to weapons and strengthens the weapons to a more realistic level and the damages are life-life as well (e.g. One shot to the head = One kill) but unfortunately for you that same rule applies. Full disclosure of all of the changes can be found in the readme file. Great work as usual FakeFactory. http://halflife2.filefront.com/file/HalfLife_2_Fakefactory_Cinematic_Insane_Hires;54352 A new Hi-REZ pack that makes ALL the textures better. Awesome new intro movie that actauly explains things and sets up the game better. The new soundtrack is really inspiring as well. Very grand. The high res runs fine on my rig even with 2x AA on! (all HIGH) Until you get the flashlight with the suit you might not notice the detail in the faces. Barney's sideburns are a good example. One small quirk though.. I had some really weird problems after you get teleported outside near the window. I started seeing CODE(?) in the flashes and the hud got all messed up after that.
