ashtimus prime (3 months ago)

Clanker (3 months ago)
ok. I want to know Can some one explain to me in depth what the Source Dev's repository even is I know I got the idea of it But I want to know more
"The folder link has been removed because of a ToS/AUP violation."
Does anyone know of a way I can get the scrapped white forest defense map he mentioned. Its one of the few things iv always wanted to see and In ep2s dev comentary they mentioned they cut it down to make it easier. And in my opinion as someone who did the neighborhood watch acheivment on hard that sounds like lots of fun.

In my opinion, Half Life 2 Beta or Leak is a bit more better. Not at the textures, but the enemy NPCs. There were more, and they were strong too. But I have a theory: was the bullsquid supposed to be in Episode 2? Like, it spits acid, and guess who spits acid in Ep2. Antlion workers, of course! But I believe the bullsquid was replaced with the fly-looking-ass Antlion workers.

From this we can gather that if you have a few thousand dollars to spare and you like half life 2 beta content sign a deal with valve

Rollergrub was probably inspired by the baneling or those battle droid things that roll and unfold. I hope they re-add the rolledgrub, reusing the unused antlion worker models and textures.

baneling. rollergrub. baneling = first shown in 2007 ep2 = released in 2007

The fact that 2 of the maps user 2 posted videos of are in the HL2:EP2 original trailer, I doubt there will be any trouble
Hikarmeme (9 months ago)
Why is beta content such a touchy subject. Everyone wants to remain anonymous and no one wants to actually make the content publicly available.
Patali (9 months ago)
Half-Life 2 us the beta holy grail. I love every bit of info and content we get for that game.
I actually have a build of half life, no mods, no bullcrap, legit beta. I was thinking about sending you a copy.

+Valve News Network how about the History of Counter-Strike Source?? Beta to Orangebox???.
Knuckles The Echidna (1 year ago)
Maybe we could take all the beta content from Half Life 2 EP1 and EP2 and create an unofficial third installment to the Half Life series so the people asking for HL3 would shut up. (Honestly I want that to happen... XD)

Sean Glennon (1 year ago)
The beta archive's link is dead. It says "Folder Link Unavailable". Was it moved, or did it just get completely taken down?
Justin Noker (1 year ago)
Imagine if somewhere on the dark net there is a secret FTP site set up holding next to all content on that source file repository. Realistically though, I see two issues with this. 1: are the files watermarked to a specific user, which would prove who leaked them? Plus, this is valve, they'd have the resources to track such a server down. 2: how would we even know about this server? If the original creator of the server started posting the onion link everywhere then it'd be too damn obvious who's the leaker, and 2nd issue is that even though some darknet search engines exist, they're all far from perfect, many don't even know half the sites in existence.

Sotirisdim8 (1 year ago)
Some people like one who has the beta models for portal, instead of explaining why they can't release the files into the public act like dicks about it and brag how they've got the textures etc. etc... Wouldn't surprise me if hackers who are angry because they brag like they are special little snowflakes decide to hack their PC's for revenge

The elite metrocop model has been in a metropolice model pack for a long time. It's one of the most popular and well known model packs on the gmod workshop and the model shown looks just like the one in the pack

I want to know why HL2 beta content is still under an NDA
Matthew (1 year ago)
+pingpong1138 it still has all content for them to use and again they signed a NDA.
pingpong1138 (1 year ago)
+Rabbitmcv for a game released 15 years ago though. Its one thing if it was for CS:GO or something recent.
Matthew (1 year ago)
Because it's in a valve Dev repository that costs $1000s to access

you know the flame of desire is officially gone when the only half life news is for half life 2 beta. good christ this is sad.
CheffBryan (1 year ago)
Hard to care any more. Been nearly ten years since HL2:E2, and nothing official on another game to actually play. HL3 is dead. Fight me, bro.
CheffBryan (1 year ago)
+ded rabbit Like a fetus; if it's not growing and just rotting in the womb, everyone says it's dead. Only people who don't know what's going on would be hopeful for the pregnancy.

Can you imagine if Episode 2 was released and Alyx died in such a stupid and shitty way. The backlash doe.
it would have worked the same way from what i heard where the vorts would save her life like they did with the stalker attack that nearly killed her
Colin P. (1 year ago)
Alex wasn't supposed to die, in the EP2 dev commentary you can hear that it was the original way she would get fatally wounded and have you get the larval extract. They dropped the idea because it was too dangerous of a situation for the start of the game, and the final version set up the chapter in the mines while introducing the Hunters well.
i don't remember playing any of these levels in half-life i played the hole game from beginning to end but i always see levels i am missing. why?
Colin P. (1 year ago)
This is Half-Life 2 and its episodes. The title is kind of misleading.
The SwampFox (1 year ago)
When I worked at Activision (and was on Activision's intranet 9 hours a day) - I came across a crap load of beta content for every Call Of Duty going all the way back to Call Of Duty 4. I also saw content from an unreleased Pitfall game (simply titled "Pitfall 2003"), and much, much more.

Yourwolfsdengaming (1 year ago)
As a rule of thumb, there are a series of steps that need to be checked in order for an NDA to be valid in the court of law. The one that matters is the fact that the owner must have "...suffered some detriment as a result of the unauthorized use..." . If they haven't, an NDA means nothing more than a promise. Because the entire concept of writing up an NDA is that if that information were to otherwise leak, it would cause damage either commercially, physically, or emotionally to the signee of the NDA. Someone who breaks an NDA can still be brought to court, but it's much harder to actually validate a court case if you can't prove any damage to any degree was done. The most that would occur is the court could demand they stop using said secrets, but that's fairly time consuming and extreme to do on content like this. As another rule of thumb, most NDAs last 2 to 5 years, and once the information is made public, the information covered under the NDA loses it's confidentiality. After that, it's generally accepted that the information is free to disclose and becomes public information at that point. I might be wrong on that last part since this is concerning digital media, but I'm just adding context to the situation :p Also, it heavily matters who signs an NDA and if it's a one-way or mutual NDA. If it's mutual and Valve revealed that this exclusive content existed through only X system, the NDA could be considered null and void.
