Version of Half-Life Red Alert Xpantion for developers — mod for Half-Life 1 by HLRA team (aka Psychodelic ink) on 12.XII.2011. Join us!

Program requirements for work: it is necessary to have Half-Life 1 versions 1.1.1.0 or higher (certainly, except Half-Life 2). Under Windows 95 or higher with DirectX 8 or higher. It is desirable, that in shared folder Half-Life instead of standard libraries hw.dll and sw.dll (are responsible for hardware and software graphics drawing) dll-libraries from DoD were used — they are in addition capable to display the set parts of models with an additive transparency and a transparency alpha mask. Download that libraries hw.dll and sw.dll here.
Developers edition of Half-Life Red Alert Expantion mod





download HLRA for developing on 12.XII.2011 y. [158 Mb in .7z archive].
download Half-Life update to version 1.1.1.0 (for non Steam H-L) [80.6 Mb in .7z archive].
download Qeffects download graphic effects library QeffectsGL for Quake/Half-Life engine by Xaerox [63 Kb in .7z archive]. This .dll library should be placed in a folder with hl.exe file. It adds several graphic effects such as Bloom, HSL color correction, Multisample anti-aliasing (and in some cases Depth of Field, Screen-space emboss bump-mapping and Screen-space ambient occlusion (but SSA occlusion doesn't work good in HLRA)). You can use it if you want to see them.

It is the truncated version of HLRA mod. There are completely new maps in it which are beginning with the lenin1 map both coming to an end with lenin2 and processed old maps with a prefix ! beginning from the map !lenin1 and ending to !xxx2 and xxx3 maps.
At present it's necessary: to sound characters on lenin2 and to retexturize the xw_lcity and bazat maps (following by xxx3). The Lenin3 map is almost ready. Further tasks later.

What new in this version in relation to an old demoversion in which already a lot of things was made:
   New maps are added and almost all old maps are finished. Additional space is added on many maps. But the most part of maps didn't enter to this version, after all as it was told it is the special cut-down version.
   New objects including monsters and the weapon are added.
   New models are created and the existing are finished.
   Background music is added. Sometimes.
   We are rephrased of soldiers and special player suit (HEV). Partially sounds of scientists and security are remade. New ambience sounds. The sounding of objects (some trains, doors, buttons, breaking objects) is also changed.
   Many new textures is created and the existing are altered.
   New sprites are added and existing are updated.
   There was a game stock now. It can be switched by [ and ] keys. Plus that in general isn't so important, the splash screen and other game trifles changed.

Despite a basic purpose, you certainly can play or put in it experiments. But after all we wait for you in the Guest book. Or better write on a Branch of a forum and send materials parcels post. Our general e-mail — .
Examples of images from many maps of game are in SCREENSHOTS site section.
