This is a mod made by a Korean mapper. The read me is almost empty. It seems to be a remake of Half-Life! It starts with a ram tride, followed by collecting your hazard suit, then pushing the material into the test chamber and watch things go wrong.

  1. Phillip says Play It!

    Even though I have only played the first few levels I am really enjoying this mod so far.I quite enjoy exploring and I have been able to do that. There has been no problems at all and the scripting is behaving perfectly.

    I’ve yet to shoot anything but I sure that is about to change.

    Although I request readers to finish mods beofre they make a recommendation I feel confident to break my own rule. Let’s hope I don’t regret it.

    Is the language English or Korean??

  3. Is the language English or Korean??

    Well the level titles are dodgy English. But so far there has been no text anyway, excpet for the Intro.

    (electrified fences and powerboxes)
    I tought I needed to detroy the power source but nothing seems to cut off the power? …

    Maybe?

    edit nvm … after some more searching I found this small ledge I needed to jump on.

    The mod is quite well made, but it feels like; been there, done that.

    The creaters copied lots of stuff from both HL1 & OPF. It seems as if they remade HL1 but seen trough the eyes of an other character during the same timeframe.

    wen i try to install it it freezes at 16% do u know y that is

    Try re-downloading the file. It is possible that it is corrupted. If it is not, make sure there are no other apps running in the background. Those can possibly interfere with the installer.

    Those are a couple of general tips to try.

  8. wen i try to install it it freezes at 16% do u know y that is

    Mine “paused” at 16% but I carried on doing other things and when I checked again it had finished. I know that’s not much help to you but it sounds like it’s an installer issue rather than your system.

    Has anybody elase had this problem?

  12. Yeah P.P., my copy also ‘paused’ at the 16% mark for about 25 seconds, or alittle more, but then continued and installed fine. Like you said, it’s probably just a problem with the installer. I haven’t played all the way through it,so I don’t have an opinion…yet! However, from what I have played, it seems pretty decent.

    I absolutly enjoyed this very well put together mod!! The only problem I had in the whole thing was a couple of doors not triggering, but that’s it! It had some stuff from HL1,BlueShift and I think Opossing Force. A little slow starting out but the action sure picked up! Toxagen, you guys/gals did a great job! Thanks from Minnesota! You even get treated to some Korean rock?? I have no idea what the song was tho!

    It’s not very obvious. but after you pick-up the grenades etc. Time your run over to the far building with the large window over the door. Go upstairs cleaer out the room and break the glass, then jump down to the transformer box below the window, turn right and face the wall and jump toward the very small ledge. It’s hard too see but it’s there. Then slide around the corner, drop down in front of the door. Then go in and turn off the power. Hope that helps you.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this mod and would easily put it in my top 10. Being that it’s pieced together from different sources, it is flawless in design. I’m pretty sure there is some new stuff in there as well and it’s HUGE! There are some areas that make you feel like you’ve been there before but it’s not quite the same and soon passes. It does start out slow so one can explore more than fight but shortly after, the pace is sure to quicken your pulse until the very end. Just one big gripe – please get rid of the headcrabs on crack!!

    Great HL1 mod. Will definitely enjoy playing this one again!

  24. Play It Now!

    This is a huge mod that’s very, very playable. That said, I have found one or two issues…While the majority of models are hi-res, a couple are not. Normally this isn’t an issue, but when you have a hi-res Barney standing next to a lo-res Otis, or a hi-res sci-zombie next to a low-res barney-zombie, it’s pretty noticable. It’s easily fixed (if you like Phillip, I can send you a small zip with the updated models I use), but a slight oversight.

    The difficulty is a tad uneven. In some places it’s quite evil, in others pretty much a cakewalk. Overall it works out, but in a couple of places, it’s not pleasant at all.

    Some of the level design is a tad questionable. The above mentioned ledge is one, and there’s another section later on which I was stuck at. For the most part, it’s pretty good, but there are one or two moments that warrent a ‘huh?’

    But, even with those problems, it’s still one of the best Half-Life I mods I’ve played in ages, and I’d happily recommend it to anyone.

    Yes, I think the description given doesn’t go with what the mod actually is. It’s not a remake of HL. You recieve the white helmeted bio hazard suit and no pushing test material into the chamber and no Nihilanth. It’s completely different from the original HL.

  27. You recieve the white helmeted bio hazard suit and no pushing test material into the chamber

    I never said it was a copy of Half-Life, more his version. In the first few levels I played you kinda push the material into the test chamber.

    Once I play the “real” version I’ll change the description.

  29. Play It Now!

    Well, I finally finished it and I have to agree with 99.9% of the comments…it WAS great and, without a doubt, will be played again. I really can’t say anything about it that wasn’t already said. It is one of THE best mods I have played in a long time and my hats off to the creators. The only problem I had, which really wasn’t a problem at all, was the hesitation at 16% during the install. Hey give me a break, I had to find something to gripe about!!!LOL

  30. Actually, can I just point out how much I despised the Xen section at the end? Not because it was Xen, but because it had all the enemies I hate. And those fast zombies don’t drop any ammo, which is irritating, ’cause I kept running out.

    And Phillip, may I suggest the following for a description:

    “Residual Point tells the story of Jack Sohn, a research assistant in the Biodome Laboratory of Black Mesa. Once again, the resonance cascade has caused otherworldly creatures to run amok, and all you want to do is get out…

    Featuring new enemies and over 110 maps, this is an absolutely huge mod you simply must play.”

    This is definitely a well done MOD. I would not describe it as been there and done that. It would say this looks familiar but the level design and puzzles are challenging and complex. Has anyone tried the training ground (boot camp) besides Phillip?
    I believe it is another entire story. It has a shorter tram ride and the scene where you put the materials in the test chamber. When you get to the teleport spheres, there are multiple paths. One sphere leads to an underground sewer, while the other takes you topside for a grunt fight.

    Two scientists are locked in a shipping crate with a vent on top. Once released, they will open a pair of glass double doors, and various other doors on the way, so you can backtrack to the elevator with a truck in it.

    This is where I need help. I led them back to the big door with an injured security guard, but I can’t get them to open it. At least, I think that is the way forward.

    Yes I found a blue shipping crate and above it there is a ventilation entry but there is no scientists in the crate. There is only one injured security guy and one dead scientist. I tried to kill the security guy but nothing happens – if I’d need him I suppose the game would something write like “Mission failed” or whatever. I don’t know what’s wrong. Maybe it’s a bug… :(

    I don’t remember whether they got hurt. In any case, I replayed those levels from when I first found the scientists, and I got the scientists to open the door for me. Everything’s fine now. I must compliment you on your professional and very substantial mod.

    Yes I found a blue shipping crate and above it there is a ventilation entry but there is no scientists in the crate. There is only one injured security guy and one dead scientist.

    Climb on top of the crate where you found the security guard, and take the vent to another room. In that room is a red crate with two healthy scientists in it. However, you have to enter it through a vent in the top.

    Tox, I really don’t understand, you’ve put a hint and spoiler in a comment, you seem to be the author, yet you have problems playing the mod?

    I think Toxagen means a walkthrough is needed, not that he needs one himself.

    I will try making a walkthrough.

    That’s a wonderful idea. I look forward to it. If you like, I would be happy to proofread and format it, to submit it for publication here on PlanetPhillip.

    I’m quite curious about the electric puzzle as I had to noclip past that part to turn the generator off. If anyone could help, I’d really appreciate it.

    Also, it was nice to see some of your maps for Residual Point in Sven Co-op.

    Which electrical puzzle are you referring to?

  57. Goddess Alyria 416 comments

    31st October 2007

    The one after you crawl through the vent and have to pass the instant electrocution zone. I know once you pass that part, you make your way along a small ledge to reach the generator room to turn the electricity off. I just wanted to know how to get past that zone where you instantly die. I don’t know which map it’s in.

    OK it is the place I’m talking about.I just watched it.You come out otf the vent turn left while still crouched.Go through the vent and come out and bust a few boxes then enter the room there and grab some goodies.After that just walk straight through to the other side but wait for the head crabs to die that are on the other side.

    In order to watch the video since it’s hosted at some asian site i had to click up where it says no sound on the gray border.Then it asks to put in your xp cd to download some asian characters then it played.

    That’s a no-go andyb. Jumbles and I both just tried it and after the headcrabs die, you can’t go anywhere. If you take one step anywhere near the tower, it kills you instantly.

    Also, tried what you said about the video and it never asked to download anything.

    Sry I’m being late with the walkthrough, I’ve been so busy these weeks and it’s such a long mod and I prefer shorter but packed with action instead of longer and action lacking parts. Still, the mod isn’t that hard, I’m finding most of the puzzles quite simple (the electric one was harder and I’m sorry I didn’t check the site for so long, I could have helped you in no time, GoddessAlyria), you just have to check more things, try more paths and know it’s not impossible..

    Arghhh! I’m sure I blew up everything in that room but I must have overlooked the breaking glass due to the explosions ;).

    Uhm, I’ve just finished the mod and haven’t encountered the map with the strange sky, like in the second video.. Also, there was a map with sort of a dead end, meaning the scientist couldn’t open some door, 4 grunts came out and then, nothing, even though I could hear all kinds of enemies behind the walls, nothing happened, nothing would break or explode (then I just backtracked and went another way). Must be a bug or too :| Sry if my walkthrough won’t be complete, guys..

    10th November 2007

    I’ve decided to make a review because I really felt like I had something to say about this mod and sry for not agreeing with all of you who said “Play it” (some people just read about it and recommended it..).
    Don’t know where to begin.
    My game froze in some places and had to kill the process, which I’ve experienced very seldom in my HL years. Also, the 2 bugs I mentioned in another comment made me skip some maps, I think.
    U know, a map’s length is limited for a reason. But here, that reason was ignored, meaning the map change brought same walls/textures, same enemies, same old battles. And the length! Oh, the length. Way too big. Seems like a rubber streched so hard, one more millimeter and it could break. The author could have just removed the double maps, then it would make some sense to me. And there’s no story! No cutscenes, no lines, no connection whatsoever, just some poor titles which don’t say much. Big, huge mistake!
    The mod has new textures, new Barney which slows you down and shoots through you and 4 new enemies, all very rare & a nice surprise. Except the zombie grunts didn’t make any sense. If they were slow at walking, shouldn’t they be slow at firing, also? And sometimes I would see them in the distance in the next room, the door would close and 2 seconds later, they would open the door. Nice AI here, bravo, but it felt like they were teleported there or sumthin. The getting shot in the doorway thing, you all agree it’s really annoying. And all about the slaves popping out and no chance of ducking them and the super crabs and the zombie grunts often felt like I was in a disadvantage and not that the game was hard. Because I’m not ok with my hev dropping if I approach those enemies in any way. I often reload and try different approaches, such as angles, weapons & killing order to see which would save me more health & hev. With these guys, nothing seemed fair.
    A plus represents the non-linearity, which is very important and the author knew it and used it as often as he could. And, for me, using the sound of a submachine gun on the background always wins me over (this time, it wasn’t enough).
    The gameplay is overall good, but sucks in some places so bad, I got either bored or annoyed or lost my patience and at some point I really didn’t want to continue this mod (don’t remember ever wanting that) but I did only because I had to finish the WT..
    Many pluses, megaminuses, unjustified longevity.
    The bad parts, unfortunately, overcome the good ones, I give it a 2 out of 5 and I couldn’t live with myself if I would tell you to consider it (although most of you have already played it; why am I writing here anywayz :P).

    Play It Now!

    This mod is amazing. I’m having just as much fun as I did while playing Gordon’s story. Sure, the settings are familiar – but that’s because it’s all at Black Mesa. Moreover, there aren’t any areas copied over. In fact, I think the “waste facility” level is superbly done, much better than Valve’s.

    The only things that I have a problem with is that I get the “Warning: Sentence LK00_SC_DEADTALK longer then 15 letters.” error. I fix this by first running another mod game (like, run a Counter-Strike game or something). This lets me load up HL: RP games no problem.

    I also sometimes get an error where the loading clean-suit logo is super-imposed over the game screen. I can move and shoot, etc, meaning the game loaded fine. To fix that, I ALT-TAB to the desktop, then right-click on the half-life on the taskbar. The game loads up, and I click “Restore” on the little window. Then it plays fine, with sound and everything. This is a mild annoyance, but what the hell. I use quick-saves and quick-loads anyways.

    The overall level design is amazing, and Residual Point is a new and interesting angle on the Research Facility we all know and love. If loads up fine (or you’re willing to work a little bit) you’ll experience a huge and sprawling story.

    Play it!

    I played this to kill the time for my sleep meds to kick in (gonna play it again, this time fully (hopefully)), and, I dunno if anyone else has or noticed this problem. I seem to encounter missing texture and sound errors during the tram ride. I looked in the console and saw them, and at one point, I saw pink and black checkerboard on the roof of some train cars. I checked the .wad and .pak files with GCFScape and everything seemed to be in place; dunno if I’ll encounter the same problem again. Besides that, it seems the mod works fine. I wonder if the install messed up at that point, or the game can’t read the files correctly…

    PS: I also pause at 16%, but I notice it’s at the liblist.gam, which I believe is a big, important file for any mod.

    Like Philip I’ve accidently been playing the hazard course, which is just a whole new mission, as it turns out. And on top of that it has 2 alternative paths, depending on which teleport you take. One goes to the sewers, the other to fighting grunts. In this one, eventually you end up in an area with explosives all around. At the end of that there’s a section with some water and a ladder, but it’s fenced off, and I don’t know how to go on… The walkthrough published by PP is useless here, since it’s the hazard course… Anybody know what I’m talking about, and can help me?

    Thanks. By now i’ve noclipped through the fence, and there’s nothing there, it’s a dud. So I’m thinking this is the end of the hazard course/teleport 2/ fighting grunts mission…
    I’m now doing the hazard course/teleport 1/sewers misson and it’s huge… I had to use a cheat once, because I could not figure out how to get in the turbine control room, just in the beginning. You need to get in there, to turn off the underwater fan, and go on… Is there a legal way to do this I wonder? There’s only one door into the turbine control room, and it’s closed… So I noclipped in.

    i don’t think i’ve come across the biodome complex, the locker room has a sohn locker but the suit is in the other room. few things are available, like a room where you have to wait a little for the 2 scientists to bring up some small machine and that’s it, no test chamber yet..
    i’m just spinning round and getting stuck in elevators, must be a bug.. maybe i’m supposed to push that machine but it doesn’t work..

    Allright, I finished hazard course / teleport 1 now. I know because there are credits at the end. It’s actually called White Force (alpha). Since this has a proper ending, I’m thinking the other one might have too…

    Guess not. But what I’d like to know is, for boot camp / teleport 1: What was the legal way to get into the turbine control room (see ealier post). And is there a proper ending for teleport 2, or is it over after you’ve cleared out the section just after the courtyard with lasermines and explosives?

    Play It Now!

    SPOILERS…

    Okay, well I’ve finished the main mission now, so i’ll give my opinion on it. It’s very long, but mostly good. It gets a bit repetitive in some of the later chapters. Room after room of the same enemies, the same pickups, the same doors… But it’s got some good original things too… the armed zombie soldier… the xen tramride… No bugs to speak off. I had the usual trouble with elevators. And sometimes the magnum wouldn’t do damage. I skipped the boss battle, I wasn’t up for two spiders, and it’s the end anyway. Don’t forget the training mission (boot camp), because it’s an old mod from the same author.

  93. Ade 809 comments

    5th January 2008

    well, it’s not over after the explosives part.
    you just need to break a few boxes and find a laser trip and go back use it to climb a fence. not the dud one with the water and the ladder, the one just before it. and there are other grunts n some trucks behind it.
    about the fence climbing.. just take a moving box and place it near the fence and place the trip mine on it, but lower so you can climb the trip mine and then the box and then the fence. i have a screen shot: http://rapidshare.com/files/81472120/sky01u0000.bmp.html

    hope you won’t have any trouble from there.. as for the teleport 1, haven’t started it yet

    5th January 2008

    Thanks. You’re right. I couldn’t find a box, but you don’t need it. Put the lasermine in the right place on the wall, and you can hop from the mine over the fence. This mission is a lot bigger then I thought…

  95. Ade 809 comments

    6th January 2008

    you don’t have to open the turbine control room, just get a box of explosives from up there and take it back to the water, it will flow by itself in that underwater fan and explode and stop the fan :D
    then go into the portal and another level starts.
    if you have any other problems, holler :P

  96. TheRipper 123 comments

    7th January 2008

    well, it

  97. Maybe?

    When I was only half way through this mod, I thought it was one of the best Half-Life 1 mods I had played in years. But no! It is hugely disapointing, because it has no ending!

    There I was, stepping into a portal to what I thought would be the final ending sequence, or a movie with G-Man, or SOMETHING, but instead it is just a black screen and end credits! The player goes to Xen, kills aliens, but doesn’t accomplish anything! Or escape! Is it supposed to be part one, with a future mod continuing the story? It says “The End…?” But even so, it should have some kind of final sequence, some kind of pay-off, some kind of reward for defeating the LONGEST Half-Life mod ever. Not just a fade-to-black and end credits.

    As an extreme Half-Life veteran I appreciated a mod that was a challenge, this mod is tough. I played on medium difficulty, but the high health of enemies and the fact that the female assassins could turn invisible makes me think he rigged it so that medium was actually hard mode. I didn’t mind, it made defeating all those enemies and getting to the end of the game without cheating really satisfying. And it was great that it included male assassins (Black Ops) from Opposing Force, and we got to see them fighting human soldiers. And even the weird zombie soldiers kind of made sense, cause the player could see the Xen aliens were doing some kind of weird experiments with humans. If this mod had an actual ENDING I’d give it a high score, but instead I got left with the feeling that the 2 days playing this mod were a massive waste of time.

    Thanks to this page on the mod creator’s website http://memolog.blog.naver.com/toxagen/49 I knew about the other routes, I had a permanent save in the part in Xen where the routes split off. So I tried the other route, to see if it had a different ending. Nope. Got to fight a different way through Xen, it was quite cool and I think more enjoyable than the other route, but it still had the same non-ending, and this route didn’t even have a boss-fight.

    Also, if you activate sv_cheats 1 and then type map xk02r you can access some extra hidden bonus maps. It’s cool, fighting enemies in a totally bombed and destroyed Black Mesa with a Xen “portal storm” sky! Have to use the impluse 101 cheat to get HEV suit and weapons cause you start with nothing and it is tough combat right from the start. It has the chapter name “Residual Point”, the actual name of the mod. Some pretty good combat, and all of the enemies from the mod. When I progressed and found it was actually several maps, and I then got a new chapter name, “Final Escape”, I thought I had uncovered the real secret ending to the mod! But there is no way to escape from the Final Escape map, at the end it is just locked doors. (I even grenade jumped up into a high vent only to discover the vent was a dead-end, damn.) I noclipped around to check if I had missed something, but no, it is an unfinished map. Also, if you quick load while in Final Escape the game crashes (though you can start the game again and then load a save from that map).

    The Residual Point/Final Escape maps should have been what happened after the last portal on Xen. That would have been a cool ending – returning to Earth and discovering it now having portal storms with a Xen sky. And the end of the Final Escape map should have been the player getting in a truck or train or aircraft and actually escaping from Black Mesa or something. It is disapointing to see a mod-maker with such obvious and amazing talent and skill end the biggest and hardest most epic Half-Life mod ever with such an anticlimax. To me it seems like he had decided he had worked on it long enough and decided to just release it unfinished.

    If you want to have a long and hard Half-Life experience then play the Timeline series of mods. If you play Timeline, Timeline II: Iced Earth and Timeline III: Heart of Darkness one after another, you’ll have an experience just as long and just as enjoyable, and with an actual awesome ending. I suppose Residual Point is just about worth playing, but bear in mind right from the start that it doesn’t have an ending.

  98. Ade 809 comments

    25th January 2008

    maybe for the mapper, the journey was more important than the ending and that’s why he made the mod so long

  99. Yeah, it certainly seems that way. And I must admit I did enjoy the journey.

    I’m not asking for an awesome epic ending or anything, it could have just been one minute long. Or even shorter – the old mod “Case Closed” is a good example. You open a door and are confronted by the G-Man and four soldiers, BANG black screen and cool music from The Terminator. That’s a three-second-ending, yet was more satisfying than Residual Point’s ending, which simply wasn’t an ending. It wasn’t even a “to be continued”. The bit where it said “THE END…?” made me hang around after the credits and listen to the music, and after five minutes it said “The End. (Really.)” The final room even included health and ammo pick-ups suggesting there was supposed to be something more, so what happened, the mod author just got bored and gave up?

    Heck, the bit with G-Man and all the green lightning in the middle of the game seemed more like an ending than the final anticlimax. I almost got the feeling that entire mod was a gigantic sadistic practical joke or something, like Half-Quake: Amen. If you backtrack in the parking area once you have the scientists and Barney you come across a battle with soldiers and TWO gargs, and once you defeat them (only possible if you happen to have a ludicrous amount of explosives) you bring a scientist to a previously locked door and… he tries to use it but it is still inoperable. Scientist says “I expected this would happen” and then you are attacked by even more enemies. So that means the game actually PUNISHES the player for exploring an alternative route! You use up all your ammo, probably have very little health yet, then get ambushed. Lovely.

    And it is weird that he didn’t make those “portal storm” maps part of the actual game, cause they were good fun – and hard – and would have made sense at the end of the mod after the final portal. The player returns from Xen to find Earth even more heavily infested and with a Xen sky. The ending could have just been getting in a vehicle and driving off. That way it would have seemed like the player had accomplished something. Or perhaps attempting to escape but getting killed instead, if the creator wanted the ending to be anticlimax. Would have been better than no ending at all.

    The current ending in Xen doesn’t seem like any accomplishment, you’ve killed a bunch of aliens but as far as you can tell you haven’t defeated anything important and you haven’t escaped from Xen. Imagine if a movie ended like that – the hero spends the whole movie fighting for his life, killing loads of bad guys, in an incredibly stylish and awesome way with loads of big explosions and great special effects, and at the end he… walks into another area. End credits. Woohoo.

    You can’t just stick end credits onto the end of a fight and call that an ending. So while I give this mod a massive thumbs up for most of the experience, but a massive thumbs down for pretending to be a complete mod when it is actually unfinished.

  100. I’ve added the rating section – Not sure why it wasn’t there before.

    Your evil twin – that’s a really nicely written comment. Thank you for taking the time to write something that adds value to the site.

    That punishment / dead end you were talking about.. I thought it was a bug.. it made no sense, just like you said and proves again the author lacks in creating a flow and a proper end.
    Then again, it is a long one and maybe he did just get bored at the end :))

    And thanks for reminding me of “Case Closed”. It’s worth a replay

    This mod is a mixed bag. While some chapters are well done and fun to play,others are tedious despite the fact that the player faces huge numbers of enemys. Good ideas and neat details are dispersed throughout the whole mod but somehow the composition is not coherent.
    I 2nd evil twins opinion that Timeline,all three parts played in a row,is after all the better gaming experience but i also recommend to play RP – for the good things that are scattered here in this to huge mod.

    I’m totally stuck in the underground railway where you first run from a turret and finally find these closed gates with soldiers on the other side.
    Right above those gates on your side is a balcony thing with a switch and G-Man. When G-Man is attacked, he leaves. Apart from that, how am I supposed to hit the switch?! Surely that would open the gates! And I tried hurling a grenade into the window, but no luck.
    I can’t go back where I started because the game always crashes at a specific spot.

    To be more precise, the error I get is first:
    S2_GetSpace: overflow without FSB_ALLOWOVERFLOW set on Server Datagram

    After that error, I get from Visual C++ Library:
    Program: …./hl.exe

    and this is in map sk03b whenever I go back to the turret I’m supposed to run away from.

    Decisions, decisions…

    Way too much of them, running through wrong doors, two or three are possible at every crossing. Running forth and back.

    The way is hard to find often, look for the walkthrough.

    It IS worth to play beauce beautiful ideas like the biohazard scientist ego, as long as the original game and retro-feeling in some areas seen before in HL an OF.

    In poke 646, azure sheep, vengeance etc. you will find straighter, common gameplay, so play the mod residual point later.

    Play It Later

    Action-packed mod (prequel to “Residual Life”) from Korean mappers with interesting setting and well-done maps.
    There is not only action but also some quite good puzzles and situations you’ve to sneak around carefully, so watch your step!
    If you play the “hazard course” there is a…well, how to call it? “Second mod”, with several maps which are like unfinished and some parts are in the original mod too.
    The maps are pretty good as they usually have a nice architecture, not looking boxy or so.
    It contains also some cool outdoor areas and the lighting is just pretty.
    As for the story you are a member of some research team in the BM facility as, of course, aliens invade it and the government send soldiers to kill everything that moves…

    Pro’s:
    -Pretty nice combat action
    -Great mapping including outdoor areas; nice architecture and lighting
    -Very good balancing – not too easy, not too hard
    -Some good puzzles
    -Almost every weapon and enemytypes
    -Varied design – it never gets too boring
    -Lot of nice scripted sequences
    -Hours of playtime

    Con’s:
    -Maybe a lil too tough for beginners sometimes
    -Story is neglectable
    -”Hazard course” maps look unfinished incl. long walkways, many locked doors etc.
    -Many locked doors
    -Game crash in the middle (model missing), read above for fixing, but still.. lot of content missing if you don’t fix itthen
    -Some design oddities and poorness
    -Getting a simple run & shoot in the very last chapters – pity

    Play It Now!

    This is the start of the “Residual” series made by korean modders, and well i’m givining it a Play it Now because of the pretty intense classic HL1 combat you find in here, but i have to say i tought of giving this a Play it Later or a Maybe?, the reason is the lenght of it, this mod is equivalent in lenght to the “Of Shore” HL2 mod, so is LONG, i think “Dopusk 31″ for HL1 still is the longest but i don’t know for sure.

    Talking about Long mods is to talk about not very polished fine mods, as this one, starts ok in the begining and gets repetitive specialy in the Black Mesa parts, untill you reach the xeninan maps, but also those xeninanspaces felt too repetitive in the mapping quite soon, the combat is great tough, and i think is mainly the combat which saves this mod.

    The story is terrible and definitely is evident that the authors didn’t care at all from it, even in the very enhanced “Residual Life” mod the story is a totally void, it feels like i those characteres we’re playing just have gotten lost and forgoten in BM mess, that also could tell that specialy this mod was a big junction of maps instaed of a well orienteded mod.

    In my opinion Residual life is a blast compared to this one, because maybe the authors learned the lessons of this mod.

    I like this team is producing old school HL1 mods still, here in 2012, i really appreciate that as a gamer, but i only would ask this team to pay more atention in elaborate finer and better story plots, and then that’s it they could deliver great works in HL1, and all i can do is to thank the guys for not let HL1 classic Black Mesa-Xenian mods to die, particulary in this times where HL1 classic mods are fewer and fewer.
