what?? you got a beta blehm?

anyway lasthope is more and more dead...
i hope i can find a beta...for it would be a shame to see this mod die...without a release...even if its a buggy one

and x-com lasthope is an xcom mod for halflife1.

That's not what I meant. If you'd have to choose between putting effort in finding an xcom mod for a game that has been long gone, or working on a new stand-alone game, I choose the latter. ;)

Except that Last Hope would be a half-life mod, so it'd be FPS instead of TBS :) I'd like to have a FPS version of X-Com (*sniff* Alliance *sniff*)

Why is it an exe file... don't ask me. They made it like that so it unpacks in a folder and when you load Half Life it SHOULD work but we never got to test it with Steam so it's free for all. If you find any bugs then you are seriously and properly you-know-what-cuz-forum-won't-let-me-curse

It is but remember you have to download Steam and the lastest version of Half Life, which at the time was 1.1.1.0, to be able to play online. I don't know if they ever tried it using Steam but playing it with that version of Half-Life should work ok. Just don't bang the thing too much and don't change any of the codes. It's pretty erratic and seriously laggy at some points.

After discussing this with Vico, yes :) this is the mod we've worked on - in the end the HL1 project more or less waved of death seeing as all our coders mysteriously vanished, and well - we could make tons of maps and models and such - but without adding more code its limited how far we could go.

As for the mod, it does include some fancy things (maps have the same feel as the old Xcom :) ) like flying armors, sectoids ect.

Vico was kind enough to ask me :) if it was okay to release it to the public, seeing as our current "remake" so to say (Borealisproject) will be aimed at a newer system (mainly because we got several coders), namely the hl2 engine, i see no reason why we cant release the hl1 edition as its not likely to be continued.

:) i never left the scene!
Aye, its been quite a bit of years (even longer for us makers who's been there from the start!) of producing, and quite some delays :) but though its still earlie beta, we wanted to give the people just a taste of the work.
Of course :) with a little luck, this will spike some interest for the "continuation" over at the borealis project (think i said it in the other thread, borealis project is not the new mod name :) but the group name, mod will still be Last Hope.).

Odd, we never encountered any of those problems on our end (and we did end up with the entire team, along with 20 beta testers) - so, so far your case is unique :)

Has it been released? no, then it doesn't exist (as there is not even screenshots of it)
And Last Hope 1 was in production for a long while too and was never completed.

I guess its a bit of a grey area, because the new one is not really called Last Hope 2, i just call it that to make sure there is no confusion between the two.

The Half Life - Last Hope Package is finished as a mod for HL1, but the production continues as a mod for Half Life 2,
What was almost impossible for us to achieve has been made easier then ever in the new game. There was many coding Issues that just could not be over come using Half Life 1.

But the good thing is that a lot of the ship maps and stuff port over just fine and with new Hi-res textures they look much better then they ever did before. All the weapons will be re-modelled, as even my own skills have come a long way since i first made them (The ones i made anyway).

So i dont think it will be long before there is a playable demo of the new Mod :)
