Quake-Life is a QuakeC conversion of the core Half-Life 1 entities into a playable Quake mod. All half-life monsters and weapons are replaced with Quake 1 entities, and various button and trinkets are tweaked to be more "Quake-like". The goal of this mod if to allow modders to have maps that are multi-compatable for half-life 1 and quake, and also adds the ability for Quake 1 users to play through half-life levels.

Current Status

This is a copy of the original Quake Life open source release. The project has not reached error-free status as there are issues with entering some areas. It is a large undertaking to go through each map in Half Life and ensure all the areas are accessible and have monsters, weapons and other artifacts inserted at appropriate spots. The project is totally hackable and will remain open to anyone to make modifications.
