FreeHL

Clean-room reimplementation of Half-Life: Deathmatch and Half-Life (Experimental, this means Singleplayer is NOT complete).

Similar to FreeCS, this aims to recreate the feeling of the original game. It's designed to work with the content from the CD version of the game. Currently I do not aim to support the Steam version.

Netplay improvements, such as prediction of both player physics and weapon-logic are present.

This is 100% original code, feel free to audit however you wish. No proprietary SDKs have been looked at or taken apart, unlike similar projects.

The engine you want to use to run this is FTEQW (https://www.fteqw.org), which is a project unrelated to this. It just happens to support the file-formats FreeHL needs.

Building

Clone the repository into the Nuclide-SDK:

git clone REPOURL valve

then either run Nuclide's ./build_game.sh shell script, or issue 'make' inside ./valve/src!

Obviously make sure that Nuclide has fteqw and fteqcc set-up for building and that you have some proficiency in QuakeC.

Notes

If you're playing a mod that relies on FreeHL, selecting it from the Custom Game menu alone works fine. However if you want to launch it via the command-line you need to make sure to add -game valve before -game modname. The order is important.
