How about some vids detailing the capabilities of the game engine and the game itself?
There's one on the Russian site, featuring Russian text and voiceovers, in two download sizes: http://www.revoltgames.com/homeplanet/files.html

Thanks for the kind words, but in my "defense" I'd like to remark that in the Netherlands, Xmas Eve isn't widely celebrated so, uhm, I just played the new MoH demo map for a while and then rounded up a few more news bits.

You must have the page cached or something... do a hard reload or clear your cache. They are really there.

The patch server is always very fast for me, but I agree the main server is horrible. You can find mirrors at 3D Gamers (http://www.3dgamers.com/games/alienspredator2/) and AvPNews (http://www.avpnews.com/).

why was FileFront mirror removed? something wrong with it?
It kept giving me a 403 Forbidden error and now they have removed the file altogether, hence it was removed from the story. You can check back later in case they add it again.

3D Gamers links seem to be broken.
The links are valid, it's just that the ftp servers are maxed out all the time. Two of these popular demos in one day is a wee bit much.

I liked the original title better: "Flying Heroes."
That was an entirely different game, released in May 2000:

Actually, they uploaded the screenshots using double digit filenames (pic01a.jpg, 02, ... 09, 10, ... 24) but the flash thingy referred to them by regular numbers (1, 2, ...9, 10...) so the first nine links produced broken images. They've fixed their flash today indeed.

2. Re: half life updater Dec 4, 2001, 20:42  Frans 
 
I recently found out that, while we removed the version 1107 auto-updaters at Valve's request when v1108 came out, the auto-updaters for those are hard to come by and the game doesn't always retrieve the latest auto-updater automatically, as you've found out as well.

I've asked Valve for new copies of the latest auto-updaters (both Half-Life and Counter-Strike) and will put them back on Blue's and 3D Gamers once I've got them (might take until next week).

You sure choose an old story to attach that comment to, by the way.

10. Re: Lesson one Dec 4, 2001, 18:21  Frans 
 
In my experience, it really doesn't make a damn bit of difference what's put on the game's website.
But in our experience, it does, and it's from that experience that Blue wrote his advice. You don't seem to have an idea how frantic early mornings are here, when the initial update is being compiled that contains many of the mod stories. Under that time pressure, there's little more frustrating than having to spend ten minutes figuring out what a mod is about and what it does. At that point, an email inquiry isn't going to help either.

There's basically two types of mod stories, those that we want to report about because we feel they're of interest to a significant part of our audience, and those that are mailed in because the author seeks publicity. The former mostly applies to the "big" mods but that still doesn't dismiss the author(s) from making it easier on anyone (not just us) wanting to find out about a mod to explain it on the site. For the latter, we do actually inquire when time permits, but in general I'd say that seeking publicity without explaining what for is just, well, rather short-sighted.

33. Re: Level 18 Dec 2, 2001, 15:40  Frans 
 
Hidden texts ahead

level 17: someone already provided a hint for this one, but another way to solve it is to place the refractor right above the right-most bulb.

level 18: here the fact that the double sided mirrors can also be passed by a beam down the middle is crucial, as is the refractor being passed through twice. More specifically: you have to go twice around the block.

Ok, time to tackle the final three levels.
