Hey thanks man!! Makes me smile that someone remembers that game, much less any of the mod stuff that we did for it. I had a lot of fun making maps & tilesets for that.
I played TA not too long ago and I just gotta say that it's still just as fun today as it was years ago. And graphically it can still hold it's own for an RTS game.
As far as developing for HL2, I don't think it's out of the realm of possibilities...currently most of the guys are working on their 1942 stuff...and I have kind of ventured off on my own and have been working independantly on the Merciless mod for Call of Duty. ( http://www.mercilessmod.com
is the website for the call of duty mod)
I think the HL2 community will bring a lot of awesome talent out of the woodwork , and I hope that if we decide to delve into the Source engine and creat a HL2 mod , that we can make a high-quality product that won't get lost in the shuffle of the 1000's of other mods that will surely be developed.
Thanks for the feedback regarding my sound issue...looks like it's time to retire this tired old Audigy card. I have an M-Audio Revlation card that was sent to me, so i'm going to load that up and hopefully the problem will go away.
