The Hidden: Source

Given our kin-ship with HalfLife 2, here is a separate forum to discuss anything related to HalfLife 2 and the various Mods out there (eg, Gary Mod, Zombie mod etc)

The Hidden: Source

Postby Tommy-TBone on Mon May 19, 2008 12:24 pm

Here's a pretty cool mod I found recently. Anyone here play it? It's a lot of fun but it's only a beta and the servers are quite shit.

http://www.hidden-source.com/

Not everyone will enjoy the gameplay but at least it's relatively original. Nice level design as well.

Yeah, it would be interesting to see whether we could sneak in a server for this on one of the existing UKCS servers.

Its a seriously fun game. Simply the ability to stalk an entire team and hang them up upside down in a corner of the map (just like Predator) gets my vote.

Its difficult, but really scary at times!

Any one got a pic of bodies hanging upside down in this game?

Yeah I've played it alot over the years. It's really good but only if you have servers that have disabled pig sticker (Instant kill) and only a couple of grenades depending on how many people on the server (Like 1 grenade per 2 people) for the Hidden.


You do come across some insanely awesome Stalkers though. They take out whole teams, pinning everyone to walls proper Predator like with no grenades and pig sticker. Now THAT scares the shit out of you, as your team mates are rapidly dieing all you see is faint blur of the Stalker dashing about the room :P

I don't like it when the pig sticker's disabled. But only because I'm shite without it.

Has anyone played the original Hidden for HL1?

Exactly. Pig sticker disabled makes it much more fun for the Humans, just imagine a really good Stalker with pig sticker :evil:

A UKCS server for it would be great, especially seeing as it's a mod made in the UK. But what are the chances of that happening?

By the way, anyone that plays it, add me on steam so we can have a game some time.

yea add me.

im re downloading atm :D

this game is awesome.

TC might consider putting up a server if there is enough people wanting to play on it.

Thing is tho it takes TC a lot of his time to do this and if there isn't enough players wanting to keep the server going for long periods of time its unfair to ask him to add this to his platter as well.

Well all it takes is one person who REALLY wants to give up some time to maintain it, make sure its always got people playing in the evening, and care for a group of people (make a community for it).

The good thing about this is you can only get 8 people into a server. So its very lightweight on server resources.

Postby Im over here! on Mon May 19, 2008 4:37 pm

This is an awesome mod.

The best is in those moments of panick with team mates dieing around you people panic and start randomly fireing clips off, sometimes tki'ng. For some reason I just enjoy seeing this happen.

But This has to be my number one faviourite mod. And I would be very pleased if aout 10 - 15 members of the community decided to play it. But if interest gets greater then it won't be as special. :? Just haveing a select few that everyone knows is a bloody good hunter or an amazing hunters hunter would be great!

I've been playing it off an on for a while, too.

I occasionally lament at the lack of other UKCS people playing it, so a server would be nice.

Right that's a server up now. It's just called "UKCS Hidden". Tell us if it's working ok.



Here's a screenie I took for CraKinSh0t's request.

Please don't use the UKCS name in the server name. We only have our own servers on our own hardware I'm afraid. :)
No harm in organising people to join the server though, while we don't have our own.

We'll see if TC is willing to try it, if there is any spare capacity left, and if there is enough interest for it to be worth his time.
