Okay, I was able to fix the problem. I was getting a Steam Ticket Refresh error for anything I tried to do on Steam all of a sudden, which seems bogus because I've never told anybody my password and the other computer in the house that has Steam installed was off. I was able to fix that problem by going into the Steam folder and deleting the file, ClientRegistry.blob. So if anybody else has that kind of problem, try deleting that file first (unless you know your account was hijacked). I just can't pinpoint if the problem because I just reformatted the computer yesterday and I don't know if it was something that happened while reinstalling things on Steam or the mod messing with it.
Yea, this mod is pretty cool. Granted it is lacking a little bit of polish and there is a frame rate issue (I don't think I have it as bad as others, at almost full settings I get perfect FPS indoors and 30-40 outdoors with it dropping to 15 FPS in extreme cases), but for that kind of quality on a freaking Half-Life 2 mod is crazy. They went through and pretty much made everything from scratch.
They're working on their first patch which soon focus on things like people's FPS problems and such.
It'll take a little getting used to because it's just about one hit kills and you don't know where you're getting shot at from almost like America's Army, but thankfully it's not as slow paced as America's Army because you can move faster than a jogging speed and you can respawn in a somewhat timely manner in the form of a reinforcement wave system (think Day of Defeat respawn waves).
In the end, I'm impressed and this is one of the mods I've been waiting for for a long time. I'm waiting for new episodes of the Minerva mod (or Mestasis or whatever) and the Black Mesa mod to come out as well.
