This new mod which I heard has been being worked on for 4-5 years was released today. It's a mod of half life 2. You need the SDK (source development kit) to play it. Here's the link:http://www.insurgencymod.net/ . If you don't have the source development kit,download the half life 2 demo on steam, then you can download the SDK free! Hope you guys like! I think it's alright, but have never been a big fan of CS:S or HL2:DM.

Yea, I've been following this mod for a while now. I'm having some trouble installing the mod and I'll have to download it, but I'm trying to play it.

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.

.......Anyway.....

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.

Ya I thought it was pretty good. I always die though or end up killing my own team mates :flowers: .

Anyways, I know the FPS thing your talking about. I lag playing the game pretty much all the time, usually around 10-20fps outside and 30-40 inside. Anyways I tried turning the graphic settings down to 800x600 resolution and everything low or off. I noticed my FPS was about the same, if not worse. Then I cranked it down to 640x480 and it really lagged. I turned all the settings back up to med/high and 1024x768 res and it works better. this game has lots of potential, especially for being free :thumbsup: .

This mod has received its first update that should fix some issues (such as some FPS problems).
