    Never played HL1 (I joined the party with HL2) and Valves reskin looked a bit lame, so this will definitely be on my shopping list next week.

    I am hoping Valve steps in and helps them out by hosting it on Steam. The team's FTP will die within minutes leaving only torrents to fill the gap, which wont be well seeded for a good few hours.

    Great stuff, I've been waiting for this for sooo long.:thumb:

    I got fed up of seeing "we've always gone with a 'when it's done' kind of approach" every time I checked for a finish date. It was slightly amusing at first, aping Valve a little, but I've want this for ages. :D

    It is indeed but I will be donating $20 because I feel their hard work and commitment over the years should be rewarded.

    Anyone who downloads this without donating at least a couple of quid is a bum-face.

    There I said it.

    Its a squadron of flying pigs, silhouetted against a blue moon and they're coming this way!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm in there and I will make a donation, they've worked on this a long time, I just hope it works.

    I'll be donating, partly for all the hard work and partly because I don't want a huge delay between this and the next part. As I understand it this is only 9-10 hours of HL1 and not the full game, so donation has to be made I feel to try and avoid what valve did with episode 2 and whatever is next (if anything).

    What if it sucks? Or what if you're already a bum-face?

    Or rather, since you said "is a bum-face" without specifying how long the individual has been one, that may imply that the person has already been of the genus, bum-face, prior to the decision of downloading. You can't just decide to change your biological makeup. That being said, if you are not a bum-face and you don't plan to donate, then I guess that just makes you a literary asshole.

    Fun fact of the day: I have a bum chin.

    I'll download it, have a play, and then make the call as to how much I want to donate. Unless it stinks something rotten (which I'm certain it won't), I'll give the devs some dollar.

    If I had a $ (or a quid) for every time this project was going to be imminently released, then id's probably have enough to buy myself a steak dinner.

    Nice to see it's finally done :)
