Valve's Gabe Newell sent along a whopping big update on the state ofHalf-Life covering many bases. The mail also included a new Half-Life map called frenzy,made by Dario Casali suited for small one-on-one or two-on-two matches, here's a local copy (265 KB)on GamesNET FTP. Also expect the online release ofa security guard multiplayer model by Doug Wood in the near future, as well as amultiplayer level called The Hill, which will be distributed with an upcoming issue of PCGamer. They've also been working with comic artist Shannon Wheeler to produce amultiplayer model of Too Much Coffee Man that PC Gamerwill also be distributing. Harry Teasley isworking with people who are interested in building maps, models, add-ons, expansionproducts, etc. Two other resources are Wavelengthand Chris Bokitch's new page. Peopleinterested in commercial publication should contact Scott Lynch, Sr. VP of Sierra Studios. The updatecovers a number of other issues including CD problems, key problems, what's in store inthe future, and much more. It's informative, but huge, so I posted the whole shebang on a separate page.
