Half-Life WON Menu Re-Creation

A GUI Mod for Half-Life

No ads for members. Membership is 100% free. Sign up!
So basically this just changes the color and size of the Menu Text and it adds several subtitles to make it closer to the WON version of the Half-Life menu while keeping the more convenient menu design the Steam Half-Life had.

It also includes a background that simulates the one featured in the original WON version.

Now, here are some features that are not included in this mod. (Consider it a To-Do list)

-The background is NOT animated. I don't really think that's possible.

-It does NOT include the grey text featured on the right of each subtitle. (It may be possible, but I don't know how to do that.)

-The subtitles do NOT have glow effects like in the original. (Once again, It may be possible but I don't know how to do it.)

Also something to note is that the background is a 4:3 720p image. (I couldn't scale the original splash.png any further, so I apologize for the inconvenience)

I would also appreciate every kinds of contributions to this small project, to make it look more polished and/or closer to the original WON version.

Most of the credit goes to the HLImprovementTeam for making the base of most of the work being displayed here.

UPDATE: Now it includes a Widescreen and a 4:3 Mode. To install either, just drag the contents inside the "16:9 Aspect Ratio" for widescreen, or the "4:3 Aspect Ratio" for 4:3 into the Valve folder in your Half-Life directory.

PS: I'd appreciate it if you rated and commented on this project again if you saw it a week ago. It was withheld for being in the wrong category and I wouldn't want it to fade away because of that.

    Is it ok if I upload a blue shift version of this?

    I mentioned before that a Blue Shift version of the GUI was planned, but I inevitably put it on hold until I could find the exact font used on the WON version of Blue Shift.

    If you know said font and your GUI uses it, then feel free to upload it. 

    If not, then I wouldn't exactly be okay with someone uploading something I was planning to do, without being as faithful to the original as I planned.

    Oh, and if you know the font used on the WON version of the game. Please tell me, because I'd rather make that version and post it myself.

    You could include the sounds of the original as well.


    Actually, there's a mod that adds some of the classic menu sounds, it's called Half-Life Classic Stuff and I really recommend using it with this mod (Except for the background, you should use the version I provided if you're playing on widescreen.)

    You can find it here: http://hl.gamebanana.com/gamefiles/4308

    The Background has an animation?

    -The background is NOT animated. I don't really think that's possible.



    If anyone finds a way to do that, I will gladly add it.
