Black Mesa test chamber replacement

This replaces the original Half-Life test chamber during the Gman intro scene with the Black Mesa Steam release version.

Didn't take as much work as the Episode Two one did, had to sort through a lot of entities to figure out which ones were the bare minimum needed to get it to function.

I changed the camera's path slightly to give it a more dynamic feel and mood, whilst adding the benefit of showing more verticality of the Black Mesa test chamber.

Due to Black Mesa's newer engine, all the lighting features could not have been ported. This is as close as I can get it with the given amount of time I worked on it.

    Hey, can you please make a map version for the Original HL2 and please don't remove the recent amazing HL2: Update version of this map. Just add another folder with Vanilla HL2's HDR. Also, I have Viewmodel FOV problems with both Vanilla and MMod.

    I can't believe someone did this, this is super cool! I thought I'd never see it made.
    I'm guessing this will not work with the Cinematic Mod, however?

    tl;dr don't play hl2:Update without using Mmod too (for now)

    On a whim I did a few tests.

    hl2:U with Mmod flawless

    hl2:U without Mmod guard in interegation room opens door only a little and closes it again making it impossible to continue while barney keeps saying "get in"

    How can I get in if the door is closed, barney?

    hl2:U without your map and the door opens normally again.

    hl2 no update, no Mmod with your map door opens normally.

    hl2:Mmod no update with your map door opens

    Not sure what to make of this but it performs flawlessly in Mmod and in vanilla hl2. There is only an error if you play hl2 update without Mmod, which is frankly bizarre.

    I have discovered an issue. When barney knocks on the door and the metrocop opens the door window slider....thing, The door opens alittle before then shuts immediately and I can't progress. This is because the cop on the other side doesn't move out of the way enough for the door to open all the way.
