Opposing Force Beta (Early Concepts Mod) - A Mod for Half-Life: Opposing Force

Opposing Force Beta Content

The purpose of this mod is to recreate models and sounds that have been modified during development.Although there is not much such content, as the Beta version of Opposing Force itself has not been leaked to the Internet or made public. All we have is a few dozen screenshots taken by developers and beta testers, as well as promo art and pictures from videogame magazines of the 90s, where in the illustrations you can see something that was changed/deleted in retail.I had to dig deep to find screenshots, promotion art and other materials. On this screenshots you can see the comparison of the models from the release and from the beta.

The mod turned out to be really small, but quite interesting. I noticed that there is only one single mod on the Internet about Opposing Force Beta (I don't know how it is, whether it is closed or maybe not).Hopefully we'll see more projects about an early version of this add-on in the future.

HOW TO INSTALL: To install the mod, add its contents to the gearbox_hd folder (in case you have hd models enabled or at least this folder has not been deleted). If you do not have this folder or for some reason the models do not appear, then place the contents of the archive just into the gearbox folder. Gearbox_addon or valve_addon will not work here, the mod will only run not completely, without some materials such as a new menu.

Thank you for your attention and enjoy the game!

    Good job with this, but there are some issues:

    1. Otis bugged and no mouth movement. The really beta Otis was very different to MP model as well



    The original NPC Otis had better quality than MP model



    2. Voltigore beta seems to have more low def textures
    3. Where are beta grunts as they can be seen in the truck screenshot?
    4. Green Shoocktrooper has a lighter green in the screenshot that in the model yo've done

    Good job on Pit Drone, although it doesn't have the grey device that it's seen in beta screenshots (if you do it, add it as a optional model). Congratulations for this work, I wish I have your knowledge on moding!

    Man, you’re really spoiling us! Still, really good work, wonder if you’ll do Blue Shift.

    Even though there are only very few screenshots, you made a very good recreation. I love it!
