Half-Life CD Menu Sounds Restored

A Sound Mod for Half-Life

Restoring the CD version of Half-Life...One step at a time.

------------------------
DESCRIPTION:
------------------------
Like many of you know, when HALF-LIFE was ported to Steam, it lost some features and functions that could be considered a large part of HALF-LIFE's aesthetic. One of these features was the specialized main menu, which HALF-LIFE and all HALF-LIFE based games benefited from.

With the Steam re-release, the entire menu was changed (apparently to support Steamworks), along with the sounds of the menu. These sounds are gross, so I changed them back to the CD version's.

Please note: the only sounds used by the menu is the release-click button sound. This means you won't hear that special "woop" effect when the text zoomed closer to the screen in the CD version. I cannot fix this, but the main button click sound along with the silent button rolling is there.

I didn't see anyone else upload a mod like this, restoring the proper sound. I have tried to make it as high definition and close as possible to the CD version.

------------
NOTES:
------------
I wholeheartedly recommend using this mod with HowardHeyman's "Half-Life WON Menu Re-Creation" mod! This mod compliments that one absolutely beautifully, and helps to fully re-create that CD version experience.

ISSUES:
------------
None!

Enjoy!
