Sure, why not?

Violence has never been much of a problem for me, especially in a kooky game like half life... smack a guy with a crowbar, and he's reduced to leg bones and meat chunks.

But, I love changes in perspective. Even when they're as asininely censored as German copies of violent videogames. There's some fun comparing, as much fun as comparing the DOS Wolf3D to Nintendo's copy.

Was wondering, since I own the US copy, is there a way I can "activate" the German copy from Steam or like download it? I mean sure, I'll bet there are like dozens of sources of pirate copies of Half Life but... anyone actually played that version before?

    • Replaces all the human soldiers with robots
    • The humans' blood is yellow (but the aliens' is still red and there is still blood on the walls)
    • Replaced blood particles with gears and springs
    • Makes the scientists and security guards sit down when they are shot
    • Replaces Gina, Gordon, and the scientist's models with a version of Gordon's suit with a helmet on, to make them look less human
    many of these changes are copy paste, anyone can do that

    • the yellow blood is active in the configurations
    • the robotgrunt can be found in SDK, or better yet, can be found easily in Svencoop
    • what is going to be difficult is to get the NPCs, since they use exclusive animations for the German version

    Actually, Half Life's censoring has been removed in May if I recall correctly. So I cant even play the cut version anymore, steam automatically installs the uncut version.  I am from Germany and I absolutely hate the censored version. Why would anyone ever want to play that ? :D

    lock violence in options, or in console, set value to 0 in all "violence_" commands
