INSTALLATION METHODS

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

INSTALLATION VIA SYMBOLIC LINK:
IMPORTANT: IF YOU ALREADY HAVE AN ACTIVE "bshift" FOLDER IN YOUR ROOT DIRECTORY, YOU HAVE TO DELETE IT OR OTHERWHISE THE SYMBOLIC LINK MIGHT FAIL TO CREATE!

I think the Russian team who made the MOD for this game should be taken seriously by the authorities,

Transition from chapter 1 to chapter 2 is bugged, will not load chapter 2 upon transition...that being said. You guys are making something incredible here. Like Black Mesa, there is artistic licence in your choices but enough of the original to keep the nostalgia sense tingling. I love it and am more than excited for the next update. Thank you and C.C. for keeping my childhood alive!

@dr.f999, I think my favorite was the near last chapter, and the one the directly after Chapter 2

What is your favorite chapter in Blue Shift?

@thepunishedtrump

Not a step by step remake of the original. There is plenty of room for new, exciting content. As long as the spirit of BS remains there shouldn't be an issue. Hope this helps expand on my comment.

looking forward to this, it looks great

@TheSchorpion Maybe someday we will get Black Mesa Opposing Force.

Very good job, I supported you on paypal. I hope you will continue to do so, and hopefully we will see Black Mesa: Opposing Force soon

@playergod: Please turn off subtitles or change your resolution settings. There will be a fix with the next update.
