Guys, nearly 2 years I've been waiting for this mod to be released.

Nearly 2 years ago I bought hl2 and VORPX

Didn't even try this combination!!!!

I did yesterday and it is EVERYTHING I expected it to be.

Great visuals in Oculus rift, very fluid. Just almost native be!!

Don't wait for this mod!!! Buy VORPX, it is excellent and you can play a lot more games with it like Bioshock, portal, resident evil 7...

These all look awesome.

Honestly, people want this game, and after having years under your belt to create it, can you please not extend this time to remake all of HL2's props? I know you want to improve the experience for Vr and changing things such as fences to be 3d is understandable, but remaking every prop is going to set back this game's release date by years, and really, people just want to play HL2 in VR, they arent looking for a high res version of the game, theyre looking to play the game they know and love with its gameplay in VR. You advertised this as a way to play HL2 in VR and people have been wanting it for years, idk why you want to hold that from them for possibly more years just to remake things that people wont even focus on that much. I love the idea of this project and I want to be able to play it before Valve's HL:VR comes out, please dont turn out to be slower at a port than Valve is at a game.

The Half-Life curse:
Black Mesa: Endless development cycle
Half Life 3: No need for explanation
Hunt Down The Freeman: Should've stayed in developmental hell
Half Life VR: Still waiting for the official release
Half Life Borealis: Only concept art
And now this

The best way to imitate Valve's work is to work like Valve, not at all.

Hopefully they are working with valve to make this mod perfect and this mod is not dead.
