The screenshot was enlarged, so as to give you the full picture. I'll give ya a screenshot of the same thing they took. However, the movie was blurred because it was needed to record everything the guys who were speaking as well as the crowd, and also the movie. You can't really get picture perfect quality with that sort of equipment running.
But, Half Life 2 has been delayed so many times, with so many upgrades being produced for it, and if it sucked then I'm sure it's fans would be disapointed like they were with Deus Ex: Invisible War's graphics. (Xbobx Graphics... meh...)
But, since all of you seem to be out to get me in this general case, let me try and fail, so that then you can rub it in my face later on. I'm sure it would be so much more satisfying.
What does cheating have to do with MODing a game? Nothing...
And besides all of that, you guys are looking at an ALPHA for the game for gods sake. ITS AN ALPHA! And usually Alpha's tend to look better then they really are. But other then that, I loved the original Half Life, and that's why people still play it regardless of graphical quality. Counterstrike has more players then Starcraft and Battlefield 1942 combined. MORE then that even. It just keeps going up.
assuming you know better than people who have much more expirience than you, etc
Where the hell do you get off telling me I said that? I'm sure it will be some cheap-ass excuse such as "it was that post over there you put up a long time ago." Even so, EVERYONE seems to mix up everything I say, in such a case if I said something such as "great job, keep it up" people would take that for "OMG! THIS SUX! I HOPE YOU DIE!" I thought adults were supposed to act more their age, not degrading people left and right.
Im going to keep up on this project and, as I said, get all my **** together and then get on the ball with this. You dont have to play it or help, but I dont want to hear any bull**** from you that wont get me anywhere except flaming on the boards. I dont have time for this, and I dont think the admins have the patience to delete every goddamn post from here all the way back just because you guys cant keep your mouth shut.
