Half Life 2 Old Engine Rerun
« on: September 14, 2014, 13:51:32 »
Hello! due to glitches that have been found (or ones on new engine that can be adapted to work on OE)
I feel the need for a post to be made documenting all of the tricks and shit for OE for possible use in a Rerun
This will be updated if any are found (not alot at the moment but things like the d2_coast_03 skip are doable in OE)
c17_06a skip
trainstation_01 gate jump
d1_trainstation_06 triggerdelay NOTE: might not be usable due to all weapons being invisible forever
canals_03 skip
possible train skip
c17_10a triggerdelay
prison oob stuff
SPT for old Engine
Commands to remove jitter:
cl_interp .0015   (note things like elevator doors will be glitchy)
cl_interp_npcs .1 (prevents NPC's from looking like shite)


PHASE 2

To me, when you load a game, you have left it.

Good idea, I'll start looking for some trickjumps that can possibly save time.

I'll try and help you guys route and maybe with the run. Also I'd suggest doing the run on Easy for some sexy ass damage boosts.

Also Yalter made a autohop dll's for OE. Just replace your current bin folder in your /hl2 folder with this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/77xustqoviejo72/bin.rar?dl=0

There's some places in prison where you can go oob and potentially save a lot of time and if we had autopausing getting back inbounds would be super easy.

Those don't have the consecutive frame jump protection, I wouldn't recommend using it for actual attempts.

autopauseing helps with the segmenting
also for things like save glitch

Yeah, running on Easy is always faster in Source runs as you can fit in more damage boosts in 100/100 hpap

Since you go upwards when save/loading you have to go back inbounds from below the map which also means your save/loads will have to fight with gravity so autopausing would make it a lot easier to minimize the effects of gravity.

There's also this. Not sure if that only works in new engine, but it's worth trying. You can maybe do a ceiling clip in trainstation_03 according to this thread.
