Blue Shift: Unlocked
« on: April 03, 2013, 10:51:12 AM »
Long time ago I installed Blue Shift: Unlocked, and it worked really well.
Now I can't find it on my Steam Games List (Library) anymore.
All other mods that are insatlled are still there.

Anyone else has this problem?

It's probably due to Valve breaking all HL1 mods - Blue Shift Unlocked ran through HL1 if I recall correctly :\

How much do you know about this issue Alex? Reason I ask is because somebody should do a summary of what exactly broke.

From what I remember:
Valve changed HL1 to include support for Linux
To do this, they entirely changed the HL1 directory. You may have noticed your GCF doing a 100% change update some time ago.

I believe this means DLLs need rewriting, or that directories need placing elsewhere. Vic may have more up-to-date news on this.
For SP mods I'd recommend people revert back to their WON installs (eww) or use Xash.

the mod is still alive  : http://old.hl-improvement.com/downloads.php
the mod was not "allowed" to run after a valve update...try to rename your bshift folder if you still have it

WOW, it's true. Valve blocked Blue Shift: Unlocked! :cop:
I renamed the Folder of the Mod (and also the name of it), and now it's in the List again.
Like I said before, all other Modifications are still on the List.
Shame on you VALVE!

Why the hell would they block a mod that makes Blue shift moddable?

Probably due to the fact they didn't think of it first.
