This is the artfully balanced first-person shooter/real-time strategy hybrid based on the original Half-Life engine.Two player teams, one consisting of marines and one consisting of aliens, battle for control of a map and to eliminate the opposing team. The marine team is based around a central commander who views the game from a top-down view and manages his team's strategy and resources. The alien team shares what is visible for all alien members amongst teammates and has instantaneous communication of combat alerts to all team members.
This is the latest version as of 2 March, 2007.

What does not
What was not tested
Some fonts have changed and renders better. The weapon sound are cut when there are too much but it isn't a big issue. Hardware configuration: Intel Q9450, Nvidia 285 GTX, 2GB RAM. Software info: Kernel: 2.6.31-gentoo-r6 Nvidia-drivers: 190.53 Works flawless with max FPS (100 fps) except in big battle (50-70 fps). I've a better ping than in Windows and it's never crashed up to now.
