Half-Life Easter Egg - Peoples Thoughts
Ok, first you have to find the half-life or opfor icon in your computer that launches the game. If it is opfor, it is usually on your desktop. Anyway, right-click on it, and select properties. You then have to modify the target command line that launches the game.
If you are playing opfor, your original target command line should look like this: C:\Sierra\half-life\hl.exe -game gearbox
Now, we are going to enable something which is called developer mode. This also allows you to have all the weapons from half-life and opfor at the same time! (if you want the code, it is "impulse 101" (without quotes))
Modify the target command line to look like this:
C:\Sierra\half-life\hl.exe -dev -console -game gearbox
(remember the spaces are imoportant!)
Basically this enables a mode that was sort of a debug mode for the programmers of the game and allowed to see how the game was working. So basically the only downside to this egg, is that when you encounter new things in the game it will be displayed in the upper right corner of your screen. For instance some model (like otis or barney.mdl) is loading.
But anyway the basics of this egg are as follows: find, say, a scientist and talk to him if you want. Now, hit him once with a weak weapon like your combat knife. If he runs away, follow him until he stops and starts cringing in place. Now, try to make him follow you, and in the upper right hand corner of your screen, it will say over and over, "I'm not following you, you evil person!!!"
Also if you hit one of your soldier buddies, it will say "Friendly grunt is suspicious!" Hit him again, and then it will say, "Friendly grunt is now mad!!!" and then he (of course) starts shooting you.
Finally, if you use the barnacle and latch onto ANY enemy, and kill it with the barnacle, it will say (in the same place) "Hurt!"
Phew, well thats my egg. Email me if you have any questions or comments.
