I've been waiting for a long time to get this awesome game to work on ODROIDs.
Thanks to @ptitSeb who ported this game to ARM using the Xash3D engine and some other libraries, combined with his version of GLshim we can now play Half-Life in 1080p on ODROIDs!!!
Just look at these pictures:
One of the Robots from the Intro of Half-Life
A look at the alien planets with the monsters that invades Black Mesa Reasearch Facility right after the accident at the beginning of the game:
The game offers nice effects, although it's already 18 years old (damn I feel old right now^^)
This game was one of a kind and made the First Person Shooter genre big!
Similar to Doom many years ealier this game had a major influence on the game industry.
There were countless mods for Half-Life, such as Counter Strike or Team Fortess.
These games were originally only Mods for Half-Life but later on became their very own games.
You can install the game engine form repository (using the jessie/main or stretch/mainpackagelist) with the command:
Code: Select all
apt-get install xash3d-odroid
Other mods could work as well (for example Counter Strike). Multiplayer seem to work as well.
Please note: Not all mods will work correctly.
You need the Original game in version 126.96.36.199.
Place the "valve" folder in your home folder in a subfolder .xash3d other mods go in the same folder for example:
Code: Select all
odroid@gamestation-turbo:~$ ll /home/odroid/.xash3d/ total 12 drwxr-xr-x 9 odroid odroid 1024 Feb 4 21:18 bshift drwxr-xr-x 12 odroid odroid 1024 Feb 4 21:38 dmc drwxr-xr-x 14 odroid odroid 3072 Feb 4 21:42 gearbox drwxr-xr-x 12 odroid odroid 1024 Feb 4 21:42 ricochet drwxr-xr-x 15 odroid odroid 3072 Feb 4 21:45 tfc drwxr-xr-x 17 odroid odroid 3072 Feb 4 23:19 valve
