    II. About Underhell
    ============================

    Underhell is an Episodic Modification for the Source Engine. Chapters will be released once they are developed.

    What you have just downloaded is Chapter 1 and a remake of the Prologue with the newest engine features created by the development team.

    Underhell borrows from many genres and would be best described as a First Person Shooter Action/Adventure Psychological Survival Horror game with RPG elements.
    These RPG elements include secondary quests with multiple outcomes, random survivors to rescue, different items to scavenge, and getting better equipment through both exploration and game events.

    ---------------------------
    .Notes.
    ---------------------------

    1.) Alt-tabbing the game can cause performance issues, crashes and graphical glitches.

    2.) Make sure to close all unnecessary programs before launching the game for optimal performance.

    3.) Running the game with the console enabled will disable the menu. Please note the message in the console:

    Underhell is a storyline based mod with pre defined features that are enabled and disabled within the levels.
    Tweaking the features will result in playability issues and will most likely crash the mod.
    It is recommended to avoid playing with the console commands.
    So please close the console, and enjoy the game.

    ---------------------------
    .The House.
    ---------------------------

    The House acts as the hub for the mod. You can come back to it anytime via a special button in the Main Menu. Every time you do something in The House it will save automatically.

    If you start The House via the Chapter Selection menu it will completely reset everything in The House and you will lose your progress.

    When you are in The House, you can check your e-mail, your mailbox, answer the phone when it rings, or just explore and try to uncover the mysteries that lurk in there.

    Even though Jake's wife has recently passed away, you are not completely alone...

    ---------------------------
    .The Game.
    ---------------------------

    Underhell is split in 3 different "zones"

    The first is The House. Each new chapter will have its own version of The House with different puzzles, things to discover, and diary pages of Jake's late wife to be found.

    The second is The Dreams. With each version of The House will come a set of dreams only accessible during night time via the bed in The House. Dreams will give you bits of information about the story,
    and might help you understand some future events better. They are very different from the rest of the game in both their narrative and gameplay, and focus mostly on exploration and solving puzzles.
    They have a few twists to them that will challenge players since they are not necessarily bound by earthly rules.

    The third zone is The Chapters where Underhell really takes place. You access a chapter from The House, and when you are done with a chapter you come back to The House. When everything has been done
    in The Chapters, The House, and The Dreams, you must go to sleep in order to access the next version of The House. That is, when it's released of course...

    ============================
    III. Story Background
    ============================

    You play as Jake Hawkfield, a Special Weapons and Tactics operative who recently married and moved in with his beloved wife.
    But soon after those happy events, his wife dies under mysterious circumstances, leaving only clues that suggest she committed suicide.
    Jake falls apart, and only his best friend, mentor, and boss Frank is there to help him get over his grief.

    The mod begins with a wake up call from Frank ordering Jake to come down to the station.
    An armed group of elite soldiers have taken control of a hospital and all its personnel.

    But Jake will soon realize that this is not a common hostage situation...

    ============================
    IV. Tips & Hints
    ============================

    1.) It is recommended not to play with the console commands. Nocliping around the maps or using "impulse 101" could cause some level glitches.

    2.) You can kick open doors. Doing so will kill enemies standing behind it.

    3.) Underhell has free aim, ironsights, and scopes. Use ironsights and scopes for better accuracy.

    4.) Weapons and enemies have realistic damage models. A shot to the head will kill most enemies in Underhell.

    5.) Avoid staying stationary during combat. Keep moving or you will be overwhelmed.

    6.) If you forget what to do, press the Display Objective key (default TAB).

    7.) Watch your endurance meter, the vertical bar at the lower left corner of the screen. It controls how quickly your stamina is refilled, how likely you are to bleed, and various other important things.

    Today is a big day. It's Mxthe's birthday. A man who has patience i have never seen before. He never gives up and always gets the job done. He had a dream to work in game dev team. Everyone has. And he does now. He did something to deserve 10x more. And that something is called underhell. Even though he was only one left in team he didn't give up and didn't lose hope. He planned it for almost a decade and in 2011 prologoe was released. Everyone was amazed how great mod was. And after 2 more years with little help he blew everyones mind with chapter 1. He delivered and keeps delivering masterpieces. Insurgency, and story mode for dangerous rays. He even made fricking hl2 ep3 maps and a mini game that could be #1 on the web, but i don't know anything about it. You are a great man and i wish your dreams come true and wish you everything good. Happy birthday jeremy faucomprez.

    Hello everyone, Underhell has been released and I am already getting bug reports ! Which mean you are awesome in finding bugs an details, and I will definitely release a patched version once I have gathered enough bug to justify uploading the whole thing again.

    If you have seen any bug in the game, or anything not working, please do not hesitate to post down below !
    If possible attach a screenshot of the error, bug, or glitch, and a short (or long) description of how it happened.


    Thank you very much !

    No subtitles, or bad subtitles ?
     
    In game captions:
    - change steam language to English or
    - add this to Underhell launch options: +cc_lang "english"
     
    Game doesn't show in the Steam Library?
     
     
     
     
    Before posting your error, be sure to try this :
     
     
     
    Make sure to update your graphic card drivers, as Underhell makes usage of some custom shader effects.
     
     
    KNOWN ISSUES/CRASHES :
    Too many verts for a dynamic vertex buffer (xxxxxxxx>xxxxx) Tell a programmer to up VERTEX_BUFFER_SIZE This crash most often happens when ALT+TABBING the game, but it can also happen in very large areas with lot of combat happening.
    It is very rare, if it happens, just load your latest save and it should not happen again within the same map.
    Just reload and continue playing as normal.
    "Can't load lump 8, allocation of ******** bytes failed!!!" This is a very rare memory crash that happens after many hours of continuous play.
    We intend to fix it as soon as possible in a future patch. If you get this error, simply reload your latest save from the Load Game menu, and the error should not happen again.
     
     
     
    FIXED ISSUES/ CRASHES:
    CFileSystem_Steam::Init() failed: failed to find steam interface This is a SteamPipe related issue, unrealted to the mod itself. Head over to your Steam TOOLS list.
    Right click your SOURCE SDK BASE 2007 and click properties then click the BETAS tab and chose the SteamPipe beta as the beta you would like to opt into.
     
     
     
     
     
     
    This appears to be a drivers issue on some graphic cards. See the Black Mesa FAQ for more info.
    Try reducing shadows details to Medium or Low, or try disabling HDR (set it to none)
     
    If above fails try the following fix :
    (Warning: This fix will disable the flashlight shadows, and cause flashlights to go through walls)

    MAKE SURE TO DISABLE MSI AFTERBURNER BEFORE LAUNCHING THE GAME :
     
     
     
    Engine Error: Could not load library client
    This is most likely related to a corrupt download/extraction of the file, try re-installing or redownloading.
    If it still happens, try logging out of your Steam completely, and log back in. :  Thanks to "Ardent_Assailant" for the fix

    AS BUGS GET FIXED, I WILL BE REMOVING THE MESSAGES TO KEEP THE THREAD AS CLEAN AS POSSIBLE.
    DO NOT GET OFFENDED OR BELIEVE YOU HAVE BEEN IGNORED, THIS IS SIMPLY TO KEEP THIS THREAD ORGANIZED.

    If only it were that simple, but it's not that easy, if possible at all.

    I love the idea, but as you said, finding a good dedicated artist willing to put so much time into it is a problem.
  10. Mxthe received reputation from Dune Jumper in Funny Scary Videos thread   
    During beta testing, many of the testers recorded themselves playing, unfortunately most of the videos were not published because it would have spoiled the game, we did however released one.


    Point is, the game is out now, and I am seeing a lot of funny scary videos of Underhell out there, and I don't know about you guys but it makes me laugh.
    So here is a USER videos I found, if you record a video with voice (it's better to hear you scream) or find one just post it here


    Let's get this list growing !

    Second, it's highly likely that frank Greene was working for someone else to earn tom's trust to look after jake. At one point, frank passes his job on spying on jake to Angelo and his team. Not sure why considering he was close to jake at all times. Jake's wife died by Angelo and his teams hands and frank had to cover it up. He killed the team and nearly Angelo, had to silence the investigator jake hired and make the event look like suicide.
    Jakes wife, now a spirit, often visits jake to make sure he doesn't stumble on secrets she didn't want him knowing. his wife knew something about jake, his past, and died because Possibly Angelo wanted to keep her mouth shut. She haunts jake to prevent him from finding out the truth because it might affect him in the worst possible way

    Playing through the House in Underhell Prologue, Chapter 1, and playing through the main story, I think I can safely say I understand exactly what was going on through the first chapter. Chapter 1 was a re-created memory of the UDRC incident, however Jake was using the ARC as a placement. Micheal, the guy who induced Jake into hypnosis, wanted to delve into Jake's psyche to find the connections between UDRC and ARC.
     
    (note that everything I say isn't clear cut facts. But this is what I conclude.)
     
    The ARC outbreak occurred BEFORE the UDRC. Jake grew up in the ARC complex and during the events that transpired, nearly died. (It is theorized that Jake is immune or a potential cure for the necrosis like virus but I'll get to that later) Why Jake remembers his father's journal and its content, as we see during the gas chamber scene in Chapter 1, is because Jake read through it at one point in his past. Micheal believed Jake had a certain connection and he wanted to discover what that connection is. The PMCs captured Jake at one point, before or after the Gas Chamber, and the events where Jake was arrested and prosecuted were fabricated to ensure Jake doesn't realize he's remembering both the ARC AND the UDRC.

    WAT? It's nothing to apologize for
     

    Of course. Also, this is another proof that the Chapter One was taking place under The City, not in Arizona. If "ACE Assembly Line" would be in Arizona, who would be interested in transporting one of them all the way to The City, ONLY to kill one guy - Frank Greene?
     

    Hmm... I'm not so sure. In Prologue, Ito's men were simply realizing
    in the facility and I don't think that Ito wanted Jake to come here and slaughter many of his men
    For the first time, Jake was gassed with the virus because one of the soldiers was too furious at him for killing so many of their men. This guy disobeyed Ito - he exposed someone (in this case - Jake) without direct order from his superior.
    Sorry for such large off-top, but it was probably necessary to explain few things
    But maybe you're right. Maybe Ito knew about Jake even before Frank called him at the very beginning of the game?
    There are so many unexpected connections, that it wouldn't be very surprising.
     
    I have a feeling that the plot in Chapter Two will get EVEN MORE complex, epic and serious.
     
     
     
    Returning to Jake's guilt, I'm really curious why
  17. Mxthe gave reputation to Pawlo_86 in Some theories   
    1. Chapter One takes place in UDRC.
    2. Fly to ARC and escape from ARC were fake.
    3. There is something about Hermit. In Hermit's Lair you can see a newspaper with artcle about firing of house. Last view of House during Void (after 3rd reading of Tom H diary) shows firing of house.
    4. After 4th reading of Tom H diary in Labs you can see Guilt in tube.
    5. In Level 5 you can find first clues that Ch1 isn't set in ARC but in UDRC. During "first light" cutscene you can see Parking roads and offices in Level 5 are very similair to UDRC offices from Prologue.
    6. During Prologue you can figure out that "terrorists" invided city from Arizona - so PMCs were already in ARC and outbreak happend there too.
    7. Posterus was developed in UDRC. Jake was part of it. Something bad happend in Labs. Tom left Jake to Frank.
     
    RANDOM THINNKS:
     
    - i'm not sure about Jake 1 and Jake 2 theories (clones) but cloning may be a part of story,
    - Jake is somehow releated to ARC too because he projected his memories from UDRC into ARC,
    - Jake can be a Cure for infection,
    - House isn't real,
    - Events in Underhell so far:
     
    Hospital, Mall, Parking, UDRC offices, Berserk, UDRC prison, faclity outbreak, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4, Level 5, Train, Warehouse, shoot in head, capture by SWAT, Police Station (projection of memories from UDRC into ARC), city outbreak,
    Dead City...
     
    Underhell is awesome HL2 mod! One of my fav games all the time!

    I appreciate it.
  19. Mxthe received reputation from f0xX in Did they abandon the SMOD version of the source engine?   
    Those are things that we would want to fix.
     
    -Making sure that killing an enemy with a silencer is discreet.
    -Shooting at an enemy who is in Idle should do 2x the amount of damage. (Easier stealth kills)
    -Killing an enemy with a melee weapon while he is idle would make him die without screaming/alerting anyone nearby.
     
    Those fixes will hopefully be implemented in the Steam release.

    Nope, no messages were received (doublechecked the spam folder). I guess I should try his e-mail directly.
