    People are apparently going to "mod" using BMS assets, but that's a bit sad they forgot about Human Error, which released its source code, and it had many things such as Grunts, Controllers, already done with Source Engine, and also the possibility to control Manhack with their POV.
    I just checked out human error and to be honest it looks nowhere near the polish and quality that Black Mesa is boasting. People want to mod Black Mesa because it is looking to be Valve quality, it's got completely new models brushwork and textures, all of which could be used to make some crazy interesting maps and stories. While Human Error looks okay, it has stiff animations, shoddy imperfect modelling and texturing, and it reused a great deal of Half Life 2's assets. People don't want to mod using their stuff because their stuff really isn't all that great, and the stuff that is good is 90% Half Life 2 stuff.

    Umm, I think your clock is off. It releases at 8:47, so there's still 7 minutes right now until the 17 hour mark.
    That's strange, I was basing it off the BMS website counter

    The counter uses client-side Javascript, so if your local clock is wrong, the countdown will be wrong

    Pretty sure it's the New Mexico timezone, so if I'm not wrong it's GMT-7
    Damn. I'm in Utah, and which is GMT -7, so it will actually release at the intended time, 8:47, at which I will be at school, wifi-less.

    The actual download page won't show up until 8:47 MST so not even setting it an hour before release will work, their webmaster designed it that way.

    I see, I thought they would put something humorous/easteregg/etc for attempting to bypass the clock

    This is nice, US west coast should be able to download around 2100 which is when I come back from my day job

    Nope, it just links you to http://release.blackmesasource.com/, which is blank.

    Not for long!

    I'm anxious to see the random face generator on all the npcs, that's seems to be pretty damn cool

    Edited:

    I imagine a countdown starting in this thread when there's a minute or two left; I'll also probably check the release page to see if anything comes up by then

    Oh boy, I can't wait to play this. I wonder if we'll still be able to blow up Magnusson's Casserole. I don't know about you, but that was one of my favorite parts of the original HL.

    It's actually a calorie counter.

    You have to lose weight to release Black Mesa for your country.

    Timezones have nothing to do with it. The mod is releasing 8:47 mountain time (GMT -7) no matter where in the world you are. Nobody gets it before anyone else.

    Eh, some of those animations look a little off. It's the clipping that's getting to me. The video is from March 2011 though, so hopefully they fixed it.

    At least the voice acting doesn't sound bad.

    If you have a 4+ gig flashdrive, you MIGHT be able to use portableapps' version of Utorrent to torrent it at school. Past that, though, it'll be a bit tricky, and you'll probably have to wait till you get home. At least, that is what I'm doing.

    Set up teamviewer on your home computer, grab the portable version on a school computer and connect from there. That's what I'm doing anyway.

    https://login.teamviewer.com/
    In cases like my school, you can't launch any .exe's
