Dose ESF work with Half-Life 2? Well, dose it? I hear it dosen't cause it has a new engine but I'm not sure cause the guy at EB games said that Half-Life 2 was basicly the same as 1 just with a few new things. Well, anyways I hope it dose :laff:

I believe I read somewhere that all Half Life mods can be played with Half Life 2. No changes whatsoever will occur due to the game change.

It requires the mod team to convert the mod to the Source engine, and the ESF team has already stated many times that they will not be doing so.
You can't just play a HL1 mod on the Source engine as if it were the HL1 engine, though I wish you could.

I imagine dragondude is right - it is a different engine after all.

I doubt that HL1 is compatable with HL2. Too many engine changes have taken place to allow backwards compatability. FMOD doesn't even have backwards compatability . . .

I remember hearing gabe say (along time ago) that hl1 mods are compatible with hl2 :) but, we will have to wait for the release, maybe hl1 is free if you get hl2? (hl2 cd key works with hl1, just an idea though)

Perhaps backwards compatibility such as PS2 playing PS1 discs with no graphical improvement whatsoever?
