Is it because the average computer has no trouble running HL1, and if ESF used HL2 then less people would be to play wordwide because even the most sh!ttiest computers can run HL1??

Probably because the programmers don't want to start from scratch.

Because people would like to play 1.3 before the end of this decade. I don't feel like waiting around for someone to remodel and reskin everyone.

If by valid, you mean it's an excuse most people would buy, then yes. It isn't the real reason for not switching engines though.

relearning, redoing almost everything, is going to take a really long time

The physics alone would be worth it.

It'd only take 5 years if you guys went back into hibernation mode.

And i thought the reason was that the team wanted to quit after they finished 1.3

So porting it over to source would just be a waste of time since a new engine would bring with it ****loads of new bugs. And possibly oild bugs that are allready fixed here.

I'd rather work on something that can actually produce some income then starting over with ESF on source.

We could just say that there are mixed reasons why ESF should stay on HL1 ^^

1.3 should look amazing for a Half-Life mod. The only thing you'd be missing out on is bigger maps and physics, but on the bright side, it'll run on more peoples computers on HL1.

As others have said, I think the main reason it's not being done is because they'd have to learn how to code for source, have to remake all the models, skins, animations, code, maps, everything.

The team wouldn't be starting from scratch if they did port to the Source engine.

From what I understood 1.3 is going to be the last version of the game, the game that got people together when HL1 was on top. My opinion of why the team wont make esf on HL2 is the fact of Hl1 is and will allways be a memory of good times for the members. They want to say goodbye to the production of the game the same way they started together. I think that is the way I would feel.
