releases lightgun-enabled Half-Life mod, 'gl.tter's HL-GUN!-'
gl.tter's HL-GUN!-, released today for download in version 1.0 under the >RIL_ banner, is the first ever single and multiplayer lightgun-enabled First-Person-Shooter game.
Written specifically for the ACT LABS GS PC lightgun system, HL-GUN!- features standard Half-Life gameplay with full GS lightgun/handheld support.
Single-player games can be played using the GS gun to aim/shoot and the handheld or keyboard/mouse to perform all other actions.
More importantly, for the first time lightgun-enabled LAN or Internet servers are also possible. Servers can be configured to allow lightgun players only, or a mixture of lightgun and standard mouse keyboard players, an experiment that looks set to create a lot of interest in the FPS community.
HL-GUN!- also includes a
stylish, idiot-proof launcher front-end that allows easy
configuration of all the GS system's buttons.
glitter's other lightgun mod, gl.tter's Q2GUNFRENZY!, has also been updated to version 1.0a to correct a conflict with the new HL-GUN!- release.
A full 1.0a
download as well as a patch from 1.0 - 1.0a
are now available from the - glitterstream - site.
feel free to rip any graphics/screenshots directly from the site (for reviews or news reporting only).

a pack containing glitter's animated logo for linking to the - glitterstream - web site is available here.
