CD v22.214.171.124 version last published 11 months agoThis installs and updates the game to the last World Opponent Network (WON) non-Steam version. Installs the CD version of the game and rips audio tracks to .mp3 files in game folder. Patches Blue Shift to v126.96.36.199. Applies official HD pack patch to all 3 games. Applies community "bshift_unlocked" patch to convert the game from standalone version to Half-Life mod.Requires Half-Life v188.8.131.52 and optionally Half-Life: Opposing Force v184.108.40.206 to be installed, and assumes community resolution/FoV/mp3 patch v1.1.2 has been applied.
For best results use Half-Life: Opposing Force - CD v1.0.0.x version - lutris:half-life-opposing-force-cd-v100x (https://lutris.net/api/installers/half-life-opposing-force-cd-v100x).
Run the game with Default OpenGL driver (3dfx mini doesn't work good with wine and the installer script will disable it) and select resolution to match your Desktop, e.g. run it with game args:
-game bshift_unlocked -full -gl -gldrv Default -width 1920 -height 1080 -console
If you want to use Direct3D then you must run it in window mode, e.g.:
-game bshift_unlocked -window -d3d -width 1920 -height 1080 -console
because it is unstable in fullscreen mode.
