Looks decent. Does it have a deep storyline? Can I play the second one without having to beat the first?

I haven't played the remake of the first Nightmare House, but I have played the original.

As far as I can remember, it's basically just some guy breaks down and goes to a house to get help, the Nightmare House to be exact.

I don't know about the remake though. Could be completely different.

If it's like Nightmare House 2007, the prior version(s) may be included in the download. (I'm counting the very first map pack as a "version".)

The first level is a remastered nightmare house 1. It acts as a prologue to part 2. After playing a few levels of NH2 I have to say the quality is very professional. Everything from the audio to scripted sequences are done exceptionally well. Anyone looking for a polished horror single player experience should really check this mod out.

Nightmare House 2007 (I guess NH1) was very well done. Better than their original map pack. And I don't do horror, so I'm lucky I'm usually looking in the wrong place when something happens... :)

Part with the two cat scans?

Transfer the fuse from one room to the other and then turn that machine on.

The axe? THE AXE!! I guess 12 guage buckshot just isn't as strong as the axe :p

Jebus christ i've been shooting at those wood planks for 5 minutes.. never thought to use the axe :mad:,



Yes very good mod, probably the best hl single player mod i've played so far, I hope for a nightmare house 3.

Great mod but and I have to say some parts really got me. I have to say though that some of the things were repeated a bit to much and lost the shock value. (the bodies being pulled/pushed)

Freaking incredible, one of the best mods I have played in a long while. This is easily the best mod for Source. Only gripe I had with the game was the too rapid pacing. The scares came to often that some were predictable. Personally would of preferred a slower, more cerebral experience but that's not to say what is here isn't fun.

Regardless this was an amazing achievement. Bravo to the team, some great talent. The set-pieces were amazing and intuitive. Thanks and kudos to the team, this game was a triumph.

HUGE SUCCESS!!!

One bug report though, my game froze during The Prologe --> Chapter 1.

Um guys...can anyone else tell me if this happened to them?

I can't remember what chapter it was, but it was right after the room where the intercom lady said "There is a zombie behind you". After getting out of that room, the intercom lady said something else, and as she was talking, my subtitles started spamming "DON'T LOOK BEHIND YOU" over and over again. I never looked behind me and came to a locked door. I decided that I would take a break at this point. After quitting and coming back after awhile, I came back into the area where the intercom lady was talking, but this time it never said "DON'T LOOK BEHIND YOU" and there was nothing behind me.

Please to god tell me someone else had this happen.

Nightmare House 2

+good game, maybe best mod in this genre
+good site
+good distribution: user have choice installer or archive (i hate installer)
+inside distributive all clean: none unwanted staff like thumbs.db, desktop.ini, .bat for compilier, source code of dll, files with 0 size, screenshots, savegames and so, no superhidden or read-only attributes
+nice fonts
+good gamestory and gameplay

+good team AI - I remember for the first time when I see Grunt AI in HLDemo, i want same ai for citizen of City17! - possible they use modified Alyx AI. when player attack - team also attack and see around, when player retreat - team also do it and cover player. You can't command him but they not run on fire-line as citizen

-icon_big not present
-2 places too dark - unplayable - no fleshlight or not worked, no any light objects for orienting Left|Right|Forward|Backward|Top|Down - want to change illumination

+some nice quotates from good games: HL F.E.A.R S.T.A.L.K.E.R L4D Paranoia
+have alternate ending

+game lenth more ballanced then CtoA, SM

Valve change something again, i see many bugs in console log and Mod crashed once :(, but my opinion:

to Players: PlayIT!

to Modders: Do as they!

to Valve: Hire their!

The "DON'T LOOK BEHIND YOU" messages are part of a random scare system in the game. Every once in a while, a random event will occur such as the "pssts" , the flickering flashlight, or the ♥♥♥♥♥slaps. They're just little things meant to scare you that happen differently every playthrough. So yes, this happened to me but at different times.

Seriously, excellent work.

I got stuck briefly in the heart monitor room, but figured that out after taking a break. Also took a bit too much damage at one point to continue so had to reload.

This mod is just... pure genius. Absolutely insane stuff.

The mannequins, scare me to death. I freaking hate those things in real life. Bioshock used them to great effect, and here I think even BETTER.

Hen: you win as many Internets as you can handle, for a lifetime. Keep this up and ... well, I dunno. :) More win.

You should have been instructed to download another SDK base, before playing. I don't know whether it was the same issue as crackodile had, but maybe ask him, as I know he complained about having to dl that before playing. Also, did the game RUN for you, or are you just saying you had the console open and those were the things you think are supposed to be corrected?

Pwns4you!

Just finished playing it about 20min ago. Absolutely great. They should have had these guys do FEAR 2. All I was really planning on doing was get it started, save and then play it tomorrow but once I got started I couldn't stop playing.:):):cool:

Very creepy and tense. I saw bits of FEAR1/Condemned/Portal influence in the mod.;)

Thanks for the heads up OP! Very enjoyable evening thanks to you. Nite nite!:D

Could someone please explain to me why do we need to install the source SDK 2007 to play this mod. All other mods I've played before didn't have this requirement.

Looking forward to playing this mod.

... Because this mod wasn't made using the 2009 version. Wouldn't that be kind of obvious by the fact that it requires 2k7?

Some mods are built on the SDK base rather than one of the games (HL2/Ep1/Ep2) that you already have installed.

Some mods are built on the SDK base rather than one of the games (HL2/Ep1/Ep2) that you already have installed.
And that's how it should be, too.

The way I understand it, the concept of the Source SDK Bases (AppIds 215 & 218) is that they don't change (much, if at all), so mods using this should be able to run in the future, too. As the VDC entry (http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Source_SDK_Base) puts it, they are locked to a particular engine branch.

But mods built directly on games like HL2, EP1, EP2 (AppIds 220, 380, 420) will have to deal with Valve changing engine, like the recent update to the Orange Box engine.
