Half-Life fans not equipped with virtual reality headsets may be interested to know that a new mod has been released that transforms the new Half-Life: Alyx VR game into a non-VR first-person shooter game that doesn’t require any additional equipment to enjoy.
“The Source 2 Pancake FPS Starter Kit is designed to be a shared addon base that any non-VR supporting addon for Half-Life: Alyx can use. Ideally, one would not use this to make an addon for Half-Life: Alyx that is solely for non-VR. Instead, you could use this to create an addon that works in both: non-VR, and VR if one wanted to. For instance: logic_auto supports two special outputs: OnVREnabled, and OnVRNotEnabled. These two outputs can be used to change the map depending on whether or not the player is in VR. However, making an addon that supports both, non-VR and VR may be challenging. It is strongly recommended that if you’re going to pick one over the other, that you pick VR over non-VR, as opposed to making an addon that is solely non-VR.”
“Please don’t use this to play Half-Life: Alyx and then complain about the game being bad!!! This was NOT intended to be used to play Half-Life: Alyx with!!! It is intended to be a base for non-VR supporting addons for the Source 2 Engine to use!!!
