Nice an update :)

The last mod size I had was about 1.20gb so it may take up to an hour or so to download
depending on your connection & there server speed & the size of this update.

Update:The size is about 2.27gb was about 3hours for me to download.

The alpha games will have a much bigger filesize and will continue to grow during development as we continue to add new assets to replace the old nightfire PC goldsrc assets.

as more and more new assets get added to replace older ones, and we are sure there are no more dependencies left, then the old assets will gradually get deleted and file sizes will get smaller.

The current alpha still mostly uses the same maps as the last alpha a year ago as most of the changes have been non-visual (code related), and therefore the same FPS drops that the last alpha had still exist. Shortly all the maps will be recompiled at full settings for optimal FPS and we are going to replace the HL2 hud soon. What we are trying to do is to get a PLAYABLE alternative to the old official PC version of nightfire out and stable enough, so that the community from that game can hopefully move on to Nightfire Source. Basically gameplay mechanics first, then graphics.

Please make sure that you didn't accidentally make a nightfiresource folder inside a nightfiresource folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\sourcemods\nightfiresource\nightfiresource), this could cause that

Please create a folder called 'nightfiresource' inside sourcemods and move all the other files into there and it should work
