    Most pistols and SMGs have optional silencers. All revolvers, pistols and SMGs can be used akimbo (yes, even the .50 DE). Many pistols and revolvers will have optional skins (for instance, Berettas available in both matte black and steel).

    ---------------------------------------------
    game modes include

    last man standing
    mook match
    single player mode !!!!
    Duels
    and more to come...

    heaps of features and more to come check the site for halflife mod and the forums for updates and info

    this isnt a mod that some kid thought up of and has no background on modding, so its unlikely they are looking for members (i could be wrong so if you have invaluable skills they wont be wasted with these guys).

    they coded and implemented heaps of features that were originally not in the halflife engine.
    (mainly diving, cloth physics for trenchcoats, 3d weapon muzzle flashes,and others)

      its going to rock

      they have so many original ideas its not funny and most of them are being implemented right as we speak.

      for example usually when you have dual/akimbo guns in a game you press fire once it fires starting from one hand then alternates to the other

      e.g pressing fire four times would be left,right,left,right. or the other way around =P

      well in the next version of the opera being released you will have left and right handed attacks.

      two seprate buttons one for left, one for right.

      thats right you can hold two guns and empty a whole clip from one gun instead of being forced to alternate all the time or you could fire both at the same time

      this applys to alot of things in other words attacks wont just go in a linear repeating fashion.

      due to this button layout it will open up alot of options with melee attacks as well


      i think this and the star wars "troopers" mods are going to be the best first generation of mods that come out.

      as in total conversions.

            I loved the mod Half-Life and I'm going to love the UT one ^-^
            Did you know Gabe (from Penny-Arcade) done the Art for that mod?

              yup they even did a strip on it as well

              and two PA skins in game and that guy on the top left corner of the web page.

              its amazing how fast the RA are working on this build as well,
              in the offical forums they have screen shots of maps in progress and a shot showing the character doing a roll in first person perspective.

                Bah, Marathon had this back when it came out in the early 90s

                Ya, and this is probably going to be the most awsome mod that comes out for UT.

                  Where? I looked all over the forums for this, found a couple weapon pics, and that was it.

                      funny that i took my own advice and read the .plan files

                      a wealth of information is there.

                      like they already have an simple internal build done
                      :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :up: :up:

                      also heres a simple little mod that works well for dueling in mods
                      its made by one of the guys in the opera team.

                      -------------------------------------------

                      The "MegaPistol" mutator is NOW AVAILABLE!

                      http://opera.redeemedsoft.com/opera_...03_MPistol.zip

                      - Assault rifle is only weapon. Bullets only - no grenades.
                      - Firing rate of 0.7, or 2/3rds of a second between shots. Left and right mouse buttons fire.
                      - No spread. Bullet goes where the crosshair is.
                      - Damage is monumental: instant kill, even through shields or at long range
                      - When you kill someone with it, you regain ammunition

                      Drop files in to the UT2003 "System" directory, then go in to "Instant Action" and pick the "MegaPistol" mutator.

                          It was one of the truly original mods for half-life ... so it's good to see that the original team has decided to move to better things

                          Just one important question : will the bots perform the same crazy stunts that humans are capable of in that mod ?

                            its still a bit early to say but by the look of things i would definatly say you can look forward to the bots diving and rolling as well.
