HACK HACK HACK easter egg[edit]

Should I put a picture of the "HACK HACK HACK ALL DAY LONG" easter egg for Worlds Collide's trivia? --BlueFlamePRG 03:49, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Foxtrot Uniform[edit]

Just a note that it says this chapter takes place around the same time as the Half Life chapter 'Surface Tension', which is probably not correct, as the preceeding chapters occur during the final parts (and beyond) the end of the original game.

I think you've misread the text. It says that it takes place in the same area as Surface Tension, not at the same time. Oh, and please sign your comments. DAWeeE1 18:46, October 25, 2010 (UTC)
Indeed, it does say the same area, not the same time. Bramblepath 19:04, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Explanation for C4A1title[edit]

Half-Life: Opposing Force originally required Half-Life to function, however, the Steam version does not. The way Valve must've pulled this off was by just putting a copy of Half-Life in the Opposing Force files. The problem is, they didn't remove the maps, so by entering -devmode into the launch options and setting the map to C1A0, you'll find yourself in Anomalous Materials. All the sound files have been removed, but everything else works fine. The thing is, any chapter you enter will say CxAxTITLE (Replace X with the chapter's numbers). From my experience with mapping, I'm pretty sure that it's looking for the localization pool for CxAx, and can't find it, since Opposing Force uses "of" instead of "C". So, C4A1title is the result of the game looking for C4A1's localized name, but not finding it (I think). It's therefore probably not an Easter egg, but an oversight. Being able to follow Gordon, however, certainly is an Easter Egg. 20:10, 29 April 2020 (MSK)
