VERY IMPORTANT: this level won't start on your computer if you don't install the Blue-Shift patch for the version


* Description *

Single player level for Half Life:Blue-Shift made of 12 maps.

These 12 maps aren't of an high quality level, seen that i couldn't find the time to concentrate on them a lot, but are funny and are featuring a lot of scripted sequences.

The firefights aren't very very difficult so i suggest to choose the "Difficult" level setting when beginning the game.

If you encounter some difficulties or you wanna to play at the best "The Infinite Shift" read the hints.txt file that contains some suggestments to play better; this file can be found in the "bshift" folder.


* Story *

The story starts where the original Blue-Shift ended: after having saved himself from Black-Mesa toghether with Rosenberg and the other 2 scientists, something goes wrong and Calhoun is teletransported in the alien dimension for a computer error.

... yes i know, isn't very original....but is just an excuse to put the hands again on the weapons!)

* Known bugs *

There aren't bugs of relevant importance, but in the level there are some small problems(like the elevator in the 4 level).

There are some graphical errors with the Shadows actived.

I suggest to install also the HD-PACK to have a better graphic and to solve some visualization problems in the animations i saw with the older models.
