Default CZ Leaked

PHL:

Well, it appears that this "Anonymous Leaker" character wasn't bluffing, because now he's apparently released something that lets you play Half-Life and Counter-Strike using Half-Life 2's source engine. And he's also supposedly released an outdated build of Counter-Strike: Condition Zero (it's going gold Friday, see yesterday's story) and/or possibly something that deals with Counter-Strike 2. We really don't care to know the details, and we can't exactly confirm this because we refuse to download these releases ourselves. And we of course strongly suggest you don't download any of this stolen material either.

The latest release notes are pretty much devoid of any commentary from the leaker, but they do seem to call into question the existence of a complete HL2 beta. While the notes confirm a HL2 "pre-Beta" isn't currently in circulation, that doesn't necessarily mean that it doesn't exist and won't be released later. It's hard to say.

But I think it is safe to say at this point that perhaps Valve's and Vivendi's previous statement that only "a third of the source code was stolen" was perhaps slightly innaccurate.

Can someone confirm the existence of a leaked CZ build, Wolf? To anyone who gets the build, please check on the game features and let us know what's there and what isn't. And don't cite the source of your information [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img].

Yes, it was leaked last night around 12am. The file is a whopping 1.9gb and is nearly everywhere.

Shame to see two years of work on this godamn thing get leaked in a night. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

CZ has been in production from various devs since 2001.

Oh its real I got to "test" out the game.. Good work ritual valve screwed you guys and the community over. They said its cause the feedback from the community wasnt good. All I heard was great things about rituals work on the game. I really dont get valve and their decisions but oh well.

Gabe is a f*cking coward. He hired Ritual to do work and he should f*cking stand by Ritual's efforts instead backstabbing them by removing a large portion of their content without Ritual's knowledge. By including a small amount of Ritual's work in the "deleted scenes" section is a huge dis at Ritual. I think it's insulting. Ritual is proud of their work. It's too bad Valve openly states they don't feel the same.

What a way to strengthen developer relationships Gabe, no one likes you, douche bag.

Gabe needs to go see a god damn psychiatrist to get his priorities straight. He never knew what he wanted with Counter-Strike: Condition Zero and [censored] multiple developers over because of it.

Mock my words, Valve Software won't be around for many years because of Gabe.

Yeah, Gabe Newell is definitly a douche bag. I don't care if Valve has an excessive compulsive disorder, you can't just throw out the months of work of two developers and patch it all together with the pieces they like. This has got to be some of the worst decision making i've seen in the industry--How much money have they wasted to come up with something they could have done by themselves in 3 months? And to top it off, it ends up being a 20 dollar expansion pack.

amen. I cannot see a company that continues to piss off developers and it's community the length valve consistantly does.

Delays every-where. False promises, completely insulting developers..it's just sad.

I think I may actually search for this one (and I am completely anti-warez, mind you) because it's Ritual's version.

F*** Valve.

Hey, everyone..... been a while, anyway, this whole leak issue has made me very mad. I have trouble believing valve with this leak issue, but i guess they wouldnt really make something up like this. I can't really ever trust valve again, and I pitty the fool who hacked them.
Well, I just wanted to say hi, see you in a month or soo.........ZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz

Personally, from what I've seen on the Internet about this, it looks as if what got leaked was the original concept of CS:CZ from ritual BEFORE VALVe got their scalpels into it.

I think it's good and bad, good being that the world can see what a truly neato game ritual made, and bad because now people may not want to buy the ORIGINAL game so much after having played "the good son"
