Gold Source (also known as Gold Src) is a heavily-modified version of the original Quake 1 engine, that powered some of the most critically acclaimed games of it's day:

  • Half-Life
  • Half-Life: Opposing Force
  • Half-Life: Blue Shift
  • Team Fortress Classic
  • Counter-Strike
  • Day of Defeat
  • and many more.

A powerful and versatile engine for it's time, it helped propel modding forward quite a bit with its mod development tools. And even though it's already 10+ years old, it's mod projects are still going strong.

Hello and Merry Christmas, ModDB!


We recently opened a beta testing of new engine version: Xash3D FWGS 0.19. This version contains many new features, such as player position interpolation, packet splitting, which will fix connect to many servers, graphical bugfixes and so on. We need your feedback!

You can download it in GitHub repo: Github.com. Just follow the README file in join beta test!

Send any issue related to beta version to Github.com.


And as the icing on the cake, mittorn has finally got an iOS device and did a port of Xash3D FWGS engine to Apple devices.

This video recorded by our tester and features early gameplay of Half-Life 1 on iOS.

I hope soon it will be available publicly.

Happy holidays, friends!

Just because its old doesn't mean its not fun. This engine is the kicka@s engine of the 1998"s. I salute Valve and GabeN. I love Goldsrc!
