Fork of Xash3D engine that ported to Android. Allows play Half-Life out-of-box.

Post news Report RSS Still Alive: VR support, customizable touch controls, cs16-client leak info

We're Still Alive. That's all big news since November.

Posted by on

Hi guys! We have many news (good and bad) for this long time. I, a1batross, will try to share all big news with you.


Customizable touch controls

Our developer mittorn is made a big changes in the engine. He is wrote a native touch controls and removed Beloko's controls. Now these buttons fully customizable. There isn't need much words, just watch this tutorial made by SergioPoverony.


Virtual Reality

Third party developer Solexid is did another changes in the engine. Now Xash3D SDL support Side-By-Side rendering and gyroscope headtracking. This will affect every mod that runs on Xash3D SDL. Watch his Half-Life 1 demo which present Virtual Reality in-game!


CS16Client Beta Leak

One of our betatesters did the bad thing. He is leaked beta build of CS16Client to some people.

You may read our article about this in VKontakte (only in Russian): Vk.com

I think that would be better if we release current beta version than it will do someone instead of us. You may download in "Download" section on ModDB. But we don't give any support about this version!

You need Xash3D Android v0.17 test or higher to run it.

That's unfortunate that you have to deal with people like this, but it's good that you handled it professionally. Just tested CS on my phone and it runs great, you did an amazing job on that one and a lot of people happy. Also in 0.17 i've noticed this line : "Special xashds mode that allows to play singleplayer mods with XashDS (support loading win32 server dlls)", can you tell us how exactly run a mod with said mode? I want to try few mods.

I *kinda* got it running, by adding -dll dlls/opfor.dll to launch params ( tested on WON opfor ), but all i get is an error, " .dll has bad ELF magic", tried 3 mods, can't get any to work, same error, maybe i am doing something wrong?

It's done in XashDS Android.
It's just a headless engine compiled for Linux x86 and running in emulator. Same thing runs on servers(without emulator, ofc)

If you will set "xashds_hacks 1" in XashDS many SP features will work.

Just start a server with maxplayers 1 and connect from Xash3D(or any mod through Xash3D).

Got brutal half-life running, but sadly none of the client.dll functions work, hence missing a lot of stuff, like explosions and effects. Is that how it's supposed to be?

Because we can't emulate client.dll without emulating whole Xash3D. :(

Right then, was worth a try. Still, you guys did an amazing job porting Xash to android, not only that, but it also runs fantastic. I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavours, you're doing all of us a favor c:

Use this:
set rcon_password ds
set rcon_address 127.0.0.1
set xashds _ hacks 1
set coop 1
set maxplayers 1
cl_cmdrate 60
cl_updaterate 60
set timeout 9999999999999
set rate 90000
set sv_reconnect_limit 0
set pausable 1
set cl_timeout 9999999999999

in userconfig.cfg
After that, run xashds with -dll dlls/opfor.dll (for opfor) and xash3d. New game and game save should work.

So there are many mods that have problems running with Xash ranging from weapons you can't pick up to some not even running, when will we see complete mod support for Xash Android?

Really excited to play through Half-Life 1 in VR. Thank you for your hard work! Is there a command line argument for enabling gyro tracking? "-vrmode 1" works for the display, but "-XASH_ANDROID_GYRO 1" didn't and I'm not sure what else to try.

We are still waiting gyro support, which done in Java, overriding SDL.

So after some testing with 0.17 I still see that a bug in Afraid of Monsters DC occurs where music isn't playing, some props and models are missing (Toilets), and that the knife and other weapons are missing aswell. Are there any plans to improve mod support to fix these problems?

AOM have it's own gamecode.
Until it isn't open sourced, we can't do anything.

Your CS1.6 was working great on my old phone, but it crashes when I load a map on my Asus ZenFone 2, but HL works fine. I hope you can fix it for the release! ;)
