It strives to provide a free-software multi-platform replacement that can be enjoyed akin to the other games we enjoy playing over at Frag-Net!
Currently the focus is on multi-player games, using the original content from the CD-version of Half-Life. Feel free to mess around, but you do not need to let us know about the various things that do not work quite yet!

You will need a copy of FTE QuakeWorld for your platform. Place that in the root of your Half-Life game directory, that’s where your hl.exe normally is.
In order to play any of the mods, make sure the FreeHL (valve) game pk3 is present!
