[GAME ON] Hidden: Source

Mission Briefing: Hunt down an invisible enemy

What is Hidden: Source?

Hidden: Source or The Hidden is a mod for HL2 that places a well armed swat team against Subject 617, otherwise known as "The Hidden", the subject of a secret genetic experiment. This experiment gave him enhanced speed, mobility and incredible strength. He is able to cling to any surface and the experiment rendered him completely invisible.

Storyline:

In the early 1950s human genetics experimentation was taking its first, tentative steps. Amongst many other black projects, a team of British scientists working at an Infinitum Research experimental station stumbled across some remarkable phenomena involving DNA manipulation. This led to deeper research with dangerously unpredictable results, often leading to human patients losing their lives in irresponsible and immoral experiments.

Time passed on, and by the mid 1990s the failure rate of the experiments had been reduced from 75% to a mere 15%, enough for Infinitum to move onto the next stage: Biological Light Refraction. The British team were hoping to unravel the possibilities of light manipulation to create the perfect covert military agent. Early into the new millennium, due to a gross miscalculation, a series of tests on Subject 617 led to a massive synaptic trauma leaving the patient with multiple genetic anomalies.

The subject was left in constant pain and with unstable DNA. The subject escaped captivity, killing anyone that got in its way. The I.R.I.S. (Infinitum Research Interception Squad) team have been deployed to return the subject to a maximum security Infinitum Research facility for further study and dissection. The entire project was considered a failure: all funding ceased and development was discontinued while all records and traces of the experiments were destroyed. Infinitum Research denies all knowledge of any form of human DNA manipulation but are more than happy to comment on the possibilities of cloning human organs inside suitable animal donors. It is believed that these organ cloning experiments form the main cover for their human genetic manipulation experimentations.

Subject 617, known as 'The Hidden', must turn the tables and become the hunter instead of the hunted as the I.R.I.S. team close their net around him.

Where can I download this?

You can download it here. You'll need HL2.

    I love this game. It's like Predator 2, only without the suck.

    Also, last time I played there was a way you could alter your graphics settings, or something, that let you see the Hidden much easier. Is that bug still in? I remember the developer being a bit of a dick about it and delaying a fix.

    A bunch of us played this while waiting for TF2 to release.

    Reading this thread now hearing people talk about exploits to see the hidden easier makes me feel better, because I had a bitch of a time seeing him yet I would get routinely blasted by fuckheads when I was being quite stealthy.

    The other problem, perhaps because of my above issues, was that most servers turned off the pigsticker. Being the hidden was already fucking hard vs 8 people, when you have to hit them 3-4 times each it just got stupid impossible.

    MOBA DOTA.

    pfft

    The Hidden really isn't that hard to spot, you just have to practice looking for him, there are a lot of telltale signs.

    and yeah knife kills are really really hard to get

    Maybe me and my friends suck as hidden, but we got together and and played a full game and it was freaking impossible for the hidden after we stopped being idiots and worked together/stopped running around making it impossible to spot it. Even when using grenades, the hidden simply couldn't kill someone fast enough to not get shot by 8 other people.


    If my connection were good I would so play this online.

    Holy cow, this is some terrible lag. It's like for every step forward I take half a step back.

    Still fun, though, provided my teammates keep their mouths shut. Even a newbie like me managed to pop the Hidden once.

    It's fucking ridiculous when you get to play a game against a Hidden who just really knows what the hell he's doing. There could be 8 of you in one area and he just leaps like some kind of lemur from hell.

    Leap - Stab - Leap - Stab Leap - Leap - Stab stab stab - leap - grenade - leap - Taunt - Stab

    When I used to play this with SE++ guys, Wombat!! set up the "happy room"

    Basically he knifed everyone to death except blankspace, hung everyone up in one tiny room, and lead blankspace into the room.

    So, is there any server in particular on which we should be playing?

    I will reinstall this. If you have a server post the info. I hate those cocky ass pubs that taunt me while they are the hidden. This games great though. I get real creeped out and just pop rounds off all over the place.

    Also dead bodies hanging all over the place is the best.

    Whenever I played Hidden, everyone bitched at me pigsticking. I am playing against 8 men with guns, who may or may not be exploiting in some way to see me even easier. The most common thing was "PIGSTICKER GIVES NO CHANCE TO FIGHT BACK FAGGOT!!!" Well no shit. I'd hope so. Are you saying I should play by some arbitrary set of rules, me, a naked man with a knife versus 8 armed commandos? Fuck you, idiot guy.

    I don't think it's very fair for the Hidden to not have pigsticking on. I can see people bitching if some Predator type dude was slaying everyone with ease. The Hiddens pretty fragile though. It's best to act as a team and stay calm. Which is great until that sneaky fucker starts tossing his explosives. So many ways to get killed by him.

    I'm a terrible hidden though. You can see me coming from a mile away.

    Some PA Hidden'ing would be most excellent.

    I played this for a little while.

    I saw the hidden really easily, but wasn't much good playing as the guy myself. I remember I took ages to learn how he worked.

    It's a good mod, soundly executed. But I don't think the maps are that great and it suffered from douches last time. Maybe I'll redownload - the PA crew kicks ass.

    I love Steam Groups, such a good idea for situations just like this.

    After a big following emerges and a server is set up and everyone is used to the game, the community features generally stop being used (except for special events), but at the start of everything it works great for organizing. The C. features are rarely used for PA TF2 now, but at the start it was huge.
