The free modification for Half-Life 2 'Transmissions: Element 120' is in need of people who can help port it to Linux.

They posted this on moddb asking for help:
QuoteHello moddb! First I want to say thanks again for all the wonderful comments and feedback. The response has been amazing.

Second, I'm looking for any programmers with previous experience porting Source mods to linux and mac who would be willing to help get TE120 ported. Please message me if you're interested and would like to see your name in the credits.

Third, an update will be coming soon. I'm hoping to add options to reduce the visual quality of the dynamic lights for older machines, and hopefully address other bugs & issues.


You can also vote for it on Steam Greenlight in the hopes of seeing it on Steam.

I think it looks fantastic, and the new gun looks to make things very interesting!

Well, I have it already working on SteamOS but I've been told that the new weapon could not work on Linux (for whatever reason).
(I haven't reach that part yet.)

Edit: Yep, the gun doesn't work.

What Linux/SteamOS-version is that and how can I get it? I tried it recently with wine, had to install the SDK 2007, but the fps were just around 2-5. I would like to try a native release here, even if it is an alpha or beta.

Is the same Windows version, just that it needs to be tweaked a little and used with Source SDK 21013.
But like I said, the gun doesn't work.
