Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. GoldSrc, or Goldsource, is the retronym used internally by Valve Software to refer to the heavily modified Quake engine that powers their science fiction first-person shooter Half-Life (1998). The successor of the GoldSrc engine is the Source engine, which powers games such as Half-Life 2. Ken Birdwell explains it like this: "It is fundamentally just a heavily modified Quake 1 engine. There are about 50 lines of code from the Quake 2 engine, mostly bugs fixes to hard problems that Carmack found and fixed before we ran into them."show more
