    1.0 >Introduction<
    ==================
    Hi everybody! Raining Metal goes on with his guide writing! Half-Life: Blue
    Shift takes place in Gordon's trusty ally's shoes, Barney! This game is
    unfortunately short, but still interesting nonetheless.
    
    ---------------------
    1.1 >Version History<
    ---------------------
    
    Version 1.01

    1.3 >Story<
    -----------
    Note that this part has spoilers.
    
    Barney Calhoun, a mid-level Security Guard at Black Mesa, has been sent to fix
    anelevator at a vacant area. Unfortunately, Aliens begin to pour in! Unlike the
    other protagonists in the other games, Barney just wants to escape alive! He
    finds a Scientist, Dr. Rosenburg, to help him with his journey out. First, the
    pair must go to a secret lab where they will make a portal to the outer gate...
    
    ============
    2.0 >Basics<
    ============
    This section teaches the player how to play Half-Life.
    
    --------------
    2.1 >Controls<

    the control setup via the options menu.

    -------------------
    2.2 >Hazard Course<
    -------------------
    The Hazard course can teach Barney how to swim, shoot, use objects, interact
    with people, solve many puzzles, and much, much more! I highly recommend
    players new to this game to go to the hazard course before starting the game.
    
    Area 1: Moving and Jumping.
    This area teaches trainees to jump. Through pipes to long gaps, this
    exercise will be an important method to learn.
    
    Area 2: Using the Enviroment.
    This sector teaches guards how to use things around the facility, such as
    elevators, first aid stations, wheels, boxes, and more! This also tests players
    how to use the crowbar and the flashlight.
    
    Area 3: Combat & Swim.
    This target range gives players how to fire weapons and use the secondary
    triggers. Also, this area contains a pool which the players will need to swim
    across to the next area.
    
    Area 4: Defence capabilities.
    The area here represents hazards that the player will likely encounter in the
    game. It also makes use of the Armour.
    
    Area 5: Interacting with civilization.
    The final place requires the player to use a Scientist to open up a door.
    To finish the course, the player must drive a train to the exit.
    
    -------------
    2.3 >Puzzles<
    -------------
    Half-Life: Blue Shift contains many puzzles. Some are hard. To get past them,
    read signs and try to find out how they're connected to the problem. Some
    objects might be needed for the puzzles.

    Heh, heh. These adorable creatures are good for arena-like areas. They will
    refuse to attack other aliens however, and should be used on military-only
    sectors. If they don't find any other targets, they might attack the user!
    
    -----------
    3.2 >Items<
    -----------
    These are the items Barney is likeley to encounter during his journey. He

    Purpose: Gives Barney Armour.
    
    Barney does not have the use of electrical Armour, unlike Gordon and Adrian,
    but he can pick up Armoured Security assets to fill his Armour quantity. Armour

    Barney takes.
    
    ********
    *Helmet*
    ********
    
    Console Name: helmet.
    Purpose: Gives Barney Armour.

    Station can not be reused.
    
    ********
    *Turret*
    ********
    
    Console Name: N/A.
    Purpose: Weapon.
    
    Found mainly at Military zones, Barney can use their weapons against them and
    the aliens. There are more convinent ways to use the many turrets though, such
    as breaking down walls and doors.
    
    **************
    *Healing Pool*
    **************
    
    Console Name: N/A.
    Purpose: Replenishes Barney's Health.
    
    Found only in Xen, these won't heal as fast as the first-aid stations, but have
    an infinite supply of wound-fixing.
    
    **********
    *Jump Pad*
    **********
    
    Console Name: N/A.
    Purpose: Gives Barney a high jump.

    certain spots.
    
    ------------
    3.3 >Allies<
    ------------
    These are the few allies Barney will get help from. Some of them will need to
    survive in order to do their task.
    
    ***********
    *Scientist*
    ***********
    
    Weapon: None.
    Health: Low.
    Speed: Medium.
    Special Abilities: Healing, High Security Clearance.
    
    These lowly fellows are mainly the civilians of the game. However, they can be
    allies when Barney's health is below 50, and can open doors for him. They
    should not be attacked by Barney, because if he does so, then they will run
    away from him. There's few of them in the Train Yard, and one of them needs to
    be rescued in order to escape!
    
    *****************
    *Security Guards*
    *****************
    
    Weapon: Glock 9mm.
    Health: Medium.
    Speed: Medium.
    Special Abilities: High Security Clearance.
    
    Not many of Barney's colleagues are met after the disaster. Barney will only
    find most of them as corpses, or unable to help him in combat.
    
    -------------
    3.4 >Enemies<
    -------------
    There are many hostile forces to encounter, and they are not stupid. Barney
    must take these foes out as quickly as possible.
    
    -----
    Human
    -----
    The military are not at all friendly to Black Mesa, and are very hostile to
    Barney. They are very smart and will do everything they can to flush him out!
    The soldiers can use radio communication to send alert to any of their nearby
    squad. There are also some mechanical technologies that the humans use.
    
    *********
    *Trooper*
    *********
    
    Weapon: MP5/M16, Grenades.
    Health: Medium.
    Speed: Medium.
    Special Abilities: None.
    
    These are the standard soldier Barney will encounter. They are very numerous
    and a threat. The Troopers wear gas masks.
    
    ***************
    *Shotgun Grunt*
    ***************
    
    Weapon: SPAS-12 Gauge, Grenades.
    Health: Medium.
    Speed: Medium.
    Special Abilities: None.
    
    These soldiers only carry the SPAS-12, so they are more dangerous when up
    close. Take them down from afar. The Grunts wielding shotguns wear
    balaclavas.
    
    ***********
    *Grenadier*
    ***********
    
    Weapon: MP5/M16 with Grenade Launcher, Grenades.
    Health: Medium.
    Speed: Medium.
    Special Abilities: None.
    
    Apparently only African-American, the Grenadiers are very dangerous due to
    their skill with explosives. They also have a cigar in the normal version, a
    beret with the high-definition pack.
    
    **********
    *Commando*
    **********
    
    Weapon: MP5,M16 (with Grenade Launcher), SPAS-12, Grenades.
    Health: High.
    Speed: Medium.
    Special Abilities: Alert Squad.
    
    The squad leaders are the highly respected officers of their platoon. They will
    alert their squad if they detect Barney, so if he is going for a stealthly
    approach, he should take them out first. They wear a beret.
    
    *********
    *Turrets*
    *********
    
    Weapon: Gun.
    Health: Medium to High.
    Speed: Fast deployment.
    Special Abilities: Laser activation.
    
    Most of these are green and on the ground, but some are on the ceiling, and can
    be used by soldiers. Take them down with any kind of weapon.
    
    *************
    *Medium Tank*
    *************
    
    Weapon: Turret.
    Health: High (Can only be destroyed by explosives).
    Speed: Fast Turning.
    Special Abilities: None.
    
    This armoured vehicle is a very big threat. Take it out if Barney sees it with
    explosives.
    
    ---
    Xen
    ---
    The Xen invaders are very numerous and can teleport to earth at unexpected
    times, so Barney should be aware of this.
    
    **********
    *Headcrab*
    **********
    
    Weapon: Claws.
    Health: Low.
    Speed: Slow.
    Special Abilities: None.
    
    The weakest creature in the game, yet the most common. The headcrabs can be
    hidden everywhere, so Barney should watch out.
    
    ********
    *Zombie*
    ********
    
    Weapon: Claws.
    Health: Medium:
    Speed: Slow.
    Special Abilities: None.
    
    This is the result of what happens when a headcrab attaches to its host. Take
    these out far away, since they only have melee attacks.
    
    ***********
    *Bullsquid*
    ***********
    
    Weapon: Spit Acid, Teeth.
    Health: Medium.
    Speed: Medium.
    Special Abilities: None.
    
    They have something against headcrabs for some reason. Anyhow, these creatures
    are no friendly ones. Don't get up close to them unless Barney has a death
    wish!
    
    **********
    *Barnacle*
    **********
    
    Weapon: Tongue, Mouth.
    Health: Low.
    Speed: None.
    Special Abilities: None.
    
    It's fun to see other people get sucked up into the barnacle's and get digested
    by it, but of course, it's not as pleasant when Barney is.
    
    ******************
    *Vortiguant Slave*
    ******************
    
    Weapon: Lightning, Hands.
    Health: Medium.
    Speed: Medium.
    Special Abilities: Nightvision.
    
    The first Xen creature that has a brain that Barney encounters, these shy
    Xenizens don't attack Barney because of their own will, due to slavery in Xen.
    Their lightning attacks are deadly, so Barney must be quick against them.
    
    ********************
    *Vortiguant Soldier*
    ********************
    
    Weapon: Hivehand, Hands.
    Health: High.
    Speed: Fast.
    Special Abilities: Nightvision.
    
    These creatures are really meant for combat. They are more deadly than the
    slaves and the soldiers! If Barney is to encounter one of these, he should
    take them out.
    
    ***********************
    *Vortiguant Controller*
    ***********************
    
    Weapon: Energy Orbs.
    Health: Medium.
    Speed: Fast.
    Special Abilities: Fly!
    
    The boss Xen characters are only seen in Xen, so take them down fast!
    
    *******
    *Snark*
    *******
    
    Weapon: Teeth.
    Health: Very Low.
    Speed: Very Fast.
    Special Abilities: None.
    
    These are usually released in vents or by Barney himself. Because of their
    small size, bullets don't usually work against them. Explosives, on the other
    hand, are effective.
    
    =================
    4.0 >Walkthrough<
    =================
    Here's the noticably linear walkthrough for the noticably linear story mode.
    
    
    ----------------
    4.1 >Insecurity<
    ----------------
    On the Tram, Barney rides through some tunnels in order to get to Securty point
    C, where he will be assigned to his first task of the day. During the ride, he
    can see a distinguished Scientist (Gordon Freeman) also walk onto a following
    Tram. When he gets off, the door is locked! The Guard on the other side will
    open it for him. Meanwhile, watch the Scientist as he passes by on his tram.
    At this time, the Guard has unlocked the door for Barney to enter. Talk to him.
    He'll say that the place has been all broken lately.
    
    Go through the doors and go right. Talk to the Guard at his post. He says that
    Barney cannot go through this door until he gets his sidearm and uniform on.
    Go downstairs, head to the lobby, and talk to the Guard there. He knows what's
    going on today. Go right and up the elevator. On the second floor, go left to
    the surveillance room with three screens. These can be looked through for some
    extra features to find. Go to the opposite side of the hallway and head to the
    Armoury, where the manager will give Barney his sidearm. In the shooting range,
    there's some ammo Barney should collect, but not spend here. Return to the
    elevator and lobby, and face the guard on his chair. To the left is the locker
    room. Go there and collect the uniform in Barney's locker. Return to the Lobby
    guy and he'll point out that an elevator has broken down. Go to where the Guard
    prevented Barney to advance and he'll allow him to go through.
    
    In a room with turbines, go up and through another door. Barney will meet up
    with a Scientist reading the daily Newspaper. He'll state that the Trams are
    out of order and that Barney will need to head toward the elevator through the
    lower hallways. In the dark corridors, Barney should turn on the Engine and
    find a switch near the door to turn the lights back on. Keep going through the
    linear hike until he comes across a river. The Tram contains a guy in a Tuxedo
    carrying a briefcase. Once its across, press the switch to bring down the
    bridge. Advance until Barney reaches another Tram station.
    
    The elevator's nearby. Hack the elevator console to make it work. As the three
    people go down, something has gone wild in the labs across. The elevator goes
    down further, and below, some very unnatural things occur. After this chain of
    unfortunate events, the elevator falls down and knocks Barney unconscious.
    
    ----------------
    4.2 >Duty Calls<
    ----------------
    Barney wakes up in front of what appears to be a Houndeye eating parts of a
    Guard! EW! Get up there, grab the Crowbar, and shoot those things! Smash the
    boxes to find some more 9mm ammunition, and explore the area. The door is not
    going to move unless the power is turned off. The source is located in a room
    not too far away from here. Barney will need to smash it to allow the door to
    be opened (smash all the boxes to search for more ammo first). Go through the
    door.
    
    In the room with all the puddles, avoid the water and kill all the Headcrabs in
    the room. When they are all killed, go through the door to find some ammo and
    another headcrab! When the room is cleared, go up the stairs to find a
    Scientist who tells Barney to get out while he can. Back down at the desks,
    push a chair towards the locked door. Jump on it and over the fence. Also, back
    where the Scientist is, Barney can shoot the red barrels from there and open
    the gate by force.
    
    There's a lift here. Activate it and jump on it quick! When Barney approaches
    the bridge, some Houndeyes will appear. Shoot them all and the Vortigaunts. To
    the left is the controls to open the door to the next area. In the corridor
    filled with boxes, there's some more Houndeyes waiting to pounce! To the left
    is another Houndeye with a corpse. Grab the Helmet there and use the controls
    to lower the busted lifts so that Barney can jump onto the boxes and to the
    ladder (the first lift will require a box nearby so Barney can jump onto that).
    In the damaged area is some more Vortigaunts that spawn. Shoot them to the
    afterlife and go down the ladder towards the sewers.
    
    First, go right and jump across the catwalks. Turn both wheels on the pipes to
    stop the steam from blocking the way. The lower catwalk leads to a corpse with
    a SPAS-12 and the notification that this way out is futile. The above catwalk
    leads to a switch. Activate it so that a lift ahead will go down. It contains a
    box of explosives and a few Vortigaunts. Shoot the abominations and go back to
    where Barney started on this paragraph. The other way has a ladder attached to
    a pipe. Go up and towards an area with Barnacles and a body of water.
    
    Shoot the Barnacles above and go down to where the barred window is. There's a
    valve in this area that will make the water rise so that Barney will be able to
    advance. Collect the supplies and attack the Aliens that spawn. Another one
    will appear on the bridge, destroying it. Jump down to the pipes and get
    across. Here is a flooded area with lots of aliens (including Bullsquids)! In
    this area is a power node that should be turned on so that Barney can go up the
    lift. Now Barney is able to access the Box of explosives! Collect the ammo and
    push the Box into the canal river, where it will destroy the turbines blocking
    the way. Move up and listen to the Army Soldiers' conversation. It looks like
    the Army isn't intending to rescue Black Mesa after all...
    
    ---------------------
    4.3 >Captive Freight<
    ---------------------
    Stupid Bush! Anyways, go up the ladder after demolishing the boxes in the room.
    There's some supplies behind the two Turrets in the back of the truck. Don't
    bother trying to open the gate behind the truck. However, the other gate is
    not, and it leads to the only way Barney can escape! The car on the road has a
    Revolver and some Armour. Continuing only leads to a squad of Soldiers that
    instantly lock the door! Next to the car is a locked gate, which can be busted
    with a thrust of the Crowbar. Go down the manhole.
    
    At the bottom, defeat the Headcrabs and keep walking through the tunnels.
    Sometimes, Barney will have to use a valve to advance through the airlocks. The
    same applies to the hallways Barney will have to tread. Keep an eye out for any
    hostile aliens. When Barney gets to a dead end with a vent, pile some boxes and
    climb up. Advance through the vents.
    
    Here's where the real fun begins. Get out of the vent and into the storage
    room. Go left and collect the supplies from the dead Guard. To the left shows a
    pair of Soldiers attacking someone. Kill the two of them and collect their
    Guns. Talk to the Scientist the baddies attacked. He says that he and his
    friend, Dr. Rosenburg, attempted to get out of the place, but got caught by the
    Army. His colleague is the only chance of getting out. Collect the Medkit and
    the 357 ammo in the locker and blast the Soldier that bursts in with the SPAS
    -12. In the hallway, to the right, is some debris blocking an elevator. Go up
    and collect the supplies at the end (Dr. Rosenburg will be needed to get to
    the other side of that door). Go to the stairwell.
    
    At the first door, go through and smash the boxes. At the end is the same squad
    Barney encountered at the beginning. Use the Revolver to take them down. Once
    they're killed, a Soldier will smash a window above a dump trailer. Climb up
    there and show him who's boss. Then go left and through the door.
    
    In the room, open the lock and collect the massive amount of supplies. This
    station contains a big squad of Marines, and two cars. The blue one contains a
    lot of Vortigaunts to distract the Soldiers if necessary. The red one contains
    a Scientist. He claims that he isn't Rosenburg though. After this, a door opens
    with some angry Soldiers. Blow them away and check the area for additional
    resources.
    
    The outdoor station has another nasty squad of Infantry and a Turret inside a
    box. Search the area for any noticables. The red boxcar has another Scientist.
    To get to him, smash the wooden objects that block the door. This one isn't
    Rosenburg either. A giant door will open in front of the turret, so use it to
    fire at the bad guys mercilessly! If any escape Barney's line of fire, go for
    them personally. Once all soldiers are down, go through the door towards a
    dangerous area. Jump into the Truck, and collect the Bazooka. Now that the
    Truck's top is blown off, fire explosives at the nearby Tank. Once it is
    destroyed, search the area for more Army men, and supplies. Go through the
    small door.
    
    There's a Turret to the right. Blow it off and go to the car that contains lots
    of boxes. Then shoot the explosives in order to blast the door. The next area
    has some hostile Soldiers. Once the whole platoon is killed, get to a control
    panel that will turn the Turntable and open the door. Get to the engine in
    front of the red boxcar and use it to back up. When it is at one of the docking
    areas, get into the boxcar to meet Rosenburg.
    
    Listen to his story. He says that he can manipulate the teleporation gadgets
    provided so that he, Barney, and his friends can get out. First, he'll give
    Barney a boost so that he can leap out of the boxcar and ambush the Marines
    that have locked the two in the boxcar. Throw some Grenades at them! Once the
    path is clear, Rosenburg will follow. Go through the remaining green door.
    
    Go up the stairs and search the corridor for some foes. Rosenburg will follow
    as soon as the foes are dead. Collect the supplies, and go to the staircase.
    There's a few more Soldiers to dispatch. Go down the stairs to the elevator
    accessed earlier. While going up, Rosenburg will complain that the Lambda team
    won't be able to help their escape due to their anticipation on Gordon Freeman.
    He's the protagonist of the main series.
    
    At the end of the lift, Rosenburg will open the door. He will then talk to one
    of his colleagues, Walter. The other one, Simmons, is at the main teleportation
    portal. He and Rosenburg will open the portal. Rosenburg states that in order
    for them to escape via teleportation, Barney will need to go to Xen and
    activate a parallel device so that they will be able to calculate the
    teleporation destination. When the portal opens up, jump in!
    
    -----------------
    4.4 >Focal Point<
    -----------------
    Barney appears in Xen, the least hospitable place ever! Blast the Houndeyes
    away and go up the arc, where more Houndeyes wait. In the cavern is another
    Houndeye and a spike. Quickly go through and break the debris blocking the tiny
    passage.
    
    Keep going through this maze non-stop. Once Barney is through, he will come
    across a pond with some Barnacles at the ceiling and a Headcrab. Kill them all
    and regenerate at the Healing Pool if needed. There's a secret down in the
    depths of this pond. Get out of the room to find an area with lots of
    platforms. Jump to each platform in order to get to the other side. At one
    point, some Vortigaunts will spawn. At the end is some more Houndeyes.
    
    There's another "Island" here with a healing pool. More aliens will spawn,
    knocking down a pole. Climb across it and go down. Keep jumping and swimming
    until Barney reaches the abandoned research camp. Nab all the supplies first,
    and then tamper with the equipment so that the signal will go back to Earth.
    Some aliens will spawn, so run into a cave where a Vortigaunt will get crushed
    by some rocks. Climb them and run through the corridors as fast as possible!
    
    At the end is a portal. Jump in! Barney returns to Earth with thanks from the
    Scientist. Now here's the bad news; the power reserves were just enough for
    Barney to go to Xen. Now he has to go down into the cellars and get another
    battery to replace this one in order for an escape. Rosenburg will escort
    Barney to an elevator leading to the lower areas.
    
    --------------------
    4.5 >Power Struggle<
    --------------------
    At the bottom, blast the Bullsquid behind the door and collect the supplies.
    Set some Satchel Charges at the door, trust me. Then go up the other elevator
    and see a Scientist and a Guard protecting the battery! They get ambushed by
    those damned monsters though, and the Guard gets heavily injured. Return back
    to where Barney blasted the Bullsquid to find the door getting breached! Once
    they get through, detonate the explosives to send out massive fireworks!
    
    Collect the supplies from both the gore and the walls. More soldiers await
    Barney, so dispatch them all. Go up the elevator and destroy the Turret. To the
    left is a bridge with a waterfall of Coliant. A Grenadier pops up and fires a
    Grenade at Barney! After dodging the explosive, shoot him down along with the
    pair of Marines across the bridge. A Shotgun Grunt is behind them in a small
    room. A Marine and a Commando are in the room to the right. Collect the
    supplies and ambush the Marine that's using the radio. The Grating leads to a
    vent that leads to some supplies, including some Snarks. Return back and go
    through the path leading to the next area.
    
    The TNT wire is broken, but that doesn't mean it can't be used! Collect the
    supplies here and grab a barrel. Attach it to the broken segment of the wire
    and activate the TNT! This will blow up the door. Attack the Vortigaunts that
    spawn here, and go up the ladder to find some Headcrabs. Collect the supplies
    and activate the Coolant pump. Then go down the elevator to find another
    Headcrab. At the bottom of the pool, arrange the barrels so that it lines
    across the bridge parts. Return back, turning the cooliant pumps back.
    
    At the other end is some Houndeyes. If Barney touches the pool of Coolant,
    he'll be ripped to shreds! Run across the bridge of barrels and fend off the
    aliens. Move through the corridors, blasting the Aliens, and notice the two
    Soldiers shooting wildly at some Vortigaunts. At the top is a Vortiguant
    Soldier. Blow it away and move through the door, dodging the Headcrabs as
    Barney advances up the stairs. Eventually, he'll come across the generator
    controls. Kill the Bullsquid and turn both turbines on. Return back to the area
    where Barney last fought the Marines and go to where the Grenadier had ambushed
    Barney. Use the switch to raise the bridge to access the other side. Annihilate
    the Vortigaunts and talk to the injured Guard. This is the battery needed to
    get out of here! He moves out of the way and dies. Put the battery into the
    charging station and then transfer it to Rosenburg. Return back to the main
    Lab.
    
    ---------------------
    4.6 >A Leap Of Faith<
    ---------------------
    Rosenburg congratulates Barney and then leads him back to the teleporter. This
    time, Barney will be in the control room. First, activate the main power
    switch. In the process, the coolant pipes will bust! Go to the switch at the
    catwalk and turn the wheel. Two Houndeyes will spawn, so take them down!
    Resume turning the wheel until the meter remains at the green. When Rosenburg
    tells Barney to press the Damping Locks system, do it! Walter goes through
    first, then Simmons, and then Rosenburg himself. He sets the equipment to
    automatically restart for Barney to go through. In the process, Soldiers have
    found the site and are going to assault this lab! When the door nearby
    collapses, kill the two men, and resume observing the equipment. Activate the
    Damping Locks and run through! Dodge the Soldiers' gunfire and make it to the
    other side!
    
    Barney appears at the exit of Black Mesa. Rosenburg is glad to see Barney to
    make it, but he seems to appear glowing green. Barney suddenly teleports to
    another set of Xen platforms, and then to a familiar enviroment, observing two
    Soldiers carrying away an unconscious Gordon Freeman away. He then teleports
    back to the exit, and Rosenburg is relieved that Barney didn't get into a
    permanent teleportaion paradox (A temporal harmonic refulx to be exact).
    Anyhow, the four drive off to a happy ending!

    5.2 >FAQ<
    ---------
    Here's the usual Frequently Asked Questions section!
    
    Q: How does Barney get the M16?
    A: The High Definition Pack MUST be installed to get the M16. Note that the M16
    will replace the MP5.
    
    Q: The game automatically quits whenever the game loads between two different
    areas!
    A: As a temporary cure, arm the crowbar and swing it until the loading is
    finished. I don't know how to cure the problem permanently though.
    
    Q: Cheats don't work!
    A: BEFORE loading a game or starting a new one, open the console and then enter
    "sv_cheats 1". If this is done AFTER starting a game, re-load the game. "Give"
    cheats will only work if Barney goes through another loading screen.
