Since the old AVP-1999 Thread hasn't been posted in for forever I figured it was time to start fresh.

I have to say I love the Hadley's Hope Skirmish Map it's utterly fantastic.

It's not just a fantastic AvP game, it's a fantastic video game in general. One of the best ever made, in my opinion.

Edit: Speaking of skirmish, I made a proof of concept for a sort of alien version of skirmish with respawning marines instead of aliens:

Woah, that looks awesome!

I can just imagine how awesome it would be to play the Alien In Hadley's Hope.

Having an Alien Skirmish mode would make Classic 2000 complete.

Hm, yes. I didn't mean to redirect the point of this thread. It should probably remain a discussion of our history/appreciation/general discussion of this game. I might make a thread about skirmish maps to be played as the alien once I have something to show. It's a relatively easy yet time-consuming venture.

Damn fine game. Best in terms of raw gameplay for sure. I just finished it a few days ago after starting going through all my A/P games again. This game may not have the immersive setting and narrative of the more popular sequel, but it nails the gameplay much better. Non-terrible Predators weapons (arguably OP),stealthier Aliens, and no insanely OP human weapons (spider mines anyone?) I also prefer the more realistic graphics instead of the more cartoony ones of the sequel. A damn shame this game doesn't get much love. If we only got an AVP game that fused Classic's gameplay with a complex story like AVP 2 it'd be perfect.

Just recently back into this game. Quiet possibly my all time favourite game.

One thing i really dislike about the 2000 classic version on steam is that it is the basically the Gold Edition.

The thing i hate most is the new video messages that the Rebellion staff recorded for the gold edition. It almost ruins the game for me. I also reallly don’t like the into music and background.  Petty i know.

So what i have just done is put my original 1999 disc copy into my laptop, found the original files for the things I don’t like in the gold and then replaced the newer ones with the originals.

Works a treat.

Also put the uncut predator into in. 

I’m still, almost 20 years on, having such a great Time with this game.

This is probably the best and most honest insight into the development of the game: https://web.archive.org/web/19991104120948/http://www.foxinteractive.com:80/avp/notes.html

This is relevant. A bit of history from Rebellion on how AVP came about.
Video: How an 11th-hour decision made Aliens versus Predator a classic
The titles of that article and the video are misleading (the decision to make the same levels playable by different species was neither a last-minute decision nor was it what made AvP a classic, just look at AvP 2010) and while there are interesting tidbits in there, it's not exactly the most illuminating interview.
