This is the official resource kit for the Black Mesa visual style. Do what you want with it, my only request is that if you use these files in any other VS, skin, or website, you give me credit. No prior permission is required.
So if you feel so inclined as to make a wonderful modification to the Black Mesa VS, feel free to use these as you see fit, and release it at will!
All bugs that were reported in the original have been fixed, and many aesthetic tweaks or changes to the overall design have been implemented. Both a normal, and compact version is included, for those wondering but too lazy to download and try it out first. I'd like to thank KoL for his help fixing many of the bugs, as well as curran for giving me feedback along the way. Enjoy the new release, bitches.
Note: The resource files for version 2 were lost near it's completion, so there won't be a VSRK for v2. However, the VSRK for v1 still exists and since most of the design stayed the same it should still prove useful for anyone hoping to make a mod for v2.

1. the font that is used for screenshot is swiss 721 font. However, it isn’t free to use. Thus, I won’t take any requests of using the font.
2. This is something that I was worried about When I was releasing Fantastic vs.
I have told you before but I am the one who has the total right of this version.
I had the idea of this versiong and i used the base as milk3.1, so i had the permission of maker of milk3.1.
The problem was that i wasn’t thinking of releasing this version; thus, i was just using it by myself without
However, someone called Ultraman saw my screenshot and i accepted a request that permitting port Mac osx theme.
Then, Ultraman released the theme that he used based on my fantastic version themed on the Mac osx and more Non-Korean
people started to see this fantastic theme. In addition, Ultraman put my blog address and DA gallery address
as the original right. And Many people requested to release windows visual style and I worked hard cuz I am not good with
English and i earned the permission of the basetheme and this one was released.
I think though Ultraman displayed that I am the one with the right and the maker, many people wouldn’t know.
