Different FOV, waving during the walk, IIRC these were mentioned as reason in some research papers.

So what do you need to get BM running? HL1? HL1:Source? HL2? Texture packs for HL1?

You need a 2007 Source SDK, which will be downloaded and installed (if you don't already have it) automatically if you have Steam. That's the only "extra" thing the installer asked me to install.

Make sure you turn off vertical/horizontal bobbing (there are 2 options for it, in game settings, one is a "checkbox" option and the other one is a slider you have to slide to 0) for your character. B.t.w, for some reason the game doesn't seem to "memorize" the setting for horizontal bobbing (at least for me)...

B.t.w, for those who are playing it - be careful and do not rely on the game's "auto save" and instead manually "save" your progress often! Today for some reason the game crashed right when it was in the process of "auto-saving", so I couldn't load the "auto-save" anymore and since I haven't used regular "save" function for several hours - I've lost all that progress...
