    For the umpteenth time, that kind of requests does not deserve to open a thread. It belongs here https://gbatemp.net/threads/post-homebrew-ideas-suggestion-requests-here.370320/
    And moreover, nobody's going to do it anytime soon, I don't know if you know the amount of work that would require, as we do not have the sources for this game.

    I don't see why it would be impossible, the psp had an engine that ran HL1.

    I think you did not understand what I said. I said that the fact that we do not have the source would make the port much more difficult.
    That DOES NOT imply that it is impossible, nor that given the source code we could port any game on the 3DS.

    No, I read what you said just fine. I don't think the source is necessarily the problem so much as it is the work involved.

    I think you took my statement as hostile, which sir is not the case. Not everyone on the internet is looking for a fight...

    Well, the amount of work is much larger if you don't have the original source code to work with. You'd have to figure out by yourself a ton of things to make a decent clone that you wouldn't have to if you had the source code.

    I did not. I'm sorry if I sounded rude, I have some trouble with figuring out a correct way to speak in a language that is not my mother tongue... Sorry ^o^

    Looks like the source code may be floating around after all.

    Kurok was a modified quake engine.. But, I know what you mean. If we could port the source engine to the 3ds, that'd be a great start.

    :edit: I see your edit. Oo

    This quake engine has files to run HL1 on the internet somewhere. It looks like it runs off dosbox.. but im probably wrong

    Isn't it just a Quake mod that is inspired by HL?

    I'm not sure, I played the first 5min. on my Vita and it was buggy. People gave up on it quite quick I believe.
