PreRelease announcement on PlanetPhillip

The StriderMountain team announces a Pre-Release: The first 5 of 15 total levels.
Why the decision to do a pre-release of the first 5 levels instead of waiting to release the entire 15 level mod?
The simple answer: We want to give you something to play NOW while we optimize the other 10 levels.
The technical answer: The reason for the PreRelease is b/c we had too many issues with the EP2 codes and decided to go back to HL2 codes. This decision, although the right one, has significantly delayed a full release. Since maps 1-5 are done now, we decided to PreRelease them to the community. You will only need HL2 to play StriderMountain.
