0) Get Xash3D binaries: you can use [testing](https://github.com/FWGS/xash3d-fwgs/releases/tag/continuous) build or you can compile engine from source code.
Choose proper build package depending on which platform you're using.
1) Copy engine binaries to some directory.
2) Copy `valve` directory from [Half-Life](https://store.steampowered.com/app/70/HalfLife/) to mentioned above directory with engine binaries.

Also if you're using Windows: you should copy `vgui.dll` library from Half-Life directory to Xash3D directory.
But instead, you can compile [hlsdk-xash3d](https://github.com/FWGS/hlsdk-xash3d) yourself instead of using official Valve game binaries, but you still needed to copy `valve` directory because all resources like sounds/models/maps located in there.
As alternative, you can compile [hlsdk-xash3d](https://github.com/FWGS/hlsdk-xash3d) instead of using official Valve game binaries, but you still needed to copy `valve` directory as all game resources located in there.
3) Download [extras.pak](https://github.com/FWGS/xash-extras/releases/tag/v0.19.2) and place it to `valve` directory.
4) Run `xash3d.exe`/`xash3d.sh`/`xash3d` depending on which platform you're using.
