    same torrent i'm using... only now the download has dropped like a rock. seems the one server with the high download rate decided to go away. went from 1MB/sec to 50KB/sec

    edit: after 20min or so that server/user came back online... its a comcast server it seems... I guess they had to take it down or it got overwhelmed lol

    Finished downloading... I'll start seeding after it installs.

    Edit: Seeding

    EEsh... I had to do a double take when I read this.. They didn't release the newly approved greenlight game, for steam release? That's pretty contradictory and just good ole fashioned tupid.... :laugh:

    It probably takes a while to go through negotiations with Steam after being Greenlit. They have to send in a build of the game and surely it has to be tested by Steam and modified to work/be distributed properly on the CDN.

    Yes, you can buy Half-Life: Source on Steam.

    This game, however, is free. All you need is the Source SDK Base 2007 from the Tools section of your game library. The game itself is NOT available on Steam at the moment, but the dev officially released it today via torrent and direct download mirrors.

    Yes...but don't bother with HL:Source as it's barely better than the original which is very dated. That's why everyone is so amped about this instead. The fact it's free is just an awesome bonus.

    True, BUT, Black Mesa: Source only goes up to Chapter 13 of the original game, so you miss out on all the space stuff. And, I recommended the Source version because there isn't much point in buying the outdated GoldSrc version. CS 1.6 is the exception, though.

    Just played it for half hour or so. Extremely impressed. Graphics are spot on and there's a few easter eggs you have to look out for.

    It's been "centuries" since I played HL. I thought they had it done up to Lamda Core and that they were working on Xen onwards...:(

    I have had it loaded and ready to roll for a couple hours now but my mates over at SimJunkies are having a Goodwood SJ meet up and I am "hanging" with them on a Video Stream and Teamspeak and can pull myself away to fire it up :banghead:

    Edit: NM Brain Fart your saying it IS more than Half :banghead:

    The game ran like sh*t, including crashes due to the dodgy hardware in the mobo (they were all like this). I had that system for quite a while unfortunately. When I eventually upgraded to an AMD Athlon XP 2500+ (Barton core) and ATI 9800 Pro graphics card, the game flew.

    I still have a SS of counterstrike beta back in 1999 :) I used a special tool that took off alot of the GFX settings and tweak it to the best possible. Its like 800x600 and I was barely getting 60FPS sometimes with most GFX off.
