I installed yesterday and wow! Its bringing back memories I tell you but I am luckily playing it on a PC maybe 50x greater then what I had in 1998 lol.
I don't think I ever completed HL1 but this time I will I'm loving it. If you haven't downloaded it already do so now its bloody awesome for free!
I find myself really loving the grain effect and the luminescent toxic waste...
I really can't believe that this is a free game. It's beautiful! This is what I was expecting from Half-Life: Source when it came out.

There is also a Black Mesa jump fix at GameCopyWorld
Is anyone else annoyed by crouch-jumping? I can't pull it off properly 75% of the time. Crouch-jumping in Half-Life 2 was much easier.
Also, I had a head-scratching moment when I encountered a Houndeye early in the game. Every time I reached the area, the Houndeye would uses its sonic attack to make a crate explode which in turn made the floor collapse. My first thought was to try to kill it before it could emit a sonic pulse but that proved futile after a couple of tries. I took a break out of frustration and boredom. The solution came to me as I stared at the loading bar: sprinting. The first couple of tries resulted in being pushed off the floor by the explosion. I don't know if it was luck or skill but I managed to cross the area before the floor collapsed underneath me.
Now that I thought of it, I'd say it's the most difficult gaming experience I've had since my days of playing Donkey Kong 64 as a child.
