All you need installed via steam is the Source 2007 SDK.

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.

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 agree the whole Half Life experience got me started into computer gaming. Taking my time playing and enjoying it, not trying to see how fast I can get through.

That is a beautiful shot. You can really see the luminescent effect.

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.

copy this into the autexeccfg file in the config folder for the mod:

//crouch-jump script makes life easier, thanks to mgr.inz.player

bind "space" "+crouchjump"
alias +crouchjump "+jump; wait 5; duckON"
alias -crouchjump "wait 5; duckOFF; -jump"
