I get a black screen for the first scene of both HL2 and Episode 1. I get a black screen and I don't see the part where the Vort's save Freeman or nothing, I can hear it but not see it. Is there a way to fix this or see the scene outside of the game, is it inside one of the gcf files? Help me please.

Just wait and see if the screen goes normal.
It doesn't, i've tried that, waiting doesn't help.

it might be your resolution.. switch it lower.. it night work then
Lower? My res is 800x600, lower will warp the screen with my vid card, or at least it does on most other games. I'll try it though

Then you might think it's a problem with your video card? What type is it? And try to play with your video options as well. Also, try to upgrade your video drivers, if already done so. Try to install older versions.

Your video card must be,....... you know, not compatible with hl2, what is your default settings in video? is it high or is it low, does you game slows?
