Damnit. I didn't have the minimum ram requirements, so whenever, for some odd reason, when I was pointing towards the sea - there was slowdown... yet generally looking towards the province or wherever else and it ran like a glove :confused: Weird eh? Oh and how did everyone block the machine? was it the iron...thing or anything more creative?

heh The graphics look great! Half-Life 2 Lost Coast looks good. I bet my Radeon X850 will run it smoothly...

It looked, ...different lol. There was just something about it. They made the graphics look so much better that it doesn't even look like the normal HL2. The water looked different, it's reflections were a lot better. Everything was more detailed. But, I didn't really recognize the HDR. Was that like, part of the light shining through the window? What was the HDR supposed to be?

Thats because they are reccomended requirememts, for running the game smoothly with everything on high.

I used a bucket that was to the left of the machine.

LMAO... the HDR is just what you described, better lighting effects more realistic

I was playing the demo (and spent a few hours tweaking my computer to make it run smoothly... I had to overclock the hell out of my 6800GT), and I got locked in a church and didn't know where to go from there. Is that the end of the demo, or am I just alot worse at this game than I thought?

Nooo, you just have to be particularly aware. The mechanism for the gun should be in there. It's the big chunk of Combine technology at the far-right side of the church as you walk in. There are two panels which cover the mechanism (they have a label across them, as I recall). Pull them both off to reveal the mechanism, and then shove something into it (the panels you just pulled off will do the trick). When you've done that, the gun should get jammed and break. Watch out, though -- some poisonous head humpers will pop out of one of the shells and go for you. Which puts an end to any doubt of the Combine using poisonous headcrabs in their shells at least. After that, the Combine will show you the way...

Indeed they will, I had a lot of fun and ran it well considering what a crappy system I have. I blocked the machine with an ammo box lol.

Well, after a few days of being to busy to play, I overclocked my video card even more (its now at 439/1180, up from the stock 350/1000) and I'm ready to play. Unforunately, I was ticked off and I wasted all of my ammo before I saved and quit.... looks like I'll be starting over. Thanks.
