Some of you might have already seen this, but it is possible to play the HL2 single-player maps online with other friends. Now, keep in mind that this is still VERY "betafied" (NEW WORD!). Also, Valve never got around to making a model texture for Gordon, so he is just a grey person. Anyways, here is how to do it.... [color=Black] [/color] [color=silver][color=Black] * Step 1 o Navigate to the directory containing Steam.exe * Step 2 o Then goto SteamApps/YourUserNameXXX/half-life 2/cfg * Step 3 o Create a new text file and name it "servermode.cfg" * Step 4 o In the file and the following net_start sv_lan 0 deathmatch 1 maxplayers (whatever you want) * Step 5 o Save the file and load up Half-life 2 * Step 6 o Open the console and type "exec servermode.cfg" * Step 7 o Now in the console type "map " * Step 8 o When the map finishes loading, open your console and type "restart" So someone needs to start a server!!!

Hopefully some will mod this and make him an awesome skin
How do you find a server if there is one? What server browser do you use?
There is no server browser. You have to have the IP address of the server. Hey, I am going to make one now. I will put a 4 person limit. BRB with the IP address...
Right okay, i'm waiting. Shall i use the counter strike source web browser to find it?
No, you will have to just start HL2 and type in "connect (IP ADDRESS)" Try this address... 127.0.0.1:27015
Ok will do...brb
Edit: erm, where do i type it exactly, i can't bring a console down..
Edit again: okay i'm in but i'm stuck as you can see!
Forgot to tell you that you have to type in "noclip" at the start to get unstuck....
Oh i see thanks
Well, there you have it. LOL The host needs to activate sv_cheats 1 in order for everyone to use noclip and get weapons. Also, as you saw, some of the maps dead end. It is still fun if you play on some of those big levels like prison.
