I just started the game and am stuck in the caverns..all I got is a crowbar and 'nades, and the G gun, which wont fire...just goes click click. and glows. also, where is the manual? I paid $50 for this game and no manual. dont know how to use G gun and others. getting pissed already, after over 1 hour to install with Steam.
Dude. First, if u just bought orange box, play Half Life 2, and Episode 2 before u start playing Episode 2 (Duh..) But if you don't, Grav gun works: Mouse1: Fires PROPS in front of u away from the punt Mouse2: Pick up PROP Mouse1 while holding PROP: Fire PROP Basically, Grav Gun only works on PROPS
You use the Gravity Gun to pick up and throw items. Left Mouse can fire some objects into the air and the right mouse bottum picks stuff up, then you can launch it with left mouse bottum. If you know that, then whats the problem?

be sure to play half life 2 before the episodes.. it ruins the story if you play it in the wrong order
it ruins the way they want u to learn each weapon and the puzzles too :D

Valve intended you to learn various gameplay concepts through actual gameplay, rather than reading a manual firsthand. You'll notice as you play through the Half-Life 2 saga that they 'train' you in various concepts in a peaceful environment before pitting you against them in 'life fire' exercises. Learning how to use the gravity gun was covered in detail in Half-Life 2 itself, so you should really play that one first.
Additionally, if you have any interest at all in the storyline, I'd recommend that you play Half-Life 1 and its expansion packs before you begin on Half-Life 2. I know number two is the new game with the flashy graphics and you're probably not interested in a game made in 1998, but, it's worth it (plus, HL2's graphics look a lot better than they actually are if you play it immediately after HL1).
are you kidding nanobot? i take it that u said that for comedic effect :P
I have played ALL the HL games..including HL1, HL2 E1, and now HL2E2. now I'm stuck again...I drove the car,got to the red roof barn and we went in...jumped down under the floor boards and came out in a big room with a machine and dead Advisor. Alyx pulled him away from the machine and pushed some buttons to start it up... big tube popped up with ball bouncing around in it..now im stuck there. I dont know what to do..been pushing pulling everything around there.
1) that advisor was still in incubation, its not dead
2) a ball popped out? erm.... you kinda lost me there...
