Hi, I'm a first timer. I had been playing Team Fotress 1.5 for a week or so... first time, by the way, that I had ever played on line before, and I was digging it bigtime. I noticed that there aren't that many TF game servers especially compared to Counter-Strike. Knowing that is part of Half-Life, I down loaded the 1.5 version of CS. But, when I try to play CS, there is nothing on the server list at all. To boot, the same thing happens with TF now! So now I'm dead in the water and can't play either game online. :eek: :confused: I should also mention that the version of Half-Life I'm using is 184.108.40.206, which I believe is the most current, but when I try to start either TF or CS it tells me it is an outdated version, then asks me if I want to search the internet for the new version. I say yes, the game closes down, and a diialog box opens, I click next, and it gives the message, "Version Check Failed. Your version (220.127.116.11) is out of date but there are no updates to update Half-Life to the current version" Well, that makes no sense at all... When I click on "Cancel" on the first message, the server list opens up as if it's trying to work, but no servers are on the list. Formerly, when I was going through TF there were hundreds but that was before I updated CS. I read somewwhere that you need to activate the two games within Half-Life, which I think I did, but they still won't run. Can anyone help, I feel like I found a new thing (for me) and now it's taken away. Thanks for any help you can give me! crumbar
... all i can say my fellow Steam victim! :(
Are you by any chance playing on WON servers if so they have gone for good, you will have to install Steam, I think this is the reason all the servers dissapeared, go to this link and read all about TCF and CS and Steam, and I hope to god you've got broadband.
Yeah, I think it was Won... and I remember reading some chat about it going away. Okay, I'll try to figure out how to get it working with Steam. Thanks for the links, too. crumbar:cya:
If all else fails I say SCREW STEAM unrealiable piece of junk it's always down anyways. :(
the guy(s) who made steam made a big mistake... Were all victim....I always playd Counter Strike 1.5... But now with steam...It says that my Cd key is already in use... .......i hate steam.........
