If you want to have just the graphics enhancements, copy the 'materials' folder in the Cinematic Mod to C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\<your username>\Half-Life 2\hl2. To use the entire Cinematic Mod, you must copy and paste every file and folder in folder '1. Cinematic Mod' (or something like that) to C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\SourceMods. You can get it so that you just run normal Half-Life 2 with the Cinematic Mod, without having to click it in Steam. However, seeing as I have not done this myself, I cannot help you there. Just to warn you, loading times are astronomical and it will slow down unless you have a fast computer.

It should appear on your usual Steam games list as 'Fakefactory's Cinematic Mod'. Make sure it is in that exact directory.

The path everything should be in is in my first post. You need to run the games off your machine to use mods (I think).
