Yes, cheating is no good and it kills the fun of the game and i'm a newb bla bla bla... but now that i have told that myself i wondered if anybody in here could help me with the problem. I just downloaded (legally paid it with my card) the game today and started to mess around with it, but nomatter what i do it doesn't sem to work. The first thing i tried was to download a trainer and get it to operate with the system, the functions of it also seem to work fine, but when the game wants to do a leveltransfer it starts the optional freeze, goes to black, and then flashes back to the menu. I am sure that it was not one of the intentional functions for that trainer, and it irratates me a lot since you then will have to know every loadingpoint in the game, does anyone know how to get that problem fixed? i tried running both programmes as adminstrator (i use vista), but it didn't help at all, i am at a loss for other things to try. Also, when i have edited the .cfg-files so that my consolekey matches a key i can use, the game will not load any levels at all. Does half-life 2 have an inbuilt punkbuster-like function? and if it has, how do you turn it off? any help appreciated.

If I were you, I wouldn't use 'trainers' at all, it could be a virus or something. It's really easy to 'cheat' yourself, first, you need to turn on the console, by going to options, keyboard, advanced. Then, while in game, press ~ and enter sv_cheats 1. You can do things like impulse 101, to give you all the weapons. Or noclip, for, well, noclip. And if you want to change the map, type map , for an entire list of maps, type maps *.

Here is the entire list of commands, maybe you can find some fun stuff in it. Console Command List - Valve Developer Community

hello, thanks for the information:) but as i allready said above, my keyfunctions on my new keyboard isn't normal, so i have to edit the config.cfg to open, but after i have editted the config cfg my won't run. Man did i explain myself badly yesterday, hope it doesn't get even worse. But can anyone tell me how i can edit the config.cfg and still have the game capable of running?

I have tried reinstalling. But thanks anyway. Is there anything build into steam so you would have to go offline?

I still don't understand why my game crashes after having fiddled around with the config.cfg, the only thing i did in it was changing a keybinding

Tell us the specs of your computer, how much ram, your vid card, etc. I wonder if it's possible that it might be a compatibility problem between Vista and HL. Hope you get it to work.

my computer is a 2.5 dualcore amd athlon 64, has 3.0 gb ram, the graphicscard is an nvidia 8500, and has vista 32-bit, maybe that is what causes the problem, but i have also tried running it as adminstrator, and still the same. But i read something about valve cheating something to prevent you from cheating, but doesn't affect singeplayer does it?

It shouldn't affect singleplayer at all, but who knows. Have you run the game without inputing cheats or messing with your config.cfg? Try that and see if it still crashes.

The game runs perfectly normal when i don't try to cheat or edit the config.cfg. I am sorry for not having given proper information, my apologies. Could anyone please post a description of how they do it when they get the cheats to work? and does anyone know what to do when the buttons on your keyboard aren't the normal ones? because my button for the console even though running without having editted anyhing isn't the one under the escape buton, its this one ---> | ` |, that is my consolebutton, and i can't open it even though i press shift
