Ok I start HL2 up and it gets to where the Menu is loading(in the bottom right corner it says loading)and my mouse is there, I can move it around but thats where it freezes. Like it stopped loading the main menu :mad:. PLEASE HELP!!!
Athlon XP 2700+ 1gb RAM 9600XT 256mb
Apok doesnt have thyat problem....
try updating drivers, or rollback.
I'll try that. Does HL2 have to be 100% ready to play properly? In the properties of HL2 in Steam it says "Update Needed", the % is going up, it's around 55% now. Is that why I'm having this problem? Does it have to be at 100%?
Plz reply soon.
Ah ha! I fixed it! Simple really, I just waited till HL2 updated it's self! :D
meh, i got reatil i dont think i had to wait for that...
well how do you like it? oh wait, this is one of you 3 copies. *rolls eyes*
Under "Play Games" right click on HL2 and click "Properties", it will bring up a window. Under "Status", what does it say? "Update Needed" or "Ready to Play"? If it says "Update Needed", look under "Amount Acquired", if it's under 100% thats most likely why it isn't getting to the main menu. Just wait till it reaches 100% and that should do it :D.
Apok, I have this same problem. However, mine won't update itself. Under status it says that it requires and update and it's only 64%. For automatic updates, it says "Always keep this game up to date". The problem is, I can't seem to get my game to update itself. If I click Launch game, then it just launches the game and just freezes again at the start menu. How did you get it to update itself.
its at 64%. it goes up slowly but surely. reffering to whoever is above me.
