I just got home from a 13hour day at work. Turn my comp on and attempt to open hl2. Steam updates. No biggy. Attempt to launch hl2..it says it's preparing to open it, CD starts to spin, then nothing. Same thing happens for CS:S. It worked fine before the update, and couple of my friends are having the same problem with the latest steam patch. Anyone have any info on this? Chimpy
Yeah. I'm having the exact same problem. I see in the task manager that it opens, but that it just closes immediately afterward. I downloaded hl2 off steam, so it's not a cd problem, and I tried both playing online and offline so I know it's not that. And steam forums are down so... GRRR:mad:
Yea, i just hope they fix it by tomorrow and that i dont have to do much to fix it. Dont want to go to work on my day off just to fix this problem. Thank you for the reply.
Hey, I just bought the game and am having the exact same thing. I was on the verge of uninstalling it and taking it back, but if you guys are having the same problem then maybe Ill hold off and see if they fix it.
No games that work with the source engine are working for me, valve :moon: I hope the deathmatch is any good, since the AI has the IQ of a headcrab.
Seems that people who bought the game through steam can play, but people who bought it on disc can't.
no its the other way around my friend.
Ronin-Predatorno its the other way around my friend.
No its not I bought the discs and I cant play.
