hi, ive heard that you have to activate half life 2 online before you can play it, is there a way to do this by phone as i dont have the web at home? :0wned:
Nope, just online.
Wait for a Nocd crack to come out, they will usually have coded in the crack that will not require u to be online to first play the game. Try www.megagames.com and go to "trainers" to look for one under H. so far theres none. I too do not have internet connection at home so i couldn't play it, but what i did is grabbed my second Hdrive out of my home computer brought it here into work and hooked it up to my work computer, (that has internet) then i installed HL2. registered etc., took drive out and went home install drive bac into my computer and magic! i can now play the game with out an internet connection. :) What a hassle but we hav no choice for those that hav no internet at home.:deal: IF AT FIRST YOU DONT SUCCEED, THEN BOMB DISPOSAL PROBABLY ISN"T FOR YOU.
