ok now i have got a non steam HL-2, Cs:S, DOD:S, DM, Lost coast and Metastatis 2 now is there a way of getting a patch for HL 2 and getting it high enough to play garry's mod 9.0.4
nope, you NEED steam for garry's mod
You need steam for most Valve games these days...lol
no you can download the old versions of garry's mod
There's no non Steam Half-Life 2, are you joking, you can't launch hl2 without steam,unless you are playing illegal, you are launching the game with <"(drive):\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\(username)\half-life 2\hl2.exe" -steam -game hl2> to avoid steam, That is playing without steam but thats is illegal!!, hl2 require steam, And Gmod 9 can only be launched with steam! If u buy it in stores it has Steam included in the cd, If you buy it online, you have steam. I bet you got the game illegally.
If you don't believe read THIS Half-Life 2 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia It says there that "All Half-Life 2 players are required to have Steam installed and a valid account in order to play" Unless you launched the game that way,
No talk about any "non-steam" please. Get Steam, IMO. Please don't let me see this again.
