What Operating System do you use?? Half-Life was designed for Windows98, and is not very compatible with WindowsXP.

What Video card are you using? HL1 uses nVidia TNTs and TNT2s, as well as Voodoo2s.

What processor?

What HD format? Fat32? or NTFS? NTFS is more secure, but Half-Life 1 was designed for Fat32.

People who know what they're doing have gotten it to run on a...

AMD 64 WindowsXP on an NTFS drive. with a Geforce 6600GT.

Half-Life 1 requires 32mb you got that much right? :p :rolleyes:

Need some more info to fix the problem.

LOL, WinMe doesn't support NTFS. I have run Half-Life on Me, Thats not the problem.

Your system meets the ideal requirements Specs, except it has a weak TNT2. 3DFX rules! A Geforce 256 is compatible, as well as a Geforce 4 MX440.

Hmm, try an older version of the TNT2 drivers, or a Half-Life patch?

Hmmm, it had to do with your configuration... You formatted whatever would allow it to work...

Ok, Have you been online without an Anit-Virus program? Or a Firewall?

Vivendi Universal, Valve's Half-Life GOTY Updates. ^ All I could find...

[quote=http://www.voodoofiles.net/vb/archive/index.php/t-1872.html]...the newer the drivers the less support for the older cards. i find dat i get higher benchmarks while using older drivers....

...detonator 6.50 worked good, but detonator 3.xx were aversome....

Way back when, I used to run Half Life against a TNT 1 16MB under Windows ME. BTW Monster user is correct about NTFS. It's not supported for ME. I was using the Detonator 28.32, and later the 30.82 drivers. Both worked flawlessly.

So will ^those work?

Well, from someone who has used the older drivers. The ones optimized for Half-Life, they worked flawlessly.
