    Where on Steam is it even available? I'm downloading from a mirror for what looks like a standalone .zip atm.
  5. Hi :)

    Its NOT available on Steam , although it will go into your Steam list in Library once installed...

    Get it from a link on www.blackmesasource.com/

    Its a 3.1 gb zip....

    I am about half way through the game at the moment :)

    Good graphics to go with a great game...

    All the best Brett :)
  6. Yes that's what I meant. It's a 3 GB file to download, but it's still a steam game when you install it... Sorry if I caused confusion :P.

    My connection may be slow but it is cheap and unlimited.
  12. Mine is unlimited as well, so how much do you pay? :D I pay 13 euros a month!
  13. Mine costs me a tenner a month and includes the phone line which also has unlimited local calls.
  14. [quotemsg=I hate steam :D
    I hope the god of gaming smites ye heathen
  15. Why? Do you enjoy advertisements popping up everytime you alt tab? Do you like your games taking 30 secs longer to launch because steam has to update itself?

    Thanks. :sol:
  17. Just started playing it this afternoon. Haven't played HL1 since back when HL2 was new. I enjoyed HL2 so much back then, that I downloaded the old HL and played it about half way through. Then got tired of the old looking graphics and gave up, I guess. Black Mesa appears to be true to the original and muuuuch better graphically. Now maybe I'll be able to finish it... if I can get past some of the tougher puzzles.
  18. Hi :)

    Just got to the surface ...lol...

    All the best Brett :)

    I played it in dark room. I might add that all those years ago I either didn't understand the story at all, or I had nerves of steel. The game is god damn scary, especially when you go through dark pipes, and you clear zombies on the other side... And I don't even want to consider how Gordon feels!

    It's amazing how games have changed since the 1990's. I miss the 'old school' shooters like HL. I guess today's generation prefers playing Tag with guns.

    I never finished the original HL. I got stuck on the dexterity-required puzzle where Gordon has to jump from one spinning centrifuge to the next to get past the section. At least I think that was what was going on. My memory has faded a bit since I played it years ago.
