Does Half-Life 2 have a timedemo benchmark?

Archived from groups: alt.games.half-life2,alt.games.halflife,alt.games.half-life (More info?)

If so, then what's the command? I was not able to find the command/steps.
I need to stress the game on this machine.

Thank you in advance. :)

    I'm not sure of a timedemo (there probably is one however, google if you
    need it). But there is a "Stress Test" option in CS:S that's there
    specifically to do what you want to do. Load up CS:S and click the
    "Stress Test" option in the main manu. The game will do it's thing and
    report an average FPS.

    Yeah, I was looking on Google but didn't find one. Stress Test for CS:S.
    I will check it out. I need something to see why my HL2 crashes...

    Nice. Is there a way to run this in a loop?

    Whoa! Hang on there. I though you were just benchmarking the thing.

    If the game is crashing it might be better to tell us what's going on.

    GFree, look for my other newsgroup thread titled "hl2.exe Application
    Error -- "0x241f94b7" referenced memory at "0x0107f5c0". The memory
    could not be "read""

    Basically, I want to run the game without playing. :)

    Yeah, and isn't there text to say (or imply) that stats from uploaded
    results will be published at some point in the future? I've not seen any
    yet, and surely they have enough of a database by now.
