I installed Half Life: Source from Steam and it worked brilliantly, only problem I noticed was it didn't show the intro Steam Logo, played the sound, but no video. Didn't care, the game ran. However, the next time I went to play it, it didn't work, it would play the logo sound (No vid) like before, but then it locked up. It does that every time now. I even uninstalled it with Steam and tried reinstalling it. Has anyone had this issue? Anyone figured out how to work around it?
Heh, I got it. Apparently changing the resolution to 1680x1050 and turning everything up works in game, but when it tries to load these from the saved preferences something goes wrong. It's kind of a pain, but adding -autoconfig to the "Set Launch Options" resets it to the default resolution and the game loads. (Set Launch Options is found under Properties in the contextual menu for the game inside Steam) After it has loaded you can change it back to whatever resolution (if its not just 1680x1050 that is the problem) and preferences that you had before. You'll have to do this every time you load the game but it works.
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
