Half-Life 2 DVD *Retail* (c) Valve/Sierra
Release Date : 11-30-2004 Protection : SecuROM/Steam
File Count : DVD=54x50mb Game Genre : Shooters
From the group that brought Counter-Strike: Condition Zero to your pc,
Vengeance is proud to present Half-Life 2.
By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original, and
adding startling new realism and responsiveness, Half-Life 2 opens the
door to a world where the player's presence affects everything around him,
from the physical environment to the behaviors -- even the emotions -- of
both friends and enemies.
The player again picks up the crowbar of research scientist Gordon
Freeman, who finds himself on an alien-infested Earth being picked to the
bone, its resources depleted, its populace dwindling. Freeman is thrust
into the unenviable role of rescuing the world from the wrong he unleashed
back at Black Mesa. And a lot of people -- people he cares about -- are
counting on him.
Characters - Advanced facial animation system delivers the most
sophisticated in-game characters ever seen. With 40 distinct facial
"muscles," human characters convey the full array of human emotion, and
respond to the player with fluidity and intelligence.
Physics - From pebbles to water to 2-ton trucks respond as expected, as
they obey the laws of mass, friction, gravity, and buoyancy.
Graphics - Source's shader-based renderer, like the one used at Pixar to
create movies such as Toy Story and Monster's, Inc., creates the most
beautiful and realistic environments ever seen in a video game.
AI - Neither friends nor enemies charge blindly into the fray. They can
assess threats, navigate tricky terrain, and fashion weapons from whatever
is at hand.
Vengeance presents yet another excellent release of the action-packed
thriller Half-Life 2.
This time around, we have made a fully compatible installer for those
who did not wish to have their internet connection active while
installing this game, or for those who had firewalled STEAM/VALVE servers.
In addition, we have also upgraded the emulator's capabilities and as a
result the game runs even FASTER than our previous release. As a result,
you can expect even better gameplay, and shorter loading times.
The emulator has been carefully profiled against Half-Life 2, and file
data throughput has been optimized even further. This brings the emulator
to version 1.10. Most of the important emulator settings are configurable
for advanced users by using the steamemu.ini configuration file.
And in addition to improved game performance, we have enabled our
emulator to create cracked servers for Counter-Strike Source. Thus,
whoever is running the game using the Vengeance emulator from this release
can create their own cracked servers for CS: Source, and also play on
other cracked servers.
Please note that the previous release DOES work, if you have your internet
connection active and your firewalls off.
Install Notes (Please follow these instructions IN ORDER)
1. Unpack the release with WinRAR or equivalent
2. Burn with Nero Burning ROM, CDRWin or equivalent.
3. *OPTIONAL STEP*
Disconnect your computer from the internet if you do not
wish any contact with the VALVE servers during the installation.
This WILL NOT alter or disable gameplay or any features, so do not worry
if you have chosen to disconnect your internet.
4. Run the autoplay, choose "Install Half-Life 2", then follow the
instructions on-screen to install STEAM, and then Half-Life 2.
*NOTE* You MUST install Counter-Strike Source as well or you will get an
error for the file hl2.ico1 in hl24.cab on CD4.
This is by fault of VALVE itself and this error is found on the
original retail copies of both the cd version and dvd.
5. After installation, depending on if your internet connection is active,
STEAM will ask you to create an account or login as an existing user.
Simply close this window once you see it as you DO NOT need a STEAM
account to play this release, nor do you need to launch or logon to
It will also attempt to update the STEAM platform client, so just turn
on your firewall if you do not want to update the STEAM client.
If your internet was inactive during installation, once you reconnect it
may pop-up for you as well, so just close the window and turn on your
firewall only if you wish to avoid contact with STEAM at this point of
REMEMBER THIS UPDATE IS FOR THE STEAM CLIENT ONLY! IT IS NOT NECESSARY
TO UPDATE. YOU DO NOT NEED INTERNET TO PLAY OUR HALF-LIFE 2.
CONTINUE READING ENTIRE NFO FOR MORE INFORMATION.
6. From the /VENGEANCE/HL2Installer/ directory on the DVD, double click the
This installer will automatically rename needed GCF files in the
SteamApps directory on your HDD (which is normally done by STEAM when
installing with an active internet connection).
The installer has now been modified to work offline, without any
interaction with the VALVE servers. So no worries about the installation
ever being blocked or calling home.
Next, the h2install.exe will automatically extract the necessary files
to run Half-Life 2 to "<install directory>SteamAppsUserHalf-Life 2".
Finally, the hl2install.exe will render the game into full offline mode,
meaning, upon the first launch of the game, there will be no contact
with VALVE's master server or friends servers.
