Define "not loading."
Not launching or the game isn't loading?

Have your tried verifying the cache and re-installing?

By load, I mean when I click play the screen: preparing to launch Half Life 2 pops up, but sits there for an oddly long amount of time (longer than ussaul). I did not reinstall, but I did verify cache which did not work. If I was to reinstall, would I lose my data?

I am currently reinstalling the game, hopefully this works, thanks for your help Bro : ) I will update you on what happens if something goes mad wrong.

No problem, and you won't lose your saves.

Keep me posted.

I think the game has to be updated, I am new to steam, how do I update my games?
Jason Forrester Aug 5 @ 11:14am 
If you go to the game properties you can choose your update options.
It usually happens when you try to start the game.

well I have it to update asap, so I still don't understand why I can't load the game
Jason Forrester Aug 5 @ 11:26am 
I'm just curious... what are you running on?

GPU?
CPU?
RAM?
OP?

I use a mac

Ah ok.

Is it new or old (in years)?

I got it for christmass last year
Jason Forrester Aug 5 @ 12:00pm 
Ok... so not bad.
Let me think....

Have you re-installed the game?

~ Jason
randEPIC Aug 5 @ 12:01pm 
yes
Jason Forrester Aug 5 @ 5:38pm 
Ok.
So your problem is still persisting then?

This seems like the best thread on the subject... but the people on there are using windows...

Tell me if you found anything in there useful.

Couldn't find any thing useful, but I think I will give up on the issue, I was halfway through the game anyways, besides that, thanks for the help
