Language, voices problem. Help please !
hi, My selected language into steam for HL2 is "french", in the game setup I can only choose "english". And when I'm playing the text are in french, but the "loading" button is writing in chinese and the voices are chinese too. Who can help me for have my game fully french ? :(
Ps : When I select "English" into the steam game (half life 2) option and into the game, my game is working fully english...

I don't know what's Valve have planned with SteamPipe. I was thinking it was only to increase online games perfomances.
Obviously they are working on a general deployment.
Because I also haved languages problem I activate SteamPipe Beta and bugs are now fixed.

On an other hand I noticed that the update have completly modify files locations, so Maps and Mods must be placed in the new game folder in order to play them.

This is no longer
-Steam/SteamApps/(AccountName)/(GameName) folder but:

-Steam/SteamApps/Comon/Half-Life 2/(GameNickname) folder

Notice it's the same for Portal.

For Mods you must create a "custom" folder and place your unzipped mod folder in. After that the game will start AS IT IS THE MOD. Delete mod folder in order to return to normal setting.

As it's a beta it's not very convenient, but I hope Valve will enhance it.
