I've recently started a new game on Half Life 2 after years of avoiding it. I had completely forgotten the reason for avoiding the game until I got up to the point just after Father Grigori gives you the shotgun.
Up until this point, the game runs fine - completely bug-free! However, once I decend the elevator and pass into the next 'zone' I begin having these problems:
- Bullets are doing absolutely no damage to anything;
- I cannot hit anything with the crowbar
- Grenades seemingly fall straight through the floor.
- When I use the switch to move the platform across, I fall straight through the platform too.
I can, however, still take damage from enemies. It led me to loading back a few chapters in a futile attempt to see if that would fix it. It did not. I've cleared the game's cache and tried re-installing it. I even tried installing it on another computer to see if it was anything to do with hardware etc and it still has the same problem. Maybe I'm just being a bit dim, but I cannot seem to find any solution to this problem. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time.
(p.s. sorry if this isn't the correct place to post about bugs, I tried using the search function but it was to no avail...)
