HL2 Highway 17 Bug
Can anyone help me out?
When I enter the small building that has healthkits on a table and open the door to get onto the bridge, my screen fades to black, and I respawn. It doesn't load the bridge. Anybody help me?

I looked into console and saw this -
Can't savegame with a dead player

I was never killed, or fell off anything. I had full health, and 73 suit power.
:L

I got a reply from Steam Support which I will paste for you -


-If you are running in Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8, please completely exit Steam, and right-click on the shortcut which you use to launch Steam and select "Run as Administrator."

-If you are running in Windows XP, take the following steps (ignore these if you are using Windows 7 or Vista):
1) Exit Steam.
2) Go to the "Start" menu, select "Run", type "regedit" and click "OK".
3) Navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\VALVE
4) Right click and select "Permissions"
5) Check the "Allow" boxes for "Admin" and "System" for both "Full control" and "Read".


Then verify the GCF for this game:
Title: Verifying Game Cache Files (GCF)
Link: http://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=2037-QEUH-3335

Verifying the GCF solves many issues for most games.

Huh, that could do it. 'Cause what I did was I just opened up the command console and entered in the name of the map (which I don't know off the top of my head, but I could get it for you), haven't been back to that level yet but I did finally managed to beat the rest of the game.

Type map d2_coast_08 in the console, it probably wont start after you open the door, if it start and you have no weapons you will need to activate cheats and use impulse 101 to get weapons and the HEV suit.
