Thanks Valve.
Just bought the orange box expecting to have a good time playing half life 2 and portal without issue. Well thanks to the bug: http://steamcommunity.com/app/220/discussions/ I cant.
I really wanted to play this and portal but oh well. I dont know if valve is still uodating these particular games so i think I just wasted 20 dollars.
EDIT: Well i did just buy the witcher 1 on sale yesterday. Maybe that will hold me over

That link is messed up, is it a glitch where everything is super bright?

Whats that? Never heard of it.

The problem doesn't happen to me, I looked around and I think if you have it turned on it might solve the problem. Go to your Library and right click on Half Life 2. A list should appear, and at the bottom is properties. Click on properties and a tab will appear. Click on Beta and enable Steampipe Beta.

First rule of steam; Don't buy old games unless they're on sale.

Ugh, there's a bug with my game, better make a maltempered post about it instead of actually searching for solutions.

Have you tried validating the cache, uninstalling and reinstalling, installing from steam, installing from disc or installing the hl2 beta?
