When you say you can't run,do you mean you can't sprint/move ingame? or that the game doesn't start up.If the latter,does it say anything?

can't sprint or run in game, movement is just a slow crawl . :(

you may have a slow pc or a non functional shift key. if you can type in caps holding shift, then try to look in your controls. if your shift key, or whatever key you chose to run, is binded correctly. if that doesnt work, then i have no idea how to help you
hope this helps.

X-actly.

- says, wait till you put on your suit Gordon, and then I'm gonna headhump you.

nah even with the suit it wouldn't work. i can run in other games though, it's just odd. can't figure it out.

I am having the same issue. No sprint/running. I have rebound to another key, and it still doesn't work. I also seem to fall slowly, jumping, falling off ledges, etc, almost as if the in game gravity has been turned down.

I just seem to not sprint. Everything else is fine, except I'm having a lighting glitch where eevrything seems to give off its own light. Anyone else?

run the game in DX 8.0

Updates broke the game recently. No cinematic mod, faulty-nonexistent DX 9.0 and later functionality

Same issue. No matter what key I assign it to I can't run. So i just die. Not very fun since i just started the game over after not playing it for a couple years.

DX 8.0 Didn't work.

Here is the answer. Works.

When I open this, it just brings me to the different topics under the search "Can't run."

Really want to enjoy this game :(
