DoD "update" leaves DoD unstartable
After this conversion, update, whatever there's no way left to even start the game. It crashes right at display of the first screen. I can't tell if it might be related to any changes in the graphics drivers as it doesn't even run long enough to make it to the settings or any other apllication menu. Start->Crash. Can someone please fire those java-educated wannabees that drive the "social-web"-fad today and return to actually having well-trained employees building products that work?

Got the same issue, the client.dll in hl>dod isnt recognised as a valid image.

Tried renaming and re validating both dod and half life, but he validation fails to see the missing file.

Funny you should mention that. Check this article over at PCGamer -> http://www.pcgamer.com/2013/02/13/valve-layoff-hardware-mobile/?ns_campaign=article-feed&ns_mchannel=ref&ns_source=steam&ns_linkname=0&ns_fee=0 ... THAT was DIRECTLY *BEFORE* all of these so-called "updates" and "upgrades" to all of the GoldSource games!

Thanks for the link. Especially the list of those who got fired is telling. Now that sounds like borland's death repeated all over.

Thanks Weeds for the link. Maybe explains some of Steam/Valve's problems. New slaves at the oars. :-)

My take on the subject/theory is/was, in a condensed nutshell:

Let's port all of these games over to Linux, and make a "SteamBox" livingroom game console.

Steam 的DOD游戏的问题就是DOD的文件里这个文件Half-Life出现了问题 吧这个修复升级给降级就没问题了
