Update Crashes HL1 Games (Win 7)
My games were working fine before the update, now it crashes everytime I start it up. I don't know if I'm the only one.

I looked on the Support forums and it said something about disabling DEP on HL1 and Steam, yet Steam won't budge on disabling DEP, so I'm screwed. I don't know what happened, but I bet it's something about Linux compatibilty or something. The crashing happens on HL1, CS, DoD, Ricohet, HL expansion packs and TFC.

This happened to me. All the games mentioned would crash after different amounts of time but within seconds of loading up. I deleted every game's local content and reinstalled. HL1 and CS work fine now. I haven't tried the others.

Thanks for the tip. I'll try that to see if it works.

HL1 and Counterstrike works, yet the expansion packs, TFC, DoD and Ricochet doesn't work. :( I reinstalled them, yet it crashes.

I just emailed Steam Support and the message said that They will awnser back when they find a solution. So, I'll just wait for a patch or play another game. :(

Aparently, Ricochet is the only game that works. -___-

I FOUND A SOLUTION!!!!!!
Go to Control Panel, System, Advanced System Settings, Advanced, click Settings on Performance box. Go to Data Execution Prevention, click the Turn on DEP Except Those I Select and add all the HL1 Launchers
All you have to do is go to C:Program Files/x86/Steam/steamapps/User/whatever HL1 based game (EX.TFC, DoD, ETC.) You should find a HL1 logo and click on it. Then, click add and apply. Note:DO IT ON ALL HL1 BASED GAMES OR THAT GAME WON'T WORK.

I bought an old copy of HL1 at a Goodwill for $3 and registered it on Steam. I got all the HL1 packs/mods for free and I'm whining about it. -____-

i understand that valve needs to fix things, it's annoying, but it's not like you paid full price.
i've considered hitting up the goodwill just to see if i could acquire retail copies of games. i mean i have no problem with buying them on steam (most games i would do that for) , but just the fact of actually having hard copies just for the nostalgia alone. it's just funny how times have changed, and retail pc games are a foreign concept now.
