@alfred- none of these things have been fixed on my copy. Furthermore, starting the game at any point leaves me without weapons, HEV suit, or even the HUD. Enemies suffer bad pathfinding, and are often content to ignore me completely. Have either of those latter problems been addressed via patches?

A side note- I'm using the Mac version. Does that affect anything?

Just get the original hl1 if this doesnt work for you. HL Source was a bad port anyways.

A refund is not the solution. Its easy for them to throw a few thousand £ at the problem and for it to go away. I want (and I'm sure others do) our game back!

I'm half way through the game, with a Save outstanding and I have not been able to continue for 5 days now. I was waiting to complete this before playing HL2, EP1 and EP2 which I have also recently purchased. Those are also stale purchases while HL: Source is un-available.

Not a pleasant return to gaming after many years off!

I havent played an FPS for about 8 years, and a couple of weeks ago, thought I would relive HL and HL2 and then move onto the EP1/EP2 storys which would be totally new.

If ths is the present & future of PC gaming, F**k it, and F**k Steam!

I sent a Support ticket to Steam approx 24 hours ago regarding the lack of availability of this game to non-beta plays. NO reply. It's not like we spent our money on this thing is it? Oh wait, Yes we did! Steam... FIX THIS GAME FOR NON-BETA

Unfortunately Windows users can't play it anymore, the Update is frozen and the game fails a validation check.

@Woody, this was fixed by a small update yesterday (Monday).

I remember buying this game when this update came out. I was so hyped to finally play the source version of HL1. Well, the update ruined many things; hopefully Valve come out with another update to fix this broken version.

The problems are:

1) Training room will not unlock.
2) Sound/Music files are corrupted and whatnot.
3) Tram scene is broken as well. (No female voice, tram passes scripted events such as waiting for the box to move, etc.)

Please fix this.

I don't really wanna complain much about the problems this update has, i'm just happy that it finally got converted to steampipe. And i'm sure they will fix the problems.
