Running Half Life?


i wanted to play HL and i installed it
i started it the first time and it told me to go to 16 bit depth which i did,
When i started again it went to a messy screen and simply froze?
can anyone help me with this issue i know nothing. I read that you have to start it and apply Opengl and res you want with a speical command.??
Thank You

special command?
the only thing you have to do (this is as long as you have the drivers installed for your video card) is open up cs, and go to video modes and set it to use opengl as opposed to software mode, there is nothing special....

well
IA32 = 32 bit pocessor (pentium, athlon, etc...)
IA64 = 64 bit processor (intel itanium 64bit processor)
AMD64 = 64 bit processor (amd opteron 64bit processor and Athlon64 processor)
so i am willing to bet you don't have a 64 bit processor, so you'll be downloading the IA32 driver...

" TIP: There is support for easy debug loggin in
userwinex. Just add "log" as the first
parameter, like this:
userwinex log -- hl.exe -console "

use a big command line to execute your game. take what you don't need away from this -

winex hl.exe –console –toconsole -gl -w 1024 –game MOD +connect X.X.X.X -gldrv Default

May have to edit your winex config file. see this link -

more links and stuff -

winex -workdir "/home/skilless/.transgaming/c_drive/SIERRA/Half-Life" "C:/SIERRA/Half-Life/hl.exe" -console -game cstrike -numericping
