Half-Life 2 Beta + Fixes (Intel)
Mac OS X | English | VU Games | Valve Software | 4.32GB
Genre: Sci-Fi First-Person Shooter
This download includes a Half-Life 2 Beta installation with all important custom patches and maps applied that should help to increase the overall Beta experience siginificantly. (...assuming that you didn't already go through the hassle of applying them yourself.)
Extract the game onto your harddrive. It is recommended that you use the included Mac launchers for starting the game.
Do NOT separate/move the folders from the main directory or the game will fail to work - keep all 3 files (Half-Life 2 Beta.app, Gamefiles HL2 and Map Launcher) always in the same directory!
-100+ fixed maps included
-14 functional gameplay demos recorded
-custom config file scripts included in /hl2/cfg/ subdir for launching the playable maps with additional equipment/parameters - use the "exec" command to load these maps/demos from the ingame console or the "+exec" argument if you want to make a bat launcher for each map.
-engine notification messages disabled
-replaced some of the dev textures to make the WIP maps look/feel more complete
-fixed normalmap & cubemap issues (purple shaders)
-added Half Life 2 Alpha Patch
-added Airex mod
-added "The Thing" mod
-added Team GabeN patch
-added hl-beta.spb.ru mega patch
-added multiplayer patch with working serverbrowser + GameUI & savegame fix
-added weapon fixes
-starting a new game now works
-added custom background music for the main menu
-added properly fixed versions of E3_strider, E3_terminal, E3_industrial, E3_town and many others - thanks go to LLI.JI.bI.K for his outstanding work
- included a patched engine.dll that should prevent the "less than 15MB free memory" error from appearing on certain machines with more than 2 GB of RAM.
-Some minor graphical problems may occur on certain maps such as messed up shadows for example - you can disable them by opening the autoexec.cfg file in Gamesfiles HL2/HL2 Beta/hl2/cfg/ and change r_shadows "1" to r_shadows "0".
This should give you an accurate idea of how the original Half-Life 2 should have looked like. I hope you find it useful despite its incomplete state.
