    I will never understand some people's desire to play an unfinished version of a groundbreaking, revolutionary game. To me it seems like it would just spoil it, big time. Like you're sacrificing a big part of the game to play it sooner.

    I hope that you've actually downloaded this leaked copy and played it. Otherwise you shouldn't be teasing us.

    I've seen a lot of rumors about a delay, but they are all just rumors until I hear of word directly from Valve.

    Nevertheless, in the event that it does happen, I'll be upset. I've never been so excited about a game before. As picky as I am about games, I dont really play many but the ones that I do like I play a lot of them. For example Battlefield 1942, and up until months ago I was playing a lot of Half Life (Day of Defeat) for over a year.

    You mean Secret Weapons? Yea I've been waiting on that to come out for a really long time. I checked Walmart the other day but they didnt have it. I will have to drop by Best Buy to see if they do. It IS out already right?

    Hey, you guys that are downloading this, let us know if it's for real and worth downloading. I'm reading a post at ShareReactor's forum, that says these files are fake. From what I gather they are 700 or 900 MB's? For that matter, where are you downloading from, what link. All the links I tried, even thought I can't read them, (German?), are broken.

    heres a claimed to be hl2 alpha shot

    im not confiming it but at least it gives us a clue

    That's not a alpha shot, that is straight from the E3 videos. I am beginning to think it indeed has not been leaked, not that I believe it in the first place but I was hoping. Although I'm sure the version of the game they used at E3 was probably an Alpha version.

    sure something has leaked

    from what i gathered around the net it seems that this 700 Mb hl2 file is the HL2 TECH DEMO ITSELF valve showed us at e3 and its meant to show us the phisiques of the game(not the vdo capture from the tech demo)

    ((so this file is more likely to be that working tech demo itself))

    i wish smone has finished the DL to give us some more info on that,personally my DL job hasnt finished yet.

    that is the pic cliamed to be from the 700 Mb hl2 file.

    it took me two days

    and i screwed it up by changing file extensions, so i'm back at it.................would someone research wtf you once you get it............there are just a block of install icon, etc..........find out if it has to go into half lifes folders or what, thx.....maybe i was supposed to burn it to disk?

    try this JSR:
    Place the map, "hl2_techdemo.bsp" in your half-life/valve/maps directory.

    it should work.

    I completely agree.

    I can understand wanting to partake in a beta test, but going all out just to get some leaked, unfinished copy to play something which may be broke all to hell and missing tons of important fixes...

    Dunno... seems stupid to me. I would rather wait until a final copy is available, so I know I am getting what the programmers intended.
