    I never played HL of 1998 & thought its about time to experience it, so I went to purchase it digitally off valve. But it rejected my visa card.:cheese:

    1$ short:p So have to wait to tommoz to play it.....

    I cant wait....

    If you'd purchased it on the 10th anniversary of HL you would have been able to buy it for 98 cents, seems you've missed out!

    yeah I heard about that, oh well.

    I would have preferred to buy the shiny new box set rather then download it, but seems they don't sell anymore.

    Be wary, at least if you live in Europe. I've heard that some people in Europe (outside of Germany) have gotten the Germany's censored version that transforms humans to robots and removes all blood from the game(also prevents scientists from getting killed). Yeah, the game is only 98 cents, but I wouldn't want to tarnish the Half-Life 1 experience by getting a bs cencored copy.

    Just a heads-up.

    Ah well, woops, missed the fact that the offer isn't on anymore. Anyway, you should probably wait until Black Mesa: Source so you'll experience Half-Life with all the glory of the Orange Box engine for the first time and aren't spoilered by the 1998 version.

    Right hand click the game, properties, local files and then it's one of the buttons there.

    Extremely useful feature, maybe the best feature Steam has.

    This has recently helped me when Ep 1 stopped working. It's definitely the best piece of advice I'd give.

    I don't think it would make that much difference.
    The main reason for it is for fixing bugs.
    Defragmenting on the other hand may help performance.
