    i just installed hl2, but everytime that i try to start it, i get this message saying: "Setup file 'gameinfo.txt' doesn't exist in subdirectory 'hl2'. Check your -game parameter or VCONFIG setting."

    there is no gameinfo.txt in my hl2 folder, and i dont have anything else that i could copy it to...

    PLEASE HELP! i just found the game after about months of searching, and i REALLY WANT 2 PLAY!!!!
  2. Open steam and go under the "My Games" tab. Right click on "Half-Life 2" and go to "properties." In the properties window, go to the "Local Files" tab. Click on the button that says "Verify integrity of game cache...." This should re-download any missing or corrupt Half-Life 2 files.


    Or you could try buying the game, crotchstain.

    /EDIT Seriously though, if you want to play, get an internet connection, and get Steam. Hell, get the Orange Box. It's worth it.

    well, the reason that i DONT HAVE STEAM is cause i dont have frikin internet!!!!


    EDIT and if i pirated it then do you think that i would have the balls 2 post something like that on here?

    Except that BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE STEAM the only possible way to even have HL2 on your PC is PIRACY.


    You have to have an internet connection to play HL2, and you have to have Steam to play HL2. And you don't have to have balls to post something like that here - you just need to be stupid.

    I thought it was possible he was just an idiot.

    i found the game in a box in my attic. i had been looking for it for a few months after i moved into my new house. we have only gotten internet set up for one computer. soon i will get internet on the good one in my room.

  14. Well, maybe he has the hard copy of HL2 where you install the bulk files and then register it on Steam. I actually bought that version when it was still bundled with CSS, though I didn't think activating it online was that hard.

    You just have to download a 2 mb file to get Steam, though the CD set should have a copy of that program on the disk.

    I don't know why you are missing that text file, but maybe a relative of yours installed it previously...


    Ah hell, whom am I kidding? :LOL:

    Come back when you've purchased the game. On second thoughts, don't come back.
