    nVIDIA did it (this is only for FUN)

    nVIDIA did it! The same company questioned for skewing 3DMark scores, realeasing Doom3 beta (for gfx testing purposes they had this beta) having very poor performing flagship cards running HL2 compared to ATIs, and having to play catch up to ATI's new XTs (bundled with HL2). THIS IS PURELY...

    Can Steam handle HL2 release as is?

    *note the huge difference (8 fold) of bit to byte conversions Current Steam bandwith available (rounded up) is 1500mbps 1500/8 = 187.5 MBs avg acceptable DL speed is 100KBs (or 0.1 MBs , 10 sec per MB) Thus, 187.5MBs / 0.1 MBs = 1875 1875 is the amount of users the bandwith can handle...

    Size of Source and other engines

    How large (in file size or even lines of code) do you think Source is? How large was HL's engine and/or Ut2k3 And when a demo is released for a game, the whole engine must go with it , right? Edit: Just checked , the HL SDK Source Only was bout 18mb...interesting....

    BUllets in Source

    Does anyone know for sure wether bullets will be physically created/emulated (like the crowbar is a rod in space) with mass and velocity to each bullet. This is highly unlikely given the processor usage to "chart" all those bullets, but I was just wondering.... Will bullets be like in HL1...
