Its not the vids btw. It says counterstrike, and its downloading something. I dont even have counterstrike for one thing. Is it downloading the full game? :D

That would be sweet.

How do I stop it? And plus it doesnt tell me how big the file is, so i might be downloading all night not knowing what it is.

Can someone explain this to me please?

I dont know I just tried it, and it tries to connect to a server, and this just sits there. And then I have to alt-tab close it. The menu and everything comes up tho. So all I have to do is go download the full 1.6 patch and I can play?

if it sits there trying to connect it means its downloading stuff, just leave it, it'll download everything you need.

If only you could play through something other than Steam... I downloaded CS and I can't even play it since the map doesn't load. I imagine it would probably be the same for Half-Life 1.

yes HL is now free via steam.

CS always has been free. You can install 1.5 onto any up to date version of half life. www.counter-strike.net for files.

CS1.6 BETA (and I cannot stress the BETA enough) is available free via steam only. That is what steam will download if you set counterstrike in your games preferences.

depends where you get it from. It's on fileplanet and fileshack (i think) to subscribers and also on csnation.counter-strike.net but you can probably find it scattered around the web somewhere for free, try google or kazaa if you can't afford $4 on csnation

Steam will always be free.
It's the games that you would pay for.

On pages like FilePlanet it costs money but if you do a search on google you can find it for free.
