Seems to have been the door, not entirely sure why since it was just a simple rectangular sliding door, but I deleted it and made a new one which fixed the problem.

Thanks for your suggestions guys.

Hey TWHL, long time no see. I've got a problem I've never personally encountered before and haven't been able to dig up any info on through Google. Basically, after compiling my map I've found two instances where there are invisible walls that can be passed through from one side but not the other.

The first I've encountered is through a doorway, which can be passed through normally going the direction you're supposed to be travelling, but if you try to backtrack you'll be blocked. Even more oddly is that sometimes it seems like you can jump over or crouch under this wall to bypass it.

The second appeared in the middle of a random hallway, but also has disappeared completely after recompiling the map with no changes made (the first one has remained despite multiple compiles).

Obviously I didn't construct anything of the sort in Hammer, and I don't think I'm seeing any errors in the log either.

If you're interested, here's a link to the map files. Maybe someone can see something I'm missing, it has been 4 years since I made a map after all.

You'll find the invisible wall right in the first doorway if you try to backtrack once walking through it.

I just installed Half-Life on a new computer. I started the game up and went to set the resolution to widescreen but for some reason the resolution looks like this now:

I can't even switch the options menu tab to video so that I can change it back to normal. I also already tried to reinstall. Anybody know of a solution?

I used Hammer 3.5, The old worldcraft version included tells me I'm missing my d3drm dll which I'll assume is because the version of DirectX it uses is old and I don't have it.

I've already tried mapping with the included fgd. Unfortunately I get a "mod_loadbrushmodel wrong version number error" which I assume comes from the fact that the compiling tools in Hammer are too new for the old engine.

Either way it's pretty damn awesome, but does anyone know how to enable the 'use' key, or if it even existed this far back? It's not under options anywhere I noticed and while shooting stuff in the default tech demo map works, it does not in the actual game. I pretty much have to noclip through doors right now.

in Complete bullshit new law passed in US Post #311767
I don't see why the argument over gun laws always has to be two extremes, guns and no guns. Personally I think stricter gun laws would be beneficial and at the same time allow people to still keep their weapons for defense and hunting. Does any civilian really need an assault rifle? What would we use it for? Unless your house is under attack by a huge group of armed men, self defense can be handled with a handgun or shotgun and hunters can easily kill a deer without one. So why sell them for public use? Can't there be a middle ground where everyone is happy? Gun people get to keep their rights and people who think it'll reduce shootings will be more content knowing people can't easily get their hands on these weapons.

Whether or not this will reduce shootings and gun violence would remain to be seen, but WHY NOT do it? I haven't seen one good argument over why civilians should be able to buy military grade weapons, even if there wasn't shooting problems, civilians simply don't need them.

in What inspired Half-Life? Post #311408
I loved the book, as King is one of my favorite authors. As for the movie I don't remember much but I do remember liking it. I can surely see the connection between it and Half-Life, maybe not the actual story but the situation is very similar.

I also would very much recommend Raising the Bar, it was a great read that'd I recommend to any HL fan.

Before I got into PC gaming I played Metroid Prime Hunters on the Nintendo DS almost every night with friends. On that I gave myself the name "Super-X" and other variations of that like "Nightmare-X" and "Omega-X" The first word in that name was always just a word I thought was cool. The X comes from the game Metroid Fusion, which was one of my favorite games and still is, where the 'X' were the main enemy. I took the 'X' from that name and used it X-LAyer2.

The layer2 is another story all together. Back in my days of only playing Nintendo systems my friend had bought Medal of Honor for the Gamecube. When playing spilt-screen you could customize your name but it would always default to "Player1-4" My friend was customizing his name and had only gotten the chance to change the 'P' in Player which he changed to 7. He then stuck with that name whenever he played '7layer2' was his official nickname at that time and in that game. I took the layer2 and turned it into X-Layer2.

The reason that the 'A' is capitalized is because whenever typing the name in somewhere I always made the type of holding shift for a bit too long and the 'A' would end up capitol, after a while I just stopped correcting that and it became part of the name, X-LAyer2.

So basically a combination of an enemy from Metroid,and a typo of Player2.

The possible peace treaty has nothing to do with that quest. The peace treaty quest is a main quest only available if the player has not yet completed either civil war quest line by the time of capturing a dragon in Dragonsreach.

Just beat Dishonored and it's definitely a game that I could play through more than once and still have it feel different. I knew I would get the 'worse' ending killing people instead of sneaking past so now I have to try it the other way around.

I generally stick to the magnum for long range and shotgun for close, but sometimes I do feel the mp5 is better like if I'm fighting a bunch of enemies at close range.

Just finished last night, and I agree with most of the nitpicks already said but I can easily overlook them because I really enjoyed playing. After playing the Half-Life campaign more times than I can count, this didn't leave me uninterested or bored ever. While some parts were frustrating (notably grunt battles) overall the gameplay seemed fun and balanced most of the time. I'd give it 9/10. I'm looking forward to Xen, hopefully we'll get it within the year.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion because I've never played it and since I loved Skyrim so much I thought I should try it out. I've only played about an hour so far but I've been having fun, as expected. Plus it's on sale for pretty cheap.

I do best with Sniper and Spy and enjoy them the most but of course get bored of playing just two classes so I switch to Soldier or Scout.

I like CTF maps which seems to be against popular preference but prefer Control Point maps over it. The new gamemode is pretty fun I just hope they add some more maps for it eventually.

Treyarch has always seemed to be the CoD developer to make something new. While I probably would buy Black Ops 2 if it were more of the same I feel it would be the last of my CoD purchases if that were the case. I don't know how long other fans would continue to buy the same thing and I assume Treyarch thought the same. I feel that the series needs a change or else it will die out within the next few years.
