Update your graphics drivers, your sound drivers and DirectX.
Disable your antivirus, your firewall and any other programs that possibly can cause any problems.

Go to the Steam Games list, right click on Half-Life, choose Delete local content or something like that. Then download Half-Life again.

Have you got any problems with any other game?

Is this in steam?

Try removing the half-life CFG archive in your account folder in steam.
Perhaps there is something wrong with it.
All mods gathers information from this file, and so does the original game itself.
If it has gone corrupt it will effect the mods aswell.

When you remove it steam will automatically redownload it upon launch.
T'is worth a try imo.

ummm.... it's WON :D

The problem is : I've got a lot of custom content on it ( hl with the mods = aprox. 4 GB .....) and I don't want to delete it :((

I'm almost crying of nerves . It's something strange thought and I hope I don't have viruses .

I'm using COMODO firewall pro and avg antivirus free edition.

can this be a problem with the dlls ?

Sounds like an issue I had a few years back, laso with WON.

I accidently replaced a few needed files with some non-working custom content, I think they came with a shitty map or something like that. With WON you should always have a backup with the original HL files, such as the .dll's and the hl.exe.

OH NO !!!!! I'll ask a friend to give me the dll and exe ... I hope it'll work :( ....

later EDIT : it doesn't work and I replaced the exe and dll file :((

Yes , I changed "sentences.txt" and that's all.

Why don't you just move all your mods (the mod folders) to a temporary folder, then uninstall HL, clean your HL dorectory, and then reinstall HL back into that directory. Then you update to version 1.1.1.0. and then you put all your mods from your temp folder back into your HL folder. That way you don't have to reinstall every single mod.

Yeah, you haven't given us alot to work with C Striker.

Just in case, check your video config settings and make sure there on the normal settings. But seriously, its not a big deal reinstalling half-life. Cut all the mods onto your desktop than put them back after you've reinstalled Half-life.

I;m back again with the same problem . This is some mysterious error in halflife . I reinstalled the half-life files and it worked fine again , and all the mods , too .
I'm working on my sven coop campaign - after the compile , it enters sven coop , and the screen freezes after 2 seconds . What the hell ? This is a MOD map , how the hell it affects all the game ?! Halflife won't work and the other mods too ! This is very stupid .
Please help again.

Yes, someone can access your computer without your firewall telling you.
But why the hell would someone mess with you only when you are playing Half-Life? The point is I don't think someone is controlling your computer.

If you use WON instead of Steam you can only use old versions of the game.
In the newer, updated versions of Half-Life that you only can get through Steam your problem is probably already fixed.

I;m using WON because all of my friends are using WON and we have a small LAN.

Why would steam prevent you playing on a LAN?

just all upgrade to steam. It's great.

Steam IS the answer to your question. A very valid one at that. There's no reason at all not to get it anymore.

And Skals, I think you're a little behind the subject here. He just did reinstall Half-Life. New problem now.

Ok ... I'll get one :) . At least , I can buy other games via steam that way ..... especially garry's mod , I think it has a lot of updates through steam , and also the car from Ep2 .

I started using WON just because Muzz's Quick Launch Program stopped working for Steam for me. = ) I think of WON as a nice backup too, and i've had no problems running almost every mod on it.

If you backup your computer--you should if you don't already-- i would include all the mod folders in your half-life directory as a priority to backup.

Try completey reinstalling Half-life, or if you really think someone is controlling your comp, restore your os with the factory DVD (i'm just about to do this on my comp, becuase i deleted a lot of shit trying to optimize, and the HDD is so fragmented it won't defrag... i bought the os/application restore dvd from the manufacturer for 11 bucks.)
