Damn the biggest improvement this far is how good the vehicles (airboat) handle compared to HL1

okay...
the graphics are beautiful although i have a weird pausing issue with my pc. I think it's because BTV is running in background among other things.

amd 64 3000+
1 gig corsair xms
bfg 6800gt oc

the weapons are great, and the physics, fantastic. Unlike doom3, the textures are really well done, and the whole hame has a polished feel, water and all.

my only issues the stutters, but i think it is running apps.

in the morning i will put it on my x800 pc and see how it fares

Damn... I want to keep playing. That was fun...

1024 with 4xAA and 8XAF on an Athlon XP1800 and GeForce 6800 NU

theblackbox, you have a 6800GT and an X800? Do you consider yourself a generous man?

wow, runs ok on XP 2500+, 1Gig RAM, 9600XT at 1028X768. The loading times are annoying though. I must say, I prefer the pistol over the SMG. Time to go to bed. I will have to play some more tomorrow :)

Edit: By the way I have the very latest drivers that just came out the other day- 4.11 I think?

Edit: One more thing, HL2 is awesome.

if you can access console on HL2 [you wud have to enable it in the options first ] ( i aint played it yet, still at school :() try typing CL_SMOOTH 0, this removes stuttering in CS: S so i imagine it does the same in hl2
