That I did. I never saw that damn lever once. Funny thing is, I saved on a pipe right OVER the damn thing. As soon as I loaded, I looked straight down and saw it within 2 seconds. I moved on through the airboat sequence a bit, and am at the second gate you have to get through.

The game is getting noticably tougher, but could be for one reason.......anyone still using the pistol like I am? The pistol kicks ass! :D

EDIT: How far am I away from the gravity gun?

Or, you can climb to the top of the ladder, climb across the pipe to the ledge above, then into the next room which houses another long ladder down to some water, with a big gate blocking the other room. You can also see the other side of the big pipe that's lit up red.

I cannot figure out what to do here. I feel so stupid.......
There is a red valve that you have to turn in the second room (where the water is), turn it and the water will begin to fill. Then go to the first room and you will see the water has filled up part of the room. Well, go over to where the ladder is and swim down through the hole the ladder goes through, and you'll find alittle passage that leads to the 3rd room.

Took me a little bit to figure that part out lol. I was throwing all those barrels down trying to stack them up next to the pipe but didnt work. Luckily I caught that wheel out of the corner of my eye.

Yeah, the pistol is a great little weapon to start out with. I just got done playing the first 90 min's (well after fooling around a little this moring before work) and this game rocks, I love it like I did HL1. Taking your time with this game is tough, it's too much fun.

Oh cool, you made it.

Yes, the difficulty in the game gradually increases. But the airboat is fun fun fun! I dont want to ruin anything for you about it, so I'll keep my mouth shut until you get back from playing it.

Oh, and about the Grav gun.....you're close :)


*edit*
The pistol ROCKS! I looooove the feel and sound of it! Its perfect!

i love the game and im only at the buggy level.

only downside for me is waaaaay too much loading and the load times are too long (though i could shorten them by tuning down settings).

I believe the proper terminology would be "man hacks". That is all.

Thats where I left off last night I couldn't figure it out. I did the exact same thing stacking the barrels and all, except I actually did it... took about 30 min, and I got really mad. This morning I went and found the valve. I'm at the level right after the bug bair part.

I'm about to start the Ravenholm level but I had a quick question. Does anyone know why the Xen aliens from the first game are helping the scientists? Did I miss something??

I'm guessing we'll find out more on this later in the game, b/c I have no clue either.

What folders do you need to copy to save the game to a cd? I've been downloading it from steam all day long. In case I have to reinstall don't want to be downloading for a whole day again.
Been over 8hrs only about 55% done at around 200mb/s.

I think I might just have to buy this game. Been hearing very good things about it. Do you think my Laptop would run it all right? P4 3GHZ HT, 512DDR, Radeon Mobile 9600? Don't feel like wasting the money if I can't run it at a decent FPS

Wait enslaved by the humans or the combine? Is the Prima Guide worth it?
