Half Life 2 Episode 1 cheat ?

  iscanut 10:44 18 Apr 2008

I had managed to get to level 3 before I had to reconfigure my pc and lost all my game settings, saved files etc..so I have to start all over again. Not being an experienced gamer, it took me ages to get to where I was and I would like to carry on where I left off. Does anyone know if I can cheat and load in the level that I was on as I don't think I can face starting afresh. I am aware of the cheat console, but I cannot figure out what I need to do. I want to load Chapter 4 Urban Flight.

Have tried but no success. At the console I typed in... maps ep1_c17_01 and then got the response in the console of PENDING: (fs) ep1_c17_01.bsp
I have no idea what this means and am still no clearer how to start the game off in Chapter 4. Anyone know what I am doing wrong and what else I should do?

Try and google for cheat codes.

These work differently.
The one you want may be the maps one.

Thanks..my mistake was to prefix the map location with maps rather than map ! Map ( singular ) worked fine. Many thanks to all of you.
