having problems installing and playing half life 2
finally managed to register game using the steam account but cannot get game to start up offline without logging on to steam account every time i want to play the game. on settings tab on steam the box is not checked that i dont want it to remember my account details. did i miss something whilst installing ? should i reinstall the game from scratch ?
also after a few minutes when i have briefly got the thinhg working the pc freezes totally and i have to reboot !
using a laptop with amd 64 and ati 6700 motability card with 1gb ram .#
please help as i have been looking forward to playing this game !
From the Manual/card with the game Offline mode will not be available and an internet connection will be required if 1 - you do not select the "Remember my password" option in the Login screen 2 - you choose to login as a different user 3 - You check "don't save account information on this computer" On the Steam account settings I would suggest your problem is caused by one of these.
