running to some buggy thing in Half Life 2 EP2, the grenade display

i am currently playing ep2 now, found some new bug, first is the HUD with the semi automatic gun's contact grenade display and the pulse gun's energy orb display, they are gone!!! so no way to know what I have against enemy!!

the second is some minor texture bug, but just updated my graphic card's driver, solve some graphic bug in Half life 2, but some in ep2 still occur:




and i guess one more minor problem, not sure if its a bug though, the auto save no longer screen cap, only leaving a half life logo:





and this is my spec:
processor: intel core i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.20Ghz 2.20Ghz
memory: 8GB
windows: Windows 7 64-bit premium home edition Service Pack 1
Graphic: Nvidea GeForce GT 540M (Main Graphic Card, just driver updated) & Intel Graphic 3000 (used in low performance demand task)

again many thanks in advance!!

If you downloaded a non steam version of that game you would experience some missing textures but on the screen cap it will sometimes appear to be like that (happens to me sometimes also).

Have you tried playing it on DirectX 8.1 mode?

no, I wasn't aware that I could change the direct x, i always thought that it was always set on direct x 9 and nothing else...

Try validating the game files of your game, it will redownload some files that are missing.

Pink and black means missing texture files in source games. Try validating the files like rooster said. I got that issue with team fortress 2 which is another valve game and that fixed my issue.

Can't Run Half Life 2
So for some reason whenever I start Half Life 2 it just goes to a black screen and I see the round blue windows loading mouse icon. Left 4 Dead and Team Fortress 2 work perfectly fine also, which is odd. I've tried SP2 compatibility, disabling windows composition, visual themes, run as...

Half Life 2 Might Never Get Episode 3
Acknowledging that Half-Life games tend to take a bit too long to come out, Valve came up with the neat idea of episodic content for the game, releasing HL2: Episode 1 two years after the original HL2 in 2006, and in 2007, HL2: Episode 2. The idea behind this concept was to deliver the...
