Windows 7: half life

Windows 7 RC (7100)
 
 

Ok I've gotten it to work and I've been playing for half an hour and no crash!
I sent the render to D3D. It was a bit stubborn and I had to change that setting three times, which restarted it three times.
Now it works! However, if I change color mode to 32-bit then it says that option is not availble, switching to software rendering. And 16 bit is ok, but its starting to get kind of annoying.
I have the latest drivers installed.

Try to launch the game in Administrator Mode.
Right click it and go to compatibility mode and check run as administrator.
Then try to change the settings again.

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...
