Half Life 2: Demo

Postby SupaSharpShoota on Tue Dec 21, 2004 9:48 pm

Has anyone had a go at downloading this demo as advertised on Steam? Its taken 3 hours to do half and it looks like its now stopped doing anything.

I thought it would take a while considering there might be thousands of others doing the same but I never thought it would take this long.

I preloaded hl2, and the morning before it dled i went online. 5mins before the forums had been taken down, 30secs after it went up the page stopped loading properly, and then they went down entirely another minute later.

Now THAT'S heavy traffic :D

I managed to download it. But my tin pig of a PC is creaking and struggling whilst playing it. I cant change the graphic settings to something lower without the game crashing....back to 1.6 I guess, but whats this....Steam has conveniently erased all my favourites.......... F**K Y** very much Steam and a Merry Christmas!!! :evil:

That's it's way of telling you to turn off your game and go get some Eggnog instead! :)

I cant uninstall this demo and its taking up valuable space on my hard drive.

This reminds me, can someone tell me how much space the full HL2 requires to install?

I can't remember how much to install but the file is 228mb and CSS is 1 1/2Gb, but thats has a shed load of extra maps and costum guns in there.
