    Hey cool - I saw these up-close, and they rock! Not quite sure how Valve snuck them past Customs / Homeland Security though :D

    Nice work mate!

    Um, I have a couple I think - we were being booted out of the meeting room and I just kinda went snappy snap snap taking a few shots.

    I also have some short video footage of Blackmesa II up close, if anyone is interested...?

    how to get out of chapel?

    first off i think valve over--somethinged? the system requirements. my 2 yr old pc: 2.4 ghz, 512 mb ram, 128 mb radeon 9250 played perfectly fine except there was a lag sort of thing every now and then and the frame rates were alot slower than when i played normal half life 2
    ...and i dunno if the hdr and stuff was not right because i dont even look at that detail...hl2 was amazing enough for me and this seemed same...

    ANY WAY

    HOW DO I GET OUT OF THE CHAPEL...I GO IN, THE DOOR LOCKS BEHIND ME, AND THATS IT.....i wasted 46 minutes trying to get something to do(lol i spent so much time i even found a glitch in there :D )....
    BUT WHAT AM I SUPPPOSED TO DO....please help me all i need to know is waht do i do to get the next series of events started....thanks.

    Welcome to the forums mate. You're not far from the end, so I don't want to post a direct spoiler for everyone. my tip is to turn on the Commentary under Advanced Audio Options - the clue you need is in there.

    Or read a certain sign on that large machine...

    Fun but short. A good future for gaming certainly.

    OMG IT KICKED ASS.... even on my naff graphics card you could see an improvement in reflections and the sky... as soon as you enter the game and look towards "the sun" you can see the picture adjust just like somones eyes would

    No you don't.... I just reformatted and it showed up for me. It's not "in" HL2, it's under it in the steam games menu.

    Hmmm, disappointed. With DoD:S being out HDR has lost it's lustre, and beyond HDR there's not much too it. If they'd released this 2 months ago i'd have thought it was awesome (though still too short) but now it's just meh.

    1. How do i get ontop of the chapel.

    2. After i shoot the gunship thing what's next, is there credits at the end or what? Does it end or should I just quit?

    After you shoot it down, part of the platform thing you were on "loosens up". Go underneath it through that hole and make your way into the basket thing on the right

    I'll see your 100 health and raise you 45 armor.

    [​IMG]

    You can do this without losing any health by carrying a healthpack up to the dark tunnel with sunlight streaming in, just before you turn into the courtyard. Hop up onto the ledge and sprint forward. Your goal is the small ledge that is at the bottom of the edge of the building. You will take some damage when you land, but the healthpack will recover it. Slide down the nearest incline to the next lowest level, then do it again onto the low wall. Don't worry about geometry in this area because you won't clip on it. Walk along the cliff until you are about even with the lighthouse and sprint off into the water. Swim up to the shore and take your screenshot!

    Have a look at the demo if you have Lost Coast to see how it's done (for some reason, I couldn't turn the demo into a movie. All the frames were identical to the last frame.)
