maybe 800 x 600 with nothing turned on as far as eye candy
also yeah i beat this game last thursday, it was a kickass game all the way through
the ending was left wide open so expect a sequel
i just wish you could somehow use the new gravitron weapon throughout the entire game, the updated version that lets you pick up people and whip em around
I played 60% of it at 800x600 because I thought my system wouldn't handle it. The first thing when I ran it I got a message saying the chipset (Nvidia Gforce 4 420 Go) in my laptop may not work properly. I thought "You liars!' because they put only a Directx 7.0 compatible graphic card as a requirement. Then it crashed 1/2 of the way through the G-Man's opening statement. I tried a new driver and it wouldn't play at all. Then I rolled back the driver and turned off some background applications like my Logitech game pad controller and it RAN. cool.
Around 60% of the way through I switched to 1024x768 and it worked! Now I turned up the details to mediums (recommended) and it still works.
Cool, now I'm re-playing it at this resolution.
I agree with the gravity gun. Try turning on the console in the options menu and use the command 'sv_cheats 1' to activate cheat code ability. Then type in 'impulse 101' and you should get the gun.
I thought Alex was a babe! Woooohooo!
I missed the rail gun from the Half-Life '1' Take down an apachee in 2 shots!
I agree on the ending. I have the players desire to get my hands on that G-Man, bare handed! Let him wheeze on the end of my nuckles!
With a new engine they should be able to just whip up a new game a whole lot sooner; I hope.
