  • Starting the game may emit this error message instead of playing the intro movie:
Cannot open MCI file for playback:
   279: Cannot use "all" as the device name with the specified command.
  • The original game as installed from CD works as far as the menus go, but it doesn't find the CD-ROM and you cannot start a game. Patch it to the latest available version and it will work.
  • If you install Half Life: Blue Shift on top of Half Life, you get the chance to install a bonuspack, dubbed "Half Life High Definition Pack", which includes higher-resolution textures and better models, which are also used in the original Half Life.
  • Half Life: Source is a remake of the original Half Life with the Source-Engine from Half Life 2. It features a more realistic physics engine plus some other small enhancements.
  • Game works fine, first time, through Steam - DC_
  • Uplink demo works. There may be difficulties with the OpenGL and DirectX modes, but software mode works fine. The MCI error appears here also.
