Just to let you guys know There is a rumor about a HL2 demo that has hit the web. IMO it's false, if you go to supernova (if you can get there on your own) there is a file "Hl2 fulldemo e32004" that is 664MB. That is the suspected file. But, if you look just a little higher ther is a file "HL2 and CS Port E3 Video FULL" that is also 664MB. They are both most likely high res videos of the HL2 demonstration at this year's E3 conference.

If it were true, Valve would be using it as an excuse to delay the game by another year.

I see they have incorporated an ad server. So if your firewall blocks this ad server, you don't see anything.
Just seen this on the forums, as there's loads of people with the same problem.
Yesterday was fine, but today it's been a nightmare.
Oh well, time to configure outpost.

This movie spawned at gamespy/fileplanet and if you want you can get in line (http://www.fileplanet.com/files/140000/140589.shtml). :)
Mirrors are starting to pop up though, even if this is an "exclusive" FP movie. :o

The torrent already mentioned:
http://66.90.75.92/suprnova//torrents/1735/hl2_fulldemo_e32004-zip.torrent

A couple of ftp's to hammer. :ORDER:

High quality.

hrm...looking fwd to seeing this when I get home tonight. Can't believe I'm saying this but compared to some other titles, the graphics are beginning to look a 'lil dated though. Gameplay is whats most important though. :cool:

/me doesn't have to wait in line at FilePlanet.

Honestly, my subscription has more than paid for itself between the game footage movies and demos - saved me a bunch of money over buying stuff that I considered lousy. :D

I remember someone showing an email from Gabe or someone at valve, mentioning a HL2 benchmark to be released after E3.

Man, I wish I could find a mirror that wasn't absolutely and completely hammered. In the meantime, I'm 915/1234 on Fileplanet.

Try Fileshack...I had a 1 minute wait on Chicago server and I'm not on their paid "Mercury" service...just the wait in line version..I did this about an hour ago..

I love Fileshack - a much better service than Fileplanet. But Fileshack doesn't have the 650M video of both conferences, just the 11.84M E3 Trailer and some other stuff. Oh well, 476 /1421....

OK, this is BS. I got within 140 kb of the file being done when FlashGet decided that it didn't want to download any more. No matter how many times I tried to resume - nope, sorry. That's what I get from moving away from DAP 5.3. :rant:
