View Full Version : Freezes every few minutes with Half Life 2

11-17-04, 03:25 PM
I am getting these weird "freezes" where the sound kinda loops for a few seconds, then everything goes back to normal.

Does anybody have any idea whats up or how to fix it?

Well from what I hear, its either the autosave feature or the sounds being loaded for that section of the game. It seems to affect almost everyone and at the moment there is no fix, but Valve are working on it.

Hi !
I was got the same problem last night, but today i change my AGP Aperture Size from 256 to 128 (i'm still thinking to drop it to 64 :) ), and there is no problem anymore (or maybe there is no so frustraiting, becouse is not so much of this freezes), try to manage Yours AGP AS.

greetings :)

Adding -heapsize 256000 to the hl2 launch options in steam fixed this issue for me.
