have downloaded a mod that adds a bloom effect to half life 22. only thing is i have the non-steam version of half life 2, and the mod says when u install it, steam should automatically detect it.

any workaround?

Go out and buy the game... All versions of HL2 include steam unless you downloaded it.

Even if you bought this and are using a "no-Steam" crack/patch, you are encouraging piracy of this game by downloading patches used by pirates.

P.S. Based on some of your previous posts, I would say you really should stay away from cracks and such, as it looks like your "pirating" may be causing you problems...

before u all start hounding me let me make it clear

1. i buy 80% of all my games, nut some games are sio crap, no way im shelling ot dough for a pos

2. half life 2 was one of the games i DID purchase lasst year, but i am using the cracked exe with the cracked patch (no-steam) to play as i notice a big fps increase doing so

i am sure there are a lot more members on this forum who pirate everything

Just because others do, doesn't make it okay and you will never be able to justify it.

And do you have some pirated software that is making everything you type come out incomprehensible?

Haha this guys an idiot, a real tool. He players with fire and gets burned. Here's a tip clown, if your not savvy enough to deal with ad-ware/spyware/virus/codecs/Rar files/p2p apps/cracks/keygens/serials. Don't bother eh? You make the rest of us legitimate pirates look dumb.

I refuse to pay $60 for a pair of pants!!! Maybe I should steal them.... :rolleyes: In all honesty though... everyone at least once has used a pirated version of some software. But if you do this... dont expect help for it or things to work right and I certainly would not go around telling people about it and making yourself known. Expecially with HL2... valve is coming down very hard on that kind of stuff I believe.
