View Full Version : HL2 Single Player Messed up

01-20-06, 02:37 PM
I let my game autoupdate and last week I d/l the Fakefactory Hi res pack but it did not install properly and I never got the chance to play it. I installed it to the sources mods dir but no luck.

I then uninstalled it and decided to play Follow Freeman in sp mode. Holy cr*p. Frames dropped from over 120 to 0 and sound stutter was incredible. Needless to say slide show ensued. Also my orange light on computer started to blink like swap file useage gone mad.

I had not play SP for about 3 to 4 months so I don't know why this was happening. I was not O/C'ing anything and at the time I was using forceware 81.98. Same result with 82.65's.

I quit and it took 5 mins for orange light to go out.

I then tried HL2 deathmatch and it ran flawlessly with 4xAA and 8XAF. What is going on.

Why is Single Player so bad?

Help please

validate your HL2 folder something must be corrupt there.

I validated via Valve and nothing has changed.

Doesn't look too good.

Can I uninstall Single player but keep deathmatch?
