Go up the ladder onto the piping, go into the next room, near the pipes (hidden) is a valve, this will raise the water then go back to the ladder, go down and through the pipe

Wow. Been playing for about an hour, I gotta say, this is one incredible game so far. It's a ton of fun. Gonna get some sleep and let HL:Source download for a little while then jump back in! Amazing graphics as well

And YES, get a gig of RAM. 512 MB isn't enough anymore. I have no stuttering and the only framerate problems are from large shaders being drawn.

Isn't F5 is the screen capture key?
It doesn't work for me. Am I the only one who is suffering this?

Should be getting the call from EB this morning. I'll pick it up on my lunch break and then head home at 2:30, catch a quick nap, then bask in the goodness. I've been waiting years for this.

edit: never mind, it's going faster now. Still, I was expecting the unlocking to only take a few seconds, not 15-20 minutes. Oh well! Gonna start playing in a bit!
i had that to, I just clicked close... and checked the monitor status of each game... it should say hl2 is playable.

Well I had very high hopes for this game and fortunately it has lived up to them so far

Playing at 1600x1200 4xaa/8xaf and very smooth and playable. Certain areas the framerate will dip but generally it seems to be extremely smooth. I must also say that I had seen a lot of screenshots prior to getting the game and I didn't think they looked that good... boy was I wrong! Absolutely stunning visuals in this game and an overall atmosphere that really makes you feel whats happening.

In the words of the immortal Mike tyson...

"I take my hand off to Valve... I want to eat Gabe newell's children"

And on that note, perhaps its just because I'm in a rush to get to work but I managed to get a bit stuck fairly early on in the game.

READ NO FURTHER IF YOU DONT WANT TO HEAR ABOUT THE GAME

In the part where you are running through the sewers early on in the game. You come out into an area and there are some guards on a bridge (shoot the cans to blow up part of it). Anyway, after killing the guards I can't seem to find my way out of the area? I tried stacking things to jump up on the wall but that doesn't seem to work... unless I just didn't try hard enough. ANyone know where to go?
