    Nope :( says my CD Key is associated with my account so thats activated cuz I also got my receipt straight away when I registered it. Some other people are getting the same message as me @ http://www.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=176833

    I just hope this is sorted out soon, I've not even experienced the game yet. I've also sent an email to valve lol.

    Bit of old news for you nuG, HL1 was delayed a year as well...simply because they knew the game wasn't fun to play. So they rewrote practically everything and made it one of the best games ever.

    ^You couldn't ask more from a game developer than that.

    I'll slightly agree with you on Cs:s and steam blowing, simply because we haven't seen their full potential yet.

    If your feeling sick while playing HL2 you should try adjusting your FOV in game. I was getting sick then i adjusted the FOV, and now I don't. To do this type "sv_cheats 1" in your console, then type "fov XXX" for your desired fov. I think the default fov was something like 75, i changed mine to 110, but from what i have read anything between 90-110 are pretty good.

    PS Have you seen the man in the blue suit with the briefcase?

    don't give anythign away gonz0 ;)

    and just FYI, I believe most games default to FOV of 90, but i believe in real life if you have 20/20 vision it's 100-110

    I won't pr0d. Either way though, changing my fov to 110 fixed my feeling sick so it's all gravy.

    mhhh gonna try the fov settings. I looked in the config and there are some intrestings settings... well they sound inresting. force preload sound good.. maybe it will stop that stuttering when sound loads
    sv_forcepreload "1" //changed
    anyway:

    I read the vast majority of this thread (only skipped pages 9 and 10), but didn't see many comments on this.

    How is Half-Life: Source? Is the entire game updated, anything missing, look nice, ect? And does anyone know an ETA for the release of Day of Defeat: Source?

    wooooohhh the fov thing does make things a lot better and no more motion sickness for me:

    everybody open console and type fov 90
    thats what farcry is default at. i wonder why hl2 uses 75... maybe to make people sick.

    Wow this game is amazing. I'm not really getting that much stuttering (yet) It seems to be ok.

    1200 x 900 All settings high. 2xAA set in game, 4xAF set in game. Awesome graphics. I tried out my 5.1 sound first- now I am using my new Sennheiser PC150 headphones. Wow, amazing sound too. I get very very slight stuttering sometimes, but really not worth mentioning.

    Using 4.11 Omegas, no Vsync and AI set to normal.. One of the only times I can say the 50 bucks was worth spending on a game. Totally amazing. :eek:

    Yea, I'm really amazed at how well this game runs, D3 I couldn't run aa/af without horrible framerates, with HL2 I have aa @ 4x and af @ 8x and it runs smooth as butter.

    it doesn't work like that. you have to enable cheats first :

    sv_cheats 1 (turns client cheats on)
    default_fov 90 (choose between 75-120)
    sv_cheats 0 (turns cheats off and saves the settings)

    i didn't experience motion sickness, but i think the the game controls and feels better at fov=90.
