Half Life 1 Crashes

Post by HyPo » 10 Nov 2020, 14:13

I downloaded and installed half life completed bundle pack. i launched the desktop icon and clicked half life and the game just crashed no menu or anything just a crash to the desktop. I have tried before to play Half Life on Windows 10 to no avail.

theres also a good chance your secutiry deleted something it shouldnt, all the steam emulators are p2p and get nailed by half the security apps on the market including windows defender, and the same goes for most of the custom commandline executables in the games root folder what start the dlcs and expansions .
if this is the probblem your best shot is to exclude your games folder or hl folder with all contents to your securitys exclusion list or simply disable all the security all together.
and dont forget to reinstall so the missing files are put back.

windows defender is never fully turned off its a pain in the ass lol, can u upload some screenshots of the folders so we can see if anything is missing?
if nothing is missing you could give these a shot https://www.techpowerup.com/download/vi ... ll-in-one/
i dont remember if the game has an extras folder with redistributables but might be an idea to check.

I uninstalled all visual c+++ and installed them back and it still crashes i can not seems delete directx versions and net framework because when i search it in control panel programs uninstall program nothing i also tried the same thing in settings. i uninstalled steam and it also crashed i executed the game twice and it also crashed. i went to hl1.exe right click properties compatibility and force run it on 640x480 and it also crashed.

So I was just checking the thread. The only solution I can suggest you is having a legit windows copy and reinstalling it. I recently downloaded the repack and I can play every game from it. If you're curious, I have legit windows 10 which I bought.
